Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston will return with a Bravo Christmas special

Being Bobby Brown will be back, but only for a half-hour holiday special. On Dec. 21, Bravo will air a half-hour episode titled “Christmas with the Browns,” which hopefully has nothing to do with Whitney pooping.

In a statement, Bravo’s president explained why they’re bringing back the show for a half-hour, besides, you know, ratings-whoring: “Bravo couldn’t let 2005 come to an end without indulging viewers with another helping of ‘Being Bobby Brown’. This holiday special will take a look at how this very public family spends their private holiday time together.”

Judging by the press release’s headline, which includes the phrase “Bobby Claus,” that has something to do with Bobby Brown dressing up as Santa, or at least scaring small children at the mall.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
