Why all the sudden does everyone think she's so wonderful? She's the same drug addicted wreck she always was, but finally it caught up to her. Nothing changed to make her better. Its like MIchael Jackson - one day before his death he's known as a child molesting freak who was so reviled he fled the country, one day after he's a glorious, beautiful and beloved star... huh??

She is no different than the thousands of crack heads that die every year. The world in general doesn't give a fuck about them so why the big deal about her. If anything people should be angry that she threw it all away and turn there collective backs on her. I don't want to sound cold but hey, why is a celeb life more important that someone elses, say starving children? Just asking.
I have no problem with God,
It's his fan club I can't stand!!

Well, I can imagine how it feels for true fans - the thought that you'll never hear anything from her again.

On a totally unrelated note... now I keep mistaking Oprah for LaGuerta from "Dexter".

I'm a nurse and today in my hospital at least one person that I know of died. She wasn't famous or rich but she was a lovely lady. My heart goes out more to her, who died through no fault of her own than to someone like Houston who had it all and threw it away.

I found a great dating bisexual site DATEBI*C'O'M. It is a serious& safe dating site for the bisexual and bi-curious individuals to meet in a friendly and comfortable environment. It hopes that all members can make new friends and establish romantic relationships. I have to say DATEBI*COM the best site I have ever joined so far. They verify all members. Unlike other sites,NO scammers or fake profiles here, and you can meet many rich or mature women as well, including celebs, famous stars.BEST OF LUCK!///

Houston came across as an ignorant, dumb, mouthy ghetto chick. Crummy-looking. No class. Didn't sing, but screamed. Offed herself with drugs? Good riddance.

You got that right my friend she was the best ever it's too bad that she wasn't treated also very nicely just like Michael Jackson but overall she was a terrific singer and had such a beautiful voice that no other singer could have.She was simply the best and still will be the best ever.And she was a very loving and a very caring mother.
