Lil' Kim has stories for days. On Wednesday's "RapFix Live," the Queen Bee buzzed about her career, the things she's done and the people she's met. When a fan asked about Whitney Houston, a bright smile came upon Kim's face and the memories came flooding. "Oh my goodness, I absolutely adored and loved Whitney Houston," Kim gushed about the late icon.
Turns out, at one time, Kim and Houston shared something in common — crazed stalkers. Once Houston learned of an obsessed fan who would leave creepy gifts at Kim's doorstep, "The Bodyguard" actress offered her own personal bodyguard to help protect the female rapper.
"Whitney Houston called me, and she was like, 'Kim, I will send my guy, because remember when that stalker was in my house?' " Kim said, reenacting the conversation with her best Whitney impression. "She was so sweet about it," Kim remembered.
That wasn't the only time the Hardcore
MC and the pop diva bonded. Kim also recalled a time that she ended up on the same flight with Houston and her then-husband Bobby Brown. Surprised to see the femcee, Brown suggested Houston sit next to Kim so they could have a bit of girl talk. Kim excitedly agreed, but Whitney wasn't in the mood for much conversation — or so she said: "She was like, 'Girl, I'm not much of a talker,' " Kim recalled. "In my mind, I'm like, 'This is Whitney. I don't care, she can still sit there. I'll just look at her.' "
Kim's dog Diamond was the icebreaker, however, and after Houston sat the pooch on her lap, she began to open up. Seems like Whitney was in the mood for some girl talk after all. "By the time we got in the air and they were getting ready to serve dinner, she had talked me to sleep," Kim said, laughing. "She was so down to earth, so beautiful."
