Aretha Franklin did all us pupils at the Skewl of Camp a favor earlier this year when it came out that she faxed over her true thoughts to Dionne Warwick over some lingering beef from Whitney Houston’s funeral. The throwback use of communication would normally deter a normal soul from lobbying any jabs, but no-no, henny. Ms. Patti LaBelle is no normal being, and she’s regretting that gel manicure she got on Monday because it’s Wednesday, and she’s ready to (subtly) sink her claws in to Miss A-Screech-a Franklin.

Alleged ghost-humper Bobby Brown has written a memoir called Every Little Step, and thanks to a recent interview with 20/20 and some people getting their hands on a copy before its release, we’ve learned a lot, mostly about Whitney Houston.
Bobby claims several things about Whitney like the first time he saw her do coke was on their wedding day, he isn’t the reason she got hooked on drugs, they used to do drugs in the house, he hit her once and she was in a long-term relationship with her assistant Robyn Crawford. Well, Whitney’s mama Cissy Houston isn’t happy that Bobby’s memoir reads like a tacky tell-all about Whitney’s messy life and she’s calling him out.
Cissy has proven many times that she has a very low tolerance for Bobby B’s fuckery (or just fuckery in general, really). So it’s not exactly a surprise that she would swat at Bobby in a statement she gave to People. Especially since Whitney isn’t alive to respond to any of Bobby’s claims and their daughter Bobbi Kristina isn’t alive to help provide the receipts. Cissy’s full read of Bobby is after the cut.
Bobbi Kristina Brown barely flew up to heaven to be with Nippy a few days ago, and you’d think that maybe the Houston and Brown families would put all their stupid bullshit aside for once and come together. But well, if People is telling the truth, they’re back to their messy ways.
Bobbi Kristina’s funeral is set for Saturday in Atlanta, GA. After the funeral, she will go to New Jersey to be laid to rest next to Whitney Houston. That’s apparently pretty much all the Houston and Brown families can agree on. A source tells People that there’s still many arrangements to be made, but the families are having a hard time agreeing on anything. That strong wind that hit all of them in the face hard is Whitney trying to slap some sense into them.
“Both sides [of the family] are still not happy and on the same page,” says the source of the Browns and Houstons. “There is a lot going on behind the scenes. There is a lot to do in a very short time.”
Adds another source: “Things are constantly changing.”
I’m not sure why they’re not on the same page. It seems like it would be pretty simple. Second Cousin Dionne Warwick will open with a song, Cissy Houston and Bobby Brown will close with a song, Aunt Tina will handle the refreshments and Nick Gordon won’t be around since he may be in a jail cell. Actually, scratch Aunt Tina from refreshments, because she shouldn’t be around glassware.
A little over a week ago, Bobby Brown decided that someone should be in charge of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s financial situation while she remained in an unresponsive state in a Georgia hospital. Bobby threw up his arm and volunteered to do it, so to speak, by filing for guardianship of her estate. I hope Bobby hasn’t gone ahead and ordered any custom checks in Bobbi Kristina’s name, because a judge recently took Bobby’s request and tossed it in the trash.
According to the NY Daily News, Bobby Brown was denied control over his daughter’s finances by Judge Jeryl Debra Rosh during a hearing this week. He has, however, been granted co-guardianship along with Bobbi Kristina’s aunt/Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law Pat Houston. Bobby and Pat’s responsibilities as co-guardians are limited to medical decisions. Judge Rosh has appointed an unidentified third party outside the family too look after Bobbi Kristina’s money. Bobby and Pat released a joint statement saying they “are appreciative of the manner in which Judge Jeryl Debra Rosh handled this matter.”
Pat Houston still controls Whitney’s estate, so even though she’s not in control of Bobbi Kristina’s current financial situation, it’s still up to her to decide how much of that goes to Bobbi Kristina. Currently she’s received less than 10% of it.
I wonder who this unidentified third party in charge of Bobbi Kristina’s money is. It’s definitely not her boyfriend Nick Gordon, because he would have already announced it during an interview with morally-corrupt walrus Dr. Phil. Maybe it’s Jesus? It would make sense; we have been bombarding him with endless requests to take the wheel on this messy situation.
Here’s Pat Houston and Cissy Houston visiting Bobbi Kristina at the hospital on Thursday.
There are many things that Cissy Houston hates like Bobby Brown, the thought of Whitney Houston clit wrestling with her best friend, lesbian stuff and gay stuff, but what she really hates is the invitation she got in the mail for Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party on Saturday night. Whitney Houston died hours before Clive Davis’ annual party last year and this year he’s paying tribute to her at his party and invited the entire Houston family. Gary Houston, the brother who said to Whitney many years ago, “Whitney, meet crack, crack meet Whitney,” is going to the party, but Cissy Houston is not. Cissy Houston tells Access Hollywood that she was so offended by Clive’s invitation that she clutched her pearls, slapped a grandchild and ripped off her wig (and Cissy doesn’t even wear a wig!). Cissy said she’ll never go to a party at the same hotel where her daughter died.
“I got an invitation to the party — which is the most obscene thing. I don’t know why they would want me to come to the party in which she died, you know? Unheard of. I guess maybe he just sent me a copy for remembrance sake.”
So let’s see…
Clive Davis inviting Cissy Houston to his party = OBSCENE! UNHEARD OF! TRASHY! DISGUSTING!
Cissy Houston making money off of a tell-all about her daughter’s life = none of those words above
Got it, Cissy!
And here’s Cissy at the unveiling of four new wax statues of Whitney Houston at Madam Tussauds in NYC yesterday.
Cissy Houston Doesn’t Like Bobby Brown And Doesn’t Like The Thought Of Whitney Lezzing Out With Her Best Friend
On Oprah’s Next Chapter last night, the Houston family matriarch pimped out her book on all things Whitney Houston and Oprah asked for her thoughts on a few rumors about her late daughter. Oprah brought up a part in Cissy’s book where she talks about Whitney’s relationship with best friend Robyn Crawford. Whitney was the Oprah to Robyn’s Gayle King and there were rumors that the two bumped ‘ginas under the moonlight and were in love for many years. Cissy writes that she knew about the speculation that Whitney and Robyn were gayelle lovers and when The Mighty O asked her if she believed the rumors, she said this:
“I don’t really know. I thought, I didn’t particularly like her. She just spoke too disrespectful sometimes, like she had something over Nippy. I didn’t like that at all. She was alright. She turned out to be alright, I guess. That was her friend.”
Cissy told Nippy that she didn’t like Robyn and didn’t want her hanging around Robyn, but Nippy did anyway. Cissy knew that Nippy’s heart wrapped around Robyn’s heart, but she didn’t know for sure if her mouth ever wrapped around Robyn’s love box. Oprah asked Cissy if it would’ve bothered her if Nippy was a lesbian and she didn’t flinch when she said, “Absolutely.” Oprah seemed surprised and asked the question again using different words. Cissy once again said that she wouldn’t have liked it and wouldn’t have condoned it.
Cissy’s eyes when she said that! She didn’t even flinch. It’s like her eyes said “No, I wouldn’t have liked it if they were straight dykin” and “Yes, I can smell Gayle’s poon on your breath, Oprah, and I don’t like that either!” Cissy is super into all things Jesus and is older than Methuselah, so it’s not surprising that she wouldn’t have embraced Whitney’s gayelleness. But then when Oprah asked Cissy if she was happy when Bobby Brown came along, she said, “No.” Cissy Houston hates Bobby Brown too.
Then when Oprah brought out a giant cupcake with sprinkles on it and asked Cissy if she liked that, Cissy said, “No.” Oprah tried something different and brought out a pink basket full of fluffy kittens wearing tiny hats and asked Cissy if she liked that, Cissy said, “No.”
CISSY HOUSTON HATES EVERYTHING!
And during the interview, Whitney’s brother Michael confessed that he’s the one who introduced her to crack, not Bobby Brown. When Oprah asked Cissy if she likes crack, Cissy said….you know the rest.
