Whitney Houston

OMG! I am losing my mind! I’m at the airport waiting to head back to Los Angeles from Las Vegas and word just broke (via TMZ) that my darling diva Whitney Houston has died suddenly at the age of 48. The story is developing, no more details yet. I am stunned and saddened, I cannot believe this. I don’t want to jump to conclusions abut the cause of her death, but we all know about her struggles with drug and alcohol addiction over the years, what a shame this all is, I’m like in shock right now. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends during this obviously very rough time. We are going to miss you Whitney!
