TMZ is reporting a family source is saying Bobbi Kristina’s situation is bleak, one day after she was found unresponsive in a bath tub at her Roswell, Ga., home. This comes days before the third anniversary of her mother, Whitney Houston’s accidental drowning death.

More on Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition from TMZ:

…Bobbi Kristina has “significantly diminished” brain function and doctors have told her family it does not look good … this according to sources connected with the family.

As we previously reported, the 21-year-old was found face down in her bathtub Saturday and not breathing.  She was revived, taken to the hospital where she was placed in a medically-induced coma.

She is currently on a ventilator but we’re told tests have determined her brain function is alarmingly low.

Bobbi Kristina’s dad, Bobby Brown, is at her bedside.

Doctors have told the family they should continue hoping and praying, but the signs are not good.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was found face-down and unresponsive in the bathtub of her Roswell, Ga. home on Saturday. TMZ is reporting that Bobbi Kristina has been placed in a “medically induced coma for swelling of the brain.”

This comes 11 before the third anniversary of Whitney Houston’s death from accidental drowning in a bathtub at a Los Angeles hotel.

Bobbi Kristina Brown’s husband, Nick Gordon, and a friend found her in the bathtub, Roswell police said. Gordon performed CPR until the paramedics came. It is not clear why she fell unconscious, but she is reportedly still in danger. She is currently being hospitalized at North Fulton Hospital in Roswell.

No Pat Houston, Angela Bassett-Directed Whitney Movie Wasn’t Terrible

No Pat Houston, the Angela Bassett-directed Whitney Houston biopic wasn’t one of Lifetime’s bad movies. My expectations were pretty low, since Lifetime has a history of movie bombs. In fact “Whitney” was quite tastefully done, but glossed over a lot about Whitney. We learned nothing new about Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s toxic marriage. It mostly focused on four years of her life, from 1989-1993.
Still, the response on social media was a far cry from the firestorm that erupted over Lifetime’s Aaliyah movie. Still, I would have liked to see more about Whitney Houston, played by Yaya DaCosta, and not so much about Bobby Brown, played by Arlen Escarpeta.

Pat Houston wrote, “If you watch this movie, watch it knowing that Lifetime is notorious for making bad biopics of deceased celebrities and brace yourself for the worst.””But misrepresenting the term friendship to advance an agenda is not only disrespectful and dishonest but a slap in the face to her true and loyal friends. You should expect people will always rise to the occasion for prominence and profit – not love, respect or honor. I question the morality of the making of this because of the lack of experience knowing Whitney’s life. Never would Whitney allow her story to be told by an inexperienced team and how naive of anyone to think otherwise, unless you’re caught up in illusions of grandeur that you can just do anything and people will accept it. This made for TV movie is certainly not a trailer to Whitney’s life story.”

I am not sure what the Houston family was trying to cover up when Pat Houston told fans to brace themselves. It was documented that Whitney Houston was introduced to cocaine by her brother and not by Bobby Brown. Maybe that’s the image of Whitney Houston they didn’t want to relive. Angela Bassett stayed away from the “crack is whack” drama, and the last days of her life. The family may have wanted Bassett to gloss over the singer’s flaws and paint her as an angel, as we saw with the “Selena” biopic.

It is clear that Whitney Houston had many demons, but she seemed to have been a person who was full of life and loved hard. I wish Angela Bassett had focused a little more about Whitney’s strong points. Not mostly her weaknesses. I don’t think she corrupted Bobby Brown. He was already corrupted in so many ways. The end result was “Whitney” was really Bobby Brown’s redemption. Some folks may want to judge Whitney Houston for falling in love with a “bad boy,” but I think many, many women love as hard as Whitney Houston did and also had Bobby Browns in their lives.

All in all, Angela Bassett did a good job and I hope more film directing is in the future for her. Next time around, I hope she aims higher.

Here are some of the tweets about Whitney movie:

Cissy Houston isn’t happy with a planned movie about her late daughter, Whitney Houston, saying “Lifetime has chosen to go ahead with the movie about Whitney in spite of my family’s objections,” Entertainment Tonight reports.

“No one connected with this movie knew Whitney or anything about her relationship with Bobby,” Houston said.

“In the two years since Whitney’s death, many people have stepped forward to speak about their close relationship with her. I find it difficult to believe people who knew and supposedly loved her would participate in a movie about her done by folks who didn’t know her. We are exhausted by the continuing misinformation and comments offered by people who did not know her. Please please let her rest.”

The project is being directed by actress Angela Bassett, who got some shade from Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina.

Sgt. Brian Weir Sues City Over Retaliation in Whitney Houston Death Fallout

Whitney Houston Death Fallout:  Beverly Hills police Sgt. Brian Weir filed a lawsuit against the city, claiming retaliation after reporting that a detective made inappropriate comments about Whitney Houston’s body at the scene of her death.

Houston drowned in a bathtub at the Beverly Hills Hilton two years ago. Weir alleges that a detective sergeant kneeling by the singer’s body, removed a sheet and remarked that she was “still looking good,” plus other comments.

Sgt. Brian Weir said he reported the alleged remarks and was harassed, removed from the SWAT and K-9 units and denied promotions.


Billboard Music Awards Showdown As Whitney Houston Relatives Demand Ray J Change Seats or Else

BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS DRAMA:  Drama at the Billboard Music Awards last night as Ray J and members of Whitney Houston’s family had a showdown of sorts. According to TMZ, Ray J was seated next to the late singer’s family and Pat Houston, her manager and sister-in-law, didn’t want any of that. She believes Ray J was a  very bad influence on Whitney Houston.

TMZ:  Pat Houston‘s blood was boiling because she, Bobbi Kristina and other family members were seated next to Ray J, the person Pat believes was a very bad influence on Whitney.  Minutes before the tribute to Whitney, Pat asked her security to remove Ray J from his seat, but he refused to budge.

Our sources say … Pat’s security summoned hotel security, along with several uniformed officers to physically remove Ray J.

Just before push was about to come to shove, security warned Pat that things would likely get physical and it would almost certainly be caught on video, just as Whitney was about to be honored.  Sources say Pat then grudgingly recanted and Ray J kept his seat.

Um, if Pat Houston & Co., knew Ray J was such a bad influence in Whitney Houston’s life, why didn’t they try to do something about it? Just like Bobby Brown, who they claim was also a bad influence in her life. Be that as it may, being mad at either men now isn’t going to bring Whitney Houston back. Besides, they are ignoring the role she played in her untimely demise.

Bobby Brown’s Sister, Leolah Brown, Says Ray J Was Whitney Houston’s Supplier

Bobby Brown's Sister, Leolah Brown, Says Ray J Was Whitney Houston's Drug Supplier

Bobby Brown’s sister, Leolah Brown, is on Dr. Drew’s show on HLN and making some explosive allegations, calling Ray J, Brandy Norwood’s brother, Whitney Houston’s “runner boy,” who supplied her with the drugs. Um, but didn’t her sister and her brother also do drugs with Whitney Houston? Still, it’s a disgrace that Whitney Houston died as a result of the demon of drug addiction that still dogged her after all these years. Leolah Brown also accused Ray J of giving Whitney Houston “bad drugs.” SMH.

I would love to know who cleaned the room after Whitney Houston died before the police got to the hotel room. I am also shaking my head that Pat Houston, Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law and manager claims that the singer was not doing drugs. Um, they found cocaine and marijuana in her system, as well as Xanax, Flexeril and Benadryl.

Leolah Brown claims she signed papers for legal guardianship of Bobbi Kristina brown and she never signed new papers giving up that right. Bobby Brown’s nephew Kelsey Brown says that Pat Houston is manipulating the teen and they are very wary of her. Leolah Brown is also claiming that Pat Houston manipulated her way into the family and that her husband was married to Monique Houston at the time they met. Go figure, but the last thing we really need to hear is Whitney Houston’s dirty laundry being aired on television for the sake of ratings.

I generally like Dr. Drew, but this show was a disgrace because he pandered to Bobby Brown’s family knowing about the tumultuous relationship the singer had with their family member. Who is really going to take Leolah Brown serious when Whitney was their meal ticket for the longest.

Bobby Brown Seeking to Capitalize Off Whitney Houston’s Death, Shopping Biopic Script to Hollywood Studios

Bobby Brown Seeking to Capitalize Off Whitney Houston's Death, Shopping Biopic Script to Hollywood Studios

Well, it didn’t take Bobby Brown long to try to capitalize off his dead ex-wife, Whitney Houston. Radaronline is reporting Brown is shopping a script to Hollywood studios about his tumultuous life and wants his daughter Bobbi Kristina to be the co-star. The script, entitled “The Bad Boy of R&B: The Bobby Brown Story” was initially being sent out to potential backers late last year but received very little interest, Radaronline reports.

Let’s be honest, who would really want to watch a biopic about Bobby Brown? Didn’t we see enough drama during his reality show with Whitney Houston? He’s all about making money and yes, even at the expense of Whitney Houston. We know who was the money maker in that marriage. Don’t we already know what Whitney Houston’s life was with him? Would anyone watch an Ike Turner biopic over ex-wife Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got to Do With It?”

Whitney Houston’s Daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown Says “I Can Always Feel Her”

Oprah Winfrey interviewed Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina, her manager and sister-in-law Patricia Houston and her brother, Gary Houston for her OWN Oprah’s Next Chapter show. Bobbi Kristina Brown said she feels her mother’s presence everyday.

I found it a little weird when she said sometimes “lights go on and off” in her mother’s home. Um, that would mean the house is haunted. In any case, they treated Bobby Brown fair in the interview and even said, Pat Houston and her husband, saying they get along with him.

Pat Houston made a dig at Ray J, who Whitney Houston had been reportedly having a relationship with, saying she was looking for love in the wrong places and with someone younger than she was.

Personally, I think Bobbi Kristina Brown should have followed her grandmother Cissy Houston and not given an interview so quickly after Whitney Houston’s death. Oprah Winfrey was just in it for the ratings, since OWN has been slumping. The show drew 3.5 million viewers, the largest audience ever in OWN’s 14-month history, according to media reports. In women 25-54, the special posted a 3.1 rating and was up triple digits vs. Oprah’s Next Chapter‘s season average. I know Oprah cared deeply about Whitney Houston, but she scored a major scoop over Barbara Walters and Diane Sawyer.

Janet Hubert, Aunt Viv on “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” Says Wendy Williams Bullied Whitney Houston

Janet Hubert, who played Aunt Viv on “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” has written an open letter to talk-show host Wendy Williams, saying she “bullied” Whitney Houston and is a hypocrite for shedding crocodile tears at her passing. You will recall in 2003, Wendy Williams and Whitney Houston had an intense argument over her  drug abuse, finances and Williams’ incessant need to insult the her at every turn. Here’s the letter:

Dear Wendy,

This past weekend was a very difficult time for so many of us.

Though I never knew Whitney Houston, I felt a profound sense of loss and sadness. On Sunday morning I took my dog for a walk in the park across the street and still could not shake the sadness I felt. I wondered if what I was feeling was perhaps related to losing my mother and brother this past year, but then I thought no, it was something else.

I watched the funeral service with the rest of the world, and cried time and time again with each story that was told. I felt like I knew more about this amazing woman than ever before. We all watched her as a little girl, center stage, singing like a bird, she was destined for superstardom. To watch her center stage full circle in death was a feeling no mother should ever have to feel. I applaud Ms. Warwick, the pastor, and all others who formed a police line of love and protection around her that was impenetrable only to those who really knew her. We, the public accepted their decision to keep it private, but they allowed us to witness her Home Going ceremony, I don’t know if I could have been so gracious. WE felt like we knew her and we knew nothing about her except what we read and hear from people like you and other media outlets. I listened to her interview with you and was compelled to say out loud. “Go on Whitney tell her like it is,” when you pried into her life back then. I had my son in the same year as Ms. Houston; we did Ebony Magazine that same year, she introducing her baby girl and me my son. I am trying to be dignified, but here goes. Source

Here’s the bottom line, Whitney Houston was a grown woman and was responsible for her actions, including her drug abuse and drinking. She surrounded herself with the wrong people, some enablers, who didn’t have her best interest at heart. Whitney Houston has no-one to blame for drinking and taking prescription drugs but herself. On the other hand, it’s high time for the music industry to put standards in place to catch drug-use in the people who sign to their labels. These entertainers aren’t cash cows and money makers. They are human beings.

If Janet Hubert cared so much, why didn’t she reach out to help Whitney Houston kick her drug habit. If memory serves me correctly, Wendy Williams has been clean for over 10 years. Whitney Houston was a grown woman who made bad choices and treated her body and her great voice like an amusement park. Her mother, Cissy Houston, tried to get her clean, but was without much success. I do see a great deal of sadness at her passing because this is like a game of musical chairs with entertainers and drugs. We will hear about another singer who dies from a deadly cocktail of prescription drugs or street drugs and alcohol. It’s time for the entertainment industry to start drug-testing the people signed to their labels or studios. You can’t create a climate of drug abuse and still collect money when these entertainers die from accidental overdose. That’s akin to blood money.

Here is the Wendy Williams altercation with Whitney Houston:
