Just over eight months after Whitney Houston’s death, several key families members are set to debut a new reality show October 24 that only exists because of Houston’s death.
Lifetime will air back-to-back half-hour episodes of ‘The Houstons: On Our Own” that day and a dozen more Wednesdays at 9 p.m.
The reality series will follow daughter Bobbi Kristina, sister-in-law and manager Pat Houston, Houston’s brother Gary and mother, Cissy Houston, along with Bobbi Kristina’s rather close buddy Nick Gordon. Most of the action will take place in metro Atlanta, where Pat and Gary Houston and Bobby Kristina reside. (Cissy lives in New Jersey, where Whitney grew up)
Bobbi Kristina, who goes by Krissy, is the 19-year-old daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney and the only heir to her mother’s estate, according to the Lifetime press release. We will see how Krissy grapples with the loss.
A special, “Remembering Whitney,” will air a week earlier with never-before-seen footage of Whitney and interviews with the Houston clan.
