Whitney Houston‘s family will star in a new Lifetime reality show, the Huffington Post reports. Cissy Houston, Bobbie Kristina Brown, the late singer’s manager and sister-in law Pat Houston, Pat’s daughter Rayah and Whitney’s brother Gary will all star in The Houston Family Chronicles (working title). Whitney’s cousin, Dionne Warwick and CeCe Winans will also make appearances.
Cameras will follow the family “as they take on their greatest challenge, supporting and guiding Bobbi Kristina as she faces the world alone, without the one person she relied on the most, her Mother,” according to a Lifetime statement.
“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,” executive vice president of programming at Lifetime Networks Rob Sharenow stated. “In this series, the multi-generations of the Houston family will bravely reveal their lives as they bond together to heal, love, and grow.”
Pat released her own statement about the reality show.“I have been working with Simmons Shelley over the past few years developing a project suitable for myself and our family,” the statement read. “The unexpected passing of Whitney certainly affects the direction of the show. However, it is my hope that others will be enlightened as they watch our family heal and move forward.”
This doesn’t sound like a good idea, but the bigger question is: Will you watch?
