I know you all have seen the MTV Cribs episode where they dedicated the entire half-hour to Mariah Carey just so she could show off her candy walls, 2 kitchens, gigantic jacuzzi and that bomb-ass boutique she calls a closet. Did you think that anyone else could do it bigger and better than MiMi?! Well, if you didn't, think again because Kimora, at least in my book, has Mariah beat by a landslide. The model-turned-fashion mogul recently invited In Style magazine into her home where she proudly and justly, I might add, showed off her enormous clothing quarters. Kimora's closet--which holds about 500 pairs of jeans, an endless amount of designer shoes bought 10 at a time and a varied collection of custom-made Birkin bags that'll make you want to slap the earth, wind and fire outta yo mama--could very well be bigger than your average apartment. And she basks in her fabulous fabulosity all while sipping pink champagne from her minibar and watching her flat screen television with her closet! It must be nice! Peep the pics below if you don't believe me.



How cute is she...stll? Chilli recently made a guest appearance on Ryan Cameron's Morning Show on V103 in Atlanta. During the break, the 'sexy' component of TLC broke out into the latest dance craze: the Soulja Boy. Baby hair and all, the girl still got it. 36 years old and doesn't look a day over 25. Man, if Lisa was still here. Could you imagine having all 3 members up in that radio station clowing the hell out? I was watching their 'Waterfalls' video yesterday and damn near cried. If Lisa was still here....

(PART 1)




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."
