It’s been six weeks since America and the world lost one of its favorite singers–Whitney Houston. But it was a whole different loss for Cissy Houston, Whitney’s mother, and now she’s breaking her silence by giving WWOR/Channel 9 an exclusive interview.
Anchor Brenda Blackmon sat down with Houston Thursday evening at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark where Whitney sang in the choir as a child, and others sang at her funeral. The interview airs tonight on the Ten O’Clock News.
And in that interview, Houston came out swinging when asked how the media handled coverage of her daughter’s death.
“The media is awful…they think they know everything…these people don’t know anything about her…the media doesn’t know what they are talking about…” She added, “They really chopped on her.”
Cissy Houston had a much different feeling when discussing Whitney.
“I’m very proud of my daughter. She accomplished a whole lot in the short time that she had here… she was a very wonderful person.”
