Drowned...in Leaches and Lies?
Monique Houston, the ex-wife and Gary Houston has gone on record to say that she believed that Patricia Houston, along with Whitney Houston's two brothers, was involved in the disgraceful selling of a photo that featured Houston in her casket. According to Monique, selling lies and photos to tabloids behind Whitney's back was a common practice amongst family members. Houston's brothers allegedly had checks sent to accounts with various names in order to cover their tracks. Perhaps this woman is lying. However, if she isn't, what a truly sad state of affairs. It has been acknowledged by many friends(yet not any family members outside of Houston's mother) that Whitney carried the load and financially supported everyone. Is this anyway to treat a person who writes your checks?
Gospel artist and close friend of Whitney Houston, Kim Burrell, shared a touching story in several recent interviews. Burrell shares that Houston wanted her feet rubbed, however non of her staff or family members were willing to oblige her. Kim Burrell, in an act of love and friendship, volunteered to rub Whitney's feet. Kim Burrell shared that Whitney began to cry. Kim asked why and Houston replied, "because you really love me." Reasonable minds may conclude from this statement that Whitney Houston felt unloved. Not because nobody would rub her feet, but perhaps due to years of people constantly taking and never giving back. Perhaps Whitney was well aware of the affairs going on "behind her back", she was clearly aware enough to feel unloved by those who surrounded her.
When Houston died, she was supposedly alone. Despite the duties one might associate with assistants, managers, and bodyguards during a high profile weekend such as the Grammy's, it appears that all of Whitney's employees were out and about and living it up. Nobody assisting or managing or protecting. Or at least that is the most recent and official story they have submitted for public consumption. Her manager and sister-in-law Patricia stated that while Whitney called her more than once and left messages, she never answered the phone or returned her calls.

Drowned...in Leaches and Lies?
A PROBLEM BIGGER THAN DRUGS
Let's face it, the phrase "Say no to drugs" has been drilled into the minds of each and every one of us ad nauseam. To reduce the lessons one should learn from the untimely passing of the greatest voice of our time, down to something as cliche as the "dangers of drugs" is a waste. I'm sure Whitney Houston was well aware of the "dangers of drugs." After all, she had two older brothers already deep into the throngs of addiction well before she allowed it to take over her life. However, circumstances resulted in her choosing that path regardless. So, rather than focusing on the obvious, I'd like to attempt to dive into the deeper and perhaps, more significant lessons.
BEWARE OF THE COMPANY YOU KEEP
At this juncture, it would be easy to rehash Houston's obvious misstep in marrying "bad boy" Bobby Brown, however that story too, has already been told. Granted, Brown has launched his version of a publicity tour in an attempt to erase and rewrite history, but at the end of the day, his rap sheet has been far too publicized for far too long to expect the public to forget the years of insanity he has displayed over the past two decades. From peeing in police cars to domestic violence, that story has been written and sold over and over again. More importantly, Houston had divorced Brown 6 years ago. That chapter of her life was gone and discarded. However, once Brown was gone, who remained?
Accompanying Whitney Houston the weekend of her passing were several individuals:
Ray Watson: Patricia's brother who served as Whitney's bodyguard
Her sister-in-law and manager shared during a sit-down with Oprah Winfrey, that she didn't believe drugs played a part in Houston's death. While the initial investigative report stated that no illegal drugs were found in the hotel room, the last and final report stated that there were drug paraphernalia and a "white substance" in the bathroom where Houston was discovered. Patricia was there on the scene when Whitney passed, so how could she have not been aware of the drug remnants found all throughout the bathroom? The most likely explanation? Patricia Houston lied. Suffice it to say that there was at least one dishonest person in the fold.

10 Awesome TV Theme Songs in Random Order:
1) READING RAINBOW
Ahh, the memories. We'd watch this in elementary school and all the kids would sing along. Well, except me. I sang it quietly in my heart.
2) COSBY SHOW (SEASON 6)
Vanessa had the best dance, right? Right? Of course I'm right! The Huxtable's came with many different theme songs, but I think season 6 is the most memorable.
3) DUCK TALES
Duck Tales! A Woo Ooo! As far as cartoon theme songs go, this one is near the top!
Ok, so I never actually watched this show. But somebody in our house did, because I fell in love with the theme song!
5) SALUTE YOUR SHORTS
It makes me wanna fart!! Ok, I'm showing my (im)maturity.
It's one of those tv theme songs that just makes everybody feel all warm and fuzzy inside. We have no idea why.
7) PUNKY BREWSTER
I once owned a pair of multi-colored punky, brewster sneakers.
8) GOOD TIMES
Nothing says "Good Times" like temporary layoffs and easy credit rip-offs! Ain't we lucky we got 'em?
9) FAMILY TIES
It's so smooth and so 80s, and so worthy of being on a list of the best TV theme songs!
10) WHO'S THE BOSS
Well... it's quite inspirational, and well, I like it. Who's blog is it? Who's the boss?
