Whitney Houston Is Back In Rehab
Rehab has become the resort de jour for the leafy set and the refuge of the affluent. Talk shit about someone and the media crucifies you? Go to rehab. Break up with your boyfriend and go on a public tirade? Go to rehab. Exhausted from all your shit-faced partying? Go to rehab.
Well, it’s 2011 and Whitney Houston is back—in rehab. Her struggle with dependency has overshadowed her career for the last decade—from rumors of her drug use, to a 2000 marijuana arrest in Hawaii to that all too infamous interview with Diana Sawyer when the “You Give Good Love” singer proclaimed “crack is whack” which, as a phrase, is way better than “give a hoot, don’t pollute.” But I digress.
Whitney first entered rehab, of her own accord, back in 2004, only to check out five days later. She returned to rehab in 2005. While many of us would love to blame her demise on her tumultuous marriage to bad boy Bobby Brown, they’ve long since been divorced and her struggle continues. Whitney, we wish you all the best. Just to inspire you we’ve included a before and after video. Guess which Whitney we all miss?
