Bobbi Kristina with mother Whitney Houston
Oprah Winfrey delivers yet again with probably the most riveting interview in television history as she gets up close and personal with the Houston family just a month later after singer Whitney Houston’s death.
The interview took place in the Houston’s family home in Georgia…the spirit of Whitney reaked throughout the household on this day..
Bobbi Kristina, the only child of the late singer, was the first to be interviewed.
She appeared somewhat nervous, as this was her first time speaking in front of the cameras in regards to the fond memories she has with her mother, and thus…
how she felt now that she was gone.
A beautiful Bobbi Kristina gave her heart-warming interview standing besides a white piano in her family’s home.
When asked what was her fondest memories with her mother, she didn’t hesitate for one second, “On tour”, she replied to Oprah as she smiled shyly. The expression in her eyes resembling eerily to that of her mother’s.
When asked if she was somewhat rebellious throughout her teens, she agreed to a point, explaining, “I was a little rebellious. But at the end it was always mommy, mommy, mommy….”
Oprah asked the 19yr old what was her last day like with her mother.
A moment of silence filled the air before she said, “I asked my mother if she could stay with me for a while….and she did. All day and all night she stood with me. She held me all night long.”
She went on to say that she always feels her mother’s presence since her untimely death. “It’s only flesh,” she referred to one’s body. “The spirit lives through….her spirit is so strong.”
She confided in Oprah that she feels her mother’s spirit around her.
“When ever I feel down, I hear my mother’s voice telling me, ‘I got you’.
She also went on to say that she would see the lights flicker on and off throughout the house, and is sure that is the spirit of her late mother. “When I see the lights flicker on and off, I be like, ‘Mommy, what are you doing?'”
Whitney’s brother Gary also gave that of a memorable interview, as he remembered a young Whitney often singing in the basement of their childhood home with her mother’s heels and wigs.
“We were extremely close”, he told Oprah in the two hour televised bare all interview.
When asked about his feelings towards ex-brother in law, singer Bobbi brown, he blankly stated,”Bobby was a good guy.”
Oprah wanted to clarify to the world if it was true that they (the Houston family) were against Bobbi Brown attending Whitney’s funeral.
“Absolutely NOT”, he answered. “If anything… He was supposed to be there.”
Gary also spoke candidly of what his mother, Cissi Houston, always had forever instilled in the family’s mind, “My mom used to say, ‘Whitney’s not gonna be with us for long….She’s an angel, a gift, she is soon to be returned to heaven..To God.”
The beautiful family like gathering (Oprah was very, very close to Whitney herself) finished off with Gary singing Whitney’s ‘I look to you’. In between the song they had to stop taping for a moment when he burst out in tears….
The interview was long awaited, and well worth watching. It was beautifully, thus respectfully, carried out the way Whitney Houston would have wanted.
