The NY Daily News reports that struggling talk show titan Oprah has landed the first interview with Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.

According to the NY Daily News, the 18-year-old will share her "personal memories” of her mother and how she’d like her to be remembered. Oprah also sat down with Whitney's most trusted confidants, her brother Gary Houston and sister-in-law, Pat. The interviews took place in Atlanta, where Bobbi Kristina once shared a townhouse with her mother.

Winfrey's team also said the family addressed the “rumors and speculation” that have surfaced in the wake of Houston's death on the eve of the Grammy Awards in February.

Houston was found unresponsive in the bathroom of her suite at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Feb. 11, the night before the Grammys.

The special will air on Oprah's OWN cable network on March 11.

Oprah's crown has been tarnished by poor ratings and traitors who jumped ship from her failing network OWN. In the past, the media seized upon the term "Oprahfication", to describe Oprah's powerful influence on pop culture. But it seems that Oprah has lost her magic touch.

Oprah walked away from her syndicated talk show Oprah, in May 2011 on the advice of a terminally ill boy who told her to end her show's successful run at an even number of years: 25.

Now, the 58-year-old media Guru is trying to save her struggling OWN network by doing more of the face-to-face interviews that made her famous.

  • mexidorean

    Anyone else think it's too soon?

  • http://wineandgummybears.blogspot.com/ gypsyeyes

    Oprah will never struggle even if OWN is doing well in ratings. I don't think that anyone will handle Bobby Kris the way that Oprah will anyway.

  • Ms. Everything

    I really don't like Oprah, it's not like I know her personally but her public image rubs me the wrong way. I know older women who see everything she does or says is gospel truth and it drives me crazy BUT she's the best person for this interview simply because Barbara is shady as hell and likes to throw digs and Diane Sawyer can be the same way. Oprah isn't going to disrespect this family so :thumbsup: to her doing the interview even though I won't watch it

  • capricorn83

    Although OWN may be struggling, trust and believe Oprah's not!!

    On another note, Sandra did you see the shade Rih threw Karruche yesterday??? Hilarious!!!

    Sandra Mae says "Oprah walked away from her syndicated talk show Oprah, in May 2011 on the advice of a terminally ill boy who told her to end her show’s successful run at an even number of years: 25."

    I hate when you use those MTO brand of reporting by picking and choosing which part of the story fits your agenda and leaving out the "meat" because it's better "copy". The TRUTH about that very edited statement is that Oprah was PLANNING to leave her show anyway, she was ACTUALLY going to leave at 20 years... Pleas from her fans AND the kid helped her decide to stay on for five MORE years.

    Why make it sound like some 5 year old said, "quit at 25!" and she shut it down? You're better than this, Sandra.

    Morning!
    Poor baby. This is way too soon. :coffee:

  • http://www.myspace.com/importantblackwomen Necelove

    Whitney has even been dead for a month and she trying to get up in her face. Geesh....let the girl grieve. It's too soon. It's all about money and rating and who gets the first interview. It bet not be about no money, cause she has enough of it.

  • http://pearlswindow.com Carrington

    "too soon" for WHO? Bobbi Kristina & Whitney's family had the option to say, yes, no, next week, next year. They didn't, how is this being turned on Oprah? Can Oprah ome to YOUR house and "force" you to talk about ANYTHING much less some private, hurtful shiznit? I don't think so.

    No, I didn't. What did she say?

  • http://wineandgummybears.blogspot.com/ gypsyeyes

    You know that this could have been prompted from Bobby Kris. There has been a lot of media attention about her dad, family and her mom in a negative light. Maybe she trusts Oprah,maybe they have a relationship we know nothing about. There is a lot to be straightened out and I don't think that it is too soon. She has been accused of doing drugs,overdosing and shunning her dad. Maybe she wants to set the record straight herself.

    on topic: I think Oprah has a sensitivity that Babwa does not have. I STILL can't believe Whitney is not among the living.

  • capricorn83

    Lovezoe...I was DEAD at her adding sunglasses and earrings to the rice cakes!! lmao #classic

    I cannot stand Oprah. She used to be one who rallied for being above the fray and media feeding frenzy.

    Now, she stoops as low as everyone else. I started disliking her when MJ's trial was going on, and Oprah all but said the man was guilty. I thought that was dispicable. Everyone deserves a fair trial, and their due in court.

    I really hated her after she dissed MJ on her show during that trial, and then was the first one to shove a microphone in that families face. Michael Jackson had done everything he could to keep those kid's faces out of the public, so that they could enjoy being anonymous people.

    Sure, these families most-likely gave the okay. But I wonder how much pushing goes on behind the scenes? And when you lose people unexpectedly like the Jackson and Houston family did, you're not yourself anyway. You do things that you later regret because you are so full of grief and emotion.

    But the straw that broke the camel's back for me with Oprah was when she turned her back on the kids in Chicago's broken-down school system, and instead opted to build a school of excellence in Africa.

    Oprah said that all those kids want are "things" and not an education. First of all, Oprah is the one selling, promoting and giving away those things on her show. Secondly, Oprah is always crying a river about how poor SHE WAS, and how if it wasn't for some of her teachers reaching out to her, she would be nowhere.

    I don't care who doesn't like it. Phugg you too. But I hate that bytch.

    You know, I gave up the view that being shady only belonged to whites a long time ago.

    Oprah is every bit as shady as the rest of 'em. She is the first shark in the water as soon as the feeding frenzy begins.

    I never liked coffee until I went into nursing. I can drink a cup and go straight to bed. Guess Im immune now. Ive been hitting the gym lately so hopefully I can begin to replace it with water.

  • BigCityGirl

    I think this is TOO SOON for an interview...IDK whose idea it was,,but it hasn't even be a month yet! Bobbi K doesn't owe anyone anything! no explanations, no reasonings, no nothing...she needs to take care of HERSELF and mend her broken heart...shame on ALL of the adults involved who rushed this interview...its just too soon..

  • Lizzyb

    I ain't liked O since she dragged out the wagon of fat holding her breath....She is never going away..she can't live without the attention of her minions.
    This is way way too soon....nice looking out for this young woman who is going thru hell. Oprah doesn't seem to like her own mother so possibly she doesn't get how difficult this time is? No one should be asking BK silly azz questions about how she feels about her mother dying..and do you have a problem with drugs besides her personal therapist.
    Mad at the thought of this..really..

  • binks

    I agree that this is to soon, she needs to give it some time

  • £ the commenter formally known as Hershey

    Oprah had to jump on it, has she ever reported second hand exclusive stories? Not to my recollection, so before the right $$$ was offered to BK, she jumped on it. Smart move for Oprah and her network.

    #teamOprah :cheer: LOVE HER!!!!

    @Gyps I agree I def hope Bobbi K sets the record straight about Bobby and the funeral situation and their relationship in gen.

    If Bobbi K and any other fam mbrs agreed to do the interview then they feel they are ready. For all we know Oprah could have told her let me know when you are ready and she did just that. Trust if Bobbi K didn't want to talk she wouldn't have agreed to the interview.

    Oh yeah Rihanna is a FOOL :rofl: I was HOLLERING last night at her clowning on twitter

    I agree with u plus this might be part of the grieving process for her. I know for me, I hated how no one wanted to talk about the person I lost or just wanted to talk sh!t about the person but not to me. I was afraid I would forgot them and talking about them gave me a sense of peace. It must be hard to lose someone and go thru all this in the media but her mom was famous........

  • MissGauzzz

    I think it's too soon and don't care for Oprah's interview style. She talks over people and she probably won't let Bobbi Kris get out a complete sentence before she puts words in her mouth or finishes it for her. :no: I'll be tuning in though! Praying for Bobbi Kris because she gon' need it.

  • Daisy

    MEOW at all the Oprah shade :coffee:

    Sandra,

    Did you really need to photoshop Bobby Brown into that pic?

    Bobby looks "touched" in that pic.
