Since the passing of her Mother, Whitney Houston on February 11, 2012 it is said that 18 year old Bobbi Kristina, daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobbi Brown is out of control on drugs.
I read these articles and see these headlines and I am angry, disgusted and frustrated. Why? Let's forget for a moment that she is a celebrity and look at the facts. She grew up in a dysfunctional household, more often than not being the parent for her parents. She witnessed drug abuse and domestic violence first hand. She became an adult before she was ready.
This is an eighteen year old girl who lost her Mother/best friend, suddenly without any warning. Of course she is out of control. I lost my Mother at 38 and I was out of control, for months. Not to mention, she is constantly in the spotlight, being hounded by the media with tabloid disgust being spewed all over the airwaves and internet. How is she supposed to handle all of this.
She has already been to the hospital twice within 24 hours of Whitney dying and how was it handled? They gave her a sedative. I'm sorry but sedatives do not address the problem. HER MOTHER DIED!!! She needs a caring family member or someone who understands what she is going through and can give her the comfort she needs. Granted, while rehab will help with the drug problem, that will not help the underlying cause which is insurmountable grief right now. There must be someone who can help her.
I have so much fear over this entire situation. I don't want to get online some morning only to read breaking headlines about this girl. Someone needs to take control and help her. If I knew how to get in touch with her myself I would. No, I can't address the drugs but I could help with the underlying problem and anyone who has lost a loved one could do the same.
I hate pointing fingers and blaming anyone, especially within her family but I think right now, caring about Bobbi Kristina is much more important than selling the funeral video and auctioning off Whitney's dresses.
I know for those of you that read this blog you expect flowers and niceties but this situation hit me hard and something needs to be done.
I don't really have two questions this week but rather want everyone to share your opinions.
