The series Life With La Toya premieres Saturday night at 10:30 p.m. Eastern time on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network. It will document La Toya’s career and family life.

Though the OWN website’s official description of Life With La Toya describes her as a “fun-loving aunt,” don’t expect to see much of Michael Jackson’s three kids on the show. La Toya tells ABC News Radio, “There is a quick clip of them in the show and we were in Indiana at a baseball game and the kids happen to be there…but as far as being a part of the show and in the series, absolutely not.”

La Toya laments the fact that her family became fractured following Michael’s death in 2009. She says, “I was always told when a loved one dies that it kind of destroys a family, and there’s not as much togetherness as it was before. Well, I never believed that. And I experienced it when my brother passed. I don’t know what happened, but everybody had their own opinions. It’s not the way it used to be.”
