THOME " IT 'S A SECRET BETWEEN MICHAEL AND ME " ****************************************************
Dr. Tohme Tohme, a former Michael Jackson financial advisor,
is the man who turned over more than $5 million of Michael
Jackson's money to the late pop star's estate, ABC News has
Dr. Tohme Tohme, inset, was an advisor to Michael Jackson
who held $5.5 million of "secret" money for the pop star.
Tohme, a former financial advisor to Jackson, did not return
calls from ABC News but told the Associated Press that
the money had been "a secret between Michael and me."
Administrators of Jackson's estate said in court papers
filed Friday that they recovered $5.5 million in cash
from "one of Michael Jackson's former financial advisers"
and also recovered "substantial amounts of tangible
personal property," not necessarily from the same
person. But Tohme said the "was not recovered."
"I had the money and I gave it to them.
It was a secret between Michael and me," he said.
Tohme said the money came from recording residuals and was
earmarked by Jackson for the purchase of what was to be his
"dream home" in Las Vegas. He told the AP that he was in
negotiations for the home when Jackson died.
"He said, 'Don't tell anyone about this money,'" Tohme said.
"But when he passed away I told them I had this money,
and I gave it to them." Tohme also turned over items from
the pop star's Neverland estate that were once scheduled
to be auctioned. Jackson estate administrators, attorney
John Branca and music executive John McClain, claim
Jackson's estate is worth more than $500 million and
that they are making business deals that could bring
in tens of millions more dollars that will benefit
Jackson's heirs. The recovered millions were announced
as Branca and McClain requested a "family allowance"
be given to Jackson's mother, Katherine Jackson, and
Jackson's three children, for whom she is temporary
guardian, "in order to ensure that the minor children's
needs for maintenance and support are met."

JURY SELECTION INFORMATION!!!
On the first day of his trial, Michael Jackson’s personal physician
fired his publicist for leaking jury selection information to a
celebrity gossip website.
On Wednesday, TMZ.com had posted what purported to be
proposed defense questions for potential jurors, a leak that Dr.
Conrad Murray’s attorney acknowledged came from their own
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor
said the questions were “bogus” but that he was concerned about
how information on the Internet would affect the answers potential
jurors give during jury selection.
Murray is accused of involuntary manslaughter for
giving Jackson a fatal dose of the surgical anesthetic propofol.
Defense attorneys told Pastor in chambers that a media
company hired by the defense had leaked six questions the
company had suggested for the jury pool.
None of the questions ended up in the final questionnaire,
which Pastor earlier ordered sealed.
“It is an embarrassment,” Ed Chernoff, Murray’s attorney,
told the judge. Chernoff apologized and said the company
would be fired.
After the hearing, Chernoff confirmed that the employee was
Miranda Sevcik, a Houston publicist who began working for
Murray and his legal team two days after Jackson’s death.
Sevcik declined to comment, beyond wishing the defense well.
On Thursday, 159 potential jurors were sworn in and screened
for financial hardship. Jury selection is expected to continue Friday.
Testimony in the case is scheduled to begin in May.
Here's a portion of the article that TMZ ran w/ the questions...
A central part of Dr. Murray's defense is that Michael Jackson
was a hard-core Propofol addict who hid his drug dependence
from the doc ... thus Murray wasn't operating with full knowledge.
Other questions laser in on what people think of the case,
with a heavy emphasis on social media.-- Do you have a blog?
If so, describe.-- Are you active on social networks. If so, which?
The answers will lead Murray's lawyers to spontaneous
comments of prospective jurors that could be more revealing than
answers they give in court.And the questionnaire asks:
"Do you financially support others outside your immediate family?"
Dr. Murray has had money troubles that could make him sympathetic
to certain jurors.Other questions include: "
At what age should a person be held accountable for their decisions,
actions and consequences."The defense is looking for people who
believe in personal responsibility, such as small business owners.
IT'S GETTING HOT IN THE OVEN HARVEY...
Beginning as a child star, as an adult she came to be known for her acting talent and beauty, and had a much publicised private life, including eight marriages and several near-death experiences. Taylor was considered one of the great actresses of Hollywood's Golden Age.
She was a Hollywood original to the end.
Elizabeth Taylor was laid to rest Thursday at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif., in a small, private funeral attended by friends and family that began 15 minutes after schedule – under instructions she left.
She even wanted to be late for her own funeral, a family rep said in a statement.
She was taught how to look and to speak and to walk and to stand and to breathe. But through it all, she learned about power: who had it, how to get it, how to keep it. When Louis B. Mayer once swore at Elizabeth's mother in a fit of rage, eleven- year-old Elizabeth shouted back, "You and your studio can go to hell!" She refused to apologize, and —amazingly—Mayer didn't fire her on the spot.
Truly, at that moment, a diva was born.
"FURIOUS LOVE" 'Furious Love' Recounts Elizabeth Taylor-Richard Burton Romance
As Richard Burton recounts when he first laid eyes upon her
"Three big movies; drinking with Bogie; flirting with Garbo . . ."
He recalled, I was enjoying this small social triumph, but then a
girl sitting on the other side of the pool lowered her book, took
off her sunglasses and looked at me.
She was so extraordinarily beautiful that I nearly laughed out loud, she was unquestioningly gorgeous. . . She was lavish. She was a dark unyielding largess.
She was, in short,too bloody much, and not only that, she was totally ignoring me.
Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor (February 27, 1932 – March 23, 2011)

SPEECH IS SILVER, BUT SILENCE IS GOLDEN
ONE NIGHT IN HOLLYWOOD WITH TRISTANYATTA
STOP TAPE 5:25 http://tinyurl.com/4b4e8hz
The value of silence is greater than that of speech.
Indeed, it is important to master the language but
to be silent is a sign of wisdom.
" Speech is of Time, Silence is of Eternity."
As with many proverbs, the origin of this phrase is obscured
by the mists of time. There are reports of versions of it dating
back to Ancient Egypt.
"Silence is the element in which great things fashion
themselves together; that at length they may emerge,
full-formed and majestic, into the daylight of Life,
which they are thenceforth to rule.
Not William the Silent only, but all the considerable men
I have known, and the most undiplomatic and unstrategic
of these, forbore to babble of what they were creating and
Nay, in thy own mean perplexities, do thou thyself
but hold thy tongue for one day: on the morrow, how
much clearer are thy purposes and duties; what wreck
and rubbish have those mute workmen within thee swept
away, when intrusive noises were shut out!
Speech is too often not, as the Frenchman defined it,
the art of concealing Thought; but of quite stifling
and suspending Thought, so that there is none to
Speech too is great, but not the greatest.
As the Swiss Inscription says: Sprecfien ist silbern,
Schweigen ist golden (Speech is silvern, Silence is golden);
or as I might rather express it:
Speech is of Time, Silence is of Eternity."
That fuller version - 'speech is silver; silence is golden',
is still sometimes used, although the shorter form is now
SPEECH IS SILVER , BUT SILENCE IS GOLDEN

CNN LARRY KING LIVE
Interview with Joe Jackson
Aired July 20, 2009 - 21:00 ET
THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE
IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
LARRY KING, HOST: Tonight, Joe Jackson exclusive --
live, unedited in his own words. For the first time
since his son died, what Joe knows about Michael
and drugs; challenges to wife Katherine's guardianship;
and the foul play he blames for M.J.'s death.
Who is Joe accusing?
Plus, the never before asked question and answer --
how he said good- bye to his son.
Joe Jackson exclusive is next on LARRY KING LIVE.
Joe Jackson, the patriarch of the Jackson family,
is in Las Vegas.
In Atlanta, is Leonard a lot of time, the music
and concert promoter and longtime friend of Michael Jackson.
Before we get started, I should say we got a lot of
e-mails, blog comments, Kings Things, Tweets, asking
if we paid for the interview. And the answer is simple
-- no, absolutely not.
Joe, I have -- I have not heard the answer to this
-- how did you learn of Michael's passing?
JOE JACKSON, FATHER OF MICHAEL JACKSON:
Well, I -- I learned that by some of the fans, you know.
They called me and they told me that the ambulance was
leaving Michael's house and it looked it was headed
toward the hospital. And he said the fire truck was
following the ambulance. And they said we are following
the fire truck.
That's how I learned.
KING: Wow! Did you turn the TV on right away?
JACKSON: No, I did not. I was trying to find out
more of the things, you know, by the fans and
that sort of the thing.
KING: Wow! So fans were the first to tell you?
JACKSON: Yes, they did. They always keep me abreast of
what's going on.
FURTHER DOWN INTO THE CONVERSATION
KING: Where is -- where is Michael's body?
JACKSON: I don't know. You'd have to ask somebody
that knows. I don't know. All I know is that...
KING: You're the father.
JACKSON: I was at the memorial and where
they took him from there, I have to find out.
I'll let you know later, Larry.
KING: OK. But as the father, one would think you
would have the most imminent right to know.
JACKSON: I do have that right. But I'm not talking
about that right now.
KING: OK. Jermaine talked to me about seeing Michael's
body and saying good-bye.
Did you get a chance to say good-bye?
JACKSON: Yes, I said good-bye to him when he was up
-- well, when he was up there in front of us, you know?
And I say -- I'm saying good-bye to him now. But --
and what the others say, that's what they say.
And what I'm saying is I do feel the loss of my son,
Michael Jackson, who was an international star all
over the world.
KING: But you -- you didn't get to see the body or
JACKSON: No, I did not.
KING: ...to the remains?
JACKSON: No I did not.
KING: Do you wish you could have?
JACKSON: I could have. But -- but I wanted to see Michael
-- I wanted to remember Michael alive, because I didn't
want to see him -- I didn't want to see him laying up
in a casket, you know?
KING: Yes, I understand that.
KING: If -- do you expect to be asked about burial?
JACKSON: Well, they could ask me...
KING: I mean, do you expect to be included in the decision?
JACKSON: Yes, I do expect a lot of things.
But a lot of things you expect don't ever happen.
KING: How true.
We're going to talk about lots of things. And we'll be
bringing in -- we have not forgotten your friend, Leonard,
right there. And we'll be bringing in Leonard shortly to
JACKSON: There you go.
KING: Hold on right, Joe.
Hold on.We'll be right back.

" WITHOUT HOPE WE ARE LOST "
Sadly, Sadly We live in a State of fear
Everyday we hear of war on the news, on the radio, televisions
and newspapers always of war.
We hear of nations hurting each other of neighbors hurting each
hurting each other and of children killing each other.
We have to stop living in fear of our own neighbor.
We must learn to live and love each other.
Before its too late, We have to stop .
I would like all of you now to take the hand of the person
to the left of you and to the right of you,
Go ahead, Right Now, I mean it. Don't be shy, Do it.
It starts now with the person next to you to the left
and to the right I mean it
Tell that person next to you that you care for them,
tell them that you love them .
This is what makes the Difference
