Update: Michael Jackson’s Poor Kids Won’t Star in Reality Show

Update: Katherine Jackson tells TMZ that Michael's kids definitely won't appear on the show.

Good news for people who enjoy being nauseated: US Weekly reports that Michael Jackson's three children, Prince, Paris, and Blanket — of whom he was so fiercely protective he forced them to wear masks while in public — will appear on A&E's upcoming grief-tastic reality show, The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty. Janet is allegedly on board with the decision and MJ's mom, Katherine, "is just going along with things," but his oldest sister, Rebbie, who's refusing to participate, "feels Michael would spin in his grave if he knew his kids would be on this show." A&E tells CNN that "they are not part of the series," but US Weekly is standing by its story, and a Jackson family publicist won't rule out the kids' appearance: "We are not going to comment," they said in a statement. If Joe Jackson is really this desperate for cash, we'd rather they just remaster the Beatles' albums again.
