    Bobby Brown's Whitney Houston Tell-All? Source: "Completely Self-Serving!"

    Bobbi Kristina wanted to partake in Oprah's televised special because—she said—she wanted people to know the truth about Whitney Houston, saying, "She wasn't only a mother, she was a best friend."

    A touching memory, of course. But Whitney's ex-husband and recent headline generator Bobby Brown might be opening up and sharing secrets about the late songstress for the wrong reasons. And, sources close to Whitney worry the full story might not be a priority either:

    Of course, this all refers to the possibility of Bobby peddling a "memoir" (one that he had tried to sell a few years ago to no avail, but which publishers would surely have more interest in following Whitney's death).

    "He's not going to address anything that will cast him in a negative light," a source close to Camp Whitney tells us about rumors of a tell-all. "And that's why people, I don't think, will buy the book. They're going to see that it will most likely be completely self-serving."

    Leaving many to wonder whether he was more concerned with the sizable paycheck he'd surely receive for spilling secrets or how this might affect his sometimes estranged daughter, Bobbi?

    Our source continues, "What great revelations is he going to have in this book?"

    If you believe Patricia Houston, Whitney's sister-in-law—who told Oprah that it was Whitney's "lifestyle" and not drugs that led to her death—there are still some Houston-related revelations to come to light.

    But we think a season's worth of Being Bobby Brown was enough for us—no tell-all needed. And we hear that there's a road block that could legally prevent Bobby from writing anything anyway:

    "Don't forget he signed the confidentiality agreement [when he and Whitney divorced]," our insider explains. "He may have to get somebody else to write it. A ghostwriter. What am I saying? He's not going to be writing it anyway, of course he'll get somebody else to do it."

    Whether he writes it or not, we want to know whether you'd be reading: Do you want to hear what Bobby Brown has to say about his ex-wife, or are you happy to have Whitney's legacy preserved in her tunes instead of a tell-all? Sound off in the comments!
