Always enlisted to garner the exclusive, Oprah Winfrey has secured the “mother of all interviews” with the late Whitney Houston’s daughter, sister-in-law and brother – the first interview from the family since Houston’s death on Feb. 11.
With the obvious topics and reflections of Whitney’s life being the crux of this conversation, they also plan to dispel rumors and accusations regarding the icon since her passing. Many claim that there are hope that this will breath life into OWN’s Nielson’s rating, which have been less then stellar since the company’s unveiling in Jan. 2011.
One can only pray that Bobbi Christina has sought the proper channels and guidance for grieving properly over her loss. Both Hollywood and the entertainment industry have piss poor reputation for throwing the peace sign to the families of those they’ve so willingly exploited (ex. Maya Campbell). I won;t pretend to understand her pain and suffering at this time. I can only pray that she truly has knowledge of God and falls HEAD FIRST into her faith and will to live.
The interview will air March 11 on OWN, Winfrey’s cable network, as part of the “Oprah’s Next Chapter” series. The time has yet to be disclosed.

Like Solange I decided (no pun intended) to take the “big chop” (or the “BC” as they refer to it in natural hair world) and went au natural. The motives behind my decision was mainly about the amount of money I was spending each month on products, styling and the time it took to get my hair done. Society creates so many stigmas against beauty and appearance and I really prided myself on how “laid” my wrap always was.
Truth is, the rebel in me just wanted to take that chance and rid myself of all the financial, physical and psychological constraints that I allow society to put on me. It’s been almost three years since I’ve had a relaxer and although the first year was brutal. I literally used to walk past the perm aisle and start shaking. It takes a different type of person to go natural and bear the brunt of the world an their cruel opinions.
Spiritually, I feel as though it has brought me closer to myself. I was forced to look at the “man in the mirror” and face my flaws and strengths, and that is truly humbling.
Physically, I felt better because of the lack of toxins that I was exposing my body to every 6 weeks.
Psychologically, I am more aware of who I am and am no longer am concerned of the stares, gawks or lame remarks from other folk who can’t cope.
Chris Rock’s new film “Good Hair” is a breath of fresh of for me. I have no issues with folk who still use perms or other chemicals on their hair. I just know that if they were properly informed & educated it would feel a certain kind of way. Thoughts? Opinions? Discuss.
