Whitney Houston’s Family Inks Deal for Reality Show

It’s been only three short months since the sudden and tragic death of Whitney Houston, and the late singer’s family is understandably still going through the cycle of grief associated with such a loss. Perhaps less understandably, the American public will be able to watch it all go down on the Houston family’s brand new reality show!

Because there’s apparently nothing wrong with profiting from the death of a loved one, several members of Houston’s family–including mother Cissy, daughter Bobbi Kristina and sister-in-law/manager Pat–have signed on for an upcoming reality show, The Houston Chronicles, which will air on Lifetime. This according to TMZ, who broke the news yesterday, and who reported this morning that Cissy is hoping the show will help ignite Bobbi Kristina’s music career. Because there’s nothing at all shady about that!

As for what the show will feature, Lifetime EVP Robert Sharenow explains: "In this series, the multi-generations of the Houston family will bravely reveal their lives as they bond together to heal, love, and grow."

Heal, love, grow… and make a ton of money? Not sure how I feel about this. What say you?
