Pat Houston, Whitney Houston's sister-in-law, recently wrote an open letter about the recent portrayal of the late singer on the small screen.
While the Lifetime Network premiere of the film "Whitney" attracted the most viewers ever in a Lifetime telecast, the late singer's family was far from happy with the Angela Bassett-directed movie. In an open letter posted on www. whitneyhouston.com, Pat questioned Bassett's decision to direct a film that premiered so close to Whitney's untimely death that took place Feb. 11, 2012.
In the open letter, Pat describes having to tell her daughter about the movie that may not portray the late singer in a light that the family desires to see. She also spoke about the emotional turmoil that the film took on the Houston family. more >>

Ever since "Constantine" failed to receive a 22-episode order for its first season on NBC, many have speculated that the show's future looks shaky. Moreover, the show failed to turn in impressive numbers in the ratings game. Last Friday's winter break return of "Constantine" saw the series fall to 3.1 million viewers and a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49 in its new earlier 8pm timeslot, which takes it down to 20 percent from the show's last episode in December.
Speaking on the general state of NBC from the TCA tour, entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt and NBC president Jennifer Salke both took on the question of "Constantine."
"Still talking about [whether to renew the show]," Salke said. "We wish the show had done better live. It has a big viewership after [live airings] in all kinds of ways, and it has a younger audience. The live number is challenging. It hasn't kind of come out of 'Grimm' the way we wanted it to. We love the show. I think it's fair to say that we're really still talking about it." more >>
