Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Bobbi Kristina Slams Angela Bassett Over Whitney Houston Biopic

Lifetime is filming the upcoming biopic about Whitney Houston, but her daughter Bobbi Kristina is NOT feeling it! Whitney’s daughter tweeted her anger about the project, slamming Angela Bassett, who will serve as director, in the process!

Angela gave an interview recently about the film to Entertainment Weekly, discussing why she didn’t cast Bobbi in the role. “I did not think about casting her. And probably for a number of reasons, you know. One being that she’s not an actress. I know she’s acted here and there. I know she’s been on their family’s reality show, but she’s not an actress and acting is a craft,” she explained. “It’s an attempt to illuminate the complexities of human behavior and life. And this is a very fast-paced schedule; we have just 21 days to tell this story. It’s more than just saying lines and turning the light on. You have to drive the story—there’s a technical aspect.”

Well, of course, Bobbi didn’t take that lying down! The 21-year-old tweeted, “Ha MsAng “bassketcase” has such a damn nerve my lord, at least the world doesn’t mistake me for the wrong sex…she has some #XtraEquipment.” She alos added, “When I win my first Grammy or Oscar, *Shrugs* hmm whichever comes 1st, I’ll be sure 2shout URname out b-tch! Hah UrTestResults = Male. Lmao.”

It was announced earlier in the month thatformer America’s Next Top Model contestant Yaya DeCosta would play Whitney. Unlike Bobbi, Yaya has real acting experience, working as a child actor, and also appearing on All My Children as well as Ugly Betty. The model has also been in hit films such as Lee Daniels’ The Butler and Tron: Legacy.

Bobbi Kristina is coming off really, REALLY bitter. Yes, I understand that your mother wanted you to play her, but baby girl, you have relatively NO acting experience! I’ve seen you in a few episodes of Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married, and that’s it. That small little role hardly warrants you starring in a movie, even if it is in the role of your mother. If you’re really serious about acting, take some classes, build up your experience, and maybe you can make it. I’m mad she tried going in on Angela Bassett like that!

Angela Bassett Says She’s Not Stuck UP And Mean!

Looking stunning as ever, Angela Bassett poses for the cover of December 16th issue of JET magazine as she discusses being a mom, a wife and her new projects.

Currently she is starring in FX’s hit drama, American Horror Story: Coven, and fans can expect to see her on the big screen alongside Forrest Whitaker in the anticipated film Black Nativity, which hits theaters November 27th.

While many are familiar with Bassett’s acting career, she gives readers of JET magazine a taste of her personal life as she discusses her struggles with infertility, disagreements with her husband, and parenting young twins while she and her husband both have thriving acting careers.

Check out the highlights via JET magazine below:

On her children facing racism amongst peers:

“The kids were playing one day, and a blonde, blue-eyed girl said that she didn’t want my daughter to be a part of the family. My son stood up to her and asked the child how would she feel if she was treated like that, and the girl said ‘bad.’ They were only 4 years old at the time.”

On Infertility:

“After trying and trying, I unfortunately couldn’t have my babies. It was my reality. I heard about the surrogate option and it worked out beautifully.”

On her public persona:

“I’m pretty sure that people think that I’m really serious. I know that they think I’m stern as well. People are always surprised that I’m actually fun, and not all stuck-up and mean!”

I’ve always thought of her as serious, but looks can be deceiving. I also didn’t think Naomi Campbell had anger issues.

The December 16th issue of JET magazine is on newsstands now.
