More upsetting news: TMZ is reporting that Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina, 18, was rushed from the Beverly Hilton Hotel — where her mother passed away yesterday — to the hospital today. No word on why or what her possible condition is. Last night, Bobbi Kristina allegedly got into a shouting match with law enforcement because they wouldn’t let her inside her mother’s room.

According to Us Weekly, the grieving young woman is being treated for “stress,” and was taken from the hotel on a stretcher (though I believe that is standard procedure when an ambulance is called). [Us Weekly]
Our thoughts and prayers are with Houston’s only child, and we hope that her family and friends are focused on giving her the support she needs.
At right, what’s believed to be Whitney Houston’s final performance, filmed Feb. 9, two nights before her death. The singer sang “Yes, Jesus Loves Me” at the Kelly Price & Friends pre-Grammy concert. Houston passed away today in Los Angeles at the age of 48. [via Huffington Post]
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]
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 »
