Who knew that two of America’s most famous families have a secret tie to each other? "Khloé was my brother Jackie’s secretary,” La Toya Jackson tells In Touch, on stands now, of reality star Khloé Kardashian. And Khloé, 28, didn’t just answer phones. La Toya, 56, says Khloé and her sisters — who dated two of Tito’s sons — grew close to their employers and are still “like part of my family.” La Toya’s now taking on the Kardashians' path with her own reality show, Life With La Toya, which recently debuted on the Oprah Winfrey Network, and she could learn a lot from America’s famous reality family.
“I’m really happy for the girls, that they were able to sustain themselves,” she explains. “I think it’s great they were able to do that.” After all the years of fame, “We’re friends,” La Toya says of Khloé. “Our families have integrated through the years.” For more, pick up this week’s issue of In Touch, on newsstands now!
