Three Years After Whitney Houston Coffin Pic, Reports of Photo Being Shopped to Tabs of Bobbi Kristina’s Death Bed


I’d like to say I can’t believe it, but I can. TMZ reports that a photo of Bobbi Kristina Brown on her death bed is being shopped to the tabs. They say it was taken by “an extended family member.”

Let’s recall that when Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina’s mother, lay in her open coffin, “an extended family member” sold a photograph of her lifeless body to the National Enquirer for $1 million. The woman who ran the funeral parlor told me who she thought had taken the picture, and what had gone on. I wrote that story in this space, and on Forbes.com. (The latter, a bunch of amateurs, have since deleted the article. But it exists around the ‘net.)

Are we seriously doing this again? Could it be a repeat of what went on in February 2012? Are the same people peddling the photo? And taking it? Is this what we can expect from Bobbi Kristina’s imminent funeral, too?

What is it with these two families? Do they really need money this badly? And do they have no shame whatsoever? We’ll find out soon, the minute that photo appears somewhere.
