Stop Press: La Toya Reunites With Bubbles!

Toy Toy's new status as the people's princess has been underlined by her latest act of selfless philanthropy. Just days after fanning the flames of Michael Jackson's memory by serenading Russia with a glorious live rendition of "Earth Song", the tireless humanitarian has captured the hearts and minds of millions around the globe by emotionally reuniting with her dead brother's chimpanzee. In a lucky coincidence, cameras were rolling to capture the moment and the footage is breathtaking. La Toya is the first member of the Jackson clan to visit Bubbles at the Florida ape sanctuary (cruel Janet is clearly too busy releasing flop albums to care) and she is genuinely overwhelmed by the occasion. I love it when Toy lovingly hoses the chimp down and tries to get his attention by loudly calling out her name. But the defining exchange begins at about 3:20 mins when Michael's favourite sister bursts into tears and asks Bubbles if he remembers her. It's simultaneously heartbreaking and hilarious. Some people question La Toya's intentions even though she's made it clear that her only mission in life is to free the world but I think she's completely dedicated to maintaining Michael's memory - even if it means postponing her sure to be #1 platinum smash hit album for another 9 years. Warning: This video is a real tearjerker. It actually made me cry!

Isn't she adorable? I love how La Toya persists asking Bubbles if he remembers her despite his clear disinterest and then maintains that he recognised her. LOL!

Toy Toy > Dr Doolittle

I Like that this was on the show "ET" when clearly Latoya looks exactly like ET.

Bubbles? Bubbles?... Buuuuuuubbles? You remember me, don't you Bubbles?

Poor Bubbles, I love his WTF? look on his face while Toy sobs pathetically. And I love it when she starts screaming out her name in his ear and he flinches and Toy takes that as a sign that he remembers her. Poor Bubbles is probably deaf in one ear now.

Toy Toy is such a sweet animal lover! Of course the haters will hate, but I can just imagine how emotional this must've been for her.

Oh no, this is just too sad. I hope that Toy Toy will make time to see Bubbes more often now, although I know that 20 years is nothing for a star of her stature. Perhaps Toy could do a special 2010 remix of 'Home' with some additional lyrics and maybe a few grunts from Bubbles, recorded live from his pen. It would be a smash!

Apparently several talk shows have attempted to contact La Toya to share her story, but she was out of cell phone minutes.

I think Toy is kinda sexy in her sporty outfit and I love her natural hairs (just after the shower) I think she's really emotive, even if its makes her a little ridiculous, but face it LaToya is the nicest person on earth, if she was 5 years old (she is 5 years old inside) you would say she's the most adorable girl ever!
