Daily Dish: Whitney Houston Opens Up on Oprah
Whitney Houston shares new details about her rocky past with Oprah
As we recently detailed, Whitney Houston has had a roller coaster of a past with many ups and downs. Now, she’s finally revealing to the world what sparked a turning point in her life and made her strong enough to return to the music industry she loves.
For the 24th season premiere of The Oprah Winfrey Show, which airs on Monday, Oprah sat down with Whitney for two days to get the full scoop on what exactly happened to the pop diva as she struggled with her marriage to Bobby Brown and spiraled into drug addiction. As it turns out Whitney’s mom, Cissy Houston, was the one who took action to turn her daughter’s life around.
As Whitney tells Oprah, Cissy stormed her daughter’s house one day armed with police officers, a court order, and a determination to get Whitney out of the dumps and back on her feet.
Whitney recalls her mother saying, “I’m not losing you to the world. I’m not losing you to Satan. I’m not doing this. I want my daughter. I want you back. I want to see that glow in your eyes. That light in your eye.”
“Now looking at it, I see the love and passion that my mother had for me and she has for me,” Whitney says. Don’t mothers always know what’s best? (CNN)
