Bobbi Kristina, the daughter of late singer Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, is becoming a celebrity in her own right. The 19-year-old has been cast in a recurring role in Tyler Perry’s family sitcom “Better or Worse,” according to People. The series is based on Perry’s 2007 film “Why Did I Get Married?” and its sequel “Why Did I Get Married Too?” Radar reports that Bobbi will play the daughter of one of the stylists who works in the salon run by actress Tasha Smith.
The second season of “Better or Worse” is set to premiere in July on TBS.
Bobbi Kristina shared with Oprah on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” that she had plans to “carry on the legacy” of her late mother. “We’re gonna do the singing thing. Some acting, some dancing,” Bobbi Kristina said. “It’s a lot of pressure, but she prepared me for it.”
Whitney Houston was found dead at the age of 48 in a Beverly Hills hotel room on February 11 and she was laid to rest in her hometown of Newark, New Jersey, on February 18. Tyler Perry was among the stars on hand to pay homage to her at the funeral services.
