First off your going off on a

First off your going off on a tangent and for what? Your comment has nothing to do with Whitney Houston. Sounds like you have your own personal problems. First off, I wont speak for other people, but I know emphatically that I was born gay. Secondly, Let me tell you how someone can force themselves to be with someone for yrs, because of society. There are sooo many people in the world who are scared of what society thinks, they would rather live a lie than to be true to themselves (Not talking about Whitney because I dont personally know her, do you?, speaking in general). Thirdly, frm a religious aspect their are homosexuals that think its wrong to be gay as well,so they try to stay on the "str8" and narrow path. Until you become a homosexual, you cant make comments about the lives of others that you clearly dont understand. I will agree with you though, people shoudnt run their mouths about Whitney Houston or anyone else they know nothing about. No Disrespect @smartblackgirl but you rubbed me the wrong way!
MrNO comment, but not really's picture

No dear I am straight but it

No dear I am straight but it is a fact that Whitney was indeed bisexual. This comes from way back before she was "INTERNATIONAL SUPERSTAR WHITNEY HOUSTON" when she was just Nippy with the big voice. This has all been said before she died, people are just giving more attention to it now after her passing. Get a grip
the truth at last's picture

What are you so damn

What are you so damn homophobic? You can disagree with discussing this issue, but why do you have to call people "homos"? Maybe you are mad because you are so bigoted that you cannot imagine Whitney being lesbian. Also -- perhaps you are so stupid that you have never heard of bisexuality. Yes - there are some people who like both sexes. So, the fact that Whitney married Bobby does not mean she never had sex with women. Good grief.

I love Whitney and I honestly

I love Whitney and I honestly feel touched and a bit of Cissy's grief, however I'm sorry to inform Cissy and others thinking the same, but when you die your soul leaves your earthly flesh and goes to either of two places: you are cut off from The Most High forever and sent to hell aka Sheol/pit or you go to be with the Lord in Heaven.  The dead do not float around on earth saying their last good byes and sending messages to the living. That is unbiblical and new age occult thinking.  There is however, a such thing as familiar spirits. Everyone has a familiar spirit. It's a demonic spirit assigned to you that has been familiar or around you since birth. Just like the children of The Most High have guardian angels charged over protecting you, you also have demons monitoring you whose mission is to eventually take you to the pit when you die. There is also something called necromancy where people contact the "dead". They are never really contacting the dead but are contacting demons familiar with that person that can tell you anything about them. As Christians one is not to engage in this as it is purely satanic, furthermore as a Christian you should understand what happens to you when you die. Pagans may engage in this but not Christians. Sometimes we feel so empty and at a loss so we make ourselves feel better by believing that our dead aunt, grandmother or what have you came to visit you. That is not true. If you want to feel at peace just ask the Lord, he'll give you a vision of your loved one and he'll give you assurance and peace of mind. Last time I checked He is the eternal Lord and King over ALL spirits.

As someone who was a

As someone who was a non-believer in a power higher than myself, I became a believer at the age of 16 when my mother passed away unexpectedly. That night she came to me in a golden light and was with Jesus. Within in my heart I know this to be true and as a christian this was the validation that I needed. So yes, I believe that Cissy was visited by the Spirit of her daughter just like I was visited by my mother. Open your heary, your mind, and soul and realize you are more that your five senses. Keep seeking beyond the bible. God has continued to communicate with man the last 2000 years. Miracles happen daily and I hope you experience one soon!

Umm sir, with all due

Umm sir, with all due respect. You gave alot of "so called' information about what happens after someone dies and I applaud you for what you say you know from the Word. However, God can do whatever it is He wants to do. It wouldn't make much sense to add something like what Mrs. Houston experienced in the bible, because as you mentioned, the demonic forces and people that operate in cohorts with them would only try to pervert the meaning and purpose of such incidents. Plenty of miracles happen to people everyday that aren't spelled out in the bible but they are real. The experience of death is a mystery that only God knows so none of us is an expert in that area. But keep studying and praying and staying close to Him while you're here because as you stated, the goal is to get to the right place, that being with Him in heaven.

No you are actually wrong.

No you are actually wrong. When you die your body returns to dust and your breath returns to God who gave it. Gen. 2:7. The dead completely cease to exsist until Jesus's return in the clouds to this earth. Read your bible....

At least provide scripture

At least provide scripture sufficient enough to back up your claims. Ezekiel 31:14 (KJV)  for they are all delivered unto death, to the nether parts of the earth, in the midst of the children of men, with them that go down to the pit.]  Ezekiel 31:16 (KJV) I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him down to hell with them that descend into the pit:  Ezekiel 31:17-18 (KJV) 17[They also went down into hell with him unto ] them that be[ slain with the sword; and ] they that were[ his arm, ] that[ dwelt under his shadow in the midst of the heathen.]  Luke 16:22-23 (KJV) 22And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

I still remember when a close family relative died. That night, in my dreams, we played as we always did...and then she told me she had to leave. I cried, asked her why, begged her to stay. She told me everything will be fine but it's her time to go. The next morning they called me and told me she passed away in her sleep. RIP Patricia.

Did you know that Aretha's

Did you know that Aretha's invitation to the funeral was revoked because the Houston family were upset over what she said in the Today Show interview? Miss Franklin implied (according to the Houston's) that they were responsible for Whitney's addiction. We will never know but one thing is for sure, they should have done everything possible to keep her off that disastrous 2010 tour after she lost her voice. Why were people continually asking her to perform when they knew she was well past it and should not have been on stage.

If "(according to the Houston's) that they were responsible for Whitney's addiction," then yes I agree. When you force someone to be something that they are not you make that person mad as hell. Some find that drugs are the only way. That's the same as if you tried to force a straight person to be gay, that would anger that person. I've even heard Whitney say to thine self be true like it was a significant philosophy of hers.

Um hum I heard that also. I

Um hum I heard that also. I am not surprised at all. This family likes to hide shit and blame people for their problems. I watched the interview with Rea and she didn't say anything wrong. She just touched on the fact that parents have to really talk to their children regarding the ways of the world. She also said that Cissy taught Whitney the right things, but Whitney lost her way somewhere along the way. I knew that they would have a problem with that statement because this family in true denial. They blame Bobby for Whitney's drug use when they knew good and damn well that she was already getting high with Gary and Michael before she started dating Bobby. They act like its so impossible that she died from drugs when they know that she was still using. Whether she was addicted to prescription drugs or alcohol before her death, she was still addicted. They act like Krissi doesn't have a problem. These people are really out of it. I do feel for Cissy for losing her child. I have also lost a child but she needs to be honest with herself.

I didn't know that was the reason Aretha didn't go to the funeral. I read that she said she had a concert, and didn't want to do both, which I thought was disgusting, and I believed the Illuminati told her not to go. If Cissy disinvited her, that to me is a better reason than a concert. I'm not gonna knock Cissy, as she just lost a child, and has a granddaughter teetering on the edge of disaster.

Whitney may have been Bi when

Whitney may have been Bi when she was younger I don't really know the facts about her relationship with Robin Crawford and neither does Peter Tatchell, just because he said it doesn't make it true. Whitney was no Queen Latifah and if she wanted to express that side of her nature after her voice and Bobby Brown were gone she certainly would not have ended up with Jay J. People are looking for all kinds of reasons to explain her addiction and sometime the reason is as simply as a person taking drugs because they want to get high.

As you sad neither you or

As you sad neither you or Peter knew the nature of Whitney and Robin's relationship, but EVERY damn body in Newark knows for sure. This along with Whitney's drug addiction was always well known even before she married Bobby. I'm not using her bisexuality as an excuse for her addiction, I'm just saying that it is indeed a fact. I give it 2 good months before Robin releases a tell all book about her and Whitney.

When a mother denies her

When a mother denies her child or not accept her child, that can fuck up a child's mind. It makes them grow into a bitter, bitter adult. Some say Whitney was "pressured" out of her self to live up to her mother's image of her, by marrying a dude and all that. Maybe Whitney could not stand up to Cissy and felt in order to show her love to Cissy she had to be like all the other girls and marry a dude. But when a person is denied their true sexuality it makes that person bitter as hell. Drugs or anything to help quell the anger and bitterness. Bobbi Christina is obviously like her mother in hiding something or doesn't feel totally accepted. Why else would she be avoiding her grandmother at a time like this?

CISSY seems dense. She seems

CISSY seems dense. She seems to deny everything. I've read that Whitney used to say "To thine own self be true." Whitney said that more than once. Whitney seemed happiest when she was with Robyn Crawford. But trying to hard to put across a certain image she broke off and married a dude, to dispel rumors of being a lesbian. I imagine it's hard to deny one's own self. And now, Whitney's daughter, according to reports, can't stand to be around the family. Why? Is Cissy that dense that she cannot relate to her own children or grandchildren? Whitney had to deny her own feelings for Robyn and now Bobbi Christina has to deny her own feelings? Or does Bobbi Christina have anyone to relate to? What's up with Cissy? Why doesn't Bobbi Christina want to be around her? I am not stating any of this with malice, but with love and prayer. Because when you deny people or not accept them for whatever reason, you push them away. They go to drugs or other situations to escape. Cissy really seems dense or really, really unable to understand her children and grandchildren, based on the appearance of things.

PETER TATCHELL STATES: "When

PETER TATCHELL STATES: "When I met them, it was obvious they were madly in love. Their intimacy and affection was so sweet and romantic. They held hands in the back of the car like teenage sweethearts. Clearly more than just friends, they were a gorgeous couple and so happy together. To see their love was infectious and uplifting. Whitney was happiest and at the peak of her career when she was with Robyn. Sadly, she suffered family and church pressure to end her greatest love of all." Mailonline February 20, 2012

Whitney dedicated her first

Whitney dedicated her first album to Robyn Crawford and asked that she stay with her. Something to that effect was stated on her first CD, on the back liner notes. And I've heard her say "To thine own self be true" in a magazine article. Many of us sensed that her marriage was arranged for image sake.
B.'s picture

How many marriages in

How many marriages in Hollyweird are NOT for image sake? Maybe Whitney was gay, maybe she wasn't. Maybe Robyn was her first love, and it ended just because they were young. At the end of the day, when you sign your soul aay for fame and fortune, like Whitney and so many others have done and continue to do, the end result will not be happiness on their part. It will be what the Illuminati wants it to be-stories of drugs and mental illness, pedophilia, and money loss. Just like Michael Jackson!

"To Thine Own Self "To Thine Self Be True" Is the absolute! Thanks to the principle of Divine Order, that our Sister Whitney, indeed, has transition to her state of Everlasting Peace! Whitney's Earth Experience should be an example of honoring Self, and pray for those whose Self Righteous! We haven't for one second lost sight that Whitney Mom, loved her daughter Dearly and wanted the very very best for her... Which may not have been the same thing Whitney wanted for her SELF!!! Peace,
