Tameka and Usher in Happier Days

Tameka and Usher in Happier Days

We reported a few days back that Usher Raymond was to file for divorce from his wife Tameka Foster-Raymond; we have to ask if Usher divorcing his wife came as a shock to you. The once happy couple has two children and was married for just two short years.

Tameka has had a bad time recently, earlier this year; the stylist suffered a heart attack while undergoing cosmetic surgery, let us hope that she is not too stressed over this divorce. According to E! Online, Tameka’s lawyer said, “She’s been a loyal wife. She’s trying her best to take the high road and not attack him.”

Let us get real here, this is a celebrity marriage, and lasting two-years is good going. This is sad but it is the truth, it is very rare that a celebrity marriage will go the distance, there are only a few that have gone the distance.


Bishop T.D. Jakes

Bishop T.D. Jakes

Pastor T.D. Jakes says he narrowly avoided being killed in a natural gas explosion at his home – all because of a last-minute change of plans.

According to the Associated Press, Jakes told thousands at Sunday’s service at his church — The Potter House — that he would have been getting dressed near the blast last week had he not suddenly had the feeling he should call off a planned meeting.

Instead, he wasn’t anywhere close to the blast centered in a sunroom of his house in Fort Worth. No one was injured.

Fire Department Lt. Kent Worley said Sunday that investigators ruled the blast accidental. He said the sunroom had a gas-fired pool heater and a large gas-fired barbecue grill.

Jakes praised God for keeping him safe and described his situation as “inconvenient, but alive.”


President Obama

President Obama

*Not to be outdone by NBC’s successful two-night Obama-thon earlier this month, ABC News says it will go prime-time next week with its own White House special.

The network announced Monday it will present an interview with President Barack Obama on health care issues in a special to air June 24 at 10 p.m. Eastern, on two-hour tape delay.

Unlike Brian Williams’ steering of “Inside the Obama White House,” which followed the president on a Friday and edited the footage for broadcast the following Tuesday and Wednesday, ABC News’ Charles Gibson and Diane Sawyer will moderate the health care discussion with a live audience, and also take questions submitted by viewers.

That morning, Sawyer will also interview Obama for her show, “Good Morning America.” Gibson will anchor that evening’s edition of “World News” from the White House Blue Room.




Several weeks ago, there were reports that Rihanna was into Andrew Bynum of the Los Angeles Lakers. This week, there’s talk that she’s trying to get with his freshly-defeated Orlando Magic opponent Rashard Lewis.

The New York Daily News’ Gatecrasher column claims Riri’s interest in Lewis was the reason she showed up at Game 4 over the weekend. Her ex-boyfriend and current alleged abuser, Chris Brown, was also at the game.

A source told Gatecrasher: “Rihanna is trying to get to know Rashard. She’s digging on him, and she hopes the feeling is mutual.”

As for the past rumor about Bynum, the source added: “Rihanna and Andrew are just friends, and they have been for a while. It’s Rashard who she wants. She thinks he’s hotter than hot.”

The column further reports:

In a bid to avoid Brown – who has been accused of assaulting the singer in February – Rihanna left straight after the game, and spent much of the half-time break in a hospitality lounge.

Brown reportedly spent much of the game sneaking glances at his former girlfriend, and while she stayed away during the break, he came over to her friends to shake hands.

A source said: “Chris was definitely trying to make the situation less awkward. He was trying to be very grownup, and wanted Rihanna to see that as well.”

Meanwhile, Brown returned to Orlando’s Amway Arena for Game 5 with a Rihanna look-a-like sporting white sunglasses and wild hair. Turns out it was 18-year-old rapper/singer Teyana Taylor.
