Whatever life throws at Whitney Houston (or, frankly, what Whitney throws at herself), we’ve always have faith that she’ll make it through. Sadly, Whitney Houston’s emphysema diagnosis is just the latest obstacle the beleaguered diva now has to deal with. “She’s developed emphysema — and her doctors are warning her she’ll die a horrible death,” a friend of Houston’s allegedly told the National Enquirer regarding her recent diagnosis with the lung disease. If the rumor is true, it might also help explain the string of Whitney Houston concerts canceled in April due to illness, and perhaps even those concerts canceled last year. Whitney Houston’s rehab stint began at the beginning of May, and was aimed at treating her drug and alcohol addiction. Hopefully it will aid her in her medical recovery, too; doctors are allegedly requiring Whitney to kick her smoking habit completely. We are warning people now: we will straight up rip the seats out of the movie theater if we have to see a Whitney-less Waiting To Exhale 2. Some things we simply cannot abide.
