We had no idea that Real Housewife of Atlanta NeNe Leakes knew Cissy Houston, mother of the late music legend, Whitney Houston, but apparently the two are friends. NeNe recently received a gift from Cissy, which she shared with us on Twitter.

"Just got a delivery from Cissy Houston! I'm honored that she wanted me to have this!," NeNe posted.

The present was a copy of Mrs. Houston's memoir, Remembering Whitney, which was just released at the end of January. The tell-all account includes never-seen-before photographs of the Grammy winner, as well as her mother's take on Whitney's turbulent marriage to Bobby Brown. The book has already caused a stir, with Cissy’s granddaughter, Bobbi Kristina, slamming it on Twitter.

Do you plan on reading the memoir?
