Demetria McKinney To Star as Whitney Houston In Bobbi Kristina Biopic
Well, I can’t say I saw this one coming. Demetria McKinney just revealed that she snagged a role as the late Whitney Houston in upcoming Bobbi Kristina biopic.
As we all know, it’s been 5 long years since we lost Whitney Houston and a little over a year, July 26, 2015, since Bobbi left us as well. Ever since Whitney passed, her daughter Bobbi Kristina just never seemed to get it together and couldn’t cope.
TV One is set to release the journey of the young BK in an upcoming biopic.
“TV One feels like they can tell her story in a way that will resonate with fans,” a source said. “There’s so much about her life that some people didn’t know about — outside of the headlines. They think they can pull it off.”
Bobbi will be played by “New Edition Story” star Joy Rovaris Sharma. Also among the cast will be Vivica A. Fox who will play Pat Houston.
Although some folks don’t understand why Whitney’s daughter is getting a biopic, I’m certainly here for it.
Production is set to start later this month. Will you be watching?
