With love you don't mislead or play around, so if you're not perfectly clear, just be honest about it."

    Reports say that Bobbi Kristina Brown's preliminary autopsy results show no obvious signs of foul play. According to TMZ, the Fulton County Medical Examiner said that the autopsy shows "no obvious underlying cause of death" and "no significant injuries were noted."

    There was also no previously unknown medical condition that could have rendered Bobbi Kristina unconscious in the bathtub, where she was found submerged in water on January 31st. The medical examiner has subpoenaed medical records to determine if drug testing after the accident was relevant. Nick Gordon has claimed that both he and Bobbi Kristina had been doing drugs and she took too much. The Medical Examiner says he will not determine a cause of death until he reviews the records.

    • Bobbi Kristina's dad Bobby Brown released a statement to E! News yesterday (July 27th) on Bobbi's death, saying, "Krissy was and is an angel. I am completely numb at this time. My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honor her memory. Our loss is unimaginable. We thank everyone for the prayers for Krissy and our family as we mourn my baby girl."
    • His lawyer added, "Yesterday Bobbi Kristina Brown took her place in heaven. Krissy fought to get well for months. However, she has succumbed to her injuries."


    Meanwhile, although the autopsy doesn't show any obvious signs of foul play, Bobbi Kristina's death has officially been ruled a homicide. According to TMZ, law enforcement sources say that the D.A. and the cops are treating her death as foul play and Gordon continues to be a person of interest. Gordon is also still being sued for being abusive toward Bobbi and taking money from her bank account while she was in a coma.


    In related news, reports say that Gordon is on suicide watch after the death of Bobbi Kristina. According to The New York Daily News, sources say that Gordon is "out of control" and his friends are fearing that he may take his own life. Gordon's mom Michele told NBC News in a statement that her son is devastated and "has suffered greatly" these past several months.

    • She said, "The passing of Bobbi Kristina is devastating to Nick and our family. Nick loved and cared for Krissi deeply, and he has suffered greatly each and every day they've been apart. Nick and our family are in mourning, and we ask that you respect our privacy. Our thoughts and prayers are with both the Houstons and the Browns during this difficult time."


    Entertainment Tonight has reported that Bobbi Kristina's funeral will be on Thursday (July 30th) in Atlanta and the family said that they will make it a celebration of her life and "the Sweet 16 she never had." Tyler Perry is assisting with the arrangements. She will be buried next to her mother Whitney in New Jersey.

    Meanwhile, Pat and Gary Houston revealed what Bobbi's last moments were like. She was surrounded by her family, who quoted Bible verses, including Psalms 23's "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want." Bobbi Kristina passed at 8:17 pm EST, while the group was chanting "Hallelujah."

    • Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in her bathtub on January 31st. She was placed in a medically induced coma soon after and was transferred to hospice care in June. Whitney Houston was found dead in a bathtub just three years earlier.

    RAVEN-SYMONE THINKS CAITLYN JENNER IS MOVING TOO FAST: The ladies of The View discussed the premiere of I Am Cait on Monday's (July 27th) show where Raven-Symone questioned Caitlyn Jenner's fast rise in the ranks as an LGBT advocate. She said, "I appreciate all she's going to do for the community. I think it's wonderful. I'm just surprised at how many girlfriends she has all of a sudden, and how much she's showing these stories of transgender youths all of a sudden. I think it needs a light being shined on it. It's just a lot for me in one show, and you just came out. I mean, when I came out, I didn't go and go hardcore and be like, 'I'm going to save the world for LGBT.' You got to learn first." The co-hosts also addressed how "stunning" Caitlyn looks to which Raven said, "It's amazing what you can look like with a lot of money, but I do have to say there's a commercial coming up for the next episode and how a lot of the transgender community is coming and saying 'All of us can't look as good as you.' We'll see the dynamic as it grows, but I just want a little bit more slower progression."

    RAMONA SINGER SAYS HER EX IS DEAD TO HER: Ramona Singer has been promoting her new book, Life on the Ramona Coaster, and recently chatted with People about the end of her marriage from Mario. She explained, "I think once I became a 'celebrity'...and I was in the public eye -- I think that bothered him. There would be moments where he would be very warm and loving, and then other moments that he was really vicious and mean, and would bully me. It was like, 'who are you?' It was scary, it was very scary. I don't recognize who he is today. That's the only way I can heal with it, because when he's across from me, he's not the man that he was two years ago. He completely changed." When asked how she views him now, she responded, "dead."

    The New York Daily News put a photo of Bill Cosby on the cover of Monday's (July 27th) paper along with the headline "America's rapist." The story addresses the new issue of New York magazine which features 35 of his accusers on the cover and an essay by Noreen Malone about the alleged victims.

    Noreen writes, "More has changed in the past few years for women who allege rape than in all the decades since the women's movement began." The magazine's website also published individual stories from the women who have come forward.

    • A hacker accessed the magazine's website on Monday (July 27th) and took it offline for hours but insists it was over a hatred of New York rather than anything to do with the Cosby story. He told Daily Dot that he hadn't even seen the cover before attacking the website.
    • The Daily News' headline is a reference to the title "America's Dad" which Bill was dubbed while playing Dr. Cliff Huxtable on The Cosby Show.

    The couple recently chatted with Daily Mail's Event magazine about their marriage. Sonny said, "He is so youthful and I guess I'm kind of an old worry wart so we bridge the gap. It doesn't come up much. He's in better shape than me, which infuriates me." Patrick added, "I remember my 40th birthday vividly and I swear to God it was last week. I have a little bit of arthritis but I don't feel any different."
