The Word From Whitney: Pop diva Whitney Houston set the record straight on her alleged lesbianism and suggestions of husband Bobby Brown's womanizing in the issue of Rolling Stone that hits news stands today. "You know what? I am so tired of this," Houston said. "You mean to tell me that if I have a woman friend, I have to have a lesbian relationship with her? . . . People out there know I'm a married woman. I mean what kind of person am I--to be married and to have another life? First of all, my husband wouldn't go for it." Houston also insists that Brown "loves being married. . . . I'm tired of people talking about him like he's this bad guy and has no respect for me or his marriage."
