Bobby Brown Interview Part 1

Bobby Brown said down with Today's Show Matt Lauer to finally tell his side of the Whitney saga and to clear up rumors surrounding him and his daughter, Bobbi Kristina. Check out part one below. 

On how he learned of Whitney’s death
“I heard the news actually through Ralph Tresvant. He had his phone in his hand and he said just got a text. And he pulled me to the side, and pulled me outside and said, ‘I just heard that Whitney passed.’ I immediately got on the phone and I called my daughter.”
On the last time he saw Whitney and her still using drugs
“She was doing wonderful. Everything about her was going on the upward. She had this glow about her that was just incredible. I’m thinking to myself, ‘She must be doing really well,’ because she looked really well… I didn’t know she was struggling with it still. But at the same time, It’s a hard fight to maintain sobriety that way.”
On wondering if there was anything he could have done differently
“I still say that today, Matt. Maybe I could have done something different to ensure she had a longer life. But, you have to want it. Some things just happen. God probably just needed her for the choir up there in heaven.”
On Whitney using drugs before she met him
“I didn’t get high [on narcotics] before I met Whitney. I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all. I worried about it when we first got together until I tried it. And when I tried it, for some reason, I have an addictive personality… I’m not the reason she’s gone.”
On their relationship harming Whitney
“Our relationship was great. I had 14 beautiful, beautiful years with that woman. I can honestly say that — I love that woman with — with everything that I am. And I believe she loved me the same way.”
On still loving Whitney
“My fiancee knows how I felt about that woman. My kids know how I feel … how I felt about Whitney. It’s not a secret, you know? I was in love with her deeply.”


Watch part two of the interview tomorrow when he clears up rumors on Bobbi Kristina and is joined by his three other children.

The end of the Breakfast Club is near

The Breakfast Club has been on air for 9 years this month, and is going strong with ratings, engagement, and seems to be adding new markets every month...but I think the end is near.
I sound crazy right? I know you're thinking, Tammy how and why would you think that a successful morning show would have it's future in the balance? Well, there are a couple of reasons, let's go through them. I mean this could all be in my head and I’m projecting, or I could have some legitimate points and the near future will tell.
Shock jock radio value going down- The Breakfast Club has been known for it's shock jock style of radio for years. Charlemagne says the most outlandish things in interviews, creates false narratives that he doesn't even agree with for hot takes, and Envy always goes against the grain and disagrees with the masses on any given topic, just to disagree. Podcasting is huge right now, put five people in a room and at least three of them have a podcast; just at the…

15 Black women that need to host SNL

Saturday Night Live has been around for 45 years this fall and has had a series of hosts, of all ethnicities, ages, and entertainment occupations. They've had hosts that are comedians, actors, singers, rappers, and more. Now, while the diversity has been decent...I would love to see more black women as hosts. I've compiled a list of black women I think would do a damn good job at hosting the late night show. Let's get started shall we...
Tracee Ellis Ross - Tracee is a no brainer and should be at the top of everyone's list when thinking of who should host when they are doing the planning over at NBC. Tracee has perfect comedic timing, which we've seen time and time again on Girlfriends, and now on Black-ish we’ve seen her transform into Rainbow Johnson, and also into the other smaller roles they play when they have episodes within their episodes, if that makes sense. Her personality is playful and fun, which is evident through her Instagram. So, she’s topping this l…

Grown-ish is a far cry from A Different World

When it was announced that Black-ish, the hit ABC sitcom about an affluent African American family doing their best to immerse their kids in the their ethnic culture while still enjoying the fruits of their labor, would be getting a spinoff following the oldest daughter, Zoe Johnson, as she headed to college people were somewhat excited. When it was pegged to be an updated and more current version of the hit series A Different World people were more than excited and the show was highly anticipated. We were expecting to see Zoe navigate life as a college freshmen, out of the sheltered and, low key white bread, lifestyle. We were anticipating seeing her explore more of her life after highschool, then it aired…

Now, don’t get me wrong, I like Grown-ish, I think it’s entertaining, but it’s a far cry from A Different World. I didn’t expect the show that be identical to A Different World, mainly since Zoe wasn’t attending an HBCU, so there’s that, but I think the show is missing the mark on …
