Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Real House Husbands of Hollywood Cast Bobby Brown

It’s not like people won’t watch this and probably laugh at parts that would be considered high drama, but now comes word that Bobby Brown, who made quite the name for himself years ago on his previous reality show, is looking to get back into the business of reality by appearing inlala. The R&B singer was featured in a skit of the show on BET a couple of years back and apparently that applause and laughter has led to his casting.

Lala Anthony, wife of NBA star Carmelo Anthony, also will appear in season two and this promises to be epic viewing for all the wrong reasons.

Stay tuned!!

Rihanna Compares Chris Brown Relationship to Bobby & Whitney’s

For the majority of people out there, Rihanna and Chris Brown getting back together was a bad idea. The beat down that occurred a few years back could possibly be something that could happen again between these two. And even though many aren’t supporting Ri and Breezy hustling together once again, Rihanna doesn’t care. In fact, Rihanna is now supposedly telling friends that her romance with Brown reminds her of that between Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston.

A source told Hollywoodlife.com, “Their relationship is like the early Whitney and Bobby day. Ri was watching Bobby and Whitney’s ‘Something In Common’ video the other day and said ‘This is just like Chris and me. For real though, that’s the type of fun we having right now. I love Whitney. She was my girl. Can’t nobody do it better than her.” And that there relationship is based on “real love … like ain’t no bullshi**ng. The s**t is magical and it’s real.”

Real indeed. I can definitely see the comparison, especially considering Bobby was charged with misdemeanor battery for slapping up Whitney.

But got damn…obviously Ri forgot the part where Whitney left Bobby Brown for good and never got back with him.

Or is that still going to happen?

Bobbi Kristina Is Getting Her Dough

And then probably her blow too!

Her grandmother, gospel singer Cissy Houston, has officially conceded and is allowing the trust find set up for the only child of Whitney Houston to proceed according to original plans.

Previously, she was out to have it altered to save Bobbi Kristina from herself and other bad influences. Namely her adopted brother/boyfriend and her father, singer Bobby Brown. Because we all know that if she gets fat checks like this, he’s gonna be popping up to borrow some sugar….green sugar. The papers Cissy filed would have dramatically altered the pay-out of the $20 million the 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina is set to inherit. And if you’re like me, you’re probably thinking to yourself…

That’s alot of crack, booze, and weed!

As it stands now, Bobbi Kris will receive $2 million when she turns 21, $4 million when she turns 25, and the balance of $16 million at the age of 30. And now that you just read that last sentence, replace all the ‘whens’ with ‘ifs’. She is the daughter of two drug addicts, after all.

Let the countdown begin!

Show us the receipts!

Bobby Brown Arrested For The Umpteenth Time

If that’s not the face of sobriety, then I don’t know what is!

Now, what week could be complete around here without reporting on the family that laughs at rehab! And no, it’s not Bobbi Kristina (not this week, anyway, but the week is not over yet!), but her daddy, Bobby Brown that was arrested. And this time, Brown cannot deny the strong odor of alcohol on his breath. The police arrived quick enough to administer a test and I’m sure you all know Bobby Brown isn’t too good about passing tests…

FAIL!

Book him, Dan-o!

The LAPD arrested the singer on suspicion (ha!) of DUI.

Now, the timeline goes like this: Bobby Brown got arrested in March for driving under the influence. For that case, he fled to rehab, seeking treatment for alcohol abuse over the summer. Before that, Brown had a conviction in 1996. Well, there’s one thing I can say about Bobby.

At least he’s consistent!

And now I am waiting to hear from Bobbi K. Don’t let your daddy have all the fun! Go out and do some hoodrat stuff! I have a job to do!

Is Bobbi Kristina Engaged?

This seems to be the train wreck that just will never end. Not even two weeks after making headlines for crashing in a car with her alleged boyfriend, now comes more reports from sources that the daughter of the late singer Whitney Houston and King of R&B (rocks & booze) Bobby Brown is engaged to be married to Nick Gordon, who was informally adopted by Houston nearly ten years ago. Luckily, we have reality television to clear the rumors up on whether or not Bobbi Kris is indeed about to walk down the aisle.
Nearly a decade after Being Bobby Brown killed the image of Whitney as a pristine pop diva, now comes another show chronicling the famous family. The Houstons: On Our Own is set to air on Lifetime and will include Cissy Houston, Gary Houston (Whitney’s brother), and Pat Houston (Whitney’s manager) as they cope following the superstar’s death. The reality show is set to debut any day now and rumors are reaching a fever pitch. For what it’s worth, Bobbi Kristina denies she is tying the knot anytime soon, but then again, can we really trust what she says? As her mama used to say…
Show me the receipts!!

Bobbi Kristina & The Slots

No, it’s not the name of her new pop group. It’s what the teen was doing this weekend in Nevada! What do you do when mommy’s checks run out? Do you go out and hold up a 7-11? No. Do you get on Craigslist and barter for an EBT card? No.

You play the slots! Forget what the law says mandating you be 21 or over to partake. It’s a recession!

That seems to be Bobbi Kristina’s mantra these days, as cameras caught the daughter of the late pop singer Whitney Houston hitting up the slots over the weekend of the Billboard Music Awards. How nice that as the event pays homage to her mother, her daughter, who accepted an award in her mother’s behalf, may be behind bars.

Reports are that Bobbi probably did not win anything substantial, since that would require paperwork and even if the teen has fake I.D., everyone knows who she is. A representative for the Nevada Gaming Commission is reportedly investigating the incident.  If convicted, Bobbi Kristina could be looking at up to six months in jail or a $1,000 fine. The MGM Grand could also punish Bobbi K. As her father Bobby Brown might say…

$1,000 can buy alot of crack!

Bobby Brown Doesn’t Touch “Narcotics”

You know, it really is a wonderful thing when you can re-define the laws of society for your own crackerized version of utopia.

Look at The King of R&B (that’s rocks & booze). Now that Whitney Houston is no longer on this earth, Bobby Brown wants everyone to know that he didn’t get Whitney hooked on drugs.

At least not all of them.

But therein lies the crux of this crackery. Because according to Bobby Brown, grass is not the same as “narcotics”.

In an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, Bobby Brown had this to say:

“That was part of her life before we got together. I didn’t get high on narcotics before I met Whitney … I smoked weed and drank beer … but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs … I’m not the reason she’s gone.”

OK, just try to keep it together while I finish the story. We have identified the crackhead in this piece. Let’s read between the lines, snort them, and then soldier on. Brown delved even further into the new definition of crackery.

“I haven’t touched narcotics in seven years. I know she was struggling with it still.”

Ah, look. Seven is the new one. So the next time someone asks me how long ago I stopped smoking grass, I can say, “Seven years ago last night!”

So the next time you get caught smoking a joint in your car and the police stop you, try telling them that weed isn’t a narcotic according to the King of R&B, Bobby Brown.

See how far that gets ya!

Bobby Brown math is the new new math! If you start scratching your head and twitching, it’s because you smoked/snorthed/inhaled the new math!

Bobby Brown Says He’s Been Off Narcotics For Seven Years

It doesn’t mean he’s not doing other drugs. Ahem.

Bobby Brown was on the Today Show this morning chatting with Matt Lauer about his ex Whitney Houston’s death. And let me just say, he is not taking responsibility for her death or for turning her onto drugs. I don’t blame him. He didn’t FORCE the woman to do the snort snort or the puff puff.

During the interview he did tell Lauer that Whit was doing narcotics WAY before they even married. “I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all. It’s just unexplainable how one could, you know, (say that I) got her addicted to drugs. I’m not the reason she’s gone.”

Believe it or not, Bobby is clean and he said he has been sober for quite some time now. So to hear that Whit was using still devastated him.

He goes on to say, “I was hurt. I was hurt … because, you know, me being off of narcotics for the last seven years, I felt that she was, you know, I didn’t know she was struggling with it still. But at the same time, you know, listen, it’s a hard fight. It’s a hard fight to, you know, maintain sobriety that way.”

And he professed his undying love for Whit. “I can honestly say that I love that woman with everything that I am. We wouldn’t have been able to make the most beautiful girl in the world without love. And that’s the truth.”

The second part of the interview airs tomorrow morning on Today.

REPORT: Bobbi Kristina Starring In Tyler Perry Sitcom

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bobbi Kristina may still be grieving after the untimely death of her mother, legendary songstress Whitney Houston. And now she has the crazy stunts of her father Bobby Brown, who was just arrested for a DUI, to deal with. However, she is still moving forward with her life, and could possibly be hitting TV sets across the country soon!

Reports are that famed director and actor, Tyler Perry, has given Bobbi Kris a a role on his sitcomFor Better or For Worse, which has been picked up for a 2nd season on TBS.

Last month, the network ordered 35 more episodes of the series and it’s scheduled to air starting in July 2012. The series stars Tasha Smith (Angela) and Michael Jai White (Marcus) and is based on Tyler’s 2007 film Why Did I Get Married? and the 2010 sequel Why Did I Get Married Too? Tasha’s character, Angela, owns her own beauty salon, and Tyler has supposedly casted Bobbi Kristina in a recurring role as one of the stylists at the shop.

The upcoming actress has apparently been spotted coming and going from Tyler Perry’s Atlanta Studios for a few weeks now, with her brother/boy toy Nick Gordon right by her side. Whitney’s manager/sister-in-law/best friend and aunt to Bobbi Kris, Pat Houston, has also been seen at the studio.

This should be big! I definitely want to see if Bobbi Kristina got the acting genes from her mom. Who knows? This may open the door for some other big opportunities. It’s good of Tyler to give her a chance, possibly to keep her out of trouble and on the right path to her dreams of being an actress and singer. Don’t blow it girl!

Cissy Houston Thinks Bobby Brown’s DUI arrest Further Proves He’s A Douchebag Dad!

Cissy Houston is said to be on a gawd damn rampage now that Bobby Brown got busted with a DUI. TMZ is reporting that the mother of the late Whitney is on a mission to make sure that Bobbi Kristina stays the hell away from her corrupt father.

The website reports:

Whitney Houston‘s mother believes Bobby Brown‘s DUI arrest proves what she’s been telling people all along … he’s just a bad dude.

Sources close to Cissy Houston tell us … she’s always felt Bobby was a cancer … who infected Whitney’s life with negative influences.

We’re told Cissy felt “vindicated” when she found out Bobby was arrested for driving drunk on Monday afternoon … and believes the incident is exactly why she wants Bobby to “keep his distance” from his daughter Bobbi Kristina.

The Houstons believe Bobbi K has been in a “vulnerable place” since Whitney passed … and as one source puts it, “This is the last person she needs to be around.”

Instead, we’re told Cissy wants Bobbi Kristina to hang around “positive mentors” … like Clive Davis.

I get that. Bobby Brown is effed up but I have a really hard time believing that Cissy Houston is going around to various media outlets talking trash about Bobby and running her mouth to TMZ.

I’m pretty sure Cissy has better things to do. It would honestly shock the crap out of me if she was shocked that Bobby got his butt arrested for drinking under the influence. Seriously.

Bobby Brown Arrested For DUI!

Bobby Brown was arrested! How come this is some news that doesn’t quite surprise? Ohhhhh. Now I know. This guy has been arrested just as many, if not more times than Freckles (or so it seems like it)!

So here’s the story. Apparently Brown got his butt busted for DUI and cops believe that Bobby was drunk at the time of his arrest.

TMZ is reporting that Brown is said to have been pulled over in Reseda, California, at 12:20 p.m. PT for allegedly driving while talking on a cell phone. It’s not known what substance police believe Brown had been using before getting behind the wheel, but law-enforcement sources told the website the singer was taken into custody at a Van Nuys jail.

If this guy is boozing while behind the wheel, he’s boozing big time at his home and on the road. The guy is mourning his ex love, for crying out loud.

Brown already has a DUI conviction that he got in 1996 after being arrested in Georgia. He did serve 8 days. So I think it is safe to say, he probably will get a hefty fine and/or more than 8 days jail time. But then again, this IS California.

Bobby Brown’s Sister Leolah Says Ray J Was Whitney’s Drug Runner!

Bobby Brown’s sister Leolah Brown has something to say (yes, again). Girlfriend stopped by Dr. Drew’s talk show to discuss the death of Whitney Houston. And let me just say, after this interview I can tell you Ray J is effing pissed.

Now that the toxicology reports have indicated that Whitney Houston had cocaine in her system at the time of her death, Leolah is saying that Brandy’s brother Ray-J is to blame…for not only supplying the coke but for also KILLING Whit!

Get this, Leolah is saying that with her own got damn eyes she saw Ray J leaving Houston’s hotel room on the night of her death in February!

She told Dr. Drew, “I saw Ray J coming out of the hotel, hiding his head, being pushed into the car. Why? I looked and I said, ‘why is he hiding his face?’ He’s always trying to show his face when he’s around Whitney. Why now? Why are you trying to hide now Ray J?”

Leolah even went on to say that Ray J was never Houston’s boyfriend, but rather her drug “runner boy”.

And Ray J’s rep was quick to respond to this madness telling TMZ that Ray had no effing clue that Whit was using again and is furious that he is being pinned down as Whit’s enabler and killer.

Bobbi Kristina Brown Doesn’t Want to Be Bobbi or A Brown

Bobbi Kristina Brown is sick of being associated with the Brown name…as in her father Bobby. Years of drama and living in a destructive household back in the day with her quarreling and drugged up parents didn’t help matters. But Bobbi Kris is blaming her hot mess dad and his drama on ruining the family name and so, she wants to separate herself from it! I don’t blame her, but why now?

TMZ is reporting that Bobbi Kris has been wanting to change her name for years but her mama wouldn’t let her. Now that her mama is gone, she wants to go ahead and make the change to Kristina Houston. Girlfriend still can’t let go of that rebellious streak can she? Mama’s gone, she gonna do what she wants, y’all.

Apparently Bobbi Kris made this decision with a sober mind. See now, that is important because gawd knows we wouldn’t want her to make rash decisions without thinking them through while under the influence, stoned out of her mind or hopped up on Red Bull because Bobbi Kris surely wouldn’t do that.

At any rate it’s going to be damn hard for any of us to call her Kristina. She’s always been known to us as little Bobbi Kris.

REPORT: Bobby Brown to pen Tell-all Book about Whitney Houston

Do you see those dollar signs in Bobby’s eyes, people? Rumor has it that Bobby Brown is thinking of writing a tell-all book about his ex-wife Whitney Houston. And why wouldn’t he, right? Eye roll. We all know he is short on cash and now is a good a time as any. IF he did decide to pen a book I certainly hope he would keep it tasteful and not share their times of stokin’ and jokin’.

Our friends at Radaronline.com are saying that

this isn’t the first time he’s planned the release of a tell-all book — in 2008 he had a book ready about his life with ex-wife Whitney that was never published. “Back in 2008, the interest in a book on Whitney Houston wasn’t that great. Whitney had fallen off the radar back then,” one publisher told the site. “But now, following her tragic death, the market has changed. Now is the time for a book that details an honest look into the life of Whitney.”

The only glitch may be the confidentiality agreement Bobby signed following his divorce with the I Will Always Love You singer, but sources tell Huffington Post’s Rob Shuter that he’s determined to get it out in return for a hefty paycheck.

“This is a man who left his ex-wife’s funeral because he didn’t like his seats and went to a paying gig that night,” a friend of Whitney’s said.

“He didn’t get on stage that night because he needed to sing his greatest hits or because Whitney would have wanted him to entertain his fans, he did it to get a paycheck — the same reason he now wants to write a tell-all book.”

Well certainly everything he does from here on out will because Whitney told him to…or Whitney would have wanted him to. Bitch, please. This guy has his own issues and I really hope that he doesn’t go this route UNLESS he gives a portion or ALL profits to his daughter or to charity.

But really would you be surprised if Bobby found himself a ghostwriter and put together a book for profit? Nothing surprises ME anymore, let me tell you that.

Meanwhile, Radaronline.com is reporting that the cause of Whitney’s death could very well be a lethal concoction of Valium, Xanax and alcohol.

A source told the site that, “Whitney had taken Valium, Xanax, and alcohol, which led to her death. The coroner is waiting on final toxicology results to determine which one of the three was the major contributing factor of her demise. The coroner will be closely examining Whitney’s blood alcohol content at the time she died as well. The sedatives and alcohol will almost certainly be the cause of death, and not drowning. Her heart stopped beating because her respiratory system was suppressed because of the anti-anxiety meds, and combined with the booze it probably happened very quickly before she was found partially submerged in the bathtub.”
