Fallen R+B star Bobby Brown is convinced his wife Whitney Houston is on her way to a full recovery after a second spell in rehab - because she's determined to make a musical comeback.

Brown insists Houston is in exactly the right place to beat her drug demons and return to her chart-topping greatness.

He says, "I'm very confident because she's my lady and she's doing wonderful and everything about her spirit right now is just great.

"She's doing wonderful... and she's getting ready to start recording. Hopefully, I'll get the chance to work with her on this album."

And Brown insists he's with his wife every step of the way: "We're enjoying life again. It's a team effort. Whenever somebody is ill it takes two to make everything work.

"I just felt I had to be there for her just like she was there for me when I went through my rehab stint."

Brown admits a little of his wife's rehabilitation will feature on his upcoming TV reality show BEING BOBBY BROWN: "We were shooting during the time that she first started the rehab."
