Whitney Houston
's sister-in-law -- Pat Houston -- is waging war against Bobbi Kristina because she desperately wants to accept Whitney's Billboard Music Award on her behalf ... and only BK is standing in her way.

Sources closes to the situation tell TMZ ... Pat is trying to force herself into the spotlight by accepting Whitney's Millenium Award at the ceremony in Las Vegas tonight ... and producers of the show are pissed.

We're told the show really wants BK to accept the award and make the speech on the late singer's behalf ... but Pat won't stand for it and is making life hell for them as she tries to worm her way into the segment.

Sources tell us ... the show's producers feel BK is the best choice to represent Whitney's legacy and they're convinced Pat is simply exploiting the situation to get publicity for her upcoming reality show.

How about having Dionne Warwick accept it...it's an award about talent, and she's the only other one in the family that actually has any.

The show's producers are correct.
It should be her daughter Bobby... not her sister.

Producers can easily fix this by grabbing her by the shirt collar and escorting her out the door.

Pat should sit down and the only child accept the award. This is the start of a long messed up battle between family members

and water is wet and the Pope is Catholic. Billboard wants to exploit BK, BK wants to exploit herself and the Aunt wants her 15 minutes of fame. Everybody is using everybody.

the sister in law is very suspicious to me, and she's been since Whitney's death...she was with her every night that she partied...she should let BC who is blood related accept it

The daughter should accept the award on her mother's behalf. Pat Houston will have plenty of time to mug for the camera when that shameless reality show debuts.

Who even cares?
Let the woman rest in peace, already tired of the family circling her grave to profit and be in the spotlight. They are a bunch of loser addicts - GO AWAY all of you.
