As the one-year anniversary approaches of her daughter Whitney Houston's death on Feb. 11, 2012, Cissy Houston reveals for the first time how difficult it's been for her granddaughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.
"She's not handling it good," says the matriarch. "None of us are."
"Of course I worry about her," adds Houston. "Bobbi Kristina is 19, and if you know anything about a 19-year-old, they think they know it all. It doesn't mean that she is going to follow her [mother's] same path. She could but anybody could. I don't want to jinx her. I'm trying to make sure she doesn't."

Bobby Brown checked into a confidential rehabilitation center last week as part of an agreement after his arrest for driving-related infractions, his attorney has announced.
"Mr. Brown takes his agreement very seriously and admitted himself three weeks after concluding his honeymoon in Mexico during a break from the New Edition tour," attorney Christopher Brown said in a statement. "Bobby is doing well and receiving services that comply with his agreement with the State of California."
The singer, 43, was arrested in March for driving under the influence when he was pulled over for talking on his cell phone. He then failed a field sobriety test.

Bobbi Kristina Brown is grieving the loss of her mother Whitney Houston – but the young aspiring actress didn't walk out on Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse and, in fact, did "great" work, according to the director.
On Wednesday a report surfaced that Bobbi Kristina quit the TBS comedy and walked out of the show because she is dealing with the death of her mom.
But Perry posted an adamant defense of Houston's daughter on his website saying, "Yes she was grieving, but grief aside, she managed to finish her obligation and did a great job at the same time."

It was a night of tributes at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday.
The evening's most emotional moment came during a tribute to the late Whitney Houston. While Jordin Sparks performed the singer's iconic hit "I Will Always Love You," Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, broke down in tears before taking the stage to accept the Millennium Award on her mom's behalf.
"I really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all," said Brown, who stood alongside Whitney's manager and sister-in-law Patricia Houston. "Not just from when it was good but when it was bad, too. Thank you for showing that much love, because she deserved it ... I'm just blessed to have been in such an incredible woman's life. There will never be another one, ever."

Whitney Houston is no longer around, but the lives of her family members are about to go on display on their new reality show, The Houston Family Chronicles.
Lifetime has picked up a series to air this year and feature Whitney's sister-in-law Pat, along with her brother Gary, mom Cissy and Pat's daughter Rayah as they take Whitney's daughter Bobbi Kristina under their wing, helping her get through day-to-day life and coping without her mother and best friend.
But is Whitney's family compelling enough on their own without the late superstar in their lives? Tell us if you'll tune into the hour-long series:

Bobby Brown will not accept the theory that he is responsible for his ex-wife Whitney Houston's death. Nor does he believe he is the one who got the music legend hooked on drugs.
"Not true," the R&B singer, 43, tells Matt Lauer in a Today show interview Tuesday, Brown's first since the Feb. 11 death of Houston. "I didn't get high [on narcotics] before I met Whitney. I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn't the one that got Whitney on drugs at all."
Brown insists drugs were already part of Houston's life "way before" their relationship. "It's just unexplainable how one could, you know, [claim that I] got her addicted to drugs. I'm not the reason she's gone."

Bobbi Kristina Brown is already following in her famous parents' footsteps.
The daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown has been cast in a recurring role in Tyler Perry's show For Better or Worse, a source confirms to PEOPLE.
No details of the role are available, but the show shoots in Atlanta, where all of Perry's shows are produced and where Bobbi Kristina lives.
Bobbi Kristina, 19, has said she wants to be an entertainer. "I have to carry on the legacy," she told Oprah Winfrey earlier this month. "We're going to do the singing thing. Some acting, some dancing."

Bobbi Kristina Brown likes to keep a little something to remember her mom Whitney Houston by.
The late pop star's only child has been wearing a big ring, but despite earlier speculation, Brown isn't actually planning to walk down the aisle with her "adopted brother/boyfriend" Nick Gordon, 22.
Her rep tells PEOPLE the pair are not engaged.
And a source adds, "She is just wearing her mom's ring."

The eyebrow-raising relationship between Whitney Houston's daughter and the man raised by the singer as a son may have gone one big, baffling step further.
Just a little over a month after Houston died, Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, was spotted with a ring on her engagement finger following days of very public PDA with Nick Gordon.
One source tells PEOPLE, "Yes, they are engaged, but the family is trying to coax her away from it. "
Another source says, "Nick asked Krissi about a week ago to marry him" and that she's wearing a ring that once belonged to her mom. But the source doesn't know if Brown said yes.

The Twitter posts and PDA-filled paparazzi photos have certainly raised eyebrows.
Ever since Whitney Houston's death, daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown and a man described in media reports as Bobbi's "adopted brother," Nick Gordon, have had something going on.
The day after Brown's interview with Oprah Winfrey aired March 11, Brown, 19, cozied up with Gordon, 22, at a Starbucks in Atlanta.
They have also been spotted out and about in the city hugging, kissing and holding hands – most recently while grabbing pizza in Atlanta on March 13. And PEOPLE has learned that they are living together in Houston's house.
