Could Whitney Houston’s mom really be pulling a Joe Jackson?
Whitney Houston’s triumphant, heartbreaking life is being remembered in a tell-all book by her mother, Cissy Houston. Cissy has a deal with Harper Collins for a memoir it says will reveal the “unabridged and unbelievable story.”
Official financial terms haven’t been disclosed. However, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J., where Whitney sang as a child. Harper Collins says Cissy will write about her daughter’s drug problems and her marriage to Bobby Brown as well as reflect on her own grief.
Members of the Houston family are said to not too happy with Cissy. Sources close to the family say that they aren’t pleased with her plans to write a tell-all book, believing that she’s trying to cash in on her daughter’s death. Whitney left all of her estate to her daughter Bobbi Kristina, leading the family to believe this is a cash grab and not at all about honoring the late singer.
One source said the book could also be a PR move for Cissy, claiming … “She will try to come out looking like the world’s greatest mom, when in actuality, she wasn’t.”
If all goes well the memoir will be out on February 13, 2012. Will you read it???
