From Oprah’s Next Chapter:

While growing up in New Jersey, Whitney Houston was close to both of her big brothers, Gary and Michael. Since his sister’s death, Michael, who many in the family called Whitney’s twin, hasn’t spoken publicly. Now, Michael reveals how he introduced Whitney to drugs in the ’80s, long before Whitney married Bobby Brown.

Here’s some memorable quotes from dude’s interview with Oprah regarding his sister:

I’m living, but I’m not alive. …. I felt responsible for her, I always have. … It’s painful. I feel responsible for her. I let it go so far. You know, we were always … being together most of the time, her following behind me, you know … and then when you get into drugs, you do that together, too, and it just got out of hand. The drugs were rough. … Yeah, we did everything together, so once I was into that [drugs], then she followed suit.

Later in the interview, Whitney’s brother states that the first time she ever did cocaine was with him, and that it’s a “demon” that he needs to face every day. What a sad, sad situation all around. Really. The whole thing is just miserable and disappointing and wrong.

And also? Wow. We’ve been this hard on Bobby Brown all this damn time for no reason? Oh, wait, no—no, Bobby was still a beater and a cheater and siring a daughter who’s got incest issues. Hm. I guess there are reasons, but not the reasons that he’s most famous for. Good Lord.

    • Took the words right out of my mouth. Guess Cissie’s parenting and religious upbringing didn’t take well with her kids.

  • U hurt Bobby Brown with this BS to sell a book Cissy, you and your good for nothing drug addicted lowlife son. What you gone do Cissy, reward him with the money for more drugs. Bobby ought to sue Michael and Cissy for defamation of character, and for setting out to destroy his relationship with his daughter.

    Here’s what I think of you Cissy GTH

  • SO sad knowing the talent she possessed before royally screwing up her voice. She hid it well for a while there… She was always so platonically in love with her man Clive Davis, I wouldn’t be surprised if the record label helped keep her habit going so she’d obey & jump through hoops. Little deliveries of white powder on the downlow so their superstar can work triple overtime. It’s scary common, you guys.
