Which is better: Whitney Houston bawling a series of MOR ballads or Whitney Houston crawling round her filthy house, a crack pipe in one hand and a sex toy in the other? Whitney Houston apparently thinks the former.
After all manner of reports about the state of Whitney Houston's home, alleged drug habit and lack of personal hygiene were published, Whitney seems to have got the message – she's apparently entered rehab for the second time.
Last month the world was alerted to the apparently squalid nature of Whitney Houston's existence. Before, people thought of Whitney Houston as the all-American wholesome diva responsible for hits like My Name Is Not Susan and I'm Every Woman (Except Women Called Susan) or – for anyone who dared watch reality show Being Bobby Brown – a constipated singer who needs her husband to claw poo out of her arse with his fingers. But last month's National Enquirer exposed the truth about Whitney Houston to the world.
According to Tina Brown, her sister-in-law, Whitney Houston loves the crack, and is a paranoid wreck who sees demons wherever she goes in her garbage-filled mansion. The National Enquirer also reported that Whitney Houston:
Spends her days locked in her bedroom amid piles of garbage, smoking crack, using sex toys to satisfy herself and
ignoring personal hygiene.
Switch 'smoking crack' for 'eating Cadbury's Creme Eggs' and that sounds like a pretty accurate description of the hecklerspray offices. Anyway, it's now been claimed that the articles and pictures have pushed Whitney Houston into attending rehab. Tina Brown – yes, her again – is quoted as saying that Whitney had disappeared with nobody knowing where she was, before hearing that she had admitted herself into rehab:
"At first he thought she was just off on another drug binge. It took a few days to find out from Whitney's family that they had talked her into rehab. All Bobby told me is that she is in treatment, in a secluded place. She can still be the singer the world adored. I pray to God she'll get herself clean for good."
