Whitney Houston was known for her voice, but she was also known for something else: Her hilariously shady comments!

Whitney was hella talented, but she was also hella funny. Remember when she went all the way AWF on Wendy Williams back in 2003? The entire 24-minute interview was full of gems, but one moment stood out more than the rest.

At one point in the “discussion,” Whitney basically told ole girl to “cash [her] ousside” and called Wendy out for her looks. Whitney’s words exactly: “If this were back in the day in Newark, I’d meet you outside” and “I’m sure when you look at yourself in the mirror you have some reservations about your look, too … I’ve seen you! I KNOW how you look!”

And we can’t forget that Diane Sawyer interview when, in response to allegations that she was a drug abuser, particularly of the crack cocaine variety, she got homegirl all the way together. “First of all, let’s get one thing straight,” she said while grabbing a mug of tea. “Crack is cheap. I’ve made too much money to ever smoke crack. We don’t do crack. We don’t do that. Crack is wack!”

Responding to rumors and tabloid headlines that she spent $730,000 on her drug habit, she then uttered the now iconic words, which we use in the blogs and on social media all the time to prove whether or not something is real: “I WANNA SEE THE RECEIPTS!

So, yeah, Whitney Houston was a trip. This we know. But what we didn’t know was the stuff she said behind closed doors. And in the trailer for her upcoming documentary “Whitney,” we get to see a ton of behind the scenes footage, including a moment where she shades the fawk out of Paula Abdul, who was her industry rival at the time.
