Funeral Home 'Angry' Over Leaked Whitney Houston Open Casket Photo

Facing backlash over the Whitney Houston open casket photo splashed on the cover of the National Enquirer, the funeral home says it was not the source of the leak.

"We have no commentóbut it was not the funeral home," says a spokeswoman for the Whigham Funeral Home in Newark, New Jersey.

"I am very angry, very upset, just like the family, just like the fans."

"We don't like it because it implicates us," she adds. "Whitney was a personal friend to me and my family. We would not do that."

As for the National Enquirer, they are defending publishing the photo saying "it was beautiful."

It claims the open casket photo was taken at the private viewing held for family and friends last Friday.

The photograph covers the tabloid with the headline "Whitney: The Last Photo!"
