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.

Kevin Costner, Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin are also expected to participate in the funeral services.

Invite? Guest list? Moments like this are for everybody to say goodbye to the one who loved/respect/admire. What is this? A party? What a family Whitney had!!! No wonder she ended like this, she was so lonely!!!
RIP Whitney and may God watch over your daughter and give her the strenght and happiness you didn't have!

Figures that Oprah would be there. Can't stand her, never could. It makes sense that Kevin Costner and Aretha would be there, he co starred with her and Aretha was her god mother. All Oprah wants to do is keep her name out there since she tanked at being a network mogul.

Thank God Whitney's family weren't running her business affairs while she was alive. These so called family members sounds like vultures in costumes. Reading about how they haven't owned up on Whitney's reality life affairs. Trying to keep Bobbi Kristine (whom is 18 - legally grown) away from her father Bobby Brown and bivkering about where to lay her to rest... I have loss all respect for the Houston family. I love Whitney but the way her family carries on I see hwy she chose the path of her choice. R.I.P Sister Whitney Houston. May God be with your daughter... especially is they try to control her. smh @ Cissy Houston and Warwick's behavior. There's a place in hell for your type!

Is it me or did anyone find Oprah's interview with Whitney, a little disrespectful? It seems as if she attempted to trash Whitney.

Hey Oprah! Have you asked to broadcast the funeral on your cable channel to try to boost your ratings yet?

The great exploiter of people Oprah Winfrey should go away and stop thinking America cares about her, we would forget her quickly if she could just stay home.
