Vanity Fair produced a double cover for their September issue. The covers memorialize Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett who died on the same day. In today's Michael news, it was reported the Jackson family is considering a third autopsy to look for evidence of foul play. Knowing in graphic detail what is invovled in an autopsy, I think this is a mistake. I know Michael's body is just a shell, but I think the mutilation needs to stop and they should look to lay him to rest. They can still launch a private investigation; they should certainly look at a lot of those other doctors who interacted with and prescribed for Michael.
You might recall, Michael Jackson and Tatum O'Neal dated for a time during their teenage years. Well, more on that later. Anyway, the Vanity Fair story contains an interview with Ryan O'Neal, Tatum's father and Farrah's longtime boyfriend, where he confessed he tried to hit on a hot blonde at Farrah's funeral. He says he saw this stunning woman come up to him at the funeral right after he finished putting Farrah's casket in the hearse, and he asked her for a drink (and more). He was shocked when that woman said, 'Daddy, it's me--Tatum!' Apparently Ryan had not seen his daughter in years and did not recognize her. Disgusting, isn't it? It is also worth noting, Ryan was allegedly livid Michael Jackson's death eclipsed Farrah's in the media.
Now back to Michael and Tatum. Michael was reportedly smitten with Tatum, but their relationship had problems because he refused to have sex with her. Michael wanted to remain a virgin until he married or until he was at least deeply in love with someone who would be there for the long term. Tatum reportedly tried to seduce him on a regular basis and cheated on him while they were together. Michael knew she wasn't the one; in her autobiography, Tatum admits to smoking opium and participating in orgies when she was only 13.
