Bobbi Kristina And Nick Gordon Relationship In Focus On ‘The Houstons’

Lifetime’s upcoming original series ‘The Houstons: On Our Own’ is set to premiere October 24th at 9/8c. The documentary-series will chronicle those closest to pop music icon Whitney Houston, including her daughter Bobbi Kristina and mother, Grammy Award-winning singer Cissy Houston. Others featured on the program are Whitney’s sister-in-law and manager Pat Houston and Pat’s daughter Rayah, Whitney’s brother Gary and family friend Nick Gordon.

“I didn’t see her as an idol,” Bobbi Kristina said about her mother. “The glam and the glitz. I didn’t see that. I saw a mom.”

Bobbi and Nick also talk about their controversy engagement in the preview clips, raising eyebrows since Nick was taken in by Whitney more than a decade ago and was considered the singing legend’s unofficial adopted son.

“The family has me out to be a bad person,” Nick complained in the teaser video. For her part, Bobbi said, “I’m in love with him. They want to see us fail. I’ve got one thing to say, you won’t.”

Whitney’s sister Pat said, “Not only do I have a 14-year-old daughter, I have inherited another daughter with a boyfriend.”
