It's Not Right, But It's Okay…?!?
This doesn’t sound like such a good idea…
Reportedly, the Lifetime network has officially greenlit a reality show following the family the late Whitney Houston has left behind.
The working title for the 10-episode docu-series is The Houston Family Chronicles and will follow Pat, Whitney’s sister-in-law and longtime manager, Pat’s teenage daughter, Whitney’s brother Gary…and but of course, Whitney’s daughter Bobbi Kristina and her mother, Cissy.
We aren’t therapists or anything, but we really REALLY don’t think that filming a reality show is the best way to cope with the death of a loved one…just sayin’.
Though previously rumored that Bobbi Kris would have a show of her own, one of the series' major plot lines WILL be the family coming together to take care of her, as she goes through life without her mom.
Lifetime's Executive VP of Programming, Rob Sharenow says:
“The tragic loss of Whitney Houston left a void in the hearts of people all over the world, but certainly none more so than her beloved family. In this series, the multi-generations of the Houston family will bravely reveal their lives as they bond together to heal, love, and grow.”
Supposedly, Pat Houston has been working with producers “over the past few years,” to develop a show about the Houston family.
“The unexpected passing of Whitney certainly affects the direction of the show. However, it is my hope that others will be enlightened as they watch our family heal and move forward.”
The series will have a total of ten episodes and will premiere in late 2012.
We apologize but…are you kidding us??? We don't really think this is a good way to honor Whitney's memory!! Though we are CERTAIN it'll bring in the viewers that the network is looking for.
As if Being Bobby Brown didn't do enough damage…we can only hope that at the very best, this new show will help Bobbi Kris stay on the right track.
