CNNs Anderson Cooper is jumping into the daytime television world today with his first episode of his brand new series, Anderson. Cooper will interview the family of the late-singer, Amy Winehouse.

Mitch Winehouse, Amy’s father, told AC that he believes she died from a seizure. “Everyone thought I was in denial, I wasn’t in denial, she hadn’t taken drugs,” Mitch told Anderson during the interview. “She’d been clean for round about three years….Her problem was alcohol, the last few years of her life. You might argue, ‘What’s the difference?’ The difference is that what happened to Amy wasn’t anything to do with drugs. It might be that drugs took its toll in the early years, but there were no drugs in her system…She was prescribed Liprium, which is a normal drug, which is given to people who are detoxing and it kind of decreases the chances of having seizures. She was continuing to take one of those pill everyday.”

The family went onto tell Anderson that they plan to start a foundation in Amy’s name.
