Bobbi Kristina Brown debuts as an actress in Tyler Perry’s sitcom For Better Or Worse
Bobbi Kristina Brown, Whitney Houston’s daughter, simply shines in a new preview of Tyler Perry’s sitcom For Better Or Worse.
In her first major role as an actress, Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, is featured in a 30-second clip for the show, with the full episode airing tonight.
And it seems just like her late mother Whitney Houston, who famously starred in The Bodyguard in 1992, Bobbi Kristina Brown is a natural.
While she is only seen briefly in the video, Bobbi Kristina Brown appears completely at ease in front of the camera.
The episode revolves around the lead women, Angela and Leslie, who are looking for a man for their friend Jennifer.
Bobbi Kristina Brown is playing the daughter of a stylist who works in a beauty salon run by Angela, and tells the ladies: “You two are setting yourselves up for a disaster.”
In another brief scene, Bobbi Kristina Brown is seen standing between the two women, stating: “Whoa, that is not a great idea.”
Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse is an American comedy-drama series created and produced by the playwright, director and producer and premiered in November 2011.
The comedic series is based on Tyler Perry’s hit films, Why Did I Get Married? and Why Did I Get Married Too?
The show focuses on the antics of couples Marcus and Angela Williams, Joseph and Leslie, and Richard and Keisha.
Earlier this year, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s appearance on the show was shrouded in controversy.
The only daughter of Whitney Houston was reported to have stormed off the set in a flood of tears.
But Tyler Perry, 42, later denied that she broke down whilst working on his new sitcom.
He rushed to the teen’s defense on his website.
“There is no way that she could have walked off the set because we have finished taping the season,” he told his fans at the time.
He added that as she had just lost her mother, that understandably there were difficult days.
“Were there tough days for her? Yes of course. Not because of the acting or any job-related issues but because of the fact that she had just lost her mother,” Tyler Perry wrote.
“So yes she was grieving, but grief aside, she managed to finish her obligation and did a great job at the same time.”
He also asked that people give Bobbi Kristina Brown a break.
“PLEASE LEAVE THIS BABY ALONE!!!! AND SHE IS A BABY!!! Please stop the lies and give this child some room to breathe and grieve.”
It was announced in March that Bobbi Kristina Brown had landed the part in Tyler Perry’s TBS sitcom.
Tyler Perry, who spoke at Whitney Houston’s funeral, explained why he gave Bobbi Kristina Brown the role.
“After Whitney’s funeral, Krissi and I spent a long time talking about her goals and dreams. She said she wanted to act. That’s when I decided to write her into <<For Better Or Worse>>,” he wrote.
“I thought that there would be no better way for me to help her move through the grieving than by giving her something to focus on.”
Whitney Houston died on February 11, at the age of 48.
The singer was found unresponsive in the bathtub of room 434 at the Beverly Hilton.
Authorities called her death an accidental drowning, complicated by heart disease and cocaine use.
