Whitney Houston’s mom, Cissy, has written a book about her daughter, which from the looks of it is pretty depressing.
- Actress Ariel Winter (“Modern Family”) is 15.
- Actor Elijah Wood (“The Lord of the Rings”) is 32.
- Singer Nick Carter is 33.
- Actress Rosamund Pike (“Jack Reacher”) is 34.
- Singer Joey Fatone is 36.
- Comedian Mo Rocca is 44.
- Ex-Playmate Barbi Benton is 63.
- Dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov is 66.
- Actor Alan Alda (“Wanderlust”) is 77.
“Remembering Whitney: My Story of Love, Loss, and the Night the Music Stopped” will be released Tuesday, almost one year after Whitney’s death. Cissy’s description of Whitney’s house alone is disturbing: “I stood in shock,” she writes in an excerpt printed in the New York Daily News. “It was dirty and messy. … Somebody had spray-painted the walls and door with big glaring eyes and strange faces. Evil eyes, staring out like a threat.”
Cissy also describes finding a framed picture of Whitney with her head cut out of the shot--“It was frightening.”
“I knew if she was in half as bad a state as that house, she really was in trouble,” Cissy wrote.
