Air Date: November 8, 2010 – Talking To Michael Jackson’s Mom

After Oprah shares her once upon a time crush to Ms. Jackson’s son Jackie, the interview turns toward Michael. The interview quickly turns to tears when Ms. Jackson looks at a childhood picture of young Michael. He would always tease and play jokes on his brothers.

Oprah talks about how her and Michael disagreed on showing his adolescence pictures. Oprah says, Michael did not want them shown during their 1993 interview while Oprah felt  it was a good idea. Ms. Jackson recalls how Michael felt about his physical appearance prior to any plastic surgery, “I’m just so ugly.” Oprah asks, “What did you think?” This question is in reference of Michael getting his nose job. She says, the nose would make him happy.

What did you think when Michael said he was marrying Lisa Marie Presley? Ms. Jackson says, “It was a surprise to me.” Lisa Marie never met Ms. Jackson prior to getting married. When Oprah mentions her recent interview with Lisa Marie Presley, Oprah says she really understands now how Lisa loved Michael. Ms. Jackson agreed Lisa Marie really did love him. (Clearing the rumors from years past that the couple’s marriage just might have been a PR stunt.)

June 25th was a shock and the worst day of her life. The day Pop Icon Michael Jackson passed away. Ms. Jackson says, the doctor told her that Michael was gone after she arrived at the hospital. (She also says, Michael had already passed before she had received the call from the hospital.) While sitting across from Oprah Ms. Jackson’s eyes fill with tears as she talks about this tragic day.

Oprah asks about the kids since Ms. Jackson says Michael’s three children were in a separate room at the hospital when she found out about her son’s death. My eyes soon began to swell as Michael’s mom reveals the moments and actions of Michael’s only daughter Paris. Ms. Jackson shares Paris wanted to go with him.”Daddy I can’t make it without you. I want to be with you.” Ms. Jackson tells Oprah this was the first she had heard he was taking propofol.

For a brief segment conversation turns to the days of Michael Jackson’s highly publicized trial in 2005 where Michael was facing accusations of molesting a child. Ms. Jackson says, “He used to trust people. His problem was he trusted too much. And after that trial he did not trust anybody.”

“Why didn’t he take care of my child. Why did he leave the room. You know. And why did he give that to him? It’s very dangerous -why did you do it?” These are the words Ms. Jackson says, she would want to tell Doctor Conard Murray.

Oprah lands an exclusive interview with Lisa Marie Presley. They talk in England without a studio audience about Michael Jackson and her famous father Elvis.

Lisa and Michael were married for 1.5 years and she did not have contact with him for a decade before his death. Although, Lisa is very guarded she does share a few intimate details.

Oprah asks the questions we all wanted to know.

  • The marriage union between Lisa and Michael was true love not a PR stunt.
  • Lisa says she never saw Michael abuse any children in her presence.
  • Lisa is trying to make sense of why she had to go through her fathers death and Michael’s. She wonders what is the higher power trying to teach her. It was painful the first time and then she says she had to go through it again.
  • Lisa says, Michael want to have kids with her but she was cautious.
  • She explains during the relationship with Michael she experienced her highest highs and lowest lows.
  • She also shares at the end of their marriage she felt Michael was taking drugs.

Honoring Michael:
