    No details? After the Paterno fiasco, I would think the press would have learned. No location, no cause? Sounds fishy.

      TMZ has more details including location. Not much is being said now. I would say it is true given that Houston's rep. is confirming it.

      AGuest9 sometimes details come out later. Doesn't mean that you withhold the news. Paterno is still dead, btw.

    i just read a statement put out that whitney was spoken to by her publicist, Nancy Seltzer, and she said she was alive and well and with her family.. i am so shocked by this news i do not see how this was started as a rumor and now become true.. i really hope this is all true. because i do not see someone putting on another news sight that this is just a rumor and now it is told to be the truth..
