    Who didn't know? This is a 40 year old story. Let it rest.

    I hope Whitney does. But it would have been SOOO much better had her family, and society in general, let her live in peace.

    Could be its for her own-well being that Robyn (befittingly), finds a need to officially clear the air and end the whispers. Whitney is gone, but Robyn isn't.

    On THE TODAY SHOW this morning, the reporter showed a brief interview with her. She has a new book coming out called "A SONG FOR YOU-My Life With Whitney Houston".

    In the filmed brief interview, she said that she felt compelled to show who Whitney was behind all the fame. She said that the physical part of their intimacy stopped before Whitney became a star, but they remained friends for years and she was one of Whitney's closest confidants.

    The reporter said that the family has not responded to requests for comments. The reporter said that when Whitney died, they had been estranged for a number of years. She had been Whitney's Creative Director but when Bobby came into the picture, Robin was forced out. The reporter says that Whitney started using cocaine at the age of 14 and Robin was using it with Whitney on the road as well and that when Bobby Brown came around, that didn't help.

    The interview shown was very short - although the reporter said that he talked to her for a long time - so I wondered why the reporter was giving so much third-hand information instead of just showing more of the interview.

    He then said that there would be a special DATELINE hour this Saturday at 9 p.m. called A SONG FOR WHITNEY.

    He also said that Robin will also be on THE TODAY SHOW live this coming Monday.

    It definitely is a while back but I suppose this is the definitive confirmation of a relationship - itís just in places like Canada and Europe no one cares if you are gay or bisexual or straight anymore - just Cissy!

    Iíve always been surprised that there wasnít a tremendous amount of sales activity surrounding the deaths of Aretha Franklin or Whitney Houston - nothing compared to Elvis Presley or Michael Jackson

    Whitney's songs actually did do well post mortem. I think IWALY went to #2 on the Hot 100...

    But it doesn't seem that any of her albums ever appear on the charts - like Elvis the Beatles and Michael Jackson

    Yeah, albums wise, she didn't do too good. Which shocked me. I would think Arista would be stocking up CDs! Whitney was a huge deal too. One of the few African American women artists to truly be a GLOBAL POP SUPERSTAR (Diana, Whitney and Tina).

    Not to dilute your argument, but I would add Janet to that list.😁

    That's the way I look at it. Everyone, including Bobby, had something to say about Robyn so now she's talking for herself. If it were only about money she would have written this book long ago.

    I've seen on IG that Cissy recently went on a charm offensive (defensive?) with a minister to publicly state that she has evolved away from her anti-queer stance. On the other hand, I've also heard that Cissy is not in the best psychological shape of late, either. Not sure what to make of any of it.

    Good for her if she has.

    In Canada, the Conservatives had the election in the bag and lost because they had a leader that couldnít cope with abortion, same sex marriage and walking in pride parades.

    So what if it is all about my money. Money is king.

    FIST-BUMP!! I agree entirely. After all, it's Robyn's life, too.

    That would be great but I always have to cast my queer side-eye at these late-life 'conversions'. The damage has long been done ...
