On his Fox News show, Monday night, Bill O’Reilly criticized the actions of the late singer Whitney Houston and her doctor in strong words.
Speaking on Whitney’s doctor, Bill hinted at an angle of contributory negligence saying, “the doctor who prescribed those drugs for Whitney Houston had to know she was a drug addict. Everybody knew that. Yet an M.D. apparently gave her powerful, legal narcotics. The same thing happened to Michael Jackson.”
While describing Whitney as one of the most successful singers of all time, Bill went on to add, “Whitney Houston wanted to kill herself. Nobody takes drugs for that long if they want to stay on the planet. She follows in the footsteps of Elvis, Janis Joplin, Michael Jackson, and scores of other entertainment figures. The hard truth is that some people will always want to destroy themselves, and there’s nothing society can do about it.”
In a recent report on the Huffington Post while speculating on the future of Whitney’s estate, an insider commented, “Whitney was living off of advances — loans from the record company — and had been [for] quite some time,…Most likely the estate owes the record company a ton and future sales will be used to pay back that loan before any money goes to the estate.”
In another inexplicable turn of events the expected public memorial service for Whitney Houston at the 18, 000-seat Prudential Center has been cancelled according to specific requests made by Whitney’s family.
According to a rep of the New York City Mayor, Cory Booker’s office, the family of Whitney specifically asked the city to avoid a memorial event and he added, “In compliance with the family’s wishes the city is not moving forward with any public ceremony.”
Whitney’s funeral would be held this Saturday at New Hope Baptist Church.
