ET recently had the opportunity to visit the set of the Whitney Houston biopic, which is expected to premier on Lifetime sometime next year. They spoke with Angela Bassett and she responded to the reaction of fans and also the family of Whitney. ET also had the pleasure of speaking with Yaya DaCosta and Deborah Cox and also received their reactions. The camera was able to catch a glimpse of Yaya in action as she is set to portray Whitney on film. Cissy Houston spoke out for the first time and shared her thoughts on the upcoming film, she said:
“Lifetime has chosen to go ahead with the movie about Whitney in spite of my family’s objections. No one connected with this movie knew Whitney or anything about her relationship with Bobby,” she said in a statement to ET. “In the two years since Whitney’s death, many people have stepped forward to speak about their close relationship with her. I find it difficult to believe people who knew and supposedly loved her would participate in a movie about her done by folks who didn’t know her. We are exhausted by the continuing misinformation and comments offered by people who did not know her. Please please let her rest.”
