The photo of Whitney Houston in casket has opened a controversial can of questions, one of them being ‘why was the photo taken in the first place?” The National Enquirer has said that the photo was taken at the Whigham Funeral Home in New Jersey (in other words, prior to Houston’s funeral at the New Hope Baptist Church), the funeral home director insists that is not the case. The funeral home owner Carolyn Whigham, has told reporters “I am very angry, very upset, just like the family, just like the fans,” she said of the Enquirer photo. “We don’t like it because it implicates us. Whitney was a personal friend to me and my family. We would not do that.”
A few peopel are not upset, the National Enquirer’s publisher Mary Beth Wright being one of them. She called the photo ‘beautiful’. Houston, who died at age 48 the day before this year’s Grammy Awards, was buried in a private ceremony on Sunday.
