Whitney Knows The Truth...
Pussycats, pussycats, they love you
June 8, 2004
'We are together. We love each other. I know me and I know the -- . They can
talk all they want and write all they want. I know the truth."
That was Whitney Houston out in L.A. last week, with hubby Bobby Brown,
filming an episode of their upcoming reality series, "Me and Bobby Brown."
The controversial pair took in a performance by the burlesque-styled
Pussycat Dolls at the Argyle Hotel.
Houston, in a white Dior D'Trick pantsuit, looked gorgeous, with a bit more
meat on her bones. She had clear, determined eyes. Whitney and Bobby were
enjoying the Pussycats at the invite of another reality show star, Sharon
Osbourne, who is no doubt giving the great singer tips on how to make the
series "real" but entertaining. (How could it not be entertaining with Bobby
and Whitney, neither of whom are reticent emotionally?)
As much as I despise reality shows (aside from the inherent stupidity,
there's nothing very "real" about them), I hope this one works out. I have
always liked Whitney. When I interviewed the star for Good Housekeeping some
years back, she couldn't have been more compelling, charming, real and
down-to-earth. I also like that she truly keeps her own counsel; she is a
feisty enigma. No matter what we think we know about her, she won't give it
up with a lot of self-confession. She's had her problems, but she has guts,
I would like to see this star back in the movies. I saw "The Bodyguard" on
TV the other night, and was she ever a knockout - a real presence!
ALSO ENJOYING THE PUSSYCATS - Lindsay Lohan, our favorite wee teenager.
Lohan was thrilled when Whitney looked over at her and pal Kelly Osbourne,
and said, "I love you girls!" Then, Whitney stepped aside to allow the
paparazzi to snap the younger women. "Whitney Houston knew who I was!!!"
Lindsay squealed. Of course.
Lohan left the party with Kelly. Danny Masterson and Wilmer Valderramacq/db
of "That 70's Show" were trailing behind. Rumor has it that Wilmer is Miss
Not that this column is saying it. We don't want to place Lindsay in harms
way by suggesting she's dating or anything like that. She's only 18, after
