Whitney Houston's Mom

Reality Show Could Launch

Bobbi Kristina's Career

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.

I think it's really unfortunate she looks just like her dad. Someone else said it best, "She has a face for radio." She's not the worst singer I've ever heard but there's nothing that stands out vocally for me.

I bet this is something "the family" has wanted to do for a long time. Whitney had been on reality TV, and she probably had the cash to turn it down rather than go through it again.

Now that she's out of the way, they want to cash in, in every possible way. No matter who they have to sell out to do so.

And they cut Bobby out because they don't want him getting any of their "earnings".

Where was this family while Whitney was losing herself in drugs and alcohol and prescription medication?

This family is so dysfunctional!! I suggest Bobbi is no great singer and is trying to ride on mommy's coat tail and we know how Whitney messed up!!!

Don't think a reality show is the best idea, she is definitely not in a position to be pushed into the spot light, especially with the bottle of pills you can see in her bag.

She doesnt have the charisma and her singing is not spectacular enough to carry her looks. She doesnt need the money this is a bad idea. Show buisness will eat that fragile kid up. Its already started. Why would cissy do this...fame killed whitney...I dont want to watch her daughter die too.
