Actress Meagan Good appeared on The Arsenio Hall Show last night. First, Good discussed her role in the hit movie: "Anchorman 2" starring Comedian Will Ferrell. The Talkshow Host/Comedian Arsenio Hall asked Meagan: "What kinda roles do you want to do in the future?" Meagan explained how she wanted to play roles that would require her to either shave her head or gain 30lbs. Then, she said she'd really like to play Whitney Houston because she really "Gets" her. Arsenio Hall asked if Meagan even knew Whitney and she responded that Whitney's God Daughter is her best friend and was in her wedding. Meagan explained that she met Whitney and spent time with her on the set of "Sparkle", Whitney's last project before she passed. Ms. Good contended that she would portray Whitney Houston accurately and in a way she would have wanted to be remembered.
In 2011, Meagan Good played a role in the movie: "Video Girl". This role was a testament of how she can capture a "Good Whitney" and "Bad Whitney". In the movie "Video Girl" Meagan played a good girl gone bad by falling into drugs, alcohol while hiding from her grandmother, and living a life the media claimed Whitney Houston lived behind closed doors. The Actress proclaims that Whitney Houston was very misunderstood and because she "gets" her, she feels that she could play the most accurate depiction of Whitney. Meagan continued her sales pitch to play Whitney stating: "I will tell the truth but with the intention and the heart behind it."
In April, 2011 it was reported by Vibe magazine that Cissy Houston was dead set against Singer Rihanna ever playing her daughter in a bio pic. The magazine reported that Cissy said: "Over My Dead Body" because according to a source close to Cissy: "Rihanna celebrates everything she hated about Whitney’s life — the drugging, the boxing, the abusive relationship.” See Article
