And this book deal with HarperCollins is now raising a number of questions, most notably: is Cissy simply looking to cash in? To exploit the nationwide grief over Whitney's passing?

"She will try to come out looking like the world's greatest mom, when in actuality, she wasn't," a Whitney family insider tells TMZ.
