Whitney Houston’s Family Furious About Lifetime Movie

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Drama, Cable, Gossip, Rumors,

Angela Bassett and Whitney HoustonWhitney Houston's family is furious about her new Lifetime biopic.

The late superstar's loved ones are "p**sed" that the Angela Bassett-directed film depicting Whitney's rocky relationship with her ex-husband Bobby Brown is being planned as a TV movie because they feel she deserves so much more.

Pat Houston, the "I Will Always Love You" singer's sister-in-law, told TMZ, "Whitney is certainly worthy of more than a television movie. If Whitney were here today, this would not be happening."

Whitney's estate has reportedly already informed Lifetime of their displeasure and is said to be threatening a lawsuit if the network refuses to cancel production.

The singer's loved ones are instead planning their own big screen movie in the style of Michael Jackson's This Is It, which they feel would be a more fitting tribute to the musical icon, who accidentally drowned in February 2012 in her Beverly Hilton hotel suite.

Bobbi Kristina and Cissy Houston

Whitney Houston's family are to star in their own reality show. The late singer's daughter Bobbi Kristina, mother Cissy, sister-in-law and manager Pat Houston, Pat's daughter Rayah and The Bodyguard actress' brother Gary will all feature in the programme entitled The Houston Family Chronicles, which has been picked up by Lifetime.

The series will show Whitney's family as they face the world without the "I Will Always Love You" hitmaker, who was found dead in a bath tub at the Beverly Hilton hotel in February. The network says the show - which will also feature Whitney's cousin Dionne Warwick and CeCe Winans, who dueted with the singer on her hit track "Count On Me" - will join the family "as they take on their greatest challenge, supporting and guiding Bobbi Kristina as she faces the world alone, without the one person she relied on the most, her mother."

Illeana DouglasFinally… there’s a show that promises to showcase celebrity junk! Where do I sign up? When it comes to celebrities, I must know everything—so why not see their junk too? is the network to pull it off, with their upcoming series , created and hosted by . Do celebs really have garage sales? Well, I can recall Whitney Houston sold a bunch of her junk and didn’t too? Douglas will uncover the best celeb garage sales in this unscripted pilot—well, at least her celeb friends anyway, which in the pilot is . Eh, maybe not such an interesting star for the pilot episode, but the proceeds of the garage sale (and in his case he raised $5,000) goes to charity. According to Douglas, “I’ve always been a garage sale fanatic, but the fun of a celebrity garage sale is that their throwaways become someone else’s collectables—like an to the stars.” I’ve always thought Illeana Douglas was okay, but her short web series Illeanarama was a riot. I think she’s got the right amount of spunk to pull off Celebrity Garage Sale. She has most recently been seen in .

Whitney Houston Preparing for Comeback?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Music, Reality, Gossip,

Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown The divorce is final, Bobby Brown is out of the picture, and the stage is set for the one thing that everyone’s been wondering: is Whitney Houston going to make a comeback? Half-hearted attempts in the past have failed, but now the songstress has a whole new reason to reach for the limelight again - she definitely will no longer be a part of Being Bobby Brown – or, for that matter, any other reality programming. So, Whitney’s warming up her vocals and getting ready to do what she used to do best: just sing. Houston is currently in the recording studio preparing to launch her comeback album, which early reports say are very good. Ne-Yo, R & B producer, is currently working with Houston to create some new tracks for her comeback album. Ne-Yo’s other clients include American Idol Dreamgirl Jennifer Hudson, who is also releasing a new album, and Michael Jackson.

Whitney Houston Wins Custody of Bobbi Christina

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, Gossip, News,

Whitney and Bobby An Orange County judge ruled in favor of 43-year-old Whitney Houston this week in the custody battle between her and estranged hubby Bobby Brown (38). The couple’s only offspring, fourteen-year-old Bobbi Christina will stay with her mother, who was reportedly visibly upset and in tears during the hearing. A prenuptial agreement left all financial matters neatly settled between the pair, giving them nothing to fight about but their one shared asset: their child. Now, even that is all said and done, and the couple will officially be free of each other on April 24, 2007. For now, Houston will hold sole custody of young Bobbi. The only other choice for childcare was Bobby Brown. Don’t blame the judge…a choice had to be made.
