Get into those bangs and big hair! Last week, Madame Tussauds revealed 4 different waxworks of the late Whitney Houston, which is the most the museum has created of one person in its 200-year-old history.
The figures, which were created in London and highlight standout moments from her triple decade career, will be distributed to select cities around the nation: Hollywood, New York City, Washington D.C. and Las Vegas.
The styling of the featured figure was inspired by Nippy in the music video for her hit “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)“ and was unveiled at the Sin City location on Monday (February 11).
Fish don’t fry in the kitchen, and Bobbi Kristina won’t get her first inheritance until two years from now. So, it’s reality television time to keep the cash rolling in for the Houston family.
A Lifetime original series, ‘The Houstons: On Our Own’ will beam onto the small screen October 24th at 9p/8c with Gary Houston making it clear to Krissi’s boo thang, “no one knew that from a God son you would turn into a boyfriend.”
So, the bootleg man has been busy. In the past, a star’s death has helped propelled box office returns but that wasn’t the case for Whitney Houston‘s final movie.
On its opening weekend ‘Sparkle’ took in an estimated $12 million at the box office, according to estimates provided by the film’s distributor. It opened on 2,244 screens, grossing $4.5 million on Friday and $200,00 less the following day.

Singer/actress Jordin Sparks will make her big screen debut this Friday in ‘Sparkle’, starring alongside the late Whitney Houston in her final starring role. For Sparks, working with the iconic singer was a dream come true but learning her death was an absolute nightmare.
“Whitney’s gone,” Sparks recalls. “I lost all feeling. I couldn’t move, I couldn’t say anything. I don’t think I was breathing. I still have moments where it hits me and it’s like, she;s not here. There’s this void.”
‘Sparkle’ casts Houston as mother of three singing daughters trying to make it in 1960′s Motown. Tika Sumpter and Carmen Ejogo round out the talented trio.
It’s been six months since her passing, but for her co-stars, Houston’s legacy lives on.
“Whitney seems like she’s one of the people to be real with, not ‘Hollywood.” Mike Epps told Celebuzz. “I would talk to her about real stuff, life.”
