Bobby Brown Not Getting Along With Andy Cohen And Money Contributed To 'Being Bobby Brown' Being Axed

If you were a fan of Being Bobby Brown, the music legend is revealing why the show ended.

The New Edition member has big things going on in his career these days with two new shows in the works.

The 53-year-old singer is now preparing for the debut of his A&E docuseries Biography: Bobby Brown, and the unscripted series, Bobby Brown: Every Little Step.

Although it has been a while, this is not the first time the "Roni" singer has been on the small screen and now, he's opening up about one of the most controversial projects he's participated in: the 2005 Bravo reality series 'Being Bobby Brown.'

During a recent interview with the popular radio show The Breakfast Club, radio host Charlamagne Tha God asked the singer why is his reality show Being Bobby Brown ended. Brown stated: “I can say money, I can say me and Andy didn’t get along, I’ll simply just say it ran its course.”


 The reality series showcased the singer's home life music career and hilarious family vacations

Brown appeared on the show with his then-wife, the superstar and late Whitney Houston; their daughter, the late Bobby Kristina; and his two children from his relationship with Kim Ward– Bobby Brown Jr. and Laprincia.

Brown let cameras into his home for an up-close and personal view of his life. It was the highest-rated Bravo show at that time. The singer’s show on the Bravo network was produced by Andy Cohen, super producer and Watch What Happens Live host who also produces the hit reality Real Housewives franchise.

Reportedly, Cohen and Brown could not reach a filming agreement after Houston decided not to appear in season two of the series. The couple ended their tumultuous 14-year marriage a year after the show ended.


Fans previously called Cohen out for not including 'Being Bobby Brown' and working with him in his series about reality TV history.

He later called this an egregious mistake, telling Phaedra Parks about the situation.

“I met you when you represented Bobby Brown and the truth of the matter is, Being Bobby Brown should have been in the celebreality hour we did,” he told her. “It was one of the highest rated shows ever on Bravo and it was incredible … however, one issue there, it is almost impossible to find clips of that show because the Whitney Houston estate has totally locked up the licensing for clips on that show and I don’t believe we actually would have been able to show that show.”

Brown's new shows gives fans a second chance to see and learn more about his current life

The shows on A&E also give fans a chance to learn more about the singer and his family.

No matter what happened what the first show on Bravo, it is now Mr. Brown’s “Prerogative” to do it again and his way with these new A&E shows.
