Women Who Make Us Ask WTF?: Debbie Rowe

Now that The Gloved One is good and buried (we think), the Michael Jackson death story is sure to be over, right?  Wrong.  Now the media can frantically begin attacking the next event in this saga - who gets custody of the kids?

Which leads us to this week's WTF, California's most famous womb renter and the mother of two of Jackson's kids, Debbie Rowe. 

Rowe claims she gave birth to MJ's two older children as a favor to Michael because she knew he would make such a wonderful dad who would one day wrap his children's faces in masks and dangle them outside hotel windows.  Now a horse breeder with her own ranch, Rowe frankly admitted to a British paper that, "I was just the vessel...just like I stick the sperm up my horse, this is what they did to me. I was his thoroughbred."

Thanks for the image.

Rowe seems unsure of what she wants in this life, going to court to have her parental rights terminated, then reinstated.  And while she certainly has lived well off her job as Michael's baby mama (her ranch is worth millions), she also thinks she has the right to be completely left alone in this mess, going so far as to curse out the paparazzi.

There's not one coherent statement I can make about this woman.  Is she a gold digger?  A loon?  A fame whore?  Or a recluse who would rather spend her days inseminating her horses?  And, perhaps most importantly, will she finally end up being a mother to her kids?  The answers for now are uncertain, but what is definite is that Debbie Rowe deserves a big ol' WTF.

Well, she's getting another $4 million from the Jackson family to stay out of the picture.


That's called a Jackson family investment in the future.
As Michael's heirs, those kids will be $$ machines until they're all 18. And maybe by then they'll have some sort of exploitable talent!

Uhh....she doesn't look like she runs that much.
