The Shop

The Jackson family are apparently touring cable networks, touting a proposed pilot for a reality series in which Michael Jackson's siblings take feature roles.

Cory Rooney is producing the upcoming MTV series called "The Shop".

The show would feature the sons of Tito Jackson, who succeeded overseas as the members of boy band 3T during the 1990s but are trying to make a comeback as adults.

In the show they receive help from their father, as well as other aunts and uncles.

Brando's Plans For Jackson

Marlon Brando was a great friend and fan of Michael Jackson, so much so that he wanted to make a two-part TV special which would have highlighted each other's careers.

Jackson was apparently so thrilled with the prospect that he allegedly called and left his former aide, Marc Schaffel, a voice message at 4:41 in the morning which stated that the project was to start as soon as possible.

The message allegedly said:

"Marlon Brando is pushing, and he's a wonderful man. He's a god. We have to get this done. He wants to get it done before Christmas ... He just wants to make it a big deal. He wants a lot of money, and we would own it together . . . He really wants it, I mean I think that he feels he won't be living too much longer,"

Allegedly, part-one of the show was to be set in Neverland, with Brando chatting up Jackson about his music.

Brando's private Polynesian island was supposed to be the scene for the second part, with Jackson questioning Brando.

The project however never materialised as Brando died on July 1, 2004.

Michael Jackson's 1983 hit Thriller has been voted the best music video of all time, beating Eminem's Stan into second place in a poll conducted by The Box music channel.

At least it's not all bad news for Jackson.

Jackson Threatens Legal Action

Michael Jackson has countered claims that he is overindulging in drink and drugs, by warning the people who are spreading these rumours that they should be prepared for legal battles.

Raymone Bain, Jackson's publicist, has responded angrily to allegations that Jackson had been on whisky and painkiller binge.

She is quoted as saying:

"He is doing fine and I have never seen him happier or healthier. Whoever these individuals are who are intent on disseminating false information should begin hiring good attorneys."
