One month after the death of her mother, Bobbi Kristina Brown sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a revealing chat on the latter's network Sunday night.

After greeting the host with a hug, the 19-year old told viewers she was "doing okay," adding: "I'm getting through it. I'm doing as good as I possibly can... just trying to keep going."

Oprah and Bobbi

Bobbi, of course, has been the subject of many rumors and headlines since her mom passed away on February 12, with drug problems allegedly surfacing again and family members supposedly pushing her to check in to rehab.

But the teenager said she's doing her best to hang in there, and that she receives help on a daily basis from her mom.

"I can hear her voice in spirit talking to me, 'Keep talking to me. I got you.' She's always with me," Bobbi said. "I can always feel her. I can always feel her with me. She always asked me, 'Do you need me?' And I caught myself, out of nowhere, I didn't even know I said it, I said, 'I'll always need you.'"

Ray J still keeps a photo of Whitney Houston in his phone. He says the image is helping him cope these days.

"It's just such a tough time for me," during the Brotherhood Crusade/Mothers in Action press conference yesterday. "I've been through a lot in these past few weeks. I'm able to look at life in a whole different way. I always look at my phone because I got a picture of somebody I really love and it helps me through the day."

Sad Ray J

Ray J - trying to shed his reputation as the guy who filmed himself having sex with Kim Kardashian - is giving back through the Brother Crusade. He's donated school supplies, including Beats by Dr. Dre Headphones, clothes, backpacks and notebooks via the organization.

But times remain trying for the man who was dating Whitney before she died on February 12.

"I'm really emotional right now and I really don't know what to say," he told reporters. "But I will say I love and hurt. I enjoy being around people that support me and give me a sense of peace. That's what these kids mean to me and what the Brotherhood Crusade does for me.

"The most important thing of all is that God is talking to me. God is talking to me right now, and now is the time to listen. My ears are open."

This Sunday, Oprah Winfrey will sit down with members of Whitney Houston's family, including her sister Patricia and her daughter Bobbi Kristina.

Did the late singer's sibling see any signs that her loved one was headed down such a destructive path? That she would pass away at such an early age? Yes and no.

"The handwriting was kind of on the wall," Patricia tells Oprah in one of the following videos. "I would be kidding myself to say otherwise."

However, she added that Whitney's life appeared to be headed in a positive direction. Finally.

"Things were changing, things were really changing with her, very much so," Patricia said. "It wasn't about the substance abuse or anything like that relative to the latter days or anything like that, I think it was more of lifestyle.

"I saw her chasing a dream, looking for love in all the wrong places."

Skylar Laine says she's actually never sung a Whitney Houston song before.

With "Where Do Broken Hearts Go," she may have done the late icon justice.

To be sure, Skylar Laineis no Whitney Houston ... or even Jessica Sanchez.

However, American Idol often rewards the underdog who strays out of his or her genre and picks up unfamiliar or challenging material quickly.

She doesn't sound like Whitney, but Skylar is who she is, and that's formidable - a country girl who has proved she can sing anything. Take a listen:

Jessica Sanchez sang Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" on American Idol this week, and with it, may have established herself as the Season 11 frontrunner.

Seriously. If Jessica Sanchez wasn't in your Top 5 heading into Wednesday night, she is now. It was awesome, in one word. Don't believe us? Take it from the panel:

Jennifer Lopez: [at a loss for words] "Just, just amazing."

Randy Jackson: "This is one of the hardest songs to sing."

Steven Tyler: "You may be The One. You just made 40 million people cry."

LOL. Try 20 million at best, Steve ... which is no small feat of course. In any case, listen to the nearly flawless performance and try to hold back the tears below ...

Whitney Houston may have died unexpectedly on February 11, but the singer at least had the good fortune to plan ahead.

In a 19-page document obtained by Inside Edition, it's revealed that Whitney left absolutely everything to her teenage daughter. This includes personal wealth, furniture, clothing jewelry and cars.

The money will be placed in a trust - with Whitney's mother, Cissy, serving as executor - until Bobbi Kristina, who turned 19 on March 4, is 21 years old. She then gets more cash when she turns 25 and the rest when she's 30.

Houston initially drafted the will in 1993, but amended it to the current version in April 2000.

Bobbi Kristina, meanwhile, will sit down with Oprah Winfrey for her first interview since her mom's passing this Sunday evening on OWN.

There is no evidence that any foul play was at work in the death of Whitney Houston.

But that did not stop Nancy Grace from speculating about whether someone played a role in her passing, and a new report claims it isn't stopping unidentified callers from pressing the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office from opening up a murder investigation.

Whitney on Stage

Sources tell TMZ that several individuals - alleging to be relatives of either Houston or Bobby Brown - have contacted the office under the belief that the artist was murdered. One even claimed to possess evidence that proved this theory, while another blamed a fellow relative for the homicide.

There's been no verification of identities and still no proof exists that points to anything but an overdose on pain medication and alcohol. The official cause of death will be determined when toxicology results are in.

The National Enquirer is not the only tabloid that won't let Whitney Houston rest in peace.

According to The London Sun, the late singer carried on an affair with Jermaine Jackson - while the latter was married - in the early 1980s. The newspaper, which does not cite a single source, even claims Whitney's hit single "Saving All My Love for You" was based on her secret romance with MJ's brother.

A few stolen moments is all that we share/You've got your family and they need you there. Though I've tried to resist being last on your list/But no other man's gonna do/So I'm saving all my love for you, Houston croons on that track.

The tabloid goes on to say that Michael Jackson was aware of the relationship and did not approve. It also says Jermaine was so broken up over Houston's death that he could not attend her funeral.

Late last month, Jermaine offered a few words of wisdom to Whitney's daughter, Bobbi Kristina.

She may no longer host her a daytime talk show, but Oprah Winfrey still has serious sway.

The Associated Press confirms that she has landed the first interview with members of Whitney Houston's family since the singer's tragic death last month, as Oprah will sit down with loved ones that include:

Whitney‘s sister-in-law/manager, Patricia Houston; her brother Gary; and her daughter Bobbi Kristina, who many fear is headed down a similar, drug-laden path as her mother.

The Big O, Goodbye

Oprah attended Whitney's funeral in New Jersey and no official cause of death has been determined yet. Autopsy results should be in within a week or two.

The interview, meanwhile, will air on OWN Sunday, March 11 at 9 p.m.

Oops! Target's bad!

The company has issued a statement and taken steps to rectify an embarrassing situation that stems from a greeting card (below) that's been sitting on its shelves for the past few months and which reads:

Next time you think of dating the bad boy, consider Whitney Houston.

Whitney Houston Card

"The card was in our stores prior to Ms. Houston’s death. As soon as this was brought to our attention, we began the process of removing the card from all applicable stores," the chain told TMZ in response to the controversy.

Somewhere, Bobby Brown is stewing that this card even exists - and then thinking of a way to profit himself off it.

Is this the right move? Should Target take away the cards?
