See what we’re chatting about over a hot cup of coffee:
• Pat Houston was involved in a suicide scare yesterday. Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law posted a puzzling message on her Facebook wall that sent her friends and family into a tizzy. “Sometimes you just feel like giving up on life and its many challenges,” she wrote. “And for the first time in my life… I’m tired… and I want to finally rest. I love you guys.” According to TMZ, family and friends began to call Pat and didn’t receive an answer. Upon arriving to her Alpharetta, Georgia home, her family found her passed out with pill bottle next to her. They then called 911 and Pat explained that she had taken pain pills for her back and turned off her phone to sleep. Pat reportedly told all of those concerned that she was never suicidal. She was taken to a local hospital as a precaution and was later released. [TMZ]
