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.

What is wrong with these money grubbing leaches? They are as bad as the Jackson family. Just a bunch of enabling losers who try and make money off of a family members death.

Cissy Houston should be ashamed of herself she has seen that when pushing Whitney in the spotlight she couldn't cope, with downhill and sadly lost her life and now shes trying to push her daughter in the spotlight. This girl is very vulnerable at the moment and what she needs is family that care about her to look after her and guard her not someone pushing her in the limelight. I have been very surprised at her actions recently with her writing a book about Whitney and now having a reality show using Whitney's name. I know she had tried to help Whitney in the past to get help but maybe if she and that family actually tried harder instead of just thinking about $$$$$ she would still be alive today. Sorry but I doubt Bobbi would be successful as a singer her voice is average at best and not to be nasty but she cant even go with her looks. She might be Whitney Houston's daughter but she has not got the looks and talent her mother had.

Well I listened to her sing the whole song, so if it was terrible, I would have turned it off way before. I like the way she did it because I could make out the words and it was acapella besides, which is harder than with music.

I also think her teeth look fine, they give her personality like her father.

I wanna know what she really thinks of this? I don't care about her family. All I know is they're just using Houston's death to gain money and fame.

I hope he gets that gap in her front teeth fixed. Also, that she does not include that free loader adopted Brother that she is reportedly romancing. She does not need people who do not have talent.

I only hope that she can recognize those who are just using her -- like her Father, adopted Brother and step brothers and sister. Stay as far away from those people as possible. Listen to your Grandmother for advice. She knows!

She sounds like every other teen singer out there with a tiny high pitched voice but she's going to have a hard time with her look. Whitney's Mom better think twice about this because this girl will probably follow in her mothers footsteps. After all, she has the same crowd surrounding her.

Trying to cash in on a tragedy pretty sad and if you need a reality show to keep the family as one and help the healing process well then your just pathetic. I thought they were better than this.

Notice how Pat & Gary Houston and other family member's have not sat and talked to Bobby Kris about her NOT having any talent. All they do is kiss up to her.Brown Nose.
They need to use Bobby to be able to keep their mansion and expensive life style as does this so called loving grandma, yeah right..The thought of REAL JOB's scare's the B Jesus out of them !
Pat is the one who talked grandma into all of this. Pat is a player and as unhonest as they come. Pat has had grandma wrapped around her finger for year's.
If any of them had Bobby Kris best interest's, they would have her enrolled in school for the start of the next school year so she could get a real CAREER !! She would be in rehab now ! It's ALL about lining their pocket's. No need to worry they will all get their's ! The show won't be on long, people are tired of all these nobody stupid reality show's. It was a fad and now most people are sick to death of those show's.Pat & Gary & Grandma will soon get their's just give it a little time. It all takes time.They will pay for all the year's of using Whitney.

She's not good looking enough to find success with such a mediocre voice.
