Ok. *deep breath* I take these things waaaaay too personal. Like the execs at a major television company are going to consult me on their casting decisions for upcoming projects.
BUT. Come on.
It has been announced that Lifetime is making a biopic about Whitney Houston's life. It will focus on her early career and relationship with Bobby Brown. Angela Bassett (heart!) is set to direct the highly-anticipated made-for-TV movie. (Say what you will about Whitney and her crack, but that woman had a tremendous gift.)
As a former “America's Next Top Model” binge watcher, (also on Lifetime... co-inky-dink?? I think not), I am unhappy about who was cast as Whitney. Very unhappy. Extremely unhappy.
Like. Are you KIDDING me?!
Blarg. Oh well. Nobody consulted me when making the movies about Princess Di or Elizabeth Taylor, either. (Please note: both films were HUGE bombs. Just sayin.)
Should a studio get any wild hairs to make something about Jewel or Judy Garland, please call me.
