It seems beloved talk show veteran Oprah Winfrey has procured an exclusive interview with 18-year-old teen Bobbi Kristina – the daughter of the late Whitney Houston and her ex-husband Bobby Brown.
According the The Hollywood Reporter, the interview will be featured on Oprah’s Next Chapter airing Sunday (March 11).
In addition to what should be riveting and revealing interview with the troubled teen, Oprah – who was among the many celebs to attend Whitney’s emotional funeral – will also talk to the singer’s sister-in-law and manager Patricia Houston and brother Gary Houston.
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, a release obtained from the network reads that “Bobbi Kristina shares personal memories of her mom and how she would like the iconic superstar to be remembered.”
Before the interview at 7 p.m., the Oprah Winfrey Network will re-air its special – Remembering Whitney: The Oprah Interview – which features the singer’s 2009 interview on The Oprah Winfrey Show and Oprah’s own personal memories of the star.
It was during that revealing 2009 interview that Whitney referred to her ex-husband as her “drug.”
“He (Brown) was my drug,” Whitney claims. “I didn’t do anything without him.”
The legendary icon – who admitted that she and Bobby dabbled in cocaine and marijuana use during their marriage – continues to describe her attraction to Bobby’s “sweet, gentle tenderness” and sense of control in their relationship.
“At home, he was very much the father, he was very much the man,” Whitney reveals.
“He was very much in control. I liked that,” she adds. “When he said something, I listened. I was very interested in having someone have that kind of control over me. It was refreshing.”
Despite her two-time hospital admission due to emotional breakdown and alleged abuse of alcohol, Bobbi Kristina is doing “much better,” according to her father.
My daughter Bobbi Kristina is doing much better. We continue to provide love and support to Bobbi Kristina. She is dealing with the tragedy of her mother death and would prefer to do it outside of the public eye. I ask again that our privacy be respected.”
