‘I’m not the reason she’s gone’

By Kurt Schlosser

In his first interview since the death of Whitney Houston, Bobby Brown exclusively tells TODAY’s Matt Lauer, “I’m not the reason she’s gone.”"bobby Brown"


In a candid sit-down set to air Wednesday, Brown, who says he’s “very much clean and sober from narcotics,” talks to Lauer about the last time he saw Houston, how he found out about her death, and why he gets blamed for her drug use. He talks about his relationship with their daughter, Bobbi Kristina, and addresses recent rumors and controversy surrounding her personal life. And Thursday, speaking publicly for the first time, three of Brown’s children and his fiancée tell TODAY how they feel about the media’s portrayal of Brown.

The Last Time He Saw Whitney Houston

When asked about the last time he saw Houston, a week or so before she died, Brown says the iconic singer “had this glow about her that was just, you know, incredible. I’m saying to myself, you know, ‘She must be … she must be doing really well,’ because she looked really well.”

Brown says Houston, to whom he was married for 15 years, “looked like she was in a good place.”

Coroner says Houston took drugs before drowning

Lauer asks Brown how he took the news that cocaine was a likely contributor to the death of Houston, 48, who was found in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills hotel on Feb. 11.

“I was hurt. I was hurt … because, you know, me being off of narcotics for the last seven years, I felt that she was, you know, I didn’t know she was struggling with it still. But at the same time, you know, listen, it’s a hard fight.  It’s a hard fight to, you know, maintain sobriety that way.”

Based on his own feelings and how she appeared when he last saw her, Brown theorizes that that one day of cocaine use — not the effects of longterm use — was enough to kill Houston. “It had to be that one, because that’s all it takes,” Brown said. “One hit, you know … it could definitely take your life away from you. And, unfortunately, that was it.”

Lauer pressed the 43-year-old R&B star on the talk after Houston’s death. “If I heard it once, I heard it a hundred times, and I know you heard it too,” Lauer said. “Fans, people who say they were close to Whitney, say her life went downhill when she met Bobby Brown. How does it make you feel when you hear it?”

“It makes me feel terrible,” Brown said. “But you know, I know differently. I think if anyone ever knew us, if anybody ever spent time around us instead of time lookin’ through the bubble, they would know how we felt about each other. They would know how happy we were together.”

Brown says the couple got a wakeup call from starring in the reality TV series “Being Bobby Brown.” “We looked at the bubble and saw ourselves. We was able to see what other people were saying about us, you know? We was able to see that our drug use had affected our relationship, had affected the love that we felt for each other.

But when asked by Lauer about the popular perception that he is the one responsible for getting Houston hooked on drugs, Brown says, “not true.”

“I didn’t get high [on narcotics] before I met Whitney,” Brown said. “I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all.” He says drugs were a part of the singer’s life “way before” they got together.

“It’s just … it’s just unexplainable how one could, you know, [say that I] got her addicted to drugs. I’m not the reason she’s gone,” Brown said.



In the second part of Lauer’s interview, which will air Thursday, the TODAY host talks with three of Brown’s children — Landon, Bobby Jr., and La’Princia — and his fiancée, Alicia Etheridge.

The children all say the public perception of their father is not the right one.

“I honestly feel like my dad’s a great person,” daughter La’Princia said. “He’s been my best friend, like, my whole life. If I ever have a problem with anything, I know I can always go to him. Likewise, if he ever needs to talk to somebody, he knows he can always call me and I’ll be there for him.”

Son Landon says people confuse his father’s stage persona with the real man. “I feel like my father’s always had the bad boy image. So, you know, they just keep followin’ that. Anything that they can take a negative from the situation, they blow it out of proportion and blame him.”

La’Princia says everyone makes mistakes.

“They don’t see the good part of him that we see every single day. Everyone goes through their ups and downs. You can’t be judged forever about one event in your life or just the bad decisions you’ve made, you can’t always be judged just by that.”

How do you feel about Bobby Brown’s view of Whitney Houston and his take on people’s perception of him?


Move Over Octomom: Mexican Woman Reportedly Pregnant With 9 Babies

"octomon"Check out my Youtube Intro

HOUSTON (CBS Houston) — Octomom has some company.

Mexican stations are reporting that a woman is set to give birth to 9 babies next month. That’s right, nine.

Karla Vanessa Perez, who lives in Coahuila along the Mexico-Texas border, told Mexican television station Notimex that she is due to give birth to nonuplets May 20.

“It’s very early to think of names for the 9 babies,” Perez told the station. “First I hope that everything goes well.”

Televisa reports that Perez underwent fertility treatment that lead to the pregnancy. She is currently being treated at a hospital in Saltillo. She is expected to have six boys and three girls. Total of 9 babies!

In 2009, Nadya Suleman captured the nation’s attention after she gave birth to eight children – six boys and two girls. Not 9 babies, but close.

Woman claims she’s pregnant with 9 babies after having triplets.

"Karla Vanessa"

MEXICO CITY (KABC) — A woman in Mexico claims to be pregnant with 9 babies less than a year after having triplets.

Karla Vanessa Perez, 32, lives near the Texas border. Perez told a Mexican news agency she is now carrying six girls and three boys thanks to fertility treatments. Aaah she really does have all 9 babies in their.

Her doctors believe she became pregnant just two weeks after the birth of her two daughters and one son last year. She also has a 4 year old.

Perez scheduled to deliver on May 20.

Mum’s ’9-baby pregnancy’ a hoax

Last Updated: 28th April 2012

A WOMAN’S sensational claims that she was pregnant with 9 babies have been declared a HOAX by health officials.

Karla Perez had said she was about to have the astonishing multiple birth.

But authorities now say she is not expecting even one child – let alone 9 babies.

Officials added that Perez, 32, had also lied about having triplets last year.

Perez had claimed she was to have a Caesarean on May 20, seven months into the “pregnancy”.

However Jorge Luna, secretary of health in the northern Mexican state of Coahuila, dismissed her story saying: “She is not pregnant”.

Reports had alleged the mayor of Perez’s home town Villa de Arteaga had promised to help her and her husband with hospital fees and with the cost of incubators for their nine new arrivals.

Perez had told a local newspaper: “I feel like I’ve been blessed by a miracle. I’m nervous but very happy.

”My Caesarean is scheduled for May 20 but the doctors have told me I must try to hold on for another month so the babies can grow stronger and don’t have to spend so much time in incubators.

”I haven’t got round to thinking about names yet, I’m just concentrating for the moment on making sure everything turns out okay.

”We’re confident it will, although I’m having sleepless nights thinking about how I’m going to buy things like milk, nappies and clothes for the babies when they are born.

”We don’t have private medical care or social security and my husband only earns money intermittently.”

A set of nonuplets WAS born in June 1971 in Sydney, Australia to Geraldine Brodrick. None of the four boys and five girls lived.

The five boys and four girls born in Malaysia in March 1999 to Zurina Mat Saad also survived for less than six hours.

Single mum Nadya Suleman gave birth to octuplets in California on January 26, 2009.

The six boys and two girls have gone on to become the longest-living set of eight children in history. They were conceived by IVF.

The 36-year-old ‘Octomum’, who receives £1,500 a month in food aid, already had five children when her octuplets arrived.

My Personal Thoughts On Having 9 babies or even 6 Babies.

I understand that their are mothers out there that are unable to get pregnant, and all they want to do in life is to have a child.  I get that!  But what I do not understand is while under going IVF, why on earth would you insert every egg that has fertilized into your VJJ knowing that the chances of all eggs or let’s say at least 9 babies eggs might actually come to fruition?  Do they ever stop to ask themselves, “Would I be able to AFFORD to have all these children?” “Should I burden the tax payers with this decision because I cannot afford to have all of these children?” Because folks it really comes down to time and  money.  To Properly raise let’s say 9 babies  takes more then a village, and certainly more then just one or two jobs.  And the ones that will suffer are the little ones.

So couples please think really carefully about how many children you are willing to have or risk just because you are so desperate to have a child.  There is more at stake then just your wants and desires!

Let’s say NO to having 9 Babies please.

To your Unstoppable Success,

Do you feel strong, healthy, financially secure?

Most business opportunity websites focus on money and success stories. What YOU need to focus on is deciding what you want to do, so that you will recognize it when you find it.

Are you too busy working to take the time to make more money than you need just to ‘getby’?   Will you be in the same position five years from now?

So you’ve scoured the internet for a home business and are now totally confused, how do you separate the real diamonds from the fake?

Most business opportunity websites focus on money and success stories. Do you REALLY think that you can:

    * make money with no investment of money, time or energy, or all three;

    * make money legally without selling a product or service;

    * make a thousand dollars between Friday and the weekend;

    * trust someone who tricks you into reading a web page with a dishonest headline?

What YOU need to focus on is deciding what you want to do, so that you will recognize it when you find it.

You need to learn how to be just as insistent as those scam artists. Learn what it is that you’re looking for, and never settle for less.

Here are some of the questions you need to ask in order to clarify exactly what you want.

What do you really want in life? No matter what your current situation, you need to look beyond those particular circumstances and decide what it is you ultimately want to achieve.

For example, you may have bill collectors calling you every day. Your automatic answer may be “I want them to go away, I want to be able to pay off my debts.”

You need to look beyond that. What you really want is financial stability and security so you can do what you really want to do, whether it be charitable, recreational, etc.

Yes, you want to be your own boss, regulate and schedule your own time, and control your hours and income, but maybe you also want to work with others who will train you to be just as successful as they are.

Do you want to market on the internet, sell, host parties, take orders, deliver products, handle stocking, inventory, or money collecting? Do you want to work independently most of the time, or do you want to work closely every day with others.

Don’t forget that there are many aspects of going to work for others that you may be overlooking because of current stresses or worries. Will you be content to sit at home alone in your home office day in and day out? Will you miss the commaraderie of conversations around the water cooler or over lunch?

Maybe you want to stay home with your young children. Will you miss having adult conversations?

What I’m suggesting here, is to look beyond the lure of the “quick dollar” and pay attention to the details of what you will actually be doing every day in any online business. If you don’t see it in print, ask! Ask those who are already working the business. Ask the owner.

Maybe what you are looking for is what is called the intellectual distribution business. It’s the next trillion dollar industry. It’s all about educating consumers about products and services that will improve their lives, that they didn’t even know existed; safer, healthier, more convenient alternatives to products and services they already need and use; it’s about wholesale prices, ordering online or on the phone, and deliveries right to their door.

Do you also want a system you can just plug in to, simple enough for beginners? Even if you know nothing about personal websites, live online conference rooms, or how to identify prospects interested in your products or services, you want to be successful and to have those tools and talents at your disposal. The Empowered Network WILL show you how.

You have the will to learn and earn, the persistence and the ability to follow directions. So make the decision to change your life and Join the Empower Network Today!
