Cissy Houston, the mother of the late Whitney Houston, will be writing a tell-all all book about her daughter, according to reports. Allegedly, Cissy has signed a deal with Harper-Collins to write the tell-all, which would be slated for next year. Of course, this rumor is said to have sparked tension in the Houston family, as they see Cissy's new book deal as her way of cashing in on her daughter's death.

According to sources close to the family, "she will try to come out looking like the world's greatest mom, when in actuality, she wasn't." GIven that Bobbi Kristina was the only family member to whom Houston left her earnings, it is no surprise that others close to the singer will try their luck at making bank too. However, if these reports turn out to be accurate and a tell-all book is indeed in the works as opposed to an honest memoir, then Cissy Houston will definitely be entering shady territory.
