Just two weeks shy of the anniversary death of her daughter Whitney Houston, Cissy Houston is making her rounds promoting her new memoir, “Remembering Whitney”.
The elderly mother of the late singer makes no qualms about how she thought Bobby Brown wasn’t good enough for her daughter.
“I tried to tell Nippy [Cissy’s nickname for Whitney] that I didn’t think Bobby was good for her.”
Cissy not only disses about her feelings regarding Bobby, but she chimes in on Bobbi Kristina as well. Bobbi Kristina is said to be a bit upset about how her grandmother writes of her worries that Whitney’s only child could possibly be lured into the trap of addiction. It’s well-known that Cissy Houston has been unhappy with stories about Bobbi Kristina’s hard partying — and allegations of drinking and drug use.
And although Cissy wrote the book as a loving reminder of what a great talent Whitney was, she also don’t want the way she died to define how she is remembered. Unfortunately “it will” because Whitney gained the world, only to lose her soul to drug abuse.
Cissy’s interview with Oprah airs tonight on OWN. Check your local listing for detailed show time.
