Cissy Houston Out Promoting Her New Book


Cissy-Houston-Book

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.

  1. I guess while Whitney was writing them checks they didn’t know she had a drug problem for 40 years? Now that she’s dead, they all have concern? Yeah ok.

  5. Does Miss Cissy even know what day it is at this point? Nobody cares more about what the Houston family has to say. We all know how Whitney was livin and we all know what killed her.

  6. Please. Cissy’s mouth is still attached to her daughter’s corpse, suckin every bit of bone marrow out of her. The black community didn’t fail Whitney Houston. Whitney Houston failed herself. Til the day she killed herself she had mad resources and access to a road leading to permanent help and a radical lifestyle change… YET WHEN SHE DIED SHE HAD COCAINE IN HER SYSTEM. She, with Bobby’s co-signage, failed herself and she failed her daughter in the end.

    • She’s still in denial. Her own son turned Whitney to crack, not Bobbi. Tired of these grandma’s trying to pray away their wayward children’s problems. Whitney had social anxiety issues, like Michael Jackson, Elvis and other celebrites being watched every moment of their lives. She should have done what Brittney’s father did, have her commited and take over control.

  32. Whitney introduced Bobby to that white girl and HE hasn’t been right ever since. Bobby was a weed head before Whitney and that is a far cry from what she got him on. Cissy comes off as wanting more from her children than what she gave them emotionally. They were separated for years before Whitney’s death. She should have taught her children to take ownership of their own decisions instead of enabling them by passing blame on others.

I thought what she was saying was when your around people that do what you like it’s hard to stop, and I agree with that. Truth be told they were bad for each other, and it was a very toxic relationship altogether, but that doesn’t change the fact that she’s gone. RIP Whitney!

  35. Whitney said herself SHE was a functioning addict BEFORE Bobby. She admitted he was NOT the reason she did drugs, she was doing drugs BEFORE! I guess no one wanted to listen to her and it was easier to blame Bobby. That princess was a persona from marketing. It was her job, when the cameras rolled she worked, cameras off clock out time! The sad part is Clive and so many turned their head to her drug addiction,as long as she put on that gown and made them money!!

  36. I really don’t understand why her brother would bring her into the drug world, knowing that she was at the beginning of her career, and was already selling millions of records. I think the family’s problems were worse because there was so much money, and access. It literally was an unlimited existence for getting drugs.
