Oprah Winfrey has managed to turn the tragedy of Whitney Houston's passing into a ratings triumph for OWN, her struggling cable network. Winfrey's special Oprah's Next Chapter interviews with the late Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown and the icon's brother and sister-in-law, Gary and Pat Houston, brought 3.5 million viewers to OWN Sunday night.
The 90-minute episode, taped in Houston's adopted hometown of Atlanta, GA, netted OWN a 3.1 among women 25-54. During the interview, Brown revealed how she still talks to her mother and plans to follow in her footsteps, via a career in the entertainment industry; while Pat Houston all but admitted her sister-in-law's relationship with much younger R&B singer/reality star Ray J had the legendary diva "looking for love in all the wrong places," during her last days.
