I still can't believe this is true. I'm still in shock.
As we know, singer Whitney Houston was found "unresponsive" in her room at the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel Saturday afternoon and later pronounced dead by her publicist. However, TMZ is reporting the 48 year old may have drowned in the bathtub.
No illegal drugs have been found in the hotel room where Whitney Houston died -- at least not yet -- but prescription drugs were present, and it's possible the singer drowned in the bathtub ... TMZ has learned.
Sources tell us ... when EMTs arrived Whitney's body was already removed from the bathtub so it will take an autopsy to determine if she OD'd, drowned or died from some other cause.
Informed sources tell us ... Beverly Hills cops -- who were still searching the room at the time this story was posted -- found various pill bottles. There was no evidence that Whitney was drinking alcohol in the room.
Whitney's body was just removed from the room on a gurney. It will go to the morgue for an autopsy to determine cause of death.
I grew up with I Wanna Dance with Somebody, How Will I Know, the Bodyguard & Waiting to Exhale soundtracks. Houston taught me that it's better to be alone than unhappy. It's sad that most of us don't appreciate someone until they're gone. It is sad that over the past 10 years we've all joked about Houston's crazy, drug-related antics only to forget how great of a talent she was.
R.I.P. Whitney Houston, hope you're finally at peace.
