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…

Brittany Murphy’s Cause Of Death – Pneumonia

Brittany Murphy's Cause Of Death - Pneumonia

I’m a big Brittany Murphy fan, and was shocked to hear about her sudden and tragic death. Now, we find out fromĀ  the Los Angeles County coroner’s office that her death was accidental. It seems that Brittany Murphy died from pneumonia, but anemia and prescription drugs also played a role in her death.

According to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office. The primary cause of death was community-acquired pneumonia, with contributing factors of iron deficiency anemia and “multiple drug intoxication.”

Poor Brittany died Dec. 20 at age 32 after collapsing at her Hollywood Hills home. Her mother and husband have said the actress didn’t abuse prescription medications or have an eating disorder.

Details about the drugs the “Clueless” and “8 Mile” star had in her system will be released in several weeks when a complete report is done. LA Coroner’s spokesman Craig Harvey declined to detail what types of drugs were involved but said they “were all prescription medications” which could have been perscribed to her, or not.

Pneumonia seems to fit, because both Murphy’s husband (Simon Monjack), and mother (Sharon Murphy), told investigators the actress had been experiencing flu-like symptoms in the days before she died.

Simon Monjack told The Associated Press last month that his wife did take several prescriptions, including an anti-seizure drug, but did not abuse the medications.

Whatever … to take a line from Clueless. It will not bring this great talent back, bless her and her family.
