Profiting off Whitney's death.. part II

The other day we wrote how CBS, Sony Records and Apple's iTunes sought to financially profit from Whitney Houston's death..

She passed away last Saturday.  Her funeral is this coming Saturday.

And in between, another vulture-- a scummy real estate broker who is putting her New Jersey based home is up for sale at a price of $1.75 million.

From the ad:

“With the recent passing of Whitney Houston in Beverly Hills, Calif., the day before the 2012 Grammy Awards show, it is with a heavy heart that we remind you of this great mansion. Whitney contacted us directly a few years ago about selling her house and even though she had it listed with various agents in New Jersey, we have kept the word out for her to car collectors, enthusiasts and the entertainment world...

"This house was also the scene of the activity that brought down this incredible musical diva over a 15-year cycle. The mansion was also used in the filming of a 2005 reality show in which she and her ex-husband appeared at the pinnacle of Whitney Houston’s fall from musical power and grace.  With all of this incredible star studded history, if you owned this house you would always have these incredible stories to go with it. A great conversation piece for anyone.”

That ad is not made up by the way...

I am not a Whitney Houston 'fan'- great voice but her music was not my cup of tea.   Nonetheless, every person who passes away deserves some semblance of dignity..
