A coup d’etat for media whore consummate Oprah Winfrey.
It has just been revealed that Oprah Winfrey has scored a major win with the express agreement that the recently deceased daughter of Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina Brown has agreed to a one on one interview with the media titan.
The talk will be broadcast on Oprah’s Next Chapter Sunday March 11th at 9pm. At present a press release from the network states that ‘Bobbi Kristina shares personal memories of her mom and how she would like the iconic superstar to be remembered. Present at the interview which is said to have taken place earlier this week was Whitney Houston’s sister in law and manager Patricia Houston and Whitney Houston’s brother Gary Houston.
What though may not get to be discussed on the show are the allegations that are beginning to make daily fodder on the tabloid rags.
One report being circulated as of this morning has it that the teen shared the same drug dealer as her mother.
Says celebdirtylaundry: Whitney Houston and her daughter, Bobbi Kristina, shared the same drug dealer according to sources who have come forward. It is alleged that in the final months of Whitney’s life she was getting regularly supplies with drugs from a dealer named Jay who drove a black Cadillac Escalade when he made his deliveries. But here is the ugly twist: an insider reveals that Jay was not only ‘taking care’ of Whitney but he was also supplying drugs and booze to 18-year-old Bobbi Kristina!
Another report floating the web which is also very unlikely to be broached on the show are allegations of escalating tensions between that of the teenager and her grandmother Cissy Houston who has been pushing for her daughter to enter rehab to no avail.
But the travails don’t stop there. Reports entertainmentwise:
But the only daughter of the late star is fighting to stay in Atlanta with her ‘brother’ because it is the only place she feels close to her late mother.
A source told HollywoodLife: “[Cissy] tried to convince her to move back to New Jersey so she could be closer to Whitney’s side of the family, but apparently, Krissy wants to stay in Atlanta. Being in Atlanta is the only way she can feel remotely close to her mother.”
According to TMZ her grandmother, Cissy Houston who has taken responsibility for the youngster has banned Nick from seeing Bobbi Kristina and even evicted him from his Atlanta home.
Banned her? Can anyone guess why the concerned Houston matriarch would ban the wild teenager from remaining in Atlanta. Unfortunately it seems what one could have hoped to have been a sobering and revealing exclusive will be at best a glamorized pubic relations stunt primed to look otherwise. Congratulations Oprah….
