Does the fashionably late rule apply to a funeral?!

Porque vc estará sempre em meu coração..
I love you, you're not alone,

I truly have enjoyed MJ since he first came out singing and dancing, I loved him but I will not buy one single thing related to Micheal, I will not support that freeloading fat bottom family ever again! I am disgusted by this whole display! I know the kids will be taken care of now that an attorney was appointed to their trust fund...they will be RICH! I refuse to help the rest of the Jacksons out...they would have still been living in that 2 x 4 if it weren't for Micheal's talent!!! RIP Michael!! We Loved Ya!

Dilemma    

O.k it's late and all the little chillens are sleepy and want to go to bed who in the sand hills do these people think they are keeping people waiting like that. If I was the funeral director all the damn lights would be out and the closed sign would be up cuz they azzes would have missed the damn funeral.

How disrespectful can the Jacksons get to be that late to Michael's funeral. I've never seen such a thing. Most families are there early to greet people.

It just shows money doesn't mean class or manners.

20. #13 ...who is Shana Mangatal?????

Posted at 10:15PM on Sep 3rd 2009 by tami

********************************************************************
Shana Mangatal met MJ in 1990 when she was 20 years old. They were a couple, she traveled to Hawaii and Japan to be with him when he was on tour. He suddenly dumped her and married LMP. She was devastated. He apologized to her when he got back to L.A. MJ & Shana got back together, either while he was still married to Debbie or after they divorced, and MJ cast Shana in his 1996 video Ghosts as one of the townspeople. She has also been in a few movies, like House Party 2, and 2pac's video: Unconditional Love, where she's sitting in a car in the beginning and wearing a red dress. She is a real beautiful black woman, and looks multi-racial. Her mother is very light. On his 2001 Invincible album, the song Whatever Happens goes: "Whatever happens, Shana nana, ooh, Shana nana, don't let go of my hand, Shana nana, ooh, Shana nana...." You have to wait until the last 1/3 of the song to hear that. In 2003, Shana did an interview on ET and came forward about her romantic relationship with MJ to set the record straight about him being a normal, red-blooded man. She did interviews for other shows and publications, like the New York Post. Then, in 2003, when Blanket was less than 1 year old, Shana was hostess of MJ's Christmas party, and he told her to invite all of her celebrity friends along with all of his friends, and he put her in charge of the Jackson family. In 2004, MJ was recieving an award in Washington, D.C., I think for charity work he did in Africa, and he invited Shana's family to come to it. Shana's brother, Todd Mangatal, has blogged about Shana's "friendship" with MJ on his entertainment business website over the years: www.ariousentertainment.com. Shana's ET interview is on YouTube, and so is her 2pac video, Unconditional Love. I don't know, but I wouldn't be surprised if she's Blanket's mom, since he looks like a good mixture of MJ and Shana, and her has her nose from the side view, and her hair.
