Star sighting: Whitney Houston, Kelly Rowland

Whitney-HoustonWhitney Houston and Kelly Rowland popped up at the W hotel in Buckhead on Friday. They taped a piece in support of Brandy, who has been twirling her heart out on “Dancing With the Stars.”

We hear Whitney drove herself to the event and was in a relaxed, happy mood. She arrived behind the wheel of a red Corvette and was dressed in all black with a cute blue beret.

Earlier this year, of course, poor Whit came in for some razzing after her “Nothing But Love” tour limped through Brisbane, Australia. The reviews and YouTube videos that followed described a strange performance where she could not hit high notes and appeared disoriented.

Here’s a blog we wrote during that unfortunate period with more details.

But, that’s all in the past now.

We hear Whitney was very pleasant and not a “diva” at all at the event last week. She had just one request for the hotel staffers: A cup of coffee.

And you know her ex seems to be making his comeback too. Bobby Brown was the featured performer last month at a ribbon-cutting in Riverdale for a new town center. Here’s the blog we wrote about that.

We just love a happy ending.

So sad. She has one of the finest voices that God ever gifted any soul with. I hope she is FINALLY straight, but I doubt it. If she is driving herself, we, in Atlanta will just have to lookout. Please, please realize what is good in life and be high on that – then you can sing like a song bird again.

It’s “all in the past now”, yet you feel it worthy to regurgitate old news, really lame, very South!! Show u got access and prized connections in A-town and use the space allotted to you to drop–for once–what we don’t already know from well-networked, in-the-know bloggers.

Why was it necessary to remind us of the past? Simply comment on seeing her, how she looked, what she was here for!

Forgive and forget…Whitney is a great voice, made some bad decisions and so what ? who among us is without sin ? I hope Whitney continues her fine singing and wish her nothing but the best…She has paid her dues..

Dear Brin,

That’s a nice note to end on. I’m closing comments now after we had to remove a few offensive posts earlier.

Thanks!

Kelly Rowland? When was the last time she had a hit, IF EVER? I can see Whitney, she at least was relevant and talented at some point.

@joe camel: obviously you cared enough to read the story and write the comment. That actually shows you care a lot. You played yourself.

I wonder if some of you are as hard on yourselves as you are on other folks! Jeez! Oh but then it is easier to talk about others anyway, isn’t it!

Let’s be nice and let go of the past. Honestly, we all have done something in life that we are not pleased with, let’s be fair to one another. We all have our own vices that we deal with from day to day and God makes the final say so/judgement. Let’s start loving one another regardless of race, religion, gender or creed. Have a Safe and Blessed day!!!!

Whitney is back and she looks good, sure she came under fire for her performances in Aussie but Whitney had not opened her mouth to sing in 7 years, and you have to work those muscles just like any other muscle in your body, but I believe she is back now, she looking good, and her European tour was great!! Give the lady a damn break, we all go through trials, but she picked herself back up, dusted herself off and now she is ok!!!

Did she have papers served on her for the home default! This meeting with Ray J is for the public…in private Whit only has eyes (and legs) for girls!
