Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina, is engaged to her adopted brother?!

Is this a publicity stunt for her new reality show?

This year has been full of ups and downs for 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown. In February, she lost her mother, Whitney Houston, tragically and suddenly. In the months since, she's been in the tabloids for supposedly carrying on a relationship with Nick Gordon, who is essentially her adopted brother. Now, word is that Bobbi Kristina and Nick are not only together -- they're engaged!?

This is just too much! Bobbi Kristina supposedly breaks the news about her engagement in a special "sneak peak" of the new Lifetime reality show The Houstons: On Our Own. One can only hope that this is some sort of publicity stunt.OK, let's hash this out, shall we? Bobbi Kristina Brown and Nick Gordon essentially grew up together. They have a long history, and both loved Whitney Houston. Both have no doubt mourned her loss deeply this year. But are they even dating? Rumors that these two are engaged have circulated for weeks now, but until today, they were just that: rumors.

In a promo clip for the new reality show The Houstons: On Our Own, Bobbi Kristina Brown is seen wearing a large sapphire ring. She then nervously laughs as she announces, "We're engaged" to the family (who doesn't seem thrilled). You can see the entire teaser courtesy of E! Online here.

FYI: A rep for Bobbi Kristina Brown says she and Nick Gordon aren't currently engaged. Does this mean they were at one point?

What do you think? Is this just a way to promote ratings for The Houstons: On Our Own (which premieres on October 24, 2012, on Lifetime), or is Bobbi Kristina Brown really engaged to Nick Gordon? Personally, I think it's nothing more than a publicity stunt designed to generate tons of buzz for the show. And guess what? It's working!
