Yeah, that creepy new reality show I told you guys about yesterday, the one starring Bobbi Kristina and the rest of Whitney Houston‘s family? It’s supposed to focus on them coping with their loss, but also it’s going to be about Bobbi Kristina and how she’s such a star.
Whitney Houston’s mother is telling friends … she fully supports the idea of a family reality show because she believes the exposure will be GREAT for Bobbi Kristina’s singing career.
As we previously reported, the family just inked a TV deal with Lifetime to star in a reality show that will follow Whitney’s relatives in the wake of the singer’s untimely death.
Houston family sources tell TMZ … Cissy Houston knows BK shares Whitney’s passion for music … and she believes a reality show could be the perfect place to showcase Bobbi’s talent.
We’re told … Cissy also believes a reality show will “help with the healing process” by “keeping the family as one.”
Cissy also likes the fact that her “extended family” will be making money from the deal.
But don’t expect Kardashian-style antics on the Houston show — producers are suggesting it will have a more serious tone … at least for now.
Am I the only one who doesn’t understand how this show can do both things? Are they going to sit in a circle and talk about Whitney before Bobbi Kristina sings a heartfelt cover of “I Will Always Love You”? Or will they focus on how Whitney Houston isn’t truly gone because a piece of her lives on in Bobbi Kristina? Because neither of those things sound too awesome.
By the way, here’s a video that TMZ posted of Bobbi Kristina singing “Someone Like You.” It was posted last September, but I haven’t seen it, and some of you probably haven’t either:
She’s not horrible, right? But I just don’t think there’s any way for her to be really successful, not without a voice as big or bigger than Whitney’s. But hey, if you don’t star in a creepy, exploitative reality show in an attempt to achieve stardom, you’ll never know what could have been.
