Being Bobby Brown premieres tonight on Bravo. MSNBC calls it “the most disgusting and execrable series ever.” But after reading this delightfully scatological Q&A in Time Out New York you know you wanna watch it, sickos.

TONY: You and Whitney are so intertwined in the public mind. Does it bother you that some people call you Mr. Whitney Houston?
BOBBY BROWN: That doesn’t bother me, because that’s my wife and I’m proud of her.
TONY: Evidently, you’re very close. There’s a moment in the show when you describe helping Whitney with constipation by using your, uh, hand. Were you kidding?
BOBBY BROWN: Oh no, I had to. She couldn?t go boo-boo. Sometimes, when people are constipated, you gotta help them out.
TONY: I don’t know if I’d do that for my wife.
TONY: I don’t think she’d let me. But I’m glad you guys have that type of relationship.
BOBBY BROWN: Yes, we do.

“How will I know if he really loves me?” — Whitney, I think you’ve got your answer.

POST-PREMIRE UPDATE: If you missed it, FourFour has an extensive recap with screengrabs! (Link via Cityrag.)

  2. Oh my god in heaven. Kind of puts a whole new spin on “The Greatest Love of All,” don’t it?

    How ’bout some fucking prune juice instead of your fingers you nasty fuck.

    I’ll be watching it.

  8. There’s no way Sheffield’s going to the Mets, either, Mike, so chill out.

    Sorry, that was off-topic… although I’m sure a baseball bat has been just one of Whitney’s tools for anti-constipation.

    The best clip from this show I’ve seen so far involves Bobby in a restaurant, talking to some old dude who doesn’t recognize him.

    “I’m Bobby Brown!”
    “Yeah. You probably don’t recognize me cuz I’m not wearing an orange jumpsuit at the moment.”

    why do black people use “boo-boo” as the babytalk word for shit? this could cause a lot of confusion since white people use “boo-boo” as babytalk for an injury.
    that is, it could cause a lot of confusion if white people and black people ever talked babytalk around each other.

    I think he was just trying to retrieve a heroin balloon.

  12. can we please get a combo name for these two. maybe whitbob or um, bobney?

  13. Nelson  |   Posted on Jun 30th, 2005 0

    In light of the recent constipation revelation, I can see why she kept her maiden name.

  14. Alex  |   Posted on Jul 1st, 2005 0

    Bobney! Bobney!

    I don’t understand where his hand went. Did he just massage her stomach or what? That would be weird enough.

    This show makes Bravo’s other programming nearly watchable.

    WORST show I’ve seen in ages – and bear in mind, I’ve been dragged through Lost for the last few weeks as well.

    The only morbidly compelling (and barely) thing to focus your attention on if forced to watch this show: the skeletal remains (mental and physical) of one of the most successful female pop stars of all time.


  17. jed2  |   Posted on Jul 1st, 2005 0

    Combo name:

    Whobbny Housebrown.

    Before his excavation work he had to coat his fingers, hand, wrist and forearm in vaseline.

  20. Cristie  |   Posted on Jul 1st, 2005 0

    ‘freaky. thats something a parent might do to a baby not a grown woman’

  21. Gabi  |   Posted on Jul 1st, 2005 0

    CRACK IS WACK!!!!!!!!!!!
    I’m sure my husband love me but not that much and i’m sure as hell don’t love him like that, somethings must be kept in private. You got to have a time for youself only!

  22. andru  |   Posted on Jul 1st, 2005 0

    Whitoby? I like that.

  23. Rex Karz  |   Posted on Jul 1st, 2005 0

    In a strange and twisted way that is very touching.

  24. Inside Hollywood Agent  |   Posted on Jul 1st, 2005 0

    this shit is bananas…maybe that’s what got whitney all constipated in the first place…too many of ‘em!

  25. tess  |   Posted on Jul 2nd, 2005 0

    Some guys like nasty shit. A friend of mine told me that her man liked to get her tampax in & out during her periods. I taught it was strange but Bobney antics are really over the top. No wonder critics called this show disgusting. I guess that instead of focusing in freeing Katie, people should be preoccupied by freeing Withney!!!! I mean, it’s an emergency…The woman became a total mess. I also pity their daughter, Cristina, for having to put up with the most fuc#d up parents in the world.

    It depends on your perception, like everything else. I see all the bad publicity about this show, but for whatever reason, Bobbi and Whitney love each other and they’re together and they both know that the public is interested in what they do. I think we all need to stop taking on the job of critic and accept people for who they are – yes, even Bobbi and Whitney and let them be human. It must be a huge responsibility to judge everyone so harshly every day, but I guess we can’t see the good in ourselves unless we’re cutting others down? No? No wonder the focuses of our judgement turn to drugs.

  27. amber  |   Posted on Jul 5th, 2005 0

    what is the person above me talking about?

    if you don’t want people judging you or being critical of your actions, don’t become famous and discuss pulling shit out of your wife’s ass! that’s NASTY!

  28. I saw the show…they ARE nasty with a capital N and both on some serious drugs. Whitney comes across so strung out and ghetto…it’s hard to believe she’s the same Whitney of the 80s and 90s…gross, I’m done watching.

    I just don’t understand how being famous lets people believe that they can throw manners and common decency out the window when they are in public…being a rock star is one thing, certain things are accepted and even hoped for by the public, but she could have been the biggest diva yet and threw it all away to be with this guy? the way the two act and talk…foolish and embarassing to themselves and their families.

    over 1million people tuned in and as you saw they are real people i dont think whitney is over because so many people still wont to know what her in bobby are doing im glad they can still keep it hood i gess people think once you get in the lime light people think u are sopose to act a certain type of way dam that they kept it real. now the shit thing was a bit much but thats whats so real i read some post people say i would not do the shit thing men if u love someboby u will do shit blood what ever i cant say i would wont to but i would love makes u do some wild stuff

  30. CatAnnBur  |   Posted on Jul 9th, 2005 0

    I think that the show is excellent. It shows that Bobby and Whitney really love each other. I love the fact that it shows them as down-to-earth people. Whitney is really comfortable with herself and being around her man with no makeup. It is good to see Bobby in the spotlight again in a positive way – supported by a loving wife and family.

    Did he sniff his fingers after?

  32. linda  |   Posted on Jul 12th, 2005 0

    I’ve wached every show, and I really enjoyed watching them. I laugh soooooo, I felt very confortable with their interaction with each other. In my house some of the same things happen and I feel that I have a very loving 27 year marriage. You must have fun in a relationship. Why do we expect stars to be any different from us. It’s ok for us to have fun, madness,etss…But if you’re in the public eye, you must project that fake image….that’s not good. Life is short, and you better enjoy while you cam. I LOVE THE PROGRAM…..IT’S FUNNY


    YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LOl weird man ….thats all i can say …weierd

  34. RJ Hughes  |   Posted on Jul 14th, 2005 0

    OK CRACK KILLS……a career. Poor Whitney has been through it, you can see it on her face, teeth, and body. I hope she get’s the help she needs, now that Luther is gone, we really NEED some “sangers” and she is one of the greatest. Oh yeah…Bobby’s cool too, it’s just I have baby daddy drama, and I need him to put down the meals, liquor and expensive watches and pay for all 5 of his kids and let them all be on TV. But the other baby momma probably just wants her CHECK! He can ask his wife for the money, but she’s got her funds tied up a bit….We’re praying for you Whitney, GOD BLESS (and Bobby and his baby momma’s too!)

  35. Gizmo  |   Posted on Jul 14th, 2005 0

    I would just like to say I have watched the show and would not miss it for all the tea in China!,,,,I am releaved to see that Wit/Bob are only human and do some of the same fucked up shit we all do from time to time. My only concern is there are children involved and because people are so screwed up they will never be able to live a norman life,,,,ever again! God bless them and I pray Little Christina survives this and can one day help her parents because they do have issue’s!

    What a disgrace Bobby Brown is!! No manners, a ravaging alcoholic, slob, crude and a leech!!. He will be dead in less than 5 years. For Whitney, it is pretty sad! I just don’t know why she stays with him. You can tell she is a complete drug addict. I have seen drug addicts and Whitney is definitely one. I feel for the kids!! They should pull these kids from these two lunatics!

  37. Kimmy  |   Posted on Jul 17th, 2005 0

    I would like to add that the media only gives the people what they want. People feed into negativity. We live in a very celebrity conscience society. That’s why everytime you turn on the TV, you see Brad Pitt leaves wife, Brad Pitt hospitalized, and Jennifer Lopez insuring body parts. That’s NEWS for today’s times. If the public wouldn’t watch and support this mess, then the media will start bringing forth some “good” TV. In the meantime, you get shows like “Being bobby Brown”, “I want to be a Hilton, and “Queer Eye for the straight guy”. Start writing these TV shows, and these TV media companies and share your feelings about today’s TV. (HOW IT SUCKS) Until then stop complaining and make a step forward to trying to improve things! That’s all I have to say!!!!! Peace Out!

    Bobby and Whitney are just disgusting I can’t believe he would stick his hand up her ass, “What ever happen to citrate magnesium, or a enema.” However I think the show is quite entertaining and Whitney and Bobby are definitely on that CRACK. Notice I said Whitney first meaning that she is still the one wearing the pants, Furthermore Whitney should change her name to Whitney BooBooBrown… I feel so sorry for Christina because. Sorry Whitney fans but her career is over she is nothing but a once diva gone bad becausing she was to busy smoking that shit. Her next single is going to be (“Bobby hands smell like Boo Booooo!!!”) featuring outkast. can you hear the tune “I know you like to think Bobby hand are clean but lean a little bit closer and see the his finger really smell like Whitneys Boo Boooo!!!!” now that a hit. maybe Whitney will have a career

    It’s amazing to hear how scewed people’s perceptions are. The same rumors and misconceptions that have been blown up and over-exaggerated continue to be spat out and circulated without even the best of senses. Why do people continue to let the media think for them? Seriously, does Whitney even look like a crack addict now? Are her teeth falling out, is her skin caked with cankers? Look closely — she’s as beautiful as she ever was, with maturity and humorism highlighting it all. If people pay attention, they would know that the couple has kicked their habits, been to rehab, cleaned up and moving forward. Why can’t the rest of America do the same? Yeah, they have kids — that’s precisely the reason they’ve done so and why they are trying to enlighten their reputations. You can’t know everything about a person by what you hear. Even a tv show has missing pieces. But at least watch for yourself. There has to be something good you can take away. So the show might reek, but how do you know unless you base your own judgement? And even if so, maybe there’s a chance you can at least see Bobby and Whitney as the real people they are. That’s all they ever wanted. Not to be esteemed as saints, but as regular people. So talking about shit is gross. How much sick stuff do you admit to discussing with friends and family, either jokingly or seriously? No doubt, it’s stupid to be talking about it, but then again, who brought up the question — yeah, some reporter. Any intellectual question or topic could have been brought up, yet this was asked.

    Educate yourself. Bobby and Whitney are loved by their family, people they work with, and even those who open their minds to them. With blasted comments like leech and crude, it shows people don’t care to fill in the facts of people they talk about. Oh joyous Americans.

    Did you know Bobby started his own production company with his sister called Brownhouze Productions? It’s about family helping family. It’s about trying to be the best parents they can for their kids. It’s about trying to inform people. And it’s about just showing they’re comfortable with who they really are. That’s what the show’s purpose in production was all about. Whether that all gets translated on air-time is yet to be seen.

    What a bunch of sick MOTHER FUCKERS, that is more disgusting than DSC, .

  41. I just hope that people watching don’t beleive that all black people are crazy nasy like that. Stereotypes ugh!

  42. Jaetee  |   Posted on Jul 29th, 2005 0

    The funniest part about all the hype around the show is all the critics and viewers and other celebs act like the same screwed up stuff isnt going on in all of there homes and families. Whitney and Bobby are just airing their mess on TV…which is kinda sad, but all the people watching love it because it gives them someone to make fun of, to avoid talking about their own lives. I have not heard one thing said on the show that I have not heard other couples in life say or talk about. If you watch, just take it in as entertainment, if you dont…just go on your way and shut up. Americans need to get over themselves.

  43. Tyree  |   Posted on Jul 29th, 2005 0

    Why are yall so harsh…you have to admit that the show is entertaining and hilarious. Nobody knew that they keep it that real. You shouldnt really comment if you only seen the first couple of shows because the one last night was soooooo funny. I still think that Whitney looks high or drunk most of the time, but Bobby is making money from this show and obviously they are not struggling because they just shop and eat good during all of the shows. He actually seems more sane then Whitney sometimes…….

  44. patti  |   Posted on Jul 31st, 2005 0

    I have loved Whitney for so long now her songs make me cry her voice is so “POWERFUL ” still, why, why. why is she doing this to herself, that is not love sorry honey I’m in mental health and that is plain sick!

  45. JarHead Marine  |   Posted on Aug 5th, 2005 0

    Like or not, if you are complaining about how bad the show is, then that means you have watched the show and you are boosting the ratings of this show, and as Martha would say, ?That?s A Good Thing?. You know I am a vet, and most of the negative posts are from poor trashy white people that still have not learned shit after 911. People are not taking your shit anymore! In the war, white were/are getting injured/killed also, by the way their blood was red also. The messages is simple, you and B.S. do not matter anymore!! We don?t mind and it doesn?t matter!

    Sincerely yours, and I do mean sincerely,

    One Bad Ass Marine!

    Bobby Brown has made some really good songs. Im hoping this show will lead to him putting out a new record with new songs as good as Roni, Every Little Step and Till The End Of Time. I think hes a decent guy and gets criticized for way too much.

  47. Barbara  |   Posted on Sep 28th, 2005 0

    I think the show was the bom.Bobby and whitney was so funny i call them the black adams family. Pop brown is so funny u needed to show more of him.
