THROWBACK PICS: WHITNEY & BOBBY IN ESSENCE MAGAZINE...BEFORE THEY BECAME CEEPHUS & REECIE.

A couple of weeks ago I found a throwback issue of Essence magazine featuring Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown on the cover of its February 1996 issue with a caption that read: Loving Against the Odds. The love was real back in those days, yall! I had to remind myself to breathe when I first laid eyes on these beautiful images! They looked so normal, healthy, clean-cut and dare I say--sober and in their right mind--back then, didn't they? Who would've ever thought this couple would go from what you see in these pictures to becoming the R&B modern-day version of In Living Color's Ceephus and Reecie.

Click on the pics to see its full image.

LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AT THE CEEPHUS AND REECIE COMPARISON. Whitney and Bobby did often act like that whenever they were on stage singing together. As high as high can be.

Clear definition that crack cocaine does not discriminate. My grandfather would refer to Whitney and Bobby as 'Crack Superstars.'
