Whitney Houston’s mother Cissy Houston, 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 interview she speaks to My9 at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, NJ, where the funeral was held. My9 says 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.”

Cissy stated she watched over Whitney and Bobby Brown‘s daughter Bobbi Kristina who is now back in Atlanta.

“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. 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.
