Too soon? Looks like Bobby Brown’s concert tribute wasn’t his final word about ex-wife Whitney Houston. The R&B singer is reportedly working on publishing a tell-all book about his life with the late pop diva that he initially shopped back in 2008. A rep for Brown told EW, “We do not comment on gossip and rumor.”
But it won’t be easy to get the book to a store near you. Brown isn’t exactly on good terms with the Houston family after making it his prerogative to duck out of the funeral early. On top of that, he signed a confidentiality agreement as part of the couple’s divorce, reports say. The two were hitched for 14 years before their split in 2007.
If all goes well, this won’t be the first time Brown invited fans into his home to get a behind the scenes look at his life. Being Bobby Brown, a Bravo reality show that Brown starred in and co-produced, aired for one season in 2004 and showed glimpses of his family life with Houston and daughter Bobbi Kristina. Along the way, it collected a surprising number of viewers in its short 10-episode run and even coined a catchphrase or two (“Hell to the no,” anybody?). In fact, the back-to-back premiere episodes averaged more than 1.1 million total viewers and became the highest rated Thursday program premiere in the 25-year history of the network.
What do you think? Is it too soon or are you hoping Bobby’s tell-all makes it to the shelves?
