In this emotional interview with New Jersey television station WWOR, conducted amid persistent reports on the circumstances surrounding Whitney Houston's death, Cissy Houston defended her late daughter's reputation and chastised the media for negative coverage of and speculation about her.

"I'm very proud of my daughter; she accomplished a whole lot in the short time that she was here," Houston said. "She's not broke. She's not anything. None of that crap."

"The media are awful. People have come from here and there, [and they] don't know what they're talking about. People I haven't seen in 20 years ... Here they come, [they] think they know everything, but that's not true," she said. "They really chopped on her, chopped on her ... kept, kept, kept."
