If you’ve seen the Tina Turner biopic you know Bassett knows what she’s doing. When asked what viewers should take away from ‘Whitney’ when it airs January 17, 2015:
“I just want them to go on the journey between Whitney and Bobby. I considered it a love story…I guess they had great business between them. They were there to love and care for one another, and it was quite a journey,” she said.
