New Reality Show: Meet the Jacksons

Posted: 05:09 PM ET


The A&E network has confirmed that the Jackson family reality special will be expanded into a full series that will reportedly feature some footage of late family icon Michael Jackson. According to an Associated Press report, A&E confirmed that what was once intended as a one-hour special focusing on the other members of the family will now be a full series that will show the Jacksons dealing with the fallout from Michael's death.

A spokesperson for A&E could not be reached for comment at press time, but the network had previously confirmed for MTV News that the one-hour special focusing on brothers Marlon, Jermaine, Jackie and Tito as they prepare for a reunion tour was scheduled for air within the next few months and that, depending on ratings, it could turn into a series.

The AP reported that filming on the special wrapped in June, shortly before Jackson's death on June 25, and that the self-proclaimed King of Pop did not participate in the production. In a clip aired on Tuesday night on "Entertainment Tonight," family matriarch Katherine Jackson was shown at home relaxing with Jermaine, Jackie and Tito. But despite previous comments to the contrary from A&E, a correspondent for the "ET" said the Jackson program would feature the "entire Jackson clan," hinting that "sources tell us that Michael also participated in the filming."

Can't wait to see it!

wish them best for their new series but first they should get the investigation done of MJ death ......


Lora Ottawa Canada   August 27th, 2009 5:21 pm ET

Terri posted on other blog that she read or heard it could take months to place charges! what the hell is that?

RFergy   August 27th, 2009 5:26 pm ET

I hope this series puts the Jacksons in a good light!!!!

carol kesling   August 27th, 2009 5:28 pm ET

i will be anxious to see if m. j. was part of this....something tells me he didnt !!!! if not there had to be a reason,michael was a very gentle soul but i dont think he would have done it seeing he was working on a come back tour !!!! that would have taken all of his time.

Lora Ottawa Canada   August 27th, 2009 5:34 pm ET


I know, we cant believe everything that is posted out there!

Janice   August 27th, 2009 5:42 pm ET

I'm looking forward to seeing this show about the brothers.

Brigida, Italy   August 27th, 2009 6:01 pm ET

self-proclaimed King of Pop ...

sounds again very negative ๐Ÿ™
Would you – the media – PLEASE come down and say/write something good of Michael? I still miss a show where all his good sides are shown.

Lori   August 27th, 2009 6:01 pm ET

While I am interested in this show and the Jackson Family, it will be absent the heart and soul of the family. Michael is, without a doubt, "Gone to Soon".

Mila   August 27th, 2009 6:04 pm ET

Why do they keep calling Michael "the self-proclaimed" King of Pop ?
He didn't self-proclaim himself that – Elizabeth Taylor used it for the first time and yes he totally deserved it.

Lori   August 27th, 2009 6:05 pm ET

TMZ is reporting tha heroin was found in Michael's bedroom

Lori   August 27th, 2009 6:17 pm ET

UPDATE: A source connected with the case tells TMZ the "tar heroin" was tested - and the results showed it was not heroin of any kind. This is not reflected in the warrant.

Maureen (UK)   August 27th, 2009 6:24 pm ET

Michael Jackson has been proclaimed; The Best Entertainer of all Time, A Musical Legend, A Genius, A Pop Icon and the King of Pop, to name only some of the titles endorsed by the most distinguished people in the music industry.

To refer to Michael Jackson as the self-proclaimed king of pop really ignorant.

Lori   August 27th, 2009 6:26 pm ET

The public and fans have proclaimed him! He is the the King.

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 6:27 pm ET

Hi Everyone: Hi Lori.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Boy, the "pickin's are getting slim".... Can't believe TMZ... the media are really wanting us to start creating another story line here... Could MJ have been doing heroin? What a crock...

I know that Jermaine is supposed to make an announcement this weekend about the "Vienna" tribute... I wish the family would make some of the "details" of what they know public... I honestly think it would stop some of the "trash talk" that is happening and is being picked up by the tabloids.... I am going to step away for awhile and feed the family, but I was just in shock over the heroin headline... that doesn't sound like the MJ that employed a nutritionist and was trying to eat organic to stay healthy....

Maureen (UK)   August 27th, 2009 6:30 pm ET

Yes it was just a diversion to get more interest on their web site.

Lora Ottawa Canada   August 27th, 2009 6:34 pm ET

MJ explained in an interview that he did not call himself the King of was L. Taylor.....I think it was the interview with Oprah!

Mila   August 27th, 2009 6:38 pm ET

Guys, assuming that TMZ is quoting the affidavit correctly it's actually the Jackson family who's started the heroin story by telling this to the police.
Another LaToya nonsense I would guess.

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 6:43 pm ET

Hi Maureen (UK): I know you're right, they all ready retracted the original statement and said it wasn't heroin. I wish the Jackson family spokesperson, Ken Sunshine (or whatever his name is) would give the MJ fans at least some of the details of what is really going on... I know, there is an ongoing investigation, but geez.... Why don't they hire a private investigator to do some searching around? I will be back in a little while.

Mila   August 27th, 2009 7:00 pm ET

Do you know if any MJ songs/albums are owned entirely by Michael?
Do all the profits from Thriller go to his estate?

deedee bigley   August 27th, 2009 7:01 pm ET

the jacksons should show more consideration and appreciation to the fans who have made them rich & famous. michael deserves better also,what a slap in the face.he belongs at neverland or build another graceland for him & his fans.we can't pay our respect to him because their laying him to rest at forest lawn.I, for one will not purchase anymore merchandise, all credit card orders have been canceled, i won't help to line their pockets.they are greedy, arrogant, & jeolous, all they cared about was michael's money & what he could do for really angers me that no one, not one of the jacksons did anything to help michael, he was on the drugs for some reason, he should of been in the hospital.jermaine was the only one i heard once or twice defend michael, then stabs him in the back with the book & the song he wrote, & latoya, i'm glad she's not my sister, she's another two-faced , jeolous, back stabber. no one would say the things being said, about my son or brother if i was a jackson. why was michael on the drugs? was there something wrong, an illness,or did he need the drugs to get over the pain of what was said & done to him?the poor guy really is in a better place, he won't have to deal with all the crap anymore. i think about his children now, they'll never see another birthday or christmas like they did with their dad.& god help them if they end up with rowe, what was michael thinking? another one in it for the money. cha-ching,cha-ching! michael will be truly& sadly be missed, i was looking forward to seeing him in london.JACKSONS, THINK ABOUT WHO PUT YOU WHERE YOUR AT YOUR SON & HIS FANS, SHOW HIM & US THE RESPECT WE DESERVE ! IT'S HIS MONEY!

I have purchased 5 cd's so far this week and they all have SONY label on them???

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 7:26 pm ET

I have had some questions for as long as this has been going on:
Why was there no statement from UCLA Medical Center instead of just from Jermaine?
Dr. Murray was at the hospital with MJ, why did he refuse to sign the death certificate? If whoever signed the death certificate (looks like the name is redacted on the online document) knew that MJ died earlier why did they put in the wrong time of death?
In my opinion the "ambulance" photo has got to be from the 90's that didn't look like MJ in 2009.
I don't want to believe that this could be just a "publicity stunt gone wrong" as TI has said on these blogs, but there are just too many pieces of this puzzle that don't add up. IMO.
And then too boot, to leave MJ for over two months without a burial? What is that all about? I don't know, it just is frustrating not to really "know" something for certain.... Just my ramblings....

carol kesling   August 27th, 2009 7:27 pm ET

@deedee, truer words have never been spoken, i do not want to see him at neverland because he did not want to return there... but they are a GREEDY,GREEDY, bunch... loved hearing jermaine & his wife are shopping for a 15 million dollar mansion as soon as he gets his share of the movie footage... i miss him terribly & still cry when i think of all the crap he went through... rest in peace dear angel, you trully deserve it ...

Laura   August 27th, 2009 7:42 pm ET

Right on, deedee!

Mila   August 27th, 2009 7:58 pm ET

My question was related to the fact that Michael owns his Thriller catalogue – what does this mean exactly ?
Just trying to find something I can buy without enriching Sony

Canadian-Sandy   August 27th, 2009 8:02 pm ET

Good evening Ladies.

What's new??

beth   August 27th, 2009 8:10 pm ET

I can't believe Katherine Jackson would have anything to do with this- It seems unnatural.

brooke   August 27th, 2009 8:13 pm ET

I...we all are going to miss Michael, ever since the pass of the king of pop it's like he just touched my heart and i can't seem to get hi out my head. Micheal will be forever with us. I prey for his children, esspecially Paris Jackson, I know that she is deeply missing her father. I just wanted to say...Michael just rest in peace...just rest in we are going to miss him a lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

RFergy   August 27th, 2009 8:14 pm ET

Owning a catologue means that all royalties for using the songs are paid to you.

Farewell   August 27th, 2009 8:17 pm ET

@Deedee Bigley, Very well said! I agre with 1000% . I am here listening to Michael's songs and I can't still believe what my eyes are reading and my ears are hearing . No wonder Michael was unhappy for almost all of his life.,This family is completly out of touch with Michael's fans what are they thinking!! First, was the annoucement to the tribute in Vienna , that by the way it looks more like Jermaine's face. I bought 2 tickets , but now I am having my doughts in going , because there are ways to honor Michael's life and wishes and I don't have to go to Austria to do something for him I can do it here in the US.
And now this reality show, who's reality theirs? They don't care about Michael it sms to me they were waiting like vultures for this to happen, so now they can live his shadow,because is where they always were and say look at us! I don't care for them I never did! And if Michael had a drug problem that wa not new to them and they did nothing to intevene ! Because, I don't believe they could get to him, reach out to him! When he was in Las Vegas at the rental house , he was around town in a wheel chair , he couldn't even walk and I don't believe he was faking . If he was using all this medications is because he was addicted for many years and that's why he could sleep anymore, but he was trying to come back and he gave all he had of himself until the end and I am proud of him whatever happens, regardless what the Coroner's and LAPD can proove is to late anyway and to me it doesn't anymore ( The LADP HATED MICHAEL, THEY WERE TRYING TO FRAME HIM IN 1993 AND 2005 THE SANTA BARBARA COUNTY POLICE AN EVERYBODY ELSE) I AM SICK OF THIS PEOPLE. I HOPE THEY ALL BURN IN HELL TOGETHER WITH THE TABLOIDS AND MOST OF THE MEDIA. AND SONY EPIC, DOCTORS ALL OF THEM KLEIN, MURRAY AND ETC...... Well, that's all for now! Thank you!

Mila   August 27th, 2009 8:22 pm ET

A while ago there was a story on TMZ saying that A&E offered the Jacksons $25 million for this series if they let them interview MJ's children.
Doesn't smell right to me

unknown   August 27th, 2009 8:25 pm ET

Gloria I said the same thing about the photo of suppose to be Michael it did look like Michael in the 80's I wonder what's up with that did Michael really die or what.

unknown   August 27th, 2009 8:26 pm ET

But then again Gloria I was looking at some old photo's of Michael and the picture of him in that glass tube looked just like Michael in the ambulance if it was really him.

katiee   August 27th, 2009 8:32 pm ET

Did anyone else notice a white gloved hand sticking out from under the sheet when they showed him on the stretcher? And who was there to take the pictures?

Diane in Minneapolis   August 27th, 2009 8:34 pm ET

I don't know how successful this show will be – unless his 3 kids are in it....and I hope they're not. It doesn't appeal so much to me but that's my opinion. Seems like they are trying to pick up where MJ left off and ride coattails or something.

Maria   August 27th, 2009 8:39 pm ET

Mila –
Sony still has the right to make money of all that falls under the Thriller catalogue: released and unreleased tracks from that period and the new tracks recorded for the Thriller 25 (that's why Thriller 25 was issued by Sony BMG's Legacy label).
The contract that gives Sony this right is due to expire at the end of 2011. Then the licenses to the masters of the Sony/Epic/Legacy albums will revert to the MJ's estate and the profits can go to the estate, if there will be an independent label owned by the estate, or can be shared with other labels which will bid for the right to release the MJ material.

I also found this – it's an AP story from July:
Steve Gordon, an entertainment lawyer and author of โ€œThe Future of the Music Business,โ€ worked at Sony Music during the 1990s. He said he was at Sony when Jacksonโ€™s last contract was negotiated, though he acknowledged it could have recently been updated.
Gordon said Jackson owned some of his master recordings, while others are owned in partnership with Sony. Regardless, he said, Sony retains exclusive distribution rights for anything Jackson produced during the term of their contract.
Gordon said he expected Sonyโ€™s Legacy Recordings division to do something similar to what it did with Elvis and create a division purely for Jacksonโ€™s catalog.
โ€œTheyโ€™ve done every kind of configuration to try to squeeze more money out of the catalog with Elvis and theyโ€™ll do it with Michael Jackson โ€” be sure of it,โ€ Gordon said. โ€œI imagine that thereโ€™s a ... load of concert recordings that may or may not have been released.โ€

Lori   August 27th, 2009 8:39 pm ET

I think it is horrible that people are hating on Michael's family. He loved them. He forgave them. He would not want his fans hating and lying on his family. He trusted his mother to raise his children. We don't know anything that went on and we still don't even know the true circumstances of his death. But I really think everyone needs to back up off the Jackson family.

Lori   August 27th, 2009 8:42 pm ET

Gloria– they don't need to hire a "private investigator" they have all of us bloggers and we are all joining Gene's Columbo Agency for tying up loose ends. I am sure between us all that we will get the job done. ๐Ÿ™‚

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 8:43 pm ET

Hi Diane ๐Ÿ™‚ and all bloggers on tonight: I just wish the Jacksons would make some kind of official statement. Are they trying to do some type of memorial that the public can visit, like Graceland? IMO it is plain wrong to lock MJ away from his fans forever... I mean I would go to Gary Indiana if that's where they decided that a memorial would be built...
I don't know what to believe anymore.... I just wish some of the questions would have some type of answers soon....

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 8:46 pm ET

Hi Lori ๐Ÿ™‚ Its just so hard to wait patiently.... time passes and still no official answers ... its frustrating...

And, IMO, if it were my family member, I would want to know that they had a proper burial asap... not wait over two months because of their "scheduling conflicts"... for that, I am angry with them... MJ deserves better....

Lori   August 27th, 2009 8:51 pm ET

Maybe they already had a "proper burial" we just do not know do we.

Gene   August 27th, 2009 8:55 pm ET

I am to laugheing right now roll onto floors agian. I am seeing what lori is writeing about my scool. NO. not to be my scool. every body scool from here. evenn to bug but bug haveing to be sit into conrer with thiese point cap onto hes head with tapes onto hes mouths.--you be to lookeing at edewar kennedy plan how 2 day family and US makeing nice for thiese show lay onto reposes and many peoples pass by onto him, why not they are doing thiese same for MJ. I am sorry to haveing sayeing thiese. some MJ family not to thinkeing about him only for thiese moenys not esuses for to waiteing to bury MJ. I am still to think MJ bury oter place.

Lori   August 27th, 2009 8:59 pm ET

I probablly shouldn't post this. but....

maybe the family member the Jackson's are having "scheduling conflicts" with, is Michael. Maybe The Informer could shine a spotlight on the matter for us. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lori   August 27th, 2009 9:01 pm ET

Yes Gene. Hopefully there is a lot of duct tape to seal his mouth shut!

Jacquelyn   August 27th, 2009 9:02 pm ET

What you all fail to realize the family still needs to support themselves. Michael left his mother with 3 kids to raise, and I am sure the family is helping them. Just because Michael left them something in the Will does not mean anything. So if they want to make their money, so be it. Attack them all you want too, your thoughts do not affect this family whatsoever. And those saying you wont watch. Yes you will, just out of curiosity alone.

Lori   August 27th, 2009 9:03 pm ET

Evening, Jacquelyn ๐Ÿ™‚

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 9:05 pm ET

Gene ๐Ÿ™‚ I think you are so right on... I think they will end up taking him to Vegas - JMO - MJ was looking at the house there they were calling "Wonderland" and the family was there this past weekend.. could be they are trying to strike up some deals? I don't know, just food for thought.
Hi Lori ๐Ÿ™‚ I don't think the real TI is coming back ... I wish that s/he would, but I think they planned out their "exit strategy".. and carried it out... (I know someone else posted that thought before)....

Jessica   August 27th, 2009 9:05 pm ET

@Carol-where did you read that Jermaine is buying a 15 mill.$ mansion. Maybe we should stop supporting this family. I really only care about Michael's kids–so when I buy CD's I like to think I'm helping them.Also, I like to show the world how amazing his music and he was, but increasing his album sales.

Mila   August 27th, 2009 9:05 pm ET

I agree with you that hating MJ's family is not the right thing to do but I have to admit that I also was disappointed by their decision to bury Michael in such a private place that no fan would ever manage to reach him.
There is something very comforting in being able to place flowers on the grave of a person you loved and just stay there for a while hoping they could hear your thoughts.
I understand there are security concerns about placing him in a place open to public but considering the regular profits such a place would have been drawing I don't think expensive security would not have been able to provide for.

If I was to make some of those decisions I would have bought that house in Las Vegas which Michael wanted to live in, call it Wonderland just like he planned, bury him there, buy back all the amusemens park equipment that he had in Neverland and make the place a shrine and museum of his legacy.

Fans can visit whenever they want, children can play in the amusement park and give joy to his spirit with their laughter, and when the family wants to visit in private they could easily close the section with his tombstone.

And some of the profit could go to charity that carries his name.

Lynn   August 27th, 2009 9:05 pm ET

Hello Everybody! ๐Ÿ™‚

I just went on TMZ for the 1st time today. Heroin?? If it wasn't Herioin then why is it even being mentioned?? Just to put it out there and make MJ look a little bit worse? Marijuana what!!?? Was it a plant? Why is this just now coming out??

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 9:07 pm ET

Hi Jacquelyn ๐Ÿ™‚ I am hardly ever on when you are anymore....

Lori   August 27th, 2009 9:09 pm ET

@Lynn - it does make one wonder. It does seem a little bit odd. Maybe all the medications were planted.

Jacquelyn   August 27th, 2009 9:10 pm ET

Hi Gloria ๐Ÿ™‚ I know.

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

Well said Mila... at least the fans could go and pay their respects and listen to the wonderful musical and dance contributions he gave to this world together and talk to one another about MJ... I don't know what I'm saying a place to congregate together in his memory, you know what I mean?
I don't have anything against the "family" .... I am just being selfish, as a fan!!!!

Lynn   August 27th, 2009 9:11 pm ET


I think that Wonderland Idea is a really good one too. I thought that a while back when I saw something on TV about Mj looking a that house and wanting it.

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

Oh please.... TMZ retracted that statement about heroin within an hour of that ridiculous post.... they are just looking to boost their number of bloggers.... don't trust any of the media, they are in a "feeding frenzy" for ratings....

Mila   August 27th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

BTW, there was an article today on TMZ saying that the security for the funeral will cost 3 times the original price because it's now on a weekday.

I have 2 things to say about that:

1) Shame on L.A. for asking this family to pay $150K themselves. Like I said in a previous post Michael must have paid billions of dollars in taxes to this state and gotten nothing of it so far. The city and state should pay for security of his funeral at least.

2) I wonder if the funeral will be postponed one more time to have it on a weekend again.

Gene   August 27th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

Answer to gloria. I am to thinkeing MJ needeing to be final rest. not traveleing anymore.-----I am to readeing what sayeing in here about thiese tar hereon and cigarte. no. now TMZ going far onto over tops. some time you not to beleifs everythings what is to writeing about MJ.---–maybe MJ mother going to moveing to Las Vegas but I am not thinkeing so not possble. she kowing her home areas for many year haveing freinds. ----yes I am readeing germain he bouy to thiese 15 millon home into florida. I donot kow why. he alway to lives with hes mother.

Luda   August 27th, 2009 9:13 pm ET

The reality show we're in it right now... his death.

He is dead.

Lori   August 27th, 2009 9:15 pm ET

@Gloria: TMZ was not the source of that information about the heroin. They were quoting what was stated in a search warrant affidavit that just became unsealed. So it was a member of law enforcement that made that statement.

Lynn   August 27th, 2009 9:16 pm ET


They certainly had enough time to pretty much do whatever they wanted there.

Luda   August 27th, 2009 9:17 pm ET

feature the โ€œentire Jackson clan,โ€ hinting that โ€œsources tell us that Michael also participated in the filming.โ€

That's why they don't bury him.... LOL

Lori   August 27th, 2009 9:18 pm ET

Hey, Luda ๐Ÿ™‚ But his music will live forever ๐Ÿ™‚

Lori   August 27th, 2009 9:19 pm ET

Lynn, my thoughts exactly. They and who knows who else.

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 9:19 pm ET

Hi Luda ๐Ÿ™‚
I do think Mila's idea is a good one for all concerned. It would generate revenue for the family and MJ's children and it would give the fans a place to go to show respect for MJ. Like Graceland does for Elvis. Nothing says the family has to have his burial site in Vegas, that would be up to them (of course), but you, as fans know that you will want to have a place that shows honor to MJ to take your kids and grand-kids. He made history folks.... do we really not want to have a pseudo-shine in his honor.... He changed music as we knew it growing up, FOREVER.... he deserves a fitting memorial site for his fans. JMO

Luda   August 27th, 2009 9:20 pm ET


Heroin is part of the thriller???

It seems they gave him everything they could find.... no surprise he is dead.

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

As journalists, they should check their sources before they sully MJ's name... I'm sorry but whomever took that at face value, should be shot. It ended up not being heroin at all. And, there were so many people in and out of that house, why would TMZ assume it was MJ's and not the movers or one of the staff's stash?

Lori   August 27th, 2009 9:22 pm ET

Gloria, maybe they will do something in the future. Maybe they are waiting for the memorabilia to get back from its tour. Who knows, maybe something will happen in October, or December.

Jacqueline   August 27th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

I agree completely with you Mila

Mila   August 27th, 2009 9:24 pm ET

I would have also liked the Jackson family to finally come together and make a proper statement for the fans in terms of tributes planned, suggestions for ways fans can honor Michael like charities that he supported or that they will support on his behalf and as someone else suggested above summarize for us the information that they have so far and know for sure.

I'm just tired of different members of the family coming forward every now and then making statements that either make no sense (like LaToya and Joe) or that get denied by others later (like Jermaine's), everyone making tributes of their own.

I would have liked to do something for his birthday like donate some moeny to Heal The World Foundation but I don't even know if this foundation is still legitimate because they are rumors that it has nothing to do with MJ or the causes he supported any more.

They could have identified one song of his (e.g. Heal The World, We're The World or maybe something personal to him like Childhood) that we can all buy as a tribute to him for 29th and have the money donated to charity.

There's so much enthusiasm from the fans and no outreach from the family at all.

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

Hi Loir ๐Ÿ™‚
I hope they do. To me, he was the greatest performer of my lifetime... I sure would visit any memorial site the family decided upon.

Lori   August 27th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

Gloria - TMZ did not "assume anything" they were reporting the sworn statement of the officer in the search warrant affidavit. So it looks like the incorrect facts were on the part of the LA PD.

Canadian-Sandy   August 27th, 2009 9:27 pm ET

Hi Ladies.

I heard you were here.

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 9:27 pm ET

Sorry LORI... typing too fast... Gloria

Luda   August 27th, 2009 9:27 pm ET

Hi Lori!
Hi Gloria!


Mila   August 27th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

LARRY, CAN YOU HELP US convey some of these ideas to the family !

Can we forget everything else for a while and unite for a good cause on Michael's birthday at least – al lof us – fans, media, family ?

angelswings   August 27th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

hi every one lol I cant keep up is this the blog every one is staying ???????????

Lynn   August 27th, 2009 9:30 pm ET

Just the word "Herion" being out there now will still do damage even though it wasn't herion. Sometimes thats all it takes to get the rumors going..... and going......amd going!

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 9:31 pm ET

Lori: I have said this before, maybe the LAPD needs a real "police force" to come in and clean up their mess... They seem to botch every investigation regarding celebrites that they get involved with... I still stand by my original comment... true journalists "check the sources" they are receiving information from.... they have a duty to the public to report the truth (who am I kidding, in this day and age)..... just wound up tonight, excuse me....

Lori   August 27th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

Lynn - sadly it is so true.

Lynn   August 27th, 2009 9:33 pm ET

Hi Canadian -Sandy!

Canadian-Sandy   August 27th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

OK Guys this is just getting too much for me.

Rock with you.

Rock the Night away.

Lori   August 27th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Sorry, me to Gloria. I just wanted to make clear that it was law enforcement that made the sworn statment about the alleged heroin. I give kudos to TMZ for getting to the truth and finding out that the suspicious substance was not at all what law enforcement thought it was. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

I just want some positive news for a change and fun night of blogging.

Canadian-Sandy   August 27th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

Hey Lynn.

Does this get any crazier?????

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Hi Lynn ๐Ÿ™‚ and Angelwings ๐Ÿ™‚ .... AW: I couldn't stay on the other blog, way too slow... If you want to post your information, I am on here for another half an hour...
To Lynn: I totally agree with you... once that word is out there "drug addict" "heroin".... it doesn't matter that a retraction is published... people start thinking... and MJ would never have done that.... and that whoever made that statement, again, they should be shot... he was not a drug addict or heroin user... IMO

Lynn   August 27th, 2009 9:38 pm ET

I dont know?? Everytime i come on here or look at TMZ. its a new surprise! Just when you think you see and heard it all- BOOM,,,,,.. another bomb drops!! LOL

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

Lori: I am sorry too... I get so wound up when it comes to people
"trashing" MJ.... he has so much of that during his lifetime... it makes me want to be sick....I would just like to see a "fitting and lasting memorial site" for him... for people to go to and remember what a great contribution he made to our society....
Hi to Canadian Sandy ๐Ÿ™‚
I am not meaning to be nasty towards anyones opinions, I would just like MJ to have a place like Graceland .... he was bigger than Elvis and deserving of someplace like that for his fans to gather and remember... that's all I am saying....

Canadian-Sandy   August 27th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

OMG... I can't believe anything that's out there.

Live in the present.

Don't worry about what has happened or what may happen in the future.

Mila   August 27th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

I'm no fan of LAPD ever since they mishandled MJ but I don't think we can blame them for what was in the affidavit.

It's someone from the Jackson family (we know LaToya nd Janet were in MJ's house) who told them they found "tar heroin in a bag". It's their mistake that they didn't say it was a bag with white power or whatever.

LAPD mentioned this as one of the reasons to get a search warrant and I don't see anyhting wrong with that.

As for TMZ – I don't have a problem with them reporting what was in the search warrant affidavit as long as they clarify where the info came from – i.e. this is info before the search and may or may not have been confirmed by the search (in this case obviously didn't get confirmed).

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

To Jacquelyn: I have been very busy at work and with family lately, please give me your website again... I would love to check it out....
let me know....

Canadian-Sandy   August 27th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

OK Guys,

I need to call it a night.

Sorry but the Blogging is becoming too much for me.

Peace and Love.

Susan   August 27th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

Hi Mila:

The city, county, or state of California cannot pay for MJ's burial. If they did, it would create a presidence, which would be used in future court actions, for all people wanting the governing areas to pay. Also, it's that same old thing of taxpayers who would support their money to be allocated for MJ burial and others that would protest. By law, it roles back to the family. The family might decide to have the burial privately, secretly, and not keep telling the media. To me....why even tell the media when fans cannot attend to pay their respects.

That reality show was filmed prior to MJ's children living with Katherine. IMO, A&E is just putting out a hook that MJ will be in the show to get more ratings. If A&E were to go back now and try to film MJ's kids, the social worker, psych, & judge would terminate Katherines custody. Jacqueline....I agree....everyone will watch the reality show out of curiousity.

angelswings   August 27th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

good night Sandy

Barbara   August 27th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

I totally agree about your idea of donating to a charity that has been close to Michael's heart, on his birthday this Saturday. I certainly would if I knew of an official one.
I think that would be a very positive thing to do in light of all the negative articles and statements that have been tossed around about him.

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Since my undergraduate degree is in journalism, I am highly offended that TMZ didn't verify their sources information... in my day, that's the way it was done. Search warrants can and do make claims that are not all together true. And, additionally, if the family was the source of this information, they have been in that house taking things out right after MJ's death... along with others who had access, why is this information coming out now? They shouldn't have access at this point, it's a crime scene.... just a thought....

Lori   August 27th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

Gloria - I think the search warrant affidavit was sealed until today.

Lynn   August 27th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

Night Sandy

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

Good night, Sandy, I am following your very shorly.

Thanks Lori for the updates on the search warrants.... keep blogging ..
Mila: put your ideas out there to Paris.... I think they're great...
I am bidding the boards adieu... hope to talk to you all tomorrow...
Gloria from Pittsburgh

Lynn   August 27th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

Bye Gloria

Gloria   August 27th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

Thanks Jacquelyn, I have been on before but didn't bookmark it.... I am going to check it out before I retire for the night.... hope to talk later.

Farewell   August 27th, 2009 10:01 pm ET

Are you kidding? The family wants the Police to be paid by the City of Glendale? Does anyone know the time of the burial I read it will be at 10:00AM but with them one never knows! You girls think that many fans will go there? I believe so!

Lynn   August 27th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

Did I hear somewhere that the early parts of this reality series was filmed before Michael died?

Lois   August 27th, 2009 10:09 pm ET

Good Evening ladies and Gene ๐Ÿ˜‰

Susan   August 27th, 2009 10:10 pm ET


No, the Jackson family does not want the City of Glendale to pay for the burial. Someone earlier in the blog suggested it would be a good and nice idea.

Lynn: Yes, the reality show was in the news prior to MJ's death. It was filmed last Spring with over 40 hours of footage. After MJ's passing, A&E want to film interview with MJ's kids and and family mourning thoughts, to add to their 40 hours of footage. There is suppose to be a 1 hour special of the mourning brothers, and possibily the reality show at a later time this year. Who's all for ratings.

Lois   August 27th, 2009 10:13 pm ET

Gloria – alot of procedural events with respect to the LAPD, the Coroner is just not right....why did the police go in two days later or even a day later. Now this story about heroin, give me a break...just another tabloid bs story.....what's next?

Heidi   August 27th, 2009 10:14 pm ET

Hi everyone!

Farewell   August 27th, 2009 10:14 pm ET

What about the time of the burial? Does anyone know ? It will be on Sep3rd but what about the time?

Lynn   August 27th, 2009 10:14 pm ET

Hi Lois ๐Ÿ™‚

Lois   August 27th, 2009 10:16 pm ET

Hi Heidi and Lynn

Not sure of the time of the burial on the 3rd....I will believe it when I see it Farewell. Nothing they have said has come to fruition so I guess we wait and see.

Gene   August 27th, 2009 10:16 pm ET

I am thinkeing now needeing so many thiese police heliocpter evertthings like thiese. if MJ family wanteig to move MJ into forrest lawns best to going to do thiese later onto the nights. they can to be do thiese things. no needeing for to pay so many moenys so big for everythins. see some body into family makeing so many thiese mistake. closeing mouths fisrt. bury onto MJ then waitieng few days then going to telleing every body onto tv. simple thiese plan.

angelswings   August 27th, 2009 10:17 pm ET

hi Heidi hi Lynn wow herin lol waht eles can they say about poor Michael LEAVE HIM ALONE

Lois   August 27th, 2009 10:19 pm ET

I suspect he is already buried, but maybe will have a service for the sake of people wanting to know what is going on.

tatiana   August 27th, 2009 10:20 pm ET

Hi everyone
I read will be at 7:00pm

Gene   August 27th, 2009 10:21 pm ET

His to hiedi. you are to big big stars here hiedie bloggy sayeing hiedi is same as to MJ. this was to be jokey last nights.----–no lori. police and coroner they do going to MJ home same days when he death. but they not to kow anything becuase dcotor not tell to the truths. then they haveing to waiteing for waarrant beacuse somebody to useing words murder and hopsital haveing thiese blood testeing show something not right but they are not to kowing what is it.

Lynn   August 27th, 2009 10:22 pm ET

Hi angelswings, hi Heidi ๐Ÿ™‚

angelswings   August 27th, 2009 10:23 pm ET

We will see what on Saturday but then again they say Sept 3 so we will see

Susan   August 27th, 2009 10:26 pm ET

Hi Heidi.......welcome back.

Hi Lois:

My guess is the police came 2 days later, after they talked with Murray on Saturday. MJ passed on Thursday. The police must have originally (Thurs) accepted that MJ passed from heart arrest. Friday, after they got the SUV, then Saturday after talking w/Murray, they may have concluded that foul play was involved. Meanwhile LaToya & brothers went to the house Thurs night (per LaToya), yet their rental van was there on Friday. I remember the van being filmed during day light hours.

Who can recognize heroin unless they have been around it? hummmm Also, why call police to turn in MJ for heroin? Makes me double think if the source was a family member or someone just pretending to be a family member. So many questions to this mystery.

Gene   August 27th, 2009 10:27 pm ET

Answer to farewell. I am readeing now time is to be 7:pm after cemetry to close. mabye to be best beacuse trafics on audubon for week days too much prolbems. forrest lawn canot to close for only 1 family in day time.

Lynn   August 27th, 2009 10:28 pm ET

Geeeeze–I guess the bedroom having the heat up to 90 wasn't a good enough clue huh? Even though its June in LA?? Maybe LAPD didn't know that at the time.

Lois   August 27th, 2009 10:30 pm ET

Susan – or as usual, the cops planted the drugs there. The cops always have a stash on drugs on hand in their cop shop for that purpose and also it is used for evidence in other cases, but once that evidence is not needed, they use it for their own resources.

Lynn   August 27th, 2009 10:32 pm ET


Everybody was coming and going as they please those first couple days. Anything is possible.

Lori   August 27th, 2009 10:33 pm ET

Regarding the burial – I belive in Mr. Sunshine's press release that it was going to be in the evening at 7pm on 3 Spetember.

Sheletta   August 27th, 2009 10:33 pm ET

Hey Everyone. Back feeling a little better. Just read this blog. Michael, did not want any part of this. I think it is a shame to still use his name to get ratings. Still the meal ticket even in passing. Michael, did not have much to do with family reunions like that. Everyone knew that. This was something that they where working up to get him to do it. How or why would they use footage of Michael? To get ratings so that the show will be successful. I'll check iot out it out but it's not the same without the real person.

angelswings   August 27th, 2009 10:35 pm ET

hi I keep losing every body lol Iam allso watching youtube...........michael jacksons media death hoax its very neet to see and michael talking and holding a sign SONY KILLS iam on part 4 now lol

Diane in Minneapolis   August 27th, 2009 10:35 pm ET

I would really like to see some kind of memorial building or display or something for MJ. He is the greatest entertainer of our time and he left too early. This would be up to the family, I know and I am not sure how Jehovahs believe regarding those types of things. They don't have to decide right away. They still have all this painful investigation and trial stuff swirling around but maybe once the dust settles they will want to do something. I am most concerned with his legacy. I hope someone will do a final documentary that is the truth so all of the other crap can be swept away. Maybe Spike or someone like that. I am all about making sure he is remembered for who he REALLY was.

Farewell   August 27th, 2009 10:36 pm ET

@ Lois, How are things in Vancouver ? I am was about to quit the blogs , but I can't do this! I am here listening to Michael's Give in to me ! Rock my World.
I am going out of my mind whith so much BS! Heroin, Demerol, Morphine, Lorazepam, Propofol , the list goes on &on ! I even went to look for a book in pharmacology to be able to understand it's a lot. Yes, right give me a break!
I have a list here that I got from The Mirror , I hate them!

Susan   August 27th, 2009 10:37 pm ET


Yes there are the "bad" cops out there, but thank goodness not the majority. In this case, I don't think the cop shop would stash fake heroin, they would have trashed it. The cop shop contains evidence from past crimes and would have already been tested for its contents.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 27th, 2009 10:38 pm ET

Good evening, everyone.

Heidi   August 27th, 2009 10:40 pm ET

Hi Susan, Nicole & Lynn!

Patty Anderson   August 27th, 2009 10:42 pm ET

Hello everyone. New blog cool. Larry sure keeps these going for us. have lots to rerad. here's an update I recieved today just wanted to share with everyone.

Lois   August 27th, 2009 10:42 pm ET

Hi Farewell, well it is another hot day in Vancouver lol...we have not had much rain at all this wonder what the press is going to dream up next.

You know if I were the Jackson's I would go after every tabloid magazine and sue their butts off for trashing their son, brother, uncle, etc...why haven't they? They could stand to make millions without having to do a thing but get money out of the tabloids for false reports.

Diane in Minneapolis   August 27th, 2009 10:42 pm ET

Wait a minute...NEWSFLASH...those were Diane Dimond's cigarettes, I just know it! me out on this one. Can Columbo figure out the cigarettes?

Heidi   August 27th, 2009 10:43 pm ET

Have you guys seen these tweets form:

Kenny Ortega on Twitter about 6 hours ago:
SPEECHLESSโ€ฆYour love is magical, thatโ€™s how I feel-but in your presence I am lost for words like, โ€œI LOVE YOUโ€

Janet Jackson on Twitter about 15 hours ago:
Thereโ€™s more to come and itโ€™s important that u guys get EVERYTHING 1st! I love you!!!

Farewell   August 27th, 2009 10:43 pm ET

So, if someone wants to be near the Glendale Cemetary I guess would have to go to another burial on the same day and stay there right?

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 27th, 2009 10:43 pm ET

Hi Heidi.

Lois   August 27th, 2009 10:44 pm ET

Hi Diane – maybe there were cigarettes in the house (my opinion, I highly doubt it, MJ was very particular about what went in his children's mouths and the air they breathed), but the security could be smokers .... and could have been having a few when MJ was not around.

Hi Nicole and Patty ๐Ÿ˜‰

Looks like it is time for the "night crew" to start blogging

Farewell   August 27th, 2009 10:46 pm ET

@ Susan, I didn't buy I just went to th library.

Diane in Minneapolis   August 27th, 2009 10:47 pm ET

Hey Patty thanks for posting that. Good info.

Mara   August 27th, 2009 10:48 pm ET


Good to hear you're feeling better
Is Soul Train coming out with a movie? If they do they better hire someone great to play Michael if they're planning on including his performance. Love, Peace and Soul..

Heidi   August 27th, 2009 10:48 pm ET


That was on MJHD site in is real. What is Janet trying to say or Ortega?

Susan   August 27th, 2009 10:48 pm ET

Hi Lori & Lex

Diane in Minneapolis   August 27th, 2009 10:49 pm ET

Heidi thanks for the twitters.

Farewell   August 27th, 2009 10:49 pm ET

Lois: Do you think would to crazy to go to the Cemetary and stay in another funeral? Really what can happen be arrested , I would mind for Michael why not! I would be pleased!

Patty Anderson   August 27th, 2009 10:50 pm ET

HI lex and Lori.

@Farewell. For the family's sake I do understand it very much they need the time(notpublic) to say the last goodbyes to Micheal. This has got to be unbearable for the kids and Katherine and the family

Lois   August 27th, 2009 10:50 pm ET

"...and they have told devotees not to bother coming to town to mourn Michael Jackson."

I wonder why that is?? "not to bother" >>> what? Why not, if fans want to see they will come, or is it just another bs story, are we going to get another date for another burial?

Jacquelyn   August 27th, 2009 10:51 pm ET

Patty Anderson   August 27th, 2009 10:51 pm ET

Absolutely Diane..I don't mind sharing anything at all. We are all here for Micheal.

Lois   August 27th, 2009 10:52 pm ET

IF they don't want the public to see the burial, then DON'T make an annoucement of the date and time, if it is private, then let it be private....I mean really that is what that word means doesn't it? Outside of Hollywood, that is what that word means.

angelswings   August 27th, 2009 10:53 pm ET

Hiedi how do you find where Janet writes I would love to see it .........and has any one gone on youtube and see the michael jacksons media death hoax theres 9 parts and wow its unreall lol

Mara   August 27th, 2009 10:53 pm ET


LOL I wouldn't mind either just for Michael make bail it's okay

sarah   August 27th, 2009 10:53 pm ET

what is Janet and Ortega trying to say im totally confuse ???????

Hi Mara ๐Ÿ˜‰

Patty Anderson   August 27th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

People are going to try anyway. They just want to pay their respets as well. Maybe the family will do something for the fans

Susan   August 27th, 2009 10:54 pm ET

Hi Farewell:

MJ's burial will be inside this huge castle like building. The only thing fans would be able to possibly see is family & friends exiting their cars. Perhaps Forest Lawn even has a private parking area to protect fan viewing. Forest Lawn is a huge, many many acres, of land and the castle type building appears to be half the size of Queen Elizabeths.

Patty Anderson   August 27th, 2009 10:55 pm ET

Hi Nicole, Mara, Lois and everyone. :0

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 27th, 2009 10:55 pm ET

Hey Patty

Mara   August 27th, 2009 10:59 pm ET


Maybe they should think of a nice way to ride him up and down the boulevard (RESPECTFULLY not like a circus) like they did Princess Di. She was the peoples Princess and He is the peoples Prince (well KING).
Only problem is I don't think people in LA would behave like they did in England.

Susan   August 27th, 2009 10:59 pm ET

It is my understand that MJ was to be put to rest in the masolium/tomb (sp?) like Marilyn Monroe . If that is correct, that is putting the casket into a wall with a plaque on the outside. No public viewing in there. Am I wrong or misunderstood, please update me.

Patty Anderson   August 27th, 2009 11:01 pm ET

You have a point Mara. But awesome idea. I would fly there in a heart beat for that.

Jacqueline   August 27th, 2009 11:01 pm ET

Ok thanks Heidi. I don't ever go over to that site.

Jacqueline   August 27th, 2009 11:02 pm ET

Me too Patty

Lori   August 27th, 2009 11:04 pm ET

Susan – that is my understanding as well. I believe that they are going to entomb him in a mausoleum, or crypt within the Holly Terrace.

Sandy-Houston   August 27th, 2009 11:04 pm ET

Good evening all,
A few things –

-HEROIN??!! I fully expect our wonderful media to take this all the way to the gutter!!

-2 months and MJ is STILL not buried (I can't imagine that they haven't buried him and the media didn't find out)

-If this was my brother in this situation, I would have hired a private investigating firm right away. This is not speaking against LAPD, but they only have so many resources. This is a big deal and we may never find out the whole story.

-If Chernoff practices law in Texas, can he represent Murray in California?? I don't know anything about him. Website is interesting to say the least.

– I think there's alot of hysteria with this whole situation.

Diane in Minneapolis   August 27th, 2009 11:05 pm ET

Patty – They blew away your post from the MJ fan club. Either that or I just can't see it but it looks like your message is cut off.

lex   August 27th, 2009 11:06 pm ET

is the whole gang here 2nite

Susan   August 27th, 2009 11:09 pm ET


Thank you. After the Staple Center memorial, which Forest Lawn was MJ taken to? There are 3 Forest Lawn's in the area. I'm trying to figure out if there will be a hurst again for this final burial or if MJ has been at Glendale the entire time.


Chernoff has to be licensed in the State of Calif. to practice here. I'll look him up on the legal board & get back to you.

Gene   August 27th, 2009 11:10 pm ET

Hi Lois, Patty, Nicole, Diane and everybody 2 more days until Michael's bday. Is anybody doing anything special on this day? I only heard about Brooklyn and LV's celebration but there must be more around the country.


Didnt they say they were having a Hollywood Fans Tribute for Fans by Fans? Is this happening on his bday I wonder?

Patty Anderson   August 27th, 2009 11:17 pm ET

Mara I recall hearing that, but haven't heard since

No....Chernoff is not licensed in the State of California. That means he'll have to work with a Calif. attorney to go into court for Murray.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 27th, 2009 11:19 pm ET

Hey Gene...see you later. Sorry I missed you. ๐Ÿ™

Farewell   August 27th, 2009 11:21 pm ET

I understand they want privacy to say the last good-bye! But , we are Michael's fans and we love him ! And he loved his fans. Why not be able to be there at this time at least at the same site. To be able to say good-bye as close as possible. Because, after Sep 3rd nobody is going to be able to go near the Mausoleum anymore. By the way Marilyn Monroe is not in a Mausoleum is an open space on the wall at the Westwood Cemetary I was there once. Is not a fortress like this place in Glendale. They should do something for the fans , don't you think?

Lori   August 27th, 2009 11:21 pm ET

Good night Gene ๐Ÿ™‚ take a nap and come back later, OK?

Patty Anderson   August 27th, 2009 11:26 pm ET

I agree with you completely Farewell, I wish they would do something for the fans. Maybe once they have better dealt with the loss, they will. I don't think,,,,,or at least I hope that they will not leave the fans out in the cold. Micheal would never have approved of that. Maybe in time after they heal a bit.

Patty Anderson   August 27th, 2009 11:27 pm ET

Rest well Jacqueline

Mara   August 27th, 2009 11:28 pm ET

Hi Lucero

Wow you're celebrating the whole weekend in honor of MJ in Mexico? WOW that's great! I remember when Selena passed away. One of my neighbors were devastated. I didn't understand since I didn't know who Selena was. When the movie came out I went to go see it and my god I fell inlove with her music. Especially something called bidi bidi bom bom.

Rhonda   August 27th, 2009 11:28 pm ET

According to some of the media and family members they did something for us already. They televised his memorial service for us.

lex   August 27th, 2009 11:30 pm ET

it wasnt heorine

Lois   August 27th, 2009 11:31 pm ET

I am not sure if this has any meaning...but tomorrow is August 28th – isn't that the day Martin Luther King Jr did his famous speech in 1963: I have a Dream?

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible because you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
I'm tired of bein' the victim of shame
They're throwing me in a class with a bad name
I can't believe this is the land from which I came
You know I do really hate to say it
The government don't wanna see
But if Roosevelt was livin'
He wouldn't let this be, no, no


Some things in life they just don't wanna see
But if Martin Luther was livin'
He wouldn't let this be

These are the lyrics from MJ's They Don't Care About Us and it is also the only last footage of him rehearsing. Maybe tomorrow may bring something???

Heidi   August 27th, 2009 11:31 pm ET

Well it wasn't enough!

Mara   August 27th, 2009 11:32 pm ET

Goodnight Jaquelyn

Hi Rhonda

Mary U from Ohio   August 27th, 2009 11:32 pm ET

I have been watching Michael Jacksons Death; Media Hoax Part 1-2-3-4-5 cont... part 4 and 5 explains alot... I thought i was the only one picking this whole thing apart.... I listened to Michael on every interview.. and Believe him on what he says.... I always did... watching part5 explains more...and why .... Michael I love you....I know why you did this.....I protected you every time someone said or says something bad... I say you don't know Michael he is Innocent... and a loving Spirit.. He would never do anything wrong... he has a heart and Soul..

Sheletta   August 27th, 2009 11:32 pm ET

Hello Everyone: Just started checking my messages here, what is going on? Puzzle here is this somemore BS, that they are staying about Michael? Can someone bring up to date please? Very confuse

Sandy-Houston   August 27th, 2009 11:32 pm ET

Office is in downtown Houston, so it must be very nice. Wonder how Murray is going to pay for this ๐Ÿ™‚

Mary Fischer wrote a story "Was Michael Jackson Framed?" during MJ's trial. It's certainly interesting what goes on behind the scenes. I do hope someone will do the same with this whole story too. They'll probably be more than one story written. Just have to decide which one to believe!

Heidi   August 27th, 2009 11:33 pm ET

Maybe on his bday Lois?

Patty Anderson   August 27th, 2009 11:33 pm ET

Hi Rhonda. What a job on the site. It's awesome love the changes.
And what a beautiful service it was. Perfect just for Micheal. I recorded it not that I will ever be able to handle watching it again, but at least I have it

Susan   August 27th, 2009 11:35 pm ET

Hi Farewell:

I think the Staples Center memorial is what done for MJ's fans. I do think a statue or monument would be great for MJ. If that was done, the only place I can think of where it would be placed is Las Vegas. It would have to be a city where stars, musicians, singers are centralized.

What the fans can do for MJ is to honor and support his children and their privacy from the media.

Mara   August 27th, 2009 11:35 pm ET

Goodnight Gene

lex   August 27th, 2009 11:36 pm ET

wow the media owes us more thn some damn memorial service( it was really good tho) but wat thy put mj thro wen he was alive and still evry channel should hav POSITIVE coverage of him like all the charites he gav 2 and what a nice person he was

Farewell   August 27th, 2009 11:36 pm ET

@ Patty Anderson let's keep the faith! But to tell the truth I dought it!
The Jackson's are to affraid that people are going to still Michael's body and they are in denial about a lot of things and they are underestimating the fans !! People will show up by the thousands you will see!

Lois   August 27th, 2009 11:37 pm ET

Didn't Martin Luther King III also speak at his memorial as well?

Heidi   August 27th, 2009 11:38 pm ET

Yes he did and his sister.

Mara   August 27th, 2009 11:38 pm ET


I know that's right I'll be one of them if for sure they do it on Memorial Day weekend. So many times they changed the date not surprised if he's buried already but who cares I'm just a hop skip and a jump away from CALI

Susan   August 27th, 2009 11:38 pm ET

Good night everyone. It's been a good blog tonight.

I'm still awaiting that "bombshell". Sleep tight everyone.

Good Night Susan – sweet dreams, until next time....

Good Night Patty - sweet dreams

angelswings   August 27th, 2009 11:44 pm ET

Hi Mary I saw the whole thing to wild what do you think of the whole thing?????????????

Farewell   August 27th, 2009 11:45 pm ET

The Staples was done for the fans who could get in a lottery ! The funeral is the last Good-Bye. I believe Michael's body wasn't even there that day! I agree with the donation to a charity in his honor , but the problem is we don't know wich one is Michael's anymore !
Soon, things are going to change it seems to me all is going to be about the Jacksons on Michael's shadow like always. Do you really think they care about Michael's fans? Only to bring them money that they really need right now! Sorry, but this is my opinion.

Sheletta   August 27th, 2009 11:45 pm ET

Michael did not smoke but some who was in his company did.

Maria: Thank you I am. Dialysis takes a lot out of you when treatment is over.

Lois: That's what I mention last week. Why would you let his fans know and then say stay away, that this place is private and famous people are burial there and you will be arrested if you come. Only family can enter

Rhonda   August 27th, 2009 11:45 pm ET

Hi Everyone and Thanks Patty I did more changes when I got home tonight. New stuff

pat davis   August 27th, 2009 11:46 pm ET

I adore the Jackson's. Right now they must still be in shock over the sudden death of Michael, just as we are. I'm sure they are feeling enormous guilt about not being more involved with Michael's personal life and those around him. At the same time that is a close knit family. ALL of the Jackson's were their to support Michael in court EVERYDAY when he had those ridiculous charges placed against him. I beleive everything that they decide is in the best interest of the family and what Michael would have wanted. His place of rest looks and sounds beautiful. Look at Michael's memorial service and how well that was put together, his beautiful gold casket. Michael is being laid to rest like the King that he was and ALWAYS will be. I fully support the family on their decisions and the projects they are planning in the future. God Bless Michael and the entire Jackson Family. My heart ACHES everyday. I love you, MJ!

Toni   August 27th, 2009 11:49 pm ET

HI. ๐Ÿ™‚
You know what I dont understand is....the children have already been through a viewing { Paris anyway } and a small private service before the long tribute. And after 2 mths, they are going to have to go through that again. I kind of dont think that is right to do to those little children. Blanket is not going to understand that!!??

angelswings   August 27th, 2009 11:50 pm ET

new blog up

Lori   August 27th, 2009 11:52 pm ET

Toni, it is probably just going to be a really simple gravesite service. The kids will be OK. I am praying for them and I am sure many others are as well.

Terry, TX   August 27th, 2009 11:52 pm ET

Did they ever bury the junkie?

Farewell   August 27th, 2009 11:53 pm ET

Mara: I hope they don't change the date , but so far it will be Sep 3rd.
I don't think they will change again , but even Michael is already buried which is a possibility it would the last Good- Bye even if they don't allowed nobody there. Let's wait and see.

Lois   August 27th, 2009 11:56 pm ET

Well, I have an early good night all ๐Ÿ™‚

Tomorrow is another day and hopefully with more positive answers.

Nite girls!

Sandy-Houston   August 28th, 2009 12:00 am ET

I'm with you. We all need to hear some positives.

Good night all.

Goodnight Patty and Lois

Lucero are you here?


If they do announce change to the public about the whereabouts/when I would like to go – just to satisfy myself.

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 12:05 am ET

@ All of you ! Is getting late , let's see what tomorow may bring!
I hope for positive answers ! Good Night !

Judy   August 28th, 2009 12:10 am ET

Thank you everyone for informing me that the Jacksons are doing a reality show. I bet Michael didn't want to do it. His father was always telling people when he signed contracts that he could get Michael abroad. But he knew MJ would have no part of it and they Joe would got Katherine and tell her to get Michael on broad. I heard her say in an interview once that Michael didn't need his brothers,but that needed him. How true is that. If they wanted money so bad they should have put their egos away and let MJ be the star and they should have been his back up singers and band. I am not say that the brothers don't have talent. They just didn't have it like MJ did. Joe Jackson would always say that MJ wasn't anything special that they were all good and MJ shouldn't have been singled out. BUT HE IS THE ONE THAT HAD THE TALENT. They should have let MJ have full rein,but MJ would always say well the brothers voted and I am only one vote. I think thats reason he wanted to get away from the brothers,so he could create what he wanted to create and he didn't need theirs votes to do it. I am sure that MJ will look over his children. He loved them so much. I heard to night on ET that Paris has pictures all over her room of her father and his drawings. GOD BLESS THEM

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 12:15 am ET

Mara: If Ken Sunshine comes tomorrow with another annoucenmet is because the day will Sep 3rd. And will love to be there even if I have to drive some thousand miles. I would love to be able to say Good-Bye to Michael and no Glendale Police is going to stop me! My heart is telling me that is going to be omething coming tomorrow the day before his birthday I don't know I have a feeling . Do you know how much energy is everywhere Michael has been in our toughts for a long time now. And started as desbelieve and is turning to anger for many people I don't know there is somthing about all this that is a missing link , do you understand me ? Maybe I am getting crazy.

beth   August 28th, 2009 12:24 am ET

I just read the Jackson family has asked for the FBI to become involved in the investigation. Good news because I don't have much confidence in LAPD.

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 12:26 am ET

@ Judy , I can't imagine what these children have been going thru .Without Michael they were his life and now they have to live with The Jackson Family. I understand Michael was part of the family, but they lived a world apart if you know what I mean. Have you read the lecture Michael gave at Oxford University in England on Mach 2001 is a must , we will see what I am talking about. He was a mensh ( Ydish for a Human Beign). And I will miss him, to know that he was around in this world.

Sheletta   August 28th, 2009 12:28 am ET

Judy: You are exactly right. Michael did not want anything to do with Joe or his brothers. They have always, drop his name in something so that they could get money. The last time he help them was in the victory tour, and that was his lat time. They, spend all they money and felt that Michael owe then. The often take credit for his sucess. Stating if it was not for the Jackson 5/Jackson he would not had been what he was today. Which is not true. What Michael accomplish along and he work his butt off for it. He wanted to be remember as Michael Jackson not a Group. That is why he separated himself from that mess.

Mara   August 28th, 2009 12:28 am ET


NO you're not crazy. I feel you. Do you stay in CALI?

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 12:28 am ET

@ beth , where did you hear this? If th FBI is going to get involved is a Federal case. But forgive me they aren't so much better than the LAPD.
Don't trust so much!

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 12:30 am ET

Mara: No, I am in the south. But I will go !

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 12:32 am ET

@ Sheletta , you are right ! Michael did not want to be with them!

Mara   August 28th, 2009 12:34 am ET


We'll just sit tight I guess until tomorrow and see if there are any changes. Are they celebrating MJ's bday in your city? They are in mine!

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 12:35 am ET

@ Sheletta, Do you who smokes Cigars? Dileo I don't know about Cigaretts.

Mara   August 28th, 2009 12:35 am ET


Speaking of the South. I cannot get enough of the Housewives of Atlanta. Nene is too much for me.

Sheletta   August 28th, 2009 12:37 am ET

Toni: You are right about that. But you know something that I've been thinking about, is that Michael may already be burial and this is just a way for then to see if fans show up. I do not want to see these kids go through this again, especially Blanket. He keep's asking when his daddy coming home, he really expecting Mihael to show up any mins. and look at Paris she writes letter to her dad everyday. Now, Price is the one I am worried about because he doe not say much and do not even talk about his father.

Heidi   August 28th, 2009 12:37 am ET


This is sad but here in Oregon they aren't doing a thing.

Mara   August 28th, 2009 12:39 am ET


I'm sorry boo. If you're off on the weekend hop the red eye and you can come with me. =)

I had an extra ticket for Linda NY but she's going to the one in Brooklyn.

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 12:44 am ET

@ Mara, I have to check ! Down here there are a lot of rappers. I have been listening to the radio station and so far nothing was mentioned. I will celebrate with a good bottle of Champange , his songs and a white candle that I have been lighting for him since June 25th.

Mara   August 28th, 2009 12:46 am ET


You not going to Brooklyn? If I would've known about the Brooklyn show before the Vegas show I would've taken some time and went to the Brooklyn party. I bet it's going to be off the hook, No doubt, =)

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 12:50 am ET

@ Mara, you know I just received a message from CNN saying for me to slow down that I am sending to many messages. Maybe I should slow down. Are you willing to go to the funeral?

Heidi   August 28th, 2009 12:53 am ET

That is a good idea, except mind will be a bottle of Wild Turkey or Dickel.

angelswings   August 28th, 2009 12:54 am ET

Me I will watch Micheals 45 birthday he was so happy

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 12:55 am ET

@ Sheletta , how is that doyou know so much about what is going on with th Children and the family?

Mara   August 28th, 2009 12:57 am ET


Really? They told you to slow down? I remember once there were 800 plus messages and I had a message also but all I did was press "yes" and I was good to go.

You mean to the burial? Yes I'm willing to go. I signed up for the tickets to the Memorial but I got the "NO" email from Staples Center so I couldn't go.

My boyfriend and I actually drove out to LA the day after the news broke just to be there and it was crazier than crazy but I didn't care I just had to be there you know?

Champagne? Perrier Jouet Fleur?

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 12:57 am ET

@ Heidi, if a drink Wild Turkey I could end up with Michael at the funeral !

angelswings   August 28th, 2009 12:59 am ET

hahahaha farewell to funny

Heidi   August 28th, 2009 1:00 am ET


I like to drink it straight up! I know Michael didn't drink but I have so many questions. And it is driving me to drink.

Mara   August 28th, 2009 1:01 am ET


Your mom's right and I probably wouldn't let my 18 year old daughter go to a block party either but I'm damn sure taking her with me to the Party at the Palms here in Las Vegas. She loves her some Michael.

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 1:02 am ET

Michael only drank speciality wines

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 1:04 am ET

@ Mara: Champagne Brut Dry – I wish it could be Don Perignon .
I am serious CNN send me a message asking me to slow down, mayb they can;t read everything I am saying !!!
No matter what I will be in Glendale on Sep 3rd. But if they change the date I will know as told you before, so the date is Sep 3rd. I will be there . Is going to take 32 hours to get there. But Michael is worsted the ride.

Heidi   August 28th, 2009 1:05 am ET

I use to love Don and Cristal but I tried Perrier Jouet Fleur and I like that way better.

I wonder has anyone else received that message. Oh well as long as your message is getting through that's good.

Yes, Glendale Sept 3rd. That's a Friday right? Memorial Day weekend. YES

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 1:11 am ET

He would drink wine on special occasions and they were the very expensive kind and he like them sweet. There was a bottle at the ranch they found when they raided it. It was like a muscat wine or something.

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 1:12 am ET

I didn't know Michael drank wine either. I didn't think he smoked or drank but what do I know?

I just know I love him and his music and I can't wait to celebrate him.

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 1:17 am ET

He didn't drink a lot, only on special occasions and benefits and stuff like that

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 1:19 am ET

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 1:23 am ET

Yes, Michael had a wild side and a jokster side and he had all kinds of sides LOL

yeah, those kind of prices. The more expensive the better the taste

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 1:25 am ET

@Rhonda it doesn't matter how much he drink as long as he could enjoy himself, you see this troubles me, how come a man like Michael, brilliant, inteligent was so lonely.

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 1:26 am ET

Because everytime he would get close to someone they would stab him in the back. So he stopped trusting and became sheltered

Mara   August 28th, 2009 1:26 am ET


The only thing I don't care for is Ports. Too damn sweet and I'm not trying to drink that with my dessert, Give me a cappucino.

I don't do either. I am a mountain dew drinker LOL

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 1:28 am ET

Go and watch the video come together by Michael I think you will like it

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 1:30 am ET

Michael had his moments at time. Just not very many of them where you see him smile anymore and it is a shame cause he deserved so much more. He deserved to happy and have a life just like anyone else did. What pisses me off is the media don't hound the other celebrities like they did Michael and they are at fault as far as I am concerened help kill him too

lex   August 28th, 2009 1:31 am ET

yea it was good i like watchin anythng frm the bad tour i think dat was wen michael was the hottest

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 1:32 am ET

@Lex: I have to confess I am Michael's age in fact I am a little bit older a few months ! I will never forget how excited he became in Berlin when the fans were screaming MIchael is the best FTP, when he showed Blanket out of the window, remember . We all have wild sides.

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 1:32 am ET

Michael was sexy period

lex   August 28th, 2009 1:36 am ET

i remeber wen he did dat it was all ovr the news and i was like wats the big deal its not like he was gonna drop lil blanket but the media were all ovr poor mj

Sheletta   August 28th, 2009 1:36 am ET

Farewell: Because Michael, did not know who he ould trust. You need to remember that all people did was want something from him, including family. That is why it seem he had all the money in the world, and could pay whatever he wanted except the one thing that he could never get someone who was truely there for him.

Mara   August 28th, 2009 1:36 am ET

Totally agree no matter black skin white skin afro straight hair big nose small nose he was just a nice piece of ....I mean a great looking man.

As a matter of fact the whole family is great looking. Katherine and Joe were good looking people so yeah they had some gorgeous kids!

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 1:38 am ET

@ Rhonda, is this that makes mad, I know he was not smiling anymore ! But, if you look at his face during the last filmed rehersal when the lights went down he had a smile of joy , it was so beautiful , he was alive on stage it was his high, the perfomance, the fans, the energy, he usted to cry for God Sakes. Youcould see his emotions coming out, he was in complete harmony with his body, voice and spirit.

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 1:39 am ET

Michael's nephews in the why video are very nice looking as well

Terri   August 28th, 2009 1:39 am ET

Terri   August 28th, 2009 1:43 am ET

hey sany Rhonda havent seen you a few days how are you

Sheletta   August 28th, 2009 1:43 am ET

Mara: Yes Michael did drink. Wine. Beside there is nothing wrong with it. They say he call wine Jesus juice., Even in one of his telephone conversation you can heard in his own words, that he was drinking a wine cooler with Randy. That is what most do not understand Michael's was Human, and he had his faults also. I see nothing wrong with him drinking wine, really.

sandymjfan   August 28th, 2009 1:46 am ET

I'm so busy at work...trying to keep reading the blog.....don't these patients know I have blogging to do? LOL

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 1:46 am ET

@ Sheletta, what I asked you was, since you seem to know so much about Michael and the family that maybe you know them! I don't really car about Michael's money it doesn't matter to me . what it does matter is that he was a very intereting person with a lot of talent and at the same time he had to hide and dress up to be abl to go out and be around regulat people and is all a great shame , he deserved to have someone to love him from who he truly was a nice guy , with his ecentricities but a pure person. I wish he was my friend, maybe I could have help him in any way.

I'm a Wine Connoisseur so I agree there is nothing wrong with drinking wine. I just never knew he drank wine.

lex   August 28th, 2009 1:48 am ET

Hello everyone ....
I just hope we will get some answers in the next few days.....It is making crazy!!!

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 1:56 am ET

Hi Sandy,
I am running from here to the site. Glad to see you too

Sheletta   August 28th, 2009 1:56 am ET

I read about Michael alot. You would be surprise. LOL

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 1:58 am ET

@ Mara: Are still there?

sandymjfan   August 28th, 2009 2:00 am ET

Rhonda...I'll try and make it over there in a few minutes

lex   August 28th, 2009 2:01 am ET

Terri   August 28th, 2009 2:01 am ET

hey mara sorry this thing takes so long to refresh grrrrrrrr

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:01 am ET

I have done alot of changes today

Terri   August 28th, 2009 2:02 am ET

Im good ty @rhonda your site is really coming along extremely well awesome!

Mara   August 28th, 2009 2:04 am ET


Yes I just went to put my two cents on in the new blog. I had to let them know the Marijuana they found belongs to Murrays mama.

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:04 am ET

Thank You Terri

Terri   August 28th, 2009 2:06 am ET

lol @mara

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:08 am ET

okay this makes no sense. If they just now found this stuff, where was it when they were in the house the first time after the family removed all of his belongings. Wouldn't they have found it then and not 2 months later

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:09 am ET

And why would the family call and say they found something in his house when they haven't been back there since they took all of his stuff out

sandymjfan   August 28th, 2009 2:10 am ET

You are so right Rhonda....nothing makes sense ...they put crap out there everyday....lies...lies!!!

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:11 am ET

Why would his family call and tell them something like that in the first place. They knew it would look bad.

lex   August 28th, 2009 2:13 am ET

unless its a confirmed source i dnt beleive wat the media says or puts out thr rite now i only beleive mrs katherine jackson cuz shes trustworthy evn tho she doesnt say much

Sheletta   August 28th, 2009 2:13 am ET

Farewell: I agree with what you are saying. Michael had everything except what he really needed and that is a true friend. I like you people thought he had no feelings, but he did. Everytime I look at his videos I look into his eyes and no matter how he may look you can see in his eyes how loney and sad he really was. What breaks my heart is that no body paid no attention to it. Meaning his close net circle of associates, not friends. Friends does not treat you like they are treating Michael now that he is not among the living.

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:15 am ET

Michael had no true friends and he knew that. That's why he relied on his fans for support. Michael had all kinds of feelings. People just stepped on them all the time.

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 2:15 am ET

@ Sheletta, I undestand , I read a lot about Michael too ! In fact lately I have been listening to his interviews on The GetMusic and believe me he wasn't so hard to understand that's why we are all here in this blog at 2:00 AM my time! Is just when you grow up seen someone become an artist and you want to know more about that person. Is very difficult to explain how do you imagine things or do you really think you know.
An now that he is gone and after all the troubles he had endured it gets to you, like what a shame. He could open himself to nobody and this is terrible. Like he himself said during his lecture in Oxford -England . " But no matte how much money you make or how famous you become you still feel empty. What you really searching for is unconditional love, unqualified acceptance. And that was the one thing that was denied to you at birth" and I tought to myself My God one could see thru him it was visible the anguish.Well, is what I have to say.

Mara   August 28th, 2009 2:16 am ET

Yeah I'm not so sure how true these stories are that's why when they post a stupid story which is often, I respond with a stupid answer. lol

Just fed up with all the bs. We're getting closer to Michael's bday they should be reporting on how everyone is celebrating MJ's bday and good happy articles but no we're still going down this road.

Sheletta   August 28th, 2009 2:18 am ET

Mara: I keep seeing in the comments about "Trees". Where is this article about finding trees in his home?

Mara   August 28th, 2009 2:19 am ET

The new blog

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:20 am ET

This is what they want out there. This is what they have always wanted out there. It's all bad. Paint Michael to be the bad guy in all of it.

Make sure they don't give him respect and the credit that he so really deserves for all his humanitarian work and helping the children and trying to heal the world. They will never give him what he deserves

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 2:22 am ET

@Rhonda: You are going to make me cry. You know I feel guilty . knowing all this and knowing how much he meant to me as a poet and an artist, I always wounder , what if he was my friend. What could I have given him to make he feel happy even if just for a day!

Mara   August 28th, 2009 2:24 am ET

You guys – don't get sad now you're making me sad. =(

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:25 am ET

I have been crying for 2 months now. I keep saying the same thing. If I had of been there those people would have never gotten that close to him. I would have been there for him to talk too, cry with, play games with or whatever it is that he wanted to do.

That is why I made the site I made. It is for Michael and his friends.

Why am I going to make you cry (sorry)

sandymjfan   August 28th, 2009 2:25 am ET

MJ was full of love and caring.....he was never treated fairly.....even now....why won't they just tell the truth instead of all these lies?....Like MJ said "good news doesn't sell".....maybe someday he will get the respect that he so very deserves!!!

Sheletta   August 28th, 2009 2:26 am ET

Farewell: I'm feeling the same way. It's a darn shame when all this love you have to give there is none for you out there unconditional. Poor Michael.

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:26 am ET

In friends I mean his fans

lex   August 28th, 2009 2:27 am ET

michael was lonely evr since he was a kid and wen he smiled its like damn how could anybody hurt him like ppl did he was probaly the nicest person in the world but all evrybody saw was money but not michael if ppl opened up their minds thy'd see wat a great human being michael was

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 2:29 am ET

@ Sheletta, you see that's why I think is going to be vry difficult to do a shrine to Michael here in the US. Because, there are some many crazy people that have this free hate. It doesn't make sense to me, but I see on my every day I sometimes have to contain myself about the things people say! And the media is the one to blame. I always say what I think and believe but to have to deal with ignorance is very hard!

sandymjfan   August 28th, 2009 2:30 am ET

these past 2 months have been overwhelming for all of Michaels much love for him....I hope he knew how very much his fans loved him.....there isn't a day that has gone by that I haven't cried ....miss him terribly!!!!! ;(

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:31 am ET

I have gotten in trouble at my work cause when they bad mouth Michael I tell them to leave my store

Sheletta   August 28th, 2009 2:32 am ET

Rhonda: You know I said the same thing. I would had been there for Michael if he needed someone to talk to, to vent at, unconditional nothing attached. What site did you made. I miss that part.

lex   August 28th, 2009 2:32 am ET

the media killed mj emoitionally and so dd bashir he took advantage of mj and if i evr saw dat man i'd beat him til i strted bleedin dat man is the biggest a-hole in the world u could tell he was jealous of mj ugh i hate dat man so much

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:33 am ET

Okay, I have to go lay down. Work tomorrow. Probably no sleep again, but that's nothing new with me. I will be back on the site when I get home tomorrow Sandy. Go take a look at the new stuff and let me know what you think.

Much Love to Everyone

Love You More Michael

sandymjfan   August 28th, 2009 2:33 am ET

Good for you Rhonda!!!! I am always defending him myself.....!!!

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:34 am ET

I will always defend Michael and I always have. I just wish he knew that. I would do anything for him

sandymjfan   August 28th, 2009 2:36 am ET

Night Rhonda!!! Love you!! Sweet to you tomorrow....

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:37 am ET

There is a blog and a comments page. Each page has links attached to them. If you want to go in the blog, click on My Opinion then click comments and then click Love You More Blog. Hope its not to hard to navigate through. I tried to set it up easy for everyone that wanted to go visit

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 2:37 am ET

@Rhonda: Do you think he knew in his heart that somewhere out there would be strangers that had the uncondional love to share with him?

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:37 am ET

Night Sandy,
will talk when I get home.
Much Love

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:39 am ET

I think so cause he said it in one of his songs. Break of Dawn I think. Would have to listen to it again to make sure. If everyone can go and get his Invincible CD on Saturday cause that is the Album that Sony did not promote. I already have it. I have all his cd's so far

Sheletta   August 28th, 2009 2:40 am ET

Lex: The problem with Bashir was he try to hurt Michael image by airing that tape, but what I did not understand about him was he knew Michael was video taping also, and for him to play his on t.v. and say such negative things about Micheal, not expecting for Michael to reverse and put his video out there that show what he was saying. For what I understand he try not for Michael to release his video, trying to say that Michael was not a good parent, the nerve. Now, he is the same man who detroy Princess Diane image too. When Michael pass away he try to give his condolescence on live t.v. I turned the channe. Hey everyone speaking of interviews. Opha still have not came out to address about Michael. I find that strange, still he did grant her an interview back in 1993.

It is amazing how pple easly forget when it does not benefit them you know?

Farewell   August 28th, 2009 2:41 am ET

@ Mara. Rhonda, Sheletta and everyone else I have to go to sleep!
Rhonda I will go to your site tomorow! Good Night Ladies.

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:42 am ET

Oprah will not do anything on Michael cause she said that her show does not promote a person who hurts children

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:43 am ET

Night Farewell

Rhonda   August 28th, 2009 2:44 am ET

Okay, I am really going to lay down

Night Everyone

Much Love

Sheletta   August 28th, 2009 2:46 am ET

Farewell: True that. I defends him all the time. I'll tell them in a heartbeat that how can you say this or that, was you there? Did you actually see him do these things? People, don't understand a true fan, I've never believe all that B.S. back in the 90's or even the case later. Oh yes, I have to heard about how I was fannings someone who hurt children, please I would say, if I was not there then I do not care what people think. Michael love children so much and that not in him to do something like that.

Samantha - South Africa   August 28th, 2009 2:47 am ET

I'm away from the blog for almost an entire day and I come back to find all this is going on,I sure have a lot to catch up on!

If Michael was featured in the series before his untimely demise then I'll have to stock up on Kleenex when the programme finally airs..........

sandymjfan   August 28th, 2009 2:49 am ET

Oprah is another one that turned their back on MJ........I guess she didn't see that he was found NOT GUILTY!!!!

Sheletta   August 28th, 2009 2:53 am ET

Thank you Rhonda for the site info. Okay, then why would she do a interview with him I believe it was 1993. That's B.S. She is passing judgement on him and convicting him of something he did not do. Ain't that a B–tch. Now, I am piss off

Sheletta   August 28th, 2009 2:56 am ET

Yes Sandy I see now. You know it is amazing how people can get so big they turned their noses up to others. He was good enought for an intervew back then but not good enought now.

Samantha - South Africa   August 28th, 2009 2:56 am ET

@ Sheletta

Given that Oprah has FAILED to mention anything let alone even utter a single word about Michael since his passing,I now find myself having little regard for the 'Queen of Talk'!!!!

sandymjfan   August 28th, 2009 2:58 am ET

ever since she said that I refuse to watch her show or by her magazine!! It is unbelieveable how MJ was treated by the media, and by others in the industry!!!

carol kesling   August 28th, 2009 3:00 am ET

@ jessica, i saw it on hollywood 411 on cox channel 99. its my t.v. guide channel.. i watched 2 times to make sure i heard it right....i only care about buying michaels cds and such to help pay off his debt hopefully for the kids...

Sheletta   August 28th, 2009 3:03 am ET

Well, I am done with her now. I am going to even unscribed to her link for shows and what have you.

Samantha - South Africa   August 28th, 2009 3:06 am ET

@ Sheletta

I even watched the promo for the season premiere and no trace of Michael anywhere!I heard that Janer was scheduled to be on the show in coming weeks,any idea as to whether there's any 'truth' to this?

sandymjfan   August 28th, 2009 3:09 am ET

Has anyone heard about tickets going on sale for the "THIS IS IT" movie? I have been on ticketmaster site...nothing ..I even called them and said they had nothing about the movie....I have called all theaters here where I live and none are showing it...:(...I'm trying to find the cities ect....can anyone help????

Samantha - South Africa   August 28th, 2009 3:12 am ET

@ Sandy

It goes on sale from 28 September

sandymjfan   August 28th, 2009 3:15 am ET

but where do you buy tickets????

cherubijne, Netherlands   August 28th, 2009 6:12 am ET

I have had a lot of respect for many years for Ophray with her shows (and many other things she did) here in The Netherlands but now
I have lost all respect for her, in this situation she can be wiserโ€ฆ I will never see any show of Oprah again, sorry.
Some things in life had my heart broken and this is oneโ€ฆ

โ€˜Some things in life they just donโ€™t wanna seeโ€™


Lora Ottawa Canada   August 28th, 2009 7:09 am ET


Especially after MJ had Oprah as a guest in 1993 to Neverland to film an interview.....I could imagine how MJ treated royalty probably....she seemed to really like him........but I guess she fell prey to Martin Bashir and his lies.........and the other media and their lies!!!!

Dont know what to make of her......but a lot of his "so called " friends have not said anything about him or showed up at his public memorial.....let's see if they show up for the burial......which is private.

simona   August 28th, 2009 10:42 am ET

can't wait to see it soon...

Sarah D   August 28th, 2009 2:18 pm ET

Ok I haven't read the comments. Im sure some of you have already made it clear that


im sitting and wondering if I really can describe my hate for journalism nowadays. YOU'RE ALL IGNORANT! every single of you writers have a role in his death, you ruined his life.

Mion   August 28th, 2009 7:14 pm ET

I'm not much of a fan for reality shows, but if involves Michael Jackson and his family, I think they might be able to grab my eye.

Heather   September 3rd, 2009 12:45 am ET

Well it's good that they're adding a new show cause I won't be watching their Gene Simmons Familly Jewels anymore. I used to like the show but I am a loyal Michael Jackson fan and after hearing Gene Simmons commenting on a Toronto radio station after Michael 's death that he believes Michael was a pedophile I can't stomach the thought of ever watching his show again. Shame on him, Michael was found innocent and Gene Simmons is definitely no candidate for sainthood with his sexual history and one he blatantly brags about in front of his children.
