Because no detail is too tawdry for TMZ, they’ve somehow obtained pictures of Whitney’s last meal: A hamburger, a turkey sandwich, a plate of jalapeño peppers, a can of Heineken, and a glass of champagne. She then apparently took the turkey sandwich and the jalapeños into the bathroom with her to eat in the tub (as you do). They note that in the second picture “If you look closely you can see water on the bathroom floor.”
TMZ also has pictures of Paul McCartney and his lovely wife Nancy laying flowers at the makeshift memorial for Whitney outside the Beverly Hilton. Which is sweet.
And finally, President Obama is praying for Bobby Kristina. White House press secretary Jay Carney spoke on the President’s behalf at a press briefing this morning. “I know that his thoughts and prayers are with her family, especially her daughter,” he told reporters. “It’s a tragedy to lose somebody so talented at such a young age.” And while he was not sure whether Obama had ever personally met Houston, Carney said, “I think it would be hard not to be an admirer of her immense talent.”
