Rosie O’Donnell Says That Her Friend The Late Whitney Houston Was Gay

Actress and comedienne Rosie O’Donnell was on ‘Watch What Happens Live’ with Andy Cohen yesterday. On the show Cohen brought up an interview O’Donnell gave to ‘The New York Times’. Cohen said in the article you were quoted as saying” many of the people behind the scenes with Whitney Houston knew that she was gay.” Cohen said that O’Donnell brought up a relationship that the late singer was having with Robyn Crawford. Many people at the time of Houston’s life were told that Crawford was an old friend and was Houston’s assistant.

Cohen asked O’Donnell if she knew Crawford and Houston. O’Donnell said, “I didn’t know them as a couple per se, but I knew that they were together. I’m friends with very athletic older lesbian women who were in the WNBA. That’s the sort of the group all of these basketball playing women all hung out with. I knew that and I knew for a very long time. Everyone sort of knew it, it was no secret.” O’Donnell went on to say “I thought it was very surprising that Clive Davis said that he never discussed with her being gay. I just thought I don’t believe that for one minute.”
