Cissy Houston Writing a Tell-All


Cissy Houston has been meeting with publishers about writing a tell all book about her daughter Whitney Houston...

From The NY Times
Affectionately calling her daughter “Nippy,” her childhood nickname, and appearing emotionally and physically drained, Ms. Houston met with publishers in a suite at the St. Regis Hotel, said the people, who declined to be identified because the negotiations were still going on.
Ms. Houston, 78, described the book in meetings as the real and definitive story of her daughter, the pop legend who died on Feb. 11 in Beverly Hills at the age of 48.
“It’s going to be the bad, it’s going to be the good,” she told one publisher.
How much Ms. Houston is prepared to disclose — and how candid she will be about her daughter’s troubled marriage and long pattern of drug use — could determine the amount of money a publisher would be willing to spend on the book.
Bidding could easily go into seven figures, said the people who attended the meetings.

I really don’t think it’s gonna be a “Tell All” about Nippy. I think it’s gonna be about Cissy’s life. IMO

Veto CISPA if it makes it past both houses of congress. This legislation is harmful to the American people.

This legislation is not in the interest of the American people. We did not ask for it, nor will it help any sort of majority in any way. The ramifications of this proposed law will move us as a nation, one step closer to totalitarianism. Please stop protecting corporations and business interests over those of the people who put you into office.

SIGN THE BILL HERE. PLEASE ALERT EVERYONE! CISPA IS A DANGER TO ALL THAT USE THE INTERNET! WARNING!!!!!

Not sure how I feel about this. I'd personally rather remember Whitney as beautiful, vibrant and talented as she was during her reign, particularly in her "I'm Every Woman" video. Is all of this extra stuff really necessary?

You know what I find funny Snitch? You went all silent on the trayvon (sp)issue when people wanted you to post about it. But for some reason you won't respect Whitney enough to leave this alone. Whitney (good or bad) should be respected the same way you (according to you) gave Trayvon(sp) his respect.

I realize this is a gossip site but enough is enough. My two cents now blast away.

Well that didn't take long if it's true.

This should be very interesting in that Cissy couldn't even bring herself to admit that Whitney was on drugs; maybe Cissy knew more then she was letting on. I can imagine how hard it would be for a parent who only wants the best for their child to have to come to terms with cold hard facts that they don't want to hear/believe about their children.

Ms. Cissy writing a tell all....I wont believe it til I see it,as private as she is......and always has been. I remember when her and John separated,she went into seclusion. So this story here gonna need some more witnesses.

Bee Gee said...

Sorry if it ruins anybody's pristine view of her, but Whitney's momma been on a paper chase since her daughter's heart stopped tickin'. I also think she was involved in the pic scandal more than will ever be revealed.. Hopefully this story isn't true, but whatever..

Cissy can't be Whitney's biological mother. No resemblance at all. Maybe Dionne is her mother and she gave her to cissy and her husband to raise as their own. That's why she was so close to her "cousin".

No Cissy don't do it...don't put yourself through it & just let your daughter rest in peace!!!

3:53, Cissy IS Whitney's bio Mom. However, Whitney looked very much like her father John Houston.

You are so right 3:53, this is not the first time that I heard that Cissy was not Whitney's Bio mother. Dionne is Whitney's mother,and John is her father. I read about this on another site where Dr. Drew was interviewing her ex-sister in law monique.

I also think that they know who murdered Whitney. I heard that her family murdered her because she changed her will. I do not find it far fetched from the interview with Oprah and the 911 phone calls.

This woman will do anything she can to pay her rent because she do not have Whitney to snatch from. Everything that Whitney had goes to Krissy.

What, exactly, is she writing a tell-all about?

How she left young Whitney with assorted relatives while she and John Houston were on the road?

How she was a bad parent who had her teenaged daughter singing in night clubs and doing studio session singing before she finished high school?

How she had Whitney exposed to people who were obviously deep in the drug culture when she was a teen (Chaka Khan and others)?

How all her kids (Gary, Michael, and Whitney) ended up with serious drug problems?

If none of that will be in the book, then ain't nobody checkin' for any autobiography of Cissy Houston!

If it's not titled The Secret Life Of Whitney Houston i'm not buying it. It will be a book of complete lies. I wish Bobby would release his book already. He ain't got shit to lose. The public already hates his guts. Except for me loll.

Yea, I think Cissy and the rest of Whitney's fam need to just sit down somewhere... Why talk now?? Why do I need to hear about her "bad stuff" now, whatever, just let Whitney rest. But they can't do that, they're trying to write something and make the money before someone else does it SMH! This fam is really showing how they are all money hungry and used Whit for exactly that! I won't read or buy it..
