Usually I don’t add any commentary with the sat’day riddymz post. Usually I don’t watch the Oprah Winfrey show either. However, my wife convinced me to watch the Oprah interview with Whitney Houston and I must say that I was captivated as I watched. Although I was never a big Whitney fan and never got caught up in following the drama of her and Bobby Brown, I was impressed by her honesty as she discussed the details of her ordeal. What I found most interesting was that despite Oprah’s best efforts, Whitney never blamed nor demonized Bobby, she took responsibility for her decisions and behaviour and stated that she had “no regrets” of how her life had gone. In fact she commented that all she went through… the good, the bad and the ugly… it all had made her a stronger and better person and mother. 

Her performance of the song below was truly inspirational.
