Whitney Spits Out The Truth About Bobby

| Filed under: Oprah WinfreyWhitney Houston

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."

Wow…Childish much?

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.

    Houston: We got a problem.
    The incoherent Whitney,
    not known for
    turning a phrase.
    Bitch's grasp on the
    English language tenuous.
    Genuine, yes.
    Granny's voice only
    a mere shadow of
    what once was.
    Self-inflicted horror
    of what could have been.

    I love Whitney. Her problems are really not surprising. Thank God, she is where she is now. MRS. LOHAN SHOULD HAVE BEEN WATCHING AND TAKE A LESSON FROM CISSY HOUSTON ON HOW TO REALLY BE A MOTHER ! Thank God, you are here, Whitney…xo



  7. 7

    I PERONALLY THINK SHE IS NOT AT ALL THAT GREAT ANYMORE. SHE IS NOT WHAT SHE USE TO BE. HER VOICE IS RATHER POOR AND NOT AS "ON POINT" AS IT USE TO BE. SHE IS NO CELINE DION WHO IS A TRUE DIVA!!!



  8. 8

    Honestly she was a funny crackhead but im glad she is back to her old awesomeness… i love you whitney



  9. 9

    She is as much to blame as him and sounds brain fried.



  14. 14

    Bobbbbbeeeeeee! Kiss my ass!

    Re: JoeyFanguy – oh for god sake of course her voice will never be "the bodyguard" or anything like that again- freebasing coke will do that to you! this was the story of a human who had it all and lost it, and is trying to put it back together again. its not even about her voice! dont you get it?



  16. 16

    This just goes to show you how the most intelligent women with so much success and so much money and so much going for them can be so incredibly stupid when it comes to their choices in (sick, weak, insecure and immature) men, to the point even that they justify the abuse they heap on them for years and years. I am sad her voice is so rough and she says "do you know what I mean?" after every sentence, but she is on the road back to being fabulous and I wish her all the success in the world. Bobby Brown, who is so god-awful ugly and untalented it is impossible to think how she could have found this loser attractive (in all respects) and sexy enough to marry, can go to hell.



  17. 17

    I do not care. I do not like Whitney Houston. I like a few songs of hers but not her personally….. So how about that Kanye?? Yeah… He's a dick!



  18. 18

    I don't get what you people are talking about. Who gives a flying fuck if she can sing or not. She was going down hill big time. We all seen what was happening to her. She was a mess ( just to keep it real). But she is overcoming it right now. we should be happy that she got her life together. Lord only know what could have happen. All that really mattters to me is that she is clean healthy and in her right mind.

    Whitney is a has been she is a drug addict and a crack head she can blame it all on Bobby if she wants but she will never be were she used to be, I'll never buy her shit or her music. ONCE A CRACK HEAD ALWAYS A CRACK HEAD THE ONLY REASON SHE GOT OUT FROM UNDER HIM FINELY IS THAT THE MONEY HAS RUN OUT. She is no DIVA quit giving her praise Perez she doesn't deserve it. DIVA NOT give that to people that have work



  20. 20

    Love you Whitney!



  21. 21

    Yeah and just STFU BobbAY!!



  22. 22

    Re: Rickneeds2kno – Wow. Well said.



  23. 23

    So glad Whitney is making a comeback! And yes, good riddance to Bobby.



  24. 24

    I really love Whitney. I watched the interview and appreciated her honesty. I was sad to actually SEE and HEAR what the drugs have done to her. She looked older than Oprah and that angelic voice that inspired me so much is gone. I also noticed she talks with a lisp. I am happy and sad at the same time.



  25. 25

    I saw the interview and it was very heart-felt. As a woman I felt everything she was saying and definitely was relating to a lot of her experiences. It happens to the best of us…She's got my respect now that I got to hear her side.



  26. 26

    Wow. I'm so glad Whitney left that no good LOSER. The interview was great. Whitney looks great. She's definitely in a better place now. Can't wait to see Part 2 tomorrow!! Go Whitney. ;-)

    Re: Eula
    Girl stfu. Your ignorant ass. Whitney is THE diva. THE voice. Get over it and recognize, bitch!

    Re: THA_SHIZNIT – Don't you mean USED to be?



  30. 30

    CRY ME A RIVER. She was the breadwinner of the house. She had more power than Bobby Brown. She could have left the relationship if she wanted to. But she was inlove with the bozo. If BB disrespected her, she didn't feel compelled to leave. Now she wants to sell abums, and she's playing the victim?



  31. 31

    Re: didntneedtoseethat
    Nope. Whitney is still "THE voice", like Oprah said. No one can top Whitney Houston's peak, so she remains THE VOICE!

    Bobby's a jerk. What exactly did he expect when he married "Whitney Houston"?? She's a well known, hugely successful singer. How sad for her that she had to give up a part of herself for him. It's also sad for her fans because her voice today is nowhere near as good as it was back then.



  33. 33

    THE US OPEN is on instead of OPRAH UGHHHH



  34. 34

    Whitney looks so good. Welcome back you talented lady!!



  35. 35

    please…girls a dum ass!!! her new cd sucks…a little too late
    crackhead



  36. 36

    Everyone in her family was against the marriage. It was well known what a douchebag he was! She dug her own grave, and now she's trying to get out of it? Well, it's just too late for that Whitney! Your career is OVER



  37. 37

    i watched the interview. she never really took responsibility for her own actions. she didnt answer all the questions and oprah would answer for her. i think oprah was too star struck to do a good interview. i will never like whitney houston. she seems…shady and also very ghetto despite coming from a family with money.

  39. 39

    Re: MoeShu – totally true. the funny thing is, she is not a song writer or producer/arranger so she only has her voice to fall back one. now that is gone and itsa her own fault. she will try to put blame on bobby but anyone with a real brain knows that she made her bed.



  40. 40

    Go away you old washed-up scank, need more drugs



  41. 41

    HOW ABOUT, she accepts some reponsibility for herself…huh? How bout it? We could all blame our problems on others, but you can't change shit if you don't admit YOU yourself played a part in it.



  42. 42

    Why didn't Oprah do this interview on live tv in front of her audience like she does everything else?? Ohh yeah, so it could be edited, nipped and tucked exactly the way Oprah felt it would do her ratings the best.



  43. 43

    She isn't the same sophisticated, intelligent, classy lady from 15 years ago. I hope she's not still using. I also want to know why someone would waste perfectly good cocaine by rolling it in a joint??



  44. 44

    sorry whitney for your lapse in good judgement,, bs.. bobby did not cause her problems , she liked it like that



  45. 45

    is it just me, or did whitney seem proud of her past drug use? she had like a smirk on her face the whole time…



  46. 46

    Ya blame bobby for everything, she was a crack head she needs to own her part in her down fall, did anyone ever watch their reality show? she was a nut job, in comparison bobby looked sane, and seemed to be the more hands on parent. It always amazes me when woman blame all their bad choices on the men in their lives, she picked him!!!!!!!!!!



  47. 47

    The Real Story was never really touched upon, and won't be…



  48. 48

    I really don't get it. The interview was personal, and up close, but I feel as if Oprah treated her with kid gloves. I imagine that any drug addict off the street who was a mother or father Oprah would probably lay into.. Does she really deserve special treatment for making such bad decisions?



  49. 49

    It's great to see Whitney finally facing what her life had become with Bobby Brown and the drug use. She used to be evasive in interviews back in the day because she wasn't ready to be honest about what her situation had degenerated into. Bobby would jump up onstage when Whitney would be invited to events(Kanye the original). He was always trying to upstage her so I can understand what she meant about "making herself smaller" so her dick of man "could be bigger". That's what women do; we go along to get along and sometimes that's a mistake especially when you are compromising a big part of yourself or compromising something that's really important to you. Love ya, Whitney.



  50. 50

    Unfortunately as you age your voice becomes less what it was. Whitney has aged, abused drugs and been out of the music scene for several years now and all of these things work against her. I don't know if she'll ever be the vocal phenom she once was but as long as she's clean and sober that's all that really matters in the end because she has gotten control of her life back. As for taking responsibility for the part she played in her troubles I agree she needs to own it more but this is a start. Baby steps, people, baby steps.



  51. 51

    That's not sad. The sad thing is that she stayed with him for so long. But now that she wants to make a come back she's trying to play the victim card. Now THAT is sad.



  52. 52

    So pleased she's back, cleaned herself up and got rid of that bloody idiot Bobby!!



  53. 53

    WOW! Some of you people in the comments talking about how she's "playing the victim", "its her own fault" etc etc…I'm so glad you have such a perfect life on your nice little pedestal that you can talk crap about Miss Houston all day long! You people are so petty.



  54. 54

    THIS BITCH TOTALLY LIED ABOUT SMOKING CRACK. YOU CAN'T FREAKIN SMOKE CRACK IN A JOINT! IT WOULD CRACK (THUS CALLED CRACK) AND SPIT/FIZZLE AND IT JUST AIN'T HAPPENING. SHE MADE A POINT TO SAY SHE WASN'T INTO THE GLASS PIPE AND THAT IS STRAIGHT UP BS! LIKE SMOKING IT IN A PIPE IS ANY DIFFERENT FROM ROLLING IT IN A JOINT? WHAT GIVES WITH THAT, IF SHE WERE TRULY MAKING AMENDS SHE WOULD TELL THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOT JUST WHAT SHE WANTS US TO BELIEVE. BITCH WAS STRAIGHT UP A CRACK-HEAD…PERIOD! AND YOU CAN HEAR IT IN HER VOICE NOW, SHE COULD BARELY BREATH AND THAT RASPY PART OF HER VOICE IN STRAIGHT UP FROM CRACK. I WAS HAPPY TO HEAR HER ACTUALLY ADMIT IS BUT TERRIBLY DISAPPOINTED WHEN SHE SAID SHE "WASN'T SMOKING FROM A GLASS PIPE" OR WHATEVER IT WAS. AND OPRAH IS SOOO NAIVE SHE BOUGHT IT HOOK LINE AND SINKER! AND I WANTED TO KNOW HOW SHE WENT OFF THE DEEP END CRACKED OUT NOT THE STUPID SHIT BOBBY DID, THIS WAS A WHITNEY INTERVIEW!



  55. 55

    Re: Dorein – ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME! FOR ONE, LINDSAY ISN'T EVEN A MOM AND TWO CALLING WHITNEY MOM OF THE YEAR WHEN SHE WAS ADDICTED TO CRACK FOR YEARS IS PRICELESS. DOH!



  56. 56

    ummmm yeah. crackhead's are SOOOO credible. Take your shitty music and GO



  57. 57

    Whitney looks fabulous. I'm glad for her!



  58. 58

    Jeez pervez, I say good for her, but from what I've heard, she has lost her vocal range for a fact and by exposing everything in her interview to Op, she has given up her "mystique" as a Diva. While she stepped out of the limelight, Auto-tune was invented. We are all Divas now. She should have just changed wardrobe and done an exchange hits cover with Auntie Dionne and become the Mickey Rourke of Music.



  59. 59

    yeah, right, she was a victim and her drug use was only pot "laced with" vast amounts of coke and no glass pipes were involved and it was all his fault.

    I remember seeing her picture once in a magazine locked in a room smoking what appeared to be crack or coke from a glass pipe.

    Their fights were mutual and legendary.

    I guess every comeback needs a scapegoat. In this case, its BB



  60. 60

    Re: WHoustonSt – why is it petty for stating the truth? she made her choices and now shes trying to blame the man she was with for what she chose to do. she has way more at her disposal than the common person and yet still made her bad choices thus showing the world she is an idiot. why is that petty to admit that?



  61. 61

    im curious to know how long she's been actually sober
