It was at an after party for the 1989 film “Harlem Nights” and both ladies were hanging out. Houston spotted Brown from across the room and begged her friend to introduce her, despite his reputation of being a crude lover and womanizer.
Harry also said she introduced Houston to comedian Eddie Murphy, who she was romantic with for a hot second.
Houston and brown dated for about three years and finally married in July 1992. Their relationship was publicly tumultuous with physical abuse and drugs.
By April 2007, the couple was divorced and Houston won custody of their daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
When Cohen asked Harry, who is best known for her roles on the sitcoms “227″ and “Sister to Sister,” if she blamed Brown for Houston’s drug use, the Emmy-winner replied that she did not. Harry also talked about the strong similarities between herself and Houston, how they both came from the ghetto and how their lives had been “accelerated” and when they tried to go back to where they came from, they no longer fit in. There was an inference that perhaps that was a problem with Houston.
