Bill O’Reilly says Whitney Houston wanted to kill herself

While talking about Whitney Houston’s history with drug and alcohol abuse on his Fox TV series The O’Reilly Factor this week, commentator Bill O’Reilly stated, “Whitney Houston wanted to kill herself.” He added, “Nobody takes drugs for that long if they want to stay on the planet. She follows in the footsteps of Elvis, Janis Joplin, Michael Jackson and scores of other entertainment figures. The hard truth is that some people will always want to destroy themselves, and there’s nothing society can do about it.” However, he said Whitney had plenty of help on her downward spiral, criticizing the doctor who prescribed the medication, claiming he “had to know she was a drug addict. Everybody knew that.” He called Whitney’s death “awful” and said she was in his prayers.

    Of course she wanted to kill herself. Why else would you throw away sucha successful career on drugs.

    As much as people loved Whitney…she was equally reviled.

    All she stands for now is drug use. People that miss her are just as sick and twisted.

    We might as well skip the autopsy report and just label her death a suicide cause thats totally what it was

    Why has nobody piloted a plane into Bill O’Reilly yet? Bill O’Reilly is the scourge of the earth.

    What Whitney’s intentions were when she climbed into that bathtub no one will ever truly know…..Was it suicide….did her heart give out from past drug use…or did a sedative cause her to fall asleep and drown by accident…..whatever the cause….the result is the tragic loss of one beautiful and talented young lady……The only part that would give her family peace….Whitney knew the Lord and is now in His care…..Rest well Whit.

    God gave Whitney unparalled beauty, grace, and talent, and Whitney said “Crack is whack, but I’ll take triple of what everyone else is having!”

    Its a very sad day to lose such a Goddess of Song but worst to lose it because of drugs.

    It’s even sadder that Whitney never stopped using drugs when she had her daughter. To expose that world to her daughter and now never having the chance to see her daughter grow up and see her life develop. That alone should have been motivation enough to stop using drugs.

    That was 100% wrong. She should have been able to see her Mother soon after she died!!

    Really smart killahkyle comment. As usual you miss the point completely by wishing harm to another person. I am sick and tired of the cowardly comments, say something meaningful and I may listen.

    I hate Bill OReilly almost as much as his network, but even I have to admit he made a decent point.

    Whitney was a beautiful,talented, and obviously very unhappy person. It is such a shame when drugs can take away your respect, beauty, family and life the way it does. Drugs are a sickness,and Whitney needed help. The thing is I don’t think Whitneys only problem was drugs I believe it was Bobby Brown. You put Bobby and drugs together that means danger. Whitney needed help, and when it comes to success, making money and pride, in the music industry that seems to comes first.

    Bill O’Reilly thinks that he has to make a pronouncement on everything in the news. Nobody, but hard-core, extreme Right Wing Republicans, pay any attention to his rant and raves, anyway. Fox News, #1 Smear Artist!!!
    By the way…I wonder, if Mr. O’Reilly prays to the same God, as I do? Somehow, I doubt that very much.

    Once again you prove your ignorance.

    In my opinion Whitney Huston had one of the most powerful, beautiful voices in North America. I loved her singing and watching her sing. I met her Mother also many years ago at a concert where her Mom sang. It seems that the combination of drugs and Bobby Brown did not do well for her. I don’t blame it all on Bobby Brown though, Whitney should have reached out for help sooner…a part of her was searching for help but probrably thought she had to uphold a certain image. It was slow suicide. So anyone out there now reading this if you also feel depressed, down or feeling regret; know that things CAN change and will change. In God all things are possible. Whitney started in the church, grew away from it but I hope God receives her with open arms. She is unfortunately following in the steps of other famous people who find out that money and fame are not enough.

    Trevor is quite correct. If God was truly looking after Whitney (if there is a God), then He would not have allowed this to hap[pen. So He doesn’t exist or He was not paying attention. Or He is not as omnipotent ans the Jesus freaks believe. Take your pick.
    I mourn the loss of any talent so young. No need to bring God into it.
