If you follow me on twitter, you may have caught my tweet about running into my arch nemesis in the Belvedere VIP Lounge during the final night of the Essence Festival.
Well, needless to say, I almost gagged choked when Usher’s ex decided to approach me with glass in hand, initiating a full on lovefest and a detailed discussion about our historic connection.
One thing’s for sure, I learned a lot that evening. The most important being that Belvedere’s effects can be like truth serum to some.
Allow me to share with you guys the FIVE things I learned straight from the mouth of Tameka Foster Glover Raymond on the 4th of July in the Belvedere VIP Lounge:
5. Tameka loves vodka and Belvedere punch is DELICIOUS! I know this not only because it was what I was sipping on, but because Tameka told me over… and over… and over again. When Meka approached me, she was upset that I’d put her on blast for being at the bar and said that I was insinuating that she was a lush. I had to totally remind her that I too was at the bar gettin my fill of free belve… *sigh*
4. Tameka loves her kids and never leaves them with strangers. In fact, for whatever reason, she felt the need to assure me they were safe & sound with “[insert name here]”… I honestly don’t even know why she told me this. It’s not like I’m child protective services or something. Actually I could care less if Tameka chooses to fly all around the country and party all night while her kids are at home with a trusted neighbor. That’s her business…. not mine.
3. The post I wrote last week about Usher selling her crib is totally true. In fact, Tameka says she’s tired of it anyway and has her eye on a “cute lil mansion” in buckhead. Maybe she’ll invite me to the housewarming now that we’re best buds…
2. Tameka is still somewhat concerned about her appearance and even said she’d try lipo again if “it hadn’t almost killed my ass.” As we were posing for the twitpic that solidified our truce, Meka whispered in my ear that I should tell everyone that she’s “fierce” and wears great shoes. I don’t disagree with either of those assessments, however, she should start to believe her own hype and quit relying on others to tell her that. [IMO…from one “friend” to another]
And the number ONE thing I learned from Tameka Foster Glover Raymond on July 4th 2010 in the Belvedere VIP Lounge at the Essence Festival in New Orleans?
Tameka swears that it wasn’t her who threatened me with bodily harm under the guise of the alias “Margaux Taylor,” although she did admit to knowing the person who the info was traced to and having them on her payroll at the time. Case closed.
As we hugged and twitpic’d proof of our standoff, Tameka lovingly whispered in my ear… “now you can call off your b*tch attorney.” [Sidebar: I’m sure my attorney will love to read that assessment of her services. Proves she did her job well!]
I must say that this was my most interesting encounter during the Essence Festival weekend. It even exceeded my Tyler Perry endorsement. LOL!
I’m so blessed to have such wonderful experiences and I learn so many new things everyday! The moral of this story?
Squashing beef can only be accomplished if Belvedere is involved…
