Whitney Houston

Okay, this has absolutely nothing to do with the DR. But, I just saw this and it is sad how Whitney has just let herself go. Whitney's sister-in-law took some pictures of her bedroom and the squalor she lives in. Anybody in London? Please buy today's (March 29) Sun.

Update: Here is another article on the matter. A very sad affair.

I really don't understand how the sister-in-law thought giving a public insight to Whitney's destructible lifestyle would help Whitney. It may, which I doubt, give notice to another addict, but Whitney has not only ignored but also spurned public opinion of her addiction and marriage. The world already knew of her disastrous lifestyle. Could it be the sister-in-law was paid well for the photos and interview???

As a former addict, I could never see myself as the world saw me.The pictures could do alot, because it is our secrets that keep us sick.I will not try to ponder anything about the situation concerning Whitney, except to pray for a true divine intervention for her. I believe in my heart that she will"comebäck". When Whitney had here first album and was at the naacp image awards and won best female vocalist, as she rose to accept her award, the audiance booed. I think she can still hear those boos. I just heard one here.

Sorry if you misunderstood the intent of my 1st post. I was questioning the sister-in-law's intentions. How does mentioning Whitney's private sexual pleasures help Whitney? What if it is something she would like to keep between her husband and herself?

How does mentioning to the world that her young daughter is scared of her help? When a child is mentally or physically abused even the news agencies will not print any personal information on the child, but Whitney's children have been portrayed for many years.

She states at the end of the interview that she hoped revealing these private moments of Whitney's life without her permission would help her. Was it necessary after all the publicity, personal life show, pictures, and interview with Diane Sawyer?

I am not looking for an argument, but any answers that may logically justify the sister-in-laws actions.

I am not questioning Whitney's worth, but the true intent of the sister-in-law.

all one has to do is watch cable,"Bravo channel" Being Bobby Brown. I get embarrassed for them and I'm not family.
You can see the family,friends, in-laws, cousins... everyone,Bobby,Whitney, Bobbi Christina,family (except Cissy Houston).....! Pathetic show but I guess it has entertainment value for those who enjoy dysfunctional family gatherings.

Not to justify the sister in laws action, but an addict has to be hit upside the head with reality. so to ansewer your question ...yes. Anything and everything neccesary. The most sobering thing for her will be when the bank well runs try. for the world to get a real glimpse into her sordid life will be jarring. again an addict or alcoholic does not have the mind set, of a sober person this is a disease. She will problably look upon the in=laws action as betrayal. But now the inner circle is starting to crumble.Look for more insiders hangers on and so called "friends"to come out with storys. Good put it all out there until she has no where to retreat. I will assume you are not nor have ever faced this issue.again Whitneys secrets will keep her sick ... the laundry has to be washed.

The Bobby Brown reality show revolted me and made me feel so sorry for her. He seemed to take pride in his crudeness and ignorant behavior. I have enjoyed her talents for so long and it is sad, sad, sad.

As a recovering addict I have to agree with the statement of simbul. How does publishing this information help Whitney Houston?
It is sensational and I too question the sister-in-laws motives. Why isn't the family doing an intervention? Why isn't Cissy and David and Whitney's other brother and her aunts, the Warwicks, doing anything to try and get her help. There are legal ways to do this. Maria Cole intervened to save her daughter Natalie Cole by going to court and having her declared incompetent to manage her affairs. Thus Mrs. Cole was able to stop the flow of money to the drug dealers AND this forced Natalie into a rehab.

THEY HAVE , THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH FAMILY CAN DO. SHE HAS TO WANT TO HELP HERSELF...SHE HAS TO WANT TO CHANGE NOT THE PEOPLE AROUNDHER. MRS.COLE HAD HER OWN MONEY AND WHITNEY IS STILL IN SOME WAYS, THE MEAL TICKET. SO THE REAL QUESTION TO PONDER IS WHY PICTURES AND SUCH OF WHITNEY SHIT AND NOT BOBBY'S. MAYBE IT'S A SET UP FOR HIM TO LAY CERTAIN CLAIMS FOR A DIVORCE SETTLEMENT. AAFTER ALL IT WAS HIS SISTER WHO TOOK THE PICTURES

Nena said...

Bobby and Whitney...feed off of each other's dsyfunction!
I'm sure Bobby wasNOT bringing in much "bacon" since he hasn't didn't anything REAL/WORTHWHILE in EEeeeeooonnnsss.
The worse was when they were in Israel~It was so sad.
But they are taking care of Bobby's family since it's Bobby's family is always in the home, on the trips, at the functions and ON the Being Bobby Brown show, so Whitney does the SUPPORTING! Put the glass dick down girl, admit your an addict and go for treatment before you loooooose that VOICE

Huge fan.... said...

The voice has been long gone. Did anyone here see and hear her performance at the Winter olympics, it was beyond sad. I pray that she gets the help she deserves. I can not begin to speculate about what is going on in her head or life. I am just an outsider looking in and it's not a pretty site.

Another Brown feeding on Whitney. This is a classic example of an abusive partner (and related in-laws). I feel sorry for Whitney. Bobby introduced her to this lifestyle and his whole family is riding all her money away.

OPINION ONLY: When Whitney's mother insisted and was the disruptive force in Robin (Whitney's girlfriend) and Whitney's relationship, that was the beginning of the end. It has been down hill for her ever since. She has been deeply unhappy and depressed. She was a happy, chart making, singing her ass off lesbian.

REMEMER THAT NEWS PAPER HAS ISSUES WITH FAKE STORIES UNTIL I SEE IT I WILL BELEIVE IT!

that looks like a crackhead ghetto bathroom nothing like Whitney's or any upscale estate.

Awh hell.....never mind, after the comment above why bother. Did you ever watch "Being Bobby Brown", it was ghetto. Enough said, bye.

mario, have you seen Being Bobby Brown? they served Thanksgiving dinner out of aluminum pans and paper plates.Since when did having money mean being upscale or having class.Wipe the sleep out of your eyes baby!

Mario Sessions said...

Remember its a TV show they are feeding the public what they want to see. I know someone that is very close to Whitney and Bobby its only a front thats all im saying.

It's not important to go backward and forward on this topic. Verify your sourse,it is no front. Have your friends send a counter to the story in defense of Ms Houston. Yes she was a hudge talent, yes she was a diva, yes she was a beauty, and yes she and Bobby like anybody else have their ups and downs. She is currently in serious trouble, slow death for sure. I think most agree on that. Her behavior in public and private is just ghetto fabu. It's all good and sad too.

I'm sorry, I think Whitney Houston has some very serious issues to deal with. I pray for her.

That is a very sorry front!!

Is that very close someone on drugs too?

Anonymous said...

I wish someone could tell me, what is ghetto fabulous? when I came up the ghetto was something you sought to escape, not glorify! drugs, Black on black crime, ignorance, lack of ambition, and a language that is incomprehensible.What is SO fabulous about the ghetto! Maybe a fair place to visit but I don't want to live there.

Nena said...

It's sad if Bobby and Whitney are putting up a front for a TV show just to entertain and make money....isnt that what we used to call:"selling your self short/out"!

Harlem once was called the ghetto even though it had crime, drugs there was something that compelled me to stay. Now Harlem is "upscale" and if you can't afford to pay $1200-1600/month then harlem is not for you...i'm still a harlemite and I miss the real culture it had...Spanish Harlem and Central Harlem! The empowerment of the "ghetto" just displaced it's natives and it's real culture!

Ghetto Fabulous:

when a person from the ghetto gets money, he or she tends to buy expensive things that any other rich person would not. such things and such people are ghetto fabulous. A person may be from the ghetto, and grow up and out of the ghetto and not have the sterotypical ghetto mentality. The problem is when you grow up, have means and the mentality remains the same. Whitney is not street, but she choose to be. The news reported tonight, that she is in serious financial distress, which is very tragic.

Anonymous said...

Did anyone here gloryfy the ghetto? I don't think anyone admires the ghetto, barreo, slum, ect. It is a condition, a reality of economics, education, mentality, or just happen chance of being. It is a common term used "Ghetto Fabulous", when some one thinks they are fabulous, and all that and a bag of chips, but they really are only gaudy and tasteless. Black, white, so forth and so on...

Ghetto, or not. I sincerly wish, and pray Whitney the strength and will to help herself, and make a full recovery. What a hollywood come back story that would make. God bless you Whitney.

I've read so many people say that Bobby introduced her to this lifestyle and for years I've read and heard people say that he was bringing her down, etc. etc.

I don't know if anyone here remembers the really early days of Whitney, when she did interviews on Video Soul with Donny Simpson. If you do, then you would remember that she came off kind of ghetto even back then, loonng before she hooked up with Bobby. You could tell she was not the sweet, innocent butterfly that her image onstage portrayed; an image that was probably created by the record label(they tend to do that).

Anyway, all I'm saying is that we're all on the outside looking in, and who knows the real Whitney and real Bobby. Bobby is defintely no choir boy, but neither is (or was) Whitney.

Personally, I have always liked them both. It's a sad situation. I really hope she can clean up before it's too late.
