Whitney Houston's Mom

Reality Show Could Launch

Bobbi Kristina's Career

EXCLUSIVE

0511_cissy_houston_bobbi_kristina
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.

"Launch her career"
How about this idea is so bad it will launch her into the grave with her Momma?

The last thing Bobbie needs is a reality show - she needs something else that begins with "Re" and that's Rehab. Shame on her family for putting their want of fame and money over her life.

TMZ I can't vote on the first page. If there is more than one page I can click back and then forward again, but if there is only one page I have to wait for a second page. Please help!

Why do so many pseudo-celeb relatives think that they are so interesting that people would want to watch the stupid crap they do all the time. Bobbie... you're mother was Whitney Houston... if you don't have a singer career by now... you're never going to have one. Displaying your obvious issues on TV is only going to make you a laughing stock...

I wish her all the best. She seems like a nice girl, and I know her mom would want her to be happy and successful.

In other words they have to get off their asses and get a job now that the Whitney gravy train has come to an end. They are capitalizing off of Whitney's death which makes them just as disgusting as those they accused of selling her coffin photo, They are no different. SMH.

Worst idea ever, but what does Cissy care so long as the check clears? Isn't this how they killed Nippy?

Talk about riding on the coattails of your talented parents, or in this case her mother. I personally don't like her version of this song and I feel very sorry for her right now. People do some crazy things during the mourning process and I think she is being taken advantage of by her family. I hope she makes it out OK. Although I can just see it already, being bobby brown all over again. Sad.

"Reality Show Could Launch Bobbi Kristina's Career" Yeah? So could a nice vocational school...and it'd be more realistic AND a heck of a lot less demeaning than trading on your dead mothers name for your 15 minutes of fame.
