Woah, this is gonna be CRAZY!
The first ever estate-authorized documentary on Whitney Houston is in the works, with Kevin Macdonald at the helm set to direct.
Sure, it could be a pandering, soft-focus look at the singer’s life, but it could also be awesome and I’m choosing to believe it’s going to be awesome, what with the “unprecedented” levels of access he has to Whitney’s closest family and friends, alongside hours and hours of never before seen video from the singer’s life at every point.
Macdonald has already won an Oscar for his powerful terrorism documentary One Day In September, said of his motivation centering on Whitney in the project:
“The story that is never told about Whitney is just how brilliant she was as an artist; by many measures she had the greatest voice of the last 50 years. She changed the way pop music was sung — bringing it back full circle to its blues and gospel roots. She was also completely unique in being a black pop star who sold in countries where black artists don’t traditionally sell.”
Macdonald included more thoughts on what we should expect in the film:
“We have access to never-before-seen footage of Whitney that charts her whole life from her beginnings singing in her Church’s gospel choir to the day of her tragic death at the age of 48, and three decades of her music including exclusive demo recordings, rare performances and audio archive. Although we won’t shy away from the darker parts of Whitney’s life — her descent into addiction — I want audiences to walk out of the cinema and feel positive about Whitney and her music. I want to reveal a woman that even her most die-hard fans never knew; and a woman those new to her life and music will never forget.”
No date has been set yet for a release, but obvi, it’s going to be a huge deal. I just hope it’s done right!

Chyna‘s manager thinks he has the answer to the wrestler’s tragic death.
If you remember, last week was a week of tragic deaths, and while Chyna’s kinda got swept under the rug, it really shouldn’t have. She was a wrestling pioneer and though she was kind of down and out, Chyna had a pretty interesting life. Wednesday, manager Anthony Anzaldo gave a statement that said that he believes the pioneer wrestling star died of an accidental overdose of Ambien and Valium. She was 46:
“She accidentally and unintentionally misused her legally prescribed medication over the course of 2-3 weeks. It’s an epidemic,” manager Anthony Anzaldo said in an email.
The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner has not yet ruled on a cause of death. Coroner’s office Assistant Chief Ed Winter said full test results aren’t expected back for the next couple of months. “It is not closed,” Winter said of the case.
“It’s premature to give a cause of death on a case that the final tests are not in yet,” Winter said.
Anzaldo said Chyna died after falling asleep April 17 and that he found her at 3:30 p.m. April 20 after being unable to contact her.
“She fell asleep on Sunday night and peacefully took her last breath,” Anzaldo said. He said there were no alcohol or drugs, legal or illegal, at the scene.

All this sounds a little fishy- she was young and I feel like there had to be something else at play here.

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are OF COURSE going to cash in on their trainwreck of a relationship, ASAP if possible.
Several big-time TV producers told TMZ that they are hot and heavy courting the two “lovebirds” with ways to capitalize on, er, commemorate, their special day. The most moneyed and ridiculous one would be an episodic docusoap leading up to the big day, with a whopping $150k-$200k each per episode, plus another $500k each for the finale.
I’m sure Rob and Blac are CLAMORING for that kind of deal, because they love each other so much, er, I mean, yeah I think that’s what I mean let me check their instagram right quick.
So what’s in the way of solidifying these beloveds in holy wedded bliss? Kris Jenner, of course. She has the family, including Rob, under a blanket deal that gives E! first dibs at anything Kardashian. Kris has made it clear she’s not a fan of “Blac Rob,” so they’d really have to make a move out of the family.
Everything about this is disgusting and tasteless, so I guess personally I don’t really care what goes down, as long as I don’t hear about the sweet, sweet money involved. It’s depressing.
What do YOU think of these romantic wedding plans?

Sorry, Tyga. Blac Chyna doesn’t accept your congratulations.
In another turn of lame immaturity, Blac Chyna is privately calling BS on Tyga for pretending to be supportive of her engagement to Rob Kardashian…in actuality, she thinks that her ex is secretly NOT happy and also trying to destroy her life.
Sources directly connected to Chyna tell TMZ, Tyga is using all of his time (I mean, come on, he’s not doing much right now) to drive a wedge between their son, King Cairo, and her. He’s filed legal docs trying to take custody from Blac and seemingly won’t back down.
TMZ reports that Tyga will not even speak to Chyna…their only direct contact is email. AND he changed his cell and won’t give her the new number. On top of that, Tyga and his crew have been on a campaign to destroy her reputation, calling her a “drunk whore,” “deadbeat mama” and “nasty bitch.”
Most of the parenting decisions are made with their nanny as the go-between, which again, sounds like the actions of two people who have too much money and in all actuality probably are not capable of parenting.
Ugh. Someone take that baby away, please.
