'Top Model' Yaya DaCosta Alafia Cast As Whitney Houston in Angela Bassett-Directed Lifetime Biopic


Ever since we read the news that an Angela Bassett-directed Whitney Houston biopic was in the works for Lifetime, we’ve been racking our brains with who we think would make a great Whitney.

The role of Whitney Houston has been given to America’s Next Top Model alum, Yaya Alafia (formerly Yaya DaCosta before marrying husband Joshua Alafia in 2012).

If you recall, Yaya recently hit the big screen in Lee Daniels’ The Butler.

The movie, tentatively titled Whitney Houston, will chronicle the sensational relationship between Whitney and Bobby Brown as they both rose to fame.

The more we think about it, the more we think Yaya has the potential to do Whitney justice. The question is, do we think Whitney’s family will approve? Probably not.
