Oprah Winfrey has made the cut ... and is one of the stars who has received one of the coveted invitations to Whitney Houston's funeral on Saturday ... TMZ has learned.

Houston family sources tell us ... several of Houston's famous friends have been invited, but Oprah is by far the most famous person on the guest list.

We're told Houston family members are hopeful Oprah will attend.

Depending upon where Oprah is in her cycle, she may be taking up two seats

They could invite the Pope himself and Oprah would STILL be the most famous person on the guest list.

Really !!!! Its all about Money but I am sure Oprah knows who wants to use her , her money and her name
Its bad for Oprah to be connected to an drug addict and lets be honest
Whitney is happy to be death , she couldn't handle the struggle what is called LIFE although she had everything she was a worthless weak junkie.
I am annoyed to hear about all this drug addicts who are idolist and his so called rolemodels

Poor, poor Mindy ...    

ATTENTION! If there is food served afterwards grab as many pigs in a blanket and buffalo wings as you can possibly carry because once ORCA sees them they're history!

I think Oprah coming would be great. I know she believed in Whitney, even when Whitney lost faith in herself.
