Whitney Houston's Mom

Reality Show Could Launch

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.

You people are so ****ing mean. I hope she does get a career and knock it out of the ballpark. Just to prove all the hatin' ass mother****ers what's up. And for those of you who are saying she's too ugly and knocking the gap in her teeth.. shame on you. You are what's wrong with the world and the reason kids are hanging and shooting themselves. I've had a gap in my teeth and never got it corrected because it made me unique. Madonna also has a gap.. but I think she may have got it "fixed" recently. I hope those of you who knocked BK's looks have ugly ass kids so you can see first hand what being made fun of does to someone.

This is bull! I hope Bobbi K. can read between the lines. Her daddy is not the only tyring to use her so is the Whitney Houston so call family including the grandmother. If Bobbi K has enough sense to break away from her father I hope she has the same sense to break from the Houston clan. If it takes dangling "you can become a singer like your mom" then they got you screwed already.

Is something wrong with you people? Whats up with calling this girl all these nasty names. Did she personally do something to any of you. I say all of you that feel the need to say disgusting things about this young adult that God bless each of you with a heart desire. believe me you all will deserve it. Please once you are bless remember why and this comment. It was a blessing to all of you that deserved it.

How about you guy enourge her into getting a college education, not once have I heard that Pat or Cissy have encourage her to go to school. The industry killed her mom why do you want her to get back into it ($$$) the music/tv industry.
