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.

So...this family needs a reality show to "keep the family as one"? And having cameras follow them will "help them heal"? That's crap! And Bobbi Kristina needs a reality show to launch a singing career? How about she get out there a launch a singing career as a singer?

What career????

As a massive nut job drug addict like her mom?!?!?

I hate reality shows. All of them need to be wiped off the map and those involved sent to a deserted island somewhere. Never to be heard from again!

OMG, Someone make these idiot reality shows go away. Can't the networks hire some decent writers to make real shows again? Honestly, I'd rather watch Sea Monkeys.

Shame on the Houstons. Bobbi-Kristina has no significant talent and the disappointment of amounting to not much in the entertainment industry is just going to drive her down the same path that her mother took, albeit for different reasons. Bobbi should have been sent to school and primed to rescue and increase her mother's finances. This is not going to end well.

Wow! Amazing!

Bobbi Kristina has absolutely no talent whatsoever.

P.S. Fix that huge gap in your teeth. It looks ridiculous.

Bobbi - stop smoking whatever your smoking. It is making your voice raspy and rough.

Maybe the money she makes off of the reality show will help her fix her front teeth. That is the worst case of "madonna gap" I have ever seen. Also, if you think this chick is going to follow in the footsteps of her famous momma, then you must be a huge Joe Dimaggio Jr. fan!

The only problem is Bobbi Kristina cannot sing, cannot dance, andis not pretty enough to be on TV.

Furthermore, she is not interesting. She does not have star power or any x factor.

that is all. Sorry BK. Love you.
