Cissy Houston has spoken. The Houston’s are now coming to a television near you.
Many may think it is far too soon following the January death of Whitney Houston to make her family the subject of a reality television series, but shockingly Whitney's mother Cissy Houston does not agree.
According to reports by TMZ, Whitney's mother is telling friends that she is completely behind the idea of the Lifetime reality show documenting the family following Whitney’s death because she feels it can launch Bobbi Kristina's singing career.
The decision is a surprising one from the head of the Houston clan who was big on preserving Whitney’s privacy immediately following her death.
As reported by TMZ:
Whitney Houston's mother is telling friends ... she fully supports the idea of a family reality show because she believes the exposure will be GREAT for Bobbi Kristina's singing career.
As we previously reported, the family just inked a TV deal with Lifetime to star in a reality show that will follow Whitney's relatives in the wake of the singer's untimely death.
Houston family sources tell TMZ ... Cissy Houston knows BK shares Whitney's passion for music ... and she believes a reality show could be the perfect place to showcase Bobbi's talent.
We're told ... Cissy also believes a reality show will "help with the healing process" by "keeping the family as one."
Cissy also likes the fact that her "extended family" will be making money from the deal.
But don't expect Kardashian-style antics on the Houston show -- producers are suggesting it will have a more serious tone ... at least for now.
