whitney-houston-bobby-brown-lifetime

Last week saw the masses given the first look at actress Yaya DaCosta in her role as Whitney Houston in Lifetime‘s hotly anticipated biopic on the late diva.

Today, though, brings with it a sneak peek at DaCosta and co-star Arlen Escarpeta – who plays Houston’s controversial ex-husband Bobby Brown

Interestingly, the movie – which is being directed by Whitney’s Waiting To Exhale co-star Angela Bassett  won’t chronicle the entirety of the singer’s life or death. Instead, the telepic will play out the headline-grabbing relationship between Houston and Brown – from the time they first met at the very height of their celebrity, to their courtship and roller-coaster marriage.

Tentatively titled ‘Whitney’, the film is currently shooting and is slated for a 2015 debut.

‘Clueless’ actress Stacey Dash may have liked Kanye West enough to star in his ‘All Falls Down’ visual back in 2004, but a decade later it would seem things have changed…a great deal.
