Just months after Whitney Houston’s tragic death, the superstar’s family has agreed to appear on a Lifetime Network reality show centered on their lives.
According to the Associated Press, the late star’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina and mother, Cissy Houston will appear in “The Houston Chronicles” later this year.
“The tragic loss of Whitney Houston left a void in the hearts of people all around the world, but certainly none more so than her beloved family,” Rob Sharenow, executive vice president of programming at Lifetime said in a statement. “In this series, the multi-generations of the Houston family will bravely reveal their lives as they bond together to heal, love and grow.”
The series will follow Pat Houston, the late singer’s sister-in-law and manager, as she helps raise Bobbi Kristina. Execs from the show also promised appearances by Houston’s cousin, Dionne Warwick, gospel singer CeCe Winans and other relatives.
However Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina’s father and Houston’s ex-husband told the AP that he was not aware of the Lifetime show.
“I haven’t heard about that and I definitely question it,” he said. “But I know my daughter will make the right decisions in her life. She was brought up right.”
Brown said he had his own reality show in the works, one which would showcase his drug-free lifestyle and his new life, according to the AP.
Houston drowned in a bathtub in Beverly Hills, Calif. in February. Autopsies revealed that her death was complicated by heart disease and cocaine.
“The Houston Chronicles” will mark Bobbi Kristina’s second reality show. She previously appeared with her parents on the Bravo series “Being Bobby Brown.”
Sources close to the Houston family told TMZ that Cissy believes the new show will showcase Bobbi Kristina’s talent and help jumpstart her singing career. Houston reps said that Cissy also believes the show will “help with the healing process” by keeping the family together.
According to E! News, 10 episodes of the show have been ordered. An official premiere date has not been announced.
