In an interview with Houston family members that only the most obsessive Whitney Houston fans might appreciate, Oprah tries to provide new details about the life and final days of the pop legend.

The interview was promoted as the first time Houston’s daughter would speak in public about her mother’s death.

And in the Atlanta home of the late singer’s brother Gary and sister-in-law Pat, Oprah employed a strategy of trying to reveal the real Whitney. But after the tsunami of media coverage in the wake of her death, only the most obsessive Houston fans might be interested in another examination of the star’s life that revealed little new insight.

The show began awkwardly as the entire interview with Houston’s daughter was conducted standing as if she might decide to exit at any moment.
