I was hugging them, we were laughing, and I kept hitting Bobby in the back of the head,” said Houston. “Robyn said, ‘Whitney, you keep hittin’ Bobby, he’s goin’ to be mad at you.’ I leaned over and said, ‘Bobby, I’m so sorry.’ And he turned around and looked at me like ‘Yeah, well just don’t let it happen again.’ And I was like ‘Oooooh, this guy doesn’t like me'”.The two obviously moved past their awkward meet-cute and married in July of 1992.
