Hollywood tour adds Houston death site as a stop

Given the level of interest in even the grittiest of details about Whitney Houston's death, it does make sense that some might view the locale where the star passed on as something they'd pay money to learn more about.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the Dearly Departed tour company has added the site of Houston's death at the Beverly Hilton to their Dearly Departed's Hollywood Tragical History tour.

"It is what we do," said owner Scott Michaels, who founded the tour company seven years ago. "And it's not far off our current route."

The two-and-a-half-hour narrated tour costs about $40 for adult admission, and covers the death sites of Michael Jackson, River Phoenix and Bela Lugosi. A tour guide breaks down the facts surrounding a star's death, and in the case of Houston, for example, the narration would include a note that the cause of death is pending toxicology results.

"To some people, there's just no defending" what his company does, Michaels told the Times. "But we're not jumping on any bandwagon. This is what we do."

    I know that GOD is flinching at some of his alleged, godly followers' beautiful' comments and degrading descriptions of one of his children. Did you so-called God-fearing folk ever hear anything or read anything about...let he that is WITHOUT sin, cast the first stone?? Which ones of you are WITHOUT sin?? Most humans are carnal in some area! What are you on? No pity for a 'crackhead' huh? The first thing is she was not a crackcrackead. Secondndly what kind of head are you? The Almighty God had pity and still has pity on all of us that's why he sent His only begotten Son into the world to give us all a better chance at being 'saved'! Who are you not to have pity on anyone? Do you have a Heaven or a Hell to put anyone in?? Did you have any idea that the word is mightier than the sword, and that it's not always what goes into your mouth that can hurt you and your loved ones, but what comes ouut? Did you know that the ditches that you dig for someone else, almost always you trip up and fall into them?? Did you know the power of life or death is in the tongue? You never know how you or your children will be leaving up out of this world, so SHUT YOUR EVIL JUFGEMENTAL MOUTHS! At least let the womans body get cold and her family can put her in the ground! My goodness!!

    i have no pity on crackheads!
    It is what it is, and she is gone. She may had a problem with drugs however no one ask for your pity. Who are we to judge that is for GOD. Pity no but it is a sad event. She had a voice and she was beauiful . When the good Lord call on you, you must go. Maybe it was her time to go. You called her a crackhead , so what that makes you ?
    RIP Whitney

    I never realized just how gorgeous Whitney was until these last few days. She was a beauty with an unbelievable voice to match. So sad she couldn't stay on course. A shame... Dont think I've ever heard a more beautiful voice, Celine Dion comes close.

      Hi Audley!I'm your first comment on your blog! And yes, I would never take you as a Tango dencar. You're more of the karate, weight lifting, tree climbing while juggling a chain-saw type!
