Cissy Houston, the mother of the late Whitney Houston, has broken her silence about her daughter's passing. Watch her first interview inside and find out what she had to say about people throwing dirt on her daughter's legacy. Also, get the deets on Bobbi Kris' new acting gig which has now been confirmed.
"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, very special. She was my only daughter, and a good one."
That's what Cissy Houston told WWOR's Brenda Blackmon as she broke her silence about the death of daughter Whitney Houston two months ago.
Cissy used her first video interview to express her outrage over the media's handling of the death.
"The media are awful. People have come from here and there, [and they] don't know what they're talking about. People I haven't seen in 20 years. ... Here they come, [they] think they know everything, but that's not true. But God has his way of taking care of all of it, and I'm glad I know that. They really chopped on her, chopped on her … kept, kept, kept."
Cissy also got tense about folks lying about Whitney's money. "She's not broke. She's not anything, none of that crap," she said.

And on television.....
Whitney's only daughter Bobbi Kristina has landed a role on Tyler Perry's TBS sitcom "For Better or Worse." Rumors have been floating for about a week now, but Tyler's rep just confirmed. Though no deets have been released about the role, it's clear that Bobbi Kris plans to follow the footsteps of her parents into the entertainment world. Not sure if this is for the best at this moment (too soon?), but time will tell...
