I was slow to warm to OWN and especially the Rosie show....however, in the last couple of weeks, I caught a few of her shows and what a difference. Loved the Kathy Griffen double show and most everything since then
I found a lot of fault when Rosie's show first aired. I complained about most everything and hoped they would revamp it. THANK God they did. I like the new version much better.
the Tony Bennet interview with Rosie was perfect. This is what I hope she keeps doing
Could ditch all day Prison Wives and Unfaithful. Touch the light.
The last word isn't really important in situations when nobody is listening.
Instead of starting a new thread, I figured I would just post this here.
Did anyone catch the Oprah Interview with Whitney Houstons daughter Bobbi Kristina. I kinda wondered if she was on any sort of type of medication. She seemed almost to calm for someone who lost there mother 3 weeks ago. Especially for someone who is obviously heartbroken and was very close to there mother.
I watched the interview with my boyfriend and a few friends and they all agreed she seemed very calm. I'm 25 (going to be 26 in a few months) so about seven year age difference between me and bobbi kristina, and I know if I lost my mother I would not be that calm.
I haven't seen it yet, but I'm pretty sure Bobbi Kris is numb. This is not even real to her yet....well, it is, and it isn't. It's not nearly as real as it is going to get for her. There is a lot going on around her, and that distracts you from dealing with your emotions. When my mother died (I was her baby), the funeral director (a lifelong friend who had lost his father not long before I lost my mother), told us that it will hit you in about 6 months. He said he didn't know what it was about that 6-month mark, but it's like a ton of bricks. He was right. It was strange. Before that I was dealing with friends/relatives, after-death duties, my 2 year old son, my ongoing everyday life and I was busy...and then it got quiet....and that's when reality came home for me. I'm not surprised that Bobbi Kris is still on "automatic pilot."
It's just one of those things that you won't/can't "get" until you go through it.

My mom passed when I was 39 yrs old. I can tell you that you are kind of numb. I am sure most of my friends had been surprised by how well I was taking it all. about 6 weeks later I had a breakdown and had to take a leave of absence from work. It will come and hopefully her family will make sure she is able to handle it.

I saw the interview and a body language expert who watched it and said that Bobbi Kristina was angry and trying to avoid being trapped. She said her fist pumping gestures she made indicate hidden anger, which is understandable. She said the standing for the interview indicated her desire to avoid being trapped.
Yes, first of all the STANDING was so ODD. Do you really think lights are going on and off in that house and she is saying "Mom, I know that is you" … that was ODD as well. Also, I know I would have been a MESS if my Mom had been gone only 3 weeks. She has to be on something. I messed her 'fist pump' .. AND there is NO WAY I would be staying in that house she shared with her Mom ALL ALONE. NO WAY. I would not be able to walk in the door for weeks.
I thought Patty and Gary seemed like absolutely lovely people and I lost it when Gary broke down while singing … so so so sad that she is gone.
On another note, I have not seen Oprah since her show ended last year … she looks like she has put weight on.
