of The Real Housewives of Atlanta appeared on The Nate Berkus show a while back to reveal a few of her “Southern Belle” secrets.
I believe this aired back in April 2012, but since I don’t watch a lot of daytime television, this totally flew under my radar until loyal reader “DeirdreP” brought it to my attention.
Berkus was hilariously enamored by Park’s Donkey Booty, but the two managed to keep things in check by discussing classic southern delicacies like red velvet cake and sweet tea.

Despite initial reports that Usher Raymond
‘s stalker was locked up in a mental hospital, Darshaelle Jones-Rakestraw
is reportedly still walking the streets of Atlanta.

Jones-Rakestraw may be crazy but she’s not a fool! I’ve heard that the 27 year old woman has been laying low since a friend or family member stepped in to make sure she stays “offline” but with today’s technology… I’m not sure how long it will last!
But keep in mind, there’s still “snail mail” and Darshelle has proven that she writes as much as she types!
One thing I know for sure though… is that Usher was absolutely TERRIFIED when his biggest fan showed up on his doorstep. This is no laughing matter folks. Especially considering there are children involved!
Listen to the newly released 911 call placed on the day Jones-Rakestraw showed up at Usher’s home… Continue Reading…
attended Debra Lee’s Pre-BET Awards Celebration Dinner during the 2012 BET Awards weekend at Union Station on June 30, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.
The sexy songstress didn’t miss the mark this time, opting for just the right amount of sexy with a lil black dress paired with Christian Louboutin heels.
CiCi has been spotted flying solo for quite a while now but you’ll never catch her sitting in the corner sippin’ on alone because Ciara definitely knows how to work a room!

Real “housewife” of Atlanta Nene Leakes
and her faithful ex-husband Gregg took on Hollywood for the 2012 BET weekend.
The cute couple, who faced a bit of a bump when Gregg’s girlfriend spoke out last week, were spotted frolicking all over West Hollywood and decided to hit up Kevin Liles’ swanky BET Awards kick-off party, hosted by Grey Goose Cherry Noir.
Clearly we are not at all surprised to see the pair, for we ALLLLL know by now that they never really broke up…. right?

VH1’s Single Ladies is moving right along without the help of Stacy Dash
and while Densie Vasi, her replacement, still hasn’t quite captured the hearts of fans, at least there’s Lisa Raye’s sub-par acting to keep them entertained.
There also have been quite a few cameos this season to keep your mind off of the obvious lack of talent.
This week it’s Tony Rock, Lauren London, Romeo Miller, Lala Vasquez and Cuba Gooding, Jr.’s brother… (his name escapes me at the moment).
The title of the episode happens to be the last words uttered by Lisa Raye to her former boo Malcolm when he gives her a bit of news she doesn’t really want to hear.
In case you missed it, check out the full episode of Single Ladies below… Continue Reading…
It was a hot time in downtown Atlanta last night during a viewing party for the 3rd episode of Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta
While a group of people assembled at a spot located on Auburn Avenue to have a good time and discuss the outcome of the show, one “fan” in particular approached Joseline Hernandez and bluntly asked her why did she have an abortion.
Details are sketchy as to who threw the first punch, but apparently Jose pushed the girl and the ATL chick promptly issued her a beat down.
Additional details about the fight as well as video from the scene under the cut PLUS watch the episode that ignited the altercation… Continue Reading…
Just for the record… I love all my readers. Every last one of y’all… but like Iyanla Vanzant
that time… ‘when you see “CRAZY” coming, cross the street’!
That being said, Darshelle Jones-Rakestraw, aka Usher Raymond’s stalker “wife,” is no stranger to StraightFromTheA.com and while we’ve never met, she’s frequented the site and has often commented under the names “Darshelle” or “Khavinna”.
Last Saturday (June 30th), Darshelle sent me an email (which was cc’d to President Barack Obama) containing a list of 39 questions.
There was no explanation, but I’m assuming Darshelle is preparing her defense for “allegedly” stalking the superstar singer.
