Bobbi Kristina

I'm Doing Oprah

'Cause I TRUST Her

3/6/2012 5:00 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.

That girl is ugly as hell. I'm sorry. I can't hold it in anymore. I wish TMZ would refrain from posting pictures when they do articles about Bobbi Kirstina. Seriously. The poor girl didn't inherit a single shred of her mother's physical beauty. She did, however, inherit her drug addiction.

The Big "O" just sent Gail a Tweet and told her to tell all of you Haters to go "POUND SAND" as if none of you have a drug addict in your own families! Geesh!

So the big O won't be asking "negative" questions.. She is so trustworthy and all, plus the price is right.. I doubt there were other offers for an interview with Bobbi.. Why would there be? She's not the first daughter to have lost a mother. Besides I can see the "fluff" from over here..

WHEN OPRAH WANTS SOMETHING... THE PRICE IS ALWAYS RIGHT. AS MONTE HALL USED TO SAY, "LET'S MAKE A DEAL!!!"

Oprah is a vulture looking to boost her ratings. The woman has ice in her chest instead of a heart. No wonder she never had children, she is a narcissist. Bobbi had two episodes after her Mother's demise, is a substance abuser, grieving and Oprah wants to pick at her emotions???? Oprah where is your moral compass?

So why do an interview if she is just going to hold her hand and not ask the tough question?? Ratings! O network is worthless, one interview is not going to save it.

Oprah has to prey on young drug addicts, everyone else has moved on and wants nothing to do with her since she told America that she was supporting Obama for office. O used him too, and look where that got her. Failure!

I think it's great if Oprah wants to help Bobbi Kristina. Lord knows that girl could use a positive role model. However, interviewing her, so soon after her Mom's death, just seems like exploitation. If she's really a family friend, the best thing to do would advise Bobbi Kristina to stay away from all media, get help if she needs it (substance abuse, counseling after her Mom's death), and to go to college and find a career outside of the entertainment industry.

k - so, i truly appreciated whitney's talent. her voice was a constant soundtrack through my adolescence. but, this interview? yeah, its entirely overrated. i really have no interest in watching an interview w the daughter of a woman who passed away, SIMPLY because of the fact that the woman passed away. it doesn't make any sense. it just smacks of sensationalism.

Well, if Miss Mouth is only going to ask questions which make her look good why bother? Where is the truth in journalism there. Oprah is so BORING!
