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 does not have her mother's voice nor looks... She is very unattractive and should just get a real job.

It's too bad that she needs a "reality" show to showcase her talent rather than just having noticeable talent that doesn't need "reality" shows to showcase it.

If she was going to have a music career, she would have already had one. Clive Davis, possibly the most famous record producers, would have already signed her. Cissy sounds like a horribly greedy person. They sould just give BK a gun. It would be a lost lest painful than this road she is fixing to take.

Are You Serious    

Didn't get her mother's singing voice. You would also think after all the money Whitney made she'd fix her kid's freaking teeth. Oh, wait she used all the money up her nose.

what's with these showbiz families? Whitney hasn't even been dead five months yet and all the family wants is for the daughter to have a reality show. Such sad, disgusting people.
