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!

Bobbi Kristina Is Getting Her Dough

And then probably her blow too!

Her grandmother, gospel singer Cissy Houston, has officially conceded and is allowing the trust find set up for the only child of Whitney Houston to proceed according to original plans.

Previously, she was out to have it altered to save Bobbi Kristina from herself and other bad influences. Namely her adopted brother/boyfriend and her father, singer Bobby Brown. Because we all know that if she gets fat checks like this, he’s gonna be popping up to borrow some sugar….green sugar. The papers Cissy filed would have dramatically altered the pay-out of the $20 million the 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina is set to inherit. And if you’re like me, you’re probably thinking to yourself…

That’s alot of crack, booze, and weed!

As it stands now, Bobbi Kris will receive $2 million when she turns 21, $4 million when she turns 25, and the balance of $16 million at the age of 30. And now that you just read that last sentence, replace all the ‘whens’ with ‘ifs’. She is the daughter of two drug addicts, after all.

Let the countdown begin!

Show us the receipts!

Bobby Brown Arrested For The Umpteenth Time

If that’s not the face of sobriety, then I don’t know what is!

Now, what week could be complete around here without reporting on the family that laughs at rehab! And no, it’s not Bobbi Kristina (not this week, anyway, but the week is not over yet!), but her daddy, Bobby Brown that was arrested. And this time, Brown cannot deny the strong odor of alcohol on his breath. The police arrived quick enough to administer a test and I’m sure you all know Bobby Brown isn’t too good about passing tests…

FAIL!

Book him, Dan-o!

The LAPD arrested the singer on suspicion (ha!) of DUI.

Now, the timeline goes like this: Bobby Brown got arrested in March for driving under the influence. For that case, he fled to rehab, seeking treatment for alcohol abuse over the summer. Before that, Brown had a conviction in 1996. Well, there’s one thing I can say about Bobby.

At least he’s consistent!

And now I am waiting to hear from Bobbi K. Don’t let your daddy have all the fun! Go out and do some hoodrat stuff! I have a job to do!

Is Bobbi Kristina Engaged?

This seems to be the train wreck that just will never end. Not even two weeks after making headlines for crashing in a car with her alleged boyfriend, now comes more reports from sources that the daughter of the late singer Whitney Houston and King of R&B (rocks & booze) Bobby Brown is engaged to be married to Nick Gordon, who was informally adopted by Houston nearly ten years ago. Luckily, we have reality television to clear the rumors up on whether or not Bobbi Kris is indeed about to walk down the aisle.
Nearly a decade after Being Bobby Brown killed the image of Whitney as a pristine pop diva, now comes another show chronicling the famous family. The Houstons: On Our Own is set to air on Lifetime and will include Cissy Houston, Gary Houston (Whitney’s brother), and Pat Houston (Whitney’s manager) as they cope following the superstar’s death. The reality show is set to debut any day now and rumors are reaching a fever pitch. For what it’s worth, Bobbi Kristina denies she is tying the knot anytime soon, but then again, can we really trust what she says? As her mama used to say…
Show me the receipts!!

Bobbi Kristina May Have To Wait Longer for Inheritance

Whitney Houston family is plotting to put the brakes on the millions potentially set to trickle into the coffers of her daughter Bobbi Kristina. Whitney Houston’s mother and sister-in-law, Cissy Houston and Pat Houston, have filed a request that would change the distribution of the wealth Bobbi Kristina is set to inherit, which has been estimated to be upwards of $20 million dollars. They both think (and rightfully so considering her antics the past few months) that she doesn’t need that much money so soon or she will be a danger to herself, as well as people trying to exert control over her life.

Under the current payment schedule, Bobbi Kristina is set to receive 10% at 21 years of age, 20% at age 25, and the balance paid out in full to her upon reaching her 30th birthday.

Now, if you are like me and are blessed with the senses of sight and hearing, you know good and damn well that at the rate Bobbi Kristina is going, she will be lucky to get that first 10%. And like her mother used to say, ‘crack is cheap’.

Which only means that you can buy more of it.

Bobbi Kristina Enters White Girl Wasted Territory

White Girl Wasted Week just got a little bit darker.

When did White Girl Wasted week begin? I cannot keep track for all the headlines blurring together in one dizzying array of ignunce. Lindsay, Amanda, and now Bobbi? Remember that White Girl Wasted syndrome knows no color and this has been further confirmed with the addition of Whitney Houston’s only child, Bobbi Kristina, who has finally made a return to the headlines after a few weeks away. This is further proof that you can never keep a crackie down for long and now Amanda Bynes may have to slide over to the left and let a new girl have her day in the sun.

Bobbi Kris was involved in a car accident in Georgia, annihilating the entire front of the black 2012 Camara, and leading to speculation that there is more to the story than what meets the eye. Early reports are that Bobbi was only a passenger in the car, but that the two were involved in a heated argument at the time of the crash. The accident is currently under investigation and Bobbi’s spokesperson has yet to release an official statement.

Well alright for Bobbi Kris bringing a little color to White Girl Wasted week! Now if only Lucy Liu or Sofia Vergara could get get trashed and arrested this week, I’d be over the moon!

Bobbi Kristina and Nick Gordon Celebrate Whitney’s Birthday! (PHOTOS)

Today would have been Whitney Houston’s 49th birthday and daughter Bobbi Kristina and her boyfriend slash brother Nick Gordon decided to do something special to celebrate the day.

With reality television shows in tow, Bobbi Kris and her man hit up Inksomnia Tattoo Shop in Alpharetta, Georgia to get matching tats.

Via her Twitter page, BK tweeted, “I’m REALLY REALLY missing my mommy today. 2morrow is #MOMMYSBDAY of course. Once it hits 12 am mommy it’s your birthday & I am going 2 celebrate it 2 thee fullest! Bc YOU deserve it damn it, YOU deserveNothingbuttheBEST!

All I can do is shake my damn head. Here’s hoping Bobbi Kris can prove me wrong.

How Good Is Bobbi Kristina As An Actress? Check Out Her For Better Or Worse Acting Debut VIDEO

Bobbi Kristina made her TV debut on Tyler Perry’s “For Better or Worse” last night and we’ve got the video of her doing her thing. (And let me be honest, she isn’t half bad.)

In the show, Bobbi Kris plays a secretary who warns characters Angela and Leslie not to find a boyfriend for her mother, salon stylist Jennifer. Whitney Houston’s daughter is shown only for a few seconds in the clip below, but I can see why Perry gave BK a chance.

Next up we’ll get to see Bobbi starring in her fam’s Lifetime reality show called The Houston Family Chronicles, which should certainly be interesting, to say the least. Alongside her will star grandmother Cissy, uncle Gary Houston and his wife Pat Houston. Other celebrities set to make an appearance include Dionne Warwick, CeCe Winans and Kim Burrell.

Check out Bobbi Kristina in “For Better Or Worse” below.

Tyler Perry Defends Kim Kardashian and Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Acting Skills

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tyler Perry is coming to the defense of Kim Kardashian and Bobbi Kristinasaying that they’re both great new actresses that he’s happy to have worked with.

The director first cast Kim in his upcoming film, The Marriage Counselor, in which she plays Ava, a friend/co-worker of  the main character Judith, played by Jurnee Smollett.

“She’s a good actress,” Tyler raved to reporters about Kim at the NYC premiere of Madea’s Witness Protection. “She did a really good job.” With Kim being deemed a typical reality bimbo, as well as being involved in one of the biggest headlined divorces in celeb history, he obviously faced fire for casting her into the film. “There was a lot going on with her marriage and all that stuff at the time,” he explained, referring to Kim’s divorce filing from Kris Humphries after 72 days of marriage. “All that stuff that’s in the past. The movie’s called The Marriage Counselor. Of course it had something to do with that.”

Tyler also spoke well of Bobbi Kris, who he recently cast as a recurring character for his TBS series For Better Or Worse. “She did a fantastic job. That kid has such a future,” he said. “She’s such an actor. I’m so proud of her. I’m telling you. As far as she wants to go in this business, she can.”

In terms of casting Bobbi Kristina so soon after her mother Whitney Houston’s passing this past February, it’s not a decision he regrets.  “The whole purpose of that was to make sure that she was around people who cared, who loved her,” he explained. “What I found when my mother died is that you have to be around people who you trust. And I was glad that I could be there.”

Honestly, I’m excited to see both working in these Tyler Perry projects. I’ve been watching Kim, who presently has a recurring role on Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva, and she’s pretty good! Who would’ve thunk? I think with some more acting classes, she could go on to do some other roles. As far as Bobbi Kristina, I’m not sure what she’ll bring to the table, but entertainment’s in her blood, so I’m sure she has potential as well.

Bobby Brown’s Daughter Snubs Dad’s Wedding!

Bobby Brown’s daughter is said to have snubbed her father’s upcoming wedding in Hawaii so that she could focus on her new reality show.

Yesterday (Father’s Day) Brown was scheduled to play a show in Honolulu and while he was there in Hawaii, he was planning on exchanging vows with his girlfriend Alicia Etheridge.

According to reports, Bobbi Kris said she rather spend her time in the Big Apple with her rumored beau Nick Gordon to shoot scenes from her upcoming reality show than taking a flight to Hawaii to hang with her pops and his new woman.

Yeah she’s filming a reality show with cameras following her around. Cha-ching! I’m not so sure I feel sorry for her anymore. Cripes, it has only been four months and Bobbi Kris is already cashing in on her mama’s death. Shaking my damn head.

Bobbi Kristina Walks Off For Better Or Worse set!


Bobbi Kristina obviously shouldn’t be working this soon after her mother’s death. Case in point? Radaronline.com is reporting that last week Bobbi Kristina quit Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse show on TBS after having a meltdown.

A source told Radar,

“She thought she was ready for this, but she wasn’t,” one source told RadarOnline.com. The insider added that when Bobbi, 19, walked off the set she did it so quietly that barely anyone noticed, even though she dissolved into tears.

The source went on, “Bobbi Kristina had a private breakdown and barely anyone saw it. She was crying and said she needed a minute, she needed a break to get herself together. But then she decided she couldn’t handle doing the show right now. She’s still mourning her mom.”

I was surprised myself to see that Bobbi Kris would be throwing herself out there into the public eye for work. It almost seemed to me as if she was trying to distract herself with different projects. Obviously she isn’t ready.

She only filmed a couple of episodes for the show which are scheduled air in July but she feels she just isn’t ready for stepping into the limelight. So what is Perry going to do now that Bobbi Kris has taken off?

Well he’s not happy and he’ll more than likely have to rewrite the exit of her character unless she tries to give it another shot.

Bobbi Kristina & The Slots

No, it’s not the name of her new pop group. It’s what the teen was doing this weekend in Nevada! What do you do when mommy’s checks run out? Do you go out and hold up a 7-11? No. Do you get on Craigslist and barter for an EBT card? No.

You play the slots! Forget what the law says mandating you be 21 or over to partake. It’s a recession!

That seems to be Bobbi Kristina’s mantra these days, as cameras caught the daughter of the late pop singer Whitney Houston hitting up the slots over the weekend of the Billboard Music Awards. How nice that as the event pays homage to her mother, her daughter, who accepted an award in her mother’s behalf, may be behind bars.

Reports are that Bobbi probably did not win anything substantial, since that would require paperwork and even if the teen has fake I.D., everyone knows who she is. A representative for the Nevada Gaming Commission is reportedly investigating the incident.  If convicted, Bobbi Kristina could be looking at up to six months in jail or a $1,000 fine. The MGM Grand could also punish Bobbi K. As her father Bobby Brown might say…

$1,000 can buy alot of crack!

Bobbi Kristina Accepts Billboard Music Awards 2012 Millennium Award For Her Mother Whitney Houston

Last night Bobbi Kristina attended the Billboard Music Awards 2012 to accept the Millennium Award on behalf of her mother Whitney Houston. It was a rare public appearance for Bobbi Kris as she attended the BBMA’s in Vegas, but it was all for good reason. (Even her rumored boyfriend Nick Gordon was there to show his support and to plant a kiss on Bobbi Kris’ cheek as he brought her up to the stage.)

In an emotional tribute to Whitney, Whoopi Goldberg began the tribute saying, “What all performers want and need and should get is love and many of us here loved Whitney, and even if you’re one of those who didn’t show the love to Whitney, now is your chance, because tonight, that’s what we’re doing: We’re going to be giving Whitney the greatest love of all.”

After John Legend and Houston’s co-star in Sparkle Jordin Sparks performed some of Whit’s hits, Whit’s sister-in-law Pat Houston and Bobbi Kris took to the stage to accept the award for Whitney.

According to Radaronline.com, Pat said, “This is truly an honor. We thank you, Billboard; we thank you, Whoopi, Jordin; we love you, John. But tonight, the one person that should be accepting this award is the one person that Whitney loved most.”

Bobbi Kris then took the mic to say that she “just really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all. Not just when it was good, but when it was bad too. Thank you so much for showing that much love, ’cause she deserved it. There will never be another one, ever. I thank you so much.”

REPORT: Bobbi Kristina Starring In Tyler Perry Sitcom

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bobbi Kristina may still be grieving after the untimely death of her mother, legendary songstress Whitney Houston. And now she has the crazy stunts of her father Bobby Brown, who was just arrested for a DUI, to deal with. However, she is still moving forward with her life, and could possibly be hitting TV sets across the country soon!

Reports are that famed director and actor, Tyler Perry, has given Bobbi Kris a a role on his sitcomFor Better or For Worse, which has been picked up for a 2nd season on TBS.

Last month, the network ordered 35 more episodes of the series and it’s scheduled to air starting in July 2012. The series stars Tasha Smith (Angela) and Michael Jai White (Marcus) and is based on Tyler’s 2007 film Why Did I Get Married? and the 2010 sequel Why Did I Get Married Too? Tasha’s character, Angela, owns her own beauty salon, and Tyler has supposedly casted Bobbi Kristina in a recurring role as one of the stylists at the shop.

The upcoming actress has apparently been spotted coming and going from Tyler Perry’s Atlanta Studios for a few weeks now, with her brother/boy toy Nick Gordon right by her side. Whitney’s manager/sister-in-law/best friend and aunt to Bobbi Kris, Pat Houston, has also been seen at the studio.

This should be big! I definitely want to see if Bobbi Kristina got the acting genes from her mom. Who knows? This may open the door for some other big opportunities. It’s good of Tyler to give her a chance, possibly to keep her out of trouble and on the right path to her dreams of being an actress and singer. Don’t blow it girl!

Whitney Houston’s “adopted” son Nick Gordon and Bobbi Kristina Spotted Kissing!

Whitney Houston’s (rumored) adopted son Nick Gordon is squashing rumors that he is bumping fugs with his “sister” Bobbi Kristina. Even though they were spotted sucking face and groping each other in public, Nick is saying that he’s only helping Bobbi Kris get through her mother’s passing or so he told ABCNews.com.

A British newspaper is even going as far to say that Bobbi and Nick are engaged as she was spotted wearing a big fat diamond ring on “that” finger.

So what if they really ARE dating? Does this make their relationship incestuous? Gramma Cissy Houston thinks so and she’s really effing pissed that these two kids are carrying on like they are.

In response to the video that was posted on TMZ on Wednesday, a close friend of Cissy is saying that Gramma is trying her damnedest to get Gordon evicted from Whitney’s home because basically they thinks that Bobbi Kris has problems and Nick is taking advantage of her.

Well if she is emotionally vulnerable there is no doubt that I would be concerned too if Nick was manipulative. But good gawd, Whitney trusted this guy so baby there already was something going on before Whit’s death?

Who effing knows. And does it really matter?

For the Whitney Houston Estate it does because at this point, Bobbi Kris is the one with the big cash.
