Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, will open up to talk show host Oprah Winfrey today, the first interview she has given since her mother died on Feb. 11. Oprah's OWN will air the much-anticipated episode of Oprah's Next Chapter at 9 p.m. EST.
During the interview, the talk show host will have a one-on-one with Houston's brother, Gary, her sister-in-law Patricia, and Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina. Bobbi Kristina is the only child Houston had from her marriage to singer Bobby Brown.
Bobbi Kristina Needs Some Time
People.com reported that some Houston family members were concerned about the timing of the interview with the 19 year old.
There is still no resolution and there has been nothing concrete on the cause of [Whitney's] death, and they were hoping for that, People.com reported being told by a Houston family friend. There were members of the family who weren't keen on [the interview] going down at this time.
Moreover, there were people who wanted Bobbi Kristina to just stay out of the limelight for a while.
This is a little girl who just needs some time, the friend said.
Bobbi Kristina Trusts Oprah
Bobbi Kristina has reportedly said that she is doing the interview with Oprah because the talk show host is a close family friend.
TMZ reported that Bobbi Kristina is telling friends that Oprah was loyal to my mom, and never did my mother wrong, or made her look bad. She always looked out for my mom.
