Picture from the Whitney Houston Biopic Released and I Have Questions About Bobby Brown

Angela Bassett is making her directorial debut with a biopic on the life of Whitney Houston for Lifetime. The only reason I’d want to check it out so soon is that she’s the one involved with it, cuz you know my feelings are still hurt that Nippy ain’t with us no more. YaYa DaCosta Alafia is playing Whitney and that works for me because she favors her a little. I’ve also been a YaYa fan since the America’s Next Top Model days.

They just released a picture of the faux Whitney and Bobby (played by Arlen Escarpata) on set. Look at this.

Whitney-Houston-biopic-bobby-brown-3

YESSSS to YaYa. Here for it. Here for her. Now for the homeboy behind her that’s supposed to be Bobby. I call shenanigans.

First of all: this hair. That hairhat they got on fake Bobby Brown is really not what life is about. At all. He couldn’t grow a Gumby himself? They had to drop a piece of Malaysian silky post-curl on his scalp to make this happen? They slapped Eric LaSalle’s soul glo wig from “Coming to America” after they gave it a weak gumby trim on dude’s head and said TADA! We crown you Bobby! Those curls are all delicate and tender. NOPE! That’s not even how it went in real life!

Also, how is the dude who is playing Bobby Brown gon have perfect teeth that are all white and glistening? Was accuracy busy? Did truth go on vacay? Why didn’t the props department get him a fake gap? Why were they so unable to gap? You can’t be missing Bobby’s signature feature like this. This dude’s teeth are almost as nice as YaYa and we all know Whitney carried the dentistry in this relationship. Again, I call boolsheet on that. He doesn’t look remotely like Bobby. Even when I squint and turn my head to the right 38 degrees.

But let’s talk about how Bobbi Kristina was all pissed off that she wasn’t asked to play her mama in this biopic. When Entertainment Weekly asked Angela Bassett, she understandably said that they wanted a real actress to play the legend, and since BK wasn’t one, she wasn’t considered.

“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.”

Angie didn’t even say it all shady or anything. Well, Whitney’s daughter didn’t take to that kindly and she went on Twitter to roast (or try) Lady Bassett.

Bobbi Kris Dissing Angela Bassett

WAYMENT. Wait a doggone minute. Bobbi Kris looks like Bobby spit her out through those front teeth gap and has the nerve to call someone manly. Ma’am, your mirror called and said you look just like your daddeh! STAHP! Don’t play these bald-headed games. Keep it cute, Bobbi Kris. Keep it reallll cute.

She ain’t got the right to try to go in on Goddess Angela. She just does not. Who is her mentor? Where is her guidance? The onliest thing Bobbi Kris could play Whitney in is Monopoly or Taboo. But I’m sleep. (-_-)

Chile, I’ma watch this biopic and livetweet it. If nothing else, the tweets about it will be golden.

So whatchu think about the casting for this film? Let a G know.

    That scurl (yes, scurl) on lil buddy’s head gives me all kinds of #snapsforthekids feels. I don’t see any of the “bad boy Bobby” in this “I’m going with my bestie to the junior high prom” pose. No sir, I’m not here for it! Bobbi Kris looks more manly than this one here, but I ain’t one to gossip, so you ain’t hear it from me.

      July 14, 2014 at 4:57 pm

      SCurl was the first thing I thought too when I saw that picture. As I recall Bobby had many Prerogatives but an SCurl was not one of them. I do not recall curl juice dripping down his face with Every Little Step he took while Rockin’ with his Roni but that may just be my memory, I was only 13/14 when I heard those songs and saw the videos.

      YES! to everything you said. This dude’s swag (are the kids still saying that these days) is NOTHING like Bobby’s back in the day. In fact, he’s failing successfully at having no swag at all. I’m here for Yaya as Whitney though.

      I concur. I’m not going to nitpick over these minor issues such as gap and his scurl (maybe that Gumby hat was closer to the texture of the actor’s hair). Anyways, if Mr. Man nails it and gets the essence of Bobby then so be it, I’m there. As for Ms. No Kind of Proper Upbringing, SHAME ON YOU! Ms. Cissy would not be happy that her grandchild grew into such a horribly disrespectful woman.

    I’ll pass on commenting about the casting…I am still hurt that she just up and left us like that…BUT Ms. Bobbi. Kristina. Brown. have all of the seats please.
    We all know that child never even met a comb until she was 16 years old. Love her parents for their talent, but bless her heart, they always had her out at award shows looking like she’d just played in a field, straw and fur, and tumbleweeds and all. Even now she mostly looks a hot mess. She needs people, she needs guidance, and she needs a stylist on speed dial.
    Have you ever seen Angela’s arms though? I would not want to get momma slapped by her, and that is where Bobbi K is headed. Just Stahp It.

    • July 14, 2014 at 4:08 pm

      Not a comb till she was 16! Ahahahahaha! Perhaps it happened like this?
      BK: What is that strange creature?
      Stylist: It’s a comb, sweetheart. Say it with me: COMB.
      BK: Coma?
      Stylist: Comb, girl, COMB!

    dem curls so aint bobbie but i’m thinking bobbie jr. might want to have several seats. everything isn’t for everybody, such as acting and singing. she might want to stick to being the child of a deceased beloved singer and leave the social media bashing to the professionals.

    “Was Accuracy Busy?” … I seriously can’t stop laughing!
    Okay, besides the janky wig, I give casting Arlen Escarpeta 2 thumbs up. The kid is a good actor. He can’t help it if he’s not that bad looking… And there is a very good chance that he couldn’t grow a Gumby, because he’s 33. He might not have it like that in the hair growth dept. anymore. What probably happened was that they used some of the hair from one of Whitney’s other era wigs on him… to save money.

    And to Shellee, who said BK should play her daddy? If I get fired from my job for Laughing OUT LOUD, I blame YOU!!!

  16. July 14, 2014 at 4:11 pm

    I don’t know.. I don’t think we should expect people to “look” the part, but be able to act the part.

    I don’t know nuffin about the tooth gap except to say I’m pretty sure that will all be handled. These pics are out here to get people talking about the movie – mission accomplished. I don’t know why the gumby was thrown on and not the gap, but I’d expect something like that takes more time.

    I’ve said “I don’t know” a lot up in here, but I do know I’d rather the look be off and the acting on point than the other way around. AND I know Bobbi K. don’t know she messing with class. Ms. Angela coulda gave her the shoulder shrug and moved on cuz we all know why BK didn’t get that part.

    • jimmy
      July 14, 2014 at 6:40 pm

      I agree. Remember Angela played Tina Turner. Ms. Bassett does not look like Tina, but she played the dog shit out of that role.

      As far as BK, I have my special belt called the Brown Bomber waiting for her. When she acts like an adult, we’ll treat her like one. Her little smart mouth making dumb comments. She is mad at the world and all we’ve done was show her support because of her mother.

      • Prettydarkskinnedgirl
        July 18, 2014 at 3:04 am

        But can she at least be mad at the world using decent grammar & proper English in 140 characters or less? I’m just saying …Madam Bassett didn’t realize BK came for her because she couldn’t decipher that boolsheet!

  17. nichole
    July 14, 2014 at 4:21 pm

    I think Angela Bassett wanted in this biopic to make it a classy story of Whitney’s life. Of course, BK proved to the world why Angela didnt’ select her.

    Simply stated
    Smart choice, Angela.

  21. July 14, 2014 at 4:40 pm

    Here are my thoughts.

    Bobby had a THUG swag back then. This dude looks like he wants to bake Whitney some cookies and go for a walk through a field of daisies.

    If you’re a black dude you should be able to grow a Gumby naturally. Shoot, I’m a chick and a month without the creamy crack I start growing a Gumby!

    I’m sure he’s a nice young man and all, but I want the guy who plays Bobby to spring my mind back to the days when one of Bobby’s dance moves could get you pregnant. This dude don’t do dat!

    I want this movie to be good! I NEED this movie to be good. Whitney deserves it!

    I’m through!

    Oh and BTW Luvvie, your review of had me rolling! LOL!

    THIS: “That hairhat they got on fake Bobby Brown is really not what life is about.”

    And THIS! LOL! “Don’t play these bald-headed games. Keep it cute, Bobbi Kris. Keep it reallll cute.”

      “I’m sure he’s a nice young man and all, but I want the guy who plays Bobby to spring my mind back to the days when one of Bobby’s dance moves could get you pregnant”. YES!!!!! Bobby had those “I’ll have you walking like you got rickets” kind of moves. He was a good kind of nasty. I can’t see this guy giving us that kind of performance. You either got that kind of swag or you don’t there ain’t that much acting in the world.

      • July 15, 2014 at 11:49 am

        Right???!! LOL! I hope he surprises us though or maybe the producers will double-back and get his wig right so he can at least look a little more like him!

  22. milaxx
    July 14, 2014 at 4:43 pm

    As far as casting Yaya – yes. That Bobby impersonation – no. Angela should call Ted Gibson and ask him where he gets those pieces he uses for Queen Lupita.

    As for Bobbi K, can call Amanda Bynes parents or Jesus or somebody to come help this chile. She is clearly delusional.

  23. July 14, 2014 at 4:51 pm

    Um, the King of R&B did not have an S-Curl in his Gumby and that actor bears no resemblance to him at all. He may still do the role justice, but Anna Mae, er, Angela Bassett did a great job casting Whitney.

    Now as for this disrespectful little girl who doesn’t have sense enough to pour piss out of a boot straight yet dares to come for a legend, she needs to go find some manners and clue. I was willing to cut her some slack because I know she is grieving, but I did not like how she had nerve to criticize her granny for writing her book about Whitney. Someone needs to snatch her up and make her apologize and get off social media. She is going to meet a bad end at this rate — I am not wishing anything on her, but she is out of control.

    They better take her back to that church in Newark where the funeral was held and let those church mothers get her together.

    Well this Bobby is to perfect looking and the hair is all wrong. Bobby had a fade cut to the Gumby style and it worked for him and the daughter miss Bobbi sit down why would she want to play her mom there are some things a child should not want to see again. Hint, the parent’s out of control drug problem for one.

  37. Camille
    July 14, 2014 at 9:14 pm

    He needs a different hair and makeup team to make him look like Bobby. He looks like the version of Bobby people thought Whitney should be with. Y’all remember how some folks were bent out of shape when they got together, because they thought she was this proper Pop Princess and they didn’t think she should be with the Boston project child.

    And speaking of child, BK needs to go sit down somewhere and hush. Ms. Davis was polite about her response. She could have made a note of who her parent are, how she has behaved in the past, and that she didn’t want to run the risk of unnecessary drama and foolishness on her set.

  38. Raphaloujo
    July 14, 2014 at 10:17 pm

    LOL! ROTF. I can’t. But girl you are so right. Yaya Decosta is dead on Whitney, but Bobby Brown…. No! and Bobbi Kristina needs to have a seat… a seat right in the Dental office. how dare she speak to Angela in that way. Total disrespect, and no regard for her elders.

    Methinks Yaya was a great choice to play Nippy. This guy…. Ehhh, not so much. I think Mishon or Kevin McCall should have been cast for Bobby. But hell, we’ll see how he does.

    As for Bobbi Kristina Brown… That heffa needs a PEW, not just a seat! The fact that she dissed Angela Bassett, SMH. She is unruly and disrespectful. Angela has more talent in her left pinky toe than Bobbi Kris. If Bobbi Kristina doesn’t pump her brakes IMMEJIATELY, she’s well on her way to becoming the black Lindsay Lohan. SADDOWN SOMEWHERE AND HUSHUP!

    Someone above hit it on the head regarding this Bobby Brown casting. Arlen Escarpata looks like a more polished Bobby Brown (which actually isn’t a problem for me).

    For those who this is a problem for, however… I’d bet the right make-up and hair people who could do a better job of creating a realistic grill and gumby cut would have Arlen looking more like Mr. Brown. Because to me, those 2 key elements are all that’s missing from the BB character above.

    But like others have mentioned above, if he nails his part with his acting, I’m not even gonna care!

      For clarification…

      “Because to me, those 2 key elements are all that’s missing from the BB character above.”

      I meant as far as the picture posted above goes, that’s all that’s missing…FOR ME.

    Ima watch this one hope there is music and dancing and it’s on point. Can’t have that story without music. Bobby Kris should know better. If her Momma was here she would have remembered her home training.

    With that response on twitter unless she is producing her own and is a legitimate student of the arts I’ll be waiting. Wanting and doing is another thing. BK saw when her Momma had yet seem to forget the work her Mom put into it or did she miss that step?

    Now on to the real question, “What happened to Eric LaSalle?” Seems like he did ER and fell of the map permanently.

    I am not a fan of Lifetime movies at all. But with that being said, I love Angela Bassett and i want to see this movie. I think casting YaYa was an excellent choice. But I gave the casting of Bobby the side eye. And yes that curl business is crazy looking. But you had me laughing at “Don’t play these bald headed games, Keep it cute.” This was entertaining. Thanx for the laughs.

    i love whitney as much as the next bandwagon fan, but i need everybody in this to just step back. you don’t do a superstar like whitney in 21 days. someone should have said no to that. but what do i know. if you can dissect and re-tell whitney’s life in 21 days, i guess all you need for my life would be a bathroom break.

    Keke Palmer should have played Witney.

    The first thing that hit me in this picture was the Hollywood version of Bobby Brown. I was like the man was never that cute, I mean NEVER. But well, at least they didn’t whitewash him. As for Bobbi Kristina, that girl need to take a sit and have her mouth glued. At this point, that’s the best thing that could happen to her ’cause she’s nuts.
