Lifetime Picks Up Series Chronicling Whitney Houston's Family image
Despite people getting annoyed with Oprahís shameless self promotion of her Whitney Houston family interview featured in an episode of Oprahís Next Chapter, 3.5 million people tuned in, which was big business for the cable network. If it did anything, the episode proved people are still excited to learn what life was like around Whitney Houston, and Lifetime is ready to capitalize on this.

Lifetime has ordered The Houston Family Chronicles a reality series that will follow the Houston clan, including the singerís mother, Cissy Houston, and her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown. The two women, along with other family members Pat and Gary Houston, and their daughter Rayah, will follow in the footsteps of the late singer herself, who appeared in Being Bobby Brown in 2005. According to THR, the show will follow the family as they deal with the hole left in lieu of the singer, as well as handle issues with her estate. 10 episodes are set to be produced.

This probably stems from a clear lack of empathy on my part, but I have trouble understanding why Houstonís mother and daughter will make for interesting drama after the popular singerís death. Interest had waned with the ďHow Will I KnowĒ singer due to years of drug use and an unpopular marriage to Bobby Brown. The death of the diva was extremely harrowing and extremely sad, but Iím not certain that means her family should bask in the reality limelight after the tragedy. Clearly Bobbi Kristina wants some sort of acting careeróshe recently signed on to TBSí For Better or For Worseóbut Iím not sure heading to Lifetime is the best way to go about it.
