Houstons and Browns Saying Goodbye to Whitney and Bobby’s Daughter, Bobbi Kristina


What a terrible end to this story. Reports are that the Houston and Brown families have placed Bobbi Kristina in hospice care. It’s only a matter of time before she passes away. At least this way, she will be comfortable. But what a tragedy– to lose her mother so young, and then not to get to have a life. Condolences to both families, especially to Cissy Houston.

It’s not an overstatement that fame and money have not given this family a moment of happiness. Now it will be interesting to see who gets what out of Whitney Houston’s estate. It’s the Houstons’ money, and they should control her intellectual property rights. But who knows how that will play out. My guess is: badly.
