Whitney Houston’s mom opens up

Cissy Houston has a few words, and a few more, for Bobby Brown. In ‘‘Remembering Whitney,’’ the mother of the late Whitney Houston writes that from the start she had doubted whether Brown was right for her daughter. And she thinks that Whitney might not have ended up so ‘‘deep’’ into drugs had they not stayed together.

‘‘Remembering Whitney’’ came out Tuesday, two weeks short of the first anniversary of Houston’s death at 48. She drowned in a hotel bathtub in Beverly Hills, Calif.; authorities said her death was complicated by cocaine use and heart disease.
