Whitney Houston Family: Devastated Over National Enquirer Photo

by at . Comments

The family of Whitney Houston is reacting to The National Enquirer posting a photo of that singer's corpse as you might expect: with outrage and heartbreak.

TMZ cites sources who say Whitney's mother, Cissy, is especially distraught over the tabloid actually taking this measure, but there are no plans to open any kind of investigation into the source of this photo, which the newspaper has the nerve to refer to as "beautiful."

Meanwhile, Carolyn Whigham, owner of the Whigham Funeral Home in Newark, tells The Daily News that neither she nor her staff had anything to do with the image or its leak.

"We did not take that photo. We did not sell the photo. We would never do something like that," she said to the newspaper. "Whitney was a friend. I’m the one who flew to Los Angeles and got Whitney from the coroner’s office. I did everything to protect her.”

No problem -- now that we understand Mary Beth Wright, the National Enquirer's publisher's, belief that horrifying photos are "beautiful", anybody catch any of her in the bath or in a compromising position with a willing partner that they want to share so that they give her "beauty"? How about stories of her encounters or preferences? Or incidents of racial or other prejudice? I would prefer juicy pictures or videos, but one good turn like she did to Whitney and her family does deserve another.


Who every did need step up &said am sorry to family please let Ms Houstan have peace of mind .It hard when parent has buried a child.


People die everyday she is just super famous and there is tons of publicity you could just not look at it if it bothers you that much it isn't right but some people have no respect. People will forget about this pic so fast Whitney owned.


omg so devistated about witneys death it made me cry


I agree family mad cuz they didn't make money on pic. Put it on tv for millions to see should have known someone would take a pic. I don't think it was surprise I'm sure most of america don't either. Gotta make that paper.


No comment


They should just let her rest in peace and let the family grieve, But typical screwups just out for the $$$$$$


I meant sad.


Aww....That's so said.
