Bobbi Kristina Brown is also boycotting her grandmother’s tell-all book. Cissy Houston has written “Remembering Whitney,” a book about her daughter and says it’s an honest look at Whitney Houston’s life. But Bobbi Kristina says the book is “disrespectful” and has asked her fans not to read.
Meanwhile, her father, Bobby, is 44 years old and is no closer today to becoming a rational adult than he was five years ago.
If Bobby Brown is searching for a role model, he only needs to look to President Barack Obama, a father of two daughters who takes his responsibility as a black father seriously.
“He goes home for dinner every night; he is a present and involved father,” Valerie Jarrett, a White House Senior Adviser, said in an interview. Or Brown could listen to stories about “real fathers” on “The Tom Joyner Morning Show.”
Perhaps what Bobbi Kristina really needs is some distance between Brown and his destructive behavior, which, sadly, seems to be a family trend. Bobbi Kristina needs help – the kind of help a real father could provide. Unfortunately, her father, Bobby Brown, is an addict and needs help, too.
I don’t know what the future holds for Bobby and Kristina, but I do believe that Bobbi Kristina could have a chance at a normal life if only her father would just learn to grow up and be a responsible man.
I’m hopeful – but I’m not holding my breath.
