A serious family emergency caused Usher to cancel his performance at a pre-Grammy Awards party last night - and one celebrity gossip report claims it's because his wife, Tameka Foster, is in trouble after having cosmetic surgery.

Music bigwig Clive Davis announced at his Pre-Grammy Bash that Usher's last minute cancellation was due to a "serious injury in the family."

Foster, Tameka

According to Access Hollywood, Tameka had "experienced complications from plastic surgery" in Brazil. What work she was having done is unclear.

Access claims a neurosurgeon is on the way to South America to assist Mrs. Usher - who just gave birth to their second child back in December.

An earlier report said that Tameka Foster was dead after botched plastic surgery, but Usher's rep quickly denied that. It is believed, however, that Foster did indeed suffer serious complications from a cosmetic procedure.

Above all else, we hope Tameka Foster is alright.

But we also look forward to seeing if she is worthy of joining our celebrity plastic sugery hall of fame! It's an elite group, but we think she can do it!

It's all but confirmed that DeShawn Snow is not returning for the second season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. A source at Bravo says “the public wasn’t interested in her life.”

Ouch.

Foster, Tameka

While Kim Zolciak, Lisa Wu Hartell and Nene Leakes will all come back for this high-rated reality show, we're mostly excited about the rumored fourth housewife that will replace Snow.

Reportedly, Tameka Foster - Usher's fairly new, controversial wife - has been approached by the network. Insiders say they’re “in the last bit of talks” to make this cast addition official.


Tameka Foster, and her unusual fashion, might be headed to reality television.

Another celebrity baby has been ushered into the world.

Usher and Tameka Foster are the proud new parents of a boy named Naviyd Ely Raymond, born yesterday, as a source confirms that the singer was by his wife's side during the delivery.

The child joins older brother Usher Raymond V, who turned 1 on November 26.

Last month, Usher told Access Hollywood that his impending baby was "one of the best Christmas gifts there is to have."

Looks like the holidays have arrived early for the crooner and his wife!

Another baby is on the way for one of Hollywood's most controversial couples.

Tameka Foster and Usher welcomed their first child, Usher Raymond V, in November 2007.

Since then, the singer hasn't been shy about how much he loves being a father.

"I'm so proud to be a father by the time I'm 30," Usher said last month. "I'd hate to be 80 years old and not be able to run with my kids. I need to still be able to do flips when they're in high school!"

Usher is correct: he and Tameka Foster are expecting a second child!

Usher fans may be Tameka Foster haters, but perhaps they'll change their minds when they read how well Foster is taking care of the couple's baby.

"He's like hyper baby — he's crawling so fast!" Foster said of her seven-month old. "He stands up, and he's walking around the table... it's amazing to watch him."

Alex Rodriguez, Cynthia Rodriguez and Kids

Tameka Foster loves her son. But Usher fans don't love Tameka Foster.

Foster also told Us Weekly that motherhood "wonderful" and "every day is a new challenge with him."

As for future Ushers?

"I'd love to have more, we just gotta make the time," Foster said.

While Usher fans continue to hate on Tameka Foster, this couple continues to impress us with its normalcy.

In a recent interview with Page Six, the music icon said he'd never consider selling off photos of his new baby, a lesson other celebrities should heed (are you listening, Jennifer Lopez?)

Tameka Foster and Usher

"In no way would I ever pimp out my child for money. I am livid that people talk about my child," Usher said.

Usher also defended his wife against the rumors that she doesn't get along with, well, everyone.

"I stand by her as a man loving my wife and being there for my child... Opinions are like assholes. Everybody's got one. What I will say is, this is my wife and I would hope that [people] would respect my wife and my marriage and who I have chosen to spend my life with."

It's been many months since Tameka Foster and Usher really made any entertainment news headlines. The couple appears to have gotten married and settled into a calm, normal routine.

So, here's our question to Usher fans/Foster haters: do you still possess the sort of venom for Tameka that Britney Spears has for underwear, or Lauren Conrad unleashes toward Heidi Montag?

Earlier this week, Foster and Usher enjoyed a meal together, critics be damned...

Tameka, do you want the Everybody Hates You Combo? Or the Leave Usher Alone Pu Pu Platter?

Ah, Tameka Foster.

One of the celebrity gossip world's most hated can always be counted on to stoke the passions of the haters just when things start to cool down.

Foster was "domineering" and displayed her trademark "Tameka wrath" during a video shoot for Usher's song, "Love in the Club," the New York Post says.

Tameka was visibly upset when she found out stunning singer / songwriter Keri Hilson was personally picked by Usher to play his love interest in the video.

"It was supposed to be a sexy video shoot," a Post spy said.

"Tameka was there the entire time guarding like a watchdog. It was ridiculous. She knows Keri and knows she's no video ho or Karrine Steffans."

Nicknamed "Superhead," Karrine Steffans wrote the book, "Video Vixen," about her alleged flings with Usher, Bobby Brown and other artists.

"Tameka Foster is very insecure," the source said. "Even in rehearsals she was weird and not happy that Keri is so gorgeous. Tameka threw a lot of attitude. The day of the shoot, Tameka dressed Keri very badly - like an extra. Tameka wouldn't let Keri have her hairdresser there - she had to use the hairdresser who was doing the extras."

Tameka Foster also has taken a serious dislike to Usher's longtime choreographer, Jamaica, and has apparently gone so far as to banish Jamaica from the set.

Then, when Usher and Tameka Foster were spotted at the Beverly Hills Hotel last week, "They barely said one word to each other."

The two have a choppy past to say the least. After they got engaged, Usher fired his mom, Jonetta Patton, as his manager and also axed his publicists. "Tameka was the one and only one to call the shots," spies said.

They were supposed to wed last summer at L.A. Reid's Hamptons estate - but the wedding was called off at the last minute. They wed a week later in Atlanta, and Foster gave birth to their son, Usher Raymond V, in November.

Usher's album, which may be called Regret, was supposed to come out last year but was delayed due to his wedding and baby. It is expected by June.

Usher's manager, Benny Medina, said via e-mail
:

"Keri could not have been happier with Tameka's choices in styling, hair and makeup ... Jamaica was flown out and arrived a day late to do Keri's choreography, and was on-set at all times. The shoot itself went brilliantly."

As 2007 draws to a close, it's time to reflect and pay tribute to the stars who made this a year to remember. On that note, The Hollywood Gossip is announcing its 10 finalists for its first annual Celebrity of the Year award.

They've given us their best, their worst and, in a more than a few cases, their naked pictures. Now it is time for us to give a little something back with this special feature, because without these celebrities, we are nothing.

We previously profiled the young sex kitten Hayden Panettiere at #9. Now, without further delay, we present Celebrity of the Year finalist #8 … Tameka Foster!

Before 2007, even hardcore Usher fans had never heard of Foster. Within months, however, this 42-year old had grown into the bane of their R&B loving existence.

Who was this mother of three to be dating their man? His washboard stomach and sultry voice deserved someone closer to Beyonce, a companion more like Alicia Keys. To this day, Tameka Foster invokes a scorn within Usher's camp that not even the most ardent Simon Monjack haters can summon.

While other girlfriends and new wives, such as Alexis Phifer or Renee Sloan, were being welcomed by fans of their loved celebrities, Tameka battled hate mail all year long. It didn't end with the birth of Usher's first child, either, as Usher Raymond V entered the world in November.

As we enter 2008, the buzz surrounding Foster and Usher should die down. They're married. They're raising a child. There's little else to say on the matter.

Plus, Blake Fielder-Civil and Amy Winehouse are pretty much stealing all the controversial newlywed headlines at this point.

Tameka Foster isn't satisfied to sit back and raise her baby with Usher quietly.

Instead, everyone's least favorite wife of a celebrity is speaking up again in Essence magazine, responding to her negative public perception:

We [black women] don't like ourselves. If I were Hispanic, Usher would have the sexiest wife alive. If I were mixed, he'd have the sexiest wife alive. But he has a black girl, and it's like, ‘She's horrible and she's ugly!'

OK, maybe I don't fit the cookie-cutter standard - 25 and a size two - but this is who he loves. There are women getting raped in Darfur, young girls being turned out every single day right here in Atlanta. We have bigger issues to worry about than two people in love with each other.

This may be true, but at the end of the day, the United States doesn't care about Darfur because its economic and political interests aren't threatened.

Usher is a national treasure, however.
