Watch “The Houstons: On Our Own” Episodes 1 & 2

The sudden and unexpected death of R&B icon Whitney Houston left behind a huge void that was not only felt by the world, but also by those who loved her the most: her family.

“The Houstons: On Our Own,” Lifetime’s new 14-episode docuseries (fancy word for reality show) chronicles the everyday lives of Whitney’s immediate family as they deal with her passing, including Bobbi Kristina (Whitney’s troubled 19-year-old daughter with her ex husband Bobby Brown), Gary Houston (Whitney’s brother), Pat Houston (Gary’s wife and Whitney’s manager/best friend), Rayah Houston (Gary and Pat’s daughter — Whitney’s niece) and Cissy Houston (Whitney and Gary’s mother).

In the series premiere, despite Pat’s efforts to involve Bobbi Kristina in more family and career activities, Bobbi Kristina finds that her time is better spent with her fiancé. Pat is concerned with Bobbi Kristina’s choices and feels that she may have bigger, more dangerous problems.

And in the second episode, the Houston family unites for their first Mother’s day without Whitney; and Bobbi Kristina makes an unexpected announcement about her relationship with Nick.

    This is going to be an interesting docuseries to watch. It sounds like
    it’s going to have a lot of things going on. It will be interesting to hear
    about Bobbi Kristina and her relationship with Nick. In addition, I look
    forward to seeing what all the family members are up to and what they have to
    say about Bobbi Kristina’s current life choices. My DISH coworker told me about this show the other day, so I’ll definitely be tuning in. I won’t be home when it airs so I’ll record it on my Hopper. I won’t miss a minute of playing back
    the recordings, because I’ll be able to start watching in my living room and
    then continue watching in my kitchen right where I left off. It’s going to be
    exciting to see an inside glimpse of this family’s life after Whitney.
