Whitney Houston’s Daughter Bobbi Kristina slams Angela Bassett



Bobbi Kristina & Angela Bassett - BN Movies & TV - June 2014 - 01
Bobbi Kristina is so not happy about the upcoming Lifetime Network movie about her mother.

Over the weekend, the daughter of the late R&B superstar Whitney Houston took to her official Twitter account to speak about about the flick to be directed by Angela Bassett.

What made her lash out at the American Horror Story actress?

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Angela spoke about why she never thought of selecting Bobbi to play her famous mother.

“I did not think about casting her. 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,” she said.

Angela later concluded by saying,

“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.”

And Bobbi wasn’t having it.

She called her out on the social networking site, tweeting “Ha MsAng “bassketcase” has such a damn nerve my lord, at least the world doesn’t mistake me for the wrong sex…she has some #XtraEquipment”

Bobbi followed up with another, “When I win my first Grammy or Oscar, *Shrugs* hmm whichever comes 1st, I’ll be sure 2shout URname out b***h! Hah UrTestResults = Male. Lmao.”

    From the look of things, Angela made the right decision. I dont think bobbie even knows her left from her right yet.

    What’s wrong with Bobbi. How can she be dissing Angela Bassett. Angela is a veteran in acting and she should respect her views. Someone that is old enough to be her mother. The funny thing is Angela wasn’t even dissing her so what’s the beef. completely unnecessary. She is rude and ill-mannered

    This is the result of bad upbringing.

    Good decision Angela, Bobbi Kristina is so immature, and it is really annoying, when you are watching a film, and majority of the people acting in it are not genuine actors(They are just in the film, because of nepotism etc). Good call, @ Bobbi Kristina, you need to grow up, and have respect for your elders smh!!

    I hope Angela Bassett decides to simply IGNORE this small pickin who no get the sense wey God give fly. The weed she spends time smoking with her fiancé/brother is causing her brains to look like Swiss cheese.

    Bassett was wrong in publicly dissing the girl, even if she is a child which she isn’t.

      Where did she diss her? There’s a difference between dissing someone and speaking on facts.

      Please explain where there is a “diss” to this young lady that warrants her calling a woman old enough to be her mother a bi**h? Angela spoke from her stance as a PROFESSIONAL when she was questioned about her casting choice by a reputable entertainment weekly magazine/show. Let me break it down to you, Angela has NEVER directed before and this will be her debut. She already has enough on her plate as it and she’s shooting what amounts to the length of a feature film in 21 days which means that she needs a professional who will come in and knock out the work. She doesn’t have time to hold the hands of a person who is NOT a trained working actor. If you know a little bit of the life of Whitney Houston, you would know that her life was complicated in that she was one part angel, what part troubled soul; one part class act, one part hood chick. It takes a skilled actor to be able to walk that thin line without turning it into a caricature. It is not about memorizing lines, it is about bringing the character to LIFE by truly living and experiencing her highs and lows. This is not a reality show or a music video or a small cameo appearance. She would be carrying the movie as the pivotal character and lead.

      If you are putting together a party on short notice, are you going to hire a caterer who is established or some young kid who likes to cook but has never been to culinary school because her mother is your best friend? She has got some gall to think that because the story is about her mother she should automatically be entitled to play the part. She doesn’t even have the physical appearance to play her own mother because let’s face it, she looks like her father, she’s pudgy and she’s short let’s be real! The person picked for the role LOOKS like Whitney, has the slim, tall, svelte build and she is a GOOD ACTRESS who has been in many productions and has proven her mettle aka earned the right to have been selected.

      I am sure that Angela wants to make good on this project so that she can be hired to direct other movies for Lifetime and other channels. If she boggles this one, and she is close to this story since she was friends with Whitney, then she is dead in the water before her directing career take off.

      WHO ARE YOU, Naveah? Pow! You killed it. Spot on. Nonsense. She thinks it’s by spouting rubbish on social media that you get Oscars and Grammies? She should go and ask her dad, shebi he’s kuku still alive. Silly child that doesn’t know that with a bit of touching up and brushing up here and there, she could ride on her late mum’s good will and contacts and make something of herself. Talk about burning bridges before you even set out on your journey.

      Forget the fact that she is a ‘child’ (not anymore) or Basset is old enough to be her mother; this is her late mother’s life story we are talking about here. Please all of you should stop talking ill of Bobbi.

      You are obviously no brainchild from what you just written. She did not diss Bobbi, she just stated the reason why she wasn’t cast to play her mum, which is a very strong role to play. Read and assimilate properly next time.

    Am sure Basset was asked publicly why she di d not choose the immature adult as such her public answer. Part of 9ja problem is painting words, say it as it is!!!!

    This pikin sef, marrying or married to a half brother or step brother (regardless that they are not blood) the boy was raised in your family home as your brother and now he is husband material. Secondly, she is nowhere near being called an actress, reality TV is not accomplished acting, as for her winning a Grammy/Oscar, I seriously doubt that very much from where I am standing. She needs to respect herself first and then learn to respect others, with this kind of trash talking, id safely say her career in film is dead and buried before it even started. I admire Angela and I am dead sure she will not respond to this mess. Angela is a mature and well accomplished actress and she said nothing but the truth. Good call, I wouldn’t even want to watch it if this pikin was in it sef.

    Look at the little girl (bobbi) insulting a legendary (Angels bassett), Like isn’t she a child of 1990 or something, see small rat, these American kids have no respect for their elders, shes got some nerves. Truly Bobbi doesn’t have what it takes to act a movie about Whitney, truth be told. A professional actress would do.
