After being hospitalized twice following Whitney Houston’s death, it sounds like Bobbi Kristina Brown is dealing with the loss of her mother in a much more serene way, judging by her interview with Oprah for last night’s Oprah’s Next Chapter. “I’m doing as good as I possibly can at this point. I’m just trying to keep going,” the 19-year-old said. “I can hear her voice telling me, ‘Keep moving, baby. I got you.’ She’s always with me. I can always feel her with me.”
Oh, OK. That’s good. We know the feeling … that the memories of our dead loved ones live on in us, right?
“I feel her pass through me all the time. I wake up at night,” she went on. Oh, wait, she’s talking literally. Whitney is still hanging out with her daughter in their Atlanta home, and making her wake up at 5 a.m. to pray (which is kinda mean, Whit. Can’t you let her sleep in? She’s had a rough time of it!). “Lights turn on and off and I’m like, ‘Mom, what are you doing?’ I can still laugh with her and still talk to her.”
Well, we’re happy she’s laughing, at least. And hoping that the ghost of Whitney does not become the stage-mom type, and not the other person in the “we” Bobbi Kristina spoke of when she told Oprah of her plans to carry on her mom’s legacy: “We’re gonna do the singing thing. Some acting, some dancing.”
