Will Whitney Lose Her Mansion?

11/16/2006 10:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Whitney HoustonIf she was looking to cleanse herself of all traces of Bobby Brown, this might be one way to do it. Re-emerging songstress Whitney Houston might be forced to give up her New Jersey mansion in a sheriff's sale because she owes more than $1 million on the mortgage and she hasn't paid the taxes on the property.

According to local newspaper reports in New Jersey, the sale would take place in January, with Mendham Township owed about $83,000 in property taxes on the lavish 10-acre estate, which comprises two lots. Houston's rep denied that the property was in foreclosure, and Houston has, sources say, spent very little time at the Mendham house, and uses it largely to house relatives and friends. Houston spends the most of her time in Los Angeles.

Jessica BielJessica Biel Latest Jeter Squeeze?


Mariah Carey, Vanessa Minnillo, and now ... Jessica Biel? Apparently, Derek Jeter has snagged yet another high-profile beauty: the Yankee captain and "The Illusionist" star Biel were spotted at Hollywood celeb-boite Hyde Tuesday night. They were "laughing and giggling together," according to Page Six, and Jeter massaged Biel's shoulders, say Rush & Molloy. The couple left the club together, though Jeter has also been spotted in New York the past week without Jessica.

Larry KingLarry King: The InterWHAT?


Hey Larry, welcome to 1997! On his show last night, talk-show host Larry King told guest Roseanne Barr that he'd never used the Internet, that he "wouldn't love it," and that it probably wouldn't be a viable political medium because there are "80 billion things on it." And then he proceeded to ask Barr how the bizarre invention -- what's it called again? -- works: "What, do you punch little buttons and things?" Barr, ever gracious, offered to show King how to use the complicated contraption. King declined. Too many moving parts, no doubt.

Reese WitherspoonReese Emerges Ryan-Free for Dolly


Reese Witherspoon will be making her first big post-divorce-announcement appearance at the Kennedy Center Honors gala in December. According to Planet Gossip's Marc Malkin, the Oscar winner will face the cameras (and the questioners) at the annual lifetime awards function in Washington, D.C., in tribute to her fellow Tennessean, country music legend Dolly Parton. "Ever since I was six years old," said Witherspoon, "when people would say, 'Who are you going to be when you grow up?" I'd say, 'Dolly Parton.'"

Justin TimberlakeParty Favors: Justin Slags Janet in New Song ... Piven's Jack Black Jealousy ... Lord of the Dance Seriously Ill


Justin Timberlake didn't like Janet Jackson's perceived diss on "Oprah" recently, and now he's hitting back in his new song "Give It to Me," according to MSNBC, with lyrics like "We missed you on the charts last week/[Bleep] that's right, you wasn't there." ... Jack Black says that Jeremy Piven is still jealous of him after losing out on the role of record store loser in "High Fidelity," which explains Piven's rude behavior at a recent film premiere. Piven, according to Page Six, stepped right into a conversation and turned his back to Black. Piven's rep says he "loves Jack Black." ... Michael Flatley, aka "The Lord of the Dance," is suffering from a mystery illness in a London hotel, according to reports. Reps have refused to comment on his condition but it may have something to do with the facial cancer condition he battled earlier this year.

I find it amazing that this Michael Jackson, Usher wannabe white-boy would have the nerve to dis an icon such as Janet. Janet has had an amazing career that a lot of other artists would die for. For Justin to not stand up like a man and take his share of responsibility for the Super Bowl, is a f****** disgrace. I personally do not
think that the Super Bowl was intentional, but janet should not have taken all of the backlash alone. If it were not for Timbaland's producing, Justin's CDs would be in the bargain bin at Wal-Mart. Janet baby, keep your head up, keep doing what you are doing, and never let anything or anyone from letting your beautiful light shine. Do not let the Super Bowl s*** define your life or your career. Much love to you always!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whitney has a message for all of you. "Whitney's doing better than ever!, don't worry about me, I'm wonderful. Let's worry about the people of New Orleans. They need your help right now more than ever. That's who we should be concerned with. That's who I'm concerned with. I'm not in need but they are. Whitney E. Houston. Love you's much!!!

Ok...part of getting clean is to take responsibility for your actions.Or lack thereof.Whitney still may have an audience outside of crack alley.She should only be concerned with gettting whats left of her life together.Despite losing so much dignity by putting her business on the streets, she could still have it all again.

I don't know what this story is about or what this idiots beef is but its another reason to hate little justy, what a petty little punk with a whiny little fag voice. If it wasn't for his mommy shopping him around when he was 10, he'd be head fry cook somewhere. He's what 30 and still acting like mousekateer bitch.
Can't stand the manufactured stars.

Okay, the only reason that wigger Justin Timberlake has a hit record is because of Timberland. And he wants to slam Janet Jackson! I doubt that he will have a 20 year career when it is all said and done!

Maybe Whitney Houston doesn't want to live in that New Jersey mansion anymore. I'm sure she'd rather live in Los Angeles, just a change of scenery. I also think that she got tired of living in the Atlanta area. I hope that she and her reps are successful in paying off the mortgage and the taxes.

Timberland? The shoe company?
It's Timbaland, the producer.

And Janet only had hit records because...oh, that's right, because her brother was once the most popular pop star on the planet.

It goes both ways, bitch.

HOW MANY TIMES CAN I SAY THIS    

People actually listen to what someone from N*SYNC says? Didn't they become super-over like 8 years ago? I don't get how this dude is suddenly important and talented when all he's really done is be in a manufactured boy band and then a manufactured solo career. i mean...seriously...people actually care about this guy?

My thoughts and prayers with Niamh and Michael Flatley. Whatever the illness I hope a complete recovery and back to dancing is just around the corner. God be with you both. To all the Celtic Tiger dancers who now are back home awaiting news if/when the tour will start again--God bless and as our wonderful friend Kay would say, "keep on dancing".

Um Justin will have a 20 year career like Janet-Trust me! Janets career is long gone, her newest cd is horse sh*t. Justin has already been successful for almost 10 years since like 97. He is half way there. Janet's old news.
