Angela Bassett Is Directing A Whitney Houston Biopic For Lifetime

May 23, 2014 / Posted by:

Can somebody please point me toward the direction of the nearest airbrush t-shirt mall store, because I need that picture on a t-shirt.

The masterpiece maker who brought us such classic television jewels like the Liz & Dick biopic, the Anna Nicole biopic, the Donatella Versace biopic and the June Carter Cash biopic will air a Whitney Houston biopic next year. I was hoping that Lifetime’s next biopic would be about the life of the Rhubarb Lady, but I’ll settle for a Nippy movie.

Deadline says that Angela Bassett will make her directorial debut with Whitney Houston (they should call it The Doody Bubble Diaries instead) and knowing Lifetime, it will shoot in 3 and a half days, have a budget of $2 and star Sheree from Real Housewives of Atlanta. The biopic will mainly be about Nippy’s messy relationship with Bobby B, which makes me ask the question, “For why don’t they just buy the rights to Being Bobby Brown and air that instead?” Angela released this statement about the movie:

“I have such regard for both Whitney’s and Bobby’s amazing talents and accomplishments; and I feel a responsibility in the telling of their story. Their humanity and bond fascinates us all. I’m beyond excited to have this opportunity to go behind the camera and into their world.”

No casting has been announced, but there’s only one woman who can and should play Nippy. I’m talking about DEBRA WILSON! Shit, Debra Wilson should also play Dionne Warwick, Cissy Houston and Baby Bobbi Kris. Debra Wilson can do it all!
