Dionne Warwick & Cissy Houston

Whitney Seemed Fine

Just Before Death

2/11/2012 6:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dionne Warwick
 and Cissy Houston spoke with Whitney Houston by phone just before she died and say Whitney seemed fine ... TMZ has learned.

Whitney's mother, Cissy Houston, spoke with her daughter 25-30 minutes before she died and nothing seemed unusual ... sources tell TMZ. We're told they talked about attending the Clive Davis pre-Grammy party.

Dionne Warwick, Whitney's cousin, called as well ... several hours before Whitney died ... to make sure they were sitting at the same table at Clive's party. And again ... there were no signs of trouble. 

The people in touch with Dionne say she is inconsolable adding, "She is an absolute mess."

As for Cissy, we're told she is "hysterical."

Its strange how coincidental Whitney's death is.

At the same day that Whitney Houston died, thousands of others deceased as well.

Check it out at youtube:

No words can feel the hole in a Mom's pain. Pain will heal over time . A Mom just lost a daughter and a daughter just lost a mom . I am sorry for the loss ! A great loss. Gone but not forgotton , her voice will live on forever.

My heart goes out to all of Whitney's family and friends. Fortunately we will always have the wonderful music she made to keep her spirit alive. May God keep you Whitney.

I could not relate with those who were sad when Etta James died, but now I think I know how they feel. Whitney was my generation's Etta James. Rest In Peace Whitney, I could feel that put your full heart and soul in your songs. They inspired hope, courage and helped the heart mend. Your vocal ability as well as your rendition of the American national anthem remains the standard....and yet there are ALOT people running their mouths about Whitney in a bad way.... People never cease to amaze me man!!!!...addict or not Whitney Houston is and always be a legend....How many artists are out here abusing some type of substance...majority do...that doesnt give u the right to speak so harshly about her.....Imagine if it was one of your family members that was a celebrity and this happened to, true she knew what she was doing, but people abuse substances because they are not happy with themselves or where they are at in life.For those of you who have nothing better to do with your lives that you would disrespect the dead. Please look in the mirror first.. How would you feel if you had died and all people did was talk bad about you?! Grow up and show some respect! Whitney Houston had a unique voice and great talent. She was only human and humans make mistakes and if you people can't realize that then you are no better then Bobby Brown, who let's not forget abused her for many years and was a very forceful man. She left this world beause she needed to be at peace again. She was angel on earth & now she can be angel in heaven......Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. She is dead its sad let her rest in peace. What will people say bout you when you die she is a celebrity thats the only reason here sickness was broadcast. Many ppl have demons too just isnt broad cast like hers leave her alone. Only God has the right to judge anybody. Enjoy your days!!!!!...How ever it happened we have lost a AWESOME artist.... MY prayers go out to her family and daughter Bobby Christina..... Rest in Paradise Miss Whitney,He has called you home to be with Him....♥ Your battle is over♥

This is so sad. I know first-hand it's difficult to lose someone so close. My heart goes out to Whitney's family - especially for her teenage daughter Bobbi Kris - who at the age she is now - needs her mother more than anything. You guys are in my thoughts and prayers.

I blame Dionne in this. If she still hung with her Psychic friends this coulda been prevented.

they didn't seem aware in the past when she was all f'd/u on drugs, i guess when someone is your meal ticket you are unaware of what's really going on with them.

Rest In Peace Whitney Houston. You will be truly missed. My prayers are with Whtiney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina, Whitney Houston's mother and the family. God Bless.

Damn, Whitney looks older than Dionne! Good thing she didn't do crack since it's whack because then it would have made her look even older...
