Bobbi Kristina Shares Engagement News To Houston Family On Reality Show

Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina is making her reality debut as she joins her family on Lifetime’s “The Houstons: On Our Own” and reportedly confirms her engagement to Nick Gordon.

The anticipated show which will follow the lives of the Houston family is schedule to air on Lifetime on October 24, and the Houston family has finally released their first promo and superteaser.

The series of clips from the show reveal some surprising footage, including one of Bobbi Kristina’s confessional clips in which she states, “It’s kinda like Charlie Brown. All I’m hearing is womp womp womp bulls**t womp,” after being advised that she needs to find another life outside of just having a boyfriend.

The next series of clips show sneak peaks into the trials that come with trying to raise Whitney Houston’s only daughter especially as she tries to walk through life without her mother.

In addition to following Bobbi’s challenges, the show also features the rest of the Houston family including grandmother Cissy, uncle Gary, aunt Pat, cousin Rayah, and of course Bobbi’s boyfriend Nick Gordon. A clip in the promo shows the family responding to the news of Bobbi and Nick’s engagement. Uncle Gary states, “No one knew that from a godson, you would turn into a boyfriend.” Pat Houston added, “An engagement? This is unacceptable.”

Bobbi and Nick may not be engaged after all. The series was filmed weeks ago with some scenes over a month ago. Sources revealed prior to the release of the promo that the couple in fact called off their engagement.

“Bobbi and Nick really love each other,” revealed one source. “But they just can’t figure out how they want to define their relationship. Bobbi felt like she got swept up in the moment because she was going through a lot of emotions after Whitney’s death. But they’re in love and still together, just not engaged.”

The last series of clips in the promo reveal many tear filled moments with several of the Houston family members discussing what is the next move in raising Whitney’s only daughter.

Pat Houston, who was also the legendary R&B singer’s manager, has “inherited another daughter” and takes on most of the responsibility when it comes to caring for Krissy.

The series contains 14 half-hour episodes which all reveal the drama and emotional rollercoaster that the Houston family has been forced to endure after the “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” songstress died back in February of this year.

Viewers can also expect to learn more about Krissy’s grandmother challenging her rights to her multimillion dollar inheritance.

Earlier this week Cissy explained that she felt the large inheritance would expose Bobbi to a lot of negativity, and she felt as if Whitney’s daughter was not quite mature enough to handle that.

Before Lifetime premieres the new reality show, however, they will first air a tribute special titled “Remembering Whitney” on October 17 with unseen footage of the R&B icon along with interviews of her 19-year-old daughter.

With so much sympathy and respect for the Houston family and what they are going through, one can only hope that the reality show will do much better than Bobbi’s dad’s reality show “Being Bobby Brown.”

The tricky part will be exposing the family’s lives in a way that doesn’t at the same time make it seem as if they are exploiting Whitney’s death in order to make a profit.

The series will premiere in two weeks on Wednesday, October 24, at 9 pm with back-to-back episodes.
