In an interview airing this Wednesday and Thursday on The Today Show, Bobby Brown--who claims to be seven years sober--says that he saw Whitney two weeks before her death, and she had a glow about her and looked really good.

(You'd think with his experience, he'd know that it was the glow of druggin'.)

But that's not the really surprising bit.

Whitney's Sparkle Trailer Is Bittersweet, Says Author! Check it Out

Categories: Whitney Houston


Ever since the trailer for Sparkle -- with Whitney Houston in her final film performance -- was released, people have been oohing and ahing and intermittently loving it and clucking their tongues a lot.

Well, Mark Bego, who's written a book called End of the Rainbow -- I mean Whitney Houston! The Spectacular Rise and Tragic Fall of the Woman Whose Voice Inspired a Generation -- certainly has an opinion on it.

Observes Bego:

As with so many longtime cocaine users, Whitney Houston had a perforation in her nose as a result of the coke literally burning through her.

It basically created a third (internal) nostril, burrowing through her flesh due to constant intake.

At least we know she wasn't lying when she said she wished she'd done crack because it was cheaper.

Whitney was addicted to the good stuff.

Whitney Houston, Jackie Rinehart

So says publicist Jackie Rinehart in her written memorial of the singer she worked with.

Writes Rinehart:

"What first impressed me about Whitney was her strong will. You could sense that strength immediately.

"She was not weak, a pushover, or easily beguiled. She was a Leo woman and could give a look that let you know it -- like a real sister girl! I loved that about her."

Did Whitney Sound "Black" Enough?

Many years ago, I auditioned for a cable show that was going to feature pop commentators debating current entertainment-biz issues.

The topic for my audition was the emergence of Whitney Houston as a hot new singing star.

My debater was in a real huff, fuming about the way her music was produced and arguing that "she doesn't sound black enough!"

I was taken aback.

This is the biggest must-see tragic viewing since Michael Jackson's memorial (though her family wants quite a different feeling -- something smallish and intimate).

It will be poignant, tearful, and filled with people who loved and felt for Whitney, as well as some who probably asked too much of her as they forced her into their idea of what she should represent and achieve.

The event will happen tomorrow at noon at Newark's New Hope Baptist Church.

Gene Simmons reportedly said so on CNBC, though I'm not sure how renowned an expert he is in forensics.

And while Simmons meant he thinks Whitney literally offed herself in the tub, that other noted death pundit, Bill O'Reilly, feels Whitney simply wanted to extinguish herself in the long run.
