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.

Who that was there would have wanted to harm Whitney. Most of the people that were with her, were payed by her. She was their lively hood. I don't see anyone wanting to harm her, of course I'm not a police officer.

How much does the sister get paid for this silly interview? Whitney was capable of getting into her own bath. Did nurses usually bathe her? Seems a silly comment. It was trajic, but don't make it out to be something it isn't. Let the police do their work. Wait for lab results to come back.

Amy Winehouse
now Whitney Houston
When they're no use any more to the people that make money off them they LET THEM DIE!

Someone should have known that she might be in danger as a result of drink and drugs but they chose to leave her alone.

Now they'll make millions off her music and memorabilia.

I saw that interview & TMZ is printing is not what was said. Pat Houston said she did not know if where Whitney was actually found. She didn't know if she was found in the tub or on the floor because Pat saw her on the floor with her brother Ray trying to revive her. All she was saying was she did not know how Whitney got on the floor. Stop taking Pat's words out of context & trying to create a controversy when there is none.

First of all, no one knows what really happened in that bathroom. I don't think pat meant she didn't know how Whitney had gotten in the tub literally. Come on people. No one knows if she was put in the tub, or if she had actually taken the drugs or have been drugged. Dont believe everything you see or hear. Pat also stated that Whitney didn't have a problem with drugs before her death, but she did drink. Just like how the world said the family didn't want Bobby at the funeral.Pat also stated that was a lie. The only people that know about her life is GOD, maybe some of her family and Whitney herself.I just think people need to worry about themselves and their own lives before you get up here blasting this woman for something YOU DON'T KNOW.

OMG, Here we go again. Just like MJ, there's idiots out there that think she was 'murdered'. I can't believe it. You guys are MORONS. It was already made clear that she would take xanax prior to performing, for her nerves. That's not a problem for a normy. However, Whitney was NOT a normy. She was an addict.....JUST LIKE MJ.....and Whitney DID drink. If anyone had seen the interview that aired prior, the one where Oprah interviewed Whitney (2009 interview), Whitney admits she never stopped drinking because "that wasn't her drug of choice". (Although she did say she didn't drink a lot.) Well, if you're a recovering addict (like she claimed to be), YOU CAN'T DRINK OR DRUG!!! She had the misconception that she could still drink but just not do drugs.
She took some xanax and mixed it with alcohol. Put one foot in front of the other to climb into the tub and fell asleep and passed. Unfortunately, it was an accidental OD due to mixing benzodiazepines and alcohol.....NOT A FREAKIN' MURDER.

If Whitney's head had been held under the surface, cause of death would have been drowning. The coroner's office has already said there wasn't enough water in her lungs for drowning to be the cause which means Whitney was already dead when her head went under the surface. This is kind of like what happened to Andy Gibb - for those of you who are too young to know I mean Andy was the younger brother of the 3 Gibb brothers who were known as the BeeGees. Andy was a drug addict when he was very young and, even though he got off the stuff, his early habits damaged his heart and he died of a heart attack at 30. Whitney's passing seems to be similar except that there appears to be evidence that she had not put her bad habits entirely behind her.

NO one was there! Not one of you that's commenting was there, so shut up please. you don't what happened. like you were there in the bathroom watching her every move. " She put one foot in front of the other, and got in the tub." Lol you people are hilarious. Nobody knows what that woman did. Some of you idiots don't know what you did over the past weekend. Really?! Get over yourselves and let this woman rest in peace. This is ridiculous.

Patricia Houston is married to Whitney's brother, Gary, so she's her sister-in-law, not her sister.

She was a druggie for over 20 years, she took drugs and got in the tub. Man, the Houston family genes are not too smart. She was broke, her voice gone, nothing left for the poor star. I saw a clip of the show, who stands in a kitchen and interviews someone standing up, duh Oprah. Lame interview, damage control did not work.

Also, Pat was her SISTER IN LAW, not her sister. She was also her manager. If you're gonna post, TMZ, get it right please.

I watched the interview and I think Whitney's sister in law
threw her under the bus. Knowing what a s***b bag Bobby Brown is and was she defended him on TV... She didn't run to see what was going on in Whitney's room... come on. she knew her pay check would be gone. Didn't like the interview at all. Then Bobbie Kristina talking about HERSELF going to sing when her mother isn't even dead 1 year. if anyone else had a brain they would see this too.
