Another entry in the department of questionable marketing strategies in the wake of Whitney Houston's death: The broker trying to sell her former New Jersey mansion has updated the listing "with a heavy heart" to note that "this house was also the scene of the activity that brought down this incredible music diva over a 15 year cycle," reports the New York Post. Among other things, it's where she filmed her infamous reality show with then-hubby Bobby Brown.

Sure it's sad, but "if you owned this house you would always have these incredible stories to go with it," adds the listing. "A great conversation piece for anyone." The full listing is here, along with photos. But you'll need to prove you're good for the $1.75 million asking price before you get a showing. (More Whitney Houston stories.)
