Whitney Houston’s Daughter, Bobbi Kristina, Twitter-attacks Angela BassettBy: Pam Wright - July 3, 2014
Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown took a moment on Twitter to share how she really feels about Angela Bassett after The Butler actress revealed she never considered Bobbi to play Whitney in a planned TV biopic for Lifetime.
Bassett, who marks her directorial debut with the movie, has cast Yaya DaCosta from All My Children to play Whitney in the tentatively titled I Will Always Love You: The Whitney Houston Story.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly about the project, Bassett seemed a little harsh when she told the magazine she wanted real talent for the job.
“I did not think about casting her,” said the Waiting to Exhale actress. “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.”
Needless to say, her remarks didn’t go over too well with Houston’s daughter. So Brown did what dissed celebrities do — she ranted on Twitter.
She may have taken it too far when she likened Bassett to a man.
“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 later posted, “When I win my first Grammy or Oscar, *Shrugs* hmm whichever comes 1st, I’ll be sure 2shout URname out [expletive]! Ha UrTestResults = Male. Lmao.”
She later deleted the tweets and apologized in another sorry, not sorry tweet: “I’m a young woman that can admit her wrongs. 4who was offended I apologize BUT understand me before you’re quick to judge though. ThankU.”
Houston‘s manager and sister-in-law Pat Houston also criticized Basset and her plans to turn Houston’s life story into a TV movie, believing the vocal icon is “certainly worthy of more than a television movie.”
I Will Always Love You: The Whitney Houston Story is expected to air next year.
