Today is the long awaited premiere of Oprah Winfrey's tell-all interview with Whitney Houston. It's sure to be one eye-opening and shocking conversation, judging by some of tid-bits released.
The most shocking details came from the stories behind her marriage to Bobby Brown, which can only truly be described as the epitome of abusive relationships.
She recalls Bobby "slapped" her once, which made her retaliate by hitting him in the head "three times."
Since drugs and alcohol played such a vital role in their relationship, she recalls Bobby being so drunk one evening that he spat on her! She explained to Oprah that she "was horrified he spit on me, in my face" and that left her "very hurt, very angry."
Whitney admits that probably the worst drug she was addict to was him, as she wouldn't do anything without him, including actual drugs. But he didn't reciprocate the same affections for her as she recalls that their marriage got so bad that Bobby "was cutting her head off pictures and painting evil eyes on their bedroom walls with spray paint."
The core of the problem was the jealousy Bobby harbored for Whitney's success. So much so that she had to downplay her own success just to make him feel better.
Sad. Just sad.
Good riddance to him! Now, we can have our strong willed diva back, and not a moment too soon.
