A tearful Pat then told Winfrey that as she entered Whitney's room she saw her brother Ray Watson, the singer's security guard, trying to revive Whitney "to the point of exhaustion. I told him let it go, I'm sorry." She added that when she finally saw Whitney "she had a peacefulness on her face." Pat described her sense of shock and inability to leave Whitney's side even after the paramedics asked her to.

Pat admitted that the "handwriting was on the wall" with Whitney. She said she knew the singer was in trouble at the "end of the '90s" but believes that Bobby Brown, Houston's ex-husband, wasn't necessairly the cause. "I can't say that he introduced drugs to her," she said. "I don't think that's true." She also didn't think that the star's problems in her final days involved substance abuse. Instead, she attributed Whitney's downfall to a lifestyle change where she saw Whitney "chasing a dream ... looking for comfort, love ... and it was younger."
