Oprah and Bobbi KristinaSunday night Oprah snagged one of the biggest interviews of the year when she sat down with Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law, brother, and daughter Bobbi Krirstina.

Speaking for the first time about the singer’s passing, Houston’s brother Gary and sister-in-law Patricia cleared up some of the rumors. According to Patricia, Whitney wasn’t getting high before her death and was excited about her upcoming projects. However, Patricia mentioned she was afraid Whitney was “looking for love in all the wrong places” and was “chasing” a younger man (Ray J, perhaps?). Patricia and Gary also commented on Whitney’s rocky marriage to Bobby Brown, saying he wasn’t to blame for her downward spiral. Gary also insisted that he liked Bobby and he was never barred from the funeral. Cissy Houston, Whitney’s mother, is understandably heartbroken and is unable to give interviews about her daughter’s death, but in a pre-taped conversation with Oprah she said she didn’t believe the funeral home leaked the pictures of Whitney’s body.

In one of the most poignant moments came when Oprah spoke to the love of Whitney’s life, Bobbi Kristina.

Although coping with her mother’s death has been rough on her, Bobby Kris say she still hears her mother’s voice and feels her spirit.

“I can hear her voice in spirit talking to me, telling me, ‘Keep moving,’ you know? ‘I’m right here—I got you,’” she told Oprah. “She’s always with me. I can always feel her, I can always feel her with me. That’s all I hear. She always asked me, ‘Do you need me?” One day, I caught myself —I don’t even know why I said it, but I said, ‘I always need you.”

Bobbi Kristina also told Oprah that she’s going to keep her mother’s legacy alive by following in her footsteps and singing and acting.

“She was preparing me for this…she was preparing me for what’s to come,” Bobbi Krstina said.

    It looked like Oprah wanted to take a bite out of her.

    I really hope Bobbi Kristina lives her life quietly.Whitney was dragged through the mud so much by the media.I hope her daughter doesn’t give the tabloids a part two.

    I wish her nothing but the best. This interview was wrong, wrong and wrong. This young woman needed more time to grief and talk about it.

    Did it ever occur to those of you that are critical of oprah,that she was contacted by the family to do this interview in order to dispel some of the horrible speculation about whitneys death and the wellbeing of her child? I Thought she was very caring and respectful and when she broke down crying when the sister in law told how Whitney was found dead it was very genuine.There was noone better to do the interview she has obviously had some connection with the family before. It seems oprahs going to be criticized no matter what,another blog said although she did a great interview she didn’t have enough commercials promoting the shows on her network. D**n. She just cant win
