Theresa did an interview with Dr. Catherine Gross' radio show called "A Place In Your Heart" some months back. You can listen to the three hour show here -
In the interview, Theresa talks about her time with Michael and how she met him, her letters to him, how she hung out with the family, her special time with him among many other things. Theresa basically told the listeners what she stated in her book about her time with Michael on the show. In the interview, Theresa also talks about being an author and the books that she had written and is currently working on. Theresa stated that she first started writing to Michael in 1970 and finally met him in 1974 when the Jacksons were doing their Las Vegas shows. Theresa talks about the time she spent alone with Michael and how he was ignoring her on purpose but then when she realized it, Michael started laughing. Theresa stated that Michael wrote back to her four times but that she lost those letters. Now, if Michael wrote me back four times, I would never lose those letters. I would have kept them in a box and store it where no one would even know where to find them. I mean, did she not understand the importance of that? That was probably her proof to people who are skeptical about her story that she knew Michael. She also talked about a few things that she did not mentioned in her book. Theresa stated that when she was with Michael in New York City, he took her shopping at Bloomingdales and bought her a stuffed animal. Theresa stated that when she got to the Hayvenhurst estate to meet with Michael, Joe was there and asked her why she was here. When Theresa explained to him that she wanted to see Michael, Joe stated to her that she would have to sleep with him in order for her to meet his son. Back in that time, Joe was a very crazy man. Theresa also stated that Michael helped her with the marketing of her first book Obsessions. In the interview, Theresa also talks about the time she had this strange feeling that Michael was going to die and how she is now dealing with the loss.
When you listen to the interview that she did, you do get a better idea of how Michael was like as a person and how Theresa knew the real Michael. Now, there were a few things that she stated that some people might not like but overall, she means well. There were two things that bothered me about the interview: 1. Theresa talking about how the fans, some of them, treated her when she first came forward with her book, 2. a caller name Angie who is the definition of the typical jealous MJ female fan. Ever since Theresa came forward with her story, some of Michael's fans made it a mission to discredit her at every cost. At times in the interview, Theresa had to clear the air on some things because some of these fans would create stories that weren't true or judge her because she came forward telling her private stories about Michael. I guess those fans do not understand that there are lies about Michael out there that people will not counter attack or stop. Theresa's story is important and it needed to be told. There is not good or bad time for women of Michael's to come forward and tell their stories about Michael. Angie is the "fan" that called the show to ask Theresa questions and then she started to go on and on about things that had nothing to do with Theresa or her story. The caller called three times doing the same thing and was getting to the point where I was shouting at my laptop because I wanted that person to be hung up on. I think it was a game that she was playing because she did not believe Theresa's story. Angie clearly was trying to discredit Theresa at every cost and used the opportunity that she had to do just that. The problem is that she was making herself look like a fool and only proves the point that the only reason why the women that truly loved Mike and vice versa get treated like garbage is because those fans, who are female, are jealous of what they could never have. Theresa should be thanked for taking the time to do an interview about Michael and should not be disrespected or lied on because the person or people doing the bashing are insecure about certain things in their lives. People should listen to the whole interview regardless of the Angie caller and decide for themselves what they think of her story.
If you thought you heard the last of Ola Ray in the spotlight, think again. Ola Ray's tribute video to Michael was probably one of the worst tributes anyone can do to an entertainer. This woman wants to continue to capitalize in Michael's fame by planning on writing a book about Michael. Check out this video interview that Ola did with Foxy Tv and beware of the tacky wig:
I saw video of a seminar on Michael a couple of years back that discussed his music, impact and life and the speakers of the seminar were writers and pop/social commentators Toure Neblett and Nelson George. Toure is an author and he worked for Rolling Stone magazine and Nelson George is also an author who used to work for Billboard magazine back in the 1980s. Both men have been very critical of Michael when Michael was alive. The men were so critical of him that not only did they damn him for being himself but implied that he harmed children.
What they stated about him back in 2011 in the seminar is not what they stated about him in the past and when people listen to these two speak of Michael, they really have no idea what they really thought about him. It always bothered me when people now want to tell the truth about Michael. They now see what a big deal Michael was and feel that it is best to tell the people what was always known about Michael. I am going to post the video of when they both talk about Michael and women and then I am going to post what they stated about Michael when he was alive.
As I was looking around the Internet about certain things, I stumbled upon a few videos on youtube that mentioned Michael and women or sex. I wanted to add the information on this blog post to discuss those items. I want to start with producer and The Voice coach, Pharrell Williams admission about Michael that got the fan community and the Internet buzzing. I am going to post what Pharrell stated about Michael and I will state something about that.
I feel like I have been discussing about this subject too many times but it continues to pop up at times. Some fans have a hard time understanding the way Michael did things in his life. I am going to state here what is known about Blanket's/Bigi's mother and maybe you all can come to your conclusions. So, let's start with the first time we heard that Michael had his last child.
People magazine reported that Michael was spotted holding a baby and introducing the child to Siegfeild and Roy. A friend of Michael's, producer Gary Pudney, told the magazine this information of the child.
"Singer and pop peculiarity Michael Jackson has quietly added a baby boy to his brood, PEOPLE reports in its latest issue. The singer brought the 6-month-old baby backstage at Siegfried and Roy's Las Vegas show on July 30, along with his other two children, Prince Michael, 5, and daughter Paris, 4. "The baby was a surprise," a source told PEOPLE. "(Jackson) said, 'This is my third child.'" Equally surprising is the baby's name. PEOPLE has learned that Jackson has been introducing the tot as "Prince Michael II," or simply "No. 3." The identity of the child's mother (sources tell PEOPLE that the child was not adopted and was conceived "the natural way") remains another mystery.http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,624557,00.html
Read the bold part carefully.
Michael did that horrible documentary Living with Michael Jackson in which, when asked by that fraud Martin Bashir, how Blanket came into the world. When Bashir asked him if he had a relationship with the mother, Michael stated that he did and adding that she believes that the media was scumbag and does not like the press. In that same interview when Bashir asked Michael again, how Blanket came into this world, Michael seemed pissed and decided to tell him the story of Blanket being born by a surrogate and that he did not know the woman who gave birth to his son. You can watch the rest of the horrible documentary below. That is only if you want to if you stomach that Bashir monster.
"until he met his third child's mother, fell very much in love with her, but he is his father's son, so he wasn't entirely
faithful to her, which is why they split up shortly after she found out
she was pregnant."
The promotional guy stated more things about the mother and Michael's relationship but I do not think that Blanket/Bigi should find that out about his parents on a blog. That is very odd and wrong to me. I will state that the promotional guy (I call him that because he did promotions for Michael when he worked for him. I never got his name and I hope one day that I do but that is another story.) has met the mother in person and saw how Michael and the mother interacted with one another.
There are fans that believe that Blanket's mother is a woman name Prudence Solomon who is a television personality in South Africa. Fans claimed that she looks like Blanket and hence forth, she must be the mother and also because Michael was friends with the woman. Here is the thing: Prudence is not Blanket's mother because she looks nothing like him and just because Michael knew the woman does not mean she had his child. Prudence was married at the time when Blanket was born and Michael even walked her down the aisle at her wedding. However, that does not mean anything. Yes, Michael had relationships with married women in the past (June Chandler, Lisa Marie Presley and supposedly Glenda Stein) but that does not mean he had a relationship with her. Also, Michael stated in the 2003 horror documentary that the mother did not like nor care for the media so how can Prudence be the mother of Blanket if she does not like the media? That is because Prudence is not Blanket's/Bigi's mother. I do not know if Blanket's/Bigi's mother will ever come forward and give the world the ultimate tea on Michael and from what I know about how Michael would protect his women from the spotlight, I doubt that we will ever hear from her.
I stated on the Facebook page for the blog that I will finally talk about my friendship with Romonica Harris. I have been thinking of doing this for a while and as I am thinking about doing this, I am thinking about why I am doing this and why I should not do this. I have thought about all of the things that we discussed about her time with Michael and just when I want to add something about it, I have to also do another explanation as to why I added that information. How can I tell people how she met this man when she never told me how she met him? How can I explain which of Michael's family members is not supposed to be anywhere near Romonica without starting something I cannot finished?
How can I explain to the reader her claims that they were engaged and that she knows about highly sensitive documents? How can I explain to the reader why I removed her story about her time with Michael on this blog two years ago without explaining that there is another major part to their story? This story about their relationship is difficult to explain and that is why I cannot tell you pretty much anything about this situation. I can state that we are no longer friends because she stopped communicating with me. I did not do anything wrong but instead I was in contact with someone who also knows about her story who was worried for her. I wanted Romonica to understand why this person contacted me but instead she stop responding to my emails.
I was shocked and then became angry because in a way, I felt betrayed. I sort of lost myself in this and I almost forgot that I was a fan of Michael's and my loyalty is to him. I was one of those fans that wanted to know all of the information about Michael and the women in his life. When I communicated with Romonica, I was thinking about all of the things that I could ask her only for her to tell me what she wanted me to know. When I found out, what I believe, is the real story about her relationship with Michael, I was not angry but I was mystified as to why she could not just tell me what was the deal. Why would she completely skip a whole part of their relationship because she has not gotten over it even after Michael's passing? Was it because I was a fan and that she believed that fans would not understand or even believe it?
I am not going to get into what I was told because it is confidential but it is not about child abuse or any crime for that matter. The situation that happened in their relationship is the ultimate dealbreaker (in most relationships) in romantic relationships. I am not even sure if it is even 100% true but I never put anything pass Michael and women.
The one important thing that I take from this learning lesson is how Michael treated Romonica and gave her the self confidence that she needed. Romonica told me that Michael was the first person to ever tell her that she was beautiful. That means a lot to a dark-skinned black, young woman from the South Side of Chicago. To know that this man, the greatest entertainer of all time, tell her what she needed to hear and mean it, meant the world to her. The way Michael respected her and cherish her is something that changed her life. Romonica was there for him when the very women he "married" were trashing him and after everything that has happened between them, she still managed to be there for him. That is what I choose to take from communicating with Romonica because she is not required to tell me anything. She did not want me to know every single thing about her relationship with Michael and I have to respect that. I will never bash her on this blog or any format I add my opinions on because she never bashed me. We might not be friends anymore but to say I have hard feelings would be a lie. I am glad that she told me what she wanted to tell me because it proves, once again, the goodness of Michael and that she was one of the lucky ones.
