Katherine & Joe Jackson Do 'Oprah'

10/11/2010 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine and Joe Jackson sat down with Oprah Winfrey this weekend to tape a segment for O's show ... and TMZ has the first photos.

As we first reported, production trucks for Oprah's show were parked outside the Jackson compound in Encino for the better part of Saturday. In the photos, Oprah can be seen meeting with several family members and getting the tour of the house.

We're told the interview focused heavily on Michael Jackson (duh) -- talking about his life, his kids and the book Katherine put together about his life.

No word yet on when the episode will air.

So Oprah does another episode, I'm not getting what LisaMarie has to do with this thread. Anyway, God bless Michael Jackson's soul may he rest in Peace and Harmony, Lord knows he deserves at least that after life. He sure was abused in more ways than one from certains members of his family, the media and the world. Love you Michael, missing you, in my heart forever!

Michael was effed up because of these two.
And now his family is trying to make money off
his death as they did in his life. They should be
ashamed of themselves.

The only thing Debbie Rowe did was love Michael Joe Jackson unconditionally.

So who worked around MJ or had close ties will do whatever they can to urn a dime off the King of Pop. Ms Jackson meaning his mother has been trying to promote her book for over a year now. There money I am sure it tied up in various things so she has to find new MJ fans who may be interested in her book. It is still a very sad situation for the Jackson Family as well as the world who loved and adored MJ. I am a little confused with why Lisa Marie wants to talk now about MJ when she didn't even attend his funeral or have anything to say prior. Maybe that is how she grieves over death and for that we must give her that privacy and respect. I just hope she isn't doing the Oprah show for more fame.

Debbie Rowe gave Michael Joe Jackson what he wanted which Lisa Marie Presley wouldn't do for Michael. Michael paid Debbie handsomely for giving him what he so desperately wanted in life and that was children. If any woman in this world that was with Michael, still loves him, that would be Debbie Rowe. Not that glorified whore Lisa Marie.

Why are we still talking about them? Honestly, what more is there to say? It makes me sick that they continue on in the media...let Michael rest in peace, take care of his children and deal with your issues privately.

OMG WHAT are you doing Katherine talking to Oprah? This can't be for money? I know I am not the only one upset with this situation. Katherine is probably (we can only hope) trying to do everything and anything to clear up the negative accusations about Michael. The world will be watching this interview without a doubt. It sickens me reading all Michael's so called "friends" supposedly writing books about him. "Money everything for the money! LMP and her horrible mother and their interview with Oprah was a disgrace. But it showed "their true colors" Shallow very shallow spoiled etc. etc. Too many "situations" happening lately concerning MJ ....wonder what is REALLY going on?

To all of the people with negative comments towards the Jackson family:

What would Mike think if he heard your thoughts or read your statements regarding the people he loved? How dare any of you say ANYTHING regarding his family? How dare any of you say ANYTHING about Lisa Presley (remember, he didn't even want to hurt her feelings)? So, think about it....because you believe he is deceased, this gives you a free pass to "trash" the people in his life? So, unless you were ever invited to his birthday or funeral.....maybe you should just keep your "OPINIONS" of MJ's loved ones alone :)

Much Love,

STFU Chris..MJ himself STRONGLY disliked some in his family. He knew them for what they are...backstabbers & money hungry.

Ask Randy Jackson why MJ's bodyguard pulled a gun on him to get him off of MJ's property? MJ stayed away from most of his family. There are fans who had more access to MJ than his family, because they all kept badgering him for MONEY.

people in huge numbers have been asking oprah for years to have a jones or ton mesereau on.she ignores their requests.
if joe and katherine on on to tell people they want justice for their son, i think it is stupid but that is their business.

but if that is that junk book they put out, in oprahs hands that i have to say i am not too impressed.
they are not broke at all.
they have other kids like janet that can help them financially.
do they always have to go back to their original meal ticket.?
if they dont realize how negative oprah wasregarding their son , then they just werent paying attn.and that makes me wonder y his fans would know oprah dissed him and they would still show her face...poor michael getting used by one and all again. it is truly sickening

The most interesting and informative interview would be with Nanny Grace. This woman spent 17 years in Michael's inner-circle. She definetely knows all. The pay-off must have been huge. I heard she is in Haiti doing humanitarian work.
