Tyler Perry Gives Whitney Houston’s Daughter Bobby Kristina Role In “For Better Or Worse”

Tyler Perry Gives Whitney Houston's Daughter Bobby Kristina Role In "For Better Or Worse"

Following the well-publicized tragic death of her mother Whitney Houston, and its aftermath, 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina has reportedly been offered a part in the upcoming season of Tyler Perry’s TBS sitcom, For Better Or Worse, which stars Tasha Smith and Michael Jai White – based on the characters from Perry’s Why Did I Get Married franchise of flicks.

Bobby Kristina’s role will be a reoccurring one, playing the daughter of one of the stylists who works in the salon run by Angela Williams, played by Tasha Smith.

She certainly isn’t doing it for the money, because, as already reported, her mother Whitney left her entire fortune in her will to Bobby Kristina; and although I haven’t read any figures yet, I’d say that fortune is likely valued in the millions of dollars.

And despite my aversion to Tyler Perry and his films primarily, he’s certainly been very supportive of the late singer’s family since she passed, and maybe this is another way he’s assisting with Bobby Kristina’s adjusting to life after her mother’s death… or maybe not.

I watched two episodes of For Better Or Worse, and had no interest in seeing more.
