Last night, two weeks from the one year anniversary of the late icon’s death, Oprah’s Next Chapter aired Oprah’s interview with Cissy, who definitely didn’t hold back.
Cissy opened up to O on everything from Whitney’s rumored lesbian relationship with her best friend, Robyn, to her tumultuous romance with Bobby Brown and drug use.
Oprah also asked Cissy about the moment she found out the unfortunate fate of her daughter, whom she called Nippy, last February.
“My son called me and he was screaming, ‘Mom, Mommy,’ “Then, oh God. I said, ‘What is wrong, what’s wrong?’ He just said, ‘Nippy. Nippy.’ I said, ‘What’s wrong with Nippy?’ He said, ‘I don’t know, I can’t go back up there …”
Whitney’s brother was referring to the Beverly Hilton hotel room, where her lifeless body was found.
“‘They found Nippy.’ I said, ‘They found her what, what?’ And I was getting annoyed because he wasn’t telling me anything. He said, ‘Mommy — ‘I said, ‘Is she dead?’ And he said, ‘Yeah, Mommy, she’s dead.’ And I don’t remember too much else after that.”
So sad… we cannot even begin to imagine.
The near 80 year old also mentioned she was alone when her son made the dreaded phone call and that she was “a wreck.”
We pray her mind gets at peace concerning the loss of her daughter
