Cissy Houston: Whitney’s Doing Wonderful

Cissy Houston assures us that Whitney Houston is A-OK – though has no inkling how the troubled diva’s first album in seven years will fare.

That’s because she hasn’t been privy to her daughter’s comeback project as it takes shape under the direction of legendary producer Clive Davis.

CAPTION: “I’m just chillin’ right now and enjoying my life,” Cissy (above, at last year’s GospelFest) tells us.

Interviewed on Timothy Hodge, Cissy – a Grammy-winning gospel singer who has done backup duties for the likes of Elvis Presley and Aretha Franklin – hints that Whitney is indeed on the road to a full mend.

“Whitney is fine,” she tells host Timothy Hodge. “She’s doing wonderful.”

“She’s got a new record coming out in September or – I think the single might be released in July,” adds Cissy, 75, of her baby girl, who was reportedly drug-addled in recently years before checking into rehab.

Adding to Whitney’s woes at the time was then-hubby Bobby Brown, who also grappled with substance-abuse issues, and whom the Greatest Love of All singer finally divorced in 2007.

When Timothy asks if she has heard any cuts from Whitney’s new album, Cissy replies, “No. I’m gonna hear it whenever you hear it.”

Timothy also inquires how Cissy injured her ankle in February, when she was seen – hobbling along on a cane – arriving at Clive’s pre- Grammy bash in Beverly Hills to watch Whitney perform.

Apparently misunderstanding the question, however, she recounts another ankle-breaking mishap, this one inadvertently brought about by collaborator Luther Vandross, who passed away in 2005.

“Years ago, I fell in my elevator at home. I had act- ually come from a session with Luther. I had went in and overdubbed some things that he had asked me to do. And he left me some flowers there,” says Cissy, who, along with Patti LaBelle, CeCe Winans, J. Moss and others, will be featured at the McDonalds GospelFest in Newark, N.J., on June 13.

“And so I’m bringing these flowers home in the car and everything went fine. When I got here I should’ve called my maid.

“But I didn’t. I said, ‘Ah, man, I’ll take’m upstairs myself.’

“And, you know how in the elevator there’s a space between when you stop? My heel went down in that. And I kept walking and my foot went around like that and it was like ahhh!”
