Whitney Houston may have only been dead for a year, but the people who were supposed to have always stood by her side are starting to turn their backs on her and Cissy Houston. You may recall Whitney’s mom being absolutely disgusted after Clive Davis had sent her an invite to his annual pre-Grammy party. Whitney died last year her in her hotel room preparing for Clive’s party.
Cissy made it clear she wouldn’t be going, saying she felt it was very disrespectful to have been invited to something that could make her even more upset. She had told Access Hollywood: “I got an invitation to the party, which is the most obscene thing. I don’t know why they would want me to come to the party in which she died, you know? … I guess maybe he just sent me a copy for remembrance sake.” Whatever the case, Pat Houston and Gary Houston felt differently about the situation – Gary is Whitney’s brother – because when they arrived a the Los Angeles LAX airport yesterday, a cameraman had asked them if they would be going to the party – one year after Whit died.
While Gary refused to say a word, pulling an ugly facial expression as if he was just following whatever his wife was doing, Pat didn’t hold back when she nodded to the question: will you be going to Clive Davis’ party? She quickly added “supporting Clive” before she entered a vehicle.
Now we gotta ask – is that a good thing or a bad thing?! I mean, Cissy was clearly against the idea of going to the party knowing that her daughter happened to have passed away on that particular day last year, but for some reason her brother Gary didn’t feel like it was a big deal; he just wanted to show support for Davis and remember his sister who passed away after mixing drugs with alcohol.
Earlier in the week, the two had told Entertainment Weekly: “[Clive] was such an important part of Whitney’s life. I mean, that was her industry father, and he really, really was,” Pat said. “My husband and I will definitely be there this weekend to support Clive. Absolutely.“
What do you make of it?
