    I really believe that people should'nt pass judgement on one another, this lady was someone's daughter, wife, sister and mother to her children. Let Mrs.Houston rest in peace without all the negative comments. It dont matter what she did in her personal life! Does that make her a bad person? Whitney was famous so that why her business was in the streets. I feel that we all have dirty secrets in our closets its just a matter of finding it out! Nobody on this given earth is perfect and who are we to cast judgement! God is my judge and hers, he has the final say in all of this. My prayers go out to the family may God be with you in these days of despair... Rest in peace Mrs. Houston you will be missed and still loved...you were the best female singer of all times!

    I know many ordinary people that have everything, yet still have nothing. She was still someone's mother, daughter and friend. Yet people should let her be mourned with dignity and no stageshow.

    Blah blah blah ..another celeberty that had everything but yet had nothing ..first the world had to feel pity for Michael Jackson and his sick pedofile ways and now everyone is suppose to feel pity for an over indulged drug addict with a marginal voice? ..how about using that wasted empathy for victims of child abuse ,rape or the atrocities being levied against the poor around the world ..time better spent

      That's why we have celebrities. So we don't have to face reality.

      Phil you are a heartless person... it shouldnt matter whether or not the person was famous or not... when we pass everyones life deserves to be morned and celebrated...although no thought should be taken away from the many child who are being abused, to have such a negative outlook on the death of another human being makes me wonder what makes u so perfect? And what are you doing to help those poor childern u speak of?
