Jackson Family Drama




There is some drama at the Jackson's home:

(Paris is tweeting some of the drama at www.twitter.com/ParisJackson )

·     From Katherine Jackson’s lawyer.
·     "Yesterday afternoon certain Jackson family members ambushed Katherine Jackson's home after their vehicle tore security gates on the tails of the SUV containing Michael Jackson's children,"
·     "After exiting their vehicles, Jackson family members ran up to Michael's children as they yelled and began to aggressively grab at the cell phones in their hands.
·    "The children were forced to temporarily leave their home and taken to a safe location.
·     "An altercation ensued shortly thereafter and law enforcement arrived at the scene."
·     "Following the incident, it was learned that one of the family members who was part of the ambush admitted that a plan has been in place for the last three years to remove Katherine Jackson from her home and her beloved grandchildren.
·     "Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson have not heard from their grandmother since she left their home nine days ago to attend a series of her sons' concerts on their Unity Tour. She never made the shows.
 "Last week, they banded together with fellow siblings to challenge the validity of Michael's will (which left everything to his children under the care of Katherine and completely excluded his brothers and sisters) in an attempt to oust the current executors of Michael's estate."


 
 
No one can get ahold of Katherine – she is eith with one of her kids – or under the care of a doctor.
 
Paris has been tweeting the whole thing

New shows coming to NBC

-"Go On": A sitcom starring Matthew Perry as a "miserable sportscaster" who returns to work after losing his wife in a car accident.

--"The New Normal": A sitcom about a gay male couple and their surrogate. The woman is a "Midwestern waitress and single mother with a checkered past." Justin Bartha from "The Hangover" plays one of the gay dudes . . . and it was created by Ryan Murphy, the guy behind "Glee".

--"Animal Practice": A comedy about a male veterinarian in New York, whose ex-girlfriend is put in charge of the animal hospital he works at. It stars Justin Kirk from "Weeds".

--"Guys with Kids": A sitcom about three men in their 30s who just became fathers, but are still desperately "trying to hold on to their youth." Jimmy Fallon created the show, and it stars Jesse Bradford from "The West Wing", Anthony Anderson from "Law & Order", Jamie Lynn Sigler from "The Sopranos" and Tempestt Bledsoe from "The Cosby Show".

--"Save Me": A comedy starring Anne Heche as a woman who almost dies after choking on a sandwich. When she's revived, she realizes she now has "a direct line to God."

--"1600 Penn": A comedy about a U.S. President and his family, starring Bill Pullman as the President, and Jenna Elfman as the First Lady. NBC describes it as, quote, "'Modern Family' meets 'The West Wing'."
(--Bill also played the President in "Independence Day".)

--"Next Caller": A sitcom starring Dane Cook as a foul-mouthed satellite radio DJ, who "is forced to share his show with a chipper NPR feminist."

--"Revolution": A drama from "Lost" creator J.J. Abrams about a post-apocalyptic world where there's no modern technology.

--"Chicago Fire": A drama about the firefighters and paramedics of a Chicago firehouse. It was created by Dick Wolf, the guy behind "Law & Order", and the cast includes Jesse Spencer from "House", and David Eigenberg from "Sex and the City".

--"Do No Harm": A drama that's a play on the “Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde” story. It stars Steven Pasquale from "Rescue Me" as "a gifted neurosurgeon who has an alter ego with a dark side."

--"Infamous": A drama about an FBI agent who investigates the death of a "wealthy socialite and notorious party girl." Everyone thinks it was an overdose, but he thinks it's a homicide.

--"Hannibal": A drama inspired by Thomas Harris' Hannibal Lecter books . . . "Silence of the Lambs", "Red Dragon", "Hannibal", and "Hannibal Rising". It's about an FBI agent who teams up with Hannibal to solve crimes . . . not realizing that he's a killer.

--"Stars Earn Stripes": A reality show like "Dancing with the Stars", where celebrities compete in "real military exercises." There's no word on a cast yet.

--"Howie Mandel's White Elephant": It is what it sounds like . . . a game show inspired by White Elephant, the holiday gift-swapping game.

--"Ready for Love": A dating competition that takes "three impossibly handsome grooms," and puts three matchmakers in charge of scouring America to find wives for them. It sounds a little like a cross between "The Bachelor" and "American Idol".

--"Surprise with Jenny McCarthy": A variety show hosted by Jenny McCarthy, where she "gives people surprises of a lifetime."
