"In 007 talks: Houston, Whitney Houston"
Rumors have been circulating for some time that Whitney Houston will co-star with Pierce Brosnan in the next as-yet-untitled James Bond film. Houston moved closer to that becoming a reality when MGM and Bond producer Barbara Broccoli scheduled a meeting with her in Los Angeles for yesterday. I was cautioned, however, that the meeting also involved other movie projects.
In the meantime, Houston had been considering appearing in St Louis at Sunday's NCAA women's basketball final between Notre Dame and Purdue. I understand that she and her mother, Cissy Houston, were going to sing backup for Whitney's brother, Gary Houston, on the National Anthem. When the entire Houston idea was scrubbed, the Supremes" Mary Wilson did the honors.
As it turns out, the Midwest wouldn't have worked for Houston anyway, since she was waiting in L.A. for her Monday meeting with MGM. Yesterday morning, MGM pushed Houston's meeting back to tomorrow.
So typical in Hollywood. Let's hope she doesn't give up her day job.
