Cissy Houston rejects Rihanna
If it’s up to Cissy Houston, Rihanna will not be playing Whitney Houston in a biopic.
When Whitney’s mom caught wind of news that RiRi wanted to play the diva, a source told the National Enquirer that Cissy said, "Over my dead body!"
She doesn’t feel Rihanna, given her reputation, would be a good choice for the role. “Cissy believes Rihanna celebrates everything she hated about Whitney’s life—the drugging, the boxing, the abusive relationship," the insider said.
“Cissy does not think Whitney should be represented by someone like Rihanna,” the source added. “In spite of what anyone thought about Whitney, she sees her as a God-fearing Christian who loved the Lord.”
And Cissy expects that the family will have some involvement in developing a biopic, should one ever go into production. "IF there is a movie made about Whitney, [Cissy] would insist on approving the actress,” the tipster said. “And Rihanna certainly would NOT be on the list.”

And it looks like her resolve to go mute has spread to another part of her online presence, as her official fansite, NickiDaily.com, now has a "closed" sign on the homepage.

Somaya Reece looks like a new woman! The "Love & Hip Hop" star has revealed her new frame after getting breast reduction surgery.

Even with all of that, though, Somaya seems pretty happy with the results, based on the pics she posted below.
