I digress, this post is about forgiveness, which doesn’t seem to be part of the vocabulary of most Bravolebrities and VH1 showboats. However, Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi is turning the tables and making amends with one time frenemy and Atlanta Exes star Tameka. What’s next? Will Usher follow suit?
Reality stars have unfortunately become synonymous with sex tapes so I shouldn’t say I’m surprised to learn that there’s allegedly an Usher and TamekaRaymond sex tape circulating around just waiting for Vivid the highest bidder to snap it up.
Reports are saying that when Usher was married to the Atlanta Exes star, they made a sex tape, and it’s gotten into the hands of someone trying to make a quick buck! They believe the tape was stolen way back in 20o9 when someone broke into Usher’s car and made off with his designer luggage – the contents of which included jewelry, several cameras and two laptops, on one of which we can presume was the sex tape.
The Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star is friends with Tameka Raymond is spilling all about Usher’s infamous exes’ crazy ways! And they are crazy. “I know Tameka. I know she’s crazy,” Kirk laughs.
“She’s off the chain! I knew Tameka before she was married to Usher; I knew her before she was married to the other guy, Brian,” Kirk explains. “She’ll go off, and she’s territorial. She’s wild! She’s cool though, at least we’re cool, but she’ll go off on your ass.” We’ve noticed…
I imagine being married to someone famous is not always a walk in the park, but Atlanta Exes and Hollywood Exes have shown us that being divorced from a huge star comes with a plethora of challenges as well.
Tameka Raymond, formerly married to Usher, is one of the driving forces behind new hit show Atlanta Exes. Already making a name for herself on the show as a drama starter with a ‘don’t care who I piss off’ attitude, Tameka’s ultra-famous ex is now speaking out about his former wife participating in a reality show which could very possibly put him and their former marriage in the hot seat!
There’s been rumors that Usher was extremely unhappy about Tameka potentially airing dirty laundry by appearing on the show, and he was allegedly worried that her inclusion in the reality TV world could damage his reputation.
Usher denies all this! “No, no. I have no feelings about it whatsoever,” Usher insists. “Actually, I haven’t even seen it.” Ushers two children with Tameka will not be part of the show.
“It is exciting that the continued success of Hollywood Exes has allowed us to expand this popular franchise into additional cities,” shares VH1‘s EVP Susan Levison. “Atlanta is truly enjoying a moment in the spotlight, so taking the Exes brand down South was a natural evolution. This dynamic cast truly defines what it means to be a ‘mover and shaker’ in the Atlanta social scene .”
VH1 promises us “fabulousness, ambition, love, and drama.” I’m anxious to see if this show fares well. Hollywood Exes has a small – but loyal – fan base. VH1 hasn’t promoted Atlanta Exes much, but reality shows based in Atlanta usually do well, so we shall see. Atlanta Exes premieres August 18 at 9 PM ET/PT on VH1. Meet the cast and watch the extended trailer below.
Someone at Time Magazine, who has way too much time on his or her hands, decided to run the tweets written by the 500 most followed celebrities through a reading comprehension test to determine the 50 Smartest Celebrities on Twitter. The test adds up the number of three-syllable words used in a tweet to calculate the education level required to understand it.
Time reported, the average Twitter user tweets at a 4th grade reading level.
Leonardo DiCaprio took the #1 spot with a 7.5 grade reading level. He tweets a lot about ocean conservation, so this is not surprising. Pattie Mallette, the woman who gave us Justin Bieber, ranked #2. My guess is that the three-syllable word “beliebers” helped her win this spot. Jenni “JWoww” Farley was one of the highest ranking reality TV stars!
