The Lifetime network is having a rather horrible summer. The longstanding network has been in a media storm- and the press and public have been anything but kind. Earlier in the month when news broke that Zendaya was cast in the Lifetime produced biopic of the late singer Aaliyah the network and Zendaya were pummeled with disdain and negative press. Fast forward to a week ago, soon after the network announced their plans of producing a Whitney Houston biopic things turned ugly again. This time the family of the deceased star were the unhappy ones. Whitney’s daughter Bobbi Kristina stuck her claws into Director Angela Bassett last week yet she is now retracting and apologizing.

Bassett, who is set to make her directorial debut with the unauthorized Lifetime telepic, said she hadn’t considered casting Bobbi Kristina in the role of her mother because “she’s not an actress.” Truth is, the 20-year-old, who made her acting debut on an episode of Tyler Perry’s for Better or Worse, and used social media to call Bassett a “bitc*”.

After some significant backlash this weekend Bobbi took to twitter to apologize. “I’m a young woman who can admit her wrongs,” Brown tweeted. “4who was offended I apologize BUT understand me before your quick to judge though.”

Reportedly, the Houston family still plans to try and cease production on the film. And with that, it seems like the drama will continue…
