Troubled pop duo may have lives
The Associated Press - ATLANTA
Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown have had a tumultuous
few months, with Brown in and out of jail and Houston checking herself into
a rehabilitation program.
But it's their reality, and Brown wants to bring that reality to television.
Brown's production company, B2 Entertainment, has been following the couple
around Atlanta in hopes of selling a show about Brown's life to a network.
"As I understand it, the reality show is about Bobby Brown. If she can help
her husband in any way, she of course will do so, but it's about Bobby,"
Houston's publicist, Nancy Seltzer, told The Associated Press on Friday.
Houston joined Brown, their daughter, Bobbi Kristina, 10, and the family dog
for dinner Monday at the Palm Restaurant in Atlanta's Buckhead district.
Houston was accompanied by a representative of her rehab facility, said Mark
Trigg, Houston's Atlanta attorney.
They dined on a 6-pound lobster, 24-ounce porterhouse steak and several
plates of Clams Oreganato, waiter Jimmy Logan said. Bobbi Kristina had her
own lobster and the pooch snacked on steak tartare.
The next night, at Prime in Atlanta, Houston sang "Happy Birthday" to a
fellow diner, as a five-person production crew caught the action, manager
Mark Pinsky said.
Houston, who is in an inpatient rehab program, is allowed approved
authorized outings, Seltzer said. While taking her daughter to school on one
of those outings, Houston received a speeding ticket Tuesday in suburban
Gwinnett County for driving 68 mph in a 45 mph zone, Gwinnett police Cpl.
Dan Huggins said.
"She's working on getting well, she's working on herself," Seltzer said.
