Cissy Houston opened up to Oprah Winfrey  in an intimate interview that touched on her famous daughter, Whitney Houston’s sexuality. Cissy revealed that if Whitney had came out as being gay, she would have not been okay with it.

The famous singer in her own right sat down with Oprah on the Own Network for the one on one interview about her late daughter and also promoting her new book, “Remembering Whitney.”

In the interview, which aired on Monday, the 79-year-old  shared an excerpt from her book:

I knew I didn’t want Robyn around my daughter, and I told [Whitney] that. There wasn’t much I could do though. [Whitney] liked Robyn. She was past the age when I could forbid her from seeing someone. Kids have a mind of their own when they get older. They want to experiment with all kinds of things. And I don’t know if it was more than that.

After reading the excerpt, Winfrey asks Cissy, “Would it have bothered you if your daughter, Whitney, was gay?”

“Absolutely,” Cissy said.

“You would not have liked that?”

“Not at all,” she responds.

“You wouldn’t have condoned it?”

“No.”
