As I type this, Usher Raymond
and his ex-wife Tameka Foster Raymond
are in a Fulton County Superior courtroom as their custody battle resumes.

As 5 year old Usher V (‘Cinco’) recovers from nearly drowning while in the care of their superstar father, Tameka is holding no punches and seeks to resume custodial control over her two children Usher V and 4-year-old Naviyd.
Usher won primary custody of the couple’s two children last year after a bitter court battle where many were skeptical about details of the judges decision.
Tameka re-filed for custody modification earlier in May after also filing an appeal of the prior decision. Neither case has been heard.
The custody issues came to a head when lil Cinco nearly drowned in Usher’s pool Monday after being stuck in a drain. That’s why she decided to file for an emergency hearing on the matter.
“Her concern is more about how he prefers to leave them with third-party caregivers over her. She wants to be able to take care of the kids while he’s gone,” attorney Angela Kinley said Thursday.

Jaheim recently released a hot new video entitled ‘Age Ain’t a Factor’ celebrating fabulous women over the age of 40.
“‘Age Ain’t a Factor’ is all about [Vivica Fox] and women in her category that strongly represent our 40-plus sisters but look like young dime pieces,” says Jaheim.
In the video, directed by Atlanta’s own Derek Blanks, Jahiem enlists Vivica A. Fox, LisaRaye and Cynthia Bailey as examples of his over 50 dimes.

The silky-voiced R&B crooner pays tribute to over 40 dimes, as he portrays a photographer who shoots the 3 lovely ladies for an “Ageless Beauty” feature for ESSENCE magazine.
Jaheim makes it clear that women only get more beautiful with time.

Joseline Hernandez of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta is featured in the recent issue of Rolling Out Magazine.
Now coming into her own and reportedly marrying Stevie J, Hernandez sat down for an interview with RollingOut and dished on becoming a pop icon like Michael Jackson [her words], her connection with her “daddy” Stevie J, and sent a special message to people like Tamar Braxton, who she believes is jealous of her success.

[Sidebar: I don’t care what they say or who says it… I need receipts before I buy that marriage story.]
On Stevie J:
“I think Stevie and I are infatuated with each other. Because things go right but I curse him out and I slap him; everybody knows that. I think he’s like my boyfriend. I guess it’s like a relationship. I guess we go together. […] I mean we do go together — it just works. I never met a guy that everything just works out. I’ve had a lot boyfriends but that one — we just work out.”
Besides all that though, the LHHATL star channels her inner supermodel in the shoot, shot by Atlanta photographer Dwayne Rogers.

Usher Raymond and Tameka Foster Raymond‘s oldest son, Usher Raymond V aka ‘Cinco’ (pictured above right with brother Naviyd) is reportedly recovering in an Atlanta area hospital after nearly drowning at his father’s home earlier this week.
EOnline reported the following yesterday:
A reported friend of Foster’s took to her local Atlanta blog recently to give an update on the 5-year-old’s condition.
My site has often been referenced as a source by many huge outlets, but never have I been referred to as a “friend” of xyz’s…
And while Tameka and I are not mortal enemies but I wouldn’t consider us “friends”.
My long time readers are aware of my history with Tameka and how my opinion of both her and Usher changed when I attended their first round of child custody hearings.
There’s a scandal brewing between these two and with Usher’s image on the line, you can best bet that ‘Olivia Pope’ will be the case ‘spinning’ the news in his favor. It’s expected.
But a “friend” though? 😯 Yeah… anyway.
Here’s the tea on Raymond vs. Raymond Part 75347 (I’ve lost count)… Continue Reading…
Beyonce‘s hair was the talk of twitter as she revealed her new cropped ‘doo online last night (August 7, 2013).
To the shock and awe of many, the hot mom shed her long luxurious weave/lacefront wig but it’s not like she hasn’t switched it up in the past (i.e. braids, color etc). But this time was different.
The singer posted a series of photos to Instagram showing off her extreme ‘chop,’ rocking a short blonde pixie with a deep side part and smooth finish.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta
isn’t well known for recruiting real live ‘housewives’ so this comes as somewhat of a shock to me.
Mynique Smith, wife of former Atlanta Falcons player Chuck Smith, is the unidentified ‘newbie’ who was spotted hanging with the ‘wives’ earlier today.
