La Toya Jackson Scene Restored on Brüno DVD

Wunderbar!

Brüno, the preening, Austrian celebrity wannabe created by Sacha Baron Cohen, finally gets to meet singer La Toya Jackson when Brüno is released on DVD on Nov. 17.

After the sudden death of Michael Jackson, a scene in which Cohen, disguised as the flamboyant Brüno, conducts an outrageous interview with an unsuspecting La Toya was hastily cut from the film. The scene, removed before the theatrical release, earlier had been viewed by critics and test audiences.

In the 90-second comic scene, now included as an extra on the Brüno DVD, La Toya, 53, arrives at a hilltop house in Los Angeles to be interviewed by Brüno, an alleged Austrian TV infotainment star. She fails to recognize Cohen, the British-born star of Borat, beneath his disguise and heavy accent.

LaToya Jackson Reveals Michael's Kids Are In Therapy

Four months after the death of their father Michael Jackson, his kids Paris, 11, Prince 12, and Blanket, 7, have turned to therapy to cope with their grief, Michael's sister LaToya Jackson tells London's Mirror newspaper.

"Prince just doesn't want to speak about it," LaToya said. "I do worry about him very much."

Meanwhile, his sister Paris "thinks and talks about her father all the time. She's doing very well, writes a lot and she wears his shirts every day," she said. "They still smell of him and it helps her feel close to him."


Michael's youngest child, Blanket, "is just a very sad, shy little boy," LaToya said. "He cries – he really does cry. It's so painful for him. No one can bring his daddy back and it hurts so much. They all go to therapy and I truly hope Prince especially will be able to open up."
