I have to admit, I did not think this would happen. I can't believe someone within the Houston Family circle would sell Whitney out like this. The National Enquirer has published a photo of Whitney Houston in an open coffin on the cover of this week's issue. The unauthorized photo shows Whitney lying in a gold coffin and wearing a purple dress with matching eye shadow, lip gloss and jewelry worth a reported $500,000. The coffin had Whitney's nicknamed embroidered in the silk lining between two treble clef symbols. The headline read, "Whitney: The Last Photo." WARNING, GRAPHIC PHOTO











Out of respect for the family I've change the photo to a pixelated one. To see the un-edited photo, go to Sandrarose.com.

Millions tuned into Whitney's funeral on Saturday. CNN averaged about five million viewers between 12:15 to 3:45.

Whitney was found dead in the bathtub at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. She was laid to rest beside her father's grave at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield on Sunday (February 19th). She was 48.
