The three will be talking about Whitney Houston and what their sources are telling them in regards to possible causes of her death.
Dr. Wecht, Dawna Kaufmann, and John J Nazarian will share their opinions on what caused the death of Houston.
John will have something to say about the ex-body guard, Alan Jacobs, who was Houston’s director of security from 1995 until 2002, quit because he said Houston and her now ex-husband Bobby Brown, and those around Houston would not allowed allow him to do his job. Jacobs said that working for the star was like ‘living in the eye of a hurricane’ and added he was ‘constantly trying to fight the swirl of activity that’s around you’. Jacobs had, “eliminated access to her by certain people I thought were negative influences. The reality of it is that you can protect someone from everything but you can’t protect them from themselves.’
Jacobs has said he told Houston, “[I told her,] ‘You hired me to do a job, to protect you … but I cannot protect you from yourself.” Jacob has added that Houston replaced him with family members who would not confront her and dropped the ball on protecting her. He also revealed that one of Brown’s family took over his job – but did not do it properly.

Daniel DiCrisio was asked to do a cover article on Micheal Jackson and his feminine side for Star Magazine, you can read it at this link.
Remember the song “It’s a Family Affair”? Well, it seems that Michael Jackson’s death is bringing this true to some of The Jackson clan, especially when lights, cameras, and the word “Action!” are part of the carrot dangled in some of their faces, or so it seems. I personally do not know how I would be handling such a situation if I were in their shoes, and I can only surmise.
Death brings out strange personality traits, behaviors, & actions when a celebrity dies, and sometimes even when they aren’t celebrities. The vultures start circling sometimes. LOL!
In this case with Michael Jackson, I am shocked at how soon Joe Jackson and Janet Jackson have spoken so quickly under very odd “show-bizzy” situations. I mean, let’s be real….The BET Awards? Is this the proper thing that should have been done? Yes, the press said Janet seemed “visibly shaken” but I thought that is was very tasteless for Janet and especially Joe to be at this Red Carpet event, and dressed to the nines, both of them. I felt it was sort of “too soon” for any kind of celebratory event to be attending. A video montage is one thing honoring Michael without their involvement. I was thinking more of the “mourning” phase to be more appropriate.
Joe Jackson, not supposedly on Michael’s best side …nor the public’s or the press’ for that matter, didn’t fail everyone’s expectations when he arrived with his fedora and black suit and shades, yet not shedding a tear! Some would say they saw $$$ signs thru his shades! Although, it really doesn’t shock me. I remember being invited to and attending Joe Jackson’s Birthday Party in 2004 in Las Vegas. ( I sent in Rose a picture from that event with Joe.) The birthday party was a little odd because not one of Joe’s family attended, and it was a huge event at a private mansion, that had Ferrari’s and Lamborghini’s parked in the driveway. Although, to make it even stranger than you can imagine, Joe hired a Michael Jackson Look-alike for the party! And the impersonator performed as well!
At the premiere for Bruno, Universal decided to cut out the LA Toya Jackson’s part from the movie last minute http://www.thecelebritycafe.com/features/29658.html. Jeez, talk about quick editing! (I also sent Rose a photo of La Toya and Me in Vegas), as well! Universal thought that they were being “respectful”" to the Jackson clan during this terrible time, yet Janet and Joe feel being seen in a showbiz situation was the right thing to do….I’d like to hear what you think of Joe and Janet at the BET Awards.
It is tough being in the “the Biz”, but for some reason “ethics” doesn’t play a role in it usually, it is usually “everyone’s out for themselves” mentality. With families, dysfunctional comes with the turf and really, we don’t know what has gone down between Michael and his family members, all we can do is surmise. I met Michael Jackson backstage at a music special filming that included Whitney Houston and found Michael to be a very mannered and sweet smiling soul. I really didn’t feel any evil kind of energy from him, but remember, everyone has a bad side to them.
The one thing that did shock me when I met Michael was that I was much taller him – LOL!
