At first I was a wreck knowing Robyn was gonna write a book, about their relationship. But I received the book as a Christmas gift from my kids, do I am reading it. And I must say reading it help me to understand why Robyn felt as though she should let the world know what really happened. Why I still think their intimacy was between them, I believe every word that I have read so far. Including how Whitney’s family, friends and Bobby just used her and didn’t care about her as a person more less a family member. Cissy should be ashamed of herself. 😢

Whitney had the most beautiful voice, like a bell that rang out for far too short a time. I miss you Whitney. I wish you were here to do NPR Tiny Desk. I know most of your voice would have returned with a little work. You are missed and I hope you know you were loved by so many people of all colors, ages, etc.

Whitney experimented, that was all it was. If she loved women, she wouldn't have moved on to men. That being said, RC could have left well alone too. Let the woman rest in peace and love

Still attacking Bobby Brown even if on the sly. Really? Why didn't Eddie marry her? . . . Hmm is that in the book too.

This interview was bad! One thing I hate about an anxious journalist is when they keep pressuring a guest like they're on a witness stand in court. I know he's trying to get answers, but he's very dogmatic about it. Also, he keeps hounding her about the drugs Whitney used as if that was Whitney's whole life.

I'm glad she told her side of the story. Everyone else spoke about Whitney so she has the right also. Robyn seems like she is still hurting about Whitney having died.

Let Whitney rest in peace. Its obvious she's looking for clout. She sounds verrrrryyyy trachy. They forget about her now she got the attention. No one with half a brain.

The interviewer is so rude. His facial expressions and tones are so judgemental, suspicious and despising of Robyn. So unprofessional!

I mean if there's rumors circulating about me for years and ppl putting my likeness in movies or in books...yeah id probably tell my side eventually..esp if it's my truth..its not all about the money. she probably aint wanna die without telling her truth sometimes that stuff is hard to watch...yeah Whitney never talked about it...but there wasnt these biopic out either when Whitney was alive. I applaud her courage to come clean knowing ppl are gonna judge ..

Exactly’ everybody else told her story, why dismiss hers! Stupid people who thanks she don’t have rights to share something that’s been in all these movies & films! Can’t believe she waited this long to tell!

Whenever someone famous dies, everyone who knew them including family wades in with stories that “Only they could tell.” They make a pot of money doing so and say it’s what the famous person would have wanted. I’m sure the dead person would have wanted their privacy to be respected but they no longer have that option.

You are a dirty dirty friend to do Whitney like this! You will only be remembered for 15 minutes while Whitney will be remembered for generations to come! How dare you betray her memory in such a way!

Whitney was blatantly bisexual..she was very sexual - period - with women and men..this is 'common practise' now-a-days with young people and it is accepted. Some men love men and some women love women and some love both...BIG DEAL..and to Whitney's family and friends who oppose this fact due to religion or whatever...GET A LIFE! Humans are sexual creatures. End of.

I’m not shocked Whitney was in an abusive relationship with BB....she was raised by a narcissist, makes sense. Feel bad for Whitney Houston

I find this very sleazy. It shouldn't matter if anyone else talked about it, she should have enough class to Not talk herself.

Thank you. I too think it is horrible. Whitney is not here to refute any lies she may tell. She is just trying to get folks to buy her book. She has nothing else that would sell a book other than her Whitney stories.

Would any of us want someone to put our business in a book we were hiding for the world to read? No one should feel good about this book because we have all done something in this life that we don't care for anyone to know whether we are dead or alive. She is going to owe the publisher if she received an advance. All of Whitney's true fans should not support any of them who have so much to tell now that she is six feet under. This is a low budget move!
