Alleged ghost-humper Bobby Brown has written a memoir called Every Little Step, and thanks to a recent interview with 20/20 and some people getting their hands on a copy before its release, we’ve learned a lot, mostly about Whitney Houston.
Bobby claims several things about Whitney like the first time he saw her do coke was on their wedding day, he isn’t the reason she got hooked on drugs, they used to do drugs in the house, he hit her once and she was in a long-term relationship with her assistant Robyn Crawford. Well, Whitney’s mama Cissy Houston isn’t happy that Bobby’s memoir reads like a tacky tell-all about Whitney’s messy life and she’s calling him out.
Cissy has proven many times that she has a very low tolerance for Bobby B’s fuckery (or just fuckery in general, really). So it’s not exactly a surprise that she would swat at Bobby in a statement she gave to People. Especially since Whitney isn’t alive to respond to any of Bobby’s claims and their daughter Bobbi Kristina isn’t alive to help provide the receipts. Cissy’s full read of Bobby is after the cut.
“Last night I saw Bobby Brown’s interview with Robin Roberts. It was disturbing. Although the interview was supposed to promote HIS autobiography, he never spoke about his parents and siblings and any issues they might have or have had that impacted and may continue to impact on ‘Every Little Step’ he takes. Instead he chose to concentrate his comments primarily on Whitney. I can’t help but wonder why.
Whether I would have chosen Bobby for my daughter’s husband is not important because the choice was not mine to make. She loved him and I believe him when he says he loved her. I only wish he had loved and respected her enough to make some of the negative statements about her and Krissi while Whitney was alive and able to respond from her perspective.
On the OPRAH show when Whitney said Bobby had spit in her face and Krissi had seen it, Krissi was in the audience and available to challenge anything her mother said. Bobby was alive and free to dispute what she said. He chose not to; instead he waited to speak about her when she could no longer speak for herself.
There is no value in my challenging all of his statements – point for point – such as his assertion that he ‘had money’ when he married Whitney or that anyone in my family said he started Nippy on drugs. No one blames Bobby for that. However, I must say that his story of seeing her do drugs for the first time on their wedding day is untrue (Donna Houston, Robyn Crawford and I were with Nippy the whole time before the ceremony), and more importantly, it forever casts a shadow over one of the most important days of her life.
I am deeply disappointed that this interview to promote the story of Bobby’s life seemed to be more of an exposé on Whitney’s life. My problem with Bobby has always been that he became her husband but not her helpmate or protector. My prayer for Nippy and Krissi is that they will soon rest in peace. My prayer for me is that someday, somewhere beyond the horizon where we cannot see, I will be with them again…And Joy will come in the morning.”
In the event that statement is too long for you, please see Cousin Dionne Warwick hissing: “I got your number, hussy“, as I believe that pretty much sums it all up.
I know Cissy hates Bobby B with the fire of a thousand burning crack pipes, but Cissy might want to step back a bit before slapping at Bobby for including Whitney in his memoir. After all, at least Bobby waited more than a year after Whitney’s death before he made some tell-all memoir money off her.
Speaking of Bobby’s expert showing of tact and class, we can add another thing to the long list of things he says Whitney did that she’s unable to confirm. According to Page Six, Bobby claims in Every Little Step that Whitney cheated on him with several producers and artists, one of which he says was Tupac Shakur. He also points a finger back at Cissy and the rest of the Houstons in his book, saying: “Both Whitney and Kristi had been tragically lost on their watch, not mine.”
And now I can’t help but picture an alternate reality where Whitney does Poetic Justice instead of The Bodyguard. I can totally see Nippy asking Tupac if he wants to smell her “punani.”
