Whitney: Cause of Death
Whitney Houston died from accidental drowning.
When Bobbi Kristina told Oprah Winfrey she planned to carry on her mother Whitney Houston’s legacy, she wasn’t kidding! 

The 19-year-old has been cast in a new TV role, according to a People source. She will reportedly appear as a recurring character on Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse — which is a continuation of his Why Did I Get Married? film franchise.

“I have to carry on the legacy,” Bobbi Kristina told Oprah during her OWN special. “We’re going to do the singing thing. Some acting, some dancing.”

Her big break is also a convenient one — Tyler’s production studio is located in Atlanta, where Bobbi Kristina lives. 

The second season of For Better or Worse is shooting now. It will premiere in July on TBS.

Perry is a dear friend to the Houston family. After Whitney’s death, he provided his own personal jet to fly her back to the funeral service.
