Whitney Houston Selling New Jersey Home for $5.6 Mil


For Whitney Houston, the greatest love of all may be a great deal on a piece of New Jersey real estate.

The singer and former reality-show star, 46, is putting up her $5.6 million home. where she was married in 1992, up for sale for a steal of a price – less than half of its assessed value.

The five-bedroom, 12,561-sq.-ft. Menham, N.J., home was where Houston wed fellow singer Bobby Brown, whom she divorced in 2007 after a notoriously abusive relationship. Read the rest of this entry »


Cheryl and Whitney’s X Factor performances

witOnce again everyone is talking about The X Factor after performances by Cheryl Cole and Whitney Houston divided viewers and critics.

Cheryl Cole’s debut solo appearance on last night’s show was one of the most eagerly anticipated performances in the show’s history.

Viewers were up in arms last week when it was revealed that the talent show judge would be pre-recording her song and would not be singing it entirely live. There were also rumours that the Girls Aloud singer had banned her husband and other members of the band from watching her perform.

However, last night she did perform it during the live show, while husband Ashley and three of her bandmates looked on. Whether or not she was singing it live we may never know. So, was it any good?

Simon Cowell was definitely impressed, claiming it was ‘incredible’ and that she has a sure-fire number one on her hands, however, not everyone has been so kind.

The Sun says Cheryl appeared ‘petrified’ before taking to the stage and added that she looked like ‘a terrified hopeful’ as she performed. Read the rest of this entry »

Whitney Houston arrives for X Factor performance with a diva-sized mountain of luggage

She is only in London for a few days.

article-1220910But Whitney Houston clearly feels she is going to need a few different dress options during her stay, during which she will sing on the X Factor on Saturday night.

Miss Houston, 46, flew from Atlanta, Georgia, to Heathrow yesterday morning.

And while she was whisked away in a limousine to her top London hotel, her aides watched over the safe arrival of a mountain of suitcases containing the remainder of her belongings.

Miss Houston’s essentials had gone with her in the first car. While an airport porter can be seen here struggling under the weight of a trolley carrying 10 further suitcases just for Whitney herself.

Whitney is in London to launch her new album and make her first live UK performance in 12 years on The X Factor.

She was photographed leaving Atlanta airport but, perhaps a little weary from her flight, she avoided photographers at the London end of her flight by leaving through a VIP lounge at Terminal 5. Read the rest of this entry »

Whitney Houston Back to her best as she makes triumphant comeback at pre-Grammy party


Whitney Houston made a triumphant comeback at a pre-Grammy party last night after finally conquering her demons.

The singer has spent most of this decade out of the public eye after she admitted abusing alcohol and drugs during her former marriage to R&B star Bobby Brown.

Taking to the stage in a figure-hugging leopard-print gown, the 45-year-old looked back to her best as she belted out some of her biggest hits to the star-studded audience.

Houston was just one of a host of stars, including Rod Stewart, Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson, who performed at the 2009 Grammy Salute to Industry Icons in honour of record industry boss Clive Davis.

As well as honouring Davis, it gave musicians the chance to warm up for the biggest night of the year in the music calender, the 51st Grammy Awards tonight.

But it was easily Houston and Hudson – who has only returned to perform last week after the tragic murder of her mother, brother and nephew last year – who won the biggest applauses of the night.

Striding confidently on the stage, Houston sang ‘I got it, I got it’ before singing her 1993 hit I’m Every Woman and I Will Always Love You.

Whitney Houston’s Singing Is Fly

Who needs movies on a plane when Whitney Houston’s sitting nearby?

The “I Will Always Love You” songstress was on a New York to L.A. flight earlier this week with daughter Bobbi Kristina when they gave an impromptu concert to at least one passenger within earshot.

“Whitney and Bobbi Christina are singing the new Ne-Yo song,” the passenger emailed from the plane (they hadn’t taken off yet). “I am dieing!”

And I’m happy to report Houston was looking healthy and well rested. She also enjoyed some Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. “She looks fab,” my source wrote. “She’s in a white top, black pants and dark shades—and a great bob wig!”

Whitney is currently in the studio working on her much-anticipated comeback album. Sounds like she’s off to a good start.
