Oprah Winfrey
has finally found a way to get people to watch OWN -- she's scored an interview with family members of Whitney Houston, including daughter Bobbi Kristina

The show "Oprah's Next Chapter" will feature Houston's only daughter ... as well as Patricia Houston, her sister-in-law and manager, and Houston's brother Gary. It is scheduled to air next Sunday. 

Oprah was one of the guests invited to Houston's funeral in Newark, NJ last month.

Houston was 48-years-old when she was found dead in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton on February 11.

Way too soon. Bobbi should concentrate on therapy not going in front of the world with Oprah's leading questions.

Oprah is a pig. I do not by her claims of being molested for one second. She has demonstrated she craves attention. She used to give people in her audience cars in an effort to get people to watch and she threw a pathetic hissy fit on Piers Morgan when she recalled that Beloved failed at the box office The media has feared her greatly because she called the beef industry out for Mad Cow Disease in 1996 and got books in the New York Times ten best selling list. The media is too blind to see that she's a has-been. Even the last book she had in her club, the Charles ****ens book Great Expectations, failed to even make the top 20

I am sure she would like to clarify any misconception we as a society might have or concluded about her mother. I am sure it will be done in a gentle thoughtful way as Oprah is. Its a good thing. Lena

You people are nuts. Its not like Oprah is holding a gun to these peoples heads. You are making it sound like Oprah is forcing them to be on her show. She asked, they could have said no. They did not. End of story.

I honestly hope that this posting about Oprah landing an interview with Whitney's daughter, etc. is not true. At least not at this time. Whitney's family is still in an acute state of shock, disbelief and grief. But, whatever that arrangement may be I do and have felt like Oprah's OWN Network is struggling. It hasn't quite caught on as they had hoped and I feel as if it is more of a 'timing' issue. Oprah has what it takes and then some to operate a network that could one day surpass the major networks combined but I don't see it anytime soon. The majority of her audience in the past were used to a certain time allotment to watch her show and they are somewhat lost with the new format. She is almost 'ahead of her time' in what she hopes to achieve (at this time). I see success perhaps but it's going to take TIME, patience and some restructuring and reconnecting with her audience on what the OWN Network (as a whole) is all about.

Is Oompah still on tv? Also, who cares? And yes, let's get the poop on W. Houston's drug abuse from her daugher. Another home run, Oompah!
