Whitney Houstons funeral on Saturday was one of the fanciest and most touching funerals a junkie who overdosed in a hotel bathtub has ever had, and once it was over, her teenage daughter stepped away to collect herself and reflect on the days events. And also to get high.
The Daily Beast says…
Just hours after watching an emotionally charged tribute to her doting mother, Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina Houston Brown decided she needed some time alone. So while friends and family convened at a local eatery in Newark, N.J., to remember the 48-year-old musical legend, Bobbi Kristina simply disappeared.
Wow. The daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown is good at sneaking away to do drugs. Who woulda guessed.
Even before the funeral was held Saturday, the family had serious discussions about Bobbi Kristina entering into rehab as soon as her mother was laid to rest, according to multiple sources familiar with the conversations. They say she spent the night after her mother’s death using drugs to dull the pain.
Of course she did. Because she was raised by two selfish fuck-ups and never had any decent parenting. They probably should have just pushed her onto Whitneys coffin at the last second and saved everyone a second trip.

Mel Gibson won’t actually be at Whitney Houstons funereal in New Jersey tomorrow, but he was apparently invited by her family, because as Us weekly says…
Gibson once attempted to help Houston with her own substance abuse problems, a source confirms.
TMZ was first to report the story, adding that Houston’s family was “extremely appreciative” of the time he spent trying to help several years ago.
And not only that but it could have made her family feel better to point at Gibson and whisper to each other, “At least when Whitney was high she never started screaming about the Jews.”

Whitney Houston spent her final few days telling friends she thought she might die soon, a vision she saw for herself because she was touched by God and had amazing psychic powers. Or perhaps because she’d been binging on cocaine, alcohol, and pills since November.
Houston had fallen off the wagon and “was as bad as she ever was,” a close source told Star. “The last three months of Whitney’s life were truly tragic.”
Like last week at the Beverly Wilshire hotel, for example.
“Whitney was in a lounge chair drinking pina coladas all afternoon. Once in a while, she would get on her cell phone and start screaming at someone. She seemed almost manic at moments and practically unconscious the next.”
Hopefully someone at Whitney’s funeral tomorrow will say, “Hey, let’s go grab a drink and drown our sorrows,” because a clever pun like that would really lighten the mood I bet.

Earlier this week it was reported that Bobby Brown would be banned from Whitney Houstons funeral in New Jersey on Saturday, but apparently things have calmed down a bit now, and the target for everyones rage will be attendance. People says..
“Bobby will be there at the funeral to support his [and Houston's] daughter (who was photographed doing coke last year). There was some talk … some people were angry at him, but that’s just grief. He will be there.”
I just hope they didn’t get one of those white coffins. Because that would look like a bathtub, which seems inappropriate.

Now that they’ve apologized for “accidentally” raising the prices on her records immediately after she died, Sony executives will meet this week to figure out what Whitney Houstons music catalog is really worth.
Prepare to be disappointed, Bobby Brown. CBS News says…
Houston’s estate is expected to take in about $10 million this year, but that’s far less than others will make because Houston did not write or own her songs. The bulk of royalties go to the songwriter and the publisher.
The late Michael Jackson co-wrote and owned most of his music. Just last year, his estate took in $170 million.
And try and guess if there’s any money saved up from when she was actually recording.
…just before her death, tabloids declared Houston was flat-broke and asking friends for handouts … her New Jersey estate was nearly foreclosed on in 2006 when she failed to pay her property taxes and she admitted to spending lavishly on drugs and partying in the past decade.
Hmm. Um, well, say what you will but she clearly wasn’t throwing good money away on frivolous things like conditioner. And, um, life preservers.

In September of 2001 there was a rumor that Whitney Houston had died of a drug overdose (which seemed reasonable because she overdosed twice the year before), and it became so prevalent that her publicist even had to issue an official denial.
Point being, Whitney Houston was high as fuck, non-stop, for at least 12 years. So, yeah. You don’t exactly have to be Spider-Man to anticipate some sort of danger on the horizon.
Whitney Houston told friends she “really wanted to see Jesus” in the days before her death … and claimed she had a feeling the end was near for her.
Whitney had been very spiritual in her final days, quoting the bible, singing hymns and engaging in intense conversations about Jesus Christ and the afterlife.
(One day before she died) she told a friend, “I’m gonna go see Jesus … I want to see Jesus.”
The next morning, hours before her death, Whitney was discussing a bible passage involving John the Baptist and Jesus, when Houston flashed a big smile and remarked, “You know, he’s so cool … I really want to see that Jesus.”
Awww. I bet her weed dealer Jesus will be really touched when he reads this.
