One of the world's leading modeling magazines has created quite a buzz by suggesting Angela Bassett selected the wrong model to play Whitney Houston in the upcoming Lifetime biopic.

"Tygeria Drayton would be the perfect fit for the Whitney Houston role," says a representative for RHK Magazine. "Yaya DaCosta obviously has the acting resume and is undoubtedly a beautiful model, but Tygeria perfectly exemplifies the characteristics of a young Whitney: passionate about her craft, instant connection with her fans, and enchanting beauty. With almost half a million fans on Facebook, this would have been an excellent opportunity to introduce a fresh, new face to the big screen."

The Lifetime biopic about Whitney Houston's life will be released in 2015 and will be Angela Bassett's directorial debut.

Tygeria, shown in the photo to the left, is a gorgeous model and radio personality from Las Vegas who has graced the cover of some of the world's hottest magazines, including RHK Magazine, Dyme Life Magazine, Global Modeling, Bikini Mag, Hu$tleAire Magazine, WISH Magazine, and many others.
