The divorce papers have been filed, the attorneys have all been hired and now the good part begins. The full divorce documents have been revealed and it appears that Usher’s been gone long before our assumption of early this year. Divorce documents indicate that the two have lived apart since July 2008, spending not even a year together as a married couple after tying the knot August 3, 2007:
“The marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken,” read the documents, filed in Georgia’s Fulton County Superior Court.
“There is no reasonable hope of reconciliation.”
Typical divorce? I dunno. Strange thing is…Mrs. Raymond, who’s professed through her attorney’s to be a loving and selfless wife, hired a private investigator to trail Usher soon after he split. Usher’s attorneys are seeking those surveillance documents from Tameka, as well as any “notes, cards, letters, photographs, film, documents, tapes, voice recordings, gift, jewelry, clothes” or other evidence that reflects on Usher’s conduct during their marriage, as well as detective reports, photos or recordings that have resulted from either “surveillance or investigation.” They also seek “any and all diaries or personal notes kept…during the course of the marriage.”

I know you’re not surprised to hear that Atlanta is among the five worst cities in the U.S. when it comes to road rage incidents and aggressive driving habits. Ha! You can’t be. If you live here…you see it every day. Crazy “A”zz people cutting you off, speeding up so you can’t merge, high-beaming you for driving too slow. Yeah….all of that. We’ve got it bad here and I can only assume it’s because we spend half of our lives sitting in traffic.
“In any populated city in this country, you’ll find a lot of road incidents, arguments, whatever you’ll call it,” said Lt. Paul Cosper of the Georgia State Patrol. “And more the roads are congested, the more aggravated people will get. When they get aggravated, they’ll yell or start blowing their horn. The next thing, hand gestures get involved and it escalates from there,” Cosper said.
The way to defuse most road rage situations is easy, Cosper said: “You become a courteous driver.” (Source)
My favorite African proverb says: “There are two things over which you have complete dominion, authority and control….your mind and your mouth.” Notice that “Traffic” isn’t included in that list, so as you sit in traffic later today remember to be kind to your fellow drivers. If someone cuts you off, issue a friendly wave instead of the finger. Your efforts combined might actually move the ATL further down the list next year. That’s my PSA for the day….

Pain (+ his Autotunes thingy + his BIG ASS CHAIN) joined forces in a *cough* “rap” collaboration to open the Country Music Television (CMT) awards show, which aired last night. T.

Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and slimmed down comedienne Mo’Nique did a bit of clowning around backstage during the 2009 BET Upfronts back in April. They each took a moment to “Stanky Leg” it up for the cameras and Chilli issues a mini-message at the end. Cute!

The MARTA train operator who was caught texting and driving by a concerned twitterer (who captured the moment via the TwitPic above) *cough* <it wasn’t me!> has been suspended for three days (with pay?):
A MARTA suspended a rail conductor caught texting recently while at the controls of a train.
The conductor will be off the job for three days, the maximum penalty MARTA can impose, according to transit officials.
A MARTA rider posted photos on Twitter of the conductor text messaging while operating a train.
MARTA officials said they are reviewing current policies on texting in light of similar problems that caused serious crashes in other cities.
Safety on the train is a big deal….but so is twitter. Don’t sleep on it! No one is safe from the tweets.

Beware! Twitter Might Get You Fired
Sheree’ Whitfield of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is catching mad flack lately. Not only did she NOT receive the seven + figures she publicly anticipated during the airing of the first season of the show, but as I revealed to you a while ago, she gave up the fancy diggs shown in the first season for a more modest apartment home. A similar episode happened with fellow castmate NeNe Leakes, who was eventually investigated by Fox-5 News. *sigh* What is it with these real “housewives”? Bravo sure knows how to pick em…and we sure LOVE the drama!
Now, don’t get it twisted…I personally like Sheree but when you stick your nose in the air on national television, it’s kinda hard to draw sympathy from the masses when something like that happens. That being said, Sheree recently gave a play by play account of how/why/when she lost her home to foreclosure. The home has since been SOLD for mere pennies on the dollar to the highest bidder at auction. Check out what she had to say below: Continue Reading…
