Whitney Houston – The Movie

Whitney Houston Passes Away At 48 ***FILE PHOTOS***

Lifetime is making a movie on the life of late pop singer, Whitney Houston and her rocky relationship with her husband, Bobby Brown.  The TV movie will be the directorial debut for actress Angela Bassett, and is due out in 2015.

“I have such regard for both Whitney’s and Bobby’s amazing talents and accomplishments, and I feel a responsibility in the telling of their story,” said Bassett. “Their humanity and bond fascinates us all. I’m beyond excited to have this opportunity to go behind the camera and into their world.”

Houston passed away in February 2012 at the age of 48 from an accidental drowning related to drug addiction.  She was a six-time Grammy winner and was also an noted actress in movies such as ‘The Bodyguard,‘ and ‘Waiting to Exhale.’

Whitney Houston told Rihanna to stay away from Tyler Perry


Whitney Houston and Tyler Perry were apparently really close during her lifetime, but that may not have actually been the case, because apparently Whitney advised Rihanna to never do one of his movies, and RiRi’s been dodging him ever since.

Here’s the deal: apparently Tyler’s been asking Rihanna to start in his next movie for over a year and she keeps turning him down since Whitney advised her that only “fading black stars” took on those roles. Ouch!

“Whitney put her off Tyler by warning her bluntly that ‘Tyler’s films are for fading black stars, not rising ones,’” the source said.

“Rihanna so respected Whitney because in addition to being one of the biggest pop stars ever, she starred in hit movies such as The Bodyguard.”

And Rihanna, also a multi-talented star, feels it will be better for her career to do something similar to the 2012 science fiction war film Battleship, for which she received glowing reviews, the source said.

“She’s ruling out doing a Tyler Perry-style romantic comedy because she thinks she works better in action roles, playing the tough girl.”

It’s sorta hilarious that Rihanna would rather do a movie based on a board game than one that’s guaranteed to be a box office hit, even if it’s not all that rewarding. How well did Battleship even do – $65 million internationally? Oh wait, Tyler Perry’s last three did even less than that, so maybe I’m wrong. Do you, Rihanna!

Did Bobbi Kristina get too thin? Some people on Twitter think so…


Bobbi Kristina, daughter of the late Whitney Houston, recently went on vacation with her new husband, Nick Gordon. As most celebrities (and pseudo-celebrities) are wont to do, the couple posted photos of BK in her bikini while enjoying some time in the sun on Twitter, and apparently some fellow users of the social media site went crazy.

Many claimed that Bobbi Kristina had gotten too thin and expressed concern over her slimmer frame, but both BK and Nick were having none of it and quickly retaliated. Nick’s tweet isn’t even worth quoting as it’s laced with so much profanity, but Bobbi herself insisted that she simply has a “fast metabolism”.

I am my mothers child ! Have you ever heard of a #fastmetabolism? Damn, lol it’s incredible how the world will judge you 4ANY&EVERYthing

Well, fair enough. It’s not really anyone’s place to dictate why a person looks any particular way, but here’s hoping she’s okay.

Bobbi Kristina “emotional” during tribute tattoo of her mom, Whitney Houston

Bobbi Kristina Brown is memorializing her mom, by getting the late singer’s initials tattooed on her wrist.

The 19-year-old and her boyfriend Nick Gordon visited Inksomnia Tattoo in Alpharetta, GA, Wednesday night to get matching tattoos on their right wrists. The tattoos feature Houston’s initials and four doves with two small crosses.

Once inside, Houston’s daughter quickly began remembering her mother.

“She was emotional when she was here,” Inksomnia owner Mike Cummings told Celebuzz. “We tried to keep her spirits up and not get too personal, though.”

Cummings also revealed that the twosome arrived with a full camera crew to film their new reality show.

“It was chaotic, but a lot of fun,” Cummings said, adding Bobbi Kristina has been to the shop several times before to get piercings. “They’re both really nice people.”

Looking through Bobbi’s pictures I found this one of Bobbi and Whitney smoking a cigarette together. It doesn’t look that old, so it had to have been taken shortly before Whitney passed.
