The focus of Houston's life always centered around music, and Crawford wrote extensively the first time she heard Houston sing in her church choir. The book is named after a Temptations song the two friends used to listen to at the first apartment they shared.

I had heard the name Robyn Crawford associated with Whitney Houston, mainly for the close and often controversial friendship the two women shared. Houston would continue to be jealous as well, but not when Crawford dated men, only when she became close to women. It’s partially clear that they drifted apart because honestly, in the later years, she has few encouraging things to say about Whitney—this seems particularly critical given their *joint* drug use for so many years! Unfortunately we will never hear Whitney’s, but I assure you, there would be nothing for her to “defend.

But when Houston started dating Jermaine Jackson in the mid-1980s, then Eddie Murphy, and rap star Bobby Brown, whom she married, Crawford admits it was tremendously difficult. It’s telling that the most touching part of Crawford’s story has nothing to do with Houston; instead, it’s the trajectory of her relationship with Lisa, her wife, an editor whose calm, healthy demeanour throws into definition the sheer dysfunction of the world Crawford was leaving. And the fact that these ratings are not accompanied by actual reviews leads me to believe that the ppl who rated did not actually read the book, but chose to rate anyway b/c of their personal feelings about Robyn writing this book.

If people were allowed to just be themselves then maybe there would be fewer tragic endings to lives like those of Whitney Houston and her daughter. After decades of silence, Robyn Crawford, close friend, collaborator, and confidante of Whitney Houston, shares her story. You can tell she really loved her friend and had her best interest at heart even in writing the book. I have always been a huge whitney houston fan I connected to her voice many years ago and followed her career to the very end. This is a searing indictment of the Houston family and the way they exploited and manipulated Whitney, enabled her addiction, drove a wedge between her and the love of her life, and only served themselves.Every time Houston did an interview, she was asked who she was dating; and in 1987, a serious profile in Time magazine made reference to the rumours, much to Houston’s horror.
