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.

Dead, buried, ALMOST cold and now its time to make money off of it, before everyone loses complete interest....

Everyone thinks Cissy is just some old woman. She is a calculating money grubber. She has been looking for ways to make money off Whitney since the minute she died.

Ah.... no. Can't sing well. But again, isn't going to stop that creepy family from wanting to try to leech off another of their offspring.

Dear lord. She can't sing. That video is a slap in the face to Adele.

Some people will sell their souls to the devil. The love of money is the root to all evil.

If she were a cowboy in the old west, she'd spit tobacco through her tooth gap into a spitune, and it would go "Sput...... Ting!!!!"

Randy Jackson on American Idol would say "Sounds a little pitchy dog"

Are you kidding me? She cannot sing, she sounds shakey and who the hell wants to look at a girl who looks like Bobby Brown, get your teeth fixed girl and take some singing lessons. Another dumb reality show, where is the real talent?

Sorry, but Bobbi Kristina is too ugly to have a successful "career." Unfortunately, she looks like her dad instead of her mom.

OMG, she wouldn't make it through the first rounds of American Idol. This chick cannot sing and this show will be a train wreck.
