Cissy Houston is finally speaking out about Whitney Houston‘s death. With her local news station, and after nearly two months of silence, Cissy opens up about her arduous emotional journey.
“I have my moments,” she says when asked how her road to emotional recovery is going. “I’m not there yet. I don’t think I’m any more courageous than anyone else. I am a true believer in God, if I could bring her back I would, but that’s not possible.”
Despite the circumstances surrounding Whitney’s death, Cissy says she must look past those facts and not hold herself accountable for her daughter’s addictions and longtime battles with substance abuse.
“I know I did the best I could. I don’t blame myself. I know I did the best I could for everything. My children are my whole life. She was very special to me… she was my only daughter, and a good one. Looked out for her family . . . 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.”
We wish you all the best, Cissy!
The interview airs next Monday on My9‘s 10 O’Clock News.
