Whitney gets into her drug use – partially. I can’t help but notice (after watching this more than once) how she deflected the question and zoned in exclusively on ex-husband Bobby Brown. Not that we aren’t curious but….here’s the thing: there are times we suffer because of the actions of others. There are times we suffer because of our actions. When we’ve compromised ourselves we have no control over how the ramifications of those actions (choices) will play themselves out.
She describes a very volatile relationship that she’s only hinting at. While I have no sympathy for Brown I have to ask whether Houston gets to be “classified” as victim or active participant in her destruction. They allowed their daughter to witness their destructive behavior her entire life and that absolutely will have a negative impact on her without professional intervention. Houston has been very fortunate to have any number of people, powerful people supporting her and taking a vested interest in her success and welfare. I don’t think other women in her situation usually fare as well.
What do you think?
