Bobbi Kristina probably isn’t going to make it

Every time I report on this story, I just keep wanting to say how sad it is. A little less than a week after Bobbi Kristina was found face down in a bathtub at her home, things aren’t looking very good and according to Fox 411, it’s simply a “matter of when” the Houston family is ready to let her go.

“It’s now a matter of when the family wants to let go and accept that she’s pretty much not going to make it,” a source closely connected to the situation told FOX411, adding that doctors have expressed that there is little they can do. “They’ve left it up to the family as to how long they want to keep her alive.”

It’s so tragic, really. While her condition had apparently been slightly improved earlier this week, the fact of the matter is that her brain was without oxygen for up to 8 minutes or something ridiculous, so even if she managed to survive, it’s pretty clear that she would probably never be able to function normally again, if at all.

People reports that the family is at Bobbi’s bedside paying their final respects:

“Everyone is coming to the hospital to say goodbye,” says a family member.

The news was especially devastating to her father, Bobby Brown. “Bobby has been crying nonstop since yesterday,” says the source. “We are grieving.”

A second family member went by the hospital overnight to say goodbye – and admits that the devastating news is hard to believe.

“If you saw her, you’d think she was just sleeping,” says the source.  But even with the bleakest prognosis, the family is still clinging to some hope. “It’s sinking in that this is it,” says the second family member, “but we’re all still praying that God will intervene and heal her body.”

Of course, she could still make a turnaround – there is always that hope. And after everything this family has been through, I can see why they would want to hold onto every last ounce of hope they can. I’m sure this is never what Whitney would have dreamed for herself and her daughter. Such a shame.

Bobbi Kristina was never married to Nick Gordon

Bobbi Kristina is currently in hospital fighting for her life, and her very serious condition is causing some discussion about just what will happen in case she doesn’t pull through. A lot of this discussion is surrounding Bobbi Kristina’s husband (and childhood surrogate brother) Nick Gordon, who everyone seems up in arms about since if Bobbi doesn’t survive this awful event, he theoretically stands to inherit a whole lot of money.

Turns out, that’s never going to happen, particularly because, uh… they were never actually married.

Despite the fact she announced to the world that she had wed Gordon last January and has since referred to him as her “incredible husband,” “Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon,” Bobby Brown’s lawyer says in a statement to PEOPLE.

Furthermore, from TMZ:

We’re told by Houston family sources … there are no legal documents that would allow Gordon to get any of the Whitney Houston fortune Bobbi Kristina inherited — if she passes.

Well, I guess that’s a relief? I’m not quite sure why they lied and said they were married or why they didn’t actually go ahead with any kind of ceremony, but I suppose one doesn’t need a piece of paper to document commitment. It’s all just very strange…

In other Bobbi Kristina news, it seems she’s been moved to a new hospital for further neurological treatment:

Family sources tell TMZ … Bobbi Kristina is at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, GA which is considered one of the top facilities for neurological problems. She’s was at North Fulton Hospital in Roswell, GA near her home where she was found face down in a bathtub Saturday.

It looks like the move could intensify a brewing feud between the families of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. We’re told the families are bickering over who gets access to the part of the hospital where Bobbi Kristina is receiving treatment.

As one source put it, “The Houston family is sick of the Brown family acting up, as they always do.”

This is just such a tragic situation all around, as I’ve said a hundred times already. I really hope Bobbi fights and gets through this.

Drugs found at Bobbi Kristina’s house as she fights for her life in hospital

bobbi kristina

After Bobbi Kristina was found face down in her bathtub over the weekend, she was rushed to hospital and put into a medically-induced coma to reduce brain swelling. While her family released a statement yesterday that Bobbi is “fighting for her life”, she is thought to be doing somewhat better and has opened and closed her eyes at least once – a positive sign to everyone holding vigil at her bedside.

While no one knows exactly what led to this tragedy, originally drugs and alcohol had been ruled out of the equation after an initial search by the police. However, perhaps unsurprisingly, it seems as though drugs did actually have something to do with it and authorities have actually taken several items from the house which the family have admitted are drug-related.

We’ve confirmed … over the weekend cops went back a second time to search the house. The first time they went they found nothing, but we’re told they went a second time and seized several items.

Cops will not confirm they found drugs, but family sources tell TMZ authorities told the family that is indeed what was found.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … they believed from the beginning Bobbi Kristina ended up face down in a bathtub as a result of drugs.

As for why cops didn’t find anything during the first search … we’re told they were only looking for items that were “out in the open.” Law enforcement tells us the second search was more thorough.

Again, this is hardly surprising – drugs have been a big part of Bobbi’s life for years. What remains to be seen is whether or not this was intentional, whether or not she can pull through and if she does, if she can finally get the help she so desperately needs to get her life somewhat back on track. Here’s hoping!

Bobbi Kristina is not in good shape, Bobby Brown releases statement

bobbi kristina bobby brown

Such a sad situation – as you know, Bobbi Kristina was found face down and unconscious in the bathtub of her Georgia home on Saturday and has since been placed in a medically-induced coma to help with brain swelling. Things aren’t going well, since according to TMZ, Bobbi Kristina is on a ventilator and doctors have said that her brain function is “alarmingly low” – meaning even if she does wake up, it’s not clear if she’ll be able to function to any degree.

Bobbi’s father, Bobby Brown, released a statement yesterday to US Weekly:

“Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time.”

I know I’ve already said it, but this whole thing is so, so sad. Bobbi Kristina never really stood a chance, did she? I mean, she grew up with two parents who were drug addicts (to the point that they allegedly did drugs around her) and allowed her to be involved in the self-destructive world of substance abuse from an early age. When Whitney died, I think it pushed Bobbi over the edge – they were incredibly close and I just don’t think she could cope.

I hope she makes a turnaround, but if this was intentional, I don’t think there’s anything to keep Bobbi from trying again. Really, really unfortunate all around.

Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina in a coma after being found unconscious in a bathtub

whitney houston bobbi kristina

Well, this is a terrible story. Bobbi Kristina, the 22-year-old daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobbi Brown, was found unconscious in the bathtub of her Georgia home early Friday morning. She was rushed to a local hospital and is said to be recovering, but it’s an eerily scary (and sad) situation.

From The Telegraph:

Bobbi Kristina Brown, 22, was found by her husband and a friend at her home in Georgia, USA, yesterday morning. The incident took place just two weeks before the third anniversary of her mother’s death, who died in a bathtub at a Los Angeles hotel.

A spokeswoman for the Roswell Police Department in Georgia said Mrs Brown was given cardiopulmonary resuscitation until rescuers arrived and added that the incident remained under investigation.

Doctors have now stabilised her breathing and she has been transferred to the intensive care unit of North Fulton Hospital.

Oh man, how terrible. It may just be a strange coincidence, but part of me feels like the bathtub aspect of this is just too much like Whitney’s death to ignore, and makes me wonder if this wasn’t intentional. It does feel somewhat inappropriate to speculate on whether or not this was a suicide attempt (or perhaps just an unintentional drug overdose), but either way, I think it’s pretty clear that Bobbi Kristina needs some help that she’s just not getting.

TMZ actually reported that Bobbi Kristina was placed in a medically induced coma yesterday afternoon for swelling of the brain, and Bobby Brown and Tyler Perry (I know, don’t ask) are at her bedside, so she’s still in serious trouble.

The Daily Beast did a great piece that’s worth reading; it examines Bobbi Kristina’s life in the years following Whitney’s death (and even while Whitney was alive) and when you look at the whole picture, it’s a really sad one. The question is, can you bounce back from the kind of life she has had to live a healthy, “normal” one yourself? This seems to be something Bobbi Kristina is struggling with, and I really hope she’s okay.

Bobbi Kristina at war with Angela Bassett over Whitney Houston biopic

bobbi kristina bobby brown

Lifetime is producing a Whitney Houston biopic later this year, with Yaya DaCosta in the title role and Angela Bassett in the director’s chair. That’s all fine and well – no one’s expecting it to be genius, but it’s a nice tribute to the late singer. The only person unhappy about this (instead of just apathetic) is Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, who is a bit put out that she wasn’t cast to portray her mother… despite the fact that she’s not even an actress.

Here’s what Angela said recently in an interview with Entertainment Weekly:

“I did not think about casting her. And probably for a number of reasons, you know. One being that she’s not an actress. I know she’s acted here and there. I know she’s been on their family’s reality show, but she’s not an actress and acting is a craft. It’s an attempt to illuminate the complexities of human behavior and life. And this is a very fast-paced schedule; we have just 21 days to tell this story. It’s more than just saying lines and turning the light on. You have to drive the story—there’s a technical aspect.”

Could that be seen as a diss? Eh, maybe, but she’s just speaking the truth. However, Bobbi got all up in arms and retaliated on Twitter, as you do, by claiming that she’s going to be an award-winning actress and calling Angela a man.

Oh God, grow the hell up, Bobbi. First of all, Angela Bassett has more talent in her pinky finger than Bobbi Kristina has in her entire body. And any talent she may have is completely overshadowed by the fact that she’s an insufferable brat. Between this and the antics of her brother/husband, the Houston family is really not doing Whitney’s memory and legacy any favours.

Does Bobbi Kristina have a weight problem?

Bobbi Kristina

Apparently people are all up in arms because Bobbi Kristina, daughter of the late great Whitney Houston, recently lost a bunch of weight. To be honest, I never noticed her being overweight, so the drama of this whole situation eludes me. However, it seems to be an issue since both Bobbi and her husband Nick, who happens to be recovering from a pretty serious ass beating, took to Twitter to defend her honour.

I must say, that Nick Gordon seems like an absolute class act. Seriously, the trash that dude talks… I can see why the Houston family had to lay the smackdown on him.
