Michael Jackson Justice: Thank You Latoya Jackson

God: Reconnect to Him

The Conspiracy against God is about "The Word", and the profaning of His Holy Name within us. Adam fell in the garden, breaking the direct connection to God. Jesus, the "last Adam" was a quickening Spirit, the Word made Flesh, and the only one with whom we can re-establish our relationship with God. Michael's story is still unfolding. He is the one who is, is not. But Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Many are trying to rewrite HIStory. We were given a help to instruct us. Learn more "here".

Thank You Latoya Jackson


Thank  You Latoya



I just got done watching the Piers Morgan Show (and it hurt, because it’s on CNN, LOL) and I just want to say that Latoya, You were on too late on the East Coast.

Actually I would like to say more than that but first I want to thank Micheline James.

Micheline James made it to the book signing of Latoya’s “Starting Over” book earlier this evening.  We had talked about it back and forth all week and Micheline told me that she was going to see if she could give her a hug and I told her, “You better give her one for me too!”

This afternoon, around 5pm or so, Micheline called me on my cell and told me she was standing in the basement of the book store in (whatever town she lives close to) in New Jersey.  She told me it was hot and that there were at that time about 50 people there.  It was a small bookstore and not a big town so the crowds were probably not going to get out of control.

While we talked Micheline was telling me about the gift she got for Latoya and a special one for Miss Katherine.  I’ve seen her gifts and her “decorative” skills so she didn’t have to go too much into detail.  I will let her tell you HER part of the story.  But she told me she is holding the book and she described the cover.

Anyhow, she told me “I’m going to see if I can give her a hug and I will tell her it is from both of us.”  I thanked her and told her to tell her we are all praying for her.

I told her, “Well, I was going to get the book tonight, but I want to see the interview so I will go to the bookstore and get it tomorrow . . . I don’t even know where one is down here.”

Micheline then said, “Don’t buy the book”.  I said, “Why?  Is it bad?  Will I cry?”  Micheline replied, “Just promise me you won’t buy the book.” 

I was dumbstruck for a second with my mouth in a big “O” denial when I finally GOT IT.  I said, “Micheline you didn’t!”

“Yes, I got two books here, one for me and one for you so you can have a signed copy.  Now promise me you are not going to buy the book.”

Tears.  That is just the nicest, most thoughtful thing anyone has ever done for me.  Completely and totally unselfish.

She got off the phone and right after she got back to her car, she called me to tell me how it went.  I will let her tell you that story.  She hasn’t posted here in a while because she didn’t want to get attacked, but maybe I can talk her into posting it in comments or something.



Piers Morgan

I watched the entire interview with Latoya.  My husband watched the last half of it (He was out fixing the electric fence around our garden that a deer took out last night). 

It was a good interview and it was good seeing Latoya controlling an interview.  There are a few things that struck me about the interview and I will mention them below. You can add your comments or observations if you saw the interview.

Latoya on the brothers – family life

This was sweet to hear and I expecially liked Latoya’s recount of the screaming girls and her reaction – “What are you screaming for?”  I kind of chuckled at that.  I have a brother (Named Michael, incidentally) and if he was up on stage and girls were screaming, I would probably want to have their heads examined.

Latoya on Joe Jackson –

This one bothered me, but in a good way.  I still do not understand his children calling him Joe.  I do know there are people in my life/past that have called their parents by their names instead of the title “mom” or “dad”.  But I think this bothers me because of Michael’s interview about how much he wanted to call him dad.

Latoya’s reminiscing about the time she told her father that she loved him and how his whole face changed and he turned into a little kid – That really hit me (God, I wish I could get ahold of my father!)  So I cried.  I very much loved her addition that we are all really children, no matter how old we are.

Latoya on Michael -

There was not too much here that I hadn’t heard before from all the family at one time or another.  She touched on the day Michael passed (went into more detail later) and described Michael’s reaction to their first talk after she got away from Jack Gordon.

Latoya on Jack Gordon –

This I leaned on.  It was the same story as on the Dutch T.V. interview I’ve posted before, but with a bit more detail in the Italy incident.  I know there is not a lot she can say on U.S. T.V. but I was hoping to hear her talk about how she got a Bible.  I have to remember that this is U.S. T.V.  I do want to point out one thing though.

At one time, I received a comment that Latoya was okay saying what she said about Michael under Gordon’s control, but when SHE was threatened with being forced to do a hard-core porn film she somehow found the strength then to leave.

Anyone in that mentality seems to miss the explanation that the life of MICHAEL AND JANET WERE THEATENED when she was forced to say what she said about Michael.  I hope people caught that.

Latoya on June 25, 2009 –

The story of the trip to the hospital was a little different, but perhaps that is because there was just remembered detail.  The thing that struck me the most were two pieces of information:  The children never cried again after the left their father in the hospital, and the contradiction between HER account of Michael’s health and Jermaine’s account of Michael’s health.  Yes, I wonder why.

I remember what Latoya told Micheline (which I will let Micheline tell you), so I will wait until I get the signed copy that Micheline got me (I am still stunned!  Overwhelmed . . .)  I will refrain from addressing the contradictions until I read the book.  Grrrrrrr!

Latoya on the Murderers –

What Latoya said, bringing up the 50 shows and his not wanting to do them also contradicts another sibling saying he was excited.  It was at the same time that she said he was weak.  She talked about people around him and how there was a parallel between her life and Michael’s life about how people infiltrate and control you.  I am hoping there is more to this in the book.

Overall, I do have some problems with this interview, but cannot comment on it until I read the book . . . contradictions and just unanswered questions.  There seems to be a theme to not only repair the image of the family as a unit, but also frame and reiterate that Michael was the victim of a murder, not an accident.

I had another blog to put up tonight but I will hold it for tomorrow because I want to see what emerges out of this over the next 24 hours or so. 

Latoya, I want to thank you for signing that book for me, and for giving Micheline a hug for us.  I felt it. 

God Bless Everyone and let me know if you saw the interview!

  1. I also saw the interview. Despite his tabloid past, Piers Morgan has been very respectful in his interviews with Janet Jackson, La Toya Jackson, and Kathy Hilton regarding MJ.

    La Toya may not have seen the children cry again, but others have said that it took many tears, and many weeks of therapy, for the children to arrive at the healthy place emotionally they appear to be in now. And it was wrong of La Toya to have given the impression that the children led cloistered lives when Michael was alive. They went out often without him, with Kathy Hilton, for example.

  2. Bonnie, I just loved the way you presented what happened today when I called you. So I'll pick up where you left off.

    There is no way I could have stood on that line with only one book in my hand! When I think of all you have done on this blog, when others are attacking you for what THEY should be doing - you deserve a book, Lady!

    Latoya was sitting at a red painted table and looked so lovely, dressed in an soft white suit with a stunning diamond necklace. Her hair was long, soft and flowing, and her makeup and complexion were flawless. In a word, she sparkled.

    I walked up to the table as Latoya was handed the first book to sign - my book, and she asked me to pronounce my name. When I said MICH-LEEN, she thought it was a pretty name. I said, "Latoya, I am so thrilled to meet you, you have no idea. You're a beautiful and courageous woman." She reacted so sweetly. I went on to say, "I am also one of your buddies on Twitter, MJVictory, and so is my good friend, Bonnie Cox. I promised Bonnie that I would give you a hug from both of us." Latoya smiled and said, "of course!" in the same tone you would expect of Michael. I'm telling you, Katherine children are all magical people!

    Latoya signed Bonnie's book when I told her, "this was a surprise and Bonnie is going to be so happy!" Latoya said, "that is such a lovely thing to do!" I then put a large gift bag on the table and said, "I brought a little something for you and your lovely mother, please take it." Latoya's eyes opened wide and she said, "Oh my!" One of her aides put it on the floor with some other items. I leaned forward to tell Latoya, "please make sure no one forgets the bag when you leave - there is a ring inside for your mother." Latoya seemed genuinely touched by that and gave me a reassuring, "Oh, my...don't worry, thank you!" (For those of you who don't know the connection to this ring, it has to do with a dream I had about Michael. The ring in my dream was real, and it's the same ring I gave Katherine Jackson today.)

    I asked Latoya if I could come around to her side of the table for a "group hug with Bonnie!" She said, "absolutely." She reached out to embrace me first and that felt so welcoming, because I didn't want that feeling of "invading her comfort zone." For a petite lady she gave a sincere hug - it was not superficial where you sense it's all for show and a lot of space separates you. Not that way at all.

    I pulled away from Latoya slightly, but still with my arms around her, just so I could talk to her face to face. I said, "Latoya, I want you to know how much we love you, that I pray for you, your family, and of course I always pray for precious Michael." Latoya looked at me and said, "IT'S ALL IN THE BOOK." I then added, "and thank you so much for sharing your love for Michael, because it really means the world to us. We love him so much." Latoya smiled and said, "Oh, I know you do...you're so welcome."

    I gave Latoya a final hug and said privately, "We love you, and you deserve to be happy. Thank you again, and I'll see you on Twitter!"

    I walked toward the stairs to the first floor when a couple of guys waiting in line smiled and said, "you two seemed like the best of friends," to which I replied, "We are now!"

    When I left the store I got emotional and that's when I called you, Bonnie. Latoya is the most darling person you could ever meet. And having hugged Michael's sister was like experiencing a part of him as well. She grew up with him in the same little house, played with him, suffered with him, and loved him so much. Michael's essence is all around Latoya.

    Bonnie, I love you very much and can't wait to send you the book! ((♥))((♥)) (♥))

    ........... I have to agree with this. I never saw this man before in my life, so I dont' know what kind of past he has. Where did he work before?

    Anon said - "La Toya may not have seen the children cry again, but others have said that it took many tears, and many weeks of therapy, for the children to arrive at the healthy place emotionally they appear to be in now."

    ..... Well who said that? I have only heard family members saying that the children were doing great. I have never heard anyone say that the children were upset. I have only heard Miss Katherine talk about Michael's pictures on Paris's bedroom wall. I have some observations but will keep them for now.

    Watch how interviews are done now before we jump to judge. Interviews on T.V. have a specific amount of time and get cut off in places the person being interviewed cannot always recover. They have no control over how they are cut. She said Michael kept them sheltered. Michael's life was isolated so the children were protected, period. They still played with other kids, but going to the park without an entourage? No. Things had to be scheduled.

    Personally I like the way Michael brought up his kids. The world couldn't get to them.

    We don't know that they went out "often" without Michael. I don't believe this to be true. There were too many people that wanted to get at them. But I do believe there were occurances where they could go out and were not recognized because Michael was not with them.

  6. Bonnie and Spotlight,
    You both had me in tears too. I'm not sure I could stand in front of any of Michael's family right now, without sobbing, so you did well to be so composed Spotlight!
    I will watch the interview on You Tube and await your review of the book Bonnie.
    As for Piers, he worked for The Sun and News of the World, some of the worst tabloids on the plant IMO. I will never trust that man 100%!!

  7. Micheline, Latoya is right, it is a beautiful name. I was waiting in anticipation of your recall of the book signing (I’m also a Twitter follower). Thank you so much for sharing your experience and including our dear Bonnie in such a treasured moment and keepsake. Although it was vicariously felt, I imagined embracing in a hug, and I am personally so thrilled to know your love (our love) touched the heart of Latoya. Thank you so much for all you do and your loving support … Picking up my copy of Starting Over this weekend ♥♥

    .......... I could probably stand in front of his family, but that is all I could do, LOL! I have met celebrities in the past so I THINK I would be okay. This is emotionally different though. Jack Palance was a friend of the family, John Forsythe was a surprise (I knocked on the door of the home of his brother during a sales job, LOL! He told me to "get out of that racket), and Tom Hanks . . . I didn't KNOW WHO HE WAS! (First year of "Bossom Buddies", I was stuck in New York). But lots of people that were singers or became famous as singers in C&W. Rebbie McIntyre was one of them and she wasn't that well known when I met her. Eddie Rabbitt and Crystal Gayle, Barbara Mandrell but I never got to meet Johnny Cash and I loved that man. He was my adopted grandfather.

  9. In 2005, the process for Michael definitely was devastating to him.
    But I always say, where there is evil there is also good.
    The entire Jackson family was united and it was next to Michael. LaToya was always present and his father Joe.
    I realized how many lies have been said.
    La Toya was always present and his father Joe.
    I have changed my way of thinking about this famous family.
    I hope that the book of LaToya is also published in Italy.
    I have changed my way of thinking about this famous family.

  10. Hello Bonnie,

    What a great story, you, Micheline, and Latoya. Will try to get my book this weekend. It looks to be an interesting read.

    Watch this Good Day NY interview with Latoya: http://www.myfoxny.com/dpp/entertainment/celebrity_news/la-toya-jackson-good-day-ny-20110622

    Despite the harsh, inflammatory words, Latoya held her own. How after reading the book, they couldn't tell who she said Michael named, I don't know. Deliberate, I guess; just as Latoya is deliberate. And thank you for giving me your take on the Paris Jackson situation.

    Have a lovely day :)♥

  11. BONNIE : "Latoya, I want to thank you for signing that book for me, and for giving Micheline a hug for us."

    The lovely & kindhearted gift your friend offered today is sealing even more your mutual friendship.

    I also do salute Ms. La Toya Jackson's courage not only because of her last "Starting Over" book but her sincere public declarations since Michael's passing. La Toya Jackson is a lady with real guts & instinct whom I respect : I believe her statements.

    God Bless & Protect La Toya & the Jackson Family.

  12. Dear Bonnie,

    Just read another article about Raymone Bain admiting in federal court that she did not pay taxes on that 30000 month income from 2006 too 2008 there's even even court documents (crook)!

  13. Dear Bonnie,

    I don't mean to be all over the place but I read an article on the net with dick Gregory confirming that the nurse who claims MJ begged her for propofol is also his good friend, ok, so the doctor was ordering propofol and other supplies from the same pharmacy that sued MJ for thousands months before he began working for MJ. Plus the doctor Murray just so happen to work at the same clinic as Dick Gregory. Why would MJ need to call and beg the nurse for propofol when the doctor had some on hand already. The is under foxnews.com (nutritionist says Jackson pleaded for insomnia sedative)

    ........ I didn't even have the luxury of knowing anything about Michael's father because I never followed or read about the Jacksons other than the occasional news item in the paper or on the television during "Thriller" years. I knew of them but didn't know anything about them. All the negative I heard about Michael's family was from Karen Faye's facebook page when that was open, and later some of the fan groups and Degosson's followers. Also during investigating I saw a lot of bad press and links to such.

    I think it was probably Michael himself and his speeches that led me to first look at Joe Jackson as another victim of the press. I know how this cabal looks at parents who actually believe they, not society knows how best to raise their child.

    ................ I haven't seen that yet so I will watch after I get done answering these posts. I don't for one minute believe Latoya was going to name names in THIS book. But there should be enough clues there to point us in the right direction. I think most of us know who some of them already are. I've seen "that look" from Latoya when somebody crosses a line in the sand. I've seen it on Michael too and I don't ever want to be on the other end of that. It's the nice, quiet people you have to watch out for, because they know things. They are listening and storing info when others are yapping.
    -------------------------------------------

    Line said - "La Toya Jackson is a lady with real guts & instinct whom I respect : I believe her statements."

    ........ When I started digging into what happened to her, I was completely in shock at how she was portrayed by people who more than likely knew what happened to her. It's just evil and she's out here now, doing what she needs to do. Another one of quiet strength.

    Micheline told me a little bit about the opening of the book and then she told me she read the beginning of the last chapter - she told me what she read so far upset her even though she knows there is a lot in between, I thought to myself, "What the heck, girl! Latoya spends all that time writing a book and you read the beginning and the end? LOL! Did ya rip a hole in a package or two at Christmas time as a child? Hahahahaha!"
    ----------------------------------------------

    @Nita - OMG . . . that is some hefty dollars if that is true! How is she ever going to pay that back? If it's true and she DOESN'T work for the gov. then she's going to be paying on this bill for the rest of her life. I wonder if anyone is going to help her? (I can't, I don't even make that a year right now).

  15. Hello I am a Brazilian fan of Michael Jackson.
    Someone here on this blog believe Michael would be alive?
    Does anyone believe that he faked his death?
    Which do you think there is substantial reason so many contradictions in the death of Mike? Because there are so many strange things in this whole story?
    God be with you !!!!! Kisses

  16. I'm so happy to have shared my experience of meeting Latoya with all of you! As for remaining calm in her presence, it wasn't easy. I knew this was Latoya's special day, and didn't want to delve into anything about Michael that might upset her or cause me to cry. During my twenty-year career in the entertainment industry I met lots of high profile people just as Bonnie has, so being star struck is not what worried me. When it comes to thinking about Michael my tears are always just under the surface waiting for the slightest provocation. In some strange way, it was Latoya's voice and serenity that gave me the strength to keep my poise with her. If she can do it, then I should be able to. Now I have a wonderful memory of a true one-on-one meeting that was not ruined by a foolish outburst of emotion.

    There was a final parting shot yesterday that was rather amusing. After saying goodbye to Latoya I walked a few feet away from the table and stopped to look around, because I felt "empty handed" thinking I had left something behind. Latoya was watching with concern when I caught sight of my jacket over a chair in the corner just where I left it. I looked over at Latoya and said, "I DID forget something - my head!" and she had such cute laugh over it. Then I blew her a kiss and left. It was a bit of a "duh" moment for me, but it was natural. It felt human. Just thought you would appreciate every last detail!

    And yes, it's official on this blog. Spotlight is Micheline!

    ........ Hi estrela from Brazil ((((hugs)))

    1. I believe this is not the end of the story or God's plan for Michael.

    2. I believe the Michael we know, the King of Pop was murdered but that the "Character" was murdered to save his life. Understand that not everyone on this blog believes what I do.

    3. I think the main reason there are so many contradictions in Michael's death is because many people profess to have done and seen things that they did not. I think there are different versions of what the family has shared for a reason, but I'm not privy to what that would be.

    I agree this story is strange, frustrating, hurtful at time (today was bad for me), sometime even angering. But we're awake so I suggest we use this time to listen to what Michael was trying to tell us . . . songs, lyrics, symbols on albums and in films, speeches, interviews, depositions and poems and short stories he wrote. He was trying to warn/save people.

    I'm going to delete the comment of yours above that because we do not need to get into detail like that about the children. That will upset people and it's not resourced or quoted.
