As the first anniversary of Whitney Houston's sudden death draws near, Oprah sits down with the singer's mother, Cissy Houston, in her New Jersey home for her first in-depth, sit-down interview since her daughter's passing.
It’s hard to believe it has been almost a year since Whitney Houston passed away. And as that sad anniversary approaches, the music icon’s mother, Cissy Houston, opens up about the loss of her daughter with Oprah Winfrey during an in-depth interview airing next Monday on the OWN network.
“My son called me and he was screaming, ‘Mom, Mommy. Oh god,’” she said about the moment she learned about Whitney’s death. “I said, ‘What’s wrong?’ He said, ‘Nippy. Nippy,” continues Cissy. (Nippy was the family’s nickname for Whitney.)
