“Extra’s” Tanika Ray sat down with Vivica A. Fox at Universal Studios Hollywood to talk about her new TV movie, “Bobbi Kristina.”

The story takes an honest look at one of the most talked about stories in recent years… the life and death of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s only daughter, Bobbi Kristina.

Vivica plays Whitney’s sister-in-law Pat Houston, who was also the executor of her estate. “She basically became the surrogate mother for Bobbi Kristina,” Vivica explained.

Joy Rovaris plays Bobbi, who passed away in 2015 after being found unconscious in a bathtub. Demetria McKinney plays the late legend Whitney. Vivica said, “When you see Demitria play Whitney Houston it will give you chills.”

Some of Bobbi’s family members have objected to the film. “Bobby's having his objections about the film being made, but we stand behind the film 100 percent. And the only thing we ask of Bobby and the family is to give the film a chance.”

She added, “I want our fans to truly know this… we did this with absolute love and respect for the memory and legacy of Whitney Houston and the memory of Bobbi Kristina.”

Watch “Bobbi Kristina” at 7 p.m. on Oct. 7 on TV One.
