Wow! How does she really feel…
Cissy Houston‘s new interview with Oprah Winfrey is all kinds of uncomfortable… and all kinds of fascinating. The grieving matriarch sat down with the former queen of talk television to discuss her new book, Remembering Whitney, in which she addresses a number of rumors about Houston‘s life — including the story that she had a romantic relationship with her “close friend” and former assistant Robyn Crawford.
Winfrey went straight for the juicy stuff, as per usual, and asked Houston if she believed the two had had a relationship. She then asked Houston if it would have bothered her if Whitney (referred to by her pet name, “Nippy”) had been gay, and seemed shocked by Cissy’s brutal honesty. Perhaps even more interesting is Cissy’s reaction to questions about Whitney‘s ex-husband Bobby Brown, who is often blamed for introducing the late Houston to drugs.
