Fleeing Bobby Brown

It's an age-old adage: the couple that allows reality television producers into their homes and lives to cull weekly A, B and C plots almost strictly from their individual character defects stays together, right? It worked for Nick & Jessica, for Carmen & Dave, Shanna & Travis, and Paris & Nicole, right?


Right. Whitney Houston's marriage to Bobby Brown survived his stint in jail, rumors of spousal abuse, a New Edition comeback album, and their well documented drug and alcohol problems, but it crumbled like so many rocks of crack in the face of last year's Bravo reality series, Being Bobby Brown.

Or so I assume. Houston filed for a legal separation from Brown on September 8, and a rep confirmed to TMZ that she plans to file divorce papers next month. The couple has one daughter together, 13-year-old Bobbi Kristina.

The only real winner here is Paris Hilton, who must be getting bored of Travis Barker by now (it's been nearly 3 days), and will, with any luck, be sitting on Bobby Brown's lap at Hyde by this weekend.


Don't try to fight it. You need celebrity gossip like Jason Wahler needs cocaine.
