- This coming December, VH1 Divas will honor the late Whitney Houston. In an event that's usually marked with diva antics with good spirit, this year's yet-to-be named Divas will sing Houston's greatest hits. Houston's musical director Rickey Minor will executive produce the show. The "I Will Always Love You" singer performed on Divas in 1999, 2002 and 2003. "We all felt that if any show could pay tribute to Whitney's music, it would be Divas," said VH1 president Tom Calderone. [That Grape Juice]
