That's why they call it "Reality TV!"
6 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While the show itself is void of any substance, just like "Newlyweds" you have to wonder how much of it is blown out of proportion for ratings. If they were boring, no one would continue to watch.

And as ignorant as Bobby Brown may be, I actually felt sorta bad for him. Watching Whitney's behavior made me feel embarrassed for THEM. When she wasn't whining and complaining like a little diva, she was drunk/high and acting like an idiot! Whitney may have been beautiful and may have been talented (back in the day), but at the end of the day, she is just as "Ghetto" as Bobby. No one forced her to marry him and stay with him all these years - this is who she was all along and her publicists and handlers and managers did an excellent job keeping her image under control for a long time.

She's just like Mariah - you can take the girl out of the hood, but you can't take the hood out of the girl!
