Glee is dedicating their Valentine’s Day episode to Whitney Houston tomorrow night, according to E! Online. Although the show was shot before the singer’s death, the producers felt it appropriate because the episode features Mercedes (played by Amber Riley) singing Whitney’s iconic hit, “I Will Always Love You.”
Coincidentally, Amber met Whitney for the first time on Thursday night, the same night the troubled singer seemed like she was on a bender at an LA nightclub. “I didn’t need her to take a picture with me. I didn’t need an autograph,” she says. “The fact that she even acknowledged that I was standing there was enough for me.”
On another tragic note, Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, 18, was hospitalized for anxiety attacks twice in 12 hours following the shock of her mother’s untimely death. Her father, Bobby Brown, 43, skipped a New Edition reunion concert in Nashville to be by his ailing daughter’s side. “Obviously the death of her mother is affecting her. However, we will get through this tragedy as a family,” Bobby tells Extra.
