Cissy Houston Speaks Out For The First Time Since Whitney’s Death

The loss of a child must must be the ultimate state of pain. 

Whitney Houston’s mother, gospel singer Cissy Houston, 78, who spoke to her daughter just a half hour prior to her being pronounced dead, is absolutely devastated by the lost of her beloved daughter.

The gospel and soul singer, 78, breaks her silence about Whitney’s shocking passing and its aftermath in a TV interview with New Jersey-based My9’s 10 O’Clock News airing next Monday.

In the chat (conducted at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, NJ, where the “I Will Always Love You” singer’s funeral was held), Cissy admits her mourning process is far from over.

“I have my moments,” she admits. “I’m not there yet. I don’t think I’m any more courageous than anyone else. I am a true believer in God, if I could bring her back I would, but that’s not possible.”

But Cissy says she can’t hold herself responsible for her daughter’s demise in her later years. “I know I did the best I could,” she says. “I don’t blame myself. I know I did the best I could for everything.”

“My children are my whole life,” Cissy adds. “She was very special to me. . she was my only daughter, and a good one. Looked out for her family.”

“I’m very proud of my daughter,” says Cissy, who famously appeared in her daughter’s “Greatest Love of All” video. “She accomplished a whole lot in the short time that she had here …she was a very wonderful person.”

The full interview airs next Monday on My9’s 10 O’Clock News.

Whitney’s legacy will continue to live on. She is and will always be an icon.

The MF Life

     I wish the man that ripped Melanie Fiona’s heart from her chest would stop biting and chewing at is slowly and just go ahead and swallow the whole thing.  Her sophomore album, “The MF Life”, picks up where “The Bridge” leaves off.  The thirteen track album is a mish-mosh of “my man ain’t right” studio R&B.  Lyrically trite, the album gives the impression that Melanie Fiona is stuck in a snow globe, waiting for her lover to come home, pull it from the shelf, and give it a shake. A pretty girl problems album, MF Life fails to deliver the vocal grittiness needed to deliver the level of pain that would make me want to join her in Busting the windows out her man’s car.  I just say, “Get a new man!”

     There are a few cameos that push the album along.  J. Cole, Nas, and B.O.B. offer some flavor to the album on tracks, “This Time”, “Running”, and “Change the Record”, respectively.  John Legend also offers his river boat gambler swag to L.O.V.E.  Without these tracks, the c.d. makes a hell of a coaster.  

     When I first heard Melanie Fiona’s voice I was convinced she would reach greatness.  I now believe this can only happen if she finds her own lane and ditches the formula she is using now.  If you are a fan of spending lonely nights in your room looking through old pictures and college love notes, this album is for you.    

“Did I Do That????”

Actor Jaleel White has a lot more to say when it comes to his ex-girlfriend and baby mama Bridget Hardy who told Star Magazine that White abused her verbally and physically in 2010.

“The allegations made against me back in 2010 have suspiciously resurfaced in time to coincide with my new show on Syfy and Dancing With the Stars; Bridget Hardy has consistently shown a knack for timing throughout our child custody disputes,” he tells E! News in a statement.

“When you’re doing well in life it’s par for the course certain individuals will try and knock you down. When the individual is also the mother of your only child it is particularly hurtful. I have co-parented in peace and compliance with the law for over two years now.”

“My only hope is that when my daughter Googles her parents one day in her future, she sees that her father acted with class and dignity when pressed to the fire. Bridget Hardy is the mother of my only daughter in this world and without Ms. Hardy I would not have the treasure that is my daughter. God knows the truth, the authorities swift dismissal of her police report are 2 years in my past.  I ask for your sensitivity during this time, I can assure all of my fans this is only residue from a child custody matter.”

Guess Who?

     I once had a client tell me that “stereotyping saves time”.  Does it also save LIVES?  Add a hoodie and we’ve got ourselves a split second decision!

“Ballliiinnn” w/ @FluffyDaBody1

     

Yesterday the RVAlien asked what would you do with the mega millions…The jackpot is up to almost half a billion dollars! I drifted so much into dreaming about that money I decided to write about it, (so WHEN I win you can read this blog and know what my moves are). I’ve taken the liberty to list all my dreams below:[[MORE]]

    

      Because my momma raised me in the church, I’m going to give 20% in tithes.  Different churches and ministries who need help will submit an application for this offering.  As long as they are working to give back to the community and their preacher aint driving a Maybach from a store front in Churchill while the members riding in a 1979 church van, I’m willing to help.

      

     My momma will be “tooken” care of next. She’s always wanted to drive a drop top Saab and sit in a sunroom overlooking the lake, so she will have that. My family will have a place to live. Oh yall negro’s “gon” have to work, but you will have a free place to live. Then, I’m going to take a vacation with all my siblings, this vacation will include good times but therapy to bring us all together.  (I love all of you.. Kris, Cathy, Binah, and the rest that are yet unfound.  Yea, my daddy was a rolling stone! LOL) 

      

     I’m not going to move, I’m going to invest in my city! I’m going to work with investors to bring a major basketball or football team to our city. This will bring more revenue and jobs to Richmond, VA.

 

     I’m going to start an organization to help educate single mothers.  This would include computer skills, interviewing techniques, budgeting and home ownership.

 

     Now on to Fluffy! Did I say it was my turn?  Of course I’m getting the BMW 650 convertible! Of course I’m getting a beautiful home interior designed by my daughter.  More Louboutin’s than he can make, the Bebe store in my closet and some new titties! (A new rack like Chrissy from Love & Hip Hop. Aren’t they amazing???„,I digress) Did I fail to mention I’m shutting down the Stadium with my closest friends and family.

 

     While I was dreaming, I realized that all the above are achievable (in moderation). Most of these are the desires of my heart (especially a new rack)  My point is, with hard work my heart can be satisfied. Even with that said, HELL YEA I bought me a ticket to the mega millions! 500 million dollars?? 19 million a year for 20 years or 350 lump sum payout?? BALLLLLLLLLINNNNNNGGGGGGGG!!! Move over Bill Gates, the Jean-Louis’s got new money!  

What Would You Do If You Hit The Mega Millions?

 No one matched all six numbers in Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing. The estimated jackpot has grown to $500,000,000. The next drawing will be Friday, March 30, 2012.

What would you do if you hit the Mega Millions?

Spike Lee Links Elderly Couple to Trayvon Martin’s Death

Spike Lee inadvertently shared the wrong address for George Zimmerman, the Florida man who killed Trayvon Martin, when he retweeted Twitter user Marcus Davonnne Higgins’ post that included an address that actually belonged to a random elderly couple.

And now the couple, David McClain, 72, and his wife, Elaine, 70, have found themselves in the center of the controversy. They told the Smoking Gun they’re “afraid” due to the online linking of their address to Trayvon’s killer. “We’re keeping everything locked.”

The McClains, who both work for the Seminole County school system, are now considering legal action.

“Maybe we should get a lawyer and send a cease-and-desist letter to Spike Lee,” Elaine said.

This is my (@HueMorris) guilty pleasure of the week! So far I’ve watched it 5 times and each time it gets better. I do, however, have some questions.

1. What is an SSBBW porn star?

2. If you can walk in 5-6 inch heels, why are you dancing in your Fred Flintstones

3. Are we supposed to be rocking Fedoras with our lingerie now or was Rainbow having a bogo?

4. Where did you find the World’s Slowest Treadmill and is it hard to dance on?

5. Are you related to Fred “ReRun” Berry? 6. When is check out time at the No Tell Motel?

The SMARTER sex???? w/ @MsDemiT

RVAlien Family…sorry my posting is delayed.  Life takes precedence!!

Now, let me tell you just a hint about myself.  I’m a native of Virginia.  I’ve lived in various areas from Farmville, born and raised; to Northern VA for 6 years and now currently residing in Henrico county.  I’m a Mom of one and living life to the fullest. Thru a few storied (to put it mildly) relationships with quite a few less than equivalent men (though great sex and much fun) I’ve decided to write a guide on how to deal with these less than stellar characters!!! As my ex-boyfriend called me (to his therapist) Ben Laden Jr. starter kit. I’m the friend that ALL my friends call day or night when they have a problem with their man.(My ex said as I have a book on what to do-I do in my mind; tried and proven methods.)  Women are not the weaker sex but we are deffinately the smarter.  We just have to unleash our full brain capacity when dealing with the true weaker sex….

[[MORE]]

Now what makes them the weaker sex is ther inability to think beyond their dick.  The first thing you as a woman have to do in dealing with ANY man is find out what they care most about.  Trust me this goes a long way in the long run.  Store this information in your MUST KNOW file.  Some women try to get a social security card a birth certificate.  If you’re seeing this man as a potential future baby daddy then maybe.  However, if that be the case and you feel the need to steal a social then perhaps you need to rethink your choice.  A man worthy of being your child’s father is a man that you will never have to MAKE pay child support, they accept their responsibility willingly.

 I digress, this is not about the responsible upstanding future baby daddy or future husband.  This is about the sexy fine ass motherfucker that you want to have sex with and you know he ain’t about shit but you just have to have him and then your dumb ass gets sprung.  Then you want to have him and he is a liar, a cheat and probably still living with his momma. Which by the way, is so when he stays with whichever bitch du jour he can always pretend he’s in the house asleep and not have to worry about you knocking on the door at four in the morning.  As a respectable woman you’re not gonna go and knock on his momma’s door or blow up the house phone at 4 a.m.  You “KNOW” he forgot to plug his phone up before he fell asleep so it died.  He has an iphone and the battery life is short.  He’s always on craigslist looking at cars or wtf ever. (This is all the shit that I used to  hear from the current love of my life( the great fuck son of a bitch))  The same one that can talk up to 10:30-11pm around his blood family so you can hear them in the background then he’s asleep after that.(After that time, he’s on his way to his real home or his main girl’s house)  NEVER believe ANY of the lies!! If it sounds like a lie no matter how hard he made you cum—IT IS!!!  NEVER LET YOUR GUARD DOWN!!  Not with this type anyway… that will be a major mistake and a hard lesson learned.  Stay focused…NEVER forget your first impression-HE WAS JUST SUPPOSED TO BE A FUCK!!!
