Whitney Houston Family Angry Over Planned Lifetime Movie

Submitted by on May 26, 2014 – 2:07 pmOne Comment

A planned television movie about the life of Whitney Houston by the Lifetime network has infuriated the family of the late iconic singer. Reportedly, the Houston family thinks Whitney is “too big” for just a made-for-TV movie, and is considering legal action to stop production on the project. According to TMZ:

“Sources close to the Houston family tell us the estate is planning its own movie for the big screen — ala the ‘This is It’ Michael Jackson flick.”

Whitney’s Waiting to Exhale costar, Angela Bassett, is slated to direct the Lifetime film, which would debut on the network some time in 2015. Whitney’s sister-in-law, Pat Houston, told TMZ about the project, “Whitney is certainly worthy of more than a television movie. If Whitney were here today, this would not be happening.”

Meanwhile, a mere few months after Whitney’s untimely demise in 2012, Pat and the rest of the family began working on a reality show about their lives in the wake of her death. You can’t get any more lowbrow than that.
