Whitney's Daughter Bobbi Kristina Also Found Unconscious in Hotel Bath

There were almost two tragedies in the family over the weekend, with sources revealing that Whitney Houston's daughter was found unconscious in a bath at the Beverly Hilton Hotel the day before her mother died in similar circumstances. Checked in under her mom's name and in a room on the same floor, friends grew concerned when she wasn't responding through the locked door and had to get security to let them into the bathroom -– where they found her asleep in the bath –- and help Bobbi out of the tub.

There is nothing to suggest that she was under the influence of any drugs or medication, just as there is no confirmation that she wasn't. Rough. [TMZ]
And the sad just keeps getting sadder, it's known that Bobbi was hospitalized on Sunday morning after learning of her mother's death but it turns out she was rushed there a second time that day after mixing booze and pills. "She tried to ease the pain of losing her mother by having a few alcoholic drinks," said a source. "She was distraught, on the verge of a complete breakdown. Not knowing what to do, members of her mother's entourage tried to calm her down with a sedative. The two were an unfortunate mix and she ended up passing out." Um, someone needs to get her mother's entourage far away from Bobbi. [Radar]
Understandably there are now suicide fears for Bobbi. [TMZ]

When a noted figure dies the jokes follow almost immediately, but it's going to be "Too soon!" forever when it comes to making fun of Whitney Houston, according to Kathy Griffin – who frequently used her for material in the past.

I am a fan of so many people that I tease and bring up in my act. Whitney was certainly someone that I knew. I hosted awards shows that she was in. I went to her concerts. She didn't lip sync. She was just so awesome." [E!]
It's also too soon to be releasing Whitney's autopsy results, with police saying they are on a security hold. This is to stop magazines going nuts until the officials have time to investigate any shady goings-on. [E!]

A ridiculous scandal has broken out among the residents of Brooklyn's Park Slope, with shoppers at the neighbourhood's food co-op up in arms that their famous fellow co-oppers aren't pulling their weight. You see, to get access to the organic quinoa and kale you need to pull a 45-minute shift each month – but local rich folk including celebrities like Maggie Gyllenhaal have been accused of sending nannies, PAs and cleaning staff down on their behalf. Though Gyllenhaal's rep is telling wowsers to suck a bag of dicks because the actress has done shifts and generally works in the backroom to avoid stargazing chaos. "Who would go [on her behalf]?" she says. "She doesn't have anyone in her employ except me, and I don't do it." [Page Six]
