    Question done for

    Logan: What’s the deal with Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston?

    Amanda: It’s crazy because they have… They’re probably one of the most dysfunctional, unhealthy couples that I know, but you know what? They learn to make it work that way. They made a… They learn to make wrong work.

    Logan: It’s seems like it. Every time I see her in the news, he looks a little bit out of it, but she looks like she just went through a washer and dryer. She is just done for.

    Re: done for

    "She looks like she's been through the washer and dryer" means she looks disheveled, haggard, unkempt. "She's done for" means she's finished - there's nowhere left for her to go, nothing left for her to do. There's no hope for her.

    (I've heard that she and Bobby are getting divorced; maybe she'll straighten her life out after all. )
