Earlier this week, Cissy Houston spoke about the tragic reality of her granddaughter, Bobbi Kristina’s, permanent brain damage and her unresponsive condition. Now, Houston is speaking about her family again and this time she’s talking about her late daughter, Whitney Houston, and why she thinks Bobby Brown was a bad influence on her.
In an interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” host Kevin Frazier asks Houston if she thinks about Whitney every day.
“She’s my baby,” Houston said of Whitney. “I had two boys before her and I never wanted boys. I love them. They know I love them. But I always wanted a daughter.”
After being shown a touching video of her daughter discussing how loving her mother was to her, Cissy spoke about the good person that Whitney was. However, she claims that Whitney was pulled down by a “bad partner,” whom we assume to be her ex-husband, Brown.
“Whitney was a very soft and easy person. She was kind. She was free-hearted. All of that, and sometimes people didn’t treat her nice … Whitney got caught up somewhere,” Houston claimed, adding, “This business is really bad, you know what I’m saying? But she did the best she could.”
She added, “My baby tried. She did. She just had the wrong partner, you know?”
When Frazier later claims that Houston had a “great husband,” but Whitney didn’t, Houston nods in a agreement and replies, “Yeah, I did.”
Well, it’s clear that Houston still doesn’t hold Brown in the highest regard, and at this point in her life, we doubt she ever will.
