Excerpts:

On life after Whitney:  ‘Since my daughter died, I’ve struggled with so many things.  I’m still so angry – at Nippy, at the world, at myself. Should I have done things differently? She was a person whose life and voice touched millions of people. I’m as proud as any mother could be about her daughter, but I would trade every last bit of it to have my baby back.’

On Whitney’s divorce from husband Bobby Brown:  ‘She finally got rid of him, but it was too late,’.  ‘I don’t blame Bobby for introducing Nippy to drugs.’

Cissy also shares thoughts on Whitney’s once rumored lesbian relationship and more.  Click to read those excerpts here.

    Cissy should have said all these things when Whitney was alive and could defend herself not after her death.If you can’t say something about someone when their alive than why in the hell should anyone believe you after the person passed.

    I expected to hear lies and gossip about Whitney Houston after her death from the media or so called friends or Bobby Brown even some relatives but not by her own mother.That’s just sad now I see what Whitney had to deal with in her life her own mother lying and selling her out.

    You guys are ridiculous. She was her MOTHER! and I guarantee none of you loved her like she did. Whitney stayed away from her mother because she knew Cissy would be on her about the drugs..The same way Bobbi Kris stays away. She is hurting. And before I’d wanna hear about Whitney from anyone else, I’ll take her mom.

    loveyoualwaysnippy@ Your a dumb ass and anybody who thinks like you is a dumb ass how in the hell can you say this woman loved Whitney unconditionally like a mother is suppose to,when in three months after her only daughter ‘s passing she goes and does a sick reality show based on her daughters death.Not just that she allows and goes along and helps exploit her grieving grandchild who just lost her mother now explain that too me? is that what someone does when their hurting is that what people like you call love if so I feel sorry for you.And now that her reality show has been cancelled she needs another pay check so she’s going to sell her soul and daughter out to the fullest telling lies and gossip basically anything the media and sick people want to hear,it seems that money comes first for this woman and her family not love or loyalty.If Whitney wanted her personal life and story told she would have wrote her biography her damn self do you think Whitney would have wanted a tell all book about her personal life do you think she would have wanted a reality show based on her death while her daughter is being exploited and used for profit I don’t think so.Whitney’s will said it all the only person she trusted was her only child her daughter no one else not even her mother and now we all see why.As for your last comment I rather hear from the person who served Whitney her last meal before she died than hear from anyone in that Houston family their nothing but low life,gold digging,money hungry,attention crapping,filthy,lying,stinking pigs.

    It’s funny how people don’t want to blame Bobby Brown for introducing Whitney to drugs but Bobby Brown goes on tv and straight up lies and blames Whitney Houston for introducing him to drugs and nobody questions him or say he’s lying not even Whitney’s family who so call loves her.I mean really what kind of world are we living in I guess now that Whitney’s dead she doesn’t count anymore lets just blame the dead person she can’t defend herself like Bobby Brown can since he’s alive what a shame.

    LL.PG@ you are so right you hit the nail right on the head because I was thinking the same thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just because Whitney’s dead people believe they can say anything negative about her because she’s not here to fight back it’s a sad sick world were living in.And if Bobby Brown lied about not doing drugs before Whitney Houston and that she introduced him to it than that means he lied about her doing drugs before him and he actually introduced her to it once a lier always a lier.And if he’s lying than the ones who are defending him are lying too that includes Cissy what a damn shame I feel so sorry that Whitney was part of such a family.She had no one who she could trust or who truly loved or cared about her unconditionally but now may she rest in peace with the one who truly loved and cared about her unconditionally from begining to end.

    Cissy Houston is feeding into the media frenzy they have with her famous daughter telling them every and anything they want to hear wither it’s truth or not she’s doing nothing different than what others have been doing for years to make a quick buck off of Whitney Houston’s name.It’s sad and pathetic that some of the rumors and gossip is coming from Whitney’s own mother I guess she’s pissed she wasn’t in the will but who could blame Whitney for that I wouldn’t put that money hungry woman in my will either.

    sunnydelight@ It’s very stupid that people think they should or need to speak for Whitney Houston now that she’s gone even though Whitney has already spoken for herself.She confronted and answered all the gossip and rumors that came across her way she told the world who she was nobody knows Whitney better than Whitney not even her mother only God knows her more.So are we supposse to believe what everybody else has to say about who Whitney really was and just ignore what Whitney has already said I guess Whitney is the liar and everyone else is the truth tellers I don’t think so.If she was lying about anything she was telling than her so called friends and family should have said something then not now they had many years and decades to tell us that Whitney was not telling the truth why wait until the woman’s dead and can’t defend herself to tell us that she was lying this whole time that’s dumb and cowardly and it means that their the ones lying not her.If you can’t say something about a person when their alive why in the heck should anyone believe you when the persons dead I mean seriously theses people need to leave Whitney Houston alone and let her rest in peace.But I guess the cash is too much they got to live and eat somehow such a sad place we live in when you have to lie and sellout the deceased to make a couple of bucks even if it’s your own deceased child smh.

    It would be different if Whitney’s so called friends and family were doing interviews and writing books on her life to clear up any rumors or gossip but instead their just agreeing and going along with what the media is saying and putting out.In that case if their gonna go along with whatever the media is saying about Whitney Houston than just let the globe,national enquirer,examiner, accesses Hollywood, entertainment tonight,insider,extra,and other tabloid outlets do the interviews and write her tell all book what do we need to hear her friends and family for?
