Michael Jackson's kids to appear in reality show

Eldest sister Rebbie says Jackson would “spin in his grave” at the idea

What could be healthier for a child’s development than having Michael Jackson for a father? Having TV cameras come into your home and make a series out of your grief. There’s some controversy in the Jackson family about A&E’s upcoming series about them and how they’re adjusting to the death of the pop superstar, specifically, the decision to include Jackson’s three children in the series. Jackson’s oldest sister Rebbie, who didn’t agree to appear on the show, said that “Michael would spin in his grave if he knew his kids would be on this show.” For their part, the creators of “The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty” says that the whole Jackson family has “done a great job opening up about losing a brother.” So why shouldn’t the kids get as much chance as the siblings to be exploited on national television?
