The trailer for Lifetime’s new documentary Whitney Houston & Bobbi Kristina: Didn’t We Almost Have It All dropped today, detailing the special bond the mother and daughter shared and the tragic circumstances leading to their deaths.
The documentary features interviews from dozens of people close to Whitney Houston and her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown. Producer Randy Jackson speaks of Whitney’s image as a “pop princess,” while music executive and close family friend Perri “Pebbles” Reid discloses that “this is the first time I’ve ever spoken about Whitney.” The documentary then teases a darker glimpse into Whitney’s child. Tina Brown, sister of Bobbi Brown, is heard saying “When she was younger, she was made to do a lot of not so good things.”
The special also uncovers the parallels between Whitney and Bobbi Kristina’s deaths. Whitney Houston was found dead in her Beverly Hills hotel room on February 11, 2012, submerged in a bathtub. In January 2015, Bobbi Kristina was found unconscious in a filled bathtub at her Georgia home. She died six months later of lobar pneumonia. The documentary claims that both Whitney and Bobbi Kristina suffered from addiction.
“The two-hour documentary presents an in-depth look at the parallel lives of renowned singer Whitney Houston and her daughter Bobbi Kristina,” a press release for the film claimed. “Both faced similar struggles — living in the shadow of their famous mothers, criticized for their love choices and often used for their fame and fortune…and both turned to drugs and alcohol for relief from the pressures of being in the spotlight, before prematurely leaving the Earth in the same tragic way.”
It continues: “In an emotional and candid look at the ups and downs of their personal stories, and a celebration of their lives, ‘Whitney Houston & Bobbi Kristina’ offers intimate conversations with the friends and family that were closest to them.”
Whitney Houston & Bobbi Kristina: Didn’t We Almost Have It All premieres on Lifetime Saturday, Feb. 6, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
