Whitney Houston's Daughter Bobbi Kristina Gets New Reality TV Series

whitney houstonYou have to love celebrities. Always asking for "privacy" during difficult times like divorce or death. And then turning around and blabbing to the media about their difficult times. It was only a few months ago that Bobby Brown was pleading for privacy for his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, in the wake of Whitney Houston's death. But apparently Dad doesn't know much about what Bobbi wants, because she's going to star in a new Lifetime reality series about ... Whitney Houston's death!

The upcoming "Houston Family Chronicles" will follow members of Whitney's family, including her mother, Cissy, and her daughter, Bobbi. Said Whitney's sister-in-law, Pat, who headed up the project:

The unexpected passing of Whitney certainly affects the direction of the show.  However, it is my hope that others will be enlightened as they watch our family heal and move forward.


Is it just me? Do celebrities really wonder why everyone is always all up their biznit when they're constantly filming, Tweeting, or generally tossing their biznit out there for the world to chew on?

Pat is now raising Bobbi Kristina, and what else for a new guardian to do but put her young charge in a reality show? Of course! Lifetime says:

The series will follow Pat and her husband, Gary, Whitney Houston’s brother, as they take on their greatest challenge, supporting and guiding Bobbi Kristina as she faces the world alone, without the one person she relied on the most, her Mother.

Well, Lifetime got this wrong. Bobbi Kristina will never be alone. She'll have dozens of camerapeople following her every move. She'll have thousands of people Tweeting and blogging about whatever she says or does on the show.

I don't know, maybe this really is the only way the family can "heal and move forward." I'm not sure that celebs can do anything these days without it being on television. As Warren Beatty once said to Madonna, "Why would you say anything if it's off-camera? What point is there in existing?"

Do you think Bobbi Kristina should do a reality series?
