Last night, Whitney Houston’s mother, Cissy Houston, 78, sat down with MY9TV.com’s Brenda Blackmon for her first one-on-one interview since her daughter’s death.
In the interview, Cissy said that Whitney was not broke when she died and blamed the media for reporting false information about her daughter.
“The media are awful,” she told MY9TV.com’s Brenda Blackmon. “People have come from here and there, [and they] don’t know what they’re talking about. People I haven’t seen in 20 years. … Here they come, [they] think they know everything, but that’s not true,” she said. “But God has his way of taking care of all of it, and I’m glad I know that. They really chopped on her, chopped on her … kept, kept, kept.”
Cissy added, “I know I did the best I could … I don’t blame myself. I know I did the best I could for everything.”
“My children are my whole life. She was very special to me, very special. She was my only daughter, and a good one,” Cissy said.
