    I feel for Ms Cissy. She was always there for Whitney and now she has to be there for Bobby Kristina…that’s a lot for a mom.

    That grape juice i am now appealing to you to tone down on the Whitney stories. These pictures are intrusive and too personal. Can we have no more until the funeral which is for the pubic as well as the family

    actually it looks like Bobbi is holding up strong and the mother is totally distraught, Cissy’s facial expression is heartbreaking, and Dionne is walking around w/ a pepsi can,… i’m guessing everyone is being strong for Cissy who looks to need the support.

    I feel for Bobbi… The thought of loosing my mama kills me each time. I don’t know what I would do with my mama. I hope she’s doing extremely well right now and after all this is done.

    It’s sooo sad but that’s the disease of addiction. Whitney’s voice coach Gary Catona in 2005 said her vocie was ruined but he worked with her and said by 2009 it had gotten back to 75-80%. But he noticed she started to fall off the wagon again. He said he once left her house and forgot to pick up his keyboard and he saw whitney smoking. She gave him a hug and threw the ciggie behind over his shoulder behind his back. SMH. Whitney needed a full live-in rehab for 12-14 mos. She needed to get rid permanently ALL the bad influences in her life from addictions to enablers and individuals who did her no good. She needed to start anew and rebuild her team from scratch getting rid of enabling family members on her team if needed. THEN she could deal with her vocals. She needed to see larynologist and get rid of any polyps or abnormal growth from years of vocal straining, drugs, smokes. After a few mos of vocal rehab then she can think of a comeback. Sad, she never took that time to do this for herself. Her vocal coach said when ever her vocals improved, she got a new booking and stopped and went back to smoking, vices. SMH. Several rehab and vocal specialists have said the same. If she was really adamant at a coemback she needed to do this for herself. So you’re talking 1.5 – 2 yrs off before she could considered a comeback. RIP…

    @Man tak eee That’s really sad. Thanks for the info though. Never knew that. I’ll say this again like janet jackson said at the BET awards in honor of her brother, Michael Jackson 3 years ago. “To the world Whitney was an ICON. But to Bobbi krisitna, her mother cissy, and those that knew her personally, she was FAMILY.” They are basically losing a family member right now. I’m sure whitney was a great mother and loving to all people. I sympathize how they feel right now. I’ve lost people in my life too. It’s the same feeling. I’m still mourning. Love you always, nippy!
