Cissy Houston ‘refuses to sleep at the hotel where her daughter Whitney died after reservations was booked for BET Awards tribute’. BET – know they wrong for booking a room there. Â I wonder were they trying to film? Hummmm….
Sources report Cissy who is 78, is in Los Angeles to pay tribute to her late daughter, Whitney, for the BET Awards. Cissy has reportedly switched hotels after she was booked at the Beverly Hilton( This is the hotel that every award show uses) – where her daughter died in February. TMZ reports Mrs Houston plans to visit the room where the singer passed away – but plans to do so on her own time.
TMZ reports her mother’s reservation has been moved to the Regent Beverly Wilshire to accommodate her wish not to sleep at the Hilton. Meanwhile, it was revealed last month the matriarch has signed a deal with HarperCollins to tell the ‘unabridged and unbelievable story’ of her Grammy Award-winning daughter.
In a statement released last week by the book publisher, Mrs Houston said:
‘When I lost my daughter Nippy (Whitney Houstonâ€™s nickname), the world lost one of the most beautiful voices and an extraordinarily beautiful and charitable woman.’
‘In sharing our story in this book, I hope to give her fans something to treasure, the way we all treasured Whitney. We are still receiving thousands of letters each day from her fans, and I hope reading this book will provide a deeper understanding into my daughterâ€™s true story.’
The still untitled book is scheduled to come out next February. The BET Awards will air live from The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles tonight.
