In an effort to appear as though Pat had a reality gig before this all happened, you will hear that she and Gary were interesting enough people to be selected for a show before the death of Whitney. What you will see of course is a show specifically about the death of Whitney and it will focus on Pat and Gary and their relationship with Bobbi Kristina. Pat and Gary’s daughter, Rayah, will also be on the show. I can’t believe that Cissy is doing it. Okay, I can believe it, I just don’t want to believe it. Less unbelievable is the fact that Dionne Warwick will appear. Oh and the Winans, don’t forget the Winans. Because don’t family and friends always grieve a tragic death with a reality show these days? Lord have mercy.
When Whitney Houston died, and I was reporting along with everyone else all the minutiae surrounding her death, there were those who wished that everyone would just let Whitney rest in piece. While I did feel like things may have gone to far when we were reading her autopsy report which described every square inch of her body, I felt that a lot of people needed closure. When Pat Houston, Gary Houston and Bobbi Kristina did an Oprah interview, I personally felt it was awfully soon. Then others said that it helped give them closure. But the news I got today that Pat, Gary, Kristina, and Cissy have all been filming a reality show for Lifetime really sits with me the wrong way.
