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.

    I lost my mother almost 20 years ago and still have days when I break down and can't stop crying because I miss her physical presence so much. So I say "AMEN" to your post! And bless you for giving this young lady a chance to grow and live.

    You are so right , T P , people need to leave Bobbi Kristina , alone give her breathing room and time to grieve her Mom . Although when you lose your Mom , it's devastating and it will hurt for years to come , but with God all things are possible and you will heal and learn to deal with the hurt & sorrow. God Bless you always for being there for so many that are hurting . Love you

    Thank you Tyler for sharing that message with us about Bobbi Kristina. It is so sad that people and the media won't leave the girl alone. I feel the same as you, leave the girl alone and let her greive in peace. It's good that she has someone like you by her side. Keep doing what you're doing and god will continue to bless you!!!

    It's easy for people to focus on the negative. It's unfortunate but true. I'm not a TP fan, not of the films but I do respect all that you have accomplished. I used to want to write for TPStudios but before I left Atlanta I found it utterly impossible to get in the door. Such is the case for anything in the industry. So I write this note because my first sentence above is too true and I refuse to do the same. I recognize and appreciate the fact that you are making valiant efforts to help this child. Despite the fact that people want to say you're just trying to capitalize on the moment. People can always find some negative in everything we do, but it only matters if you let it. I once almost wrote a letter to Whitney years ago. I was sick of the tabloid reports and just wanted her to know someone was rooting for her. More importantly I wanted to tell write to her from the POV of a child who had watched my own mother deal with abuse. I wanted to tell her that she is and will always be her daughter's hero and for that reason it was so worth believing that she could beat this disease. I wanted her to know that what she searched for in the world, she already had... the unconditional love that would always be there for her in her daughter. I never sent that letter and since her death, oh how I've wished I had. I don't know that she would have ever read it but I wish I had tried. So my heart goes out to Bobbi Kris because I know what it's like to watch over a parent and pray that someday she would be able to find strength in just how much you love them. I'm sending this letter to you today in place of the note I didn't send then. It's important to do what we can, when we can and I appreciate that you are doing it... regardless of what anyone has to say about it.

    Tyler, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This young lady has been through enough and doesn't need anybody ragging on her. I'm actually very proud of Bobbi Kristina. I think Whitney did an excellent job with her. I'm praying for her continued success in ALL of her endeavors. When I heard that she would be in one of your shows, I felt that she would be protected. Thank you for being there for her.
