You guys remember this story, right? When Bobbi Kristina was about nine years old, Whitney took in this 12-year-old boy named Nick. The two lived as brother and sister, and referred to each other as brother and sister, and then earlier this year they started dating, and it was weird. You remember that, surely.
The last we heard about the relationship was that they’d gotten engaged, but that was from shady sources, and it was all the way back in March. I haven’t heard all that much about these two since, but it looks like they’re still going strong. Strong enough to be fighting hard enough to wreck a car, drive it home, and then get the police called on them for having too loud a fight, anyway.
Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina was involved in a scary car accident in Georgia — DESTROYING the entire front end of the vehicle.
The black 2012 Camaro belongs to Bobbi’s boyfriend Nick Gordon — and according to sources close to Bobbi, Nick was driving Sunday night in Alpharetta, GA … with Bobbi in the passenger seat … when the accident happened.
The details surrounding the accident are unclear, but we’re told the couple had been arguing at the time of the crash — and Nick’s Camaro was the only car involved. No one was injured.
After the accident, the car was missing the front right tire, the front bumper was torn off, and the airbags were deployed — but somehow it got back to Bobbi and Nick’s apartment.
Cops went to the apartment soon after the accident for a noise complaint, but no one answered the door.
According to the incident report, officers saw the car parked outside the apartment with its hazard lights on — and it appeared it had been driven in a damaged state.
We’re told the accident is currently under investigation. Calls to Bobbi’s people were not returned.
I can’t tell if this is a classic case of a lovers’ quarrel or sibling rivalry. And that’s weird. Either way, how hard do you have to be fighting to wreck a car like this? Hard enough to reconsider your entire relationship, do you think?

Like Emily, I did not watch the Billboard Music Awards last night, and it’s mainly because groups like LMFAO won—twice—and to be quite honest, I’m not really into all that. What did I do last night? Well, I went to Starbucks for coffee. And waited in line for twenty minutes, because there were two baristas on to serve literally fifteen people waiting for their caffeinated beverages. And I don’t mind the waiting, don’t get me wrong—but by the time I’d gotten out of Starbucks and began to head back to my car, the thunderheads that were threatening to open up and dump on me on my way in had burst, and rain was coming down all slanty and sideways, and by the time I got home, I actually had to change out of my clothes because I’d gotten so soaked. That was the highlight of the evening, folks, and after all that excitement, I just couldn’t bring myself to be watching four-plus hours of 80% suck music being honored.
But this clip, this was different. Flipping through the channels last night after I’d watched my third recorded ‘Big Bang Theory’ in a row, I happened to catch Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s acceptance speech for Whitney Houston’s Millennium Award, and I have to say … this girl doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell in making it in the entertainment industry. That, and also, the award was a really nice thing to do for the departed Whitney, and Jordin Sparks is a pretty little singer.
Finally, I guess there’s only one question remaining that needs to be answered: when is Bobbi Kristina Brown going to drop the “Bobbi” and the “Brown” and change over to “Kristina Houston” like we’ve all been waiting for her to do? She might actually have the aforementioned snowball’s chance in hell in the entertainment business if she DID drop her douchebag dad’s names like a hot crack pipe. Which she should.

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.

Well, this is creepy. Whitney passed away only a few months ago, but it’s already time to exploit her family’s grief and cash in on it. Yep, there’s going to be a reality show all about Whitney’s family and how they’re coping with their loss.
Should a teenage girl grieving over the passing of her mom be the subject of a reality series? Three months after Whitney Houston’s sudden death, her family has signed on to do a reality series. Lifetime has picked up The Houston Family Chronicles, a 10-episode docu-series to premiere later this year. It will follow the lives of Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law and manager, who now manages her estate; Pat’s daughter Rayah; Whitney’s brother Gary; daughter Bobbi Kristina; and mother, Grammy-winning singer Cissy Houston, as they try to pick up the pieces after the pop star’s untimely death. The series will follow Pat and her husband, Gary, as they try to support Whitney’s teenage daughter Bobbi Kristina. In that, Pat enlists the help of her and Whitney’s inner circle, including Grammy-winner Dionne Warwick and gospel legend CeCe Winans. “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,” said Lifetime’s EVP Rob Sharenow. “In this series, the multi-generations of the Houston family will bravely reveal their lives as they bond together to heal, love, and grow.”
Pat Houston said that over the past few years she had been developing an unscripted project about her and her family with producers Tracey Baker Simmons and Wanda Shelley. “The unexpected passing of Whitney certainly affects the direction of the show,” she said. “However, it is my hope that others will be enlightened as they watch our family heal and move forward.” Jarrett Creative will produce the series, with Julie Insogna-Jarrett, Seth Jarrett, Tracey Baker Simmons, Wanda Shelley and Pat Houston serving as executive producers.
Whitney Houston’s family and especially Bobbi Kristina, have been a big ratings draw following the singer’s death. Oprah Whinfrey’s exclusive interview with them drew OWN’s largest audience ever.
Look, I love reality shows. I really, really do. But I like the ones about frivolous things, like cakes or pawn shops, or the ones where the cast members are in on the joke. I even like ones that are obviously scripted. But this show about Whitney’s family will probably be none of those things. It will be uncomfortable and strange and just … creepy.
Would anyone actually be interested in this show?

Last week, I ranted about how it really looked like Rihanna was the first pick to play Whitney Houston in a biopic of the late singer. I said it then, and I’ll said it again now, that that would be awful casting. Rihanna is not remotely in Whitney’s league, performance wise, and it just doesn’t make sense at all.
But try this one on for size: what if it was Bobbi Kristina who played the role of Whitney?
With reports Rihanna wants to play Whitney Houston should there ever be a biopic about the legendary singer — Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, is telling friends there is only one person that can play that role … HER.
According to our sources, Bobbi feels she is the perfect person to play the part of Whitney … telling friends that no one knew her better.
Our sources say BK feels that if Easy E’s son can play him in a movie, she can do it too.
So if such a project ever develops, the producers can expect a call from Bobbi Kristina.
See, this is a horrible idea too, for so, so many reasons. Bobbi Kristina doesn’t even look all that much like Whitney. Nope, it looks like she inherited the features of Bobby Brown instead. And just because you know someone best doesn’t automatically mean you should be the one to play them in a movie. Could you imagine? How boring would a Lindsay Lohan biopic be? That crack pipe would be way too stiff!
And here’s the main reason: I have a hard time believing that Bobbi Kristina is in any shape to do much of anything, much less this job. This is a girl with a bad drug problem who is probably dating and possibly engaged to her adopted brother. Also, her mother, who she was especially close to, died just two months ago. Who would think that it would be a great idea for her to dramatize Whitney’s whole life?
My final argument: Jennifer Hudson exists. Thank you.

Oh, to be young and in love! How sweet it is to feel the gentle kiss and tender embrace of your lover! How wonderfully, beautifully freeing it is to meet your soulmate! Who’s also your brother. Oh, wait.
Yes, we’re still talking about Bobbi Kristina and her blooming relationship with her adopted brother, Nick Gordon. And why wouldn’t we be? As you can see in that picture up there, Bobbi Kristina is sporting a rather large diamond on That Finger, and as you’re about to hear from me, it’s because she’s getting married. To her brother.
Whitney Houston’s teenage daughter, Bobbi Kristina, has told her grandmother, Cissy Houston, she will marry Nick Gordon, a longtime friend who’s known as her ‘adopted’ brother, even though the matriarch of the family is vehemently opposed to the relationship, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As Star magazine exclusively reported in this week’s issue, just one month after Whitney’s death, Bobbi Kristina, 19, secretly got engaged to Nick, 22, and she’s recently been spotted wearing a diamond engagement ring.
Cissy Houston is “absolutely heartsick that Bobbi Kristina has gotten engaged. This reminds her of when Whitney married Bobby Brown, whom Cissy has never approved of. Cissy has conveyed to Krissy how upset she is, and has urged her to have a prolonged engagement. Krissy has told her grandmother that she doesn’t need her blessing to marry Nick, and the more Cissy objects to the relationship, well that only cements Krissy’s decision. It’s just a very sad situation. Clearly, Krissy loves Nick, but she has just lost her mother, and her entire world has been turned upside down. Krissy doesn’t think she needs to wait, and points to her mom’s sudden death as the reason to marry Nick,” a source close to the situation tells us.
“Nick proposed to Krissy on March 10, and she said yes,” a family friend told Star. “Krissy said Nick is the only person she trusts in the world. They have a very deep connection,” a family insider told Star via RadarOnline.com.
Bobbi Kristina lives with Nick in Whitney’s $1.2 million Atlanta townhouse, and they call each other “brother” and “sister,” says the source.
Although he was never adopted by Whitney, she took Nick in several years ago after his father went to prison and his mother was unable to care for him.
“Nick took care of Whitney and Kristina,” his grandmother Maxine Gordon tells Star. “He’s always been extremely protective of Kristina.”
Bobbi Kristina has had several heated arguments with Cissy about the engagement, and the 19 year old has said “my mother would have approved of me marrying Nick, and I’m going to do it,” the source says.
Ok, I know, this news is from Radar and Star and therefore a little questionable. But you guys, you know who else has this story? People. And you know People makes it real.
Man, this story is just way too … I’m not sure of the right word. Icky? Yucky? Flowers in the Attic-y? Apparently Bobbi is defending herself by saying that this relationship is totally ok because Nick isn’t her brother by blood, and she “can’t please everyone,” which just makes this worse. I mean, I know it’s her life and all, but can someone get this girl an intervention, stat?
