The family of the late singer Whitney Houston has received an order for a reality show, the Los Angeles Times reports. The order comes from Lifetime, which will track Houston’s family members in 10 one-hour episodes of “The Houston Family Chronicles.”
Taking the spotlight will be Whitney Houston’s brother Gary; Whitney’s manager, sister-in-law and confidant Pat Houston; and Rayah, the couple’s teenage daughter.
The story reports: “Houston’s only daughter, Bobbi Kristina, and her mother, Cissy Houston, will also appear on the show. Lifetime says the series will show Pat and Gary 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.’”
Lifetime’s description of the show continues: “A mother to her own teenage daughter, Rayah, Pat understands the difficulty of raising a young woman in a world where social media and peer pressure are the norm. As she tries to guide her own daughter into womanhood, Pat also has the responsibility of raising Bobbi Kristina, who, while trying to move forward with life and make decisions about her future, must also learn to cope with such a devastating loss.”
Whitney Houston died Feb. 11 at age 48 in a hotel bathtub in Beverly Hills, with her death determined to be caused by accidental drowning, as we reported previously. She had cocaine, marijuana and a variety of other drugs in her system at the time of her death.
