Washington: Whitney Houston’s daughter has reportedly reached a verbal agreement for a reality TV show, which will be finalised on paper shortly.
A source close to the project said that the deal is sure to be controversial and added that the series is likely to be a “train wreck” because of Bobbi Kristina’s ongoing struggle with drugs and alcohol.
“This show is being done against her family’s advice,” Radar Online quoted the source as saying.
Viewers are likely to be shocked by what they see.
Another source close to the project said “Bobbi is scared the world will label her just like her mother”, but also added that the pop star’s daughter is “obviously very wild and misguided” and appeared to be “impaired” during one meeting with the network who signed her.
“She was slurring her words and said ‘I will show the world I am not my mother and will nots walk in her shoes down her path,’ then seconds later would mutter, ‘My mother was just normal, completely normal, someone who did normal things.
She just listened to all the wrong people - and did the wrong things’,” the source said.
The show is expected to feature Bobbi with some of the same “hangers on” who were with Houston and will also show her controversial relationship with Nick Gordon - her adopted brother with whom she is rumoured to be engaged.
Meanwhile, even though her family is opposed to the reality show, Bobbi told one source, “Something good might as well come out of all this bad stuff.”
