Whitney Houston died in her bathtub at age 48, and her tragic death may have been caused from and accidental combination of Xanax and alcohol

Whitney Houston died on Saturday at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Ca., the night before the Emmys at which she was going to attend.

She is survived by her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown who she had from her former husband Bobby Brown.

TMZ reported that Whitney’s aunt, Mary Jones discovered Whitney Houston’s body in the bathtub. Mary had laid out Whitney’s dress for the evening on the bed and then left for about a half hour. When Whitney didn’t come out of the bathroom, Mary entered, pulled Whitney out of the tub and began administering CPR.

So sad, and a tragic lose for her family and music fans around the world.

L.A. County Coroner officials told the family that Whitney Houston did not die from drowning, but rather from what appears to be a combination of Xanax and other prescription drugs mixed with alcohol.

The autopsy of Whitney Houston is complete, but the results will be deferred pending a toxicology report, which typically takes 4-6 weeks.

A coroner’s spokesman says the results are on a security hold, which just means nothing is being released at this time.

Although the cause of death is unknown, it is increasingly looking like Whitney may have fallen asleep or lapsed into unconsciousness in the bathtub and drowned.

Coroner officials informed the family there was not enough water in Whitney’s lungs to lead to the conclusion that she drowned, but obviously being under water did not help the situation.

Whitney’s mom has arranged to have the singer’s body flown back to Atlanta, as early as the day after the Emmys, and the family was told the Coroner has no problem releasing the body because there is no evidence of foul play.

This whole event is like her best songs… So Emotional… and I Will Always Love You… and Didn’t We Almost Have It All…

I am sure LILO really feels bad that she got caught lifting a necklace from a swank LA store, but everyone owed her something for her fame. Right? I mean totally, she’s a total A-list class act celeb, like you know?!

Well, a judge Los Angeles Superior Court Judge (Stephanie Sautner) thought the actress had intentionally taken the $2,500 necklace and shown poor judgment in not trying to return it until police became involved.

The judge initially reduced the actress’ charge from felony grand theft to a lesser misdemeanor charge and imposed the 120-day sentence.

Now that was a break for LILO – I am sure if your 24 year old friend from east LA would get the same break, right?

The best part of the sentence was that Judge Sautner hoped to give the “Mean Girls” and “Freaky Friday” star a dose of perspective by sentencing her to almost 500 hours of community service, including time at the county morgue and 300 hours at a women’s shelter in downtown LA.

LILO helping poor people? Eeeeeyyyyeewwwwww!!! They smell!!!

Well, the stupid bitch got her lawyer Shawn Holley to file a notice of appeal right before court closed, clearing the way for the actress’ release on bail.

April,23 2011, after 18 hours in jail, LILO was freed at 9:21 p.m. after posting $75,000 bail, according to the sheriff department’s website.

Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers also said her office would consider appealing the ruling as well. Low friends in high places?

She could afford $75,000 bail, but not a $2,500 necklace? WTF!!!

It is my opinion, that LILO needs to do some hard jail time. 120 day minimum. She needs to clean toilets, be lonely, get off of drugs and most of all she needs to be someone’s bitch.

Then 300 hours in the downtown LA women’s shelter will help put her life in perspective, and maybe she might become a better person.

Right?

James Bond’s Thunderball and Goldfinger Aston Martin DB5 Sells for $4.6 Million

James Bond’s Thunderball and Goldfinger Aston Martin DB5 Sells for $4.6 Million

James Bond’s Thunderball and Goldfinger Aston Martin DB5 Sells for $4.6 Million

It comes with a list of standard features like (also see photos further down):

  • Machine guns
  • Bullet-proof shield
  • Revolving number plates
  • Tracking device
  • Removable roof panel
  • Oil slick sprayer
  • Nail spreader
  • Smoke screen

It is one of the most beautiful and prized colletor cars in standard trim, but what makes this 1964 Aston Martin DB5 special, is that it is the James Bond film car from the hit movies “Goldfinger” and “Thunderball.”

The car is said to have been one of two used for driving scenes in the movies with the actor Sean Connery behind the wheel as Bond.

Four were built in total, but two were mules (non-working) used for promotional purposes.

The other car used in the films was reported stolen from a Boca Raton airport hangar in 1997 and has not been seen since.

The cars and all thier gadgets are the brainchild of late special effects maestro John Stears, who won an Oscar for his work on “Thunderball” in 1966. He also worked on the special effects in “Star Wars” and “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.”

The car sold on Thursday was reportedly bought by its seller, Jerry Lee, a Philadelphia radio station owner, for $12,000 in 1969.

At the RM Auctions Automobiles of London sale, Ohio collector Harry Yeaggy brought home the top prize James Bond film car from “Goldfinger” and “Thunderball.” The car sold for £2,600,000. With the addition of auction fees, the final figure is expected to be over $4,600,00.

The car is said to have been one of two used for driving scenes in the movies with the actor Sean Connery behind the wheel as Bond.

Despite being close to half a century old, the DB5 only has 30,000 miles on the clock. The seller Jerry Lee said he has only driven the car once: “I drove it for two blocks in London. I think it’s a work of art,” he said. “It’s just pure beauty.”

Lee said he will put the proceeds from the sale towards the Jerry Lee Foundation, which he founded in 2007 to reduce crime.

Site Alert!!!! — TelOnU.com

TelOnU.com is one of the best company research, job, layoff, school research and celebrity sites I have ever been on.

I don’t normally rave about a site, but I was doing research on some companies and I ended up on telonu.com with one of them. Then I looked around the site and realized it is a really valuable tool for people doing research about companies and people, as well as job seekers and those being abused at a job.

Basically, Telonu.com is kinda of like yelp.com – but focused on companies, people, teachers, schools, product, politicians and celebrities.

Say you are looking for a job, and you have an interview at IBM. Well if you go to telonu.com and search on IBM, then you will be taken to the IBM page:

http://www.telonu.com/reviews/ibm

There you will find posts by employees, former employees, suppliers, etc. – all talking about there experiences with the company. These posts are called “Tell’s”, and you can also signup and post your own ‘tell’, and even start a section on a company or person if it doesn’t already exist.

Really cool!!

The teachers and school section is also very interesting, since the tell’s are from students and parents about various schools and teachers. If you were moving and wanted to find a good school, then telonu.com could be very valuable indeed.

The other part of the site that is really cool, is that it tracks the various layoff that are occurring at companies. If a layoff is happening at your company, you can post it in the layoff section so other can be aware of it.

All of the tells are anonymous, so employees at a company can post without fear of reprisals from their bosses.

Telonu.com also has a fun celebrity and politicians section with some of the funniest tell’s and gossip. Great place to take a break from job and company research.

Brittany Murphy husband, Simon Monjack found dead in same Hollywood house – only 5 months later – now things are getting strange…

Brittany Murphy husband, Simon Monjack found dead in same Hollywood house – only 5 months later – now things are getting strange.

Brittany Murphy husband, Simon Monjack found dead in same Hollywood house – only 5 months later – now things are getting strange.

British screenwriter, and husband of Brittany Murphy – Simon Monjack was found dead Sunday (June 23, 2010) night at his Rising Glen Road mansion in the Hollywood hills.

Monjack, 39, was pronounced dead after the Los Angeles Fire Department was called at 9:40 p.m. to the home for a medical emergency. Brittany’s mother, Sharon Murphy, reportedly lived in the home with Monjack, and according to a CNN report, it was Sharon who found the unconscious Monjack in his bedroom and called for help on Sunday night.

Brittany Murphy, 32, Simons Murphy, his wife of less than three years, died five months ago in December from a combination of pneumonia, an iron deficiency and multiple drug intoxication, a coroner said. The drugs involved were legal and used to treat a respiratory infection, according to an autopsy. See my blog report on it:

https://pusz4frog.wordpress.com/2010/02/04/brittany-murphys-cause-of-death-pneumonia/

Now Brittany’s husband Simon Monjack is dead, too. And, yet again, reports have surfaced that there were significant amounts of prescription medications in the house. “We’re not sure if it is natural causes or a possible accident, maybe because of the prescription medication found there,” Ed Winter, the assistant chief coroner in L.A., told People magazine on Monday.
“We concluded there no signs of foul play or any criminal activity involved,” Sgt. Alex Ortiz, another police spokesman, told the AP.

A Monjack family spokesman, meanwhile, told the magazine that Simon was due for a heart bypass operation in the near future. “I don’t believe he had an overdose,” the spokesman said. “If you have a heart condition, you’re going to have prescription medication for yourself. You’re going to be on some kind of medicine.”

At the time of his death, Monjack, a Brit, was known in Hollywood as a sometime director, with a history of messy romantic entanglements, bad debt, and other legal trouble.
Monjack was outspoken about his grief following Murphy’s December death. He described how he had lost his “best friend and soul mate” as the “Clueless” and “Girl, Interrupted” star was laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park on Christmas Eve.

Celebrity drug addicts, and those who supply them with drugs, have all sorts of ways to try and convince people that they are sober individuals, with no connections to illicit substances. Simon’s death is now amid a torrent of speculation that he and his deceased wife Brittany Murphy had had problems with cocaine and prescription medications.

When his wife died in December, there were pill bottles lying all around the house. But Monjack had explanations: She was hypoglycemic; he had heart problems and survived oral cancer.

However the Murphy’s died – the fact is that both are now dead. A tragic end to a wonderful actress and her husband, both who died way to early in their lives.

For me, it is still a question whether these deaths are just another sad Hollywood drug related death story, or just a strange set of co-incidents…

The 82nd annual Oscars – 2010 : The year of The Hurt Locker and female director Kathryn Bigelow

The 82nd Oscars 2010 : the hurt Locker wins big.

The 82nd Oscars 2010 : the hurt Locker wins big.

The show, kinda boring, but well organized and Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin delivered their can jokes with as much enthusiasm as could be expected under the circumstances.

Personally, all the films I wanted to win – didn’t.

I didn’t see Hurt Locker, even though I wanted to, it left the theaters before I could get around to it.

Still, The Hurt Locker which only earned just $21 million worldwide (Avatar has earned $2.6 billion so faR), won 6 Oscars: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Editing, Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing

The Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow made history by becoming the first woman to win the directing prize. The bonus prize was that she kick her ex-husbands ass (James Cameron). Presenter Barbra Streisand opened the envelope and said, “Well, the time has come!” as a loud standing ovation and lots of shrieks greeted Bigelow when she came up on stage. Way to go girl!!!

I will say that Avatar got what it should have: three Oscars, for cinematography, visual effects and art direction.

I really loved that Sandra Bullock won best actress for her role as a forceful mother who brings a homeless teen into her well-off family in “The Blind Side.” I thought it was a great film, still think District 9 should have won Best Picture though.

Sandra Bullock started her speech with a few jokes, paying tribute to her “lover, Meryl Streep” and asking, “Did I really earn this or did I just wear you all down?”  It was sweet though when her voice cracked with emotion as she dedicated her award to “the moms that take care of the babies and the children, no matter where they come from,”.

Jeff Bridges won the best actor Oscar for his performance as an alcohol-soaked country singer in “Crazy Heart.” – but we all know he should have won it long ago for the ‘Dude” in the Big Lebosky.

I like that he said “Thank you Mom and Dad for turning me on to such a groovy profession. … They loved showbiz so much, and I feel like an extension of them. This is as much for them as it is for me.” Bridges’ father was Lloyd Bridges, star of the TV show “Sea Hunt” and many movies, and his mother was actress Dorothy Bridges.

So, overall it was good TV, and several new people got Oscars bringing new blood into the scene.

PS3 XCM Chrome Case Mod – Star Wars Princess Amidala’s spaceship for your living room

XCM Cyberchrome case makes your PlayStation 3 look like Princess Amidala's ship in the first Star Wars prequal

Now I prefer PC Gaming to console gaming, not that I spend 12 weeks locked in a basement playing Quake 4, but I do game once a week.

I have been thinking of getting a new game console, but Wii, X-box or PS3 has been the question.

Well, I saw this XCM Cyberchrome case makes your PlayStation 3 look like Princess Amidala’s ship in the first Star Wars prequal:

J-type 327 Nubian royal starship

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/J-type_327_Nubian_royal_starship

Now I love the J-type 327, but I don’t know if spending $70 on and already $300 PS3 really is worth it, but damn if looks hot!!

Now, it is cool that the game geeks who do get this, will actually be able to see themselves in it – pale, pasty and with bloodshot rat eyes – and maybe decide to come up for air between 40 hour on-line slog fests and see if the real world still exists.

Note: We did not receive any product or money to post this article.
