On Sunday, March 11, Oprah will talk with Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, Houston’s sister-in-law, Patricia Houston, and Houston’s brother, Gary Houston, on a special episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter airing on the OWN Network.
Bobbi Kristina will share personal memories of her late mother and will reflect on how she would like the iconic superstar to be remembered. The family will also address the rumors and speculation surrounding Houston’s death.
In a brief sneak peak video released by OWN, Oprah asks two questions: “Does it feel real yet [that she’s gone]?” and “As a big brother, how did you feel about Bobby Brown?”

Oprah has been on an uphill battles to build ratings for OWN since launching the network in January 2011.
In an attempt to gain more viewers, Oprah introduced her new prime-time series months ago, Oprah’s Next Chapter. On the show, which airs once a week, the queen of talk steps outside of the studio for enlightening conversations with newsmakers, celebrities, and real-life families.
Thus far Oprah has interviewed Sean Penn, New Jersey governor Chris Christie, Steven Tyler, Paula Deen, and George Lucas, but her Houston-family interview has seemingly generated the most buzz yet for OWN.
Preceding the special, OWN will re-air Remembering Whitney: The Oprah Interview, which features the talk show diva reflecting on her personal memories of the songstress as well as Houston’s last in-depth television interview from The Oprah Winfrey Show.
Oprah’s Next Chapter with the Houston family will air Sunday at 9/8C on OWN. Will you be watching?
