Bobbi Kristina, daughter of the late pop icon Whitney Houston and R&B bad boy Bobby Brown, has secured a verbal deal for a cable network reality show, reports Radar Online.

The particulars of the contract are still being negotiated. A source close to the project told the website that the deal is almost done, but it will probably result in lots of drama for the young woman.
“This show is being done against her family’s advice,” the source said but also implied, that the show could very well be fraught with problems that stem from Bobbi Kristina’s battles with booze and drugs.

Bobbi Kristina’s parents dealt with drug demons throughout most of her upbringing. Whitney and Bobby spiraled into substance abuse addictions, suffered career stalls and endured marriage problems as a result. Whitney died earlier this year and an autopsy report concluded that the singer had traces of cocaine, marijuana and prescription drugs in her system.
Reportedly, network bosses think that Bobbi Kristina’s show will be a surefire hit because the public is curious about her life. But the insider says viewers might be shocked as to what could very well appear on their screens, a young woman who is probably not in control of her life.
“Bobbi is scared the world will label her just like her mother,” one source close to the project told Radar Online, adding that she is “obviously very wild and misguided.”
Bobbi Kristina had a recent meeting with a network exec where she allegedly appeared to be under the influence of something. According to the source, “She was slurring her words and said: ‘I will show the world I am NOT my mother and will NOT walk in her shoes down her path,’ then seconds later would mutter, ‘My mother was just normal, completely normal, someone who did normal things. She just listened to all the wrong people–and did the wrong things.’”
The show is also expected to feature the folks who hung around Whitney, as well as Nick Gordon, whom Whitney considered to be a stepson and is now allegedly engaged to Bobbi Kristina.
Bobbi Kristina is geared up to have those cameras rolling in her face and she supposedly told the source, “Something good might as well come out of all this bad stuff.”
