Not too long ago she finally decided to enter a rehab facility, and that lead to her filing for divorce from her husband of 14 years, Bobby Brown.
This past Saturday Houston made a surprise appearance at a charity benefit in Beverly Hills. And to say she looks amazing would be a colossal understatement. Besides being newly blonde, Houston looked happy, relaxed and fit. Her weight had fluctuated recently from being slim to being frighteningly thin.
She didn't sing at the benefit, but if her life is in as good a shape as she looks, then I hope we can look forward to new music from her and future performances.
I don't pretend to know the daily difficulties someone of her ilk suffers. I know that sometimes my life seems terribly out of order and I don't have a cadre of photographers recording my every move. I can't imagine how I would handle it. Not very well I'm sure.
Regardless of the reason, I hope Houston can take one day as it comes, and that those days will string together to form the resumption of a terrific life entertaining millions with that amazing voice that only Whitney Houston possesses.
