Nearly a year after Whitney Houston’s death, her mother gives intimate details about her daughter whom she is still mourning.
There are details about Whitney’s earliest days singing in the church choir to becoming one of the most popular and successful artists of all time.
Cissy talks about Whitney's drug problem that led to her death last February.
There is a section in the book that Cissy addresses that some people might not have known before.
The elder Houston addresses allegations of her daughter being a lesbian and having a relationship with her former assistant/creative director Robyn Crawford.
Crawford was Whitney's longtime friend and sometimes housemate who was gay.
In the book, Cissy writes about the situation:
“I just didn’t want her with my daughter. I know nothing about a romantic relationship. That’s what everybody said but they didn’t know either.”
The former gospel singer admitted that to this day she is still tormented by her daughter’s untimely death. “I’m angry she died alone, in those conditions,” she says. “I’m still mad about that.”
"Remembering Whitney" hits store Jan. 29, one day after Cissy’s exclusive sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey for "Oprah’s Next Chapter" on OWN and her interview on the "TODAY" show.
