Cissy Houston: Cashing In on Daughter's Death?

by at . Comments

Cissy Houston has remained mostly quiet since the February death of her daughter, but it was announced earlier this month that the mother of Whitney Houston will be releasing a memoir about her child's life in early 2013.

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?

After all, Houston left a majority of her fortune to 18-year old daughter Bobbi Kristina.

"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.

What do you think? Is Cissy Houston simply seeking to profit from her daughter's death?

Ask anyone w/ a grain of good sense and they would tell you that writing is cathartic and helps to help.

Why would Cissy wanna cash in on her daughter when Cissy is a famous singer in her own right?! Leave that woman alone and let her grieve!

Writing is a healthy way to grieve. I am very glad that Mrs. Houston has chosen to write a book. I will buy it without reservation.

If everyone else around Whitney is cashing in: why not Whitney's mother?

If she doesn't do it. Someone else will. Maybe she just wants to get her thoughts out. I'm sure she loved and still loves her daughter very much.
