    Members of Whitney Houston's Family Blame Death on "Lifestyle," Not Drugs

    We told you there'd be more.

    And with the momentum building now that Oprah's intimate interview with Whitney Houston's family, including Bobbi Kristina, will air Sunday night, we can't help but notice a few of Whit's key family members have begun to hint at what they believe really brought on the diva's untimely death.

    And after watching the sneak peek clip, it appears Patricia Houston, Whitney's sister-in-law, strongly disapproved of something else besides Whitney's alleged drug use:

    "It wasn't about substance abuse or anything like that....I was afraid for other things, lifestyle, more so," Patricia explained in her sit-down with Oprah.

    Hmm…wonder what that par-tick lifestyle was? Could be a number of things in Whit's drama-fueled time: From her marriage to Bobby Brown to that awful reality show to her tabloid obsession, we're sure Houston's fam found plenty ways to disapprove.

    Yet, it still seems there's a deeper issue to be discovered:

    "I saw her chasing a dream, looking for love in all the wrong places," Patricia clarified.

    As to exactly where or why Whitney embarked on this dangerous search for love, Patricia wouldn't elaborate, but she did reveal "things were really changing" for the star.

    But ultimately, things didn't change enough—a point that Patricia and Cissy Houston both seem to believe:

    "Yes, you did everything you could, but the choice was always hers," Patricia was overheard saying directly to Cissy at the funeral.

    Hmm, what choice could that be?

    It's still too soon to tell, but we expect more on Whitney's past to surface in the near future.

    We just hope it's revealed in a respectful manner, considering the late diva can no longer come to her own defense.
