Cissy Houston says her daughter “accomplished a whole lot in the short time that she had here” and “was a very wonderful person.” She says she doesn’t blame herself for what happened to her because she knows she did the best she could.
Whitney Houston’s death has been ruled an accidental drowning, with heart disease and cocaine use listed as contributing factors.
On if she had any regrets about the way her daughter was raised: “I know I did the best I could. I don’t blame myself. I know I did the best I could for everything.”
On the media coverage Whitney’s death: “They think they know everything. These people don’t know anything about her. The media doesn’t know what they are talking about….Whitney did not die broke. She’s not broke. She’s not anything … None of that crap.”
On how she’s doing since her daughter’s death: “I have my moments … I’m not there yet. I am a true believer in God. There’s nothing I can do about it. There’s nothing nobody else can do about it. If I thought I could so something to bring her back, that’s exactly what I’d do, but I know that’s impossible.”
