Oh Whitney Houston, u gotta be pissed.
Looking down from heaven, did u simply fall asleep and drown? The doctors found cocaine and metabolites identified that were contributory to the death.
Marijuana, Alprazolam (Xanax), Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) and Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) were identified.
Could it have been a simple cold? Wake up feeling like crap so maybe take a cold medicine. But then the jitters set in. Interview in an hour, maybe a Xanax would take the edge off.
Finish the interview and someone passes a joint. Just one little puff, toke, hit, or whatever they call it nowadays.
Ummmm, feeling hungry? Break for a snack. Don’t want to eat too much, big party with Clive later. Munchies pass but the back pain is bothersome. Have to walk the walk and talk the talk in high heels. The pot has worn off. Take the prescribed Flexeril to relax the muscles.
Houston doesn’t know it but one of the side effects from Flexeril is swelling of the face or tongue. Did another interview, checked on daughter. Feeling tired, someone offers her coke. Half a line wouldn’t hurt. Would it?
Whoo hoo, Whitney’s feeling great and has to get ready for the big party. She pulls out her dress, turns TV on. Runs a nice bath in the posh Beverly Hills hotel with its oversized soaking tubs. Maybe grab a glass of champagne.
A little bath salt and oil added in for good measure, she takes a step, lies down in the warm bath and her mind wanders as her body over heats from the bath.
The background noise from the TV is cathartic. Just a little sleepy now. Maybe just rest the eyes for a few minutes. Resting, she slips under the water thinking about her daughter, her life, her music and sleeps with the love of God around her.
“For I will always love you.” RIP
You think this kind of shit only happens to the famous? You’d be wrong.
Plain and simple, drugs killed her and they can kill you. Get help. Someone loved her and someone loves you- and if they don’t, well then just love yourself. Oh, and opt for the shower instead of a bath.
