Are Whitney Houston And Ray J Back On?

On-and-off couple Whitney Houston and Ray J are reportedly dating again. After first making headlines as a couple in 2007, the two are rumored to be on their third breakup-and-makeup escapade.

Even though the pop idol/diva/six-time Grammy Award winner already had a big career before her beau could babble the word “Kim,” the two had no problem publically displaying their interest in one another at an L.A. club recently. This may very well be the highlight of Ray J’s career. With a few mediocre albums, a sex tape with America’s most disliked reality star, and a failed reality show of his own under his belt, dating one of America’s most sensational stars may be his greatest achievement.

So I say power to the two of you! Get back together and make it work this time. Just stop picking fights with Bobby Brown, Ray. Although, I suppose it’s your prerogative. [Lalate News]

  • Whitney Houston reportedly refused to buckle her own seatbelt on a Delta flight from Atlanta yesterday afternoon and “got diva,” whatever that means. Whit was warned that she would be booted from the plane if she didn’t buckle up and finally relented, allowing one peasant crewmember to fasten her seatbelt for her. TMZ’s source — who is “close to the singer” — admitted that Whitney “overreacted a little bit.” Ya think? [TMZ]
  • Could Kate and William give birth to a future queen? The UK’s prime minister is trying to change the British monarchy’s acension laws so that a firstborn girl — not just a firstborn boy — can inherit the throne. How very feminist! [People]
  • Amy Winehouse’s dad is writing a biography about his daughter — a “definitive account of Amy’s life” — with all proceeds going towards the Amy Winehouse Foundation to help children affected by substance abuse. Hopefully the book will help parents struggling with a child addicted to drugs as well. [Guardian UK Keep reading »

Bobbi Kristina Inherits The Family Pipes

The progeny of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina, is no longer the chubby little brat we remember from “Being Bobby Brown.” This past week, a 17-year-old Bobbi posted this video of her covering Adele‘s “Someone Like You” on her Twitter page. If my ears are hearing her correctly, she appears to be carrying on her parents’ (well, at least her mother’s) musical legacy. Let’s hope she didn’t also inherit mommy’s penchant for crack. Hmm. I seem to recall some photos of her snorting white lines that she claimed weren’t what they looked like. Sigh. Bobbi, crack is whack. It would be sad to waste another perfectly good set of pipes. But hey, it’s her prerogative. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

The Formula For An Amazing News Item: Whitney Houston, A Monkey And Toe Sucking

Every so often a news item comes along that defies all reason and exceeds all expectations of news greatness. Today, I found one such story. The headline reads: Whitney Houston Once Got Intimate With Michael Jackson’s Pet Monkey Bubbles.” What does that mean exactly? It means that David Gest (that weird looking fellow who was married to Liza Minnelli) made some interesting claims during his interview for the upcoming Michael Jackson documentary. “Whitney was having dinner with Michael at his Neverland home when she accidentally dropped her knife under the table. While Michael was retrieving it for her, Whitney felt her toes being sucked. She moaned, ‘Michael, is that you? Don’t stop. That’s so sensual.’ Yet Michael’s head popped up and her toes were still being sucked. It turned out it was Bubbles,” he recalled. And there you have it. Questions, comments, concerns? Above, the breakdown of what makes this news item truly amazing. [ONTD] Keep reading »

Quickies: More Alleged Blake Lively Nude Pics Emerge & Whitney Houston Might Have Emphysema

Whitney Houston Is In Rehab … To Cleanse?

According to TMZ, singer Whitney Houston has entered an out-patient rehab program, but not because she’s got a problem with drugs or alcohol. No, a source told the gossip site that Whitney is “cleansing herself to get ready for a new movie.” In this particular program, apparently, Whitney can go about her usual business but she wears a “monitor.” Monitoring what, exactly? Here’s my hunch — this is all legalese. Whitney isn’t sayin’ she has a problem with drugs or booze, but she’s drying out — er, cleansing — from one or both and the monitor is to make sure she sticks to it. In other words, she’s (probably) on a booze and drug sabbatical! Hey, I wouldn’t have minded a monitor when I was doing mine… [TMZ]

UPDATE: Whitney’s rep issued a statement to People which says: “Whitney Houston is currently in an out-patient rehab program for drug and alcohol treatment. Whitney voluntarily entered the program to support her long-standing recovery process.” I still don’t really get what that means, but good luck to you Whitney! [People] Keep reading »

Bobbi Kristina Says The Photos Of Her Doing Coke Aren’t What They Look Like

“This was a result of a horrible relationship that went sour. I was in love—he was in love with money … A former very dear person to me did this. Set me up to make it look exactly what it looks like. God will smite them yes. But it’s really not what it looks like. People will do anything for money which is extremely sad, and I’m very hurt by this … All I can do now, is keep my head up high, keep looking towards the lord.

—Bobbi Kristina Brown, the 18-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, responds to the images of her allegedly snorting cocaine that ran in the National Enquirer this week. If it’s not what it looks like—what exactly is it? [Vibe Magazine] Keep reading »

Who Should Star In The Remake Of “The Bodyguard”?

I remember going to see “The Bodyguard” in the theater in 1992. I was 12 at the time, and it was the first rated R movie that my parents deemed acceptable for me to see. I remember feeling terror the first time the psycho stalker’s handiwork was shown on screen. I remember my heart beating faster the first time Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner kissed. I remember feeling elated at the idea that these two people from such different backgrounds could fall for each other. And when Whitney sang, “I Will Always Love You”—let’s just say that the song got the repeat listening treatment.

Apparently, Warner Brothers wants to make this magic happen again. Yes, you guessed right. They are planning a remake of “The Bodyguard.” The story will be basically the same—a mega pop star with a stalker reluctantly decides to heed the advice of her bodyguard. Only, instead of a former Secret Service guy, this bodyguard will be an Iraq war veteran. And the stalker will be even more diabolical given the access to Twitter, Facebook, and blogs. But who will they cast in the lead roles? After the jump, some pairings we’d be super excited to see. Keep reading »

10 Ways Whitney Houston Can Turn Her Tragic Tour Around

We were totally rooting for Whitney Houston after she dumped Bobby, kicked the crack habit, sat down on Oprah’s couch, and got her comeback tour on the road. But at some point along the way, the tour turned into a total bust. She has been plagued by respiratory problems that she claims were caused by a bad AC unit. And at her Sunday concert at London’s O2 arena, her voice simply gave out in the middle of “I Will Always Love You.” “Oh, it’s going to come,” Houston pleaded with disappointed fans in the middle of the song. “I wanna do it—but [my voice] just doesn’t want to. I have long talks with her. Well, tonight she’s getting a little temperamental.” (Side note: it’s not OK to talk about your voice in the third person.) Critics are calling her a shadow of her former self and superstar in dramatic decline. Eek! [People]

Whitney needs our help and quick. After the jump, some suggestions for Whitney to turn this tour around quickly. Keep reading »

Quotable: Whitney Houston Tries To Appease Booing Birmingham Audience

“I heard you get mad. You’re a little pissed off I understand. However, I thought you would enjoy the montage. I humble myself and thank you for being so good over the years. Well, I’m here now and have even changed my clothes.”

Whitney Houston tries to get the Birmingham, UK, crowd back in her corner after disappearing for three songs, leaving the backup singers to do her work, and playing a video montage with recorded music. There’s some debate whether Whitney’s performance was great or horrible. Check out a video after the jump and judge for yourself. Things get interesting around the 2:20 mark.
