Poor Clive- he was her biggest supporter. She's disrupted enough parties why not one more for the raod.

HEY- who wants to bet at least 2 of the Lard-ass-ians will be there. This party will have way too many photogs to keep them away.

It's not only the "the show must go on" have you seen the tweets coming out of the bev. hilton right now, promoting their "gala" as if nothing has happened?

On twitter they are @beverlyhilton and I hope there is a boycott from many to their organization for this malicious and outrageous behavior!

They said things like "who will be stepping out"? and "clive davis pre grammy gala" not 20 minutes after offering their condolances. It's one thing to offer condolences but it happened at their hotel but also that Clive Davis is almost like a second father to her where her career (and frankly her life) were concerned.

If this is something they think is doing "damage control" they are just making it so much worse!

I can understand the reason for the party going on its just such a sad time. I can only imagine how Clive feels he was like a second father to her in many ways. My prayers go out to the Houston and Brown families and her extended family and friends.

It's a great shame that Whitney Houston could not overcome her demons. Why couldn't she deal with her demons? Check out www.Hear-The-Truth.com

There's too much money to be lost by the drug dealers to cancel the party. Of course it will go on!

TMZ, this is the best that you all can do? Why does it have to be "DESPITE". Go get the story correct and while you're at it, pick up some respect. FYI Clive Loved Whitney, so you could have done better but, this is how you all do it... TRIFLING
