Thank God for DVR! There was so much on television last night that it was definitely hard to make a decision as to what to watch. Between Magic Johnson's 'The Announcement' and 'The Good Wife', I knew my Sunday was going to be jam packed. But there was one thing that trumped both of these shows for me. It was the Oprah interview with the Houston family following the death of musical icon Whitney Houston.

Normally, I don't like to watch shows in real time anymore. I guess you can say the DVR has spoiled me because I hate commercials, but this was one thing I watched from the moment it came on. It was definitely must-see television. I mean let's be honest, no one does an interview like Oprah.

I definitely have my thoughts about the interview. I was really hoping to get more insight into the person that was Nippy Houston. For the most part, we know about Whitney Houston but I was hoping to learn about Nippy. Bobbi Kris alluded to her a few times when she talked about her as a mother, but yet they never really gave up anything insightful about the woman and her generous spirit. Maybe it's just the fan in me that is selfish and wants more. I was really hoping to hear about her humanity. I mean even when her brother was asked about what he was missed about his sister he said he missed touring with her and watching her sing. I was just hoping for more.

So did you watch the interview? What did you think?
