well that report says that Katherine Jackson was concerned that Oprah never contacted the family since the 93 MJ interview. that doesn't mean the family and Michael's thoughts were necessarily the same. since we don't have MJ's say on the issue, we can't know if mj thought one way or the other about no communication with the Jackson family since 93. we only know that as being the thoughts of Katherine Jackson..not necessarily Michael Jackson. and MJ's silence on the matter is not a bad thing. people can interpret silence any way they want. and Oprah chose to interpret his slience the way she wanted. but she makes the mistake of assuming that Katherine jackson's thoughts are Michael's thoughts, on this subject.

I don't think Oprah makes that assumption if you listen to her response video she says she is a professional interviewer and the interviews are business and she would never call a celebrity after an interview unless they tell her it's okay to do so. And she mentions after the interview Michael didn't say her "this was great, let's talk , let's get together , call me" etc.

I think Oprah's thoughts are more like "He was the huge super star MJ, I was the professional interviewer, He didn't want to be my friend therefore I wouldn't pressure him to be my friend"

And Oprah interviewed MJ - why would she even need to communicate with the Jacksons?

katherine probably thought that it would of been nice for Oprah to do another interview after 93,,,however...Michael didn't feel the same way.

I see. Does Katherine not know the things she said and did to Michael on her show over the years? I can see why Michael wouldn't want to talk to her.

One of Oprah producers told her 'the jacksons want to address katherine's finances." Is this the evil hand of Katherines business partner.?

I think so. It was probably to be able to say "the evil estate isn't giving me enough money". and to be clear I blame Mann for it.

I am sure Katherine knew the stuff that Oprah said and did to Michael,,,,sometimes I think that she tries to come across like she lives under a rock. There is noway that can be true. Anyone that lives in the world knows how mean Oprah was to Michael,,,,his own mother HAD to know.

just because someone disagrees with you doesn't mean they have anger issues. would you like someone to diagnose you with anger issues if you disagreed with what they had to say?

Are you joking? I have followed this thread from day one. It's been nothing but anger. The bitterness is so thick you can cut it with a knife.

that's an assumption on your part. unless they all say they hate her, or say they are bitter, than it's just an assumption. a person points out what they think about what happened. that's all that can be seen in those posts.

for someone to hold onto anger, they'd have to never have anything positive to say about anyone. or anything.including anything positive to say about Michael..or..absolutely every person that ever met him. i have heard people say they are holding onto anger and bitterness, and mean it. those are the only people who i can say, are holding onto anger and bitterness, with proof. and that's true for anyone. but how do i know that people mean what they say? how does anyone know that?

you made my point. i seperated the jacksons from Michael. she didn't. and she assumed he wasn't interested in friendship, as i have said, earlier.

Still, there's little time to celebrate. The conversation quickly turns to the real focus of the show. The Jacksons aren't just a famous family—they are a family coping with the loss of a beloved son and father. "The first thing I thought about, I have to say, was Michael Jackson and what would Michael Jackson say about his children being interviewed?" Oprah says. "And then, the question is how to do it in such a way that you're not exploiting the children."

So Oprah actually did think about what Michael would say about his children being interviewed. I think that anyone who knows anything about Michael would know that he would NOT want his kids to do an interview with Oprah or anyone else.

I did think that Oprah handled the interview with the kids well - she gave them the opportunity to give people a glimpse into the relationship that they had with their dad. But, it is certainly not what Michael would have wanted.

^^It was interesting to see Oprah and the other staff members think through what they thought Michael would have wanted. I can see how hard it is for them to be objective given the functions of their jobs, and without substituting their judgment about what'd THEY'D want with what Michael clearly said time and again, if they just researched it (which it appears they had plenty of time to do).

Without being overly negatively I'll also say I was put-off my Joe's touchy-feely behavior toward the women on the show staff, and his insistence to be on camera, which were made so much more obvious by this behind-the-scenes feature. Also in my opinion, the kids' reluctance to talk was made more apparent when I view the extra footage.

For some reason I see a lot of "Michael Jackson" in Blanket. The looks, the shyness, the all. He's almost a perfect copy of Michael Jackson the King Of Pop, not Michael Jackson the kid. I hope he'll follow his dad's steps one day and become The Prince Of Pop.

About Oprah, she's still an idiot... nothing new here.

Where can I find the extra footage?
I saw the video noirnoar posted (Thank you very much).
But is the video end when the kids show up?
Are there more footage?

I am on record saying i loved the interview. It was done respectfully. The behind the scenes show, i do not care for at all. The big GET all along was the kids not katherine.
Now, i hate that they achieved their goal. A lot of what Oprah said in the green outfit, after the fact is lip service directed at MJ fans.

Suzynyc, no one thinks less of you because you like Oprah. I welcome different opinions.
I agree with you that some of the stuff on this thread is below the belt, and we must be better.

EXACTLY!!! She thought about it but, the 'big get' was too much to pass up!:smilerolleyes: I sure wished she had answered that question she posed to herself on camera.

I did think that Oprah handled the interview with the kids well - she gave them the opportunity to give people a glimpse into the relationship that they had with their dad. But, it is certainly not what Michael would have wanted.

And anyone who thought he would've approved did'nt know Michael at all!

I can see how hard it is for them to be objective given the functions of their jobs, and without substituting their judgment about what'd THEY'D want with what Michael clearly said time and again, if they just researched it (which it appears they had plenty of time to do).

.

When I think about it sometimes I think, why should we expect Oprah to show any level of respect and care for Michael when some of his own family can't even do the same. Just like Janet, I am so indifferent to her and a bunch of other people. Just so sad it took MJ's passing for you to truly see their true colours.

Oh, and with all those persons hanging around at that shoot trying to be apart of the action......and people would have you believe Michael was the only one who had hangers-on!

Of course she does, but I believe she doesn't care about what Oprah did to Michael..Look at Rebbie going on a show with one of the hosts thinking Michael abused children....I mean Katherine is doing buisness and defending a Porn guy,putting Michael's kids into an interview with Oprah, criticizing her son TV , and doing her damn promotion of her Book with her porn guy buisness partner...She knows what she is doing, and it's just a sick situation. It's been said before, but she doesn't deserve a pass anymore, her actions have simply disgusted me. I will never defend her anymore, her actions show her true colors.

Omg, i cant stop laughing at Joe haha.. I mean the way he got into this project just a few days before it was confirmed and brought his producer of his new reality show in Japan with him.. LOL

Interesting that one of the producer said that Katherine wanted to talk about her finances. That must have been edited out or Oprah never asked her about it.

There is no hope left for Joe Jackson!:smilerolleyes:

And I have to wonder why would Katherine wanna speak on camera about her finances? people just don't normally do that or is it possible her wanting to speak on this subject had something to do with her wanting to complain further about the persons handling MJ's Estate? :scratch:

I forgot about Joe - at one point, it looked like he was trying to hug one of the female producers. She looked surprised. Did you notice that?

exactly...If Michael wanted Oprah to interview his children..he had plenty of time ti call her himself and say like.."Hey Oprah....do you want to interview my children",,,,,but seeing gas how that never happened...Oprah being the sneaky heffa that she is goes and gets an interview with Kathrine and wiggles her way into the interview with the kid. TBH....I dont think she even wanted to interview Katherine...I think the kids were her target the while time.
