These People Crazy by idontknowmuch


Bobby Brown’s new autobiography, subtitled The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth, dishes on his marriage with singer Whitney Houston and the destruction they caused in each other’s lives. People reports:

Bobby Brown is dishing on his rocky marriage to Whitney Houston in a new tell-all autobiography – but she’s not letting his accusations affect her…….Whitney’s rep responded in a statement to PEOPLE: “Miss Houston is sad that Bobby feels he need to say such things but she choses to take the high road and will not speak badly about the father of her child even if it’s to set the record straight.”

After reading through some of the already released excerpts, it obvious that this ‘autobiography’ is going to contain some fun little tidbits. Some interesting claims include:

–Brown claims he never used cocaine until he married Whitney in 1992. (When I initially read this, I literally laughed out loud).
–Before he met Houston, Brown says “I had experimented with other drugs, but marijuana is my drug of choice.” (You and me both, Panama Red).
–Brown claims that at one point, he used drugs uncontrollably: “I was using everything I could get my hands on, from cocaine to heroin, weed and cooked cocaine.” (OK, so the star of New Edition and a man who’s had his own independent career never did anything but smoke some weed up until he met Whitney Houston? Then, after she corrupted him, he was shooting up and smoking crack basically simultaneously? Wow. Quite the bad influence Whitney is.)
–Brown says that he and Whitney “Got married for the wrong reasons….Whitney had a different agenda for getting married. I believe her agenda was to clean up her image.” (I was alive and relatively sane in 1992; I don’t remember Whitney Houston having any image issues before Bobby Brown, outside of some rumors that she might be a lesbian. So maybe thats what Bobby is alluding to.)

So, lets add it all up folks. Prior to his marriage to Whitney Houston in 1992, Bobby Brown–a member of one of the most successful boy bands of all-time and the owner of a successful solo career–was a church-attending singer who was looking for love and only dabbled in some weed. Meanwhile, Whitney Houston–one of the industry’s biggest talents and the possesser of a spotless image–was secretly looking for a man to marry so she could hide her lesbian life while also getting him addicted to cocaine, crack, and heroin.

I’m sure thats it. You never had a chance, Bobby.

PS–The guy who wrote the book along with Brown is ‘Derrick Handspike’. I loved his scene with Kendra Jade in “Up and Cummers 13: The Squirters.”
