We all remember the Jackson Five, they were the group of black kids that could dance, sing and play instruments. They hit the big time, but life at home with their abusive father wasn’t so great. Michael Jackson was the star from the outset, he eventually had a solo career that made millions as well as many Grammy Awards. When Michael passed away he left three children in the care of his mother and now they are growing into mature adults. He will never be forgotten and his music still lives on.
Janet Jackson was another breakout star, she began acting on Good Times and other sitcoms as well as a host of movies. She has won many Grammy’s and had several hits, she is now married with a son.
“The Jacksons: Next Generation” are the children of Tito Jackson, back in the day they were known as 3T, an R&B group. Last year, the three brothers decided to open up their lives and their homes to fans and viewers on Lifetime. We were able to see how the Jackson kids grew up and how they managed to remain as humble as they are.
The brothers have toured the world and sold more than three million records worldwide just off their debut album. They were deeply impacted by the loss of their mother, Dee Dee, she was found dead at a home in California in 1994. The boys were told that their mother had died accidentally in the pool. Her death actually happened at her boyfriend’s home, a 59 year old businessman whose name is Donald Bohana. Dee Dee’s sons were convinced that someone killed their mother, but after the police reopened the case, the autopsy report found that her death was not an accident and her body had several injuries everywhere. Her sons are raising their children and managing to live each day as it comes with their own families. TJ has taken on the role as guardian to Michale’s three children due to Katherine’s failing health. He has children and a wife of his own but he really loves Michael’s children and it was evident when we were able to get a glimpse inside the their lives.
However, I was surprised to see that Taryyl Jackson will be airing his dirty laundry on Iyanla Vanzant’s Fix My Life Show this coming Saturday. The Jackson’s are a very private family, so for him to seek help from the one of the greatest who tells it like it is and how she sees it, is a miracle in itself. He had to get paid a whole lotta coins to do this show and I’m sure his family doesn’t approve, but this is his life and his family and if he needs help, so be it.
Iyanla visits the former R&B group 3T and nephew of the late superstar Michael Jackson, Taryll Jackson, needs to understand the issues he has that lay beneath him while his relationship with the mother of his children and girlfriend of 10 years is going to HELL in a hand basket. Anyone who loses their mother the way they all did will have unresolved issues. I’m sure that has a lot to do with what he has to deal with. Taryll is OCD, he likes everything to be in order, when he schedules a job or a meeting, he expects everyone to arrive early but everyone isn’t like him. Hopefully, he can salvage his relationship with his girlfriend, they have the most adorable children.
We’ll have to tune in next week to see how all of this unfolds!!
Tamar’s Mom Is Back Again
Mama Evelyn loves her daughter and she especially loves Tamar, she was the baby and all her mom wants to do is protect her but she shouldn’t have ever revealed anything to TMZ or other blog sites about Tamar or Vince. Her speaking out has already allegedly caused tension in the family, Tamar doesn’t want to film with her mother after she spoke to TMZ about her marriage.
Mama Evelyn continues to speak out about her daughter and how much emotional and physical abuse she allegedly endured from her estranged husband. Mama Evelyn exposed her truth about the situation by saying to the TMZ cameras to “keep his hands off her child before he kills her.”
Allegedly Mama Evelyn has been doing interviews and not holding back. She’s tired of the secrets, the lies, the alleged abuse and the fake marriage that her daughter and Vince have marriage. A reliable source close to the family says that Tamar and Vince had been trying to hide the alleged abuse for years but her mom had the “audacity to tell the truth.”
Mama Evelyn is letting it all hang out, she also alleges that Vince blamed Tamar’s “mouth” for the abuse. When he met Tamar, she had the same mouth and he married her anyway. If these rumors are true, Vince played the role of a lifetime because I still have a hard time believing that he physically and emotionally abused her. There are always three sides to a story, his side, her side and the truth lies somewhere in the middle.
Mama Evelyn was asked if she has ever confronted Vince about these alleged abuse allegations and she said, “his response was, it was Tamar’s mouth to blame.”
“It’s always ‘it’s Tamar’s mouth’…it’s always someone else. That does not give you the right to abuse her. Everybody has a mouth. Everyone should have the right to say what they want. Are you trying to beat [her] into submissiveness? No one has the right,” she says.
“Her sisters have been trying to fight Vince for a long time but it was always denied,” she also says.
Tamar posted the message below on her Instagram:
“This season of #TamarandVince is going to be hard for me. But I think it’s so important for you you all to see because I used to think marriage was easy and “i got this”… but like my mom says “sometimes you get the bear and sometimes the bear gets you”! All new at 9pm on @wetv”
“I think too many women are abused, and it’s high time that we stand up and stop this madness,” Mama Evelyn says. “Do you know how many women are killed each year? I just don’t want Tamar to be a part of that.”
“If anything happens to Tamar, that’s Logan’s loss and her loss as well as her sisters.” “I don’t want that kind of pain,” she says. “Enough is enough. I don’t care how much they smile. I don’t care how much they pretend.”
Naturally, Vince previously denied the abuse allegations and said he’d be “praying” for Ms. Evelyn. We may never know the truth, has Tamar been abused? I don’t know. it just seems like Vince isn’t that type of man but anything is possible. Tamar does have a smart and sassy mouth but that never warrants a reason to allegedly assault her. I really hope and pray that the couple can resolve their issues and get back to the business at hand and that would be the music.
Shemar Moore And Phaedra Parks
Actor Shemar Moore appeared on “Watch What Happens Live,” a few months ago and Phaedra Parks was also on the show as well. Andy was trying to hook the two up together but it seemed liked it was more of Phaedra who wanted Shemar than Shemar wanting her.
He is one fine and sexy a$$ actor, why would he want an alleged con artist, liar, a woman who married a criminal who was also fired from “The Real Housewives Of Atlanta,” for starting rumors?
So back in December of last year, Phaedra and Shemar did kiss on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live.” But it was a forced kiss, it was so awkward it was funny but I guess Phaedra took that and ran with the idea that she was now Shemar’s play thing.
“This thing, it’s crazy to me, I just woke up, like last week and everybody’s like, ‘Phaedra, Phaedra, Phaedra!” said Shemar. “And look, I met Phaedra doing a nighttime talk show with Andy Cohen and Andy Cohen does this thing late at night and he likes to get you to drink. And so you’re loose and you have fun on his show.”
“So I walked in and I saw Phaedra and I know who Phaedra—-I’ve heard of Phaedra and she was looking like—and so she looked at me and I kinda had this sense of like, ‘Oh, she thinks I’m the guy from The Young and the Restless’ or ‘She thinks I’m a certain Shemar.’ And I said, ‘Well, I’m gonna introduce you to a different kind of Shemar’,” he said.
“So I just decided to have a good time and she was such a good sport and we played and we flirted and we got our little kissy face on. And then that went viral and that’s the first and the last time that I’ve ever seen or met Phaedra.”
Phaedra just can’t get it together, she is now shopping for her own reality show and that isn’t looking good, she wants to get back on the housewives, I’m not sure that will ever happen with the current ladies they have on the show and the man she believed may be interested her, just dissed her a$$ on national tv and the internet.
Shemar made a video about him never dating Phaedra, him never being gay or liking little boys, just check out the video below for yourself:
