But it's their reality, and Brown wants to bring that reality to television.
Brown's production company, B2 Entertainment, has been following the couple around Atlanta in hopes of selling a show about Brown's life to a network.
"As I understand it, the reality show is about Bobby Brown. If she can help her husband in any way, she of course will do so, but it's about Bobby," Houston's publicist, Nancy Seltzer, told The Associated Press on Friday.
Houston joined Brown, their daughter, Bobbi Kristina (search), 10, and the family dog for dinner Monday at the Palm Restaurant in Atlanta's Buckhead district. Houston was accompanied by a representative of her rehab facility, said Mark Trigg, Houston's Atlanta attorney.
They dined on a 6-pound lobster, 24-ounce porterhouse steak and several plates of Clams Oreganato, waiter Jimmy Logan said. Bobbi Kristina had her own lobster and the pooch snacked on steak tartare.
The next night, at Prime in Atlanta, Houston sang "Happy Birthday" to a fellow diner, as a five-person production crew caught the action, manager Mark Pinsky said.
Houston, who is in an inpatient rehab program, is allowed approved authorized outings, Seltzer said. While taking her daughter to school on one of those outings, Houston received a speeding ticket Tuesday in suburban Gwinnett County for driving 68 mph in a 45 mph zone, Gwinnett police Cpl. Dan Huggins said.
"She's working on getting well, she's working on herself," Seltzer said.
