Writer Gerrick Kennedy’s new book, “Didn’t We Almost Have It All: In Defense of Whitney Houston” came out on Tuesday, and in it he reveals that the Diva who dominated the MTV era was a lesbian.
In the summer of 1980, when she was 17, she introduced herself to a stunning, slender 19-year-old, Robyn Crawford, when they were both working as youth counselors at the East Orange Community Center in NJ.
In the book, Kennedy writes how they came together that summer saying, “Their lips met, bound by all that had been unspoken between the two. That first kiss was long, warm like honey.”
In her 2019 memoir, Robyn wrote about her time with Whitney saying, “It was free and honest – loving and tender. We both wanted to touch and explore each other, and we did until we fell asleep in each other’s arms.”
