I remember actually coming out of this hotel and her ex-husband Bobby Brown came up to myself and the girls, and he was like, “my wife loves ya’ll.” I’m just 15, 16 years old and I said, “your wife, your wife, okay!” So we go over and she was in an interview with this woman and it was for OUT Magazine, I’ll never forget it, and it was the first time we were mentioned with another artist in an article and she stopped the interview, sang to us, talked to us and was like, “Imma give ya’ll my number and if ya’ll need anything just hit me up, I’m Auntie Whitney, I’m Auntie Whitney, you ever need anything I got you.” Just the sweetest woman, you know what I mean? I called her and she called us and checked in and it was just amazing.”
