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.

She needs a reality tv show to launch her career?!?! If she was really talented, I mean come on her mom was Whitney Houston, I'm pretty sure she could've did something to put her daughters name out there if she was REALLY talented.... and I don't know I don't think I'd wanna watch a girl who is sleeping with her own brother smdh.

We have mama pimp Kardashian, now we have grandma pimpin Houston. As far as I can tell, no reality show has put the main players in a good light. Look at KK,Palin, Snookie etc....This kid should be getting any help she may need, not thrust into the spotlight! Oh wait, money is involved. How distasteful for the Houston family to be making money off of Whitney! They really shouldn' t talk about Bobby and his issues, look at yourselves!

Don't give up your day job kid, you aren't that good, just because your parents are famous doesn't mean you can sing....sorry, but that's just how it is.

Launch her career into what more drug addiction. Cissy houston you are a disgrace since you could not profit off of your one hit wonder in the 70's you have to try and profit off you drug addict DEAD daughter. And the worst is Bobby Kristina giving now a fake relationship with a person who is closre enough to be a step brother to profit off of her Drug ADDICT DEAD MOTHER. You people are as dumb as the Jackson Brothers reality show oh by the way didn't they get cancelled since the only talented brother was michael the same will happen to the whitney houston family reality show CANCELLED because the only talant was Cocanine addict Whitney Houston and she is DEAD.

What is wrong with this grandmother mentally? No one can "heal" with a camera in their face. Both Whitney and Bobby have proven addiction traits. Why set-up Bobbi Kristina for the media spotlight with their cruel remarks? The brother and sister-in-law riding the coattails of Whitney by USING and EXPLOTING her daughter. Perhaps Bobby should get custody now that he's newly married and give his daughter a chance to mature and make her own decisions. If Whitney wanted her daughter in the spotlight, she would have put her there. This sounds like the Jackson family exposing Michael's children for money & publicity.

Don't think she can sing but then, she doesn't have to because ... SHE IS A HOUSTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also - my friend's, cousin's aunt's sister's brother's mother's father's grandmother's granddaughter's best friend (*NO RELATION TO ME*) some how tried these money making internet scams and --- didn't make a dime. Imagine that!

If she was any good at singing Clive Davis Whitney's mentor would have already taken Bobbi Kristina Brown under his wing and given her a career like he did with her DEAD DRUG ADDICTED MOTHER.

Come on. The girl cannot sing. She should have been having heavy training since a young age like Whitney did--she should try something else. Like having her teeth fixed first.
