WATCH: Cissy Houston Still Blames Bobby Brown In Interview With Oprah

Cissy Houston sat down for a much anticipated interview with Oprah Winfrey. Honestly, it’s hard to keep watching interviews about this family because one, Whitney “Nippy” Houston is gone, and two, the family is in denial about their addiction issues. Ms Cissy still holds Bobby Brown accountable for Whitney Houston’s decline in her new book, Remembering Whitney. Strangely though, all three of her children were addicts at some point, and now her granddaughter, Bobbi Kristina, is dealing with substance issues apart from her father, and mother.

I do believe her life would have turned out differently. It would have been easier for her to get sober and stay sober. Instead she was with someone who, like her, wanted to party. To me, he never seemed to be a help to her in the way she needed. {Source}

To me, it sounds like Whitney’s family were not able to help Whitney they way she needed it, either. In fact, Whitney’s brother, Michael, finally confesses to Oprah that he’s the one that introduced Whitney to hard drugs. Perhaps Bobby Brown didn’t make it any better, but he became an addict, too while with Whitney. No offense, but sadlyWhitney Houston was introduced to drugs with the family, and she died from the use of drugs (with drugs in her system) while with the family. Before and after Bobby Brown, Whitney battled with addiction.

During the interview with Oprah, Ms Cissy also admits that she didn’t want to confront Nippy about her drug use because she was too scared of pushing Nippy away.

I was so afraid of scaring her away. I didn’t say a word to her about her appearance, I feared if I said something, she would shut me out.

It was Gary, Whitney’s oldest brother, who finally made the call that it was time to send Whitney to rehab. Bobby Brown DID NOT stand in their way, he knew she needed help:

He [Bobby] didn’t do anything. He didn’t try to prevent it or anything like that. I can’t say that.

Also, it sounds like Cissy has an estranged relationship with Bobbi Kristina over this new book. She also reveals that Bobbi Kristina may have an issue with drugs, but will not call her. She confesses that she doesn’t hate Bobby Brown, just the way he treated Whitney, but is open to talking to Bobby. Ms Cissy also hints that Pat Houston didn’t do anything to “protect” Nippy as Pat stated when she and Gary sat down with Oprah last year. Lastly, in the saddest part of the interview, Michael says he introduced Whitney to smoking crack and snorting cocaine in her twenties, and will never forgive himself. He’s still battling an addiction after a relapse back in October.

Whoa! Jesus heal…
