Jackson makes diva demands on ‘Big Brother’January 5th, 2009 - 2:09 pm ICT by IANS
London, Jan 5 (IANS) La Toya Jackson, sister of pop star Michael Jackson, is making diva demands on the “Celebrity Big Brother” show and is asking for a clause in her contract banning cameras from filming her without make-up in the morning.According to mirror.co.uk, the executives refused that, but have agreed to a 103,000 pounds fee.
A source said: “It was a remarkable request. ‘Big Brother’ is a 24/7 environment where everything is caught on film and the request was a bit much. La Toya is clearly very conscious of her appearance, but producers couldn’t accommodate the request as it was a bit unfair to the other contestants to say the least.”
She and her brother Michael have had surgeries and their looks have changed remarkably since the 70s.
A source added: “Not only does she look very similar to Michael - she even sounds like him with her squeaky, high-pitched voice.”
La Toya has been given slightly preferential treatment.
“It should come as no surprise that La Toya is in one of the best rooms. Producers tried to suggest that the bedrooms were on a first-come, first-served basis, but they were well aware that La Toya was going to be the first celebrity entering the ‘Big Brother’ house. To suggest that this is a coincidence is a bit much.”
