Whitney Houston
's body triggered high emotion from fans as it arrived at a New Jersey funeral home Monday night ... in a golden hearse.

Fans descended on the Whigham Funeral Home ... waiting for the singer's body to arrive.

A few opportunists were selling "In Memory of Whitney Houston" t-shirts for $10 a pop in the parking lot.

Whitney's mother, Cissy Houston, waited outside the home as well.

As TMZ previously reported, the family was divided over where to bury Whitney. Cissy and cousin Dionne Warwick wanted the burial to take place in Atlanta -- but were convinced by the rest of the family to bury her in Newark.

Whitney's mom looks so exhausted. Kathrine Jackson should reach out to her, both ladies have been through the same traumatic experience.

Good God, people. Can you show a little reverance and be silent as the Hearse passes by? You're not at some Lollapalooza fest.

This is getting beyond stupid and the people are already cashing in with $10 t-shirts saying rest in peace to Whitney. Come on now! You they have gone any lower to do it right in the funeral home parking lot. If I was Cissy I would have gotten the Newark Police Dept. to arrest their opportunistic azzes! How you going to be that dayum disrespectful? The woman ain't even in the ground yet and people already cashing in.

The Hearse is Tan for crying out loud. It's not even layered in gold leaf. So it's far from golden.

Really, if Whitney left no instructions in case of her death, only her mothers wishes matter. She should have buried her where SHE wants to. When was she even in New Jersey last? I can see the family coming out of the woodwork now to make a buck off this.

I hope this doesn't kill her mom. She is already over 80 years old and fragile. I pray for Ms. Cissy. They chose this funeral home, because her dead father's body was handled through this funeral home. Ms. Cissy was a attractve woman at one time. Its cruel to pick on someone who is old. No one knows how they will look, when they turn 80. Whitney looked like her father who was italian/ black.
TMZ calling the people selling T shirts opportunist is funny. They are the biggest opportunist of all.

What i don't understand is how an singer of this fame can go on being a drug addict for so long and it not be reported that much about before. I mean if Brintney was a coke head you would see her on the news every day how do they get away with the lack of scrutiny like other have to deal with
