In life, Whitney Houston was renown for not holding back her thoughts on any and everything. And it appears it’s a trait that has passed on to daughter Bobbi Kristina.
The 21-year-old has lashed out at acclaimed actress Angela Bassett – following comments the latter made about not casting Bobbi in the upcoming Lifetime biopic on Whitney that she’s directing.

When quizzed about Bobbi K’s omission from the film by Entertainment Weekly, the 55-year-old replied:
In uplifting her memory to the highest standard possible, did you ever think about casting her daughter Bobbi Kristina as Whitney herself?
No, I did not think about that. I did not think about casting her. And probably for a number of reasons, you know. One being that she’s not an actress. I know she’s acted here and there. I know she’s been on their family’s reality show, but she’s not an actress and acting is a craft. It’s an attempt to illuminate the complexities of human behavior and life. And this is a very fast-paced schedule; we have just 21 days to tell this story. It’s more than just saying lines and turning the light on. You have to drive the story—there’s a technical aspect.
No shade detected, right?
Well, it seems Bobbi did. She took to Twitter shortly after to lay into the ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ star. She said:
Messy, much? Unnecessary too. Clearly, Bobbi must feel some degree of truth about Bassett’s words; why else would she be so steam pressed over a comment that was more fact than a dig? Silly.
