There’s a gossip gap regarding the late lamented Whitney Houston in today’s Boston dailies.
Start with this Boston Globe Names item about Houston’s parasitic partner Bobby Brown, who’s currently flacking a new book.
Brown: ‘I’ve had some crazy situations’
Bobby Brown will say what he wants, weird as it may be. That’s his prerogative.
In an interview to promote his new memoir, “Every Little Step,” the Roxbury native and cofounder of the ’80s boy band New Edition told Robin Roberts on “20/20” Tuesday that he had sex with a ghost.
“I bought this mansion in Georgia. This was a really, really spooky place,” he said. “But yes, one time I woke up and, yeah, a ghost. . . . I wasn’t high.”
Uh-huh. Then there’s some other stuff in the item that’s entirely unremarkable, as Brown himself tends to be.
But it was a whole nother story from the Boston Herald’s Inside Track Gal, Gayle Fee.
Bobby book blames Whitney’s death on lack of acceptance for BFF lovers
Bobby Brown, the Roxbury R&B star who was married to the late Whitney Houston for 14 years, reveals that the mega-pop star had a lesbian love affair with her best friend and longtime assistant Robyn Crawford, adding that if the two were still together, Houston might never have died.
“I really feel that if Robyn was accepted into Whitney’s life, Whitney would still be alive today,” Brown told Us Weekly. “She didn’t have close friends with her anymore.”
With grave robbers like Bobby Brown around, though, she’ll never really be gone.
