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."

Another Hollywood cautionary tale. But I will remember her as she was in the late 80's and 90's in her prime. And no-one could deny her unique talent


you are right on, Holly!

If Bobby Brown is such a good father, he should be with his daughter, afterall she just LOST her best friend/mother. Is he with her tonight? If not where, or what is more IMPORTANT than his daughter GRIEVING. She NEEDS her grandma more than EVER, and Aretha, and Dionne. R.I.P *Whit*.

First of all people your spelling sucks. It's PEACE not peice; LOSS not lost; GOES not go's ; SAD not said. That was in the first 15 comments. I'm afraid to keep reading! As far as Whitney is concerned, it is very sad that her addictions may have caused her death. I wish her family peace during this troubling time. To the rest of you, www.dictionary.com is awesome.

in previous times ( until adequate fuses were developed and available )many people died on heart stillstand in their bathtub if any electric device fell into the bathtub. Today most houses ( and very probably also the Beverly Hilton) are 100 % secure against that by these socalled "FI" fuses I don`t know. but what would happen if somone is strucked with a teaser while being in the bathtub?
Racism never dies out totally in America as well as antisemtitism never really dies out in germany or revanche or hate between war affected tribes and countries . Its either fate or because people cant forget.
ANd so- anyone always might still be out there either with a license to kill or believing to have a license to kill!


My condolences go out expecially to Whitneys doughter who had a breakdown yesterday. I hope grandmother or Aretha Franklin (the old codex) will make sure to care and to save a fund for her future- same as MJJ parents cared for Michael three children.
Whitney appeared to me to be a descendant of black slaves anyway but someone who was educated to be that kind of good girl with the hope, to be recognized as such by the white population
Her unnatural death might have been a murder or an accident, but as any unnatural death it disturbs naturs or gods plan.- This is maybe why people will search the reason for her sudden death. If this is not correctly reported rumours will never stop.
There are million or billion singers on this earth. But there is no reason to kill any of them.

to be corrected ( last posting):
Racism never dies out totally in America as well as antisemtitism never really dies out in germany or revanche or hate between war affected tribes and countries .The time has not come yet that we live on a peaceful planet without warfare. Its ratzher opposite , people get more an more aggressive against each other ( instead of attacking the responsible ones ion power)and the main reason is their economic situation Its either fate or because people cant forget. BUT MOST HATE IS DONE BA REASON OF REVANCHE. Some times it might be acceptable but only against the ones who did the harm but not against innocent ones . Christian believe says its god only who makes revanche . But if it comes like that,even religious people might take revanche themselves. As Christ said, nothing would be worse than if people won`t give up revanche at any time as hate and murder will go on forever, as it is mostly again done against innocent ones!
DonT judge others as you cant just judge them correctly! better judge yourself. that is what Jesus who was at least a grand teacher also said.. Think about...

Have anby of you ever had a friend that was always stoned and when he/she isn't they acted high? Well this is exactly what I picturing happened with Dionne and Cissy. They got so used to seeing her stoned they couldn't tell the difference anymore.

EFFING WORTHLESS DRUG ADDICT IS FAIL.

OMG anyone can see how drugged up Whitney is in the above picture with D. Warwick!!!! Too much attention is on how wonderful Houston's voice was, let's discuss all the hard core drugs she took. Don't blame it all on Bobby Brown, she had a will of her own and knew he was gutter slum!!! Her daughter seems like she is headed for disaster also.
