I know everyone is excited and anticipating the LifeTime network Whitney film tomorrow myself included but even more riveting will be the nterview with Whitney’s Ex -Husband and some may say a person who knew her best , Bobby Brown .Scheduled to air this Tomorrow at 10:00pm ET/PT, immediately following Whitney,Bobby Brown: Remembering Whitney will feature an exclusive, no-holds-barred interview between Houston’s ex-husband Bobby Brown and Shaun Robinson, weekend co-anchor and correspondent for Access Hollywood. The conversation will cover the couple’s powerfully intense relationship while divulging Brown’s first-hand account of their marriage, from their greatest accomplishments and happiest moments to what really drove their romance together…and apart. The special will be produced by Peacock Productions.
Whitney is Directed by Angela Bassett and starring Yaya DaCosta but all Houston’s vocal performances in the film are sung by Grammy®-nominated and multiplatinum-selling entertainer Deborah Cox. The music featured in the film includes Houston’s hits “The Greatest Love of All,” “I’m Your Baby Tonight,” “I’m Every Woman” and “I Will Always Love You” as well as Brown’s “Every Little Step.” Produced by The Sanitsky Company,Whitney is executive produced by Larry Sanitsky (Betty & Coretta). Shem Bitterman (Betty & Coretta) wrote the script.
In other news the star of “Whitney” Yaya Dacosta created #imeverywoman campaign in lieu of the premiere. Yaya thought it would be fitting to pay homage to some of the great women of the world, past and present, by literally becoming “every woman” even if just for a moment. She has reenactment Photos of Her as Pam Grier, Lucy, Frida, Naomi Campbell,Eartha Kitt, Nina Simone,Meryl Streep, and Audrey Hepburn.
One of my favorite things about Whitney is how she embraced and encouraged other women, urging us to love one another, appreciate one another, and see each other as reflections of ourselves.
