Well just when you thought reality TV couldn't sink to an all new low after Growing up Gotti and Britney's Chaotic, Bravo will debut this show on June 30th. Is this a disaster waiting to happen?

Supposedly they will feature Whitney's stint in Rehab and Bobby's problems with the law.

I never was a Whitney fan (even though she was very talented) or a Bobby Brown fan ( though My Perrogative takes me back to 6th grade) for that matter, I will definitely check out the first show.

This might be so bad that it will be entertaining.

Bobby and Whitney Get Real on Reality Show :roll:

NEW YORK - TV viewers have peeked into the lives of Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, and Britney Spears and Kevin Federline. Now another celebrity couple is about to take the reality show plunge. "Being Bobby Brown," which features Brown and his wife, pop songstress Whitney Houston, premieres on Bravo Thursday (10 p.m. ET).

In an interview on "Dateline NBC," Brown said he decided to allow cameras to follow him for six months because "it's easy for people to just have the freedom to be able to say things about me, and me not say anything. That's the easy part. "But the hard part is to show them me, because I'm scared of being myself, sometimes."

Brown, a former member of New Edition, married Houston in 1992. He took off with singles such as "Don't Be Cruel," but progressively became known more for his drug and alcohol arrests.

On Dec. 7, 2003, Houston called police, alleging that Brown had struck her in the face at their home near Alpharetta, a suburb north of Atlanta. "Me and my wife play a lot. It was just a misunderstanding," he told Matt Lauer in the NBC interview that aired Sunday. "I mean, we slap box, and she hits hard, hard."

When asked if he hit hard back, Brown responded: "No, I don't. No, come on man, you see how big my hands are? I could hurt her. Huh-uh, no. Me and her are like this. She hits me more than I hit her." :shock:

How did the 41-year-old Houston, who recently completed a drug rehabilitation program, feel about doing the reality show? "When she saw how much fun I was having with the cameras, I mean, because it's like, I didn't change when the cameras got around, it just

This show was really boring. Funny that Bobby came off a lot more likeable than Whitney.

Just how long have many of us been waiting for this? Ever since I first read that Bravo was developing this show, my biggest interest (of course) was not in Bobby Brown himself, but in his wife

Bobby went from being a nice guy in the first epidodes to a total obnoxious drunk last night. His poor daughter was so embarrased they way he was acting in Harrods. Poor girl.

Being Bobby Brown

10:01 pm Why does Bobby want to buy himself an expensive woman's watch? Love that Whitney said no.

10:02 Still liking the opening theme song.

10:03 I'm concerned that Bobbi Kristina is punching her daddy Bobby so violently.

10:04 Interesting how, right after they enter Harrods, Whitney asks Bobby, "Why are you so loud?" and then screams "Bobby!"

10:05 Was it really necessary for Bobby to say "I ain't gay" after being told he looked gay in the leather jacket he was trying on?

10:09 After four breathtaking minutes of watching them go shopping, we are treated to the scene of Harrods owner Mohamed Al Fayed handing Bobby some "double-action" Egyptian Viagra. Yowza.

10:10 Nice close-up shot of a very sad-looking Bobbi Kristina. Perhaps this show should be called "Poor Bobbi Kristina"?

10:20 Whitney and Bobby's faux British accents sound just like Madonna's faux British accent.

10:23 Bobby gets embarrassingly drunk, causing Whitney to say, "If you drink one more ****ing thing, I swear I'm going to fight you!" Riveting television.

10:24 Whitney scares me when using baby talk to lure Bobby into their limo.

10:29 Drunk Bobby walks around their hotel room and can't get his dangling shoe untied or off his foot and utters this week's best line to Whitney: "Why is my shoe following me?" Whitney then looks at the camera as if to say, "See what I live with?"

Next week: Bobby goes shopping for a gun, and he and Whitney have a cookout. Oh, goody!

Yes, I'll say it: Tonight's episode was a real gas!

10:01 pm Bobby is having a "no girls allowed" camping trip, but even if the promos didn't reveal it, you just know that Whitney's gonna show up.

10:03 Bobby continues to expand his positive image by saying, "You can never have enough guns." Nice answer (after being asked "Why would you want to shoot a bird?"): "Because we gotta eat."

10:04 Bobby's father, Pop Brown, does the Funky Chicken (continuing the bird theme?).

10:05 Bobby, Pop and cousin Billy Brinson converse with each other in song.

10:06 Bobby Jr. begs Pop to "stop fartin'" and Pop blames it on the beans.

10:12 After Whitney calls Bobby to tell him she's on her way, he leans over and does a one-cheek-sneak. As I said last week, riveting television.

10:15 Whitney has arrived, and Bobby reveals his protruding stomach, causing Whitney to say, "He's carrying the baby this time."

10:16 Bobby and Whitney do an impromptu a cappella duet of "Fire" by the Ohio Players.

10:19 Bobby and Whitney get in the "yacht blow-up boat."

10:20 After whispering sweet nothings in Bobby's ear, Whitney rows for a full minute.

10:21 Bobby farts again, prompting Whitney to exclaim this week's Being Bobby Brown catch phrase: "Eww! The bugs that must be up your ass!"

10:26 Bobby burps and says, "Something's going on with my stomach."

10:27 Whitney, flippin' thru a celeb mag, wants to be invited to Beyonce and Jay Z's wedding and loves Jennifer.

Next week: It's Mother's Day, so needless to say, it will be one mother of a show.

10:00 pm Right off the bat, the mystery is solved as to why they are always in random hotels and not at home. Their "house is flooded" as Bobby explains to George Jefferson, I mean, Sherman Hemsley. Sherman's staying at the same hotel in Atlanta but insists on demonstrating "the Slop" to Bobby.

10:05 Bobby sings along with himself in the car. The song sounds suspiciously like the show's theme song and Bobby makes reference to his "new single."

10:06 Whitney vogues and then walks over to the hotel pianist and attempts to sing "Send in the Clowns."

10:07 Their dog Dukes gets his own seat at the table and Bobby asks the waiter for some steak tar tar for Dukes.

10:08 Whitney farts and blames it on her daughter.

10:09 Whitney pops Bobby's zit and then turns to the camera and goes "Eww!" Whitney beat me to it.

10:10 The exquisite class continues as Whitney thinks she might've sat in Dukes' poop.

10:11 Absolute highlight of this episode: Whitney sings along to "Shut Up" by the Black Eyed Peas in her car, completely doing it to the camera. After screaming "Shut up!" myself, I had to TiVo back and watch it again.

10:12 The promo for Kathy Griffin's special followed by the promo for her new series My Life on the D-List airs. Can't wait. I was in the audience for the taping of the special and hadn't laughed so hard in years. Just wait until you hear what she says about Oprah!

10:28 Whitney for the first time during this show is wearing makeup and has her hair done. What better time for Bobby to suggest that they renew their vows.

10:29 In the final pulsating minute, Whitney says Bobby has "had the runs since yesterday" and she herself has cramps. The waiter brings her Advil, which Whitney pronounces accenting the second syllable. Huh?

Whitney then announces she's "about to do the doo" and then puts her hands on her bloating belly.

Saw a bit of this show the other day. From what I saw' date=' and from what I've heard - WAAAAYYY too much information on bodily functions. Some things we just do not need or want to know!

[b']Ivy, I couldn't agree more! I haven't been able to watch one episode of this because I find it just sadly pathetic. However, you and I are in the minority because check out the story below:

Two episodes have been added to Bravo's summer reality series "Being Bobby Brown," which follows the lives of the R&B singer, his wife, Whitney Houston, and three of his children.

"We hope two new episodes will satisfy viewers' appetites for more Bobby and Whitney."

Brown, a former member of New Edition, married Houston in 1992. He took off with singles such as "Don't Be Cruel" and "My Prerogative," but became known more for his drug and alcohol troubles. "Being Bobby Brown" airs on Thursday nights. The new episode on August 18 will take an inside look into the couple's homes in Georgia and New Jersey. The August 25 finale will feature clips from the series and extra footage of Brown, the network said August 5.

After last week's poop-n-fart fest, there were absolutely no references to passing gas or bowel problems. I thought I was watching a different show. That being said
