WHITNEY HOUSTON 911 CALL RELEASED
The 911 call made moments after Whitney Houston died in February was released to the public yesterday.
In the call, a Beverly Hilton hotel security guard tells the operator that an "irate" woman, possibly Whitney's assistant, called security but "kept hanging up" before they could get the whole story. The caller said, "Apparently I've got a 46-year-old female found in the bathroom. That's all I've got right now, but they're requesting paramedics."
Also yesterday, the LAPD announced that they've concluded their investigation into the singer's death and have determined that it did not involve foul play.
An autopsy determined the cause of death to be accidental drowning.
Meanwhile, Radar Online has obtained a video allegedly showing Whitney's daughter Bobbi Kristina smoking marijuana from a three-foot-tall bong.

ALICIA SILVERSTONE DEFENDS FEEDING HER SON LIKE A BIRD
Alicia Silverstone doesn't think there's anything wrong with feeding her 11-month-old son Bear Blu like a bird.
At a screening of her upcoming film Vamps in Brooklyn, New York, Alicia told reporters, "People have been feeding their kids that way for thousands of years. It's a weaning process. He attacks my mouth and I think it's adorable... It makes me laugh every time he does it."
The actress says she didn't intend to "cause such a ruckus" when she posted the personal video on her website.
SCREENWRITER: MEL GIBSON HATES JEWS
Legendary screenwriter Joe Eszterhas has accused Mel Gibson of "hating Jews" and threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Gregorieva.
In a nine-page letter to the actor, Joe writes that Mel never intended to make The Maccabees, a movie about Jewish heroism, because he is anti-Semitic. The Wrap reports that Warner Bros. has put the controversial project on hold and rejected Joe's script.
He also claims that Mel was "raving" at Oksana even after reaching a custody agreement over their daughter. Joe writes, "And then you were even more explicit about your threat: 'I'm going to kill her! I'm going to have her killed!' You said you'd become friends with two FBI agents (or former FBI agents) and they were going to help you to kill her."
Mel denies the claims and says the real issue is that Joe's script was terrible.
BETTY WHITE'S TWITTER A PRANK?
Is that really Betty White on Twitter?
Yesterday the 90-year-old started tweeting, sending a flirty message to Ryan Seacrest. But soon after, her Hot in Cleveland co-star Valerie Bertinelli wrote, "Just spoke with Betty and she is VERY upset! @BettyMWhite is NOT her. Don't know how they got verified, but it is not Betty." Then, a little while later, Valerie posted a retraction, saying, "It's all a misunderstanding. @BettyMWhite IS Betty's twitter account! I think @BettyMWhite pranked me but good! #blushing."
Perhaps it was part of Betty's new prank show Off Their Rockers.
