Poor baby. She's pissed that the cameras are there, and I feel bad for just having seen that photo of her.

Heard Whitney call Clive her daughters God Father. Maybe like most people who aren't family that stay during the entire viewing Clive paid his respects and left I think thats what most people do. Also,heard Pastor Winans being interviewed about Whitney dying he said though he was deeply saddened, he had known the Houston family for years and he was not surprised by Whitneys passing. It is sad she left behind a mother and daughter heart broken. Hopefully in time they will heal. I'm sure for them it will never be the same without her.

Now that the funeral is over it will be a ghetto bone picking and digging contest. Just like the Jackson family the leaches will come out and suck the bones for whatever they can get.

WOW - Glad to see that Bobbi Kristina whipped out the dress denim jeans for her mother's viewing. Who the hell wears jeans to their mother's wake ? WTF ?

Couldn't her kid have found something to wear other than bluejeans?

You'd think that Warwick's peeps at the Psychic Friends Network would have warned her about Whitney.

Bobbi looks angry. Cissy looks heartbroken. Dionne looks exhausted.

Whitney hurt a lot of people with her drug abuse.

They must have really hated Whitney to bury her in New Jersey.
I'm sure her daughter is high as a kite there.
