Whitney Houston discussed her rocky marriage to Bobby Brown, drug problems, motherhood and other hot button issues in her interview with Oprah Winfrey Monday.

Houston, according to Winfrey, talked in detail about her troubled marriage to the My Prerogative singer, saying she was "very hurt, very angry" and "horrified" when "he spit on me, in my face."

While not quite the second coming of Ike Turner (or Chris Brown), Houston admits Bobby Brown slapped her on one occasion.

"But he got hit on the head three times by me," Houston added.

One harrowing anecdote revolves around an intervention-esque exchange she shared with her mother at the height of her marital woes.

Houston told Winfrey, "My mother said, 'I'm not losing you to the world. I'm not losing you to Satan. ... I want my daughter back.'"

Houston told Winfrey her mother also had words of warning for Brown.

Said Houston: "My mother said, 'If you move, Bobby, they're gonna take you down. Don't you make one move.' And he stood there like -- he was scared."

The season premiere of The Oprah Winfrey Show airs Monday; Houston's new album, I Look To You, is in stores now.
