Katherine Jackson wants the judge to know ... she's a competent guardian for Michael Jackson's children -- and to prove it she spelled out the details of her strange journey to Arizona last month. Question is ... are you buying her NEW version of the story?

Plus, Miley Cyrus became the latest victim of "swatting" -- we'll explain how cops are trying to catch the creep who falsely reported an armed hostage situation at Miley's house.

And, is Jessica Simpson's weight loss program working? The latest shots of Jess sparked a battle in the news room ... over her figure, and her fashion choices.

Who has custody of the Child Support and did she have permission to take the kids to Florida last week? If she did not have permission will the judge slap her with a fine for contempt of his orders as he said the kids could not leave the state without the courts permission.

bummer, Harvey is not back! this girl Martini bores me senseless. is it just me or are most of TMZ’s staff like meth dealers or bag boys and cashiers at the grocery store? it is as if Charles, lawyer dude, Josh, and Mike are the only sober ones…which makes it a car wreck to watch. and the cajones of Harvey to act like a victim of life, when he humiliates celebrities for a living…Caraazy!

That watch on my arm was borrowed from Flava Flav. Does it make my arms look thinner?

So her current sworn declaration actually matches exactly what I read on the Internet in the first place, when this whole family drama became news. Everybody kept saying, the sources are lying. However, it looks like first reports were exactly right. The judge is being very lenient. And in cases of kidnapping, like this surely is, it is probably up to the DA to bring charges, and they haven't gotten involved at all. I believe the judge will have put layers of safeguards into this new agreement that will provide more protection for the children and the money. It's probably not just a simple matter of Katherine and TJ sharing custody with one acting if the other is out of reach, or needing to agree on things. I believe there is more that will preserve Katherine's image of dignity as the grandmother and guardian while rendering her powerless and even if she is incapacitated again by those thugs she gave birth to, the MJ3 will be totally safe. The judge hasn't seemed to be as gullible as Katherine has been.

Katherine is a nice lady, however, she is easily manipulated by her kids because of her age. She should not have daily, active custody of the children.
