I caught the first two episodes on Sunday. This show is to Nick and Jessica what "Married...with Children" was the "The Cosby Show."

OH MY GOD.

I had heard all along that Whitney was always considered "ghetto" and I know first hand from family members what drugs can do to a person.

Man, nothing could have possibly prepared me for the two of them. Whitney looks a fucking hot mess. Why can't she take minute to comb Bobbi Christina's hair? Do we really need Bobby talking about having to extract shit out of Whitney's ass?!?!

It's like watching a train wreck. You want SO badly to close your eyes and turn away--but you just CAN'T because of your overwhelming morid curiosity. Anytime Bobby Brown looks NORMAL next to her--you know you squeezed the volcano a little too hard while trying to save the earth and are now in the "parallel universe of E-viiiilll."

Anybody else get a gander at this?!?

This show reminded me of the part in Goodfellas where Karen Hill is relaying the story she had heard at the wives' social about the one husband going to jail and worried about it happening, to which Henry replies that the guy went to jail on purpose to get away from his wife.

After watching this, now I understand why Bobby Brown has the need to get himself arrested every few months

I watched it right after Smackdown on Thursday. The opening bit where Bobby's talking to the two middle-aged white guys who have no idea who Bobby Brown is was really the best way to immediately learn what the series is about. It's sad seeing someone I had such a huge crush on turn out to be completely psycho - not that we didn't know before, but it's one thing to read about it in tabloids with still photos (or in my case, "have read to you") and another thing altogether to see it right in front of you when the video camera don't lie.

(I was talking about Whitney up there. I don't think I ever reached "crush" level with Bobby Brown...sorry)

I immediately went out to look for a good thread icon for the show and...must have lost interest, because I never did AND I never started a thread over here. Maybe I'll look later as I still very much need to replace the "Britney & Kevin: CHAOTIC" thread icon

One highlight for was Bobby talking about the difference between him and Whitney being that he loves the people and talking with them, while she doesn't, trying to play off that they're two huge celebrities who always get crowded. This while they're walking around and everybody's screaming "WHITNEY!" That's when I realized, as CRZ pointed out, that this show is more about Whitney's fall from grace than Bobby's trials and tribulations.

Speaking of trials, one surprising thing to me is that even with all of Bobby's legal expenses coupled with the fact that neither of them have sold well in a long time, they still seem to have a good amount of money. They also didn't seem to spend as much time with the kids, but that could very easily be the producers editing most of the stuff with the kids out of the show.

The whole "I had to dig a dootie bubble out your butt" thing was absolutely disgusting and idiotic. They both came across not so much "ghetto" as borderline mentally incompetent on that show. Very sad to watch, as I used to love that song he did for the "Ghostbusters II" soundtrack.
