I ran into Tameka Raymond
at the Pink Power Awards in Atlanta last night August 15, 2014).
The awards event, billed as a ‘mastermind conference for women’ featured a ‘Great Gatsby’ theme and Tameka was there to present an award.
I got a chance to chat with Tameka to find out how she’s preparing for her upcoming stint on VH1’s Atlanta Exes, and while she’s a bit nervous about the show’s launch, she’s looking forward to proving that she’s more than just “Usher Raymond’s Ex-Wife’.
