Such are the horrors of caving into an addiction.
Whitney will be sorely missed from the musical world. She had her faults just like all of us, but she fell hard trying to make a comeback.
Pray for her daughter and the sobbing relatives and fans. "He leads me beside the still waters."
Drink on Whitney from that stream of eternal peace. We'll always LOVE you.

Go cry us a river. She was a crack ho just like you! Only she could buy enough to kill herself. Suks being you stank stank.
So spill some forty ounce on the ground and say something stupid and call it gangster.
You really were collecting aluminum cans, the whole time I thought you were drinking the last sip.
Oh your mammie said she will see you at the Fish Fry, or social services if Friday comes first. We all know she can't see ever since that possum bit her azz for digging through those trash piles at night.

Xanax and booze will do it every time.

Sadly, even talented artists are foolish enough to play with drugs once they have money to burn.

Just think of all the good that could be done with the money show business morons waste on drugs.

Guess that warning label on the bottle that said "do not mix with alcohol" didn't apply to her because she used to be a star.

The horrors of drug usage is way up the list with a lot of stars.
They learned very early that the pressure of "stardom" has its pitfalls. The drug culture was produced by whitey(satan) to gain control over the weak minded. When you say yes to whitey(satan) its down hill after that.

not only in this town..but every place on the planet who heard her voice ringing loud and clear..her music and her life..her struggles with a control freak husband and her addictions to drugs and booze..a spiral downhill with a glimmer of hope to get back on her feet and kick the bad habits....her fans will remember her beautiful voice, not her addictions..she was a good person.

Stop describing YOUR childhood nothead.

You are mad because they said you were not smart enough and stank too bad for the short bus.

That is why your mamma made you walk to school from her alley.
