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.
[FLASHBACK: EXCLUSIVE! Hollywood Exes Plans Atlanta Spin-Off (Meet The Cast)]
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.

hit up the red carpet of the 2014 Golden Globe Awards last night with a hot new look (January 12, 2014).
The superstar crooner has faced the wrath of fans begging him to cut his ‘baby fro’ over the past few months, which he grew as part of his portrayal of boxer Sugar Ray Leonard in an upcoming film project.

Usher shed a lot of weight to get ‘boxer buff’ and now it seems he’s also shed his baby fro. The megastar is now rocking a more dapper, clean cut look, complete with ‘man bling’.
We’ve come to expect a certain amount of red-carpet fancy from Usher “Ershur” Raymond, and his oxblood Calvin Klein tuxedo at last night’s Golden Globes ceremony was right on point. But then he totally outdid himself by adding a diamond brooch.
This is a real breakthrough in man jewelry: It’s not just a ring, a pair of huge diamond studs, or even a Southwestern bolo tie, but a vintage-looking diamond brooch.
Before finally shedding his hated ‘baby fro’, Usher and his barber took fans through musical hair history with a few ‘throwback’ styles.

Usher Raymond was just one of many attendees for the premiere of Open Road Films’ ‘Justin Bieber’s Believe,’ held at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California last night (on December 18, 2013).

Raymond, who produced the new film along with Scooter Braun, kept his infamous mini-fro under wraps while rocking a derby but that didn’t stop people from noticing his slimmed down frame.

Director Jon M. Chu calls the new film a “transition movie,” giving audiences an inside look at Justin Bieber’s life as he records, tours and attempts to evolve under intense media scrutiny.
“This was about him transforming and growing,” Chu told MTV News about the film which is a follow-up of Bieber’s ‘Never Say Never.’

In the first photos released from his upcoming movie role in ‘Hands of Stone’, Usher Raymond finally reveals what that baby fro he’s been rocking is all about.
Having shed at least 30 pounds, the superstar crooner grew out his mini-fro and even covered up his many tattoos (with the help of a bit of movie makeup).

Photos of Usher portraying boxer Sugar Ray Leonard taken on the Panama film set over the weekend prove that the months of hard work the 35-year-old father of two has put into transforming his body has clearly paid off! Raymond was forced to drop 34 pounds for the flick, shrinking from 180 pounds to Leonard’s usual fighting weight of 146 pounds.

Sugar Ray Leonard, now 57 and long retired from the ring, was the first boxer to win over $100 million during his career. He won titles in five weight classes, from welterweight to light heavy weight. Usher and Sugar Ray are also both 5′ 10” and with his slimmed down frame, Usher is almost the spitting image of the legendary boxer.

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.
