Well I can’t say I saw this one coming.  The family of Whitney Houston has decided to sign on for a reality show about their process of grieving and moving on following Whitney’s death.

“The Houston Family Chronicles” is a new docu-series that was picked up by the Lifetime network.  It will follow the lives of Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law and manager, who now manages her estate; Pat’s daughter Rayah; Whitney’s brother Gary; Whitney’s mother, Grammy-winning singer Cissy Houston and of course her daughter Bobbi Krisitna.

The series will follow Pat and her husband, Gary, as they try to support Whitney’s teenage daughter Bobbi Kristina. In that, Pat enlists the help of her and Whitney’s inner circle, including Grammy-winner Dionne Warwick and gospel legend CeCe Winans.

According to Pat Houston she had already been developing an unscripted project (reality show) for years about her family but the unexpected death of  Whitny changed the show’s direction.

“The unexpected passing of Whitney certainly affects the direction of the show,” she said. “However, it is my hope that others will be enlightened as they watch our family heal and move forward.
