Justice with Judge Jeanine covered Whitney Houston’s death and showed highlights from her memorial service. The Judge and her guests discussed the careless comments uttered by HLN’s Nancy Grace. Nancy has alleged Houston was murdered; that someone may have forced the singer under water in the bathtub. Judge Jeanine simply shook her head in disbelief. Police already said nothing of a suspicious nature was found. Officials are not calling this a homicide.
The Judge spoke about Whitney’s autopsy and why officials are waiting for the toxicology report. The coroner cannot give a complete report without all the information available. It will take weeks to get the results. Reports have been conflicting on how Whitney was doing the days up until her death. Her family insists she was doing better and was preparing for a come back this summer with the release of Sparkle, her final movie. I think people are making too much of how she looked leaving a nightclub. No one looks great after dancing and sweating all evening.
Judge Jeanine shared a statement from Bobby Brown regarding his leaving the service. He complained he was not allowed to see his daughter. In my opinion, Brown’s first thought was not for Bobbi Kristina the night Whitney died, choosing to go on stage rather than immediately fly home to his daughter, who was described as inconsolable. Reportedly bringing more than the two guests allowed to the service, Brown claims he was asked to move three times and finally just gave up and left.
I do not care how many times he was asked to move; he should have stayed. I think his ego got the best of him. That day was not about him. It’s reported that his children were devastated; Bobby only has himself to blame.
Later in the show, Judge Jeanine played some highlights from Whitney’s service earlier in the day, including Stevie Wonder singing and Kevin Costner speaking of his special connection with Whitney. The most poignant moment came when Whitney’s casket was carried out with “I Will Always Love You” playing in the background. Kevin Costner was correct; we didn’t just like Whitney, we loved her.
