Tameka Foster: The Interview

by at . Comments

Tameka Foster is hated on.

We're talking about someone that almost makes Simon Monjack seem appealing to most our readers.

Foster, Tameka

It's hard to pinpoint the exact reason, but fans of Usher believe he's making a grave mistake by marrying this supposed home wrecker. With that in mind, Essence magazine sat down with Tameka recently.

Essence.com: Do you and Usher spend a lot of time together?
Tameka Foster: Usher and I are friends. We are road dogs. We hang out like friends. We shop, laugh, work out, get mad in the middle of the day about what we want to eat, debate about what's fattening in a smoothie and just do regular things.

Essence.com: How does Usher get along with your three sons?
Foster: Usher loves my children. My ex-husband and I have joint custody. It's a wonderful arrangement that allows me time to do things with Usher one-on-one and to spend time with the kids. I'm not looking for a father for my kids because they have one. They just happen to be lucky enough to have two strong men in their lives.

The Hollywood Gossip note: Critics treat Tameka worse than other famous fiancees, such as Alexis Phifer, because they believe she is looking for a new, rich father for her kids.

Essence.com: You've been labeled a "poor mom" because, supposedly, you're never with the kids. Your reaction?
Foster: Do you think Usher would really be engaged to a woman who would leave her kids? My children are with us much more than people think. They've gone to the Bahamas with us and attended play-off games. I purposely keep my children out of view. I don't want them scrutinized and talked about because that would be a problem. Everyone wants to know, "Where are her kids?" Out of these pictures, that's where.

The Hollywood Gossip note: It's a course of action Britney Spears tried to use with Jayden James, too.

Essence.com: Shifting gears a bit, is it true that Usher's mom fired you as his stylist and you in turn convinced Usher to fire her as his manager?
Foster: I never worked for Usher's mom; I worked for Usher. Now, I don't know if she persuaded him to feel certain ways about me, but she never fired me.

Essence.com: So does that mean you and future mother-in-law have beef?
Foster: No, we do not. Any mother with a son as successful as Usher is going to have raised eyebrows about any woman who comes around. I'd be the same way about any one of my sons. His mother and I have a great rapport. There are no hard feelings and I had nothing to do with his decision to no longer have his mother manage him.

So there you have it, people. Are you still against Tameka? Might she get a bad rap? Or, like Blake Fielder-Civil, is it just normal for those marrying celebrities to face a bit of scrutiny?


Dnt no how long these messages been up but u tell u people need to get they life together before judgment day I love usher I been watching him since his first song came out I always looked up to him I don't care who he dates if u a true fan an not a heartless person u go stand by anybody to the end no matter what choice they make people need support back them up so what if she ugly like everybody say it was something he loved about her i thought she was a beautiful black women taking care of business she got usher plus his first borns now if he would have gotten a white women ya'll would have been pissed off take care of ur household an worry about getting to those gates of heaven if I have one wish if would b to pop a bottle in the club with usher an his mom for making a star that gave me something to listen to all my life love u usher


i love you but you was crazy for married dat bitch now she done marry ya azz now thats more money for her and ya kids and her other da kids.now she wants a divorce.


Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...However, I would have loved for Usher's wife to have been Rozonda "Chili" Thomas. They were picture perfect, but it wasn't meant to be. Remember everyone there is a reason for every thing. God has His own purpose in our lives. I don't really care for Usher anymore but it's he life to live-I have enough to deal with in my own life. Tameka Foster stop being STUPID liposuction shows your ignorancy. Your best bet now is to get out of the spot light and concentrate on your children and stop worring about looking good-usher married you, you're not going to make yourself beautiful it's what's on the inside that counts.


I think that she is ugly and looks like a trans....and not because she is dark because I am a dark sister...the fat is that she is and Usher's career will suffer from this very poor move!!!!


It's not that people are being haters. Not only is she not pretty but her attitude sucks. If he had some sense she would realize what she have and not run he ass off being a control freak!


Hahaha yall haters makin Tameka famous lol like Kat Williams said, you should be happy u have haters, n if u don't u should be out dere trying to make some. Tameka has something alota of yall haters don't, strength. Any body would have broken down at all these criticism but she didnt. Infact while yall hatin on her she's busy livin her life with her fine ass hubby by her side lol yall jealous cos she has usher wrap around her lil finger. Yall wish yall was in her place. Life is short live ur life n let them live theirs no matter wat happens.


Everybody focus on Usher and Tameka they doing them. Tameka is a stylists it's in her blood thats never going away.


I have a question...does anybody know if Tameka has personal assistants or stylists who shop for her and dress her, now that she is married to Usher?


Haters get over it, clean up your own back yards. That is his wife and the mother of his child and she deserves the best. Worry about your own damn business. By the way I am a lightskin sister and I believe Tameka was an excellent choice for him and she keeps it real. So what she has a past, we all do whether we admit it or not.
