The man who penned Diary of a Mad Black Woman could likely now write a sequel: Website Posting of a Seething Producer.

Tyler Perry took to the Internet yesterday to express outrage over a report that claimed Bobbi Kristina Brown stormed off the set of Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse, the entertainment mogul's latest TBS sitcom.

"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!!!" Perry wrote. "There is no way that she could have walked off the set because we have finished taping the season."

Perry was referring to a Radar Online story that claimed Whitney Houston's only child "couldn't handle doing the show right now" because she was still mourning her mother.

That is simply a lie, Perry wrote, acknowledging there were "tough" times given the very tough circumstances, but "grief aside, she managed to finish her obligation and did a great job at the same time."

He concluded: "PLEASE LEAVE THIS BABY ALONE!!!! AND SHE IS A BABY!!! Please stop the lies and give this child some room to breathe and grieve. IF IT WAS YOUR CHILD WOULND'T YOU WANT THAT?"

TV viewers will see Bobbi Kristina when For Better Or Worse debuts in July, while she will also be featured on a Lifetime reality show that centering around her family.

Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, appeared briefly on stage at last night's Billboard Music Awards after a tribute to her late mother.

Bobbi Kristina, in her first major public appearance since her mother died, called herself "blessed to have been in such an incredible woman's life."

She accepted the Millennium Award after performances by John Legend and Jordan Sparks. Here's Sparks' rendition of "I Will Always Love You" ...

Sparks, the one-time American Idol winner, more than held her own in the presence of greatness. Whitney's legacy will never be forgotten.

The camera cut to a crying Bobbi Kristina multiple times during the moving effort by Jordin, which moved much of the audience to near-tears.

Bobbi Kristina Brown was then joined on stage by Whitney's sister-in-law and manager, Pat Houston, who spoke briefly to the crowd as well.

At first glance, it seems disturbingly exploitive: Lifetime will soon air a reality show based around the family of Whitney Houston.

But sources tell TMZ the motivation behind this program isn't merely to make money off the singer's tragic death; for Cissy Houston, it's to help boost the career of her granddaughter, 18-year old Bobbi Kristina.

While believing the series will push along the family's "healing process," Cissy is mostly concerned about Bobbi, insiders say, and hopes this will be a showcase for her talents.

Look for the Houston family docu-series to feature a far more serious tone than similar programs such as Keeping Up with the Kardashians and for Whitney's sister, Patricia, to serve as the lead.

Will you tune in?

The family of Whitney Houston is on its way to Lifetime.

The network just released a press release that promotes The Houston Family Chronicles (working title), a docu-series that will follow around the lives of Pat Houston (pictured); Whitney’s sister-in-law and manager; Pat’s daughter, Rayah; Whitney’s brother Gary; daughter Bobbi Kristina and mother Cissy Houston.

Says Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President, Programming, of Lifetime Networks:

“The tragic loss of Whitney Houston left a void in the hearts of people all over the world, but certainly none more so than her beloved family. In this series, the multi-generations of the Houston family will bravely reveal their lives as they bond together to heal, love, and grow.”

Pat Houston, meanwhile, says she's been in discussion with the network for awhile, though the Whitney passing "certainly affects the direction of the show" and adds: "However, it is my hope that others will be enlightened as they watch our family heal and move forward.”

Will you tune in for this series?

4/20. It's a great day to be high ... on life here at THG.

While the origins of 420 remain hotly debated, but no matter where the term came from, peeps associate it with smoking massive amounts of the marijuana!

So be it then. The 20th day of April has become a de facto holiday, and for good reason. What more of a justification do you need to celebrate than that?

With that in mind, The Hollywood Gossip salutes some famous individuals who have been known to puff the herb from time to time. Some even inhale ...

Soulja Boy, Weed

Soulja Boy. Soulja Boy's rep explains the above image, Tweeted this week, as being taken inside of a California marijuana dispensary earlier this month.

Soulja allegedly just wanted a pic and didn't try to buy any of it ... but the guy was also arrested recently with major amounts of weed, guns and cash.

Bobbi Kristina Brown. The worst thing about the Bobbi Kristina Brown bong video that recently surfaced? Few people were actually surprised by it.

After all, if anyone knows how to clear a three-foot piece with relative ease ... okay that was still pretty surprising. Girl needs to get some help ASAP.

Bill Clinton. As President of the United States, William Jefferson Clinton presided over the largest peacetime economic expansion in American history.

But boy, was he a terrible liar. The Lewinsky debacle was technically worse (with perjury charges and all), but "I didn't inhale" was his most absurd moment.

Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, is seen hitting the bong HARD in a 2011 video posted by the National Enquirer on its new Enquirer Plus site.

The oft-troubled 19-year-old was partying with friends who attend college in Statesboro, Ga., in March of last year, when the bong video was taken.

The Enquirer video shows Bobbi Kristina smoking marijuana out a three-foot-tall bong, inhaling the smoke so deeply that she nearly collapses coughing.

In the video, Bobbi Kristina says, “Give me the lighter,” and then lights the bong, takes a huge hit, coughs and goes back for more ... like a boss.

Bobbi Kristina was staying with friends at the school and brought along a big bag of pot for the party,” a source at the party said of that epic night.

“When I left at 6 a.m. the next day, she was still partying hard. Between tokes, Bobbi was drinking shots of Grey Goose and Skyy Blue vodka."

“She’s obviously a seasoned partier.  With the amount of pot and alcohol she was using, I would've passed out, but she was going strong.”

When Bobby Brown was arrested this week on suspicion of DUI, few people were surprised. It wasn't exactly the singer's first arrest.

Among those who saw another run in with the law coming for this New Edition members? Cissy Houston, the mother of Whitney who has been telling everyone in her circle that Bobby is a bad influence on 19-year old granddaughter Bobbi Kristina.

Sources tell TMZ Cissy feels "vindicated" by the arrest and hopes the incident helps her case: that Brown should "keep his distance" from his child, who has been going through a great deal of turmoil since her mom's passing last month.

Referring to her dad, one insider says: "This is the last person she needs to be around."

It doesn't sound like Bobbi will need much convincing. Rumors state that the teenager is hoping to change her last name in the near future in order to separate herself as much as possible from her law-breaking parent.

Bobbi Kristina Brown is not engaged to Nick Gordon, the 22-year old taken in by Whitney Houston many years ago and raised as one of her own.

At least not according to Brown's rep.

Talk of an engagement heated up last week after Bobbi was seen out and about with a massive diamond ring on her finger, but this source tells E! News there's nothing more to that development than an apparent tribute to her late parent.

She's "simply wearing her mother's ring," the Bobbi Kristina insider says.

Bobbi, meanwhile, hasn't talked publicly since sitting down last week with Oprah Winfrey, but she has been communicating via Twitter, retweeting a number of supportive messages, such as:

"@REALbkBrown don't justify to these people. Looks like Whitney was mother and trusted you to protect her greatest treasure BKBro."

Bobbi Kristina Brown and Nick Gordon are heating up their relationship, and they don't care what anyone thinks about it.

The 19-year old daughter of Whitney Houston went public this week with the fact that she's dating Gordon, a 22-year old who her mother took in many years ago and raised as her own child.

Since then, the pair has been spotted in public kissing and holding hands, with a source telling Us Weekly Bobbi and Nick are residing in a house in Atlanta - and are engaged!

"The situation is beyond sad," this insider says of Brown and Gordon. "Whitney never formally adopted Nick, but he lived with her and Bobbi Kristina from the age of twelve and they were raised like brother and sister. Nick came from a really bad background."

This mole adds that Bobbi is open about the engagement, showing off a huge diamond ring to friends and saying it formally belonged to her mother.

If she and Nick truly do go through with a marriage, it will be met with opposition from family members. Cissy Houston reportedly came out this week and labeled the relationship "incestuous."

Drama surrounding Whitney Houston's family continues to persist, long after this singer has passed away.

The latest controversy surrounds daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, who announced this week that she's dating Nick Gordon, a young man taken in by her mother many years ago and raised as her stepson.

Bobbi and Nick went public with their status on Twitter, with Gordon emphasizing there's no blood relation between the two and telling the "haters" they "don't have a brain" if they find anything wrong with the scenario.

Turns out, according to TMZ sources, Gordon was challenging Whitney's mom, Cissy, who a friend claims takes major exception to her granddaughter cozying up to her quasi sibling. She has reportedly labeled the relationship "incestuous" and believes Nick is taking advantage of a vulnerable Bobbi.

Moreover, this mole says Cissy is willing to take an extreme step in order to split the couple up: she's asking Whitney Houston's Estate to legally evict Gordon from the premises.

What do you think of Bobbi and Nick's relationship?
