Tameka Raymond should be breathing quite a bit easier these days since all of the Michael Jackson drama has taken a bit of the spotlight off of her and Usher’s pending divorce…but I’m still following when I can. Recently, Tameka filed an answer to Usher’s divorce petition. In her response, Meka claimed that she was totally caught off guard by his filing of the divorce and was under the impression that things between them was just peachy. In court documents filed Monday in Fulton County Superior Court Meka claims that she “had every reason to believe her marriage was intact” and that two were “intimately together as husband and wife as recently as June 6.”
In Usher’s petition, he requests joint custody of the pair’s two young sons, Usher Raymond V, 1, 1/2 and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 6 months. But regardless of custody requests, word on the street is that Usher’s questioning the paternity of his youngest son and seeks answers. Continue Reading…
Fellow blogger and sister in the spirit Drama Dupree hit me up a few weeks ago for an interview on his Better Days Radio show. The show, hosted by Drama and Sir Daniel, aired last week and Drama send over a snipped of my interview. Mind you, I am not camera shy by any means, but radio? Umm….not my forte but I repped the “A” to the fullest. Drama and Sir Daniel asked me questions like, How Did You Get Into Blogging, What has changed most in Atlanta, and more. I shared my thoughts on Mike Vick and T.I. and admitted my heart belongs to Big Boi. Heeeeeey Twan! *waving*
Don’t get it twisted…I would never bash my president! President Barack Obama has been immortalized as a wax figure to be featured in Paris’ Musee Grevin wax museum. The figure was unveiled in front of the Eiffel Tower on Monday and was escorted by two real body guards. Tourists quickly gathered around to catch a glimpse of the U.S. President, totally unaware that it was a wax figure!
The Fake President + Two Live Bodyguards
“It looks really cool,” said American tourist Emily Artes. “Everyone was joking that he was actually here and that we were gonna take pictures with him.” The hot summer sun at the Eiffel Tower also threatened to melt the fake president’s face, prompting helpers to shade him with an umbrella.
The resemblance was so uncanny — down to the gray hair Obama is said to have acquired since the beginning of his presidential campaign.
After visiting France’s most famous monument, the statue traveled to Paris’ Musee Grevin wax museum, where it will stand alongside the likenesses of Nicolas Sarkozy, Angela Merkel and Vladimir Putin.
The sculptor says it wasn’t easy to create a model of a man that he had never met, relying solely on press releases and photos. That’s right… the creator of this masterpiece, Sculptor Eric Saint Chaffray had never even seen Obama in person! Saint Chaffray has been creating wax statues for the museum for the past 20 years, and has worked on several American presidents in the past.
Dressed in a dark suit, the wax statue of Obama looked very serious. “We’re presenting Barack Obama at the Musee Grevin as part of a gathering of heads of state, which is why he has kind of an official attitude, a little bit stiff,” Saint Chaffray said. (Source)
I was catching up on all the pre-awards show footage from the 2009 BET Awards that I missed and noticed this spoof video that Rocsi and Terrence J did. How cute is it that they remade snippets of all of the nominees? Love it!
