Now, usually, I'll add my .02 cents on any blog entry that I may post. But, right about now, as far as Usher and Tameka are concerned, I just can't do it. Let's just say that old walking negroe spiritual who fooled around (behind her previous husband's back) with her former employer then got knocked up by him before accepting his wedding proposal before her marriage to her previous husband was even finalized has obviously done what she set out to do: exchange vows with her husband of a month or so in front of a host of family and friends in Atlanta. Since the affair was so private....which I don't understand, because any other time those 2 make it their mission to stay up in our faces as much as the can, there aren't any pictures showing Man-Man waddling down the aisle in a white tarp that she'd probably refer to as a wedding dress. Oh, and Usher's mother wasn't at this one either. But, hey, can you blame her?! I just hope Usher and his Uncle Tameka are both happy and will make a vow to sitting their asses the hell down from here on out.

Wait a minute! Hold up! Didn't I say I wasn't gonna add my .02 cents? Oh well....Read on, there's more...not from me though!....

According to, after a quiet civil ceremony, Usher and Tameka Foster at last pulled off their dream wedding in Atlanta on Saturday. "I'm thrilled that this is finally happening," said one guest, who watched the couple exchange vows in front of about 200 people at the luxurious Chateau Elan Winery & Resort, a 16th-century-style French chateau set on 3,500 acres of rolling hills outside Atlanta. "It was a long time coming, and I can't think of any two people who deserve happiness more than they do." Among the guests were Oprah Winfrey's pal Gayle King and music manager Benny Medina.

Usher's mother, Jonetta Patton, who has reportedly clashed with Foster, did not attend.

The guests enjoyed a sit-down dinner inside the resort's ballroom. Dessert was a five-tiered white chocolate-covered wedding cake with handmade flowers by Napa's Perfect Endings, who recently did Eva Longoria's wedding cake.

"They are in love and they wanted this to be perfect," says another guest of the event, planned by wedding planner Diann Valentine. "They had their reasons for not getting married (before), and that's their own business. Now they could get things done the way they wanted to, their family and friends can be here now."

The couple originally planned to tie the knot at a lavish no-expenses-spared event at music mogul L.A. Reid's Sagaponack, N.Y., home, but the ceremony was postponed at the last minute.

The civil ceremony between Usher (full name: Usher Raymond), 28, and Foster, 37, was reportedly held in his lawyer's office Aug. 3. The couple are expecting their first child this fall. This is Usher's first marriage, Foster's second.

Speaking of babies, Usher recently told talks show host Ellen DeGeneres that he's ready to pass on his name--to a boy. In his first interview since marrying Tameka Foster on Aug. 3, the R&B star, making a surprise appearance on Tuesday's post-Labor Day The Ellen DeGeneres Show, tells the host, "I don't know," when she asks, "Is it a boy or a girl?" But, he adds, "I want it to be a boy" – which prompts DeGeneres to tell him, "Now, you're going to have a girl, and she's going to see this tape and say, 'Daddy, why don't you love me?' You better save some for some therapy. But you're going to love her if it's a little girl." Asked if he wants a boy so they can play sports together, Usher says, "I think every man wants a son."

As for names, "If it's a boy, I'm going to name him Usher," says the musician, whose full name is Usher Raymond. "I'm hoping to name him that. I've been playing with a few names. I'm the fourth. Usher Raymond IV. I just want to pass the name on. Maybe I'll change the middle name."

And, if it's a girl? "What about Usherette?" asks DeGeneres. "Last time you were here, you were single," DeGeneres also tells him. "You said you wanted a lady that you could take from the Waffle House to the White House. You found her."

"I did. I found someone that I'm very, very happy to call my wife," he tells her. "Tameka Raymond. She's beautiful."

I am so ashamed--why would you EVER open your mouth like that about another black woman? I wonder if they don't protect us because we don't protect each other. That's disgusting. I used to read this blog, but I won't any longer. We've got to stop the hatred of ourselves. Sorry, but I can't support anymore.

Compared to Chilli this heffa looks like a Ape carrying his monkey son Usher by the neck. SMH...How does Tarzan diss Mrs.Jane to tongekissing his Ape mother? The beast must have something on Usher. Ain't no way a vain bitch like Usher would marry an Ape this ugly. What made it worse is he diss his own flesh and blood to satisfy this Ape's appetite. And he wants Jonetta to support him after giving her the Pink Slip on Mother's Day of all days?!?!

KARMA IS A BITCH! He will get a taste of it when his album drops.

There's absolutely no reason for you to feel ashame. Absolutely none whatsoever. This is a blog where I and anyone else, even you, has the right to say exactly how they feel. If I sat here and agreed with everything a poster says when I know deep down inside that I'm feeling something different, it would defeat the purpose of creating a blog in the first place.
So if you're going to stop supporting this blog on the strength of what I said about Tameka...then that's out of my hands.

I truly hate to see you go, but I'm not going to retract whatever it is that I said that offended you in the first place in order to keep you here. I don't have the power to. Obviously Tameka does. I'm not in the business of faking the font.

Usher is wrong for firing his mother and then being with someone that isn't as attractive as Chili. First you don't wan tto get married and have kids, now all of a sudden you do. Whats up with that? You had a ride or die check that was very beautiful, I might add and a mother who carried you for nine months and was always there for you. The reason for the first wedding being "Postpobed" was probably because he divorce didn't go through. Don't you see she is just a gold-digger that is set out for your money. I hope you have a pre-nup. Are you sure this baby is yours, b/c she surely did get pregnant quick. And you didn't give Chili any kids. You better take Dana as, Madea calls it. Cuz she don't lie!! Oh yea, get ready to do the "Stepdaddy"!! Because the kids will be around telling you you ain't they daddy!!!!

P.S. You reap what you sow. Esp. when you treated your mama and the one who truely loved you wrong!!!
