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.

Maybe we will all get lucky Bobbi Kristina will get so doped up she will give a speach that not only embarasses her, but her Drug Additict Mother as well.

Bobbi Kristina is the daughter of Whitney Houston and it is her place to accept the award in memory of her mother.
When Michael Jackson was given a posthumous award, HIS children accepted the award in his name.

Pat Houston should be ashamed of herself.

And I thought the Jackson and Kardashian clans were the biggest media sluts. Wow.

Who cares. Houston is still dead from a drug overdose, BK has no talent and Pat a reality show of what. Of course her daughter should accept it. Does anyone really care. It's a token award anyway.


The Houstons are just as disgusting as the Jacksons.

This Pat had something to do with Whitney's death. In the last photos of Whitney alive she was with her and Whitney was drunk and high on something. She was meant to be looking after her and if she cared about Whitney she would of made sure that Whitney was not at any nightclub that night. Shes nothing but a leech and user and I bet she was probably getting Whitney drugs so she could control her and her money. Funny how apparently none of them knew she was using drugs again when she was with them nearly all of the time. Why should she be the one accepting the award? Shes not even related to the Houston family it should be her daughter doing this she needs to sit her fat ass down.

We do realize Whitney spent more time being a proud drug addict crack user than she spent making music. One decade of making music vs two decades plus wasted in every interview and every occasion. Her charity had not given anything meaningful in over a decade. Yet we honor another hasbeen for overdosing on a drug ****tail.

This sister-in-laws reality show isn't going anywhere no matter what this woman does. And what she's doing is disgusting.

Seriously these people have to go away, how long has it been since poor whitney has been gone? Every other day there is something going on about this family, Have they ever heard of mourning? FOR THE LOVE OF GOD LET BOBBI PICK UP HER MOTHERS AWARD THEN BE DONE WITH IT. If you ask me everyone is using everyone else. NO,we do not want a reality show.

I have a simple solution to the problem Bobbi Brown get on stage sing your Whitney Tribute song and then except the fake award on her behalf.

Pat needs to take a seat and let Bobbi accept on behalf of her mother. Makes sense to me.

Get a restraining order so that Pat Houston can't come near the venue and can't phone harass the people in charge of the awards. It's the only way.
