Cissy Houston pens open letter to Bobbi Kristina


In her final plea, Grammy Award-winning singer Cissy Houston has penned an open letter to her granddaughter, Bobbi Kristina. As previously reported, Cissy and Kristina had quite the falling out due to grandma Houston’s cry for attention by penning “Remembering Whitney,” an open letter to her late daughter, despite the fact that the two hadn’t spoken for several months.

Will Houston’s heartfelt words strike a soft chord in Kristina’s heart and mend their broken relationship? Look at Cissy’s open letter below. – ruthie hawkins

Dear Krissi,

I love you. My heart is full. I don’t know where to begin.
You may think I don’t understand you and what you’re feeling but remember, Baby, I lost my mom when I was just a child. So, I do know some of the sadness and loneliness of your life since your mom passed away.

Although I know her spirit is with you always, I cry with you and for you. I grieve with you and for you … for all of the days and nights you need to tell her something or ask her advice or just hear her voice … and she’s not there. I know the times when you need to put your head in her lap or feel her arms around you and she’s not there ; for the good and happy times you want to share with her; for the fun and laughter you enjoyed together, but she’s not there … for every day and every night you just miss her … I know.

She was your mom and she was my child and, I loved her too, more than you might imagine. I know you were upset that I wrote my book, Remembering Whitney, but I hope one day you’ll read it and understand that I just wanted to let the world see some of My Nippy — the sweet, friendly, loving little girl with the extraordinary beauty and boundless talent, who grew into the superstar and musical icon the world saw. I want people to know — fans and critics and ordinary people alike —Nippy was a whole person, and like all of us, she was good and bad and she was my joy!

Krissi, all I want for you is your good health and your happiness. I want you to have a good life that you can be proud of. Do I want you to get married in the near future? No, I don’t. I think you’re too young and I wish you’d wait. But that’s because I’m Grandma. I’m supposed to worry about you. I’m supposed to wonder If Nick or any man is good enough for you, My Baby’s Baby. I’m not angry with Nick and I don’t think, nor did I ever say anything hurtful about him to anyone. I have never publicly commented on your personal life and I don’t intend to. So in the future when you read or hear that Cissy Houston said this or Cissy Houston said that, be confident in the knowledge that it isn’t true.

I’m trying very hard to trust that people who make comments or offer their opinions about you are sincere in their desire for you to be happy. I can only hope they come to realize the best they can offer you is their prayers.

Krissi, as many years as I’ve lived and as many experiences as I’ve had I know I don’t have all of the answers. I do know this, Baby Girl: God’s got you and so do I.
With all my love,

    I can only hope Krissie acknowledges her Grandmother. She is the one that truly loves her and life is so short, she will forgive herself if she does not love and respect what her grandmother is trying to convey. This is what Whitney would have wanted, This is a wonderful family and I am praying they will be reunited the way Whitney would have wanted. I pray for Bobby Kristina because these is a mean and cruel world if you do not have the wisdom and foresight to be humble and listen those who have already walked the path she getting ready to walk.
