As the mother she was I don’t think she tried hard enough to get Whitney the help she so desperately needed. If I had been Cissy Houston I would’ve done everything within my power to save her from the drugs and to hell with everyone else. If it meant putting her in an extremely secured place where she could not escape or leave because of who she was I would’ve done so. No one tried hard enough to help her get rid of the drug demons. Considering the facr Whitney was stubborn I would’ve got someone to arrest her and keep her in jail or somewhere locked up until she got sobered from the drugs. No one tried hard enough to help her is the bottom line . She should be remembered for her music and her talented singing and not the drugs. She was a gift from God and it’ll be the next lifetime before we ever, ever get a singer like Whitney – talent like this is very rare. God gave and God took – rest in peace Whitney and find it with God in heaven since you couldn not find it here on earth.

This is important – it could save the life of the next Whitney or Amy Winehouse or whoever. This is all too common a story in entertainment. As for being jealous, no, I think she was overjoyed with her daughter’s success – just upset that she threw it all away, let it consume and destroy her. No mother can watch their kid do to themself what she did and not be emotionally shattered. Telling the raw, unvarnished truth is part of the recovery process.

Talking about Whitney in such a vindictive and spiteful manner. What kind of mother says these things about her deceased daughter? I am livid at the lack of love shown by Cissy Houston. My view of her has changed dramatically. All in all, it seems that Cissy was hiding feelings of jealousy and resentment towards her daughter. Whitney achieved and lived a career Cissy never could. Cissy knew that her sons Michael and Gary were involved in Whitney’s drug use. This story gets worse and it makes me see what type of family Whitney really had. Whitney is not here to defend herself. How could her mother do something like this.

I will give Whitney Houston the benefit of the doubt. She is not here to defend what is being said about her. However, what kind of mother would speak so vile of her dead child? No matter how bad a child is when they have died you should either be crying about their wasted life or putting it to bed and never to be heard from again until God judges. This piece is a shame. This constant drum beat of homosexuality and drugs will be the death of this world. God have mercy on us all.

Would I have liked my mother to write a book about me? Never. Would I believe I could write about my children? Again: Never.

Anyone who reads this book must be aware it shows only one facet of Whitney’s life, from one person’s perspective. And one who, if to be judged by this article, is possessive as well as jealous (which doesn’t mean there couldn’t be love in there as well.) Her daughter learned singing and microphone techniques from her, and she calls it “stealing”? I would call it learning. If those techniques worked for Whitney but not as well for her mother, there was a reason for that.

That said, I feel for her grieving family.

Foibles, being what they are, can be more difficult for celebs because they use their personal power and money, to retard efforts to help them by their loved ones, managers and handlers.

Not only are celebs judged more harshly, they’re frequently more vulnerable to the weaknesses of the flesh. They find themselves trying to juggle the multiple personalities of who they are and who they’re perceived to be by the public.

My point is that the pressures on celebrities are many times greater, the expectations of them dealing with those problems greater, but their abilities normal or less so because, let’s face it, unless they’ve had professional training or help, they react like anyone else. So it’s easy to to expect more of them and if it’s not forthcoming, then they’re blamed as somehow being deficient — of not living up to expectations held by people who didn’t even know them.

I feel for Cissy; Whitney is her only daughter and she must be heartbroken over her death. Fame, power and drug addiction are a deadly combination. My heart goes out to Cissy and I am appreciative of her writing what sounds like a very honest book about the daughter she tried to save.
