Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Bobbi Kristina Accepts Billboard Music Awards 2012 Millennium Award For Her Mother Whitney Houston

Last night Bobbi Kristina attended the Billboard Music Awards 2012 to accept the Millennium Award on behalf of her mother Whitney Houston. It was a rare public appearance for Bobbi Kris as she attended the BBMA’s in Vegas, but it was all for good reason. (Even her rumored boyfriend Nick Gordon was there to show his support and to plant a kiss on Bobbi Kris’ cheek as he brought her up to the stage.)

In an emotional tribute to Whitney, Whoopi Goldberg began the tribute saying, “What all performers want and need and should get is love and many of us here loved Whitney, and even if you’re one of those who didn’t show the love to Whitney, now is your chance, because tonight, that’s what we’re doing: We’re going to be giving Whitney the greatest love of all.”

After John Legend and Houston’s co-star in Sparkle Jordin Sparks performed some of Whit’s hits, Whit’s sister-in-law Pat Houston and Bobbi Kris took to the stage to accept the award for Whitney.

According to Radaronline.com, Pat said, “This is truly an honor. We thank you, Billboard; we thank you, Whoopi, Jordin; we love you, John. But tonight, the one person that should be accepting this award is the one person that Whitney loved most.”

Bobbi Kris then took the mic to say that she “just really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all. Not just when it was good, but when it was bad too. Thank you so much for showing that much love, ’cause she deserved it. There will never be another one, ever. I thank you so much.”

Check out the Whitney Houston tribute for last night’s Billboard Music Awards below.

Bobby Brown Doesn’t Touch “Narcotics”

You know, it really is a wonderful thing when you can re-define the laws of society for your own crackerized version of utopia.

Look at The King of R&B (that’s rocks & booze). Now that Whitney Houston is no longer on this earth, Bobby Brown wants everyone to know that he didn’t get Whitney hooked on drugs.

At least not all of them.

But therein lies the crux of this crackery. Because according to Bobby Brown, grass is not the same as “narcotics”.

In an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, Bobby Brown had this to say:

“That was part of her life before we got together. I didn’t get high on narcotics before I met Whitney … I smoked weed and drank beer … but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs … I’m not the reason she’s gone.”

OK, just try to keep it together while I finish the story. We have identified the crackhead in this piece. Let’s read between the lines, snort them, and then soldier on. Brown delved even further into the new definition of crackery.

“I haven’t touched narcotics in seven years. I know she was struggling with it still.”

Ah, look. Seven is the new one. So the next time someone asks me how long ago I stopped smoking grass, I can say, “Seven years ago last night!”

So the next time you get caught smoking a joint in your car and the police stop you, try telling them that weed isn’t a narcotic according to the King of R&B, Bobby Brown.

See how far that gets ya!

Bobby Brown math is the new new math! If you start scratching your head and twitching, it’s because you smoked/snorthed/inhaled the new math!

Whitney Houston’s Mother Cissy Houston Writing Tell-All Book About Whitney!

Whitney Houston’s mother Cissy Houston is planning to write a tell-all book about her daughter Whitney. The book, according to the New York Times, is aiming to set the record straight about Whit’s trouble life and her death.

Apparently Mama is looking to use this book as a way to “dispel all of those lies”. You KNOW this is going to be a big hit already.

Whitney Houston Toxicology Report Hints At Drug Overdose

Whitney Houston’s Toxicology results are in.

So yeah. So much for that accidental drowning cause of death revelation. Even though peeps were telling everyone to settle the eff down because Whitney Houston was clean of drugs and getting her butt back on track with life and there was no way in got damn hell that Whit could have fathomed of indulging in drugs resulting in an overdose to her death, I guess those peeps were a tad naive or just full of hope.

According to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s report, the hotel room where Whitney Houston died was filled with drugs and paraphernalia.

Not only that but there were “remnants of a white powdery substance” found in her room at the Beverly Hilton, including inside a drawer and below the base of a freestanding mirror. The report also says that “a small spoon with a white crystal-like substance in and a rolled up piece of white paper” were also found in the bathroom where Whitney was found dead.

But that is not all, folks. Yep, there is more.

In addition, “multiple bottles of prescription medication” were spread across a table along with a beer can and a half-eaten sandwich.

The coroner also says that Whitney “possibly overdosed on a narcotic substance, prescription medications, over the counter medications and alcohol.”

In other words, she probably did die of an overdose. Guess she should have visited Drugtreatment.com.

Sad, but soooo not surprising.

Loretta Devine Wants Waiting to Exhale sequel Even Though Whitney Houston Is Dead!

Loretta Devine is waiting for a Waiting To Exhale sequel and well, this chick is probably going to be waiting a long time. Last time I heard, one of the stars of the show was dead and would it be right to do the show without Whitney Houston?

Devine is keeping her fingers crossed that a sequel will be created to at least honor the late Houston. She says, “There was word that it might be done as a tribute to her. That would be wonderful.”

If the film is created, Houston won’t be the only castmate missing from the film – Gregory Hines also passed away (back in 2003).

Would you watch a Waiting To Exhale sequel?

REPORT: Bobbi Kristina Starring In Tyler Perry Sitcom

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bobbi Kristina may still be grieving after the untimely death of her mother, legendary songstress Whitney Houston. And now she has the crazy stunts of her father Bobby Brown, who was just arrested for a DUI, to deal with. However, she is still moving forward with her life, and could possibly be hitting TV sets across the country soon!

Reports are that famed director and actor, Tyler Perry, has given Bobbi Kris a a role on his sitcomFor Better or For Worse, which has been picked up for a 2nd season on TBS.

Last month, the network ordered 35 more episodes of the series and it’s scheduled to air starting in July 2012. The series stars Tasha Smith (Angela) and Michael Jai White (Marcus) and is based on Tyler’s 2007 film Why Did I Get Married? and the 2010 sequel Why Did I Get Married Too? Tasha’s character, Angela, owns her own beauty salon, and Tyler has supposedly casted Bobbi Kristina in a recurring role as one of the stylists at the shop.

The upcoming actress has apparently been spotted coming and going from Tyler Perry’s Atlanta Studios for a few weeks now, with her brother/boy toy Nick Gordon right by her side. Whitney’s manager/sister-in-law/best friend and aunt to Bobbi Kris, Pat Houston, has also been seen at the studio.

This should be big! I definitely want to see if Bobbi Kristina got the acting genes from her mom. Who knows? This may open the door for some other big opportunities. It’s good of Tyler to give her a chance, possibly to keep her out of trouble and on the right path to her dreams of being an actress and singer. Don’t blow it girl!

Ray J: No Way Involved in Whitney’s Demise

Whitney Houston may have died with some of the good white stuff in her system (along with eleventeen other drugs, but hey, who’s counting?) but one person that is not taking the blame for Whitney’s untimely death is Ray J, who has been linked with the recently deceased singer on and off since her divorce from singer Bobby Brown a few years ago. Now that the toxicology results have been released, people are screaming, “show me the receipts”, and the paper trail is of course running back to Ray J, who has been accused by Bobby Brown’s sister, Leolah Brown, of providing cocaine for the songstress. These are claims that Ray J flatly denies. A representative for Ray J told TMZ that the singer had no knowledge that Whitney was using again.

Now, I’m not a detective, but something in the milk (here we go with these white substances again) ain’t clean! Look at that photo! How many times did we see Ray J out with Whitney and her weave/wig was all astray? No self-respecting diva would ever be caught out looking like this unless they were on the good stuff! but I’ve been to enough parties and seen ‘Blow’ enough times to know that no one does coke alone. It’s a social party drug. So someone was in that room with Whitney when she died. Someone supplied her with that drug. And someone needs to stop lying and show me the receipts!

Whitney Houston Cause of Death Revealed: Cocaine Found In Her Body!

Apparently Whitney Houston had cocaine in her system at the time of her death. Anyone surprised? Just sayin’.

The cause of her death was also released today and we do now know that Whit did die of accidental drowning. And yes, cocaine was a contributing factor to her death.

Although Whit was found dead in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton hotel last month and some pills were found on the scene, there was NO evidence of cocaine in her hotel room. TMZ is reporting that even though cocaine was not found in the room when law enforcement showed up, a close source to the situation is saying that whomever supplied the coke to Whit was the one who was up in her room making sure there were no remnants.

Despite what Whit’s family thought, law enforcement still believes that foul play was not involved and her death was not a homicide.

In other words, her demons overcame her. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t make the situation less sad.

Ray J and Whitney Houston Sex tape on the market?

Remember when I said that I hoped that there wouldn’t be a Ray J, Whitney Houston sex tape surfacing ‘cuz gawd that would be so sick and wrong? I mean seriously. Nobody wants to see someone who was once alive hitting the skins. Well I am sure there are some freaks out there, but got damn. Well yesterday we heard the rumor that there is a big fat stash of sex tapes featuring Whit and Ray-J in throes of passion and intense freaky deaky boot knockin’.

Well TMZ is reporting that there is no stash of tapes anyways or so says Ray-J’s rep, “The despicable tabloid report released today claiming the existence of a sex tape between Ray J and Whitney Houston is not true … There is no sex tape.”

Well if there is no sexually explicit pics of Whit or any sex tapes in existence, then 10 years down the road when Ray is hurting for bank, we better not see any offers out on the table for NC-17.

Whitney Houston’s “adopted” son Nick Gordon and Bobbi Kristina Spotted Kissing!

Whitney Houston’s (rumored) adopted son Nick Gordon is squashing rumors that he is bumping fugs with his “sister” Bobbi Kristina. Even though they were spotted sucking face and groping each other in public, Nick is saying that he’s only helping Bobbi Kris get through her mother’s passing or so he told ABCNews.com.

A British newspaper is even going as far to say that Bobbi and Nick are engaged as she was spotted wearing a big fat diamond ring on “that” finger.

So what if they really ARE dating? Does this make their relationship incestuous? Gramma Cissy Houston thinks so and she’s really effing pissed that these two kids are carrying on like they are.

In response to the video that was posted on TMZ on Wednesday, a close friend of Cissy is saying that Gramma is trying her damnedest to get Gordon evicted from Whitney’s home because basically they thinks that Bobbi Kris has problems and Nick is taking advantage of her.

Well if she is emotionally vulnerable there is no doubt that I would be concerned too if Nick was manipulative. But good gawd, Whitney trusted this guy so baby there already was something going on before Whit’s death?

Who effing knows. And does it really matter?

For the Whitney Houston Estate it does because at this point, Bobbi Kris is the one with the big cash.

Bobbi Kristina Inherits All of Whitney Houston’s Fortune and Property

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before her untimely passing on February 11, Whitney Houston made plans to take care of her daughter Bobbi Kristina in case she wasn’t around.Whitney amended her will on April 14, 2000, leaving Bobbi Kristina, now 19, everything she owned. Bobbi Kris will inherit her mother’s money, furniture, clothing, personal effects, jewelry and cars. Inside Edition obtained the 19-page will that laid out Whitney’s plans.

The money will be placed in a trust until Bobbi Kristina turns 21 in 2014. She will receive additional money when she turns 25, and will be given access to the rest of Whitney’s fortune when she turns 30.

Whitney’s mother Cissy is the executor of the will, while Whitney’s brother Michael and sister-in-law Donna are the trustees. While the singer’s ex-husband, Bobby Brown, is mentioned in the will, he won’t be getting anything.  The will stated if Bobbi Kristina had died before Whitney, Bobby, Cissy, and other relatives would share the assets.

Whitney had first drafted a will on February 3, 1993 — exactly one month before she gave birth to Bobbi Kristina.

While family wants to keep her out of the spotlight, Bobbi Kristina will open up for the first time about her mother’s death on an episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter, airing on Oprah Winfrey’s channel OWN  this Friday, March 9 at 9 p.m. EST. “[Bobbi Kristina] idolized Whitney,” a source previously told Us Weekly. “She was always by her side in everything she did.”

I’m really excited to watch Oprah’s interview with Bobbi Kristina. While talking about her mother will be an emotional topic, many want to see her and hear her speak about her memories with Whitney. I’m actually surprised that she is doing an interview, especially so soon after Whitney’s passing, but at least with Oprah, it will be done with taste and integrity.

Brandy Pays Tribute to Whitney With New Album

Brandy is going ahead and giving her next album the title Two Eleven (2/11) to honor her own birthday AND her late idol Whitney Houston. Whitney passed away on Brandy’s birthday. It’s crappy enough that Whit died, but it’s even worse that she’ll forever have to have her own birthday associated with the death of her idol. So sad.

But even though she is coping alright, she is excited and hopeful for her new album. She said, “I really feel like this is my chance to get it right. I don’t want to make any mistakes. We want to make sure we have the first single, the right first single, so we don’t have to do a bunch of remixes and stuff like that.”

In other words, she needs to step up her game. Anyone remember her last album “Human”? Yeah, me neither.

Hey at least she recognizes it wasn’t successful. She added, “I can’t come off of an unsuccessful album and do that again. I can’t do that. That’s why things are taking forever and I’m really trying to get everything right.”

We will be waiting, girl.

Bobby Brown’s Sister Leolah Brown says Bobbi Kristina isn’t safe!

Bobby Brown’s sister Leolah Brown has something to say, probably for money and probably while under the influence. Good gawd, I’m not sure if she just can’t open her eyes because they are glitter-glued together or because she is higher like a gawd damn kite. Something isn’t right there. Somebody should have at least offered some toothpicks to keep her eyes open for pete’s sake.

As I listened to this interview I couldn’t help but wonder who Bobbi Kristina is talking to during this difficult time. Where is she living? Who is helping her get through her emotions? Because it seems to me there are not a whole lot of winners wanting to hang out in her court right now.

“Auntie” Leolah told Access Hollywood, “I am concerned about my niece Bobbi Kristina, yes. Krissy is not safe right now. I want to say to Krissy that it’s very, very, very important that she does not trust anybody at this time – anybody except her father, her grandmother Cissy and myself. And I mean that.”

In other words, Krissy ain’t talking to Auntie Leolah about shiz right now. And Leolah thinks it isn’t a good idea to close out people like her, Grandma Cissy and her daddy Bobby. She adds, “Right now is the time to just really shut the door. There are persons that possibly would want to take advantage of Bobbi Kristina’s fragile state of mind.”

And then came the time during the interview where she was asked whether she thought the Beverly Hills Police Department will carry out a thorough investigation. Leolah threw in her two cents saying, “I believe Whitney’s death was not accidental. It’s very important to know that she did not just pass away like that. No. And if it’s the last thing that I do, I’m going to find out what truly happened to my sister.”

Check out the video interview for yourself.

BEHIND-THE-SCENES: Whitney Houston In “Sparkle” (VIDEO)

We have a sneak peek look at Whitney Houston in Sparkle in some never before seen footage that showcases the diva’s talent and proof that her voice was still intact.

Whitney is shown in the below clip singing on set along with co-star Jordin Sparks. She even belts out a few bars from “His Eye Is On The Sparrow”.

Sparks sat down with Essence magazine and shared what it was like to work with the legendary superstar. Jordin said, “She was amazing and she was so kind to me. I will never forget that. I got really lucky to see her on something she was so passionate about.”

Even though she is gone, this final film is sure to leave us all with some happy memories of Whitney. There is no doubt in my mind that her legacy will live on through her music and the arts in general.

Sparkle is due out in theaters on August 17th.

Check out the behind-the-scenes clip of Whitney doing her thing on set below.
