Brandy Norwood's birthday was one to remember for all the wrong reasons.
The singer, whose E! News sit-down with Monica on Thursday was memorably (and, now we know, momentously) crashed by Whitney Houston, turned 33 yesterday—but there was no celebrating following Houston's shocking death.
Eyewitnesses saw Houston hand the "In My Room" chanteuse a note or, possibly, a card when the longtime friends crossed paths on Thursday.
And while Brandy and Monica were too distraught to perform at Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy party last night, Brandy wasn't the only Norwood overcome with grief.
