The music and entertainment world, and millions of fans tonight are mourning the loss of singer, Whitney Houston.   The Grammy winning legend was found dead this afternoon in her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where she was in town to appear at Clive Davis’s annual pre-Grammy party tonight.  Houston was 48.

Los Angeles police Lt. Mark Rosen told reporters outside the Beverly Hilton that Houston was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m. PST in her room on the fourth floor of the hotel. Her body remained there and Beverly Hills detectives were investigating. “There were no obvious signs of any criminal intent at this time,” Rosen said.  Houston’s life in recent years was ravaged by drug use, erratic behavior and a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown.  It has yet to be determined if drugs were in any way involved or the cause of  her death.

Sunday night is the Grammy Awards, and in light of the shocking death of Whitney Houston tonight, Jennifer Hudson and Chaka Kahn will perform some form of tribute to Houston on the live broadcast tomorrow on CBS.

Many of your favorite soap stars took to Twitter in the last several hours to tweet out their reactions.   Here are the thoughts they shared after the jump.

B&B’s Hunter Tylo: “So sad – Whitney – you will be missed.  God bless all her loved ones and be comforted at this difficult time.”

GH’s Jen Lilley:  “My prayers go out to the whole Houston family.  Whitney Houston will always be regarded as one of the of the greatest voices in history.”

ATWT’s Tamara Tunie:  “It’s a sad day and a great loss.  Peace be with you Whitney/”

DAYS Mark Hapka:  “Poor whitney Houston.  Found dead of a Bobby Brown overdose…and only 48. RIP”

Venice’s Crystal Chappell:  “God Bless Whitney Houston.

Y&Rs Michael Muhney:  “RIP Whitney Houston.  Your beautiful voice will live on forever.”

B&B’s Brandon Beemer:  “RIP Whitney Houston.  My heart goes out to her family and loved ones.  She was blessed with such an amazing talent.”

GL & OLTL’s Kim Zimmer:   “I can’t remember when the news of a rock stars death has effected me sooo much.. FUCK Bobby Brown and DRUGS.”

Y&R’s Daniel Goddard: “RIP Whitney… So sad”

Y&R’s Melissa Claire Egan:   “Nooo!  SO very sad about the death of Whitney Houston.  One of the first “tapes” I ever bought. The loss of a true talent.”

Y&R’s Joshua Morrow:  “Wow…Whitney…truly a god given talent…RIP mam you will be missed.”

We will continue to add more soap star reactions throughout the next 24 hours.  Now soapers, let us know what was your favorite song by Whitney Houston. We loved the dance smashes, “Love Will Save the Day” and “It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay” , but there were just so many amazing songs and performances by a true talent. And remember, Whitney appeared on As the World Turns when she was just starting out on the road to superdom!

    I love Whitney. I have performed her music and would only pray to reach the notes she reached during my Karaoke selections. Whitney was a BEAUTIFUL woman and she has left her a powerful mark on the world. Her smile (other than her voice) was ALSO a ray of sunshine. For those two things Whitney will be remembered most for, including her undying faith and candor. Her voice was a Treasure, none Greater!

    Kim Zimmer: Thanks for your candor and not being afraid to express it the way U did.

      Kim Zimmer’s statement was ugly and unnecessary. As were similar crass statements from soap actors, Bradford Anderson and Mark Hapka. They should be ashamed, particularly Zimmer who minimized her own alcoholism in her autobiography. The focus should be on remembering Whitney Houston and her legacy, not trashing Bobby Brown. Brown and Houston had been long divorced and he has seemed to have taken well to recovery, has a new wife and child. To blame Bobby Brown, who reportedly used alcohol to self-medicate a mental illness, for Whitney Houston’s life choices is wrong.

      Rest in peace Whitney Houston. She is my favorite singer of all time and gifted the world with her incredible talent. my favorite WH song is “Miracle” from her I’m Your Baby Tonight album.

        I think Kim is saying (and I could be wrong here) that Bobby should have supported Whitney, but chose not to. Instead he was an enabler. In that regard “FUCK Bobby” would be appropriate.


      February 18, 2012 at 8:53 pm

      I thought Kim Zimmer had more class then that, but I guess I was wrong.

    Very sad. I would have loved to see Whitney make a comeback and keep singing. Her last album was good. Whitney was ill with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease from smoking. It’s possible she died from a heart attack or stroke. She and her incredible voice will always be remembered and loved.

      Just because you agree with Kim, does not make her right, I thought she had more class then that, but I see I was wrong.

    This is such a waste of a tremendous talent! You could not get any bigger than Whitney Houston in the 80’s/90’s. After the tremendous hit of The Bodyguard, no one could maintain that level of success forever. It’s such a shame she chose Bobby Brown and dropped off the face of the earth career wise. She could have chosen a different path. This is so sad. I feel bad for her daughter losing her mother at 19.

    So Emotional
    I Will Always Love You
    How Will I Know

    But really, everytime the media plays a snippet of a Whitney Houston song, it was a major hit. So many songs that stand the test of time.

    RIP Whitney

    People, she hasn’t been dead 24 hours and the blame/rumors are already showing toward Bobby Brown.
    I am no fan of his, however, out of respect for Whitney and those of us who loved her music STOP bashing.

    We lost yet another talent legend way too soon.

      February 12, 2012 at 7:37 pm

      No one is Blasting! People on here are just expressing their opinions, and this is the forum to do so. No one has parents on here the last I checked. Whitney was a grown women who made her own choices, BUT it is no secret we are influenced by the company we keep. I’m sure U’ve heard the ole saying, ” Birds of a feather, flock together”. That’s all they are saying on here. It’s perfectly obvious, (and blame has nothing to do with it) that had she chose a different life partner, say perhaps with middle class values like where she came from-maybe her life would have taken a different path. Please STOP being so cynical, and you are HARSH along with it. This forum on here is for expressing our thoughts. Michael always writes his above capture by ending it with a request to: “let us know what you think”. We can disagree on here, but U must watch the tone in which you speak with people. Not Kool! Read my post about Susan Lucci in Gloria Estefan’s video, and how David, and Ethel disagreed about Susan. Then I wrote a compare (agreeing with them) and a contrast (providing other & opposite information). Then READ how BOTH David and Ethel looked at the situation with a totally different perspective. Deb, life is about being able to look at things from more than one point of reference. And the BEST is, BOTH Ethel and David were so HUMBLE about looking at it from a different view. There is no ‘ mean understone’ between us. Peace!

        There was a person if you read above, who referenced Bobby Brown. Though I am not a fan of his, lets all realize that Whitney was an adult. She made her own decisions. As a long time fan and admirer of Whitney’s, I think its shameful anyone would bash her when she hadn’t even been dead a day. Show some respect.

        pretty much said the same thing you are saying here,except I havent been pounced on yet,there is no way a healthy 48 year old woman is going to drown in a bathtub ,she was tall to,the only way that can happen is if you are drugged up to the point you pass out and as I said in another post ,you can forget to breathe ,she was not healthy, and I think she had C O P D on top of everything else ,so this will be interesting to find out what happened to her.I think she had to many doctors ,and no body was stopping her from walking into a doctors office,we will see when the truth comes out .and if all the rumors are true ,she did die because of legal drugs ,and that is a big problem in this the way did you hear what tony bennett had to say,what a ,Im not going to say it here.oh yeah and birds of a feather flock together,my grandmother use to say that ,god bless her ,she raised me ,and that saying makes sense and ,with whitney houstons problems,the last place she should have been was at the grammys ,and being around all those parties,thats bad for any addict.I heard that on thursday night she was plastered.ok, maybe I will get picked on now,for saying the truth.

      YES Deb: There was 2 people ABOVE who referenced Bobby Brown, but everyone didn’t agree with Kim Zimmer either. But there is NO ONE above who BASHED Whitney as you stated. I re-read all the post. There was 2 people who said it was SAD she didn’t take a different path, but there is no bashing there. You said, “Whitney was an adult she made her own decisions”, I stated above “Whitney was a grown women who made her own choices”, same thing. They are saying what we are saying ‘ just ‘ differently; they wish Whitney had chosen a different path. After all, she was an adult!
      The sentiments expressed above about Whitney were beautiful. There is no reference to any bizzare or out the ordinary behavior involving Whitney.

      February 13, 2012 at 8:24 pm

      Hi Deb: Did you read the page w/ Susan Lucci in Gloria Estefan’s video and the discussion that involved me, David, Ethel and Barbara. Here is a reply below that I just received. Pay close attention to the compliment given to me (at the end) about our unfair judgements and perceptions….
      ” Thanks for replying. You are right. The Erica Kane role has stereotyped Susan and not always for the best, but I hadn’t really thought about it until you pointed it’s out. Susan is a good performer and deserves a wider stage for her talent. I agree Susan could dazzle in a role other than Erica if given the chance. If we were all a little more fair and even-handed in our judgments (except when it comes to ABC canceling OLTL), the world would be a better place. ”

      Follow the coversation from the top of the post (it’s not long) Susan/Estefan post. They all had their opinions, they weren’t HARSH and we engaged in a discussion. It ENDED with them understanding my position. At the same time I understood where they were coming from in the beginning. You just read the compliment ABOVE given to me by David, more by Ethel and Barbara on the page. I don’t know how U could say something so stupid like me being in 2nd grade. Why do you resought in ATTACKS and then tell other people they are BASHING on here when this forum is for opionions, but certainly not ATTACKS! People on here compliment my post ALL the time, and I read your post and I dont read you getting compliments to what U speak about. I have made friends on here with people of all types and education backgrounds FAR different from mine. They look for my post and I look for theirs, so IF I corresponded like I was in 2nd grade, people wouldn’t look for my post or send me emails asking, “Where are you? “, OR compliment my thoughts and opionions, or be willing to change their position BC I have presented my case and the opposing view with plenty of facts and/ OR examples.
      Turn to that page via Susan in Estefan’s video, and follow the conversation from the top. The Respect fellow poster’s have for my views goes BOTH ways for them. I tried to cultivate that type of conversation and Respect with you, BUT you RESULTED in attacks, and when a person has to do that- that means they have already lost the discussion. Peace be with You!

      Wendy Williams had a great show yesterday. She spoke from the heart. She cried. She admitted herself to a past with drugs. When she got done saying her version of ‘good-bye’ to Whitney, she ended it with she is not going to discuss Whitney again on her show. Why can’t the rest of the shows follow her example?

      • barbara t

        February 14, 2012 at 8:40 am

        agree,I didnt see her show but our local news showed clips from it,she did speak from her heart,its sad the path that people take in the use of drugs ,and when you have a doctor who doesnt help the addict but writes out dangerous prescriptions ,bad things can happen ,as we are seeing once again ,I really wish whitney could have fought harder to get rid of her demons,its so sad .she was ,and is one of my favorite singers.

        Because they are in the business of making money, that’s why? Glad to hear that Wendy Williams isn’t discusssing it again, BC her show is nothing but gossip, gossip, gossip. I stumbled upon her show for the 1st time in 2010, and then again in 2011. All gossip! No wonder you and I have such a difference of opionions about things. U watch Wendy Williams. I watch CNN.

        The post is dated: February 10, 2012 under New Soap Buzz about:
        (Susan Lucci pops up in Gloria Estefan’s new music video for Hotel Nacional! )
        I didn’t ask you to look at any video, I asked you , I QUOTE: ” Turn to that page via Susan in Estefan’s video, and follow the conversation from the top.” Repeat. ABOUT Susan Lucci in Gloria Estefan’s video, and follow…..etc etc!!!! U don’t follow directions or is afraid to be wrong!

        “No I didn’t see any video, nor did I finish reading your post. When I realized you were trying to promote yourself for your ego, I lost interest.”

        No Deb, I just prefer to speak with people who aren’t Harsh and judgemental of other’s on this site. And just because they enjoy my post, which is me just being me., now I’m promoting myself, duh! Ok, well I’d rather promote intelligence, rather than ignorance. Certainly, U couldn’t stand to read anything where someone(s) is complimenting me, bc it would a conflicting difference of your opionion and might mean that your thinking isn’t normal. NOT being able to read the conversation we had about Lucci/ Estefan, is evident well, you know. God Bless You Deb. Peace! Let’s just have peace! No more of this!

I dvr her & Anderson & GH everyday while I have CNN on in the background. You see, I work for a living, not sit home all day to watch soaps, talk shows or game shows. Case closed.

        btw-how many times today did CNN talk about Whitney Houston? Did you count, or were you off coloring in the corner? Peace.

I have said that you are judgemental on other post as well. Obviously you dont remember what U read. Go above and read my responses to you, U will find my vocabulary that YOU are now using in your comment to abc, “harsh and judgement”. Find your own vocabulary, OR go back to school….! U sound jealous that U are not as intelligent. U use fowl language to express yourself ALL THE TIME, and is good for name calling. That’s what un-intelligent people do when they can’t hold their own in a conversation. PLEASE DONT REPOND OR TALK WITH ME AGAIN…. U are obviously an Unhappy and Miserable person. I dont respond back to you for days, but before a new day begins, U immediately respond back, BC you have nothing else to do but sit around and wait for a response to keep the madness going, by attacking people, judging people, talking about soap fans sitting home doing nothing with their time- and if that is the case, it’s their business. U are not a person worth speaking with. I wish U leave me alone, Stop waiting for a response.

      “Greatest Love Of All”

      I believe the children are our future
      Teach them well and let them lead the way
      Show them all the beauty they possess inside
      Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
      Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be
      Everybody searching for a hero
      People need someone to look up to
      I never found anyone to fulfill my needs
      A lonely place to be
      So I learned to depend on me

      I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone’s shadows
      If I fail, if I succeed
      At least I live as I believe
      No matter what they take from me
      They can’t take away my dignity
      Because the greatest love of all
      Is happening to me
      I found the greatest love of all
      Inside of me
      The greatest love of all
      Is easy to achieve
      Learning to love yourself
      It is the greatest love of all

      I believe the children are our future
      Teach them well and let them lead the way
      Show them all the beauty they possess inside
      Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
      Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be


      And if by chance, that special place
      That you’ve been dreaming of
      Leads you to a lonely place
      Find your strength in love

        I saw your post of the song when U posted it. I was otherwise involved on the site. But Thank you for taking the time to type those words out for those that don’t know the words, or heard the song. They are very significant words. I woke up to a tex from my cousin on Sunday she tex: ” Thank you for teaching me my 1st Whitney Houston song when I was 6 year’s old..” I have taught that song to all my cousins under me when they were young. The male cousins have teased over the year’s about me making them learn that song and sing it proudly. They have always said that’s one of their favorite songs. A former neighbor called me on Sat”d, and said, ” My daughter remembers U taught her that song at 6 years old. ” I been teaching little kids that song since I was a teenager, for obvious reasons…. Thank you for posting it.

    Last night at the Grammy’s when Jennifer sang “I will always love you” , I was struck at the double meaning of those words. This song with just a few different words could be a song about dying. I think this was definately Whitney’s best song, although she sang many many songs that I loved. The song itself has been around since the 60s when Dolly Parton wrote it and it was her signature song for many years. She sang it in such a pure and simple way. Then Whitney’s version was so powerful and different from the original, it seemed like two different experiences. Now I have a third. It is a goodbye letter to one of the greatest singers in the 20th century.
    One of my very favorite songs she sang was “I Love the Lord” I hope Whitney is standing at his thrown at this minute making that angelic music once again.

    Life is not perfect and I don’t know one person who hasn’t made a mistake or two, along the way. Whitney was a true talent, who I believe like everyone wanted love. Sometimes we take a wrong turn to find it (I am guilty there). Her mother and daughter will need love and support to see their way through this.

      You are hard pressed to find any news channel who isn’t talking about her.
      I have the news on all day while working, and no matter what channel you go to, its only a matter of time before her name comes up.
      If everyone loved her like they claim, why are they reporting this like breaking news still?? It isn’t news anymore. They are making a mockery out of her.

      I see that U have begun to post more positve comments, and even begun to be more complimeting to people. (Maybe you gave a few compliments to get some). I even see above that U are using some of MY terms I’ve reference to you” harsh and judemental ” in your comment to abc. I dont think most people on here sit at home and watch soaps all day (as you stated you don’t do) because otherwise, how would they be able to survive? Soap fans do some kind of work, even if its take care of home and raise their families, or they have worked and is retired. To say that U dont sit home, watch talk shows & games shows is judgemental and unfair to those that have put their time in working, is retired, or disabled. U just cant get over yourself with your judgements. I am an educator, and entertainment on weekends and Summer months. As an educator, I have to stay abreast on social, political, cultural issues and interest. That is why my views are well rounded, and not so isolated and judgemental. My profession takes me/ involves me with people of all ethnic groups and walks of life, so I must be able to see issue (s) from many sides and refrain from judgement unneccesarily.

        WTF are u talking about?? I would NEVER use any of your terms. I think you are an idiot. STOP POSTING to me.

        I compliment people who earn it. I haven’t seen that with your posts. Actually, I ignore your posts. I read a few posts awhile back, you contribute nothing. Now I don’t read them. Unless you are obsessed with me, STOP following me as well. Seriously. Peace.

      PS. Wendy Willams is far from a woman that most see as having Class! She use to meet the star’s on the red carpet and give them hell and ask them about the most embarrasing things she could think of. The fact that she chose to say her good-bye and say she isn’t going to speak of Whitney again is Dignified, BUT not classy! (You have a 2nd grade vocabulary). Wendy Williams created her image as a gossip, a trouble maker of soughts, making a spectacle of the star’s private embarrasing moments. That’s the image she is known for which SHE created, and made her living doing so. In fact, she didn’t begin to clean up her image until she got her television show, knowing that she would need some of the people she gossiped about, on it as Guest. Good that Wendy took the high road concerning Whitney, but I doubt with all the news coverage of the funeral and all, if Wendy Willams doesn’t mention it NEVER again. That remains to be seen, but won’t be seem by me. I’m busy watching and listening to more crediable news, or quality entertainment.
      The chapter cloese on Whitney today and tomorrow, and so does this conversation. Please donot respond. May your life be blessed with all that you hope for.
      Class Closed!

    No disrepect Micheal but I’m bit put off about the mention of Whitney Houston here.
    I mentioned John Lennon on his annversary of his death last year here and I got slammed so I dont see why shes mentioned.
    “Way off topic, lets think about people who are alive .” I got from someone.
    I wasnt going to this site at that time, was he mentioned then?
    I usually do stay on topic but shes then off topc if Lennon was.

    Whitney’s Funeral was beautiful. Guess no one is posting here since the death. There are no comments about her February 19th funeral on here. Last comment posted was on Feb 14th, and she died the Feb 11th. It’s a DisGrace that the National Enquirer posted that picture of Whitney. This world has just gone to the dogs. There is no respect for any ones privacy anymore. No matter the efforts you employ, or the plea’s asking for it.

    Now, Rest in Peace, dear Whitney.

OLTL Alum Renee Elise Goldsberry On Performing Her Showstopper “Satisfied” In ‘Hamilton’ Premiering On Disney+ Today

We loved her as Evangeline Williamson on One Life to Live, and the Broadway world loved her in her Tony Award-winning role as Angelica Schuyler in the musical Hamilton, which today bows on the filmed version on Disney+.  Of course, we are talking about the fabulous Renee Elise Goldsberry who has talent abounds.

In Hamilton, Goldsberry performs a showstopper “Satisfied” as Angelica makes the ultimate sacrifice giving up the man she loves Hamilton played by Lin-Manuel Miranda) to her sister for her sister, Eliza’s (Phillipa Soo) happiness.

Now taking the version of this memorable moment in the theatre and bringing it to life on film also makes for an exciting performance and piece of creative work.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times out today, Renee talks about executing this number in the show just right: “There are things that are technically challenging about that number: on top of the words, there’s the movement and the fact that we’re doing the previous number in reverse the whole time. It was a lot of things to juggle, but that was never hard, that was all intellectual. Even the rap was relatively easy. The most challenging part to sing is that final toast.This is an extremely well-written song. Every word is crafted to analytically take this woman on an emotional, life-altering decision for these three lives. That decision was such a monumentally painful and beautiful thing to do that by the time I’d get to that moment in which she makes that decision, I was so devastated that it was hard to sing that toast. She’s conflicted because, clearly, she wants to stay around this guy, she recognizes his brilliance, but she gets that Eliza is the one. So I imagine this woman having to give this toast to this community, in spite of the pain she felt.I was always worried that somehow or another, I wouldn’t be able to live up to the brilliance of the end of that song because emotionally, I was just trying to manage it. It took me maybe until Broadway to feel OK about it.”

When asked how she felt about seeing “Satisfied” in the movie version of Hamilton available everywhere Friday on Disney+, Goldsberry added: :Seeing it from the audience’s point of view for the first time, I realized there was a whole ‘nother level of storytelling that was going on, separate from me. I mean, Howell Binkley’s lighting design!  And Andy Blankenbuehler’s brilliant choreography, which I could always only see in my peripheral vision. It’s a huge number with the entire company onstage just killing it and basically turning back time with their bodies, and I’m standing in the middle, talking out like a deer in the headlights to the audience about a burst of things that I have to grapple with immediately. I’m very grateful that he made my job much easier.”

Watch a clip of Renee’s performance in the film version of Hamilton below.

Now, let us know if you are planning to watch the highly-anticipated Hamilton over the fourth of July weekend via the comment section and if you are excited to see Renee in her award-winning winning in it?

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.
