Houston was found dead in the bathtub of her room at the Beverly Hilton hotel. While reporting live from Los Angeles, Grace appeared on CNN shortly after and said she wanted to know, “who let [Whitney Houston] slip, or pushed her, underneath that water?” She added, “Apparently, no signs of force or trauma to the body. Who let Whitney Houston go under her water?”
After Barbara Walters read Grace’s quote, Grace replied, “That’s why we have autopsies, to determine one of three things: did someone die of natural causes, accident, or foul play?”
Joy Behar chimed in, asking Grace, “But did it ever occur to you that implying someone murdered the woman would put the family into a tizzy?”
Grace refused to back down. Watch below.
