The Houston Family Chronicles: televising Whitney Houston’s legacy enema
HOW can Whitney Houston keep on entertaining us with new material now she’s gone? Well, news is that the singer’s brother, Gary Houston, his wife, Pat Houston, Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, and mother, Cissy will all star in a fly-in-the-drugs cabinet reality TV show called The Houston Family Chronicles. The ten-show series will run on Lifetime. Says the broadcaster’s Rob Sharenow:
“The tragic loss of Whitney Houston left a void in the hearts of people all over the world, but certainly none more so than her beloved family. In this series, the multi-generations of the Houston family will bravely reveal their lives as they bond together to heal, love, and grow.”The Houston Family Chronicles
Nothing shrieks brave more than flogging your kitchen table chats about your famous dead relative to the fans. The press release gets better:
“With the certainty of a microscopic lens focused on this young woman and her every move, Pat, Gary and their tight-knit group of family and friends are committed to seeing that Bobbi Kristina can grow and experience life unscathed.”
What better medium than the telly to protect the child by? They’re shining a bright light into her bedroom window to see if she’s ok.
Of course, it is what Whitney Houston would have wanted. Who can forget the scene from the show Being Bobby Brown in which the Candy Girl singer described salving the icon’s’ constipation by relaxing the stuck poo with his fingers. Whitney said: “When I told my girlfriends about it, they said ‘That’s real love, baby. That’s real black love.'”
