Katherine Jackson -- Lemme Sell You Some Flowers

4/28/2011 1:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson's business portfolio is continuing to blossom -- TMZ has learned Michael's mom is designing floral arrangements especially for Mother's Day.

0427_katherine_jackson_ex_launch_flower

Katherine has personally helped put together 6 different floral arrangements for a website called SendHerFlowers.com.

Sources close to Katherine tell us the deal is 100% legit -- and Katherine has been family friends with people involved in the business for years.

No word on how much cash Katherine is expected to rake in from the deal.

Don't expect the Michael Jackson estate to get involved in this endeavor ... the site never uses MJ's name or image ... and only features a photo of Katherine.

By the way -- don't forget to buy your mom something nice this year ... she brought you into this world. Respect!

Everything this woman or her family touches turns to crap. Thank God MJ's affairs are being handled by the estate lawyers for the sake of his children.

One More Chance....
-Okay, so this is great! I LOVE that Katherine is FINALLY making some moves that has NOTHING to do with using Michael's name, NOR PPB. This is how it should be, after all, she is a Celeb in her OWN right. I think maybe she took a tip from LaToya, who was the first family member to get out there under her own steam and make money with her Spokesperson gig on DWTS, and Celebrity Apprentice (not including Janet in this because we know she has her career--even if it did get a jump-start from Michael's death.) Yeah, I know she used Michael's name in almost every episode, but it wasn't to line HER pockets, it was for Charity which he would've been supportive of. As a result of her work on the show, people are much warmer toward her and her Credibility has jumped by leaps and bounds....
Too bad she got FI-YAD because Ne Ne and Trump were to WEAK to stand up to Star Jones....
Perhaps this whole thing is simply Katherine's new Attorneys trying to do SPIN control...remind people that she's loving Mother and Grandmother so they'll quit judging her and her relationship with Mann, Vaccaro and Johnson. I only hope that they get hold of that contract with Mann and figure out a way to get it squashed before she has NO REPUTATION LEFT....

At least she's using her own skill and her own name. She's probably trying to bring in some of her own money that she will have control over so she can continue to take care of her grown children and grandchildren before she dies. I don't think its personal greed on her part, just a lot of people with their hands out.

the grandkids are billionaires because curious teens rushed to buy merchandise and heavily-edited doc umentary of the melted-faced drug zombie. this woman was used to paying her deadbeat son and never could attract fans for herself.
it must be sad to her since her darling hoJoe failed to succeed with his self-promotion tour 2 days after the freak's death.

Dr. Conrad Murray Could Testify At Michael Jackson Death Trial

Dr. Conrad Murray's jury selection for his involuntary manslaughter trial stemming from the shocking death of pop superstar Michael Jackson is expected to begin on Wednesday, May 4th, and RadarOnline has exclusively learned that Dr. Murray wants to be put on the stand to testify.

It's anticipated that jury selection could take one week. The District Attorney will present evidence to the jury that backs up their claims that Dr. Murray is responsible for Jackson's death on June 25, 2009. Dr. Conrad Murray "will be playing an active role in his defense. Dr. Murray has made sure that his medical practice and patients are taken care of during the trial," a friend of Murray's tells RadarOnline.

The source also says: "Dr. Murray wants to tell his version of events the day that Michael Jackson tragically died. Dr. Murray has maintained his innocence since he was formally charged. Dr. Murray's lawyers will make the tactical decision when it's their turn to present their witnesses at the trial about whether or not to put him on the stand. Dr. Murray truly has nothing to hide, and wants the jurors to hear what he has to say."

If Dr. Murray doesn't testify at the trial, his pal tells us: "Dr. Murray would probably do an interview after the trial, if his advisors approve it, to explain his story. There is so much that the public doesn't know. Dr. Murray is hopeful that at an appropriate time, he can elaborate on misconceptions about him and his care of Michael."

If convicted of the involuntary manslaughter charge, Dr. Murray could serve up to four years in state prison.

Calls seeking comment from Dr. Murray's spokesperson weren't immediately returned.

Katherine Jackson has, in fact, loved flowers for years, so this endeavor is a good fit for her.

The interesting question is why she wants to start a business, since the Michael Jackson estate pays all of her expenses. The likely answer is that she is hoping that business will help provide for her sons (and maybe even her husband, Joe) after her death.

Michael was sick of supporting his five brothers, and he set up his will so that after Katherine is gone, they have no access to his money. Katherine is looking for some source of income for her five remaining sons, most of whom seem unable to support themselves. This the reason why Katherine keeps starting business ventures (a website, a coffee table book, etc.) and it is probably the real reason for her conflicts with the estate's executors, too.

I'm a psychologist who is writing a book about Michael Jackson. Follow my twitter feed for more info.

AND SHE IS THE LEAST SUITED TO TALK ABOUT LOVE TOWARDS NEIGHBOR GIVEN THAT SHE HAS LOVE ONLY FOR MONEY BECAUSE IF SHE HAD HAD LOVE FOR HER SON WOULDN'T HAVE EXPLOITED HIS CHILDREN WELL KNOWING HE DID NOT WANT HIS CHILDREN UNDER THE SPOTLIGHTS!!! INSTEAD SHE IS NOT ONLY EXPLOITING THEM BUT IS ASSOCIATING THEM WITH SHADY PEOPLE!!! PEOPLE WHO MICHAEL HAD SUED NOW ARE NEAR HIS CHILDREN!!! NOT TO MENTION OF HER SHAMEFUL CONTRACT WITH MANN IN WHICH SHE "FOREVER BIND" MICHAEL'S CHILDREN BECAUSE SHE KNOWS ALL THE MONEY IS GOING TO GO TO THEM!!! EVEN IF SHE HAS NOT TEH POWER SHE DID IT ANYWAY!!! THE WAY SHE IS RAISING MICHAEL'S CHILDREN IS UNFORGIVABLE AND SHE SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR NOT HAVING RESPECT FOR HER SON AND HIS WISHES FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY THAT GUIDES EVERY HER ACTION!!! KATHERINE IS THE WORST MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER!!!
