Apparently Miss Bobbi Kristina is not too pleased about Cissy Houston’s new book about her mom, the late Whitney Houston called “Remembering Whitney.”

Although Bobbi Kristina doesn’t come right out and say why, she’s boycotting the book and wants her fans to do likewise.

She continues: “I haven’t read and won’t … I find it to be disrespectful to my mother and me being her daughter won’t tolerate it.”

Meanwhile, Cissy pretty much knew her granddaughter had a problem with the book being released, but went ahead with it anyway. When she was on with Oprah earlier in the week, she was asked whether Bobbi Kristina wanted the book to be released.

“That’s what I heard. I guess somebody telling her something. I don’t know.”

Her first story was a hybrid of the first and last chapters of The Twelve Tribes of Hattie.

Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media (TNS®) are “mature” stem cells, which means they are not in the embryonic stem cells. Doctors can retrieve these cells from new born baby foreskin cells and human fat cells. While most people may think that this is a little bizarre and a new innovation in skin
