Is Pat Houston shady? Well according to the opinions of most, Whitney Houston’s sister in law is a little on the shady side, and many feel she is exploiting the death of the legendary singer who passed away tragically earlier this year. Although Pat Houston’s shady ways have only merely been rumored, many have held on to the assertion by her alleged behavior since the singer’s passing. Many felt it was in poor taste for Pat Houston to try to seek some sort of celebrity status through Whitney’s death. Since Whitney’s death, Pat has had several interviews and even been said to have gotten into an argument with Bobbi Kristina about who would be the one to speak during one of Whitney’s tributes. But it would be the family’s upcoming reality show that would make Pat Houston’s shady ways a topic of conversation again.
Although Pat Houston being shady is only based off opinions, many feel a reality show can only hurt Pat’s reputation even more. It’s been confirmed that Bobbi Kristina, Pat Houston and several others of the Houston family have secured their own reality show on A&E. The Houstons: On Our Own is set to premiere this Wednesday, and there is growing chatter that Pat Houston is exploiting Whitney’s Death through the show to establish her own celebrity status.
Well Pat Houston says she is not shady, and she even claims that the show is in no way a means to exploit Whitney Houston’s death.
“It’s not like that at all. A little over two years ago we shot a pilot called ‘Power Brokehers,’ with the ‘hers’ because it was about successful women and how they balance different parts of their lives.
She was one of the those women, and a number of Houston family members participated. That included Gary Houston, who is Whitney’s brother and Pat’s husband; Pat’s and Gary’s teenage daughter Rayah; and Whitney’s older teenage daughter, Bobbi Kristina, known as Krissy.
The original concept, says Pat Houston, was a positive show focusing on the ways women and their families work together.
“It was not anything like Bobby Brown’s show.”
Although Pat Houston promises that the show will be more positive than Bobby’s, many people still feel that Pat Houston is shady for taking it upon herself to create a reality show the same year of Whitney Houston’s death.
