La Toya Jackson Wants Simon Cowell's Seat

1/18/2010 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

La Toya JacksonLa Toya Jackson is next in line to fill Simon Cowell's shoes on "American Idol" -- that's if La Toya Jackson has anything to do with it.

We're told MJ's sister and former "Idol" producer Nigel Lythgoe cozied up at a housewarming party for Kathy Hilton in Bel Air recently -- before Simon broke his big news -- and the topic came up of La Toya possibly guest-judging on the show.

But now that Simon's out of the picture, La Toya wants more.

We spoke to her and she tells TMZ: "I would LOVE to be a judge on 'American Idol.' I would love to have a chance for the public get to know the real me. I would be thrilled."

In other news: there's a "real" La Toya Jackson.

Joe Jackson is illiterate    

OH PLEASE GET OVER YOUR HATRED OF SONY! The people to hate are the Jackson family who didn't help Michael when they should have/could have...They had control over him for a long time and he has always been troubled, tormented, and the object of abuse. He could have been helped as a child or as a teenager!
Send your own money to Haiti or give to an organization involved in the effort. Don't try to impact what SONY does with their money!

Michael left 20% of his money to Charity. If you feel that he should give to Haiti, write a letter asking Branca and MacLain to donate from the 20% or ask katherine to give some of the 700,000 dollars she got back from the furniture deposit or the over 100,000 dollars per month she presently receives from the Estate. Dont try to bully SONY. SONY is not the enemy here. Conrad Murray, Joe Jackson, and the Jackson vultures who didn't help Michael when they could have, are the enemy.
