No to Michelle even though she's crackhead skinny. I don't mind Yaya but that's not who I expected.

Yes, gawd needs to work on her..  Yaya seemed like a diva on ANTM so she could prob pull it off.

I guess. She's not a bad actress, and this is a lifetime movie so you don't have yo have excellent acting chops lol

The choices were Yaya and Michelle? hell theyre both like 'M' list celebrities. It would be a stretch to see either one of them pull it off. I guess they chose from the bottom of the M list barrel instead of the next to the bottom. It issss LIFETIME after all lol.

What does celebrity status have to do with anything? I can list a bunch of higher listed actors that are beyond mediocre

I can list plenty as well and all in all I was joking around... per my usual. But since Im being quoted, I'll weigh in seriously- I honestly think they could have done better with the choice of actress and I also think that a larger network should've done Whitney some justice by opting to do her biopic. All in all my comment wasnt that serious, I rarely ever get deep on BHM.

  I'm surprised this isn't a big screen movie. I read that the family is upset about that too. Surely there was enough interest to fund it. 

eta: that her story not being told in a feature film.

I thought Keke Palmer could have played Whitney.

I like Yaya and I wish her good luck with this role. She's gonna have a lot of pressure on her to deliver a good performance.

Too soon for me . Whit derserves a big screen movie  . Clive davis should make that happen . I wonder if they will finally disclose her pregnancy . She plan to tell the world about her unborn child .  EVE reminds me of whit  . I can't listen to her music . Broken Heart

I realized she couldn't act when I watched that TLC biopic.  She was the worst..So, hell no to KeKe.

I'm done with KeKe forever after the TLC story.

Yaya >>> Keke

However, I think Joy Bryant would've done a good job. Not sure she looks like Whit but her presence reminds me of her
