Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, 19, is set to star in her own reality TV show titled “The Houstons On Our Own,” on Lifetime television on Oct. 24. The reality show will follow Bobbi Kristina’s life after Whitney’s sudden death of an accidental drowning earlier this year.

Also appearing in the program is Bobbi K.’s longtime boyfriend, Nick Gordon; her grandmother, Cissy Houston, Pat Houston, who is married to Whitney Houston’s brother, Gary; and Pat’s daughter. According to a source close to the show’s production company, Whitney never officially adopted Nick Gordon as her son, which dispels the stories about Bobbi K. and Nick engaging in an incestuous relationship.

Pat Houston described the reality show in a statement released earlier this year: “I have been working with Simmons-Shelley over the past few years developing a project suitable for myself and our family,” Pat Houston said. “The unexpected passing of Whitney certainly affects the direction of the show. However, it is my hope that others will be enlightened as they watch our family heal and move forward.”

Bobbi Kristina made her acting debut on Tyler Perry’s ‘For Better or Worse’ in July.

The episode also called attention to a dangerous fad — specifically colonics, or colon cleansing. Tameka “Tiny” Harris‘ hair stylist Shekinah subjected herself to a colonic for laughs, but it is not a laughing matter when colonics introduce deadly bacteria into the colon or rupture the colon.
