What Did You Think About Oprah’s Interview With Whitney Houston’s Family?


The NY Daily News reports that the former Queen of talk, Oprah Winfrey has landed the first interview with Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.

According to the NY Daily News, the 18-year-old will share her “personal memories” of her mother and how she’d like her to be remembered. Oprah also sat down with Whitney’s most trusted confidants, her brother Gary Houston and sister-in-law, Pat. The interviews took place in Atlanta, where Bobbi Kristina once shared a townhouse with her mother.

Winfrey’s team also said the family addressed the “rumors and speculation” that have surfaced in the wake of Houston’s death on the eve of the Grammy Awards in February.

Houston was found unresponsive in the bathroom of her suite at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Feb. 11, the night before the Grammys.

The special will air on Oprah’s OWN cable network on March 11.

She has been accused of doing drugs,overdosing and shunning her dad. Maybe she wants to set the record straight herself.

      I agree with u plus this might be part of the grieving process for her. I know for me, I hated how no one wanted to talk about the person I lost or just wanted to talk sh!t about the person but not to me. I was afraid I would forgot them and talking about them gave me a sense of peace. It must be hard to lose someone and go thru all this in the media but her mom was famous……..

They were both willing partners. All of this “he spit on her” nonsense is just that..nonsense.
