Home Celebrity Whitney Houston’s Brother Will OWN Up to Drug Influence Tonight with Oprah

It only took Whitney Houston’s death and Oprah and a new book to promote by Cissy Houston for a “revelation” tonight on Oprah’s OWN network. Oprah’s peeps are hyping a big “reveal” from Michael Houston. But we all know that in 2001 Michael was arrested for drug possession. http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,622428,00.html.

Everyone blames Bobby Brown for Whitney’s drug problems, but they were already in her family. Michael was arrested for possession of  cocaine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and being under the influence of drugs in Fort Lee, N.J.. Cops pulled over his car and found everything. Whitney’s other brother, Gary, has also had innumerable problems. Gary Houston was pulled over while driving in Charlotte, North Carolina in 1996  for possession of crack cocaine. Let’s not forget that.

It’s sad because Michael and his wife Donna, especially, are considered the “good” Houstons. But they’re being dragged out tonight to help sell Cissy’s book, “Remembering Whitney,” which hits stores tomorrow. If only somebody had ‘remembered Whitney’ maybe she’d be alive today. All the Houstons are to blame, not just Michael.

  1. Whitney Houston story is heartbreaking yet it is not unlike many families that struggle with drugs, emotional pain and inner struggle. Unfortunately for the Houston family it played out in front of the world. I hope this family heals and particularly Whitney’s brother Michael. Having a small glimpse into the family the love for one another was strong and Whitney would want her brother to live victoriously. I pray he forgives himself and trades his sorrow for Gods unfailing love.

  2. I don’t have the OWN channel so I am wondering in advance if Michael will reveal at what age was Whitney using drugs. eg. before she became famous as a model in the early 80s? and did he do this to sabotage Whitney in some way, because she got all the attention, fame and money and he and Gary were nobody’s.

  3. I remain a long-time ardent fan of the late Whitney Houston, but I am tired of hearing about the leeches and the sycophants. Let Whitney Rest In Power!
