I have surprising news for you. Whitney Houston died from drugs. I know, right? I too put my hand over my mouth and gasped in shock. “Whaaa?,” I said to myself as I reread the story making sure I wasn’t seeing things.

An early report implied Whitney had drowned in her bathtub after slipping into unconsciousness. We now know there was not enough water in her lungs to conclude that she drowned. Instead, Whitney may have died from a combination of Xanax and other prescription drugs combined with alcohol. Radar is saying the other drugs may have been Lorazepam, Valium and a sleeping medication.

Sources say Whitney’s aunt, Mary Jones, found her body when she left for a half hour and Whitney didn’t come out of the bathroom. Mary went to check on Whitney, pulled her from the tub and began CPR.

Meanwhile, the annual Clive Davis Grammy party four floors below soldiered on. Ray J, who dated Houston, was seen distraught when he was denied access to the room to see her body but bounced back quickly and was photographed smiling alongside Jane Fonda and Britney Spears at the party. He’s so brave.
