Jackson Brothers Getting Reality Show


Before Michael Jackson died his brothers filmed a one-hour reality show pilot and pitched it to A&E. The show was supposed to feature a Jackson 5 reunion of sorts, though Micheal never agreed to do it. They say the brothers weren't even in contact with Mike and had only seen him for a few minutes at their parents 60th wedding anniversary earlier this year.
A&E wasn't interested then, but they are now. They've greenlit the brothers to shoot more episodes showing how they're coming to grips with their brother's death and dealing with their lives without him.

Let me say I mean no disrespect to Michael but if I could put a stick up his butt and bring him back to life I would. Anything to keep these aholes (Joe Jackson included) from making one thin dime.

where's my stimulus? said...

I bet they shoot most of the shows at Katherine's house....

Just when you think the Jackson Family (except Janet and Katherine) couldn't stoop any lower...News Flash MJ was out of their lives before he died, cuz he knew what a bunch of money-hungry heathens he was related to...smdh

I'm getting sick and tired of these money hungry bastards they know goodness well That Michael didn't even fool up with them, just trying to make a dime off that man's name.

And you know they don't want that picture shown with their original noses and natural hair!

Does Jermaine have all rights to this too?
Are we going to see Randy changing tires as a mechanic? Or was that Marlon?

Good grief.

i would watch a show featuring joe jackson, he is a trip.

They came up with the idea before Michael died. They just wanna eat. Let them do what they have to do to survive.

So I quess that's why Jermammy is out looking at 15 mil condos, he doesn't have enough to eat. SMDH.

The Jackson brothers and their father seem to be coping with their grief pretty well.

You can see some of the shots now. Most mentioning Michael and crying crocodile tears and showing hightlights of the show...uh....memorial. These idiots are a real piece of work. I can certaily see why Michael kept his distance. Too bad thos around him didn't mean him any good either.

Carol said...

Jeraisin is certainly looking forward to this. What an opportunity for him to keep his greasy dented ugly mug in the camera. Yet another chance for him to show off his 'performance' of Smile. Don't think I will watch.

MSLADY504 said...

I could give to shits in a bucket what the Jacksons are doing at this point.. Im sick of everything... All I wanna know is why Randy in none of the family photos?

shitorsugar said...

...let the games...begin!

Even if we all don't wanna admit it, that'll be a rating bonanza. YT will be tuning in.

RIP Michael J. Jackson, in spite of Joseph and Jermaine's greedy ass.

Anonymous said...

Payback is a MUTHA. The brothers blamed Michael for sabotaging their various reunion projects over the years, sooooo...now that he's DONE, they're making $$$$ and feeling like it's poetic fucking justice.

Oh, and Sara@11:28AM: That information should only be shared with your therapist(s).

Maybe this will be the beginning of the death of reality TV? I know I'm down to see dat shit die, so "lights, camera, JACKSON."

Michael got tired of carrying the load of his sorry ass brothers. He was tired of being used by them to bring forth revenue. Even in death however, these lame ducks are using him.

Anonymous said...

Michael footing the bill for these leeches even in death.
So sad Michael's family only saw him as a CASH COW.

Pretty Girl said...

Sad just sad. They are going to beg Katherine to let the kids come over to some house or take them out for ice cream just to garner more ratings. I agree, they will be trying to spend time at Kat's house.That explains why Joe is pushing Bhatt as well, claiming he was Michael's son. sad

The Prince of Know Where? said...

I think it's wrong to criticize the Jackson boys for this-they pitched the show BEFORE Michael's death. A&E should be criticized for attempting to capitalize on MJ's death, not the Jackson boys. Furthermore, 11:32 called them money-hungry, every one of us gets up and goes to work in the morning-we aren't money-hungry? What are we going for, the water-cooler conversation?

Come on people. I'd go back to A&E and re-negotiate a contract so lucrative my family wouldn't have to work again 'til the year 3009 . No since trying to be charitable in a capitalist society.

Both A&E and the Jacksons are capatalizing off of Michael's passing. They could have turned down the proposal out of respect for Michael and the family. I know everyone has got to make a buck, but damn. A&E are not solely to blame. I agree with whoever mentioned about the kids having cameos in the show. If I were Katherine I would not allow it.

The Prince of Know Where? said...

@1:49-Don't ever mix compassion with business. One is a science, the other is an emotion and never should the 'twain meet. When they do, it most often ends in disaster.

I bet any number of you would accept a multi-million dollar contract from A&E if they offered to do a show about you grieving over the loss of a loved one. Stop pretending to be all pious-most of us do a lot worse for a lot less $$$.

Oh, the hypocrisy.

Bee Gee said...

Prince, I think the running theme here is that these clowns are fake as a 3-dollar bill, fam. I agree with that theme. If they appeared to genuinely love this cat....

nah hold up

...if they appeared to even KNOW Michael Jackson, I wouldn't have a thing to say about them gettin' a lil paper while they mourn their brother. Hell, I bet the average person on RWS knows Mike just as much (or little) as his distant ass brothers did.

Fuck'em.

NubianGoddez said...

SMH these trife kneegrows need to find a real job. what a parasitic family.

The Prince of Know Where? said...

Every one else is making money off MJ's death and we're focusing on these dudes?

And this is worse than us selling crack to our own people?

We need to open our eyes to our own hypocrisy.

Bee Gee said...

Prince, cuz "these dudes" are supposedly his own flesh and blood. His brothers.

Anonymous said...

These bastards are still eating off of their brother MJ name, no wonder he named the tour This is it.......this is just SAD!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Sory, but you are wrong on that one 'Prince'. Everyone doesn't have a price. There is no way and no amount of money could be offered to me to exploit a loss. That bit of advice you shared should be given to the brothers.

NAA said...

Prince - Just a couple of years ago Jermaine was ready to do a tell-all to make money off of MJ. Now this?

We expect it from other parasites. But brothers and immediate family?

Anonymous said...

^^^Exactly. I was just about to mention that. I also recall that lame song he made about Michael called Word to the Bad. I guess he was hoping for something out of that fiasco. But, all it showed was his jealousy. He is definitely going to be a major part of this reality series babblin' about absolutely nothing and, of course, trying to gain something using Michael's name.

AnonMoron67 said...

I can't believe this. Family n9ggatry at it's finest...

Anonymous said...

This shit just gets messier and messier with this family. Have they no shame at all? I would never make money off the loss of my deceased family member, even if I didn't agree with them in life. There's other ways these sorry losers can support themselves and this crap goes beyond just tryna make a living. They rode off of Michaels coat tails and generosity for years, jealous over his success and angry because he wanted to do his own thing without them. They are grown men, with kids of their own and can't even stand on their own 2 feet.

I'm disgusted to the umpteenth power with those mofos. They are showing the world just how dysfunctional they truly are and that their brother was just a dollar sign. YT is just lovin it, all they gotta do is dangle a carrot in front of these hooligans. These bastards should've had enough respect to remain silent, stay outta the public eye and grieve for their brother like he meant something.

I CALLED this one when LaToya had a couple of posts up (Trifling-n-Sad...)

And @theprince... is dead-on about the Business aspects of this kind of mess (Can't be IGNORED) but following others BEFORE THEM whose Very Reckless and Serious LACK OF Sensibility isn't something I WOULD personally condone in any shape or form...

BUT I'm a different kind of cat altogether !!!
My Personal LIFE and GRIEF isn't for sale for the world to see AND never will be if I have anything to say-OR-do about it (Trill)

The Jackson Family.....It's only going to get worse. They're gonna send poor janet to a psycho ward if they keep this up. She's the only one really working now, and when MJ's money runs out guess who's going to have to foot their bills?

Poor Janet. She has some sorry ass brothers trying to relive their Jackson 5 days.

Anonymous said...

I never hear anything about Jackie. He was just big. That's all...big. I mean, what type of business prospects did any of them have prior to the reality show? I just don't get this family. Mike is the cutest one in the photo.

Anonymous said...

what is wrong with earning some dough for being - not just - Michael's sibling but an ex-Jackson 5. Why are y'all blaiming these guys for wanting to earn a living. Micheal lived like a king and sabotaged all his brothers' efforts at a jackson 5 reunion. He should also take some blame for turning his back on his family. In the country of the blind the one eyed man his king. Y'all know what happens when the king dies.

Anonymous said...

usually i agree with some of prince's post but I disagree with the part about showcasing my grief. True grief is too private and hurts to much to share. The only Jacksons that have appeared publicly over and over are Joe, Latoya and Jermaine. The other ones have just chilled in the background. That lets you know who's trying to profit the most from his death. As an adult, I don't expect my brothers or sisters to take care of me unless we have reached an mutual agreement. Otherwise, I am responsible for my own well being.

Anonymous said...

Michael was born into a family that loves money, that's the bottom line. He was raised for money, not love. This isn't to say that Katherine didn't love him, but she sat there and watched her child be abused and mistreated for money and even when his instincts were screaming NO NO, she talked him into business ventures with his brothers (example the Pepsi commercial) because they needed the money.
Now in death, it continues

quesha d( o )b said...

yes, i am usually with u prince, but i can't with this. i would not sell my grief for a reality show. too personal.

Wild Safari said...

@5:38 co-sign she is torn because they are ALL her children and JOE was her husband, for better or for worse. She let Michael suffer a little so the rest could benefit. I also agree with 4:01pm. Unfortunately, I doubt we have seen rock bottom for the bloodletting.

Truth is Michael treated his brothers like crap. Now they have a chance to make some money and you clowns are mad about it?

pree315 said...

@ 5:14 Wtf are you talkin about? First michael did not sabotage shyt not 1 goddam thing THEY SABOTAGED HIM! IF ANYTHING IT WAS NOT HIS FAULT THAT HE WAS 20* more talented then them. You need to do your research my ignorant friend; because Jermaine actually went solo first and Micheal had the dammed sense enough to be creative and do his own thing which is da exact dam reason he had a four decade career. With the voice of an angel and moves that made him look like he was dancin on water. They tried but they could not be better than him ...hell everyone tried and failed Janet could also dance just like him unlike the rest she got advice from him about being in the bussiness so she had a lucrative career right up till 2001 and still did not have the same impact. Everything he tried to do with them ended up being a disaster thanks to Joe and Michael took it upon himself to remind Joe of that when he called him once again asking for money.!!You know whats really fucked up? The fact that he sittin there in a chair in all white big ass wings probably not sweatin they leeching asses because he is just that cool and he was 2 dammed nice to hurt anyone. The man couldnt hurt a fly. All I have to say is that if I were michael i would play so many practical jokes on they asses it wouldnt be funny. They would piss on themselves;the man was tired of waking up in cold sweats from nightmares about his evil ass daddy and his brothers locking him in the room with 7 prostitutes because they were determined to prove he wasnt gay. His mother was no help and janet had her own ventures. I just wish he was still here so I could see him cuss all of them out..like yall explioting my dam kids? All hell no. I Michael Joseph Jackson are about to give yall a royal ass whoopin cuz um da KOP bitches...lol swingin that hair you see jermaine n tito with penny loafers stuck up they asses at a hospital. Lord have mercy on these money grubbin corpse robbin fools I wouldnt be suprised if I open a da box and one of the jewelss from his suit was missin dayum shame. janet us initially like da only one grieving besides the kids.

7:07 these guys had a chance to make money long before now. Michael did not treat anyone like crap. He just got tired of taking care of these big ass grown ass men who should be able to provide for themselves and families. You would get tired to if someone was always riding your coattails.

Most of here are displeased at the thought of them using Michael's passing as a platform as "a chance to make some money" Disgusting and plain disrespectful. I highly doubted Michael treated his brothers like crap. That was probably the way it was seen because he no longer was carrying the load and picking up the tab.

Anonymous said...

I have to say I think Katherine was a loving and doting mom, but she was extremely passive. It was if she became part of the furniture. In Martin Bitchshir's documentary with Michael, I recall Michael saying Kate was screaming, "....you're gonna kill him! You're gonna kill him!" as Joe was beating Michael. That, to me, would have been the deal breaker. Money or not, success or not I would have left Joe or damn near killed him myself.

Man, money just make some people stupid.

Micheal had a hard time caring for all the family, their kids (Jermaine's 10 ). They could have tried and not given up but no one had the talent or drive like Mike & Janet. Janet looked so disgusted at the fake MJ tribute on BET, all she wanted to do is get the hell out of there and hasn't said one word since. It's only the boys,mama and papa Joe. I'm glad the kids have another attorney because this group is going to throw them in front of the cameras everytime they can to get ratings.

I wish Michael was still here. Why did he have go? I guess the good do die young.

Rest in Peace Michael

At the transpiring of recent events, I feel that someone hired that doctor to kill Michael. All aspects of your sales go through the roof once your dead.

I'm sorry but I got 2 say it. u know these fools r weird as hell why r they still celebrating a wedding anniversary when the marriage is clearly over.they don't even live in the same damn town.I'm just saying;}

Anonymous said...

Naw, they're almost like any other family; love each other deeply,but still have clashes and issues with one another. None of us knows Michael's relationship with them,so we can't say for certain.

However, I do wish they wouldn't do this.Reality shows just kill whatever interest you have for people,cuz it's just too much information.Takes all the mystery out of knowing about people; like watching someone you're crazy about sitting on the toilet.Not sexy and don't want to or need to know that much about anybody unless they're sick or in labor.

The Jacksons brought a lot of joy to little black girls in the 60s and 70s along with the fun of figuring out what they were like,etc.A reality show will be like finding out that Santa Claus ain't real.I'd rather remain in the dark about their real selves,the musical entertainment persona is enough for me.

No dignity in reality shows.

I am so tired of these parasites. Remember Jermaine and his brothers were going to sue Michael because they wanted him to do the family reunion b4 he did his own tour. What a bunch of losers. I thought Tito was better than that. LOSERS

Anonymous said...

Don't 4get about the book Jermaine wrote and was having published and the harsh things he said about Michael. That he was a wimp, gay and and other trash. Michael lived @home till his early or mid 20's to help out the family. When he moved to his own place. Jermaine was one of the first to say that Michael was a "fag" for moving and Michael was selfish. No, Michael was not he wanted to live and be free to live his life his way without all the pressures of his family. I thought it was a good thing when he would not allow his brothers and family just drop over whenever their pockets got low. At least Randy worked in a store and was providing for his family. He and Michael spoke but he was closest to Janet. But the talk is the Michael's Children are also getting their own Reality Show according to an article I read B4 reading this one. And Janet is on Tour so she isn't there to stop it. Janet is also trying to get custody of the children to keep them away for all the family trash. Joe said, "Michael's Children are talented and they can sing, and dance I can be their manager and take them on the road". Janet said, "No, that's not what Michael would have wanted. But if that was their choice Michael wouldn't have told them No".
I knew and luved Michael he was a great friend and will never be 4gotten EVER.
