The Houstons: On Our Own

The 14- episode show on Lifetime channel has helped rather than hindered the  greiving process for the Houston family. The show opens with the family in their Atlanta, Georgia home days before the first Mother’s Day without Whitney and their first visit to her grave. The show includes some of Houston’s ballads from  her 2003 single On My Own.

Less than a year after the I Will Always Love You singer, Whitney Houston drowned accidentally in a hotel bath tub after taking cocaine. Houston’s Family; teen daughter, mother, brother and sister-in-law share with the world their struggle to cope in The Houstons: On Our Own.

“The show has kept the family close together, instead of isolated. We talk about things, we are very open, and we pay attention to the ones who need consoling the most. Doing the show certainly has helped in a huge way,” Pat Houston, Whitney’s manager and sister-in-law, told Reuters.

“There are preconceptions about the family that just aren’t true. We are a strong family, a working family, and a typical family. Our family member just happens to be an icon,” she added. “You will see a family that is grieving, that loves one another. You will see a family that is trying to move on.”

The series, debuted in the United States on 23rd Oct, sets the stage for a slew of November tributes to the troubled singer with the golden voice. Upcoming projects include an official glossy book of photos, a compilation album of Houston’s biggest hits that features a new duet version of I Look To You with R. Kelly, and the November 16 TV broadcast of a special Grammy tribute starring Jennifer Hudson, Usher and Celine Dion.

The British soul/singer Adele has given birth !!

Adele

 

Adele, singer of “rolling in the deep” and boyfriend Simon Konecki reportedly welcomed a baby boy on Friday night — but as of yet there’s no official word.

Adele’s publicist told Us Weekly and the Daily Mail, “We are not releasing a statement at this time, No comment.”

Now people, do you really believe that if Adele did not have her baby 2 days ago, her publicist would have responded, “No Comment?”

But a source close to the singer tells London’s Daily Mail, “Adele and Simon are ecstatic at their new arrival. She was over the moon that they were expecting their first child together.”

Relationship Recap

According to U.K. reports, the 24-year-old British muscian  and her charity worker partner Simon Knoecki  confirmed their baby news on  June 29th, 2012 when they published the following statement on Adele’s website:

“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me.”
Adele, 24, began dating 38-year-old Konecki; who heads clean-water charity Drop4Drop; late last year. The couple began dating in summer 2011 and moved in together earlier this year. The child is the first for Adele and Konecki’s second — he has a five-year-old daughter with ex-wife Clary Fisher.

Just last week People magazine ran a cover feature on the singer and detailed how she was keeping a low profile and expecting the baby any day now.

A source told People magazine that the couple plans to keep the child away from the spotlight and are in the process of renovating a four-bedroom home in Hove, about 55 miles outside of London on the south shore of England.

“Neither she nor Simon want to bring the baby up in London,” says the source. “She says it’s like a goldfish bowl.”

The singer recently released a new single, “Skyfall,” the new theme song from the upcoming 23rd James Bond film of the same name.

If you didn’t know that Adele was expecting……. now you know!  Adele gives birth to a baby boy!
