Bobbi Kristina’s Engagement to 'Adopted' Brother Is Just What She Needs

bobbi kristinaBobbi Kristina Brown's brother-turned-boyfriend is now her fiance. If you are anything like me, your first thought was, "Ugh. Gross!"

I know they aren't biological siblings -- Nick Gordon was raised by her family as her unofficially adopted brother -- but still. It seemed odd. At the very least, wouldn't they feel somewhat related, at least like cousins? So it came as no surprise that her family did not approve. Their feelings are captured in the amazing teaser of their upcoming A&E reality series The Houstons: On Our Own.


To say they were shocked is an understatement. The sneak peak  shows Bobbi nervously giggling through the announcement to her family. "We're engaged!" she exclaimed. Needless to say, no one offered the couple any congratulations. "This engagement is unacceptable," seethes Bobbi Kristina's aunt Patricia. Pretty much everyone just looked disgusted and the family attacks their romance. "The family has me out to be a bad person," Nick lamented.

I understand how uncomfortable this makes her family. They feel the romance is unnatural -- to say the least. But I also get Bobbi Kristina's side too. After the sudden loss of her mother, she felt lost, as though she was in this world alone. Whitney Houston may have been troubled, but she was still her daughter's rock. And her father -- well, let's just say Bobby Brown isn't going to win any parent of the year award. And given the fact that she is the sole heir to Whitney's massive fortune, she is the perfect mark for a conman or some guy just out for her money. She feels she can trust Nick. He has been her only constant in recent months. That is something she clearly desperately needs.

What do you think of Bobbi Kristina's engagement to Nick Gordon?
