Michael Jackson's Children May Star on Reality Show

by at . Comments

The family of the late Michael Jackson is reportedly at odds over whether his three children should star in an upcoming A&E reality show about the famous family.

The buzzed-about program will reportedly include Michael's kids - Prince I, 12, Paris, 11, and Prince II (Blanket), 7, although not everyone's happy about it.

Count eldest sister Rebbie Jackson, 59, who has refused to be in the series (called The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty, set to air in December) among the detractors.

Rebbie, who has been rumored to be a potential guardian for the three children now and down the line, along with her mother Katherine Jackson, "feels Michael would be rolling in his grave if he knew his kids would be on this show," says a source.

Given that Michael fiercely guarded the children's privacy and raised them with the hope they would lead the normal life he never had, she's probably correct.

While youngest sister Janet Jackson, 43, is on board, mom Katherine, who the kids are currently living with "is just going along with things," a source continues.

Still, one of the creators of the program - which will be either five one-hour episodes or 10 half-hour episodes - says the entire family shines on the series.

"We have 23 cast members with the last name Jackson," executive producer Jodi Gomes said. "They've done a great job opening up about losing a brother."

In addition to coping with the loss of their father, the children have all been the subject of paternity rumors since he passed away. Should they be left alone?

Should Michael Jackson's children be on a reality show?


LOVE starts with a SMILE , grows with a KISS, and END WITH Tears


Blanket luks like michael so cute and prince and paris r nice lukn 2 xx


Dear Paris, You're beautiful and sweet! You have a good heart like your Daddy, I can tell. He would probably want you to just enjoy your childhood! There's plenty of time to think about a career leter. You may decide you want to be a doctor later, or a scientist, or anything you want to be!! How about a missionary??
Love to you and your brothers!!!


I think that if MJ is really gone and in Heaven he would realize that things are a lot different then he thought they were. God says we should not fear. His protection of his children came from fears he had. He made it to stardom, why deny his children the same privelege. Many actors and actresses children have come to stardom and I appreciate that. I only think that we should learn a severe lesson about being kind and understanding to those who risk their reputations by being in the limeligth. They give a lot to our joy on earth I think we should appreciate that. Then they won't have any reason to fear.


i think paris is relly pretty and yea they should get there own realty show and prince he is smart and cool blanket is cute small gifted


Thank god that's not happening


To be honest I don't think this is the time for the children to be exposed to this. They just lost their father and that is hard enough for them right now. Let them take time to really grief. The boys seem to be going threw alot so don't put them threw anymore. There is going to come a time when those children will make there own decision to talk about their father,it's just not now. For Paris let her grief as well... i vote no not at this time. in the future than yes


MJ would roll over in his grave, these poor kids have been through enough without people wanting them to star in reailty program


is everything becoming a reality tv show now?? im so freakin sick of them expolting kids!!! its just sad!


those poor kids!
