Pat, who is married to Gary, was also Whitney's manager. But the two women were more than business associates, more than in-laws - they shared the bond of friendship. When she came in 2011, Whitney supported the work Pat was doing with youth in Cleveland County. Teen Summit educates young people, helping them develop skills to face life's challenges.
Last week, Pat released a statement on the Whitney Houston website criticizing the recent Lifetime Movie about her sister-in-law. In her statement, she talks about how upset her daughter was because the movie was made by a woman who claimed to be Whitney's friend.
