Despite the passing of Whitney Houston, her family has remained in the spotlight mainly due to ongoing family drama. In the teaser for the family's upcoming Lifetime reality series, "The Houstons: On Our Own," Whitney's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown confirmed that she and her boyfriend 22-year-old Nick Gordon — who is also her adopted brother — have taken their relationship to the next level. "We're engaged," the 19-year-old told her seemingly bothered family in the clip.

"Engagement — this is unacceptable," replied Bobbi Kristina's aunt Pat Houston. Speculation had arisen about Bobbi Kristina and Nick Gordon's engagement several months ago, when many noticed a prominent blue ring on the young woman's hand. However, sources close to the couple had continuously denied the allegation. Some are now claiming that Bobbi Kristina's confirmation might have been a stunt used to increase ratings and viewership for the upcoming reality show, which premieres on Oct. 24.
