Whitney Houston’s Daughter Starts Twitter FightBy: Ellisha Rader Mannering - July 2, 2014
A lot of people like to voice their frustrations on Twitter, and Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, is no different.
Bobbi was upset because she was not chosen to play the role of her mother in the upcoming Lifetime biopic. Yaya DaCosta was chosen for the role instead.
Angela Bassett, who chose the cast, said that it was nothing personal and that she had a few very good reasons why she didn’t choose Bobbi for the role.
“I did not think about casting [Bobbi],” she said. “One [reason] 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 … It’s more than just saying lines and turning the light on.”
The explanation wasn’t good enough for Bobbi and she lashed out at Basset on Twitter.
Bobbi later apologized for the tweet and said that she had made a mistake and was a big enough person to admit it. She also claimed that she never wanted to play the role of her mother in the biopic, and was upset with Basset for other reasons concerning the movie.
Basset is an actress herself and played Tina Turner in the biopic What’s Love Got to Do with It.
The Whitney Houston biopic will be her directorial debut.
Do you think Basset was right for not casting Bobbi Kristina in the biopic?
