From the May 3rd issue of TV Guide: A diva moment: It wasn't jealousy over Tamyra Gray's rendition of "I Will Always Love You" that convinced Whitney Houston to play herself in the May 12 season finale of Fox's Boston Public but rather a plea from series creator David E. Kelley. He phoned Houston and asked if she'd play a studen't superstar prom date. To sweeten the deal, Kelley is letting the diva sing a track from her latest CD. It's not right, but it's OK.
