Cissy Houston NOT Supporting Biopic of Whitney

Posted: July 24, 2014 in Uncategorized

Cissy Houston will not be supporting the Lifetime biopic about her daughter Whitney Houston’s life. Her main reason is because Lifetime as she said did not ask any other the family to be involved.

This is what she had to say about (reported to Entertainment Tonight):

“No one connected with this movie knew Whitney or anything about her relationship with Bobby,” she said. “In the two years since Whitney’s death, many people have stepped forward to speak about their close relationship with her. I find it difficult to believe people who knew and supposedly loved her would participate in a movie about her done by folks who didn’t know her. We are exhausted by the continuing misinformation and comments offered by people who did not know her. Please let her rest.”

Also Houston’s family will not release any of her music to be used in the movie. The songs will be sung by R&B singer Deborah Cox. Yaya Dacosta from ‘America’s Next Top Model’ fame, will be playing Whitney Houston. The biopic will be directed by Angela Bassett
