A few wondered aloud just how Oprah Winfrey was able to secure an interview with Bobbi Kristina Brown now that her top rated daytime talk show is gone and is still trying improve her new channel, OWN, with respect to both the networks niche and its ratings. It seems what won Bobbi Kris over is what often wins many of Oprah’s sought after guests to her show: trust. Bobbi is reportedly telling her friends that Oprah “was loyal to my mom, and never did my mother wrong, or made her look bad. She always looked out for my mom.”
To that end, Bobbi Kris feels Oprah would offer her a similar level of respect and not pry into issues that might make her look bad — namely her own rumors of troubles with substance abuse. Sources close to Bobbi Kris also say that Oprah was won of the first to reach out to her after Whitney Houston’s death. As of now, though, there’s no confirmation as to whether or not Bobbi Kristina was compensated for her interview.
