In the wake of Whitney Houston's death, Kim and John banter about the way that some stars are surrounded by people who don't have their well-being forefront in their minds. They cite an article in the Hollywood Reporter in which Houston's long-time mentor, Clive Davis is accused of looking the other way when it came to the singer's troubles.

Michael Jackson and Charlie Sheen are also discussed.
