    Not too much of a surprise; haven't they been doing the 'divorce bit' for years?

    She'll probably be back with him all lovey-dovey in a week.

    I wonder who gets custody of their drug dealer...

    Supposedly she went to rehab, though. Maybe she finally got a good sober look at the lew-zer she married.

    You know, for years I was just CERTAIN that Bobby Brown had ruined that womans life. Now, i am not so certain... I think she may have gone off the deep end and took Bobby with her. He is a loser for sure, but I always had him pegged as a Marijuana smoking booze bingeing loser. Not necessarilly a crack smoking dope sniffing loser. Ms. Houston may have been the instigator down that path...In any case, she was one of the most talented vocalists ever and I hope she can get her life together and stay clean. I wonder how their daughter is going to turn out...

    I'm not so sure about that. Before she'd met him, she was pretty much on the straight line, while he acted up.

    Bobby may have corrupted her but after all these years of marriage clearly she made some of her own choices.

    It was horribly sad watching the most talented voice in pop music in the 80s, and one of the most talented voices of all time, spiral out of control like that.

    Talk about squandering your gifts. Maybe she's had some sort of wake up call. I never understood that marriage.

    It's about time. I hope this marriage becomes dissovled permanently because it seems too crazy of a relationship to salvage.
