Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only begotten child of the late Whitney Houston, was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey on Oprah’s Next Chapter last night exactly one month to the day that Whitney tragically died here in LA. Oprah’s interview with Bobbi Kris was a powerful one and, as I understand it, was BK’s first solo interview ever with anyone. Throughout the course of the interview, Bobbi Kristina revealed that she has found comfort in being able to communicate with her late mother “in spirit”. Many people deal with grief in varying ways, for Bobbi Kris, her coping mechanism allows her to keep contact with her late mother.

The night after Whitney Houston died, her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown could not bring herself to sleep in her mother’s Atlanta mansion. That all changed the next morning. “I woke up and I heard her say, ‘All right, come home now,’ ” Brown told Oprah Winfrey in a TV special Sunday night. “And when I came back home, I felt humble, I felt okay.” The singer’s only child, 19, says she’s now comforted by the spirit of her mother, who died last month at age 48. “I can hear her voice in spirit talking to me, ‘Keep talking to me. I got you,’ ” says Brown. “She’s always with me. I can always feel her. I can always feel her with me. She always asked me,’Do you need me?’ And I caught myself, out of nowhere, I didn’t even know I said it, I said, ‘I’ll always need you.’ ” Brown – Houston’s child with her ex-husband Bobby Brown – says she spent her mother’s last day alive in her embrace. “It was so early in the morning. I went to go get her and I said, ‘Come lay with me,’ ” she says. “She stayed with me all night and all day. She was just rubbing my head and holding me. I just slept in her arms.” Houston, whose cause of death has not yet been officially determined, was found unresponsive in water in a bathtub in her suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Feb. 11 and later pronounced dead. “I have to carry on the legacy,” says Bobbi Kristina. “We’re going to do the singing thing. Some acting, some dancing.”
It is nice to learn that Bobbi Kristina was able to spend one last morning with her mother before her untimely death … that part of her interview just really touched me. The photos and video of Bobbi Kris as a child with her mother, just … wow. I can’t say that I disbelieve her claim that she is able to communicate with her mother “in spirit” … I can only say that I hope BK is able to heal fully from her mother’s death. I also commend her for wanting to carry on her mother’s legacy and I wish her all the luck in the world. Her mother left behind some big shoes to fill. I’d, personally, recommend that Bobbi Kristina honor her mother in a way that is wholly her own (rather than trying to carry on her legacy). Vowing to pick up where her mother left off is a very daunting task. But, again, BK has got to do what she has go to do. I truly wish her the best. Did any of y’all watch last night’s interview?
