“I’m doing as good as I possibly can,” Bobbi Kristina Brown tells Oprah in her first interview since her mom, Whitney Houston’s, Feb. 11 death
Whitney Houston's only child, Bobbi Kristina Brown, told Oprah Winfrey in an interview Sunday that she plans to "carry on the legacy" and launch a singing and acting career of her own.
"I gotta carry on her legacy," she said during the "Oprah's Next Chapter" interview with Winfrey. "We're gonna do the singing thing. We're gonna do some acting, some dancing."
"It's a lot of pressure," Houston's daughter with Bobby Brown said. "But (my mom) prepared me for it. She was preparing me for this. She was preparing me for what was to come."
Brown, who still lives in the home she shared with her late mom in Atlanta, also told Winfrey she's "doing as good as I possibly can" and that she still feels Houston's presence.
"I feel her pass through me all the time. I wake up at night," said Brown, who turned 19 less than a month after her mom died. "She would say at 5 a.m. the saints start praying. I wake up now and look at the clock and it's 5 o'clock. I start praying."
Brown said her mom even continues to joke with her.
"Lights turn on and off (in the house) and I'm like, 'Mom, what are you doing?'" Brown said. "I can still laugh with her and still talk to her."
