An ecstatic Oprah Winfrey has said that her no-holds-barred interview with comeback queen Whitney Houston has been "the best interview I''ve ever done".
The ‘I Will Always Love You’ superstar is set to return to the limelight with her first album in six years, after battling an alleged drug problem and going through a divorce from Bobbie Brown.
And for the promotions of her new album ‘I Turn To You’, the crooner gave the chat show queen the exclusive comeback interview for the new season of her hit talkshow.
And apparently the session has panned out so well that Winfrey has claimed that her sit-down talk with Houston is the most significant "connection" she''s ever had with a guest.
"I think it''s the best interview I''ve ever done. But I guess you''re supposed to let other people say that about yourself. I can''t think of a moment, ever, when I had a stronger connection to the person I was interviewing,” the Daily Express quoted Winfrey as saying in a statement to Access Hollywood.
"My approach to this interview was to not be judgemental in any way, and not to go in trying to get her to say things to make a ''moment''. I just wanted to be able to have an honest conversation with her. One woman to another woman. And the day of the interview I literally prayed about that all day long. I just wanted a connection between the two of us. And that is what happened,” he added
The interview will be aired in the US on September 14.
