“Whitney, I love you baby. It’s not like that. Calm down, you’re causing a scene.”

You guys remember the “old” mom from this year’s X-Factor, Stacy Francis, don’t you? Here’s a refresher if you didn’t:

Right. That’s her. Anyway, it turns out that she and Whitney had kind of gotten into it in the days before Whitney’s death, and eyewitnesses say that it actually got physical at one point:

“She [Whitney] ran over to them [Ray J and Stacy Francis] and began screaming, ‘This is my man! I’m a cougar! B*tch, get away from my man,’” a source told us. Ray J tried to calm her down, telling Houston that Francis was a “longtime family friend” but Houston still pointed and screamed.

“The other artists in the area tried to surround them so that people wouldn’t begin coming into the area where they were and taking photos or video,” the source explained.

Francis tried to calm Houston down, too. “Whitney, I love you baby. It’s not like that. Calm down, you’re causing a scene,” she pleaded. Houston then shoved Francis in her forehead and Francis shoved her back.

“The other singers had to jump in and separate them. People were pleading for Whitney to chill out. It was embarrassing,” the source disclosed.

My God. She shoved Whitney Houston. Back. Can you imagine? After Houston was found dead, however, Stacy Francis found a whole bunch of remorse somewhere in the back of her closet and sent a message out on her Twitter, saying how deeply she regretted getting into the altercation with the late singer:

This is a sad time for me. I loved Whitney Houston with all my heart. She was such an amazing musical influence for me.

I deeply regret the events that led to Thursday’s misunderstanding, but I respect and love her more than I can say.

At this painful time, I would like to express my support and most sincere condolences to Whitney’s family in learning of her sudden death. I will always remember her to be a deeply humane person and wish her spirit to rest in peace.

Wow. I’m still stuck on shoving Whitney Houston. Who shoves Whitney Houston? That either takes some serious balls or some serious stupidity or, you know, just some serious trash. I’m not saying that Whitney was blameless in the spat, because I don’t think that just because someone’s dead that they should be canonized and all of their bad behavior in their lives go away, but damn. Is this how things normally go down behind the scenes between the “new” fame and the “old” fame?

The same eyewitnesses claim that the incident happened the same night that Whitney was spotted leaving a club intoxicated, photographed with blood running down her leg. What a mess. It’s no wonder Whitney looked as pissed off as she did that night.

Did You Guys Watch the X-Factor Last Night?

*Waving my arm around excitedly* Ooh, I did, I did! And I loved it! It had all of the fun that a once-loved show by the name of American Idol use to have, and I’m pleased and happy to say that I’ve found a new talent-scouting show to take its place. My life feels complete again, guys. Plus, the talent was amazing. Way more amazing than the that showcased on the first few episodes of Idol. I mean, did you see Stacy Francis, the 42-year-old mom? Holy Jesus, I almost fell off the bed. The bitch had me in tears.

And then there was, of course, the crazy, scary man dressed in some kind of weird track suit who exposed his decidedly floppy penis and made Paula (oh yes, PAULA ABDUL, friends) run to the toilet for a vom sesh.

Then there was Chris Rene, the last act of the night, who performed something called ‘Young Homie,’ and when I heard that he’d be singing something called ‘Young Homie,’ something that he wrote, I just about gagged. But I caught myself in judging before it was time, and listened anyway (not like I was going to shut the damn show off in the last ten minutes). And this guy? THIS GUY? Man. I’m not even going to spoil the guy’s story for you, because it’s pretty good, so I recommend you just watch the video, and the entire video at that.

Man. Right? RIGHT? Damn. He’s got me going all over again. I’ve got to go and take some Tylenol and wipe my eyes. I am a damn BASKET CASE today.

What stuck out to you guys as way memorable? Aside from Simon’s crazy-creepy puffer fish eyes, of course. Did you watch it? If so, what did you think? And more importantly, will you be tuning in again tonight?
