If you can believe it, we’re just a little over a month away from the anniversary of Whitney Houston’s death.

With that upon us, Lady O will be sitting down with Whitney’s mother, Cissy, in one of the few interviews she’s given since her daughter’s passing. Oprah interview Bobbi Kristina as well as Greg and Pat Houston, Whitney’s brother and sister-in law, respectively, not long after the passing of Whitney. While Cissy did participate in the Lifetime reality show, On Our Own, she hasn’t done much talking about what the last year has been like on her.

The date has not been released but it is expected to air within the first two weeks of February.

But that’s not all with OWN. Network president Erik Logan recently held a meeting with the media where he broke down the good progress OWN has made, primarily thanks to Oprah showing her face more on the channel with Next Chapter. They’ve also seen great strides in the ratings when new episodes of Master Class have aired.  According to Logan their 2012 year end numbers were in the double digits, as reported by the NY Daily News.

Oprahhas quite a few stars lined up for interviews such as LL Cool J, Susan Sarandon and Alicia Keys (we already know you’ll be tuned in for that one).  Sounds good!

Can you believe it’ll be one year since we lost Whitney? Will you be tuned in to Next Chapter featuring Cissy Houston?

    I’m honestly tired of hearing from Whitney’s family. They really seem to be milking her death for all its worth. Them doing a reality show was just tacky. There’s nothing wrong with her mother doing an interview,I have no problem with that but I’m willing to bet the rest of the family will probably be a part of it too. Bobby Brown is the person that people should be interviewing about Whitney because he knew her better than anyone. He seems to be the only not trying to use her death for his own personal gain.

      Exactly.

      So true. Especially the sister-in-law, she just comes across as an opportunist. I guess as Whitney’s manager, her death left her out of a job so she’s trying to find other sources of income. I don’t know of any other artists that she manages.
