Hollywood Dirt: Photo of the Whitney Houston ‘Death tub’ and a Naked Lady Gaga Wrapped in Plastic + More
WHITNEY HOUSTON – THE LATEST: Although early reports suggested WHITNEY HOUSTON may have drowned in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel Saturday, TMZ reports that the coroner’s office has informed Whitney’s family that there wasn’t enough water in Whitney’s lungs to suggest she drowned. Instead it is believed Houston died from a combination of prescription drugs and alcohol.
2. Whitney’s body was released to her family yesterday and was transported to the East Coast on Tyler Perry’s private jet. That’s actually its name: “Tyler Perry’s Private Jet”. It took off from “Tyler Perry’s Private Runway” and is sitting in “Tyler Perry’s Private Hanger”. What, too soon? But it’s a Tyler Perry slam not a Whitney Houston slam!
So far there’s been no confirmation regarding funeral arrangements for Whitney, although TMZ claims it will happen in New Jersey later this week. Here’s a photo of the hearse carrying Houston’s body arriving at the New Jersey funeral home handling the arragements …
3. Photos of the room where Whitney died have leaked online and show remnants of her final meal. TMZ has also posted a photo of the “death tub” , which shows the tub stilled filled with water, and a gravy dish and towel at the bottom of the tub. (–Whitney typically filled the gravy dish with olive oil to keep her skin soft.)
4. Check out the chaos that went down at LAX after BOBBY BROWN landed there Sunday night to be with his daughter. Brown navigated the sea of photogs without uttering a word.

5. We asked yesterday if Bobby deserved all the blame he was getting on the internet for Whitney’s death, and here’s what you had to say.
