Whitney Houston’s Mom DISGUSTED By Invitation To Pre-Grammy Party Honoring The Late Singer

It’s almost been a year since the great Whitney Houston passed away before Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy party.

And now that it’s that time of year again, many have been wondering what will happen with the legendary bash.

Clive and the Recording Academy will not only be honoring Whitney at the party this year, but it will still be held at the same hotel where the singer was found dead and in the same ballroom where the news was broken to guests.

And while we don’t know what is yet planned for the tribute to Whitney, we do know her family has been invited which has one of them PISSED.

Whitney’s mom, Cissy Houston, is outraged Clive would invite her to a party where her daughter passed away as she commented:

“I got an invitation to the party, which is the most obscene thing. I don’t know why they would want me to come to the party in which she died, you know? Unheard of … I guess maybe he just sent me a copy for remembrance sake.”

We can definitely understand why she’d be so opposed to the whole thing, but we’re sure Clive meant no harm or insult in inviting her as he’s just trying to pay Whitney the honor she deserves. He said:

“She was this generation's greatest, greatest singing talent. So we'll do something over the course of the evening Saturday night to show that … It's very much with me and she'll be with me.”

Although Cissy might not agree with his handling of everything, some of Whitney’s family does. Her brother and sister-in-law, Gary and Pat Houston, have accepted Clive’s invitation to the annual bash. Pat revealed why they’ve decided to attend:

“We're going in support of Clive to show our appreciation of him as he honors Whitney.”

And we hope the event does right by the wonderful Whitney and her untimely death.

    The Jews bury the dead quick and move on.

    Sometimes a simple "No, thank you," is enough.



  3. 3

    she is so outraged she ran to the nearest tabloid to complain…………………why am i not surprised?



  4. 4

    Another mother in complete denial that her daughter was a drug addict! Like the Jacksons. And the granddaughter hasn't a chance unless the family gets real, and acknowledges the problems that led to WH early and untimely death.

    the whole family is trash…

    But not disgusted enough to halt the release of her book about Whit. Cut me a break…can't help but wonder if Clive is indeed Whit's dad which would explain Cissy's "disgust".

    Cissy Houston needs to back off, the more I have read about Cissy and listened to her rants and especially the interview with Oprah, I can see why Whitney and her brother resorted to drugs. She, Cissy is never happy or satisfied I am sure she put so much pressure on Whitney and was never good enough. She needs to look in the mirror and face the real person responsible for her daughters problems. It is shameful, true shameful Cissy…

    Chances are she'd be outraged if she didn't get an invite. Is the world suposed to stop because her crack head daughter od'ed. Great Parenting!

    After seeing her interview with Oprah, I think she is one ignorant woman…ghetto really…she would have had issues with Whitney being gay (poor Whitney must have suffered because of that)…her mom is a bigoted homophobe…I will never understand the ignorance of a minority to hate another minority…ugh.

    Re: Praire Dog – Her mom was not an open, loving woman…that is obvious….IF Whitney were gay, that mom must have worked a head-trip on Whitney…not good, not cool…Whitney must have suffered from her mother's anti-gay stance…just sayin'.

  16. nope says – reply to this

    That family is trash…ignorant trash…Whitney suffered and I am not so sure it was partially due to that mom of hers…deep therapy for that family…although-it is too late…sadly. IGNORANCE really has no cure. That brother of Whitney's should be put away…douche loser.

    Cissy show some class, Clive's party is an ANNUAL event, its not going to stop because whitney died. It was sweet of him to invite you, accept or don't but this is nothing to be ugly about.



  18. 18

    This is ridiculous. He invited her because he is doing the tribute to Whitney and it was the right thing to do. Not like Whitney dropped dead in the middle of the party! It was not the party that caused her to die- Whitney caused her own death. Cissy likes to complain and play the martyr. Its the only way she can stay in the limelight now that Whitney is gone.

    Who wouldn't understand that Cissy would feel that way? I have a feeling that it's always going to be too soon for her. She was her beloved daughter.

    I ADMIRE MS. HOUSTON FOR WHAT SHE IS DOING, IT IS NOT PROPER TO ATTEND THAT FUNCTION AND IT APPEARS THAT THE ONLY REASON THE OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS ARE ATTENDING IS BECAUSE THEY APPEAR TO BE MONEY HUNGRY VULTURES THAT IS TRYING TO MAKE A NAME FOR THEMSELVES FROM WHITNEY FAME!!!!!! TOTALLY DISGUSTING AND SICK!!!!!!
