Whitney Houston's Sister

I 'Don't Know How'

Whitney Got in the Tub

3/12/2012 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Whitney Houston's sister-in-law Pat is throwing more fuel on the fire for those people who think Whitney may have been murdered ... saying she does not know how Whitney ended up in the bathtub of her hotel room on the night she died.

As TMZ first reported, the L.A. County Coroner's Office has received phone calls and emails from people claiming to be relatives of Houston ... who say they believe Whitney was murdered.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired tonight on OWN, Pat described the scene that night, saying, "Don't know how she got [in the tub] ... I just know they had to pull her out of [the tub]."

The Coroner has already said there was no sign of foul play or trauma, but the official cause of death won't be determined until toxicology results are in.

This shouldn't have to be explained - but I'll take on the task anyway.

First, stand next to the tub facing the faucet end. Lift the foot closest to the tub up and over the side and place it squarely down on the floor of the tub. Shifting your weight to the tub leg, lift up until you are able to bring your other leg over the edge as well and bring it down squarely next to your other foot. If necessary, take a half step or two in any direction necessary to ensure that you are in the center of the tub. Now, bend at the knees until you can grasp the sides of the tub for support. Supporting yourself with your hands, gently lower yourself into a sitting position.

And that is how you get into a tub.

Why did Pat walk slow to the room and why did she tell the other guest to call 911 before she knew what happened? Why did Pat tell her brother to stop giving Whitney CPR?

Was it too soon for them to be interviewed? Will Pat be the manager for Bobbi Kristina also? Did Whitney want her daughter to go into show business???

I don't understand how she got in the tub is a story...isn't it possible she got in the tub the way we all get in the tub? We get in, sit down, take a bath. Not too complicated.

What did Oprah ask her to get that kind of response? (Leave it to Oprah to try to stir up some drama.) No sign of trauma/foul play is good enough for me. Why try to get conspiracy nuts going? Wait for the results for cause of death are in. I don't find it suspicious that the woman got into a tub before her plans to go to a party.

The whole " Whitney was murdered " thing is soooooo ridiculous. I mean come on, is it just that these people are trying to cash in on her before the interest dies down??? The woman was in the tub... she had her oil and other "bath" items that were obviously part of her bathing regime. And weren't there other people present in the hotel room. Didn't they knock on the bathroom door because they knew she had gone in to take a bath??? Give it a break people... a tragic accident BUT an accident at that. Enough with the trash talk!!!

I honestly believe that she was murked. Most people who take drugs like those, take them after a bath. Who was in the room with her or before this happened? What about security cameras. I can't believe that after doing copious amounts of yayo (in various combination shots and flavors), that she just ups and dies. On the same prose, Bobby Brown is still responsible for Whitney Houston's death because as a "husband" he should have stopped her drug shena****ns indeed of being a enabler and participant in her drug usage.

too shay    

Does TMZ do any fact-checking? Pat isn't Whitney's sister, as Whitney has no sisters. Pat is Whitney's **sister-in-law** (married to Whitney's older brother Gary).

This RayJ character pees on talentless, ugly, coldblooded KimTrashian on tape (well, okay, she let him). And then he's with one of the most talented, beautiful women in the world. Who's his next conquest? hmm
