Courtney Love has gone on the attack after a new e-book, Courtney Comes Clean, charged that her hoarding habits were responsible for the death of her daughter Frances Bean Cobain's cat. And, as usual, she's doing her lashing out via Twitter in her famous nonsensical style. The cat killing allegations arose during the time that Frances was obtaining a restraining order against her, and the e-book relied on some of the documents presented in support of the order. They included details about the hoarding and also a story about how her presecription pills—which she was allegedly addicted to at the time—were scattered around and ended up killing Courtney's dog. Good god. No more pets for Courtney.
Ms. Love has started tweeting out against anyone she thinks is responsible for leaking the documents and also in an attempt to defend herself. She totally denies the cat dying in a pile of her hoarded fabric and garbage: "I'm a kitty killer! Who puts such an unjudged piece of trash in a madman's hands?" Oops, @Cbabymichelle, I think you meant to use a "?" after "I'm a kitty killer," but we get where you're going, sort of. She also insists the cat, which she says belonged to her and not Frances, was killed by a mountain lion who wandered down from the Hollywood Hills: "It was a mountain lion that killed Peabody!!" A likely story. Either way, poor, poor Peabody. [The Fix]
Whitney Houston's body is back home in New Jersey, after being driven from the airport in a smooth gold limo. And now the details about her funeral are falling into place. The previously reported giant public memorial will not be held after all, but there will be a private funeral at the New Hope Baptist church in Newark. It can hold up to 1,500 people, and you can bet spots on that guest list are going to be coveted mightily. One person who may not be on that list? Whitney's ex-husband Bobby Brown. One source says her family does not want him there and will turn him away if he shows up. But another source says the family understands he needs to be there to support his daughter with Whitney, Bobbi Kristina. [OMG!, Extra TV]
