In his first interview since the death of Whitney Houston, Bobby Brown denies he was the one who got the pop singer hooked on drugs. Brown talked to Today's Matt Lauer about the last time he saw Whitney, at a dinner with their daughter Bobbi just weeks before her death. "She had this, this glow about her that was just, you know, incredible," Brown said. "You know, and I'm— I'm saying to myself, you know, 'She must be — she must be doing really well,' because she looked really well." Regarding the drugs, Brown said he didn't introduce drugs to Whitney. "No, that's not true. I didn't get high before I met Whitney," He said. "No, I— I— I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn't the one that got Whitney on drugs at all." Brown said Whitney was taking drugs "way, way, before" the two got together.
For a moment it looked like there was going to be one less Kardashian show on the air after Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom announced they were pulling the plug on Khloe and Lamar so Lamar could focus on basketball.

The network is reportedly desperate to stay in business with her. The show will be similar to other Kardashian spinoffs like Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami. E! sources say Khloe is a "huge draw," and as one source put it, "We're definitely in the Khloe Kardashian business." Great, it seems the Kardashian business is also recession proof.
