The show aired on Bravo and was produced by Real Housewives franchise producer Andy Cohen. Speaking on why the program ended, Bobby Brown stated:
“I can say money issues, I can say me and Andy didn’t get along….I’ll simply just say it ran its course.”

Being Bobby Brown followed the New Edition members life as a recording artist, and featured then wife, superstar songstress Whitney Houston, their daughter Bobbi Kristina, and Bobby’s children from his previous relationship with Kim Ward, Bobby Jr. and LaPrincia. The program showcased the family’s home life, extravagant shopping excursions, and vacationing in the Bahamas.
Though the series only ran one season, it brought in Bravo’s highest rating for a TV series at the time. Reportedly, Bobby and producer Andy Cohen couldn’t reach a filming agreement after Whitney declined to appear on season 2. The “Greatest Love Of All” artist likely forfeited a second appearance, due to her tumultuous relationship with Bobby. The musicians ended their infamous 14-year-marriage, just two years after the show ended.
Bobby is currently on a press run for his upcoming A&E docu series, Biography: Bobby Brown, set to air on Monday, May 30th. During an earlier press interview, the “My Prerogative” singers current wife, Alicia Brown, gave some insight into Bobby and Whitney’s wedding day. According to Alicia, her future husband was experiencing cold feet the day he wedded the “I Will Always Love You” singer. She stated:
“All of his groomsmen and his brother could not get him out the bathroom, so I was like, ‘Listen! We’re getting this show on the road. We’re here and this is happening.’”
Alicia continued, declaring that she was actually able to talk Bobby out of the bathroom stating:
“For some reason he listens to me and he eventually came out the bathroom and went down that aisle.”
