Arsenio Hall Brought to Tears Talking About His Friend Whitney Houston

Originally posted 01/15/2014 05:30PM

Arsenio Hall found himself moved to tears while interviewing Tika Sumpter on his talk show on Wednesday.

Hall, who was a longtime friend of Whitney Houston's, asked the 33-year-old what it was like working with "The Voice" on her last film Sparkle, which came out after she died in 2012.

"Whitney was everything," said Sumpter, who played the Grammy winner's daughter. "You'd be sitting in a corner, and I'd be just kind of quiet, they'd be changing for the set-up and she's like, 'You okay, baby? Who do I need to talk to to make sure you're all right?' And I'm like, 'I'm good' and she's like, 'All right, I got you.' She was just like a mother."

"He arrived with an entourage and brought rum for everyone to drink," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "He posed for photos with fans and answered fan questions. He seemed like he was in a really good mood."

Although the night was upbeat, things turned sentimental when the singer's topic turned to the late Whitney Houston, who he said "inspired" him and he "always admired."

Photographer Norman Seeff Unveils Images of Diane Keaton, Cher & More for the First Time at Public Auction

Two years before Diane Keaton charmed audiences in Annie Hall, she posed for photographer Norman Seeff.

But Seeff says Keaton's off-camera persona matched up with what she portrayed on-screen.

"You know when you see Diane in a movie and there’s this kind of personality, this bright-eyed innocence? When I worked with her, there was this same feeling, but underneath the innocence was such a smart woman. She had the wonderful ability to just be herself. She flowed from one thing to the other, so I just kept pace with her. It was a jewel of a session," he told Vanity Fair of photographing the actress.

An American Airlines flight from Los Angeles International to New York's John F Kennedy Airport was forced to make an emergency landing in Kansas City Friday after an unidentified woman refused to stop singing Whitney Houston songs.

Local Missouri station KCTV 5 broadcast one passenger's stealth video showing authorities escorting the would-be crooner off the plane as she was still wailing Houston's iconic cover of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You."

It's time for Bobby Brown to face the music for his DUI conviction.

Whitney Houston's ex was handcuffed and led out of Los Angeles court to jail Wednesday to begin his 55-day sentence for an October arrest in Studio City, Calif.

But the soul singer may only serve only nine days because of jail overcrowding and time off for good behavior, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore tells the Los Angeles Times.
