Lifetime has received quite the backlash concerning its upcoming Whitney Houston bio, which will see America's Next Top Model alum Yaya DeCosta portray the late singer. Previously, Whitney's sister-in-law Pat said in a statement to TMZ back in May:
"Whitney is certainly worthy of more than a television movie, and if she were here today, this would not be happening."
Well, now Whitney's mother Cissy has something to say. Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, the now 80 year old matriarch said:
"Lifetime has chosen to go ahead with the movie about Whitney in spite of my family’s objections. No one connected with this movie knew Whitney or anything about her relationship with Bobby. In the two years since Whitney’s death, many people have stepped forward to speak about their close relationship with her. I find it difficult to believe people who knew and supposedly loved her would participate in a movie about her done by folks who didn’t know her. We are exhausted by the continuing misinformation and comments offered by people who did not know her. Please please let her rest."
Now, what are my conflicted reasons, you ask? IF this was being brought to the big screen, and the family had input, would they still be putting up a fuss? I'm leaning towards NO. What do you guys think of this? Does Cissy have a point? Or is this all about money? Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
