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.
