Cissy Houston Opens Up About Whitney’s Death: “I Did The Best I Could”

|

Cissy Houston has been understandably quiet following the unexpected death of her pop star daughter on February 11. Now that enough time has passed, Whitney Houston‘s mother is finally opening up about the singer’s untimely death, as well as her struggle to cope with losing a child. “My children are my whole life,” Cissy says as part of an interview for My9′s 10 O’Clock News set to air next Monday. “She was very special to me. She was my only daughter, and a good one. Looked out for her family.” Cue the slow, steady stream of tears trickling down our faces in 5…4…3…

News of Cissy’s upcoming interview arrives on the same day as reports alleging that the investigation into Whitney’s death found cocaine in the singer’s hotel room. The presence of illegal substances comes as no surprise, however, considering Houston had cocaine, as well as a host of other medications, in her system at the time of death. “I know I did the best I could,” Cissy says of her daughter’s untimely passing. “I don’t blame myself. I know I did the best I could for everything.” Says Houston, “I’m very proud of my daughter. She accomplished a whole lot in the short time that she had here . . .she was a very wonderful person.” We’re sure at least half of that wonderfulness was Cissy.
