Bobbi Kristina

I'm Doing Oprah

'Cause I TRUST Her

3/6/2012 12:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0305_Bobbi-Kristina_oprah_tmz_getty_exBobbi Kristina isn't doing her first post-Whitney interview with Oprah Winfrey because of the money -- she's doing it because the big O's a close family friend ... and Bobbi trusts her to be fair and respectful.

Bobbi is telling friends -- Oprah "was loyal to my mom, and never did my mother wrong, or made her look bad. She always looked out for my mom."

As a result, we're told Bobbi feels Oprah would show her the same respect -- not bringing up issues that could potentially show Bobbi in a negative light ... i.e. substance abuse.

According to sources close to Bobbi, Oprah was one of the first people who reached out to her after Whitney passed.

So far, it's unclear if Bobbi is getting paid for the interview -- which airs this Sunday.

Oprah once said that none of her guest ever get paid. That is not their policy.

Of course Oprah reached out to her... Oprah's career is down the drain...(basically for her biased, and disrespectful manner of handling the 2008 elections..) She lost her journalistic integrity. I don't understand why celebrities make such a big deal about being put in a bad light. They put themselves in that position every day, and by doing the bad things to start with. Bobbie Kristina is following in her parent's footsteps with substance abuse problems. Whitney was a talented singer. She threw it all away when she became addicted to drugs. She trashed her voice, and her career had never been the same. She died. Enough is enough already. It's time to move on. And you can bet Bobbie Kristina IS being compensated for her "interview..."

Ofrah is a complete fraud. She has gotten rich off of this crap. And people just keep on buying into this snake in the grass.

I sure hope bobby kris is sober and not high on crack, cocaine, or pot during the interview, like her mom was during many interviews. Its kind of hard not to be critical of an addict when they show up for an interview where they dont wahnt to be seen in a negative light.

If Oprah was always there/looking out for Whitney, where was she when Whitney was drinking again? Oprah is out for OPRAH. Her ratings are down the tubes and she's desperate. Wonder how much help she's going to give Bobbi Kris?

Oprah shame on you for approaching this kid right after her mother died. Yet another show of yours that I will not be watching. And she chose you because you are also black.

Of course Ophrah. Black. And she sure will make Whitney look like an Angel and treat you with golden gloves. lm telling you as it was little girl...your mother was a drunk and drug addict who did not love you enough to stop. Nor did she respect herself. I would not want to see my dog in photos like l have seen your mother in. Hopefully this Whitney glorifing is soon over.

I have never seen or heard at any time when Oprah was ever disrespectful to the guests on her show. She is a classy lady whom many are jealous of because of her astounding success. My heart goes out to Bobbi Kristina because even though we lost a beautiful, gifted singer, she lost her mother.
