No surprise that since Whtney Houston's death, anything related to her has been ratings gold for TV networks. There was the Oprah Winfrey interview with Houston's brother, sister-in-law and her daughter, which was the highest rated show ever on OWN.

Then Good Morning Amercia had their heavily-watched interview with Houston's aunt Dionne Warwick.

So it's no surprise that someone would want to interview Bobby Brown to tell his side of the story, and it's being reported that ABC is actively pursuing Borwn for an exclusive interview with him, to be done with either Robin Roberts or Barbara Walters.

According to a network insider, Brown "would be paid something similar to network licensing fees or something like that," which could easily bring in low to mid-six figures for Brown.

However, an ABC rep said that if the interview were to happen, no money would be paid to Brown; although it's a fact that despite network denials, it has paid substantial six figure amounts of money for exclusive interviews in the past.

Network sources also confirm that several representatives for the network have been assigned to track down Brown and his associates to snag an interview with him.

    How about we try a little fairness and understanding? Seriously, why shouldn't Bobby tell his side of the story? Heck, everybody else and their mammies are giving their opinions. And who can tell his story better than him? Well, it's my opinion that Bobby might say what others do not want to here. Consequently, Bobby could be the type of person who would not want to shine a negative light on his past wife. He could well be too much of a man for that. Heck, we all know someone's opinion is hard to change, but the fact is Bobby was the man when he first got with Whitney and he was not in the poor house. Also, those of us who has fought the demons of Drug addiction knows too well that it's nobodies fault except ourselves. More importantly, those of us who have been down Whitney's road, know very well the following statement is true--> "The person takes the drink (or drug), and then that drink takes the person". Which means, we are not the same sweet, tender, reliable and mature person we once were, after we imbibe a foreign substance. However, I think it's safe to assume that many people believe Bobby Brown turned Whitney out, but again, that would only be an assumtion, and it would not be the end of the story. Nevertheless, however you or I fall into our own misfortunes, it's our sole responsiblity to find our own road out. I am suggesting that may be the tone of Bobby's words, which many do not want to hear. Yet, on another note, why do so many of us hold contempt for brotha who have alledgedly committed a sin/wrongdoings against black women? Can a brotha ever find his way back home? Is forgiveness out of the question? I am reminded of Chris Brown. Some believe he is the devil who can never change. And I am hearing those same sentiments directed at Bobby Brown. I do not understand that way of thinking?

    Jess, Bobby is not a standup guy. He ( and his family ) used Whitney until they couldn't use her anymore.

    I think Bobby would talk to anyone for $$$$$$.

    For all the tea in China, PUH-LEEZE don't talk to Barbara Walters--that woman is "da debil!"

  • Nadine | March 15, 2012 7:34 PM

    Agreed.

    But it's too soon, lol. Go to Oprah, Bobby. If you're gonna talk, at least put money in a black mogul's pockets instead of Babs Wa-Wa.

    He shouldn't talk, period. He seems to be rebuilding his career, and it would only make him look opportunistic, eager to cash in on her death. They divorced, and it's no longer "his" story to tell.

    However, if he unwisely does an interview, he most definitely should not talk to Oprah--did she even reach out to him for 2 seconds of comment after Whitney made those crazy evil eye allegations during that extraordinary interview? Robin Roberts would be the way to go.
