Bobby Brown knew he had to write his memoir in order to move forward in his life after a series of poor judgment calls and tragedies.The New Edition star has opened up about his life and career in Every Little Step, and in the book, Bobby writes about his former marriage to late singer Whitney Houston, his sexual relationships and his substance abuse issues. The 47-year-old explains the writing process helped him heal.”I don’t think I could have (written) it 10 years ago, just living through everything I’ve been through and trying to move forward in life; I had to get it all out,” he told U.S. chat show The View on Monday (13Jun16). “Everything that bothered me, that was heavy on my heart, on my soul. I decided why don’t I just sit down and get it all out, so that I could move on with life.”Bobby sat down for an interview with U.S. newswoman Robin Roberts for a 20/20 news special last week (ends10Jun16), revealing Whitney, who died in 2012, took cocaine before their wedding in 1992. Following the interview, Whitney’s mother, Cissy, called the special “disturbing” and criticised Bobby for failing to protect her daughter during their 14-year marriage.
