Tameka Foster Glover Raymond is airbrushed to the heavens covers the April 2011 issue of Sister2Sister magazine where she goes in depth about the plastic surgery procedure that almost cost her life.
So the story goes that Usher had to leave the 2009 Grammy awards unexpectedly and canceled a planned performance at Clive Davis’ Grammy party after his wife at the time, Tameka Foster Glover Raymond suffered cardiac arrest while attempting to get a cheapie nip/tuck in a 3rd world country.
All is well that ends well and while Tameka recovered, Usher jetted back to the states. Tameka spent a few days in a Brazilian hospital and eventually returned home… alone (but alive) after almost suffering a deadly fate for a flatter tummy.
In her recent interview, Mrs. Raymond reveals that it was all her nanny’s fault that she went to Brazil and once there…. it was the nanny (a former Brazilian “nurse”) who convinced her to have the “inexpensive” [read.. "CHEAP"] procedure. [insert side-eye here]
I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried… Continue Reading…
Word on the curb is that NeNe Leakes is not happy about her bikini body [photos].
Despite already having had liposuction on her thighs, hips and stomach, the 40-something reality diva is still not happy with the way she looks and is determined to have an even leaner look.
Leakes reportedly feels some kinda way about those poolside photos of her sitting poolside at a Miami hotel wearing a neon green bikini top and denim shorts and now she wants to go back in for another round under the knife.
[Sidebar: God gave you what he wanted you to have. Is it really THAT serious? Have we all forgotten how Tameka Foster Glover Raymond almost kicked the bucket for the sake of a flatter tummy?]
But I digress…

Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Phaedra Parks and her adorable hubby Apollo Nida were spotted boo’d up on the “blue” carpet of Bravo’s Upfront awards last week in Chicago (March 30) along with newlyweds Cynthia Bailey & Peter Thomas:

Is matching mugshots the “in” thing nowadays for couples? Does LOVE equate trouble with the law?
We have T.I. and Tiny, Gary Coleman (R.I.P.) and that crazy redheaded chick and now we have Making the Band alum/synthetic wig Model Sara Stokes and her hubby Tony Stokes.
Although all were arrested for varying offenses, Tony was arrested last week after he allegedly choked and beat Sara (again).
If you recall, Tony beat the brakes of Sara back in 2009 and she was arrested for allegedly stabbing him during the fight. Now Tony’s mug can join his wife’s in the mugshot hall of shame since he was arrested after yet another dispute between the two last weekend.
Details & matching mugs below: Continue Reading…
Waka Flocka Flame took a moment out of his hectic schedule last week to make a special fan’s dream come true.
As you know, The Make a Wish Foundation grants wishes to terminally ill children and 16 year old Kiyana was recently granted her wish to meet the popular rapper during her trip to Atlanta.
On the day of her arrival, Waka Flocka Flame surprised the teen when he knocked on the door of her Ritz Carlton hotel suite pretending to be room service.
The sixteen year old squealed with excitement when she opened the door to see her favorite rapper standing in the doorway.
Check out more photos PLUS watch the touching video of Waka Flocka shocking the teen below: Continue Reading…
I’ve been a fan of Musiq Soulchild for so dayum long that I can even tell you what I was doing when I first heard his hit “Just Friends” from his first album Aijuswanaseing…. but that’s personal so I won’t go there.
I had the pleasure of dining with Musiq (real name Taalib Johnson) yesterday at Maggiano’s in Buckhead as we broke bread together in the private dining area (along with 29 other invited guests).
Musiq discussed the details of his sixth album MusiqintheMagiq and played the video for the album’s single “Anything” feat Swizz Beatz (click HERE if you haven’t seen it.).
Musiq explained the song’s meaning:
“‘Anything’ is really about jealousy and insecurity. In relationships, it’s not wise to automatically assume that whenever you feel suspicious about someone, that something negative is going on.
If a man is saying and showing that he loves you, then give him some credit and have a little faith.”
Ok… great advice!
Musiq and I sat down for a lil one on one time, where he shared details regarding his decision to make Atlanta his home. He also gave more words of wisdom to new artists who travel here in hopes of shining in the “A” aka “Black Hollywood”.
