Cissy Houston has done her first interview since the passing of her daughter Whitney Houston. Cissy sat down this past Thursday night to talk with My 9’s Brenda Blackmon, a New Jersey TV anchor.
The interview took place at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J., the church where Whitney first sang for the congregation as a young girl; and also where Whitney’s funeral was held on Feb. 18th.
During the interview, Cissy Houston says her daughter “accomplished a whole lot in the short time that she had here” and “was a very wonderful person.” She says she doesn’t blame herself for what happened to her because she knows she did the best she could.
Whitney Houston’s death has been ruled an accidental drowning, with heart disease and cocaine use listed as contributing factors.
The interview with Cissy Houston will air this Monday night at 10pm on MY9. Please see a preview below:
