I know that there have been quite a few false alarms, but my sources have verified that as of November 4, 2009, Usher Raymond IV has officially gotten that monkey off his back!
The divorce filed against Tameka Jonelle Foster Glover Raymond Jackson Brown is now complete and each are free to go their separate ways. According to Fulton County Superior Court where the divorce was filed, the final judgment and decree has been entered.
Two of my favorite people were on television the other night and I totally missed them! Monica AND Celebrity Photographer Derek Blanks hit the stage on the Mo”Nique show earlier this week and it was like a family affair. Mo Nique invited Monica’s mom onstage for a mini interview and Monica’s boo Rocko even came out. During Derek’s interview he seemed a bit uncomfortable. He’s so accustomed to being behind the camera that I’m sure it was a bit unnerving, but Mo quickly helped ease his nerves. That’s why I love them both so much! Support is key!

Grammy award winner and another of my personal favs, Mary J.

A portion of Rihanna‘s 20/20 interview with Dianne Sawyer aired on Good Morning America this morning amidst all the hoopla about it being in her first televised interview since being battered by former boyfriend Chris Brown. In an emotional sit down with Dianne Sawyer, Rih Rih explains how she feels obligated to speak out about the incident in hopes of letting other women going through the same situations know they are not alone:
“There are a lot of women who experienced what I did, but not in public. I just felt like ‘Oh my God, here goes my little bit of privacy. Here I am the whole world knowing.'”
The pop star said how it was “embarrassing” that Brown was the type of person she fell in love with.
So far in love. So unconditional that I went back. It’s humiliating to say this happened. To accept that? It’s a traumatizing experience…
