Unbearable...

The Boston Globe's Matthew Gilbert writes an interesting take on 'Being Bobby Brown', specifically in relation to Whitney Houston.  He also echoes other reports in stating Whitney Houston as the star of the show.

Another opinion/review is that of Sid Smith published on Metromix which describes the show as being 'not so exciting' and whilst acknowledges Whitney Houston as immensely talented and arguably a legend, describes the show and her position within it as being a "numb, indifferent witness to her own life."

Other reports on the reality series, which starts tonight in the US, can be found in the Being Bobby Brown News Archive.
