The health of Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, shook up ABC’s “The View” panel on Monday. Moderator Whoopi Goldberg and fellow co-host Nicolle Wallace, appeared shocked by the news that the 21-year-old is on a ventilator.
“This is a tough story to even start to talk about,” Goldberg said, folding her hands. “TMZ is saying the prognosis does not look good, and the family hasn’t made an official statement. I guess what we’re doing is letting you know there’s no more information than that, but we would be remiss if we didn’t mention it.”
Brown was found unconscious in a filled bathtub Saturday, after which doctors placed her in a medically induced coma at North Fulton Hospital in Georgia.
Brown’s situation is eerily similar to her mother’s death three years ago. The legendary songstress died after a drug overdose in a bathtub at the Los Angeles’ Beverly Hilton Hotel during the Grammy Awards weekend, TheWrap previously reported.
“And send our best wishes,” Wallace said.
“Definitely. Absolutely,” added guest co-host stylist Stacy London.
The panel continued their hot topics discussion with Super Bowl XLIX. Goldberg remained baffled as to why Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll turned running back Marshawn Lynch into a decoy, opting to throw the football with 20 seconds left in the final quarter.
“Super Bowl 49 is now in the record books. That last, Oh my god, the last minute. My head exploded. All they had to do was hand ‘The Beast’ the damn ball. What happened?” she exclaimed. New England Patriots’ cornerback Malcolm Butler intercepted the pass.
“You could have missed the whole thing and come in and sat down next to your husband and had the whole conversation today because nothing else mattered,” Wallace chimed in.
The panel, including guest co-host Cristela Alonzo, gave mixed reviews on singer Katy Perry’s halftime performance.
“She was a firework. She was a firework,” Alonzo said. “Missy [Elliott] killed it. Missy had a little Janet Jackson ‘Rhythm Nation’ going on.”
“I thought it was a Debbie Downer for a football game. I didn’t like it,” Wallace admitted about Perry’s performance.
