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!!! There is no way that she could have walked off the set because we have finshed taping the season.
After Whitney's funeral, Krissi and I spent a long time talking about her goals and dreams. She said she wanted to act. That’s when I decided to write her into "For Better Or Worse". I thought that there would be no better way for me to help her move through the grieving than by giving her something to focus on. The one thing that I learned after my mother's death is that you have to keep busy and you have to be around people who you can trust, so that when you do grieve you can do it in the safety and privacy of people that care.
Were there tough days for her? Yes of course. Not because of the actng or any job-related issues but because of the fact that she had just lost her mother. And being someone who knows about losing their mother, I know grief comes in different ways and you never know when it's going to hit you or how it's going to hit you, for that matter. Some days you're smiling and happy and some days you’re so broken that you can't stop crying. So yes she was grieving, but grief aside, she managed to finish her obligation and did a great job at the same time.
So please... PLEASE LEAVE THIS BABY ALONE!!!! AND SHE IS A BABY!!! Please stop the lies and give this child some room to breathe and grieve.

    I agree with you wholeheartedly Tyler, that people should just mind their business and leave this young lady to grieve as they would want to if the same thing happened to them. I still have a hard time believing that Whitney is gone from us and I still get tearyeyed when I hear certain songs and watch her movies. I am so happy that you have given Bobbi Kristina a break into acting, I pray that she is as successful, as her mom was. You have given so much of yourself to others and haven't failed yet, I am glad that God is using you in such a positive way. I wish her nothing but the best and you as well. You are always in my prayers, Thank you for being you!

    Hello Tyler, I hope you're doing well. I wanted to comment on your last statement relating to BobbiChristina. My heart truly goes out to this little girl. I really cared a great deal for her mom, Whitney was and still is my musical idol and inspiration. With her giving birth to a child my love is naturally for her because I loved her mother so much. It's sad and unbelievable how mean the media is being towards. BobbiChristina. I really thought for some reason they would give her room to mourn. I guess I should have known better. These are their normal actions, unfortunately. There's one thing I'm re ally glad about and that is the joy of knowing BobbiChristina has someone in her life that truly cares and understands what she's going through, You! Thank You for having a heart that genuinely cares for people. I'll keep BobbiChristina in my prayers:-)

    All I have to say is I agree with you Tyler, it is a shame that we are so quick to forget what it feels like to lose a Mom, Dad, sibling, close relative or friend. Grief is not something you can turn on or off as you please. Bobby Christina belongs to all of us, and we should continue to love her and support her no matter what. This world is full of hippocrites and self servers who lack compassion and empathy for others in need. Where are all of the people who so called loved Whitney and the Houston family when she was alive? Now more than ever, we should be more protective of her child and extend that love to her. Thanks for supporting her, you are truly a blessing! Michele M.

    AMEN to that Tyler!! If people would get a LIFE of their own they wouldn't have time for all of this nasty negativity & messy rhetoric!! We must continue to pray, support and inspire one another so that things can change for the better in this world . . . GOSSIP has no place but in the TRASH!! Keep your head held high Bobbi Kristina!!

    Wow. People or a trip to me. I do agree with you Tyler 100%. Leave her alone and let her be. You have so many hater in this D*** world, and they don't want any body to be up, they just want a person to stay down. But I pray that she keep, keeping her head up to the Lord and prove all of them hater wrong. Bobbi Kristina Keep your head up and tell them all where they can go. My father will begone 5 years this year and i still crys for him that just how much I misses him. When he left this crazy world that we live in, I left with him. but I have to keep strong every day that god wakes me up and say Thank You My Lord For Another Bless day. And for getting me throught these year with out my Father. So with all that said this shall pass, and she will show all them what she is made out of. Thank You Tyler for keeping it REAL.

    A lie hits like lightening while the truth is still traveling. Its something when you are going through things and some people laugh at whats being done or said. But when it happens to them they get hit with it and for some reason cant deal with it like the person that have been through it. People who have a relationship with our father take it and pray. For the one that cant handle it read the bible and not only that but learn the word of the all mighty. I pray that God keep his hand on Bobbi Kristina because the devil is very busy and stay on his job. Be Blessed...

    Mr. Perry I love you. I love that I live in a day and time in history where we have big brothers like you and beautiful sisters like Oprah to stand up for us. That can speak words of sanity and humanity that pierce the foolishness and darkness. Thank you. You know Mark Zuckerburg is wishing right about next week that he had you as his big brother, I know he ain't hurting like us, but I'm just saying!LOL! Love and respect you much Mr. Perry, can't wait to work with you. www.dellamcmillan.com

    Psalm 35:14 gives an example of how a child grieves for their mother: "Distraught as a motherless child, hunched and heavyhearted" (The Message - Version) Krissi & Tyler I lost my mother in 1991. The Word of GOD quoted above is exactly how I felt at the time of her death. Although its been 20 years, I still experience this type of grief from time to time. Thank you Tyler for protecting Krissi. You are right she is Whitney's baby; you are Wille Maxine's baby; and I am Essie's baby. Blessings
