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?
