Showtime’s new Whitney Houston documentary is not always fun to watch — and that’s coming from its executive producer.

“An accurate portrayal of her life,” says Vinnie Malhotra, “is unfortunately a painful one.”

Premiering Friday at 9 p.m., “Whitney: Can I Be Me” has a darkness that’s mitigated but never vanquished by Houston’s music.

Houston’s albums — with songs like “The Greatest Love Of All,” “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me),” “So Emotional” and “How Will I Know” — sold multimillions. The album from the 1992 film “The Bodyguard,” which includes her rendition of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You,” remains the best-selling soundtrack ever.
