Whitney Houston Looks Great!

By Roger Friedman Whitney Houston has been rehearsing all week for tonight’s Clive Davis/NARAS extravaganza at the Beverly Hilton, I spoke with her last night and happily report that Whitney looks great, she’s at fighting weight, no kidding, healthy, healthy healthy. She’s going to star in a tribute to cousin Dionne Warwick tonight. It should be amazing. When Whitney saw Sam Moore in the hotel lobby, she ran over to the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and said, “I’m always humming Hold On I’m Coming!” It was one of those great times when you wished you had a camera! Clive Davis arrived right after her, and there was lots of hugging and carrying on. Tonight show’s promises to be the jewel in the crown of the Grammy weekend…

…Meanwhile, backstage at the Streisand MusiCares dinner, after the show: it was like the Marx brothers famous scene from “A Night at the Opera” as three dozen of Barbra’s nearest and dearest attempted to jam themselves into a small mobile home type trailer parked inside the LA Convention Center behind the stage in order to say hello. Jason Gould, Streisand’s son, had trouble getting up the ladder into the trailer because there were so many peole ahead of him. “It’s ok.” he joked. “I’ve seen her.” Marty Ehrlichman, Streisand’s elderly longtime manager, kept shouting brusquely at her startled friends: “Say hello and then get out!” The trailer was so crowded that Barbra’s husband, James Brolin, gave up and stood outside. The Marx Brothers would have been proud!

    I clicked on this link because I was SHOCKED to see any positive mention of Whitney Houston. She has lost absolutely all credibility as a performer after ripping people off when she toured without being able to do her show. She was not prepared physically, musically, or in any other way. It was the biggest musical scandall of the decade. Where have you been?

    Roger always plays up to them. Whit has gained major pounds and could play Aretha soon!. We wish her the best but wonder why she wont come clean about all the lesbian encounters.!

    Well, it’s over a year since this article appeared. Whitney Houston is dead! Another statistic out of the cut throat entertainment industry where people are used like unwanted tissue paper. Built up as a money machine and simply discarded. So many & so what? As long as the shakers & movers cash in on death as well as in life.
