If we had to sit down and figure out the most disgusting aspect of the weeks following Whitney Houston’s death, the fact that someone took and sold a picture of her in her casket would have to top the list.
While the National Enquirer should be in the hot seat for paying for and publishing such a disrespectful photo, the Houston family and the general public have wondered who would even take that picture in the first place, even for all the money in the world. It’s now being reported that not only has Cissy Houston found out who did it, but she is asking that they use this opportunity to do a good deed. From the Chicago Sun-times:
According to a source close to Cissy Houston, Whitney’s grieving mom now knows who sold that photo to the National Enquirer. The Houston family insider said Cissy “had a come-to-Jesus moment” with the guilty party and demanded the alleged six-figure fee for the photo be donated to charity.
The Nosy Nelly in all of us probably want to know who took that photo so that we can side-eye the life out of them, but Cissy is too much of a class act to blow their spot so we may never find out. Kudos to Cissy for handling such a sad situation with kindness.
