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.

Air Date: October 7, 2010

This show is all about women dealing with their once upon a time husband cheating on them with another man. One women is making headlines after winning her lawsuit against her ex-husband who infected her with HIV. Bridget shares details of her marriage, landmark court case against her husband and her life feelings. She never thought he was cheating although she recalls one time feeling jealous of one of his male friends. Things progressed when she found x-rated emails of her ex to another man. This was after they were both diagnosed with HIV. The worst part was her ex let her believe she was the one who gave him HIV.

Next, Oprah invites a guest from 2004, J.L. King on the show. Then, he said he was not gay, but told views he did have sex with men. Now, he says he is gay.  J.L. King first revealed to Oprah viewers in 2004 that the DL or down low is used for relationships where one partner is cheating on their spouse with the same-sex partner.

Air Date: September 29, 2010

Oprah plucks a universal message from her guest Lisa Bortz that people just want to be loved. Guest Lisa Bortz said, “I don’t need his approval. I just need his love.” Bortz was talking about how she didn’t want her dad’s approval of her relationship with her transgender partner Christine McGinn but wants his love. The couple agreed that they do feel Bortz’s fathers love towards each of them as well as their two children despite his political views. Bortz and McGinn were invited on the show to discuss their real life modern family unit, which I’m sure is like any other family raising twins. It just so happens that Christine McGinn was born as male and before his surgery took fertility precautions by preserving his sperm.

The hit television show Modern Family inspired Oprah show creators to find a diverse family unit. Oprah tells her audience I can say this for the first time on the the show, “Here is a mother who has fathered her own children!”

To lighten things up, the cast and crew of Modern Family makes an appearance. Of course, each of the cast members are loving every moment that they are living out their dream of being on Oprah!  Oprah is such a fan of the show that she even offers up her acting talent. She suggests, she could add more diversity by being their black neighbor, since after all her show is ending soon.

Two of the three power house Judd women could be the most honest famous guests to appear on Oprah EVER. Wynonna and Naomi lay out their mother-daughter relationship once again on their most recent interview which aired Tuesday, September 14th. I must confess that I’m a HUGE fan of Wy, Naomi and Ashley Judd! So, this post is nothing but a big love fest from this Judd Head!!!
