It is hard to believe it has now been a little over two years since Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter and only child of the late and great Whitney Houston passed. The pain is just as real now as it was then. She was a beautiful, talented young woman with much potential and apparently an equally troubled life.
Well TVOne is preparing to show all of this, and has produced a biopic of Bobbi Kristina set to be released Sunday, October 8th!
via E! News
E! News also has your exclusive first look at the emotional TV movie in the exclusive trailer above, which is set to air tonight on the network during the premiere of When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story.
Stuck in the Middle’s Joy Rovaris takes on the role of Bobbi, while Grown Up’s Nadji Jeter will portray her boyfriend Nick Gordon, and their complicated relationship is one of the trailer’s main focuses, in addition to Bobbi’s struggle with growing up in the shadow of the spotlight of her mother, with Demetria McKinney portraying the late music legend.
“You heard the news,” the trailer reads. “You never heard her story. Until now.”
This biopic is definitely making news, especially if E! News is covering it! We have to say the cast looks great and most of all we love that Demetria McKinney is playing Whitney! Demetria is an amazing actress and singer, and will do the role of Whitney Houston some serious justice. Bobbi Kristina’s death will always go down in history as a true tragedy, but serves as a reminder that “fame ain’t always fun.” Being a celebrity kid may sometimes be harder than being an actual celebrity. Growing up is hard enough, try doing it in limelight while simultaneously being in your parents’ shadows.
