Whitney Houston Jokes

How Soon Is Too Soon?

Whitney Houston's burial is still days away, but that isn't stopping people from cracking some pretty harsh jokes -- too soon, as they say? Plus, huge debate over flags flying at half-staff for Whitney. Some think it's disrespectful ... and one person in our newsroom is PISSED!
 
Also, Jennifer Aniston is getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame -- a huge honor ... that only costs $30 Gs! Where's the prestige if it's just about money?

(3:00) Whitney Houston's funeral invitation refers to it as a "home going service."
(5:50) Bobby Brown's ridiculous Whitney tribute at a concert in Indiana. Unbelievable. 
(14:30) Putting the American flag at half staff for Whitney -- this sparks Mike's best rant ever.
(18:32) Whitney Houston jokes -- you gotta hear the two John Henson cracked to us last night.
(19:10) Harvey and Charles read the best and worst Whitney jokes -- Rick joins in with a few of his own.
(22:00) Nancy Grace insinuates Whitney was murdered -- so Dan Abrams rightfully puts her in her place.
(33:31) A 95-year-old fashion socialite dies sitting front row at a fashion event -- and it doesn't phase the models.
(35:30) Hey... at least Zelda died doing what she loved.
(39:30) The Hollywood Walk of Fame -- a big joke now?

Harvey, when a sudden death such as Whitney's occurs who is legally in charge of everything that needs to be done? It must be complicated. She has an adult daughter but the daughter has issues herself plus how could she handle every detail of what needs to be done? But the question is, who is legally in charge? Or can any family member take over for the time being? Somebody's got to pay for and sign for and make all the arrangements pretty much immediately and then there's everything else afterwards.

SF radio was doing jokes about finding her in the bathtub on Monday (audio from the bathroom).

What Nancy Grace is doing is no worse than what TMZ does. TMZ is the last show that should question another show for talking about how a person died & if someone is responsible.

When you discuss the Halle Berry/Gabriel Aubry case, why don't you talk about Gabriel's background, his miserable childhood, hwo is friends considered him a "borderline racist", which is no doubt where is anger issues come from?

And has Gabriel gone back to work or is he still living off Halle?

Her life might of been short, but she made such an impact on everyone she touched - Whitney was put on this earth for a purpose by our Lord - thank you Whitney for touching us all - you will be missed. R.I.P. Whitney Elizabeth Houston

I think the results will show that Whitney had alcohol poisoning and Xanax in her system. I know many alcoholics who have died this way. Whitney was on a drinking binge and her body gave out. If she only took one Xanax with alot of alcohol she could die that way easily. Shame she could not stay sober. Alcohol kills.

who cares    

harvey plain and simple you dont know what drugs were removed before calling for help. So you are only speculating and what you say has no more meat on it then what any viewers post on here... So quit pretending like your all knowing of whats going on and whats in the room.

I personally find it to be distasteful to make jokes about anyone thats dead and the family has access to their cruelty. Unfortunately her life was a horrible reflection on her death. Live with it. its not about race. Its about an addict that couldn't get it together

I don't think they needed to fly the flag at half-staff. Many people die just because she is famous doesn't mean she needs this. Stick with lowering the flag to things like 9/11.

The flag at half-staff isn't about Whitney. It's about how screwed up the Republican Party is.
