The Greatest Comeback Of All

January 9th, 2007 // Leave a Comment

A USA Today/Gallup Poll conducted over the weekend revealed that Americans are most highly anticipating Whitney Houston’s comeback, over those of Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson and Tom Cruise. USA Today reports:

Twice as many people expressed support for the comeback of the star of the reality show Being Bobby Brown over fellow singers-turned-reality-TV-stars Britney Spears (Britney & Kevin: Chaotic) and Jessica Simpson (Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica). Of the 1,004 adults polled, 32% hoped Tom Cruise would have a comeback this year.

More than 40% of respondents want the singer, who has been in and out of drug rehab, to shine again. In October, music producer Clive Davis reintroduced Houston, who is seeking a divorce from husband Brown, to Beverly Hills high society at the Carousel of Hope charity ball.

But do they realize that a comeback means saying goodbye to Crazy Whitney? And I’m sorry, but I’ve kind of grown fond of that gal. In a perfect world, I could have it all–the sweat, wigs askew and “black love”–as well as the dance remix of her newest version of “It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay.”
