JumpinJack AJ posted a topic in Caught in the MiddleWhitney Houston's family: Lifetime movie is 'disrespectful and dishonest' By Jean Bentley Jan 16th, 2015 Whitney Houston's sister, Pat Houston, is not pleased with Lifetime's movie, "Whitney," about the late singer's life (and death). Houston, who manages her sister's estate, issued a statement speaking out against the film she believes is "wrong." "It is easy to turn a blind eye to other people if you're not careful. But the needs of Whitney's family matter," she writes. "We matter. We're still here. Why wasn't there a call to myself, Gary, Cissy or even her daughter? Why deny selected members of the family an advanced copy of the film?" Houston calls the release of the film "a disappointment that any of us who loved her could do without. This creative pursuit at the expense of the integrity of such an iconic woman, who is voiceless today, reeks of condemnation and deceit. It reeks of enslavement to an industry that will likely do the same to you one day." Then, after dissing Lifetime's low-budget movies ("Lifetime is notorious for making bad biopics of deceased celebrities"), Houston then alludes to director Angela Bassett. "Misrepresenting the term friendship to advance an agenda is not only disrespectful and dishonest but a slap in the face to her true and loyal friends," she writes. "I question the morality of the making of this because of the lack of experience knowing Whitney's life." She continues, "Never would Whitney allow her story to be told by an inexperienced team and how naive of anyone to think otherwise, unless you're caught up in illusions of grandeur that you can just do anything and people will accept it. This made for TV movie is certainly not a trailer to Whitney's life story." http://www.zap2it.com/blogs/whitney_houstons_family_lifetime_movie_disrespectful_dishonest-2015-01

Davis, who was often present for her "incredible live performances," said "it was a marvel that she was as powerful and as incredible as she was. But bittersweet that she died too young." Houston died on Feb. 11, 2012, at age 48. Whitney Houston, 1963-2012 Kevin Winter Born into a musical family, the singer's stunning voice wowed many, but drug use, erratic behavior and a tumultuous marriage ravaged her image. The release comes with the blessing of Houston's family, including her mother Cissy, who Davis said helped him assemble the tracks. "This is her legacy," Davis said of Houston.
