be newsPat Houston, the sister-in-law and manager of Whitney Houston, reportedly had a suicide scare when cops were called to her home after a suspicious Facebook post. Houston, who starred in the reality show “The Houstons: On Our Own” with Whitney’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday after she was found passed out next to a pill bottle.

Family and friends close to Pat thought she had attempted to take her life after she posted on her Facebook page: “Sometimes you just feel like giving up on life and its many challenges. And for the first time in my life…I’m tired…and I want to finally rest. I love you guys.”
