The Jackson Family Twitter Tree, An Exercise in Boredom

So I was looking at Randy Jackson’s twitter this morning and realized he was suddenly only following one person, guess who? Janet. Since Tito jumped ship from the kidnapping team, Tito is the only member of Team Greed who is following any non-kidnapper siblings. Randy and Janet only follow each other. Tito and Jackie follow all the siblings with an active twitter.  Marlon does not follow Jermaine. La Toya doesn’t follow Janet, Randy, or Tito.  Paris doesn’t follow, Randy, Jermaine, Janet, or Jackie. Prince doesn’t follow Marlon, which may just be an oversight, trust me it’s hard to keep them all straight and see who is missing from whose follow page.

Anyway, I was in need of a mind distracting puzzle and this is what I chose. Looks like Randy and Janet are likely the final two members of the rebel militia. Click through to see who follows and doesn’t follow who on twitter. Note: The Jacksons followed by each person are listed in order of most recently added to the first one added.

Jackson Family Drama: Randy is Tweeting, and Janet’s Motivations are Revealed

Randy Jackson is back on twitter linking to this blog saying this is why he is worried about his mother. Howard Weitzman, on the the attorneys for the state has sent the following statement to TJ Jackson as co-guardian of the kids regarding the whackadoodle faction of the Jackson family.

“Given the circumstances of the last two weeks, and in order to protect the children and Mrs. Jackson, the Executors believe that it would not be appropriate to allow the following individuals to enter the residence or its grounds and we instruct the security to preclude the following from entering the residence or the grounds: Randy Jackson and any of his children, Janet Jackson, Rebbie Jackson and any of her children, Jermaine Jackson, his wife and any of his children, Janice Smith, or anyone else who was involved in the recent events that led to Mrs. Jackson’s separation from and inability to communicate with Michael’s children, or any agents or representatives of any of these individuals,” There will be no other security or drivers allowed on the property except those employed by the Estate of Michael Jackson. Joe Jackson is precluded from entering the property. Howard Mann who is in litigation against the Estate and is working with the Jackson siblings that wrote the “letter” should also not be allowed on the premises.”

Randy considers this a nefarious plot by the estate to endanger Katherine. Dude, the people listed as being unwelcome on the property are the people that kidnapped her last week. How is this unreasonable?  Janet needs to come take your iphone.

Today the New York Post has a lengthy article written by Stacey Brown, a longtime friend of the Jackson family, that claims a Jackson sibling as a source. That sibling attempts to explain why Janet is on the wrong end of this mess. Again, it’s a money issue.  Apparently, just like Michael, Janet doesn’t want to have to support the other family members either.  See the very interesting excerpts below. Continue reading

Adrienne Maloof’s Husband Paul Files for Legal Separation

Is this even really news?  Didn’t Brandi make some comment at the reunion about Adrienne’s marriage being…I forget how she put it but she made a comment that implied that Adrienne’s marriage was …less than ideal. Just from watching the show, you never see Adrienne being affectionate toward Paul. She seemed to have at best a cold indifference to him. Rumors are all over the Internet that Paul and Adrienne have an open marriage.  There are all sorts of marriages in this day and age. Particularly in marriages that have financial entanglements that are difficult to tease apart.  With Paul filing, it says to me that perhaps one of his other relationships has become emotionally committed and he wants a more traditional sort of marriage with a deeper emotional component.

Adrienne recently went all Taylor Armstrong on Brandi for bad mouthing her on twitter by getting her lawyer to send a cease and desist letter to Brandi.  For the most part Brandi is just repeating the rumors circulating that Adrienne and Paul’s marriage was not a traditional marriage. A few months ago Brandi accused Adrienne of planting false stories about her.  Adrienne apparently made Brandi the target for all the conversations going on in their hood. Everyone is entitled to have whatever mutually agreed upon situation they’d like with their spouse. But people will find out eventually, and you can’t control what others say about your arrangement with lawyers and intimidation. Refusing to travel or film with your cast is not a good look either. Especially, when the other person who followed that path this season was Taylor Armstrong.

Adrienne is now saying that she has to do what is best for the kids. I would think it would have been best not to mention them at all, rather than make it seem they are the cause for the divorce. In fact, I would not have suggested making a statement to Radar Online, or any other media source. Taylor just made a statement that her daughter is happier since her father’s suicide, and now Adrienne is saying that she is divorcing for the sake of her children? These two must have really gotten close while the rest of the cast was in Paris. They are like two peas in a pod all the sudden.

One thing is for certain, this will be a long an complicated divorce. The Maloof side of the investments have been losing money and in disarray for a couple of years. I don’t know what Paul has a stake in but he’s going to need to do some legal maneuvering to get out from under the investment losses. Perhaps that is why Adrienne agreed to let him file. The 50/50 divorce rule in CA applies to debt as well as assets.

Kile Glover Laid to Rest in Atlanta This Morning

Kile Glover, son of Tameka Foster and Ryan Glover was laid to rest this morning following a service at Wieuca Baptist Church. The arrangements were made by Willie A. Watkins funeral home. The service was a top of the line production that would have made Phaedra Parks proud. Hundreds of mourners attended the service in formal attire. The casket was removed from the church in a processional that included trumpeteers.  Pictured left in a gray suit, is Kile’s father Ryan.  Tameka Foster can be seen behind him with her surviving children. Kile was 11 years old.

Nene Leakes and her Boo Gregg returned from LA on the redeye to attend the funeral this morning. Cynthia Bailey and hubby Peter were also said to be in attendance.  This surprises me. I would have expected Kandi and Phaedra to attend. So far I have no confirmation of that.  Update: Phaedra was there. I am not surprised given her obsession with funerals.

Randy Jackson Done Lost His Everlovin’ Mind, Y’all

Randy has been tweeting for the past few days like a mad man. In his latest twitlonger complete with number points, he claims that the Estate is trying to isolate Katherine from her family so that they can kill her.  Also that the estate is using the media to spin the family drama. Oh and also that the bad people around Michael are the ones the estate is trying to keep around Katherine.  Um Randy, that would be you. You and your three siblings are the ones that took Katherine to the Arizona desert and holed her up with no contact with the outside world for ten days. You are the one that sent the quackadoodle doctor out to diagnose Katherine with…the need for isolation away from the children she is raising. You are the one feeding stories to X17 that make no sense and that no one believes. That’s all on you, Randy. If anyone is trying to kill your mother, it’s YOU.

Meanwhile, thanks to you kidnapping your mother, Randy, an investigator has been sent to the school to pull Paris, Prince and Blanket out of their classes to be individually interviewed about who they feel comfortable living with so the judge can decide what to do about Katherine since you finally got her home after a nearly day long ride presumably on a horse and buggy across three states. Good job, Randy. Now the kids school day isn’t even protected from this ridiculous family feud.


I never thought I’d be typing this, Randy, but listen to La Toya and just shut up. She is right, you are dragging the Jackson family name through the mud. You should be aware that your family name was not particularly pristine before you began this vendetta. Y’all get all excited that Paris tweets that her grandmother is missing, and yet how many stories have you put on  X17? How many Good Morning America interviews have you granted?  Newflash: your spin on this story isn’t flying with anyone.

It seems that Katherine has agreed to let TJ do the heavy lifting when it comes to raising the kids and Katherine can be a co-guardian in charge of being a nurturing grandmother. Why does that bother you so much Randy? All the parties involved are in agreement, what’s it to you?

In other news, your ridiculous stunts have now made there was to Conrad Murray in solitary confinement. He’s added Katherine to his visitation list because he thinks she might need a friend.  Sure, he sorta kinda killed Michael, but he’s still a step above you. You are trying to kill your own mother. So go back and read your twitlonger again, Randy and replace the names of all the people you are accusing  of things, with your own name.

Richard Hinds To Be Tried as an Adult in Tokyo

Two preliminary court proceedings were held in Tokyo this week. On Thursday, the family of Nicola Furlong, including her parents and her sister, attended court to give  victim impact statements. Nicola’s father gave the statement to the court outlining the tragic impact Nicola’s death has had on their lives. When Andrew Furlong gave his address to the court the defendant, Richard Hinds, was seated well in front of him with his back to the courtroom and family. The family did not come face to face with the defendant.

On Friday, the court made the decision to try Hinds as an adult, despite being considered a minor, at age 19, under Japanese law. If found guilty, the maximum penalty under the adult court system will be life in prison, as opposed to five years for a minor. In addition to the much greater penalties, the court proceedings in adult court will be much more open giving access to the public and media. The video above shows the parents positive response to the ruling as well as pictures of the hotel where the death occured and the courtroom. I’ll keep you updated as I find out new information on the case.
