Katherine Jackson -- Those Kids Won't Be on TV

10/14/2009 2:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson says Michael Jackson's kids will not appear on any TV reality show in her lifetime.

Katherine tells TMZ Michael would never want his kids to appear on TV, much less on a reality show. She says her son went to great lengths to protect the kids from TV cameras, often shielding them with masks.

There are reports A&E's Jackson reality show will include MJ's 3 kids. Katherine, who is the legal guardian of the kids and ultimately makes the decision, tells us it will NOT happen.

I think that realty shows should become illegal. What a waste of time sitting in front of your television set watching someone else's pathetic life, That must mean your life is just as pathetic. Good for her. If those kids want to be in the entertainment business when they get older then go for it!

Good. She's right. I trust anything she would decide for those children. She is a very good mother, IMO.

the only reason they would turn down the deal was there was not enough money involved..eventually its going to come out that these kids are not wackos kids and then they will be worth nothing to the family....then we will see them on tv im sure...in a remake of "different strokes"
ohhh the humanity

Good for her!!! I COMPLETELY agree with Rosie! All reality shows do is poke into people's lives. And for the kids, they have NO privacy! It's been hard enough already for these kids to live a "normal" life and a reality show would just make it worse! I also think that reality shows make children act out more to "show off" for the camera! Maybe the Gosselins should take a page from their book? It seems all those two care about is their on camera time and fame. Who suffers in all of that? THE CHILDREN!!! If parents truely care about their kids they wouldn't do it! I watched the Octo-mom show and the saddest thing I have ever seen was the oldest(?) little girl hiding from the camera and yelling, "Go away!!" What kind of life is that for a child? When they feel like they have to hide in the place they're suppose to feel safest? Katherine Jackson DEFINATELY gets a thumbs up from me! She's the only one that seems to actually cares about the children!!

I never believed that tabloid junk anyway. Some readers are so gullible. When they said they had talked to Rebbie that was a definite red flag that it was a lie.
