For video star Ola Ray, it was the ‘Thriller’ of a lifetime

Millions lusted after her. Just as many envied her.

thrillersneakpeak_sTwenty-five years ago, Ola Ray bagged a dream job, and a piece of history, by landing the role of Michael Jackson‘s blushing love object in the video for “Thriller.”

Today, with “Thriller” bound for a new life as a Broadway musical, the 48-year-old Ray lives quietly as a stay-at-home mom in Sacramento, Calif.

She made little money from the clip and scored only a few major acting jobs in the last two decades.

“Everyone thinks I made millions,” Ray told the U.K.‘s Sunday Mirror recently. “But I don’t care. … I wouldn’t change a thing.”

Latoya: Michael never wants to see Neverland again – MiniB#63

Apparently the King of Pop’s older sister has flat-out said what we and many of the public speculated about concerning Neverland Ranch.

Many sites, including,, are carrying what Jackson’s older sister is reported to have said on Celebrity Big Brother.

“Michael still owns Neverland. He hasn’t been there in about six years – not since the trial,” she said on Celebrity Big Brother.

MJ with Blanket in Beverly Hills Recently – MiniB#62

From the “I mean, either give a decent report on him or shut the f*** up!” category: The online entertainment news media can’t keep their mouths shut about spotting the King of Pop Michael Jackson with his bright-eyed youngest (“Blanket”) in Beverly Hills.

Reports say the singer was seen at a medical center and was surrounded by fans upon leaving.

Simple, short report right? Nope.
My quarrel is not the reporting of such ‘non-news’ news because we all like to stay informed here. Not many things have caught my eye recently, but sometimes something happens for the umpteenth time to spark a need for release.
