Oprah Interview With Whitney Houston's Daughter To Air Sunday
Talk show host Oprah Winfrey has landed an exclusive interview with Bobbi Kristina Brown, 18, the daughter of late pop star Whitney Houston and ex-husband Bobby Brown, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The interview will be featured on Sunday's episode of Oprah's Next Chapter on the OWN network, following a re-airing of the highly rated special Remembering Whitney: The Oprah Interview.
Winfrey famously interviewed Houston in 2009, around the time that the singer's multi-platinum album I Look To You was released. By that time, Houston had already separated from Brown, and she talked candidly about her tumultuous marriage. "He (Brown) was my drug. I didn't do anything without him," Houston told Winfrey, explaining that she loved her ex-husband. "At home, he was very much the father, he was very much the man…. I was very interested in having someone have that kind of control over me. It was refreshing."
Watching from the front row of the audience of that interview was Bobbi Kristina, who at one point told Winfrey that she wanted to follow in her mother's footsteps and become a famous singer.
Sunday's interview, which will also feature Whitney's brother and sister-in-law, Patricia Houston and brother Gary Houston, has been billed as a more personal look at the superstar's final days. "Bobbi Kristina shares personal memories of her mom and how she would like the iconic superstar to be remembered," an OWN network rep said in a statement.
