Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina spoke publicly for the first time about her mother’s death during Sunday’s episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” on OWN network.
Oprah kept the conversation light and didn’t ask Krissy any tough questions about her alleged drug use, her two hospital stays after her mother’s death or her strained relationship with her father, Bobby Brown. Oprah asked her pretty general questions.
Bobbi Kristina, enters the room, and Oprah welcomes her and asks how she’s doing.
“I’m doing as good as I possibly can at this point,” she said. “I’m just trying to keep going.” Before she told Oprah her family is helping her get through it. “I can hear her voice telling me to keep moving, baby, I gotcha. She’s always with me. I can always feel her with me,” she added.
Bobbi Kristina said she did the interview so everyone can know about her mother’s spirit. “No one knows what an amazing spirit she was,” she said. “She wasn’t only a mother, she was a best friend.”
Houston’s sister-in-law Patricia Houston, who is also the executor of Whitney’s estate, dealt with the tough questions.
Oprah talks to Patricia about the events that occurred two nights before Whitney Houston’s death. Patricia confirmed that Whitney got into an argument with X Factor contestant Stacy Francis at a nightclub but it didn’t get physical.
The most emotional moment of the interview was when Patricia recalls finding Whitney in the hotel room. She said as she made her way towards the room, she heard screams. She saw Whitney’s assistant, Mary, screaming.
“I knew something was wrong,” she told Oprah. “I didn’t know what. I was just numb.”
When she got into the room, her brother and Whitney’s bodyguard, Ray, was trying to revive the singer. Paramedics arrived at that point.
“Then I saw her,” Patricia said, as tears rolled down her face. “She had a peaceful look on her face.”
The paramedics asked Patricia to leave at that point, but she said she couldn’t do it.
“I saw them cover her up and I knew that was it,” she said. Looking at her and watching that, I still could not believe it. I could not believe it.” Patricia described the whole day as surreal.
Patricia’s husband and Whitney’s older brother Gary joined the last segment. Gary said Whitney’s death had been rough on their mother, Cissy Houston. Oprah says she invited Cissy to speak on the show, but she said she wasn’t ready.
Gary sang a rendition of Whitney’s song “I Look to You” while his daughter played on their piano. He broke down into tears during the final verse of the song.
