LaToya Jackson Gets Her Own Reality Show


Well, OWN has officially given up trying to be a network and has handed over the keys to the crazy people. They have decided to give LaToya Jackson a reality show. Will I watch the first one? Of course. I want to see LaToya. After that though, what will be there to see? Someone who is trying to climb up the ladder to the G list with hopes of someday making the D list again before she dies? The cameras are going to follow her daily adventures and businesses. So, if you have ever wondered if celebrities are available to open a pet store in Des Moines or a car wash in Omaha, come with OWN as they follow LaToya Jackson from $100 paycheck to $100 paycheck. It should be thrilling. If you want to see what the Jersey Shore cast will be doing 20 years from now, here is your preview.

Enty has been hitting the Haterade already today.

I knew it! A Jackson reality show. I'll bet the producers will be pushing hard for Latoya to muscle in on the drama with the kids. I hope the kids are kept off of this show.

Moose said...

And Oprah officially jumps the shark.

AuntJess said...

Well somebody has to help Randy pay his child support...

rhinovodka said...

oh my.

FSP said...

The world is officially coming to an end.

smashbash said...

Damnit! I wanted it to be a detective type talk show. Now that! I would watch.

car54 said...

I'll watch the first one and see. I like LaToya and if she is herself and not acting I might watch it.

Own is kind of sad lately--the only really good show they have is Lisa Ling right now.

Amber said...

I think Oprah is trolling us.

Irishnurse said...

She did celebrity big brother in the uk and came across well to be fair to her. She seemed like a very gentle person. But I can't rely on that alone and stories of her and her family can't be ignored. We won't see this in Ireland though! Long time lurker first time poster x x

cc423 said...

Well now we know why she kept her mouth shut during the whole family debacle that just went down.

Redheat said...

UGH

SusanB said...

The only Jackson I'd want to see on a reality show is Andrew Jackson (the 6th president).

O'Really said...

Idk SusanB....Samuel L. would probably be pretty interesting

Layna Day said...

Time to show off my presidential knowledge. Jackson was the 7th US prez. John Quincy Adams was the 6th.

Hazeldazel said...

Andrew Jackson was a complete tool. Forced relocation of Native Americans is not cool.

Now Samuel L. Jackson would be hella awesome, although he would get SOOOOOO sick of everyone asking him to say "I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!" Sign.Me.Up.

Moose said...

Maybe LaToya can have a dance off to see who gets to go along as her date to a remote island where they hunt down clues to get back to civilization. And eat bugs.

Really, is ANYONE interesred in her or whats shes doing? What on earth wld be the draw??

Amy in MI said...

If it was Detective La Toya solving the worlds crimes ( did OJ do it?) I would watch

SusanB said...

@Layna Day - of course, I forgot about JQAdams. I just read the thread about the Chinese girl from yesterday and my head is still a little fuzzled.

WUWT? said...

Wow. She paid for that face?

Basil said...

She was pretty good on UK Celebrity Big Brother. Seemed very nice bit not a pushover, and had some interesting stories to tell. So I would watch this, but they probably should make sure she interacts with other people to interact with.

Yxtabay said...

So someone gave a Jackson an job. At least she's earning her own money!

kelgela said...

So that's why we haven't heard anything about her...
She better watch out before the other Jacksons go after her for money.

paul said...

Sounds like either Ryan Seacrest or Andy Cohen have been put in charge of OWN and are now dishing out crap programs from which they'll make a mint.

stigs84 said...

Ha, I remember when delusional Danielle Staub referred to LaToya as an "A lister" on that crappy vh1 reality show she was on.

Sis said...

Ugh....I'll watch the first episode, maybe it will surprise us all and be entertaining.....

Pattie Crow said...

LaToya actually earned a bit of respect from me when she was on Celebrity Apprentice. She wasn't nearly as dumb or diva-ish as I thought she would be. It's just her whisper voice that drives me freaking nuts.

FingerBinger said...

I saw her on The Apprentice and she was really nice, but nor that interesting. She only has cache because she is a Jackson,obviously, and clearly they're all nuts.

Beta said...

hey! for a change a Jackson is going to WORK
as if somebody's interested... well mikael K sure is XD

MadLyb said...

I can't hate on LaToya. She might be crazy, but she isn't nasty like some of her siblings.

Henriette said...

Can't blame the Big O. She no longer runs OWN. She is just another paid employee. Besides, this La Toya show has been in the works for a while.

Sherry said...

Welcome Irish. People here are for the most part very nice. Where are you in this big ole world? Is it presumptuous to think Ireland due to being able to see BB UK and your moniker?

Sherry said...

Hazeldazel: Please check out "Empire of the Summer Moon" for a real eye opener on our history of screwing the native Americans.

Its just U said...

Howaya!! I'm in Ireland too. I saw La Toya and Jermaine on BBUK too. She was quite surprising and nice but Jermaine was a bit of a sneak.

Right on! G List or not, at least shes not trying to swindle those kids!

Basil said...

@itsjustyou I didn't think Jermaine was all that bad in Celeb BB, but I do remember he kept telling Shilpa that the reason the pretty girls didn't like her was because of racism. That turned out to be a HUGE problem that season and I do think the 3 girls got a whole whack of grief from the press over their presumed racism when the fact is, they weren't racist in the least. They just didn't like Shilpa because at times she was just to bossy to be around. Besides, the only real racist was Jade's mother and she was removed from the house quickly. But yeah, I think Jermaine kept the old race fire aflame despite his soft spoken demeanour. As for Latoya, she came across as remarkably genuine the next season. The thing that struck me the most was when she said she has never had a friend and the only people she was closest to were her staff. And she wasn't having a pity party, she just said it like it was the most normal thing in the world to not have a friend.
