I post last Summer that an Atlanta version of ‘Hollywood Exes’ was in the works and exclusively revealed that it would be anchored by none other than Tameka Raymond
(Usher’s ex-wife) and guess what… I was right.

My cast prediction was accurate (at the time) but there have since been some changes.
In addition to Tameka, there’s Monyetta Shaw (Ne-Yo’s ex), Christina Johnson (Ceelo Green’s ex), Sheree Buchanan (Ex Atl Falcon Ray Buchannan’s Ex) and instead of Idris Elba’s ex (who I heard was too boring for tv), there’s now Torrei Hart (Kevin Hart’s ex).
You guys will have yet another Atlanta-based reality show to add to your watch list soon as VH1 just officially announced that there is in fact an “Atlanta Exes” spin-off in the works which will air sometime this Summer 2014.

recently held an intimate gathering of family, friends and supporters at her Atlanta home in honor of her birthday (January 1, 2014).
The divorced mother of 5 had a lot to celebrate for her new year/birthday. She made it through a very stressful 2013 and came out relatively unscathed.
In 2013, Tameka fought a good fight during her lengthy custody battle with her ex-husband, Usher Raymond, she also had to go through the emotional turmoil of almost losing another child to a water accident while he was in his father’s care.
Last year, Raymond mourned the loss of her son, Kile by developing The Kile’s World Foundation in his honor. She also fought for tougher boating laws, and stood side by side with Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal last April as he signed the bill to pass The Kile Glover Boat Education Law.
Tameka also ‘reportedly’ joined the cast of Atlanta’s version of Hollywood exes and a few of her ‘rumored’ co-stars were also there to celebrate her big day.

In honor of her deceased son, Kile Glover, Tameka held a 5k run/walk event last Saturday morning (November 30, 2013) and hundreds of friends, family members and supporters turned out in freezing weather.
Kile Glover was only 11 years old when he was killed in an unfortunate boating accident on Lake Lanier in July 2012. The talented youngster had a love of music & the arts so Tameka dealt with her grief by honoring her son by forming The Kile’s World Foundation in January 2013.

Proceeds from the race will support Kile’s World, whose mission is to give underprivileged kids access to the arts. It is Tameka’s hope to one day build a school in honor of her deceased son.
Supporters included: Cynthia Bailey & Peter Thomas of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Syleena Johnson and Monifah of R&B Divas, several of Tameka’s family members and many more.
