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.

    It really is ashame that we live in a world where people use other peoples hardships as a way to entertain or make money, without any empathy at all, Bobbi is an only child and yes still a baby let's pray for her healing and her peace.

    Thank you so much for posting this...I get tired of people making up their own stories...most of this stuff in the media are lies....I'm glad she has someone like you she can trust and have her best interest at heart..I can relate to everything you said about loosing a mother...it's been 12 years and it still hurts!!! Thank you for all your post I feel like I'm talking right with you!!

    I totally agree with you. Leave her alone. I grew up listening to Whitney Houston, she was more than just a singer to me. I loved her. She touched us all in song but with her personality. I cried so much when she passed. It was like a member of my family. Her music is getting people through difficulties such as cancer. Let Bobbi Kristina grieve in peace and then she will come out shining, just as her Mom would want her too. Thanks to the very "Good Deeds" of someone such as yourself who recognises what she needs at this time, along with prayer.

    I don't know how it feels to lose a mother but I do know how it feels to lose someone you love and like you said give her time to grieve I am glad she has someone like you on her side because you been in her shoes and know what she is going through. I will definitely keep her in my prayers and know that God will help her through these rough times. Like I said early I may not have lost my mother but I did lose my twin brother in 1989 and I still go through those days when I can smile and still have the days that I cry because I miss him so much because we was so close he was not just my brother but my best friend. I hope she keeps the faith and know that God would not put more on us than we can bare. Keep the faith and my prayers are with you and her Donna

    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!!!
