Whitney Houston’s family sat down with Oprah and talked a little bit about Whitney and her last days.Â Bobbi Kristina appeared a few moments after Oprah arrived atÂ PatricaÂ Houston’s home and she talked withÂ OprahÂ for a few minutes Â and told her still feels Whitney’s spirit around her and she plans to ‘follow her legacy’ and sing and dance.
“She’s always with me. I can always feel her. I can always feel her with me. She always asked me, ‘Do you need me?’ And I caught myself, out of nowhere, I didn’t even know I said it, I said, ‘I’ll always need you.'”
“I have to carry on the legacy,” says Bobbi Kristina. “We’re going to do the singing thing. Some acting, some dancing.”
OprahÂ then sat down withÂ PatriciaÂ Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law and closest confidant and sheÂ revealedÂ her worries for Whitney. Patricia believed Whitney was chasing a dream by dating a younger man (Ray J) and trying to life that lifestyle.
â€œIt wasnâ€™t about substance abuse.I saw her chasing a dream. Looking for love in all the wrong placesâ€¦ The dream she was chasing was youngerâ€¦ She was chasing something that would ultimately hurt her.â€
Patricia also talked about Whitney’s last days, her altercation with Stacy Francis at a club and finding her in the bathtub.Â PatriciaÂ says Whitney wanted to go to the club and so she joined her and there was anÂ incidentÂ with the ‘X Factor’ contestant who she says was following Whitney around.
There have been lots of talk of a confrontation that she had. Well, there was, kind of. There were words back and forth between [Whitney] and a young lady I believe was on â€˜The X Factor.â€™ She comes over, and she says hello, but you keep seeing her. Every corner that we go to, here she comes. Didnâ€™t know her. She didnâ€™t know her from Adam.
I donâ€™t know what the initial conversation was. I just know that it didnâ€™t feel right â€¦ I saw expressions. I saw tears â€¦ from the young lady. I said, â€˜Itâ€™s time to go.â€™ [Whitney] did not want to leave. I said, â€˜No.â€™
I didnâ€™t hear the words [of the argument]. There was no physical fighting. I would never let that happen. And we headed out that door [….]I donâ€™t know her, and I donâ€™t have anything negative at all to say about her. Iâ€™m just saying what I saw. And she made herself present everywhere we were.
The Patricia went on to discuss finding Whitney in the bathtub face down,
I was working in my room and decided I needed to go pick up something pertaining to the party. Mary (Whitneyâ€™s assistant) checked on her before we left. Sheâ€™d been asking for me all morning. â€¦ She called my phone twice. She hadnâ€™t seen my face. Usually I go up and see her and that was one day I didnâ€™t. [I headed down the hallway] and I hear screams. I kept walking very slow. A woman opened her door and said, â€˜Is everything all right?â€™ I said â€˜Dial 911.â€™
I knew something was wrong. I didnâ€™t know what. I was just numb. I walked as I got closer and I turn the corner, Maryâ€™s at the door and sheâ€™s screaming, â€˜Oh my god.â€™ I told her to stop. â€˜Calm down, please. I saw my brother, Ray (security guard), trying to revive her to the point of exhaustion. The paramedics were coming in at that point. I said, â€˜Ray, let it go.â€™â€ â€¦ He was so out of breath. I felt so badly for him. Then I saw her. She had a peaceful look on her face. She had a peaceful look.
I know they had to pull her out of (the tub). [The Paramedics asked me to leave]. I just couldnâ€™t do it. I said, â€˜Donâ€™t touch me, please.â€™ I couldnâ€™t leave her. I could not leave her. I saw them cover her up and I knew that was it. I knew that that was it. Looking at her and watching that, I still could not believe it. I could not believe it. [Bobbi Kristina was down the hall]. I just had to keep my calm. One of the hardest things Iâ€™ve ever had to do, but I had to do it.â€
It was an emotional interview with Whitney’s brother, Gary singing her song and breaking down.
