After a 15 year volatile marriage, Bobby Brown said good-bye to his ex-wife Whitney Houston with a bang leavinge storming out of her funeral before the service even started.
Brown was seen entering the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J. on Saturday along with many other high profile guests such as Stevie Wonder, R. Kelly, Kevin Costner, Rev. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. The difference is that Bobby was also spotted storming out of the building a few minutes later before the service had even started.
Rev. Jesse Jackson said that Brown and his entourage of “four or five people” seated themselves in the front row.They were asked to move, Jackson said, but there wasn’t room at the invitation-only service to seat them elsewhere. That’s when Bobby hit the road.
Although an official cause of death for Whitney Houston will not be announced until after toxicology reports are returned in a few weeks, it looks like Houston might have died after combining her anxiety medications with alcohol.
GaySocialites’ own Jonathan Warman will direct Nicole Pandolfo’s one-woman show, Love In The Time Of Chlamydia as part of the Frigid Festival from February 23 through March 4, 2012. It tells of one woman’s search for love in a world full of absent dads, dirtbag boyfriends, and premature ejaculators. “Once in the hot tub, we take the leftover vicodin Amber has from getting her wisdom teeth removed, wash it down with some Mad Dog 20/20, and pass a joint…” Nicole Pandolfo’s paean to the perils of sex and booze takes her from suburban Jersey basements to Manhattan barrooms, and from morning-after despair to chemically induced ecstasy on a funny, poignant, empowering journey of self-discovery. Love In The Time Of Chlamydia boldly goes there: awkward adolescence, flying bodily fluids, underage drinking – way underage. Aided by projections (and beer), this wickedly funny one-woman bender takes on frat boys, revenge fucking, venereal disease and Valentine’s Day with the comic insight of someone who knows…better.
