Oh Rosie back in the headlines. Does this even matter anymore?! The only reason why I’m sharing this story is because I love Whitney Houston so I was curious. Plus we are celebrating 25 years of The Bodyguard and there’s lots of positive things to talk about there.
Rosie O’Donell was a guest on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, where the comedian addressed those rumors of Whitney being gay. Watch Rosie’s comments below. She claims that Whitney was in a romantic relationship with her longtime assistant Robyn Crawford.
“I didn’t know them as a couple per se, but I knew that they were together,” she said.
“I’m friends with a lot of very athletic, older lesbian women who are in the WNBA. And that’s sort of the group [they hung out with], all of these basketball-playing women. So I knew that, and I knew it for a very long time.”
