This Sunday on Oprah Winfrey‘s interview show “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” the Big O gets timely, with the first big interview with members of the late Whitney Houston‘s family. She talks to Whitney’s brother and sister-in-law, Gary and Patricia Houston, but the big “get” is the first in-depth conversation with Whitney’s only child, Bobbi Kristina Brown.
In the promo clip above, the only glimpse we get of Bobbi Kris — who has been making tabloid headlines about her erratic behavior in the month since her mother died — is Winfrey giving her a big hug. That’s about all we’ll see until at least the end of the week, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the morsels of interview OWN doles out are going to be small. This is the fledgling network’s biggest coup to this point, showing that Oprah still has tremendous pull despite a lower profile on cable, and they’re going to take full advantage of it.
