Bobbi Kristina Blasts Angela Bassett Over Whitney Houston Biopic

Bobbi Kristina and Angela Bassett

By Brennan Williams

In recent years Bobbi Kristina has expressed her interest to portray her mother, Whitney Houston, in a biopic. And with the announcement of Yaya DaCosta starring in Lifetime’s developing film based on the late icon, one may question director, Angela Bassett’s thoughts on the 21-year-old’s request.

During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Bassett opened up on whether or not Kristina was ever in consideration for the coveted role.

“No, I did not think about that. I did not think about casting her,” she admitted. “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.”

“It’s an attempt to illuminate the complexities of human behavior and life. And this is a very fast-paced schedule; we have just 21 days to tell this story. It’s more than just saying lines and turning the light on. You have to drive the story—there’s a technical aspect.”

As expected, Kristina did not take the Golden Globe award-winning actress’ candid comments lightly, as she took to her Twitter account over the weekend to blast the 55-year-old star by referring to her as a “bitch” and a “bassketcase” [SP].

Following her twitter rant, Bobbi Kristina has since deleted the tweets from her account.
