Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Whitney Houston has been offered a spot to take the place of vacating judges, Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger. The legendary pop diva is said to be considering an offer.
Whitney was spotted at a pre-Grammy bash on Thursday, hosted by singer Kelly Price at TRU Hollywood, where she reportedly clashed with X Factor contestant, Stacy Francis The 48-year-old diva is also expected to appear at Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy party on Saturday.
Even off drugs, Whitney strikes me as still pretty cray cray. If she’s supposed to bring an element of unpredictability to the panel, then I suppose she’s the right choice. I can’t imagine her as a level-headed mentor of hopefuls. Maybe she’ll surprise me.
On the other hand, this report could just be Simon trying to get some buzz going for his show.
