The Whitney Houston Story set the start filming soon for Lifetime TV is starring Yaya DeCosta as Whitney Houston and guess who is playing Bobby Brown …. We can’t believe it either Arlen Escarpeta. We like the fact that Yaya is casted as Whitney but this Arlen as Bobby is not cool. Where is his gap and he doesn’t even resemble him in no way shape or form. In our honest opinion he’s cuter than Bobby. What do you all think?
