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."

two cents    

Her denial is part of the reason Whitney's dead. Yes, her daughter was talented and well loved and then she pissed it all away for drugs and died a druggie. That IS what she will be known for. She should be a poster child for every other coke head celebrity. Then maybe she won't have died for nothing.

I can imagine Ms. Houston being somewhat upset about the rather "public" disclosure of the intimate details surrounding her daughter's death. No parent would want to be in her position but the "LEGACY" Whitney Houston left behind was primarily HER OWN DOING!!! If any "GOOD" comes out of her death, it serves as a stern "WARNING" to many aspiring singers who are determined to follow in her footsteps. Talent, fame and wealth won't save you from imminent "self-destruction" unless you value "YOUR" life above all else. Our bodies are GOD'S TEMPLE and we should always "REVERE" the "BLESSING" of "LIFE"!!! Death comes to us all soon enough in ITS OWN TIME!!! Args Longa, Vita Brevis!!!

I feel bad that she lost her daughter, but this whole thing stinks of denial. This turning a blind eye is how Whitney was so enabled in her behavior

So we shouldn't judge Whitney but she wants to judge Bobby Brown? Makes sense

So Cissy, you want people to remember your daughter for LIP-SYNCHING the National Anthem? That's pretty sad.

Maybe now they'll stop blaming Bobby Brown for all Whitney's problems. The reality is Saint Whitney was a 50 year old woman out buying crack when she should have been raising her teen daughter.

Her drug use didn't hurt anyone but her!? How do you figure that? It crushed her daughter to the point of hysteria!! Any dummy who thinks drug use has no effect on the people around them is really mistaken!!It does!!Geez!!Same goes for alcohol use!!

Clearly it is apparent that anyone can judge. The mother herself is judging her right now, simply with the speculation of how the singer might be remembered.
Perhaps she meant to say that only Gods judgement mattered?

Cissy should not be upset, she should be crying for an investigation! Where is the attorney for this family? I have never seen so many contradictions in my life, first they reported by news and by Ray the bodyguard she was found in cold water and she was cold, now she is found in scalding hot water with scalding burns on her back and other parts, with water about to overflow over the tub and also water on the floor, etc. Who turned the water and the music off- that Ray said was playing when he left Whitney alone in the room? Why would they do a sexual assault kit on her? Was she attacked? First someone cleaned the scene, now all sorts of residues and spoons and crack is being found each day. How did her reports get released with all of that personal info, doctors, prescriptions, etc. what about HIPPA regulations for medical information, its a total mess.

I vote for pathetic loser. However I do feel people are entitled to do what they want with their lives. Without deterioration there can be no redemption.

she was a big druggie, for years even prior to hooking up with bobby. it will take some time for fans to lose the images of her from the horrible reality tv show with bobby, magazine covers of her looking all messed up, etc. all i think right now is what a waste. and everyone around her should be charged as criminals for abetting this situation.
