On The Jacksons: Next Generation, the sons of Tito Jackson – Taj, TJ, and Taryll – are stars of the reality show. They talk a lot about how important it is for them to live up to the name of Jackson and to protect it. The young men can’t help but to talk about their late mother Dee Dee, too. In 1994, she was murdered by her boyfriend Donald Bohana.
On the show, TJ Jackson says that following his mother’s death, Kris Jenner was like a mother to him. Back then TJ was dating Kris’ daughter Kim Kardashian. “At the time I was spending a lot of time with Kim and her family. So Kris was like a mother to me.” He added, “I’ll always respect and love her because she really embraced me and helped me recover.” The Jacksons: Next Generation airs Fridays at 10pm on Lifetime. Kris Jenner and her other daughter Kourtney Kardashian have already appeared on the show. Kim Kardashian will appear in the October 9 episode.
