Whitney Houston's Mom

'DEVASTATED' By Death Report

4/5/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cissy Houston and the late Whitney Houston
Whitney Houston
's mother is "devastated" and "inconsolable" over the L.A. County Coroner's Autopsy Report that makes it clear ... Whitney was deep into cocaine when she died.

Cissy Houston is telling close friends ... she cried hysterically when she first heard about the Coroner's findings -- that white powder (which we know tested positive for cocaine), a drug spoon and other trappings of drug use were found in the hotel room. 

Cissy says her biggest fear is that people will now remember her daughter as a druggie, and not a talented singer and family woman.

Cissy singled out Whitney's performance of the National Anthem at the 1991 Super Bowl, saying, "This is the type of thing people should remember Whitney for."

Cissy added, "No one's perfect. Only the Lord can judge."

Well, something had to crash through Cissy's denial. She may be devastated now, but it's better in the long run to face the facts. Now save Krissy.

Well maybe if the media did not feel the need to make everything so public she would not have to suffer this way. I know celebritys sign up for a public life but some things (life an autopsy report posted on TMZ) are better left unsaid. I too would be devastated to read a death report of a family members, come on TMZ that is not shocking news sheesh!

Stop thinking of how others will remember her. She will be remembered and live on through the ones who loved her. Remember her as your baby and take great happiness in knowing you raised her to believe in Jesus and that she is with him now. One of her final conversations were reported to be that she couldn't wait to meet Jesus and that he must be one cool guy. That is what you are to be proud of above all she had faith and you taught her that. Hold that dear to your heart and find comfort through your faith in Jesus.

People will remember her as a junkie because she WAS a junkie. She threw away her career and her family were nothing but enablers.

Oh her poor Mother. You know what though? She may be remembered for drug use, but I really believe that her talent will persevere.
Elvis- to this day people got nuts for his music.
Michael Jackson - His music is selling like crazy.
Whitney- she became number one on iTunes.
Over time, her Mother will see that the music will be her daughter's legacy.
Yes, I know many of you hate her for her drug use, so don't even bother to read my post as it will only piss you off.
The way I look at it, that was her demon, her weakness and she did not hurt anyone with her drug use other than herself. She worshiped the ground BK walked on, even spending the prior day of her death, with BK and mothering her. BK was freaked out, almost drowning herself and Whitney comforted her.
Here's the thing- in the Autopsy, it mentioned that Whitney had scald marks on her sacrum ( lower back ) meaning that the water was way too hot and one of the things that Cardiologists warn heart patients about is to stay clear of hot tubs and hot baths/ showers in general ( Google why )and between the spicy hot peppers she ate ( part of the food she ordered ) the alcohol, the cocaine, the weed, the xanax and the scalding water, it spelled a recipe for disaster. No matter what her demons were, ( a lot of people say her drug use was attributed to her insecurities and the drugs gave her the courage to perform on stage and off ) I really hope that she went quick. Nothing more sad than the last few moments of your life being in panic and terror, knowing that you are dying.

The truth is... Whitney Houston was both... a hell of a singer and a drug addict. Frankly, it doesn't make me love her any less. She will always be my Pop Diva!

People are not going to remember Whitney Houston any better or worse than they did before. Whatever her problems were if people want to look down on her they will, but she made a lot of good music that will be remembered far more than any gossip or problems. If the family is worried about that though, they need to get a publicist or something. Instead of saying she is worried about this she should talk about Whitney's music and the plans she had been making. Whitney was dependent on drugs but that doesn't make her a bad person. People understand these things better now. Whitney's mom is just from a generation where it wasn't looked at as an illness but as a character flaw. Whitney actually seemed to be a really open down to earth person, she was funny and seemed like a real person that would be fun to hang out with. I think people will cut her slack for her personal problems.

Cissy said "No one's perfect. Only the Lord can judge."
You got that right!

I will remember Whitney for her music. The most amazing female voice that was around in my time, and her voice will last forever even when we leave the earth. People will still play her music.

Everyone were so mean of words to Amy Winehouse, but look at her youtube videos now there are more positive and love for her because she could really sing.

Too bad their life had to end because of an addiction. They are not the first, or the last. Something people have to do is keep their eyes open to help in every way they could if they do see someone go down that road.

"No one's perfect. Only the lord can judge." Cissy should take that to heart and stop judging Bobby. I'm in no way defending him but it's not right, everyone must taking responsibility for their own actions.
