Oprah Winfrey Books First Interview With Whitney Houston’s Daughter Bobbi Kristina


Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only begotten child of the late pop icon Whitney Houston, has been out of sight in the weeks since her mother’s funeral took place in Newark, NJ last month but today we learn that she will be making her reemergence into the public eye on March 11 when she sits down to be interviewed by Oprah Winfrey on Oprah’s Next Chapter. Oprah managed to score the first interview with Bobbi Kris since her mother’s death, a feat that will likely benefit Oprah’s struggling OWN network greatly. Click below for all the known deets about this upcoming first interview with Whitney’s daughter.

Oprah Winfrey still has it. She has snagged an exclusive interview with the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, for Oprah’s Next Chapter airing Sunday, March 11 at 9 p.m. In addition to Bobbi Kristina, Winfrey will speak to Houston’s sister-in-law and manager Patricia Houston, and brother Gary Houston. According to a release from the network, “Bobbi Kristina shares personal memories of her mom and how she would like the iconic superstar to be remembered. The family also addresses the rumors and speculation surrounding Houston’s death.” Before the interview at 7 p.m., OWN will re-air its special, Remembering Whitney: The Oprah Interview, which features the singer’s 2009 interview on The Oprah Winfrey Show and Winfrey’s own personal memories of the star.

Wow, this is a great get for Oprah and the OWN network. I know there is GREAT interest to hear from Bobbi Kristina … not only for the first time since her mother’s death but, really, for the first time ever. I don’t recall that Bobbi Kris has ever been interviewed on TV before (not by herself) … but I could be wrong. I can’t even imagine the pain that poor Bobbi Kris is still going thru with the loss of her mother. I really hope this interview with Oprah will help with her healing process. I’m not kidding, I’m really interested in watching this interview. Do you think YOU will tune in to watch as well?


  • While I don’t think she was ever interviewed by herself before she was on with Oprah and Whitney during the second day of the two day season premiere episode of Oprah’s final season. At the time she did say that she wanted to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a singer to which Oprah was optimistically cautious. This is really a good draw for Oprah’s OWN network and I’m looking forward to seeing what happens.

    I find it kinda creepy that Oprah is doing an interview with Bobbi so soon after her mother’s death. It makes me think that she was plotting at the funeral how an interview with her would push up her OWN ratings. Even if I had the OWN channel, I don’t think I would watch.

      I agree! I think it’s a bit too soon, it’s barely a month since her mother’s death. Give Bobbi Kristina some time, Oprah! Geez. But I won’t lie, I’ll watch it.

      I don’t know, I think this is the way of the media, and also the famous (or infamous). All of the media was going to be on the hunt for this interview. It might as well be Oprah, who I actually like.

      You’d still think she’d have more respect for the girl and Whitney’s family. Heck, if it meant paying up BIG time, at least delay the interview by a month or so. Let them grieve in peace for a while.

      I mean it wouldn’t have been 2 months and for a girl so young to lose her mother in such a way, even more devastating and with the added press attention aimed at her and going to hospital that night herself, it’s a lot of pressure and attention that can surely affect someone so vulnerable.

      I think this is wrong and its just my opinion – but I thought Oprah was much classier and more respectful than that.

      The point I’m trying to make (and failing) is I am somewhat certain this family was shopping themselves around for an interview . I’m pretty certain the family could have said, “Sure, Oprah, we’ll talk to you in a couple of months, and no one else until then”, but they did not do that. This is a family that arguably has sought out attention since the death of Whitney. This is not a one sided issue with Oprah in the corner of evil.
