In the special, Winfrey speaks with those closest to the legendary singer, as Bobbi Kristina shares personal memories of her mom and how she would like the iconic superstar to be remembered. The family also addresses the rumors and speculation surrounding Houston's death.
Preceding the all-new Oprah's Next Chapter, "Remembering Whitney: The Oprah Interview" will re-air March 11 (7:00 – 9:00 p.m. ET/PT), featuring Whitney Houston's last in-depth television interview from "The Oprah Winfrey Show" as Winfrey reflects on her personal memories of the superstar.
Additional original Oprah's Next Chapter episodes airing in March include Lady Gaga (March 18) and Gloria Steinem (March 25).
OPRAH'S NEXT CHAPTER Lady Gaga – Sunday, March 18 (9:00 – 11:00 p.m.) Oprah Winfrey travels to New York City to give the world its first look inside the apartment Lady Gaga grew up in and still calls home. And for the first time ever Gaga's mother, Cynthia, breaks her silence on what it's like to be the mom of the most famous and controversial pop star on the planet. Notoriously tight-lipped about her personal life, Lady Gaga also opens up about love, marriage and children. Oprah, Lady Gaga and Cynthia also meet up at Harvard University in Cambridge to help launch the project Lady Gaga says is the most important work of her life.
OPRAH'S NEXT CHAPTER Gloria Steinem – Sunday, March 25 (9:00 – 10:00 p.m.) Oprah and legendary feminist/activist Gloria Steinem sit down with 60 outspoken students at Barnard College—the most selective women's college in the U.S.—for a dynamic, provocative and no-holds barred conversation. Gloria, Oprah and the students talk about everything from on-campus vending machines selling the "morning after" pill to what sexual empowerment looks like today. Then, Oprah visits Gloria at her bohemian New York City brownstone for an in-depth, one-on-one conversation. Gloria reveals her tough childhood, becoming her mother's caregiver at age 10, marrying at age 66 and the most painful regret of her life.
