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.

This is a smart move on her part. Any other person looking to interview her would be asking her the wrong questions at this fragile time in her life. With Oprah being a close friend of the family, and being at the funeral she knows what we didnt see via camera at that funeral before and after so letting her do it shows that the right questions will be asked and they won't be intimidating nor hurtful to her feelings. Other ppl will ask her well how do you feel now that your mom is dead? DUMB AS QUESTION!! ok how did you feel seeing your mother on drugs?? DUMB ASS QUESTION!! how the f*ck you expect this girl to feel?

In other words, BK doesn't want Oprah to talk about her drug abuse. Classic enabler.

Celebrities Suck    

Trust Oprah ? lol Oprah only wants to air your dirt, if she cared so much for you she'd give you the money for the interview and interview you in the private of your own home with no cams.

What is this girl doing with her life besides snorting? Going to school or work? In the past noone was a celebrity unless they had actually done something or had talent. Now they're big news just because their parents were. Hollyrot is a toilet bowl.

My heart breaks for Bobbi K because truth be told this is a face that only a mother could love. Her inheritance, if any, may not be enough for BK to attract a partner - even if she does get the face fixed. But how to get the $$$ ? Enter Oprah.

YOU are doing the "show" because she Pays and Won't Dare ask or speak the Truth about Any of it. You get a payday and the chance to clean up afer Mommy, once again...

YOU are doing the "interview", which will NOT discuss Truth, only the cleaned up version and get paid. Those are your Reasons. YOU will USE your mom and her story to further support your lifestyle which doesn't include a Single Day of Real work. Oprah will do the same, and on an on it goes...

Bobbi Kristina is still a very young lady and I think it's too soon for an interview even with Oprah. Oprah is exploiting her for ratings for her failing network. What's the point of the interview if you don't ask poignant questions concerning her mothers substance abuse and perhaps her own. Oprah's doing this for ratings. Not to bring up certain issues confirms that to me. Thought Oprah likes to have sit downs with people over life's lessons. This would certainly be one for a young lady such as BK,except it's too soon after her mothers death and Oprah knows it. Yes, Oprah is one of the wealthiest people but she's not use to failing and her tv network is. Oprah has prided herself in helping the poor,youth and the elderly. In order to see her tv network you have to pay for cable and for many in that group they can't afford cable or they don't want cable period. She's lost alot of viewers thinking they would run out and buy cable to see her, I for one have cable but yet have not seen anything on her network that I want to watch. I do wish the best for Bobbi Kristina.

Don't BS us. She's doing Oprah because for 1. She needs her 15 minutes of FAME, and 2. Everybody knows if it involves blacks, It's Oprah to the rescue!!! Now that's the stone cold truth. BTW, I thought Oprah retired or ate her self to death or something???

Geez!.....so Oprah won't ask any question regarding Whitney's substance abuse.....or Bobby Brown substance abuse....and I gues not even ask Bobbi Kristina's own substance abuse so what the hell will they be talking about?? The perfect family? I think not....Oprah will try for ratings and Bobbi Kristina will get $$$$. They will sugar coat this interview....what a waste of air time!
