Oprah Winfrey has snagged an exclusive interview with the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, for Oprah’s Next Chapter airing Sunday, March 11 at 9:00 p.m.
In addition to Bobbi Kristina, Oprah Winfrey will speak to Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law and manager Patricia (Pat) Houston, and brother Gary Houston.
According to a release from the network (OWN): “Bobbi Kristina shares personal memories of her mom and how she would like the iconic superstar to be remembered. The family also addresses the rumors and speculation surrounding Houston’s death.”
Before the interview at 7:00 p.m., OWN will re-air its special, Remembering Whitney: The Oprah Interview, which features the singer’s 2009 interview on The Oprah Winfrey Show and Oprah Winfrey’s own personal memories of the star.
The initial February 16 airing of the Remembering Whitney special, which aired within a week of Whitney Houston’s sudden death, brought in 830,000 viewers and offered solid showings in weekend encores.
OWN, which struggled with viewership in its first year, is seeing an upswing in its year-over-year ratings as Oprah Winfrey has stepped into a more on-screen role with shows like Oprah’s Next Chapter and Oprah’s Lifeclass.
