Bobbi Kristina won’t read Cissy Houston’s book
Says its disrespectful
Cissy Houston has opened up about losing her daughter Whitney in a new memoir, but her granddaughter Bobbi Kristina doesn’t appear to be happy about it.
On her Twitter account last week, the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown expressed her displeasure about the book, which is called “Remembering Whitney.”
Brown, 19, tweeted that she and her reported beau, Nick Gordon, “personally have NOTHING” to do with Cissy Houston’s book.
“I ask youplsRESPECT [that],” she added. “Haven’t read&won’t ... I find it 2B Disrespect2MYMOTHER & me being HERDAUGHTER won’t tolerate it.”
As reported by USA Today, “Remembering Whitney” is a frank examination of Whitney Houston’s life and death from Cissy’s perspective.
On her relationship with Bobbi Kristina—or Krissi, as Cissy calls her—the 79-year-old told the paper that they don’t get to spend a lot of time together.
“We hope and pray for Krissi,” Cissy says. “She lives in Atlanta while I’m here in New Jersey, so I don’t get to see her that often. And you know how 19-year-olds are - you call them on the phone, and they don’t always pick up. It’s difficult. But she knows how much I love her.”
I believe the children are our future, teach them well and let them lead the way

As the world mourns the untimely death of international pop icon Whitney Houston, broadcast media continues to rehash the 48-year-old’s rise to fame, public battle with drug addiction and tumultuous marriage to entertainer Bobby Brown.
But these portrayals are just one side of the Newark, N.J., native.
LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Dionne Warwick, one of the most recognizable pop voices of the 1960s, filed for bankruptcy last week citing more than $10 million in tax debt dating back to 1991.
Warwick, 72, made hits out of many Burt Bacharach and Hal David songs and won five Grammys in a 50-year career. The singer is down her last $1,000 in cash and only owns furniture and clothing worth $1,500, according to the Chapter 7 filing in New Jersey.
LOS ANGELES, Calif.—Deputies handcuffed singer Bobby Brown and led him from a courtroom to a jail cell Wednesday morning, as Whitney Houston's ex-husband began serving time for a drunken driving conviction.
Although the judge sentenced Brown to 55 days behind bars for his second conviction in a year for driving under the influence, he will likely be free in eight or nine days, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore.
Obsessed fans can be a downside of stardom. It’s why Whitney Houston’s character hired Kevin Costner to protect her in the 1992 movie “The Bodyguard.”
The real life Houston had the FBI helping to protect her more than two decades ago when a “loner” in Vermont warned in 1988 that he “might hurt someone with some crazy idea” if the singer did not acknowledge him.
LOS ANGELES, Calif.—Viewership for Sunday’s Grammy Awards ceremony on CBS dropped nearly 30 percent from last year, but was still the second-largest audience since 1994, according to figures released today by Nielsen.
