Whitney Houston's death is the latest in a string of celeb tragedies -- Michael Jackson, Brittany Murphy, Heath Ledger -- that show prescription drugs can be just as dangerous as illegal narcotics.

Plus, several people in the newsroom call radishes on Beyonce's baby pics -- claiming Blue Ivy looks nothing like her parents. Let the debate begin! And, breaking S.I. Swimsuit Issue news ... yes, bikinis are news too.

I think we should honor queen latifa instead of worship whitney. latifa was way more talented, she came from the violence-filled and drug induced "gangsta rap" to win not just grammy, but golden globe, oscar, and more. where latifa became a lady, whitney became satan's drug addicted alcoholic bad mother douche bag

Celebrities Suck    

Harvey, is it true that they only found out that something was wrong with Whitney because someone on the 3rd floor in the hotel called lobby to complain that water was coming into their room from Whitney's bathroom? That's when she was found in the tub?

For me, they should've cancelled the party.. (Parties while Whitney was still upstairs?!)--Ok.. I guess some events must go on.. --BUT, going to it (knowing what happened)--was a choice left for the celebs who attended it..

But then again--Whitney Houston--would've wanted the party to go on--in her honor..

(But still--wow, while she's dead upstairs?!)

#creepy :/

Whitney Houston Enters Rehab in Heaven.

There is an upside to the tragic death of singer Whitney Houston, I can exclusively report.

A reliable source on the Other Side tells me that the Grammy-winning chanteuse has decided to enter rehab to recover from her alleged drug and alcohol addictions.

“Drowning in a bathtub was a wake-up call for Whitney,” the source told me. “In a dramatic shift, she’s decided to abandon the wild lifestyle that caused even her most devoted fans to wonder what kind of s*** she was smoking. And what the f*** she saw in that fool Bobby Brown.”

Dead celebrities are just as f****d up in the Afterlife as they are on Earth, according to Dr. Abraham Tribesky, psychiatrist to deceased Hollywood stars.
In his shocking new ebook, Michael Jackson is Being Harassed in Heaven ($2.99 Kindle), Dr. Tribesky reveals the tabloid-worthy lifestyles and outrageous opinions of his famous neurotics from the Other Side. Like:
*Lady Gaga Banned from Rock 'n Roll Heaven
*DJ Decapitates Fan with Flying Vinyl (Is Biggie's Ghost to Blame?)
*Sinatra's Frank Advice for Justin Bieber.
*Same Ghost Appears in 20 Episodes of Paranormal State!

MICHAEL JACKSON IS BEING HARASSED IN HEAVEN, by Dr. Abraham Tribesky, psychiatrist to deceased Hollywood Stars ($2.99 Kindle).


“Starting today, Whitney plans to devote herself entirely to music. It’s still her #1 love, even though some say she spent enough on cocaine to buy her own Mexican cartel (a step one financial advisor allegedly suggested).

“Whitney feels that it’s never too late to right a wrong. She’s going to live life one day at a time for an eternity.

“Whitney is actually elated at this sudden turn of events. She’s as giddy as a crackhead with a kilo-size pipe.

“And to add frosting to the cake, Michael Jackson has just volunteered to be Whitney’s sponsor! What pop music lover wouldn’t want to be a fly on the wall at their highly entertaining AA meetings!!”

I’ll update this story as the situation warrants.

I would like to know if criminal charges will be brought against the doctor or doctors who prescribed her the prescription drugs will be charged criminally like the doctor was in connection with Michael Jackson's death.

Would it be possible that she had some seizure because of eating right before a bath??
