Katherine Jackson, MJ’s Kids Visit Oprah (Recap)Published by Starr Rhett on Tuesday, November 9, 2010 at 11:00 am.
Just when it seemed like Oprah couldn’t get any more groundbreaking, she lands Katherine Jackson and Michael Jackson’s kids on her show. Yesterday in an exclusive interview, they opened up (Joe was there too) about still coping with Michael’s loss and the kids revealed some things they miss the most about their father.
Katherine said some particularly interesting things when she really opened up about his plastic surgery and Lisa Marie Presley. She said that she thought Michael Jackon’s surgery was out of control and even revealed that she went to the plastic surgeon and asked for him to stop because his nose “looked like a toothpick.” When it comes to Lisa Marie Presley, she confirmed that Elvis’ daughter was really in love with her son, adding that they eloped without even telling her about it.
Fun fact: Her first introduction to Lisa Marie was over the phone where she initially thought Michael’s then wife was a Black girl based on the way she sounded. Another interesting fact is that Katherine Jackson still does field services as a Jehovah’s Witness–that means she goes door to door trying to recruit people. (Can you imagine? lol)
As far as Jackson’s children, they have living with Katherine Jackson since Michael passed but seem to be adjusting well. Prince Michael, 13 and Paris Katherine, 12 are doing well in private school while 8-year-old Blanket is still being home-schooled (he wants to attend school next year).
