Anyhoot, you are absolutely right. Love can actually be the most toxic part of any relationship because it can push a person, or both people, to make bad decisions that they wouldn't normally make. I've seen it, and I have lived it, so you will get no argument from me on that.
What I will say is this. Whitney was a diva. She was incredibly talented, and also very beautiful. She didn't need Bobby to be "Whitney Houston", so she could have left him at any time. Also, the life of a superstar gives you more access than most people could even imagine. With or without Bobby, she probably would have ended up down the same path because of her nature and the nature of the business she lived in. To quote Metallica; "Sad but truuuueeeeehhhha"...
I watched the interview Oprah did with her sister-in-law who was very close to Whitney and I was reminded that we just see a very small facet of a celebrity's life through a very narrow window.
It was wrong to blame Bobby Brown, Whitney was responsible for what she did or didn't do. Her life, her decisions...
but what a waste of such God-given talent.
