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."

Now ain't that the pot calling the kettle black. Ms. Cissy has run her mouth about anybody and everybody being the bad influence (especially Bobby Brown, still and always will be the father of her grandchild she needs to remember) and THEN she states she is worried about how Whitless will be remembered??? Did Cissy ever watch her angel on "Being Bobby Brown"?
As for her statement "Everyone makes mistakes, only god can judge." that's the same kinda hypocritical bullsh$t that makes holy rollers such a turn off. When the crap is on their shoe it don't stink but put it on the other persons foot and ew weeeeee.

Face it. You and the entire crew turned a blind eye to her ongoing issues right up the end. If blame goes anywhere besides Whitless, it's on you idiots closest to her.

Was anybody surprised there was cocaine in the hotel room? Anybody? Somebody? No! So why is her mom so surprised?

maybe she should remember that before she decides to place all the blame on bobby brown. im not saying he didnt have a hand in it (her drug addiction) but whitney was an adult who made her own decisions. her family needs to remember that!

Mrs. Houston is correct. Now might be an excellent opportunity Harvey to release a statement explaining why you report in the way that you do, and about the content of your reports. You are repeatedly criticized for the sheer volume of Kardashian reports, even though there are massive comments made, never in favor of anything Kardashian and many not in favor of you for choosing to make them. Let Whitney rest in peace and her mother grieve i n privacy with the every detail being made pubic with a special report from TMZ. You are not the New York Times or the Washington Post and I think TMZ would do well to remember that.

We, as addicts could cure cancer, but all we would be remembered for would be for our addiction, clean or not, too bad, RIP W.H.

I just read someplace that all of her children were into drugs. The brothers and Whitney. I wonder where they went wrong?

Give me a break. Her mom was devasted? Really.

Her mom sat back and enabled Whitney for 25 years as Whitney married Bobby, smoked crack, smoked pot, to daily Xanax pills, etc etc.

For her mother to act all surprised and shocked is BS.

Her mother knew she was an addict and she didn't care as long as Whitney brought in the money and kept it all together. No one has been big enough to speak out about her addictions and what a failure she was in the past 15 years. Of how she ruined a wonderful career and life, by making stupid decisions.

So much could be learned from her life and her choices. She should be a poster child for everything wrong with the Popstar life. The drugs, the bad decisions in your love life, the danger of an Entourage of hanger ons.

She wasted her life. Tell her mother to stop wasting her Death too. Make something good come out of it...

Yeah, where are "tell it like it ain't" Al Sharpton, and the Rev. Jackson on this crack head. Definetly could get more PR than a gang banger from Florida. I guess Al is afraid of losing his main stream TV show and the big bucks. He seems to have gone somewhat main stream.

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

Isn't that what everyone says when they're in the wrong?

Don't know if its true or not but I did read somewhere Whitney wasn't all that fond of her mother - it was more an act for the camera. If Whitney's brothers were also into drugs, where does some blame belong - right smack in Cissy's lap - she is calling Bobby Brown out (which may or may not be warranted) but before she does that, she better look at herself and accept responsibility. Maybe too overbearing and pushy. Right now I think Cissy has some nerve looking to Oprah and Clive Davis and maybe others to give Whitney's daughter a job?

I like what TMZ does. They put the stupidest nonsensical and most likely blatantly misleadingly false thing as headline. Thus inviting the stupid commenter's who take this stuff seriously and are also their target audience for the advertisers. You gotta love American culture.

There is NO WAY Jesus and God will let her in heaven now, she was baptized and because of this now she will be in a limbo state. Limbo meaning in between Heaven and Hell.
I hope the police are going to try to find her enablers. Where did she get her crack at?
