Baby number two is on the way for Miami Heat’s Chris Bosh and his wife Adrienne.
Their pregnancy announcement was definitely one of the best and most adorable that has ever been done!!! The couple had their 4-year-old daughter Trinity, and 1-year-old son Jackson take photos that were posted to Instagram announcing they were going to be a big sister again and a big brother.
Usher is being sued by his former nanny, Cecilia Duncan,saying she was overworked and underpaid.
In the lawsuit, Duncan is claiming that she started to work part time with the singer in December 2010 and took care of his sons, ages 4 and 5. She said the job suddenly escalated into 40 hours per week with no raise and no overtime pay.
She expressed these concerns to Usher in 2011 that she felt she was being treated unfairly and he just ignored her. He fired her last September without ever giving her the overtime pay so she’s now suing for wrongful termination, failure to pay wages and more.
Duncan is demanding unspecified damages but sources close to the lawsuit say she’s asking in the six-figure range.
Usher’s camp says that the suit is frivolous and that these allegations are false.
Last week I held my 4th Annual ‘Mommy Makeovers’ in Atlanta along with my foundation, the Egypt Cares Family Foundation [ECFF), Black Opal Cosmetics, AMBI, the Island of Aruba, I For Talent Management and Sister 2 Sister Media.
Hosted at Hair Design by Future Vision salon, ten deserving moms: Helena Fountain, Martha Newton, Sandra Surrey-Davison, Nancy Grimes, Deborah Brown, Antoinette Woods, Tibet Crowder, Renee Jones, Charlene Carter and Faith Ware received complete hair, make-up and wardrobe styling, while munching on treats provided by Gourmet Express. Special guests included the OMG Girlz -- who were joined by Tameka "Tiny" Harris (Zonnique’s mom) and Shamra Rodriguez (Beauty’s mother) – as well as author/entrepreneur Monyetta Shaw.
Sister 2 Sister Magazine publisher/brand ambassador, Jamie Foster Brown, was presented with the "Mompreneur Of The Year" award for her devotion as a mother, the 25 year legacy she's built at the helm of her Sister2Sister Media empire, and her commitment to using her media platforms to uplift communities across the country.
One of the days highlights was when one of the moms, Helena Fountain, won the giveaway: an of an all-expense paid trip to Aruba!!
Our annual Mommy Makeovers event has always been very close to my heart, but now that I am a mom myself, it has a whole new meaning to me! Motherhood is the most challenging yet rewarding job I could ever have in my lifetime. It was such an overwhelming feeling to pamper and celebrate everyday women who have endured so much and are still standing tall through it all.

Singer Monica Brown and her husband, Phoenix Suns Shannon Brown, are expecting!
Over the weekend she posted the above picture before she went on stage in Chattanooga, TN. The picture itself tells us what we’ve all been wondering since March when she seemed to strategically cover her tummy: is she pregnant? She is definitely pregnant. She’s about 5 months along, but that has yet to be confirmed.
This will be the “Love All Over Me” singer’s third child in addition to 5-year-old Romelo and 7-year-old Rocko.
There has been a lot of drama on this season of “American Idol.” Beef between the judges, record low ratings…many have wondered if the show would even survive another season.
Randy Jackson, who has been a judge since the show started 12 years ago, has released a statement confirming that he will be leaving Idol.
Yo! Yo! Yo! To put all of the speculation to the rest, after 12 years of judging on American Idol I have decided it is time to leave after this season. I am very proud of how we forever changed television and the music industry.”
Jackson will be setting his focus on his company, Dream Merchant 21 as well as other business ventures.
