Whitney Houston

It was recently announced that "The Voice," Whitney Houston, is set to be immortalized on screen in the form of a Lifetime movie. Former America's Next Top Model contestant YaYa Alafia has been cast to portray the music icon. Houston's estate — including her daughter — is upset about the film, which is set to be directed by Oscar nominee Angela Bassett.
