LaToya Jackson says she and her family are normal, just like everyone else.
While promoting her new OWN series, "Life With La Toya," recently, the "Starting Over" author said people and their misconceptions, as well as rumors, led her to appear on a reality series.
"That's one of the reasons I'm doing this show. People think they know our family and they're always judging and saying all these things about us (these misconceptions). It's like, let me show you who I am. Let me tell you who I am and then you can judge me," she told KTLA. "We're just like you guys. We're normal."
Beyond Jackson family rumors, misconceptions and scandals, La Toya went on to say that her show is about helping people to realize that "it's never too late to start over."
"I want women out there to know that it's never too late to start over. No matter what you go through. No matter how many obstacles. No matter what you're confronted with. You can start over and over and over again until you feel that you are getting it right," said Jackson.
