Whitney Houston’s Items For Auction

If you’ve always wanted a Whitney Houston dress and/or jewellery, you may be in luck if you’re willing to pay a few thousand dollars.

According to The Huffington Post, Whitney Houston’s black velvet dress and a pair of earrings she wore in The Bodyguard will be up for auction next month, and will be included with the likes of Charlton Heston’s staff from The Ten Commandments, Clark Gable’s jacket from Gone With The Wind and Charlie Chaplin’s cane.

Whitney Houston’s pieces will be auctioned off by celebrity auctioneer Darren Julien, who cites these items as “an investment.” As for whether he thinks it’s in poor taste to begin auctioning off Whitney Houston’s belongings so soon after her death? Julien doesn’t believe so.

“It’s a celebration of her life,” he said. “If you hide these things in fear that you’re going to offend someone – her life is to be celebrated. These items . . . become a part of history. They should be in museums. She’s lived a life and had a career that nobody else has ever had.”

You can say that again. But regardless of how timeless these pieces may be, it still seems too soon to begin profiting off of Whitney Houston’s passing. Especially since the dress is expected to earn a couple thousand dollars.

Here’s hoping that despite the temptation to pocket the money, the profit from Whitney Houston’s pieces go to a charity or a better cause.
