2/16/2012 10:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

If family is so concerned about a small service why is it so important for Oprah to attend. Isn't it more important that her loyal fans are given an opportunity to say goodbye. Whitney belonged to the world. She loved her fans. Whitney was multi-faceted.

SHE AND TYLER PERRY MIGHT BE HAND IN HAND, because thats her CHURCH MAN these days. She takes him to church with her all the time as an escort, but I must say Oprah might be pushing her OWN network advertisements outside the sanctuary

She's been in show business for 30+ years...Who the hell did you think was going to attend "Tammy" from the local cafe? I guys would complain over smelly feces. "OMG this **** stinks!!!" LOL...Are you seriously complaining because Oprah is a success..."All she cares about is ratings!" Well that's stating the obvious. Last time I checked people weren't tuning in to watch paint dry. It's her JOB. Don't be mad because she has one and is creating jobs for a lot of other people as well. What have you done for the good of the public lately? NOTHING. Just hating for MF reason.

• Whitney Houston confessed to Diane Sawyer that she was the devil. She also stated in that interview that she was a child of God. That’s very
confusing. You have to be one or the other.
