Rumor Has It: Oprah Offers Bobbi Kristina $1 Million Dollar Job?
Oprah will be the first to interview Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina, well now we’ve learned she may have offered Bobbi Kristina a job at her network OWN. The $1 million dollar job offer comes with strings. We’re told Bobbi Kristina can “earn the money over time if she stays off drugs and focuses on hard work,” a personal close to the family told The Enquirer.
The source says after Whitney’s funeral service, Cissy Houston, Whitney’s mom, begged Oprah to ‘watch over’ her granddaughter because there’s ‘no one else I can trust.’
Cissy said her grandbaby Krissi needed someone to look up to because her life is spiraling out of control. Cissy said she ‘feared’ what might happen to Bobbi Kristina once she returned to live in Georgia with no one to watch over her and she urged Oprah to give the teen a fresh start in California at her OWN television network.
When Cissy asked Oprah for help, she couldn’t resist. “Oprah was one of the first people invited to Whitney’s funeral because Cissy knows how much she meant to Whitney. Afterward, Cissy and Oprah hugged and talked through their tears. Cissy said they could not save Whitney, but there’s a chance to save Krissi. Choking back tears, Oprah said she would do whatever she could to help save Bobbi Kristina , and help her refocus her life by looking toward a promising career.”
True to her word, the media titan has told Bobbi Kristina that she will teach her all about television. Apparently, this $1 million job offer and Oprah’s promise to Cissy is the “secret” behind her interview with Bobbi Kris — which airs this Sunday, March 11 on OWN.
