Whitney Houston Open Casket Photo Splashed Across National Enquirer
A photo of Whitney Houston in her open casket is on the front page of the National Enquirer. Understandably the family is outraged as millions of fans took to social media to voice their displeasure. Whigham Funeral Home vehemently denies accusations that they are the source of the leak and now fear for their safety.
CEO Carolyn Whigham says she is "horrified" by the accusations that her staff is to blame. I believe someone who atteneded the private viewing snapped the photo and sold it. I have seen the photo and, while Whitney looks very peaceful, the point of having a private viewing is so the public does not see Whitney in this fashion.
I am very disturbed that someone invited to this intimate gathering would look to capitalize on the pain of the Houston family.
