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.

good decision. let them live lives that are as normal as possible. they don't need to be "celebrities" because of the family. they have enough and will have the opportunity to do anything they want in the world and never have to work to make it publicly known. let them focus on grander ideas than a reality show.

38. Less than a day after Michael Jackson's death, the mayor of Rio de
Janeiro, Brazil, announced that the city would erect a statue of the
singer in Dona Marta, a favela that was once notorious for drug dealing
and is now a model for social development. The change was spurred partly
by Jackson's 1996 visit to film the video for "They Don't Care About
Us."

You are 100% right.
They played the media and gullible fans.
They told that poor child what to say they even pushed her to continue when she broke down.
They are master manipulators just like their brother

Haha! I know Jermaine is pissed since he is basically the greedy one. He probably cannot wait until his mother's gone.

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

According to US mag Katherine supports Michaels children being on the show.

"According to Us Magazine, The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty will now feature Michael Jackson’s three offspring, aged 7 to 12, in the program loosely scheduled for a December premiere. Katherine, the family matriarch and custodian of Prince, Paris and Blanket, supports the minors’ appearance on the show. Janet is also behind the docu-series, which will air in 5 hour-long segments or 10 half-hour episodes. Eldest and lesser known sister, Rebbie, disagrees with the King of Pop’s formerly fiercely protected children participating, arguing that Michael would “spin in his grave if he knew his kids would be on this show.”

.. and why not more $$$ nobody's going to watch her brats and Joe. Watch them do what?

These people are moneygrubbing douchebags. You cant believe a damn word that comes out of their mouths ESPECIALLY JOE KATHERINE JERMAINE AND RANDYS

They probably put the spin out there that the kids were going to be on the show.....THEN TMZ puts Katherines face on to dispute that allegation thus making Katherine appear the champion/SAVIOR of the kids. US said Rebbie was against it and KATHERINE was for it. Certainly Katerine was for it she had no problem helping and encouraging Joe to pimp out the boys all their lives. Still pimping them out.

I'm sure the reality show will be filmed at Hayvenhurst since none of the boys have a home of their own yet except maybe Tito, and Jackie. Jermaine Randy and Marlon I believe still live at home with Mama, IMAGINE! Remember Jermaine was shopping for a 20,000,000. home right after he put the Vienna Concert tickets on sale! (how did all that fiasco come out anyway did anybody get their tickets refunded?)

Who knows they're all a pack of liars, thieves, MJ leeches.
The whole bunch of them except Janet and Rebbie.

Country music legend Willie Nelson will headline this year’s event with jazz great Dianne Reeves and up-and-coming artist Kristina Train, and the Gala will pay a special posthumous tribute, its first-ever Legend award, to the late Michael Jackson, the single largest donor in the T.J. Martell Foundation’s 34-year history.

Go Katherine Go!! Hope this is true. I would imagine the children's lawyer would also be on side with the decision to keep them off TV.

As for # 8. "strange they had no problem making the little girl get up on stage and tell the world what a great dad the freak was..well lets say they forced the kid up there and made her say wacko jacko was a great dad.they will be on tv eventually either for drugs or killing someone im sure..... "

What the heck is wrong with you??? Why would you post in regards to something you so obviously know nothing about? A cry for attention? What?

Get tired of people making comments based ONLY on what they've read from sensationalized media opinion. Do some factual research next time you feel the need to blow your horns. Read something that doesn't just have pretty pictures with kindergarten mentality.

They were in it for the money    

I don't believe one damn thing these Jacksons say. Katherine is giving Michaels money to her sons to support their fat lazy asses. Shes giving money to Joe who is another lazy assed b*stard. It aint nobodys fault but those demented Jackson who blew through their money time and time again. Losers, let them seek real employment. Where is Doc Klein to rescue these chilkdren, HIS true Bio children!
