7 Reasons Why the Whitney Houston Family Reality Show Should Not Be on TV (LawdAMercy!)

Reality shows are nothing new. Seriously, everyone and their momma has one nowadays. But when rumors started swirling about the late Whitney Houston’s family starring in a new show, we were sure they were just rumors. However, Lifetime has confirmed the show, exactly three months after Whitney’s death. The show is set to debut later this year, and will primarily focus on Whitney’s manager and sister-in-law, Pat Houston, her brother Gary, and the couple’s daughter, Rayah. Whitney’s daughter Bobbi Kristina, and her mom, Cissy, will also make appearances, as the family deals with the aftermath of the icon’s untimely death. If that isn’t enough star power for you, Dionne Warwick and CeCe Winans will also appear on the highly anticipated series. The cast of characters sounds appealing, but something about this show doesn’t sit right with us.

Countless reasons exist, but here are 7 reasons why “The Houston Family Chronicles” is just wrong.

Anyone Remember “Being Bobby Brown”?

In 2005, Bobby and Whitney opened their doors to the cameras, and straight foolishness resulted. Between the couple’s spats and Whitney’s infamous “hell to the no” catchphrase, it was a train wreck we couldn’t turn away from. We don’t want “The Houston Family Chronicles” to have the same fate.

    Funny….when you mentioned other reality shows, the Kardashians came FIRST.  Why do those people/family feel blacks consider them that relevant????    They only want to use blacks – which we should not allow.

    Oprah had to wring Pat’s mouth to get anything worthwhile out of her. She seems b-o-r-i-n-g.  Only if she talks about her time with Whitney could this be half interesting.
