Relative: Whitney Houston A "Toothless" Crack Addict
— Ace

From the National Enquirer originally, so it may not be 100% on the level. The information comes from Bobby Brown's sister, who says she did crack with Whitney a lot, so she probably needs money, and the Enquirer isn't above paying for juicy stories.

But... who are we kidding here? She's a crackhead.

Songbird Whitney Houston has become a half-toothless crack addict who hangs out in dangerous drug dens and sees "demons" in fits of dope-induced paranoia, a new report claims.

...

"The truth needs to come out. She won't stay off the drugs. It's every single day. It's so ugly. Everyone is so scared she is going to OD," Tina Brown, 42, told the tabloid.

...

Lurid photos supplied by Brown, and reportedly taken in January at Houston's Georgia home, show a filthy bathroom littered with drug paraphernalia, including powder-coated spoons, garbage and debris.

...

The once-gorgeous, velvet-voiced crooner who wooed Kevin Costner in "The Bodyguard" now "spends her days locked in her bedroom amid piles of garbage, smoking crack, using sex toys to satisfy herself and ignoring personal hygiene," the tabloid says.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. There's no need to get all judgemental about that kind of thing. I've heard some people find pleasuring themselves while smoking crack in a pile of rotting garbage and not bathing for months at a time a harmless and relaxing pasttime.

Again, so I've heard.


Thanks to Craig.

It Gets Worse: She's broke and being evicted from her home.

Rich people can almost get away with being degenerate drug addicts.

Not rich people? Not so much.

1 I'm waiting to see which one of you miscreants says "I'd hit it." However, is toothlessness an advantage?

3 toothless is a serious buzzkill

4 This is really sad. I mean, even if all the tabloid gucky details are gossipy junk, she still has a serious addiction problem, as far as everyone reports.

I am a huge fan of her singing, and that National Anthem is as awesome as it gets. So many of these pop trash stars have no voice, no range, they're just screeching morons, but Whitney is truly blessed with talent. Just too sad she can't get the help she needs to get drug-free. Just another example of the destructive power of drug addiction.

5 IMHO she was one of the most beautiful women in the world, at one time. I don't recall how many years ago that was though. Probably 20.

6 But she can get the help. She's got the money. I assume there are family members that care about her to support her. And she has the strongest motivation to get clean that ever exists: her kid.

7 This is so sad. I was never that big a fan of her music -- nothing wrong with it, just not my thing -- but she was a lovely and well-spoken woman. But something (Bobby Brown?) seems to have driven her into a terrible orbit that will end with her squalid death. She will OD, or she will have a car accident, or she will have a heart-attack or an aneurysm -- but drugs will kill her eventually unless something changes. She is destined to join the sad ghosts of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin.

I hope her friends and family force her to get help.

8 I don't see how smoking crack keeps one from paying their housekeeper.

The drugs I can understand. I would be doing drugs too if I was married to Bobby Brown, but an unkempt bathroom is unacceptable.

You know what I'm sayin..?

9 Well, I don't know if this is true or not, but it proves that money and looks won't make you happy!

==================
Don't think so shawn, or she would have gotten rid of the habit already. Just money doesn't do it, and since I don't follow her life, and Bobby Brown from the little I know is a pile of [blank], I wonder just who around her influences her in what way, but I would think she's not in any rosy scenario.

12 Army Brat,

Too true! I am living proof that bad looks and no money makes a pround and happy Marine.

13 She has money to go into the rehab of her choice. She does not want to. And even if she didn't want to, if she actually suffered from the consequences of her behaviors she might be forced into treatment.

14 " ...locked in her bedroom amid piles of garbage, smoking crack, using sex toys to satisfy herself and ignoring personal hygiene,"

Imagine if guys could have multiples and vibrators did all the work! Would we ever do crack? I think not!

Everything else, including the squalor, you can pretty much count on, though.

15 I want 2 put out a feeler to whitney. i am an enabler.iwould love only you.and only bring in chicks u want2.the filth we'd have to talk about other than that we b golden

Posted by: w at March 30, 2006 09:01 AM (dbigk)

16 Maybe I missed something, but isn't possession of crack illegal? Why can't they just bust her and put her in rehab, whether she wants to go or not?

Ooohhhh, riiiiight, we don't enforce our laws anymore. Makes us look like big meanies and junk.

Posted by: wiserbud at March 30, 2006 09:04 AM (AQGeh)

17 She took out a 3.4 mil mort. to buy a condo in NJ? Wow, must be some condo. Maybe, she should check out A&E's Intervention. It's a great show.

18 shawn: She has money to go into the rehab of her choice.

She does not want to.
================
That is the whole point. It's not about having money. Addiction makes people want drugs and not rehab, so your idea that Whitney has total free choice (like a healty person) is an illusion.

===============
And even if she didn't want to, if she actually suffered from the consequences of her behaviors she might be forced into treatment.
===============
Her life being totally destroyed amounts to huge suffering already. She should be forced into treatment though, because it appears she is in a self-destruction course, and thus not capable to take the needed actions regarding her well-being.


Posted by: alessandra at March 30, 2006 09:12 AM (n/PLG)

19 Why can't they just bust her and put her in rehab, whether she wants to go or not?

They have to catch her with it. And they can't just bust into her house looking for it. You can offer people rehab in lieu of jail. You can't make people take it or stay in rehab.

I always here of that guy from Friends going into rehab. To me, even though he relapses, he seeks treatment before he is out of control. So, good for him.

Posted by: shawn at March 30, 2006 09:13 AM (uLve2)

20 Alessandra: You cannot force people into rehab and you cannot make them stay. You can force negative consequences if they don't. That's all. She has not hit bottom yet or any level that would motivate her to seek treatment. You can say she has no control but that is not true. She has the ability to seek and obtain treatment. Claiming that she has no control or no choice is the illusion.

Posted by: shawn at March 30, 2006 09:19 AM (uLve2)

21 She's so close

22 me: so your idea that Whitney has total free choice (like a healty person) is an illusion

shawn: You can say she has no control but that is not true. She has the ability to seek and obtain treatment. Claiming that she has no control or no choice is the illusion.
==============
"total free choice" is the opposite extreme of "no control."

I didn't say she had no control nor any choice. I said she does not have total free choice - because addiction robs people of that. Total free choice is what is necessary for Whitney to go a rehab center this minute.

shawn: She has the ability to seek and obtain treatment.

If she had that ability, she would have done it already. You are assuming you know the capacity of free choice that Whitney has, and you think she has a lot, and I think that you have no way of knowing, because aside from a couple of lines of information, you can't know what's going on inside her life, the state of her mind, details about her addiction problem, her emotional structure, etc.

Moving on to another topic.

23 They have to catch her with it. And they can't just bust into her house looking for it.

You can with a warrant, which can be obtained based on a reasonable suspicion that something is going on. I mean, she's got kids. Where is DCF? They will take "regular" people's kids away from them for less than this.

Plus, she is getting it somewhere. Either she is leaving the house to get it or someone is bringing it in.

Damn, they were able to search Michael Jackson's house based on reasonable cause. Wouldn't that apply here?

Posted by: wiserbud at March 30, 2006 09:44 AM (AQGeh)

24 Reasonable suspicion is enough for a "Terry" stop (brief detention.....Terry V. Ohio). Probable cause is necessary for a warrant (4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution).

Posted by: Red B at March 30, 2006 09:49 AM (xiSo+)

25 Okay, then, probable cause. (my bad) Wouldn't that apply here?

26 allessandra: I have dealt with crackheads, heroin addicts, and drug rehabs for over 20 years. People with horrible addictions choose to go to rehab every single day. Many don't because they prefer being junkies. She is in a hell of a better position to obtain help than my skidrow clients. The strongest motivating force for people to rehab is the threat of jail/prison or for their children.

Posted by: shawn at March 30, 2006 09:59 AM (uLve2)

27 wiserbud: There are alot of crack addicts. I don't think much would be accomplished by obtaining search warrants and busting down their doors.

Posted by: shawn at March 30, 2006 10:03 AM (uLve2)

28 Bobby Brown will burn in hell.

Posted by: kev at March 30, 2006 10:04 AM (3bO8t)

29 Well, like I said, I guess we just don't want to enforce our laws. Hell, there's lots of pedophiles out there too, so what the hell, too much work, let's just move on to something a little easier to deal with.

Whitney is a pretty high-profile addict and she is a parent. Again, DCF will take your kids if they think you spanked them once. How can they justify leaving them with Whitney when there is this kind of activity alleged to be going on in their house?

Posted by: wiserbud at March 30, 2006 10:12 AM (AQGeh)

32 What a fucking skank.

Hey, anyone want to carve on my back? I'll let you sodomize me with a whiskey bottle.

33 How can they justify leaving them with Whitney when there is this kind of activity alleged to be going on in their house?

Her daughter is living with relatives. But, yes, the article did comment that DCS will probably look into it and the court will determine if the relatives shd be her legal guardian.

There is not enough LE to enforce every law. It is more effective to bust people selling, buying, and using out in the open. Going after every crack user is impossible.

Posted by: shawn at March 30, 2006 11:23 AM (uLve2)

34 Why, didn't you know? The greatest love of all is a blowjob in the alley for a few rocks of sweet sweet crack.

Posted by: Canelone at March 30, 2006 11:36 AM (1Vbso)

35 Lots of posters assume she has money. It appears, from the articles, she is broke. No royalties from publishing and no touring equals no income.

She's a tiny version of MJ in that respect- years ago she bought a mansion that has since appreciated several million dollars, due to the real estate bubble. Every time the value went up, she cashed it in with another loan.

She's tapped out now, and the bubble's over.

36 I'm waiting to see which one of you miscreants says "I'd hit it." However, is toothlessness an advantage?

I'd hit it...with a sledgehammer. I really don't like Miss Crack-Diva very much, never had.

And advantage? You really need to question this?

38 One more time, Frank Zappa comes to the rescue:

Baby take your teeth out
Try it one time
Baby take your teeth out
Try it one time
Leave 'em on the kitchen table

Baby take your teeth out
It'll be fine
Baby take your teeth out
It'll be fine
There ain't nothin' left to smile about

Baby take your teeth out
You look divine
Baby take your teeth out
You look divine
Go ahead and eat the label

Baby take your teeth out
I will recline
Baby take your teeth out
I will recline
There ain't nothin' left to talk about
