Mary Wilson

I met Mary Wilson (of The Supremes) and her date Mark Bego at Sunday’s Night Of 100 Stars Oscar Party as part of the 2012 Oscars festivities, and since Wilson’s a famous singer, I had to ask her about the passing of Whitney Houston. “You know, I’ve known Whitney and (her Mom) Cissy for so many years, and it’s such a tragedy. For a person to die so young.”

Mark Bego

As it turned out, with our encounter totally unplanned, Mr. Bego’s book on Whitney Houston is being released this week. It’s called Whitney Houston: The Spectacular Rise And Tragic Fall Of The Woman Who’s Voice Inspired A Generation.

That’s a mouthful. Not sure how I feel about a book on Ms. Houston’s fall, but Mark Bego’s got a good reputation for writing about pop-culture stars, having written over 50 books, so the work should be good.

Stay tuned.
