Whitney Houston's mother, Cissy Houston, spoke Thursday with Brenda Blackmon from My9 "10'Clock News" in New Jersey -- the grieving mother's first exclusive interview since the tragic death of her daughter in February.
Blackmon sat down with Cissy at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey, where Whitney Houston's funeral was held, and talked about the way the media has handled Whitney's death.
Elton John, 65, revealed his drug habit was once so severe, he's lucky he didn't suffer the same fate as Whitney Houston.
Whitney Houston's full autopsy report may offer more clues about whether the singer suffered a heart attack before her drowning death, according to officials on Friday.
The full report is expected to be released in a few weeks and may include test results and physical descriptions of Houston's heart and whether she did in fact have a heart attack.
With the official cause of Whitney Houston's death now released -- accidental drowning due to atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use -- a new TMZ report says someone may have removed all traces of cocaine from Whitney's hotel room as a way to hide evidence.
The L.A. Coroner's Office said in their report Whitney used cocaine "immediately prior to her collapse." But investigators who arrived on scene found no traces of the white powder or any other illegal substance.
The official cause of Whitney Houston's death has been released by the L.A. Coroner's office, which cites accidental drowning, with cocaine use and heart disease as the main contributing factors.
Along with cocaine, "Extra" has learned other drugs where in Houston's system, including marijuana, Xanax, Flexiril (a muscle relaxant), and Benadryl, but they did not contribute to her death.
Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, doesn't really care what her grandmother, Cissy Houston, has to say about her burgeoning relationship with "adopted" brother, Nick Gordon.
Sources close to Bobbi Kristina told TMZ the 19-year-old finally confirmed to friends she and 22-year-old Gordon, who Whitney unofficially adopted 10 years ago, are indeed dating.
TMZ reported Cissy saw the video showing Bobbi and Nick holding hands and kissing on a lunch run in Atlanta this week -- and told a close friend, "What [Bobbi and Nick] are doing is incestuous."
But Bobbi disagrees, telling her friends she doesn't consider dating Gordon incest because he is not her blood brother.
A source said Bobbi "can't please everyone, so she is going to please herself by doing what she wants to do for once."
Whitney Houston's mother, Cissy Houston, is reportedly upset over granddaughter Bobbi Kristina's romantic involvement with Whitney's "adopted" son, Nick Gordon.
According to TMZ, the bereaved grandmother was less than thrilled to see video of Bobbi Kristina and Nick kissing and holding hands. Cissy told a close friend, "What they're doing is incestuous." Cissy believes Bobbi Kristina is going through a rough patch and feels Nick is taking advantage of her.
