Fantastic Boston Public News !!! ... not !!

Whitney Houston Gives 'Public' Performance
Thu, Apr 17, 2003 11:16 AM PDT

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - One of America's biggest pop stars will join a potential future pop star on the season finale of "Boston Public."

Whitney Houston will take her first acting role in several years when she guest-stars as herself on the FOX series. A Winslow High student writes her a 10-page letter asking if she'll be his prom date, and to everyone's surprise, she accepts.

Houston will also work with former "American Idol" finalist Tamyra Gray, who's wrapping up her recurring role as the shy but talented student Aisha. She's set to sing at the prom, but when she hears Houston -- her idol -- will be there, she gets stage fright.

Houston does her best to help Aisha get over her nerves, giving an unplanned performance of "Try It on My Own," her latest single.

A six-time Grammy winner, Houston has sold more than 120 million albums in her career. Her acting credits include "The Bodyguard," "Waiting to Exhale" and, most recently, ABC's 1997 musical "Cinderella."

The "Boston Public" season finale is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET Monday, May 12.


OK so I guess this is another good reason not to watch this show.....

I stopped watching this show midway through this season. Doesn't seem like I'm missing much.

Personally, I'd watch if she played the role of the "Smell this shoe" lady.

If it's Whitney Houston, wouldn't it be, "SNIFF THAT COKE!"

She (the actress, not the lady) got a job in a pilot for CBS, I think. And it's a DEK show.

Cleo King (the "smell this shoe" woman) has been cast in David E. Kelley's CBS pilot, The Brotherhood of Poland, New Hampshire.

[Though, this is probably the final nail...]
