‘Let Her Rest’ – Cissy Houston’s Response to Lifetime’s Biopic on Daughter Whitney

Over the last several weeks we’ve been hearing that Whitney Houston‘s family is not pleased with Lifetime‘s biopic it’s shooting about the deceased star.

Most of the noise against the film was coming from directly from Whitney’s daughter Bobbi Kristina. However, on Tuesday, Whitney’s mother, Cissy Houston, told Entertainment Tonight exclusively that the family is “exhausted” by the “continuing misinformation and comments offered by people who did not know her,” and pleaded with fans to “please let her rest.”

“Lifetime has chosen to go ahead with the movie about Whitney in spite of my family’s objections. No one connected with this movie knew Whitney or anything about her relationship with Bobby,” she said in a statement to ET. “In the two years since Whitney’s death, many people have stepped forward to speak about their close relationship with her. I find it difficult to believe people who knew and supposedly loved her would participate in a movie about her done by folks who didn’t know her. We are exhausted by the continuing misinformation and comments offered by people who did not know her. Please, please let her rest.”

Directed by actress Angela Bassett, the biopic will feature Houston’s music, but will not be sung by her — R&B singer Deborah Cox will provide the vocals for her hit songs, as we’ve already reported.

Of course before she had a problem with the film, Bobbi Kristina, 21, had wanted to play her mother, but Bassett wasn’t having it and cast former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant and actress Yaya DaCosta to play the late singer.

Guess who Has Apologized for Calling Angela Bassett the B-word?

bobbi kristina & angela bassett

Why are we, and most likely you, so not surprised to hear that Miss Bobbi Kristina has backtracked on calling Angela Bassett a bitch.

As we reported last week, the late Whitney Houston’s daughter, who seems to feel she’s downright entitled to play her mother in the a new production from Lifetime being directed by Bassett, and blasted the actress/director for not casting her (Bobbi K) because she has no acting experience.

On top of Bobbi Kristina giving Bassett and the network grief about the biopic about the life of the 48-year-old superstar singer/actress, who died in 2012 from a drug overdose, the Houston family is adding to the drama as well. Some seem to feel the Lifetime production isn’t the right vehicle to tell Whitney Houston’s story.

“Whitney is certainly worthy of more than a television movie and if she were here today this would not be happening,” said the late-singer’s sister-in-law, Pat Houston.

And even though Bobbi Kristina dissed the film, too, she more or less demanded the leading role.

“I don’t know how to feel, this so-called ‘film’ isn’t in my positive thoughts. That’s MY mother, what makes YOU think that’s ok with me? If Anyone would or should EVER play my mother & tell OUR story, we’ve talked MANY times & one & ONLY person she approved of is ME. Understand that.”

She also added, via Twitter:

“TRULY understand people want 2 love & honor #HERSTORY the way they think should be told – But simply out of respect, All I ask isn’t mucho lol.”

But the bottom line is that Bobbi K was NOT cast to play her mother and that’s when she went left with the now infamous Tweet, basically calling Bassett a male of all things and yes, the b-word.

“Ha MsAng “bassketcase” has such a damn nerve. My lord, at least the world doesn’t mistake me for the wrong sex..[sunglasses emjoi] she has #XtraEequipment,” Bobbi Kristina tweeted. “When I win my first Grammy or Oscar, *Shrugs* hmm whichever comes1st, I’ll be sure 2shout URname out b-tch ! hahUrTestResults= MALE. Lmao [crying laughing emoji]”

Now it seems she’s come to her senses and has issued an apology to the award-winning actress.

“I’m a young woman who can admit her wrongs. 4 who was offended I apologize BUT understand me before your quick to judge though; Your Choices & Decisions are the ONLY things you have to YOURSELF in life & You won’t know how important those things are until they’re taken.”

Well, so far, Bassett hasn’t responded to Bobbi Kristina’s apology and now that we think about it, she never even acknowledged the original diss. She handling the situation like a pro and putting her focus of finishing the production. She did, however, say how much she regarded the amazing talents and accomplishments of both Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown.

“Their humanity and bond has fascinated us all. I am beyond excited to have this opportunity to go behind the camera and into their world.”

Angela Basset on Whitney Biopic & Not Casting Bobbi K … who’s Pissed

angela bassettAngela Bassett definitely has her work cut out for her as director of Lifetime’s Whitney Houston biopic.

Not only is the pressure on to do her late friend justice but also appease fans who are monitoring every aspect of the film. Nevertheless, with all the drama brought on by Houston’s family and fans, Bassett seems unfazed by it all.

The Oscar-nominated actress took time out to speak on her directorial debut to Entertainment Weekly as well as her first impression of Bobby Brown and the decision to not cast Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina as her mother in the film.

Highlights from the interview are below:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Why did you choose Whitney Houston as your first directorial project?

ANGELA BASSETT: I obviously had worked with Whitney and, you know, just fell in love with her as the rest of the world did. And when this opportunity was brought my way, it really was something I couldn’t say no to. I felt that if I said no and let it pass, I could imagine having a great deal of regret, you know? I wanted to tell a story about a beautiful sista, which is of course an opportunity for me to grow as a woman and as an artist in many expected and unexpected ways.

I had been looking for, hoping for, if I were to direct, a story that I felt deeply passionate about. One that I could stay up all night just thinking about, caring for and nurturing. I’ve had opportunities in the past, but nothing that just grabbed me like this did. I could only hope that the script would support my desire, and it did. It had to be grateful, respectful, honest, and all those things, because we know in her lifetime there was a great deal of pressure and scrutiny. I didn’t want this story to add to that.

The film specifically focuses on Bobby and Whitney’s relationship, which might be the most controversial aspect of her life. Does that make it easier or harder for you?

AB: Well, it was easy. I can’t say it was difficult. You know, I reflect it back on the moment I first saw them together. It was when I was doing Exhale. We were all on set in the living room together and [Bobby] came to visit. I, like everyone else, had some preconceived idea … people just looked at a photograph or picture of them together and thought “They’re incongruous.” “They don’t go together.” “Why is she with him?” I think that was usually the question, not “Why is he with her?” They could imagine her with someone else who does something else, who carries himself [differently], who looks somehow different.

We didn’t see any commonality between them and we, having nothing to do with their lives, [shared] our opinions and perception. We didn’t do it with anyone else, very few people. So that’s enormous. But that moment I had, where he visited the set, he made a very strong impression on me.

A positive or negative impression?
AB: Just positive. He wasn’t loud. He wasn’t over the top. He wasn’t a showboat. He was grounded. His energy felt grounded and serious and supportive and loving. Without trying.

Is Bobby involved in the film? Has he given it his okay?
AB: No. Bobby is not involved in the film. Of course, we’re very sensitive to whatever the relationships might be or what we have heard or what we perceive his relationship between her family and him. So we’re trying to be respectful.

In uplifting her memory to the highest standard possible, did you ever think about casting her daughter Bobbi Kristina as Whitney herself?
AB: No, I did not think about that. 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. 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.

Needless to say, Bobbi Kristina did not appreciate being passed over in playing her mother onscreen. Responding on Twitter, Bobbi Kristina had more than a couple of words directed towards Bassett.

“Ha MsAng “bassketcase” has such a damn nerve. My lord, at least the world doesn’t mistake me for the wrong sex..[sunglasses emjoi] she has #XtraEequipment,” Bobbi Kristina tweeted. “When I win my first Grammy or Oscar, *Shrugs* hmm whichever comes1st, I’ll be sure 2shout URname out b-tch ! hahUrTestResults= MALE. Lmao [crying laughing emoji]”

Whoa, dang Miss Bobbi K … we know you got issues, but you need to slow yo’ roll and quit being so disrespectful.
