"The Houstons: On Our Own" is as wrong as can be

When I first heard that Whitney Houston's family was doing a reality show, I  shook my head in dismay, jumping to conclusions without seeing a single shot.

But now that I've seen an episode of "The Houstons: On Our Own" (9 tonight, Lifetime), I feel better. I may be judgmental, but I'm also vindicated. This is an awful, awful show, one that's painful to watch and impossible to justify.

The show features Pat Houston, Whitney's sister-in-law and manager; Gary Houston, her older brother; Pat and Gary's daughter Rayah; Cissy Houston, Whitney's mom, and most tragically Bobbi Kristina, Whitney and Bobby Brown's daughter. Nick Gordon, a young man Whitney took in and to whom we learn Bobbi Kristina is now engaged, is also featured.
