Michael Jackson's Kids: He Made The Best French Toast!

Michael Jackson's Kids: He Made The Best French Toast!

Michael Jackson‘s family opens up to Oprah Winfrey and reveals some facts the public didn’t know about the late King of Pop.

“I kind of felt like no one understands what a good father he was. He was I’d say the best cook ever,” Michael‘s daughter Paris, 12, said on Monday’s episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

“Everyone’s all, ‘a cook?’ Like they’re surprised to hear it,” she added. “He was just a normal dad, except for he was I’d say the best dad. He made the best French toast in the world!’

Michael‘s two sons, Prince Michael, 13, and Blanket, 8, also appeared on the show.

Watch a clip of the interview below and Michael‘s mom Katherine reveal how she got the news about her son’s passing.

    MJ defined god to transform himself from black to white; now, “his” kids. So in this case, DNA do lie.

    my conclusions after watching the entire interview:
    Paris is such a good talker .
    Prince is SO confident, he’s like “i can be whatever i want and nothing can stop me”.
    and Blanket, he’s mini Michael and him being shyness – that’s 100% MJ :)
    Katherine is a sweet and loving person but under Joe’s control she had no right to speak on her own.
    Joe is a weird person, there’s something truly scary in his eyes.

    Can someone refresh my memory please? Are Prince and Paris Michael’s biological children? Blanket looks exactly like Michael to me, but I don’t see any resemblance with the other two. Lovely children though. It’s amazing how well-spoken they appeared. And Paris and Prince are obviously thriving in a normal school with regular friends. It was nice to see.

  • Tara

    Prince and Paris are very poised for their age and after what they’ve been through. Michael would be so proud of them. Paris is a staunch defender of her dad and you can see she is the “spokesperson” for the three. Blanket is so adorable. Shy just like his father. It was so cute when he said “HE could get away with anything” referring to Prince. MJ has said in the past that Blanket was a handful and was always getting into trouble. Those kids are going to be just fine.

  • Annie

    That’s sweet, but I find it very sad that it seems the kids are now being pimped out by the Jackson family after Micheal was so intent on giving them a chance at life away from the spotlight and avoiding what he’d been through. I hope history doesn’t repeat itself.

  • Thai

    “MICHAEL’s children”? A figure of speech, right? Probably we will never know the real identity of these children. Poor them, they will be used and abused just like JACKO was. Or for u its not clear enuff?

  • ShaQueQue

    OMG that is absolutely sick and GROSS! anyone who says they want to eat out those children should go to jail for a life time! this is absolutely disgusting and disturbing! You guys are nasty pedophiles and u deserve the death sentence, but other than that they seem like cool children, maybe Janet braids their hair and plays tennis with them??!!?

  • KWOI

    Same as we will never know the true indentity of Ricky Martin’s twins though he claims he is the father.

  • mln

    well ricky martin says he used a surrogate, what’s so weird about that. and as for whether these are michael’s biological kids or not- how does that matter? 1- if someone can’t have kids that is what sperm banks/ surrogates/ etc are for and 2- people “adopt” kids every day and they become their kids- why is this any differnt.

    however strange michael might have been it seems like he was a loving father who raised kids that loved him and seem very intelligent children. i see no fault in that.

  • Gomez

    I do not think Paris and Prince are MJ’s biological children since years ago in an interview their mother Debbie Rowe stated that both she and MJ chose the father for the unborn children. He was a biracial, university student studying medicine. Paris looks exactly like her mother with tanned skin. Debbie is a very pale northern European, blue eyed blond. Paris has the complexion and features of Rashida Jones. Prince is lighter than his sister but his features, nose and mouth, are not as aquiline as hers.

  • Tassia

    Look up the daughters of Persia White, (Mecca); Karyn Parsons, (Lana) and Victoria Rowell, (Maya). Their daughters resemble Paris Jackson in coloring, facial features, eye color and light-colored straight hair. Persia, Karyn and Victoria are all brown skinned black women.

  • She-whom-shall-not-be-named

    oprah has stooped all time low pimping the family’s tradgedy to get ratings..They are not going to reveal any new or sensitive info, so what’s the point of exploiting the SAME DAMN info that has been played out in the media some tru some false..Katherine is delusional, the doctor may have enabled micheal but your son was a drug addict who used his money to make ppl comply to his demands. she should accept that.

  • BaBy Perfume

    wow WOW WOW! it saddens me that MJ did not adopt slash use surrogates to bear children that represent his own race. The fact that he changed himself to look Caucasian right to the last hair strand, do not win him any more points with me! seriously, blue-eyed..I understand the argument about adoption, but not 1 kid was black?..and some of you believe this B.S!!

  • yeah right, Letgetitt

    I feel bad for them because when katherine dies, Jermaine and Joe, who will probably live forever, will fight for the kids just to control their vast fortunes. Debbie needs to step up to become a ever present force in their lives.

  • Celina

    @Tassia: yeah you’re right. Paris certainly has the features of many bi-racial children I’ve seen. I don’t know why it’s such a big deal what color these kids are. The point is they love their dad very much, as he loved them. :)

  • yeah


  • Renee

    Jared, you have idiots for readers. To those questioning these kids paternity, you might want to first find out who YOUR daddy is before you question Michael.

  • Anonymous

    Beautiful children.

  • D

    Really who CARES if they were MJ’s biological children, or if they were adopted? They were his kids because he raised them, gave them a home, and LOVED them to the best of his ability. That is what makes a true father!

  • All about fashion

    he is their dad, it doesnt matter if the kids are his biological children or not.

  • @Tassia

    Victoria Rowell and Karyn Parsons are both biracial so their kids are technically 3/4 white and 1/4 black and have more chances of looking fully whites.
    They may look brownish, but both Karyn and Victoria have in them the gene of a parent who is fully white (Karyn father is white and Victoria mother is white), so genetically it makes perfect sense for them to have a fully blond white looking kid.

  • Ms Bar Jolie Gaga

    I know people – dark black people – with kids who are blued eyed and blonde hair. The only thing I will say usually those kids have one feature that is distinctly African like curlier hair or something. In some rare cases, this does happen. It’s genetic mystery. We will never know. If Michael did choose a White surrogate only then I think it shows how much he disliked himself because he could have at least chosen a biracial surrogate. We will never know. BUT there is a possibility the kids COULD be his. I have seen it with people I know. It’s amazing. I have seen two dark black people have a blue eyed blonde hair child. Whereas two white people can’t have a “black child” but the reverse can happen. And it certainly can happen when one parent is black and the other is white.

  • yo sista

    Michael’s mom is so sweet and real. Everything she said was heartfelt.

    His kids are all adorable. <3

    RIP King Of Pop!

  • Jo

    @BaBy Perfume: I bet he wasn’t even trying to win any points with you!!! :))) But your comment was hilarious anyway.
    I don’t normally comment on here but there you go…I had to say sth to your remark.

  • Hannah

    Paris voice looks like abigail breslin’s voice!!

  • Yoo

    JO-Who you are to judge is they r his kids or not??
    R.I.P. MJ :’(

  • peaceandloveMJ

    only a blind person can not see that these r all MJ’s children; Prince has vitiligo ; Paris has her father’s ears and legs; Blanket has his father’s eyes and body! What else do u ppl need to believe what MJ himself told u: these r his beautiful children!

  • larraine

    im sorry ya’ll but i speak for all the african american people and we know how black children comes out and they sure don’t come out like those three. Prince and paris are white and blanket is hispanic, not mj’s children! end of discussion

  • Maria

    It doesn’t matter if Michael was actually the father of Prince,Paris & Blanket because he’s the one who rasied them since they were born & they’re only gonna know Michael as their one else! The DNA doesn’t matter! What matters is that Michael was the one who took care of those 3 children since they were born & he apparently did a very good job because look at how well behaved those children are!

  • SC

    In the larger scheme of things, does it really matter whether MJ was the biological father of these children or not?! People will speculate until the end of time, but I think he was likely a very good parent to these kids and that’s probably what matters most. MJ obviously had his eccentricities and some major issues, and although shrouding his children in public when they were younger and he was still alive seemed extremely weird at the time, I think he did it only to protect them the best way he knew how. They seem to have turned out fine and normal (so far). I personally think it beats the way certain not-yet-married-but-now-supposedly-engaged-with-six-children Hollywood couples pimp their kids out to the press on a regular basis, all while hypocritically insisting they value their privacy.
