HarperCollins has announced that Cissy Houston is writing a memoir on the life of her Grammy Award-winning daughter Whitney. Cissy Houston has a deal with the publisher for the "unabridged and unbelievable" story that's scheduled for a February 2013 release.
"When I lost my daughter Nippy [Whitney Houston's nickname], the world lost one of the most beautiful voices and an extraordinarily beautiful and charitable woman," said Houston in a statement. "In sharing our story in this book, I hope to give her fans something to treasure, the way we all treasured Whitney . . . I hope reading this book will provide a deeper understanding into my daughter's true story."
Just last month, Houston's family, including Cissy, landed a Lifetime reality series titled The Houston Family Chronicles, set to air later this year. Whitney Houston died on February 11th in Beverly Hills, California. She was 48.
