<<What is the La Test on La Toya Jackson?
Jan 15, 2017: Today we celebrate ten years since the launch of LaToyaLove.com! On this date in 2007 we moved The Universal Love of La Toya from our old AOL-hosted site, which we started in 1996! Still the same stunning low-tech design and endless purple scroll!
Jan 2017: La Toya continues to be very active on Twitter and Instagram, chronicling her busy and glamorous life. She loves watching reality shows like Dancing With The Stars and Celebrity Apprentice, dining out in Beverly Hills, and commenting on celebrity news events. Do you follow her?
Sept. 19, 2016: La Toya stunned the red carpet of the Brent Shapiro Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Prevention Summer Spectacular as she peacocked in a white pantsuit and train. Nobody can touch the glamour of ToyToy!
March 3, 2016: La Toya released a duet with Persian superstar Andy Madadian called "Tehran", where LaToya sings in Farsi!
Sep. 21, 2015: New remixes of "Trouble", a long lost La Toya Jackson track, were released by Vibe On Records. La Toya sang a demo of the song that was eventually released by Nia Peeples and became a #1 dance hit in 1988. This CD includes remixes by Jared Jones, Matt Pop, and Dr. Brooks, as well as a megamix of LaToya's "You're Gonna Get Rocked" album.
June 1, 2015: VibeOnRecords re-released La Toya's 1990 "Bad Girl" as a two-disc set loaded with TWENTY bonus tracks! Among the extras are all of the released remixes of "Bad Girl" and "Sexual Feeling", the one-off single "Why Don't You Want My Love?", as well as unreleased versions of such classics as "Playboy", "You and Me", and her ode to Michael: "He's My Brother".
Feb 27, 2015: La Toya revealed to TMZ that she is and Jeffre are no longer engaged. He is presumably still her manager and clearly they are still close friends.
July 21, 2014: La Toya released her first solo single in five years, an uptempo club banger entitled "Feels Like Love". The recording of the song and music video was documented on season two of her OWN reality show "Life With La Toya".
June 7, 2014: La Toya's reality show "Life With La Toya" returned to OWN for season two with even more drama and fabulousness! La Toya got engaged to her manager Jeffre in Hawaii, La Toya performed in an off-Broadway musical, La Toya got therapy for the first time, La Toya recorded a new album, and Toy had a melt down after a technical snafu at her Rasputin performance. In the finale La Toya seemed to call off or postpone her engagement. Will there be a season three for this Must See ToyVee?
May 5, 2014: La Toya's duet with RuPaul, "Feel Like Dancing" was finally released on RuPaul's "Born Naked: Deluxe Edition" along with three fantastic remixes. (Available on iTunes)
In an interview with Idolator RuPaul spoke of how the song came about and his long-held appreciation of La Toya:
"I have been friends with Toy for about 20 years. We’ve always wanted to do something together but it just never worked out. Finally it happened and it’s not a moment too soon!
We wanted to do something fun — something that two girlfriends, when they’re about to go out dancing, would sing about. We wanted to capture that feeling of going out with your best girlfriend.
She’s always been the underdog of such a huge entertainment dynasty and I’ve always gravitated toward the underdog. Also the fact that she’s a sweetheart. She’s not a bitter person, plus she’s so beautiful. I’ve always gravitated toward that."
Dec 14, 2013: La Toya debuted her new single "Feels Like Love" in a live performance at Rasputin Nightclub in West Hollywood.
Dec 6, 2013: RadarOnline reported that LaToya married her longtime business parter and close friend Jeffre Phillips. However three days later La Toya issued a denial to Entertainment Tonight. Clips from the upcoming season of her OWN reality show Life With LaToya show Jeffre proposing to La Toya and her apparently accepting, so it seems as if a marriage is in the works but perhaps RadarOnline jumped the gun. It would be LaToya's second marriage to a manager, her first was from 1989-1996 to her then-manager Jack Gordon.
Dec 2, 2013: Cherry Pop records re-released La Toya's groundbreaking "You're Gonna Get Rocked" album on CD. Not only does it include Toy's iconic hits "Such A Wicked Love", "You Blew", and "Just Say No", this special edition is loaded with never-before-heard outakes, remixes and demo versions. Highlights of the 2-CD set include La Toya's demo of the Nia Peeples hit "Trouble", a previously unheard remix of the Stock/Aitken/Waterman track "Tell Me (She Means Nothing To You At All)", and extended 12" versions of nearly every track. The packaging includes extensive new liner notes written by Mike from Church of La Toya, many additional photos, and personal input from La Toya herself!
Nov 23, 2013: The OWN Network aired a Life With La Toya Holiday Special: "A Jolly Jackson Christmas"! It featured La Toya, Jeffre, Brenda Richie, and of course Prince the Pom. The special was mainly a re-cap episode of season one, but we learned that La Toya is "allergic" to chocolate and macaroni & cheese. She went on to explain that to her, "allergic" means you don't like something. A tease of upcoming episodes revealed the shocking bombshell that Jeffre has asked La Toya to marry him! Season Two looks to be Toymazing!
July 13, 2013: To show support for all of her LGBToySoldiers, La Toya served as Grand Marshal of the San Diego LGBT Pride Parade.
"When I released my first song, I was delighted to learn that 90 percent of my base was comprised of gay men. It's an honor to be among the ranks of artists like Cher and Diana (Ross) who can say their fan base is the gay community." - LaToya in LGBTweekly
June 10, 2013: Based on the smash ratings of Life With La Toya the Oprah Winfrey Network has ordered additional episodes of ToyToy's reality show, which are slated to being airing in early 2014.
May 6, 2013: La Toya appeared on the season five finale of RuPaul's Drag Race so RuPaul could explain why he always introduced contestant Ivy Winters as "Ivyyyyy Winterrrrrrs". Ru explained that it came from the way La Toya introduced musician Edgar Winters in her legendary1989 Sizzling Spectacular Pay-Per-View concert!
Toy with RuPaul's Drag Race finalists Jinkx Monsoon, Roxxxy Andrews and Alaska.
Ru and ToyToy also announced that the name of their new duet is "Feel Like Dancing" and played a short clip! It was, as drag queens say, SICKENING!
April 13, 2013: La Toya Jackson's reality show Life With La Toya debuted on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network and smashed ratings records on the network.
The series has focused on La Toya's hunt for a new home, dating for the first time, her friendship with Kathy Hilton, shopping for candy, and even disguising herself and visiting a psychic to try and talk to Michael!
April 11th & 12th, 2013: La Toya appeared on "Good Morning America", "Katie" and "Entertainment Tonight" to promote the premiere of her OWNtv Reality Show "Life With LaToya".
On GMA she explained why she's doing a reality show:
"People think they know you and they have this misconception, or they'll make up stories about you and everybody starts believing these things. And I'd just had enough of it. And I said you know what? If you wanna talk, if you want to know about me let me show you who I am... just come follow me on 'Life With La Toya'."
Although her father Joe Jackson and mother Katherine will be seen on the show, La Toya said Michael's children are "not a part of the show at all". She described "Life With La Toya" as an "uplifting, jovial show. It's me! It's who I am!"
March 19, 2013: La Toya made the talk show rounds to discuss her firing from Celebrity Apprentice in appearances on The Jimmy Fallon Show, The Today Show, and The Wendy Williams Show.
On the Today Show, La Toya said that she "absolutely" regretted "very much so" not bringing Omarosa to the board room with her, which would have made Omarosa eligible to be fired.
"If I had to do it again, of course, I would definitely bring her back to the board room."
She went on to explain that "I truly believed that (Donald Trump) fell for (Omarosa's) crocodile tears" and that she believed that Trump and the producers would not have eliminated Omarosa because they needed "this villian" for the show.
Wendy Williams asked La Toya what she thinks of Omarosa and La Toya replied: "I don't."
March 17, 2013: La Toya was fired from "Celebrity Apprentice All-Stars" (full episode) after she made the baffling decision to not bring Omarosa with her to the boardroom. La Toya had been team leader for a soap opera-themed task, during which she fought constantly against the abrasive Omarosa, whom La Toya called "the most evil person" she has ever met, "no good, conniving, scheming, cut-throat" and a "witch" and that Omarosa "probably pulled the cord on (her deceased boyfriend) Michael Clarke Duncan". That last comment prompted Omarosa to issue a statement from her lawyers that she is going to sue La Toya for these "false, vicious, and defamatory" comments.
March 4, 2013: La Toya returned to RuPaul's Drag Race to judge a "We Are The World" themed challenge along with the Pointer Sisters.

March 6, 2012: A day that shall go down in HERstory, La Toya Jackson is now following us on Twitter!!
Are you following @LaToyaLove?
March 5, 2012: La Toya co-hosted the CBS daytime show "The Talk", brilliantly we may add. (Give Toy her own show, Hollywood!) La Toya joined the panelists to offer her opinion on a variety of hot topics including how she believes that it's not Michael Jackson's voice on his posthumous album, and that she "can't believe" that actor Kirk Cameron said horrible things about gay relationships:
"I just can't believe that he actually said that. Especially in the world that we're living in today. It's amazing to me because I think that there's so much hatred in the world today. That when you find people that truly love each other we should respect that and we should honor that."
"We grew up Jehovah Witness as everyone know and that (homosexuality) is kind of forbidden of course. I however, on the other hand, when I decided to venture off and leave the religion in my late twenties my frame of mind became very different. I looked at things differently, I saw things differently and it was a new world for me."
On how such hatred leads to gay bullying which leads to gay teen suicides:
"For someone this young to just feel this way, it's sending a bad message and the wrong message to children and I think we live in a society today that we need to get along as much as possible."
On Bobbi Christina's interview with Oprah so soon after the passing of her mother Whitney Houston:
"I know when my brother passed that people were very interested in what happened, what took place, what were our thoughts, what were we thinking and I think that they're waiting for an answer, they're waiting for some kind of information, and if you don't give it to them right away people will start making up rumors and saying all sorts of things so it's better to nip it in the bud right away and do the interview and get it over with."
"Oprah was very smart for trying to secure that first, of course we know that's big ratings and that's what this business is about."
La Toya's most newsworthy revelation was that Whitney Houston had a secret relationship with her brother Jermaine Jackson back in the day. "I'm not sure how married he was at the time" Toy coyly pointed out. View the entire episode here.
March 5, 2012: La Toya's albums "Heart Don't Lie" and "Imagination" were re-issued on CD by FunkyTownGrooves records, featuring several extended versions and remixes. It comes with a booklet featuring archive photos and liner notes by Matt at The Church of La Toya. Order a copy here:

"The choice of course, is Donald's."
On NeNe Leakes and Star Jones' nastiness:
"It's really sad when people take it to a totally different level. We're doing this for charity and I think we should always keep that in mind. But there are some that will just cut your throat to get ahead!"
La Toya on Donald Trump's possible presidential run:
"It's very courageous. I commend him for that. Simply because we're living here in America, of course, and it's the land of opportunity, do whatever you like, whatever you please. If you feel that you can accomplish that then by all means do."

NeNe's negativity towards La Toya in the lounge afterwards was classless and uncalled for. La Toya gracefully avoided the ugliness by raising her glass and gliding out of the room.

La Toya loves being an Access Hollywood correspondent for Dancing With The Stars because it keeps her mind off of Michael's death and she loves being up close to the energy of the dancers. She has always watched the show with her mother in the past.
She never felt Michael overshadowed her music career, because she was performing in Europe at the time so it worked out.
La Toya "never ever ever" regretted posing for Playboy, but didn't want to do it and was forced to by her management at the time. She thought she would be able to pose in lingerie, didn't want to get naked and was referred to as "Mother Teresa" on the set! During one shot her robe slipped down, exposing her nipple. Everyone loved the shot so much they flew it to Hugh Hefner in Los Angeles that day! It was the first Jackson Wardrobe malfunction!
October 20, 2009: La Toya appeared on Dancing With The Stars as part of a special dance tribute to her brother Michael. Watch here.
MOBO 2009 : La Toya appeared alongside her brother Jermaine to participate in a tribute to Michael at the Music Of Black Origin awards in Glasgow, Scotland. Watch parts 1,2,3 here along with her backstage interview with Peter Andre (who has claimed that he is recording an MJ tribute song with La Toya). "It's definitely something not to be missed!" (Thanks to PureToy!)
NBC has accounced that La Toya will be a special guest correspondent for Access Hollywood covering Dancing With The Stars! La Toya sat down for an interview with the entertainment news program and they were so impressed at how natural she was in front of the camera that they offered her this great new opportunity. After turning down a spot to compete on DWTS this season, it appears that hosting is much more Toya's speed! We'll be watching!
September 14, 2009: La Toya Jackson appeared at Millions of Milkshakes in West Hollywood to unveil her namesake shake! The store is known for naming their flavor combinations after huge celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan to attract paparazzi and draw publicity, so no wonder they invited La Toya to launch one of her own! The Official La Toya Shake (which it kinda sounds as if ToyToy may have been making up as she went along...) consists of raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, caramel, Skittles, ice cream, whipped cream, mixed nuts and a Cadbury chocolate Flake!
Check out our exclusive photos of the event on our special ToyToyShakeShake page!

"It's gonna be fabulous and taste great!"
September 11, 2009: "Solo artist and model" La Toya Jackson appears with Barbara Walters on 20/20 for her first sit down interview since Michael Jackson died. In it she reveals:Her feelings about her brother:
"I don't think we'll find a person as talented, a person who thought the way he thought. A person with the heart that Michael had....People aren't that way anymore. He was special. He wasn't God, but he was certainly God-like. He was the closest thing to a god that I knew."
How Michael looked in the casket:
"Absolutely fabulous... He was dressed all white pearl beads going across, draped across. A beautiful big gold belt... Like a belt that you win being a boxer... Full makeup... his hair was done beautifully, his makeup was done beautifully."
That Michael had ammended his relationship with his father Joseph and believes Michael would have wanted him to be involved in their lives.That Blanket is Hispanic.
"I said to Michael, I said: He looks Hispanic. And Michael said: He is."
That Michael's children will continue to be home schooled, and have never had any relationship with possible guardian Diana Ross:
"I know of course that Diana Ross is second in line for the children of course, and mother has spoken to her about things of that nature, but I don't wish to go into detail."
As to whether Diana Ross wants to raise Michael's three children:
"I think my mother knows the answer to that."
And La Toya blames Michael's death on all of the doctors who treated him:
"I blame any and everybody who was instrumental in Michael's life providing him with drugs because it was wrong. It was terribly wrong." "They're doctors! This is going against their license, Barbara. You don't do things like that."

She also told E! and the Insider that the Jackson family is "doing the best we can" and "it's a difficult moment"!

July 12, 2009: "Michael was MURDERED!" La Toya makes this shocking claim in an interview carried in the Daily Mail and News of the World. And she KNOWS who did it! She accuses Michael's handlers of keeping him drugged up to control him and alleges that they eventually murdered him for his money. La Toya goes on to discuss Debbie Rowe's lack of motherworthyness, Blanket's paternity, missing millions in cash from Michael's rented mansion, Michael's desire to quit music and become a movie director, and Michael predicting his own death at 50! If anyone can get to the bottom of this it's Officer Jackson! Expect more bombshells in the weeks to come!
July 7, 2009: La Toya attended the memorial for her brother along with her entire family at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Her words for Michael were printed in the program:
“Michael, I recall you sitting on a chair in your bedroom staring at the television watching the 1980 Grammy awards show, crying to me because you had won only one Grammy award and you said, 'Watch, La Toya, my next record I am going to sell more records and win more Grammys than anyone in the history of music... I will be the biggest and the greatest entertainer of all time.' You began to write that dream all throughout your bedroom, on the walls, on the mirrors, in your books and anywhere else you could find space. You started working much harder, creating sounds in songs that the world had never heard before, you started dancing until you would literally collapse. When most artists were trying to learn how to sing and do a two-step, you were singing and moonwalking. You took your dream to a much higher level and turned it into a reality, a reality of over 100 million records sold on that next album "Thriller." You thereafter continued to turn every one of your dreams into reality, while inspiring the world, and becoming the most recognizable, the most well-know, and the most loved person in the entire world.You’ve lived your dream, you’ve proven to us all that if we believe, you will achieve; you believed, and oh my, did you achieve! What you've accomplished is astounding - no one can ever possibly follow. Your dreams were so incredible that it made the world a much happier place to live, and the world wouldn't let you rest because they demanded your dreams to transport them to another place!You've done your work here Michael, you've entertained us for decades and there's nothing else that you can prove or accomplish here on earth. You taught us how to laugh, how to love and how to believe. God has called for you to come home, collect your wings and fulfill your demands in Heaven and continue your magic amongst the angels. Mike I love you deeply and I can't wait to see you perform again.Keep the magic going!!!"
After the memorial La Toya and her sisters Janet and Rebbie went across the street from the Staples Center to the Nokia Theater overflow viewing to say thank you on behalf of the family. YouTube video here and here.
July 2009: La Toya updated her official site with this special message about Michael's passing:
June 25, 2009: La Toya rushed to the hospital upon learning of her brother Michael's cardiac arrest and passing. Our hearts go out to La Toya and all the Jacksons and hope that the paparazzi and tabloids will give them all some space to grieve, an unlikely prospect.
June 2009: La Toya was to make an appearance in the new Sacha Baron Cohen movie: "Brüno"! Apparently she got tricked by the British comic as his gay Austrian entertainment reporter character and gets served sushi by naked Mexican gardeners. The scene has reportedly been cut from the film in the wake of her brother's passing.

Officer Jackson carried out numerous dangerous police functions: busting crooks and cuffing crackheads with surprising authority, delivering babies and consoling victims with her trademark compassion, while conquering her own fear of housecats. Her voice even lowered several octaves as she found new self-confidence! (Or was it from getting tasered!)
UPDATE: The show was cancelled by CBS after 3 weeks, La Toya's comeback appeal not enough to stop the show from getting crushed in the ratings by the American Idol tsunami. The remaining episodes may air this summer, or possibly Vh1, where it belonged in the first place!

<<What about Jack?>>
LaToya divorced her manager/husband Jack Gordon in 1996. The Universal Love believes that although some of LaToya's most glorious moments occurred while under his management, he also hit her with a chair and forced her to do things she didn't want to do. We love you, Toya, and are glad you're free now! Read the complete divorce details here.
In yet another predictable move for Jack, he reportedly is releasing a book of his own, where he will try and sell out "the secrets" of the Jackson Family, including an alleged Jackson Family monkey sacrifice! Sounds a lot like Jack doesn't have a publisher yet. Or a conscience.Jack Gordon at one point managed Elvis Presley Jr., who claims to be The King's Illegitimate son, and the newly re-nosed national skank: Paula Jones! Now we truly know what a complete scumbag Jack is, not that we ever thought otherwise... No doubt keep your eyes peeled for Paula's psychic infomercials*, Playboy** spread, and exotic club tour!Jack appeared on Extra saying that Paula once told him that she made up the whole thing Clinton Hotel encounter. Howard Stern gave him 2 lie detector tests, of which he passed one and failed the other.*How sad that our prediction came true! Jack "puppet master" Gordon eventually did book Paula a psychic line deal. Too bad nobody cared!**And even sadder, Paula posed for Penthouse!***PPS. Jack died in 2005 at age 66. Jack Gordon Wiki
