Houstons, we still have a problem.
Mother of the departed Whitney Houston, Cissy Houston, is still struggling with her granddaughter — Whitney’s only child — Bobbi Kristina, and has now resorted to that old chestnut … the “open letter” … in hopes of getting through to the allegedly wayward young woman.
Bobbi Kristina has been subject to rumors about her apparent substance abuse, grief over her mother’s death and engagement to Nick Gordon, a young man who Whitney Houston apparently cared for at one point like a son. Usually there are hysterics over Bobbi Kristina and Nick Gordon being raised as “brother and sister,” but the reality is far less tawdry.
(But it’s still kind of suspect depending on how you look at it. Does he love her, or love the lifestyle he’s become accustomed to? Only time will tell.)
Because of this, among other things, the Houston family is not happy with Bobbi Kristina’s behavior.
“Krissi, all I want for you is your good health and your happiness,” she writes. “I want you to have a good life that you can be proud of. Do I want you to get married in the near future? No, I don’t. I think you’re too young and I wish you’d wait. But that’s because I’m Grandma. I’m supposed to worry about you. I’m supposed to wonder if Nick or ANY man is good enough for you.”
She went on to share that she’s not angry with Nick Gordon and has never said anything negative about him. “I have NEVER publicly commented on your personal life and I don’t intend to,” she followed up. “So in the future when you read or hear that Cissy Houston said this or Cissy Houston said that, be confident in the knowledge that it isn’t true.”
Well, it’s good to clear that up … in the press … for all of us to see.
Is the Houstons’ hot mess getting too much for public and is it time to stop the open letters and get private? Are you ready to see this family work it out without an audience?
