Hoo-rah.Whitney Houston’s divorce from Bobby Brown will be final on April 24th with a court granting sole custody of 14 year old Bobbi Christina to her mother.

Whitney was emotional during the hearing, shedding a few tears upon hearing the judge’s ruling, and candidly expressing in public her thoughts on Bobby as a father:

"If he says he"s going to come, sometimes he does. Usually he doesn"t."

And so, after much, much, much too long (15 years?) and waaaay to many drugs and Goddess knows what else, it is over. It is over and she is free and many are optimistic and at 44 this year, the future is bright for Whitney.

Note that comparatively speaking, KFed’s reign of sh-t over Britney lasted only 3 years. But people have written her off already… why?
