“There are so many lies out there and I want to dispel all of those lies,” Cissy Houston said, according to a publishing executive who spoke with the New York Times. Those present in the meetings estimated the bidding for the book could go into the millions.
Judging from one of Cissy Houston’s comments, the book may not shy away from addressing her daughter’s personal problems.
“It’s going to be the bad, it’s going to be the good,” she told a publisher during the meeting, according to the New York Times.
However, two publishers told the New York Times that Cissy Houston didn’t appear to want to discuss the circumstances behind Whitney Houston’s death and her alleged problems with drugs during her life.
