I woke up this morning to my publicist calling me saying that there were reports that Bobbi Kristina walked off the set of "For Better Or Worse". NOT TRUE AT ALL PEOPLE!!! There is no way that she could have walked off the set because we have finshed taping the season.
After Whitney's funeral, Krissi and I spent a long time talking about her goals and dreams. She said she wanted to act. That’s when I decided to write her into "For Better Or Worse". I thought that there would be no better way for me to help her move through the grieving than by giving her something to focus on. The one thing that I learned after my mother's death is that you have to keep busy and you have to be around people who you can trust, so that when you do grieve you can do it in the safety and privacy of people that care.
Were there tough days for her? Yes of course. Not because of the actng or any job-related issues but because of the fact that she had just lost her mother. And being someone who knows about losing their mother, I know grief comes in different ways and you never know when it's going to hit you or how it's going to hit you, for that matter. Some days you're smiling and happy and some days you’re so broken that you can't stop crying. So yes she was grieving, but grief aside, she managed to finish her obligation and did a great job at the same time.
So please... PLEASE LEAVE THIS BABY ALONE!!!! AND SHE IS A BABY!!! Please stop the lies and give this child some room to breathe and grieve.

    Tyler, First let me say that I was truly sorry that we lost our beloved Whitney and I can't imagine what her daughter is going thru. Second, I've never heard the story before, but in all truthfulness, if Bobbi Kristina is going to pursue acting (or singing) then she's going to have to develop a thicker skin and allow comments like these to roll off her back. Maybe it's too early for her to delve into a career. After all, she's still young...there's no rush. If she still needs time to grieve for her mother, she should do that because only she will know when she's truly ready. Part of being a celebrity is having to deal with the fickleness of fans, isn't it? One minute they love you, the next minute they hate you. Look at everything her mother went thru. If something as minor as a rumor that she left filming is upsetting to her, then maybe she doesn't need to pursue acting. I wish the best for her in whatever she chooses for her life.

    I have said from the start that they need to leave her alone. It is sad that she lost her mom and now people just want let her be. I lost my mom around the same age as Bobbi and still the pain hurts as if I lost her yesterday and it has been over 20 years. My hearts breaks for her every time I turn on the TV or radio and everyone is talking negative about her. Enough is enough people, let her be. Tyler I knew if it was going to be said, it would come from you and you just don't know how much I appreciate seeing this. Please let her know to keep her head up and ignore all the stupidity in this world that comes out of some people mouth. God bless you and love all you are doing........Ms Love

    Thank you Tyler for posting this message for the "peace snatchers" that exist in this "troubled" world. God bless you with strength, grace, peace, and love to continue doing what you have been purposed to do. I pray for Krissi to continue pursing her passion for acting. She has a mighty angel in heaven watching over her.

    I agree with you Tyler, the young girl needs a chance to grieve and breathe. I have lost my mother for seven years and they are days I just cry, cry.

  • Aileen London Washington, DC

    Amen!!!!! They will reap what they sow! Keep her close. Losing Whitney Houston still hurts and I'm just a fan!

    I totally agree with Tyler. When I lost my grandmother (the ultimate caretaker in my life), I thought it was the end for me. It didn't help to hear all of the negativity that surrounded her name and my ability to make sound decision in the process of grieving over her loss. Work didn't cure the pain. But it helped me stay in focus on what was ahead for me...life. That was something I knew not how to embrace until the people who really stood by me came forth to pull me out of the darkness. She is just a baby in every sense of the word. I still haven't gotten over Whitney's death so you can only imagine what it must be like for her only biological child. My prayers are with her and the family. Thank you, Tyler for standing in the gap for Krissi. I know the family appreciates you for that. I know her future is bright because you cared enough to step in and speak up on her behalf. God bless you!!!!

    Continue to be instrumental in her life! She's going to need people who truly cares about her well being & unfortunately, she may not have many in her circle. Blessings brother, proud of your success, but I'm mostly proud of your humanity! Its what life is about at the end of the day, because God don't care about what our Legacy is, he only cares about what impact we made on the lives of others! I just want to make it to heaven, if I never meet you in this life, hope to meet you there!

    Tyler, I am so grateful that you are one who loves to help people. I know that Krissi (as you all her) will be better off because of you reaching to out and allowing her to focus on something positive. Losing a mother is something no one will understand until it happens to them. Thank you for pulling her in and loving on her like you do so well. Whitney would be so proud of her. God bless you Tyler and continue to be you!

    Hey Tyler: I am glad you sent out that message. To me, the people haven't given her space to move forward. I think that in time, she will find peace. Is no love besides God and a mother's love for a child. Being a mother myself, sometimes I reflect on what my mom told me as a child when I am fussing at one of my children. I turned 40 this Year, and I am so blessed to have my mom still here My prayers go out to Bobbi Kristina. And yes, she is still a precious Baby who is growing into her own. Best of Luck to her.

  • Marcia L. Cookie Jacobs Chicago, Illinois

    I agree with you wholeheartedly Tyler, that people should just mind their business and leave this young lady to grieve as they would want to if the same thing happened to them. I still have a hard time believing that Whitney is gone from us and I still get tearyeyed when I hear certain songs and watch her movies. I am so happy that you have given Bobbi Kristina a break into acting, I pray that she is as successful, as her mom was. You have given so much of yourself to others and haven't failed yet, I am glad that God is using you in such a positive way. I wish her nothing but the best and you as well. You are always in my prayers, Thank you for being you!
