Recently, Katherine Jackson, mother of the late iconic singer Michael Jackson, invited Oprah Winfrey to the 'Thriller' singer's Encino, Calif., home for a rare perspective on life since her son's death.
While lounging in the backyard with Katherine, Winfrey had an opportunity to visit with Michael's three children, Prince, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, 8.
According to People, the Emmy Award-winning talk show host will discuss Michael's childhood, his career, his children and his legacy with the Jackson matriarch.
Randy Jackson is one member of the family who is not happy about the upcoming show. As previously reported, he took to Twitter, writing, "I had no prior knowledge this was going to happen. It was deliberately kept from me because they knew I would have tried to stop it.
He added, "I know how Oprah feels about my brother and family. I also know that he would not have wanted this. ...In fact, she is the last person on earth he would want around his children."
This marks the second episode of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' dedicated to Jackson.
Back in September of 2009, Winfrey remembered the late King of Pop. And in April, she had Janet Jackson on her show as a guest.
For the first time, the 'For Colored Girls' star opened up about the last time she saw her brother before he died a year and a half ago at age 50. The 'Control' singer also revealed that the family had tried interventions before to get her big brother off prescription medication to no avail. Janet said Michael was in denial about his problem.
The special episode of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' featuring Katherine Jackson is set to air on Nov.8.
