“She’s my baby,” Houston said of Whitney. “I had two boys before her and I never wanted boys. I love them. They know I love them. But I always wanted a daughter.”

Houston said that she was quite close to Whitney and it was unfortunate that her daughter got “caught up” along the way because, she said, of the entertainment industry and her marriage to Bobby Brown. “This business is really bad, you know what I’m saying?” she said. “But she did the best she could.

“My baby tried. She did. She just had the wrong partner, you know?” Houston said about Brown. “Whitney was a very soft and easy person. … She was kind. She was free-hearted. All of that, and sometimes people didn’t treat her nice.”
