Cissy Houston,the mother of the late R&B superstar Whitney houston is getting ready to release a tell-all book about daughter.
New York times reports Cissy met with publishers in New York this week to shop a book about her daughter.
Affectionately calling her daughter “Nippy,” her childhood nickname, and appearing emotionally and physically drained, Ms. Houston met with publishers in a suite at the St. Regis Hotel.
Ms. Houston, 78, described the book as the real and definitive story of her daughter, the pop legend who died on Feb. 11 in Beverly Hills at the age of 48.
Talking about the book proposal to publishers, Ms. Houston seemed eager to set straight what she called “lies” about her daughter that have circulated in public discussion about her. She said, ‘There are so many lies out there and I want to dispel all of those lies,’ one publishing executive said, “It’s going to be the bad, it’s going to be the good."
The book, to be called “The Whitney I Knew,” will capture personal stories and anecdotes that reveal Houston’s warmth, generosity, and humor, the publisher said in a statement. It is expected to be released in July.
