Cissy spoke to People magazine’s Elizabeth McNeil ahead of the publication’s release and questions what she could have done differently:

‘Was I a good mother?’ she asks. ‘I still wonder if I could have saved her somehow. But there’s no book written on how to be a parent. You do the best you can.’

“She started partying, and she didn’t really know how to stop,” Cissy, 79, wrote of the Grammy-winner. “I want people to know the truth about her, how she really was.”

On the lesbian rumors:

‘I know nothing about that. I didn’t want her with my daughter,’ Mrs Houston told McNeil.

‘There was something about the way Robyn carried herself, a kind of arrogance, that I didn’t like.’

But she admits, Robyn was one of the first to alert her to Whitney’s drug use.
