Way to capitalize on your recently lost and excruciatingly famous family member. Cissy Houston and Bobbi Kristina, Whitney Houston‘s mother and daughter, are set to star in a 10 episode reality show. The working title is The Houston Family Chronicles.
The show will run in late 2012 on the Lifetime channel and will focus on the bonding process of Whitney’s relatives in their time of grief, with cameras following them everywhere but the bathroom? Wicked smart.
Other key figures will include Houston’s brother Gary and her longtime manager and sister-in-law Pat and her teen daughter who I assume is friends with Bobbi Kristina? Bobby Brown is not reported to be involved though I’m sure he’ll make an appearance.
Lifetime’s Vice President said, “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.”
…On national television. I’m sorry, I just can’t get over the thinking behind this. These people almost make the Jacksons look classy. Cissy Houston’s involvement surprises me most.
We all know how well Being Bobby Brown went – worse than Britney & Kevin: Chaotic and arguably trainwreck-ier than The Anna Nicole Show.
