Stay away, Bobby B! Reportedly Whitney Houston entered rehab ten days ago, though the voluntary out-patient program allows Houston to come and go as she pleases. The surprising part about TMZ’s report on Houston’s trip to rehab this morning (the only surprising part), was that Whitney wasn’t seeking treatment because she allegedly, as Katt Williams so eloquently put it, smoked her knee caps off for twenty years. “She’s cleansing herself to get ready for a new movie,” a source claimed earlier today. However, Houston’s rep Jill Fritzo now confirms that Whitney is seeking treatment for drug and alcohol abuse, saying in a statement, “We can confirm that Whitney Houston is currently in an out-patient rehab program for drug and alcohol treatment. Whitney voluntarily entered the program to support her long-standing recovery process.”
We thought the original story was a little fishy; we certainly don’t know any high-end spas that require you to be accompanied by a monitor when you aren’t getting a seaweed wrap. Given Whitney’s canceled concerts in 2010 and allegations of Bobby Kristina’s drug use earlier this year, we support Whitney seeking treatment, or preparing for a movie, for as long as she needs. After all, we’ve been waiting this long for Waiting To Exhale 2; we can certainly wait ninety days more.
