Houston Family Really? Selling Whitney’s Awards


 An auction of Whitney Houston’s memorabilia has earned more than $500,000 despite a judge blocking the sale of an Emmy Award won by the late singer.

Heritage Auctions says the top bid in Friday’s auction was $20,000 for a pair of Nike Air Jordan sneakers given to Houston by NBA great Michael Jordan. A Dolce & Gabbana fur coat worn by Houston on stage sold for more than $16,000.

The auction featured several costumes worn by Houston, as well gold records and other items the Grammy-winning singer accumulated before her death in 2012 at age 48.

A federal judge on Thursday blocked Heritage Auctions from selling Houston’s 1986 Emmy trophy, which she won for a Grammy performance. The company returned the trophy to Houston’s family.   Story: Associated Press

I’m sure there is a story ,the sale of her Emmy and gold records seems to be a slap in the face of her fans.  There are many Museums who would happily take her gold records and countless awards of this Internationally known Superstar.     Ouch!

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
