In an exclusive sit-down with Diane Sawyer, the celebutante talks for the first time about the impending birth of her child with Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden.

ABC says in the interview, which airs on "Good Morning America" Thursday and Friday and on "20/20" Friday night, Richie "speaks candidly about why this particular constellation of young female stars -- Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears, among others -- have behaved badly so publicly." She should know!

As for her upcoming stint in the slammer, Richie told Sawyer, "I have a responsibility and it's something that I did wrong, and if I could personally apologize to every single person that has lost a loved one from drunk driving I would," she said of her recent guilty plea. "And unfortunately I can't, but this is my way of paying my dues and taking responsibility and being an adult."

The Tyra Banks Show invaded New York's Times Square...and you know she had to do impromptu makeovers!!
"I'm thrilled to be moving to New York," said Banks, a native Los Angeleno whose first apartment once she became a model was in NYC. "After spending some time in the city this past spring, I knew the energy and rhythm of the city would be great for the show. I feel connected and completely at home."

"Moving the talk show to New York provides a great opportunity to meet all kinds of people and keep sharing the message of empowerment with everyone everywhere," Banks said. "The excitement of New York City will translate to the show each and every day as we continue to face compelling issues…head on." Source: E! Online
I hate to admit, but she is my guilty pleasure...her talk show can be extra cheesy but sometimes I am feeling a little cheese in my TV diet...I am mad she's still rocking that drab blonde looks so blah on least the lacefront glue held tight!

Wyclef Jean puts his two cents in on the reunion-gone-wrong of The Fugees...telling Scratch Magazine that Lauryn Hill has been the major roadblock and mainly because she won't stay in her lane!
What’s going on with the Fugees reunion, or lack there of?
WYCLEF: I’m officially Paul McCartney from the Beatles now. If the Fugees wanna come back, and Lauryn wanna come back…you can’t break the format. Don’t come back and be like, “I wanna produce a beat.” That’s like me saying I wanna sing an R&B vocal. When we was working on the album, I was like, [to Lauryn], “You need to do this like this.” [And] she says, “How do you know what’s relevant? I haven’t heard anything from you in the past like three, four years?” The minute she said that I was like, I gotta go back to working.

So what’s ultimately holding you guys back?

Lauryn is straight up the problem, bro. She wants to be a producer. Don’t come telling us how to chop up beats so you can get credit for it.
Wyclef goes on to breakdown what tensions has plagued the reunion and his new album, Carnival II: Memoirs of an Immigrant, which features appearances from Lil Wayne, Akon, Sizzla, Paul Simon, Mary J. Blige, Chamillionaire, Minister Louis Farrakhan and more.

Us Weekly caught up with Ushmeka and says that the wedding is still on!

The singer exclusively tells that it's only a matter of time before they walk down the aisle. "As of right now we don't have a date but we will let you know when we do."

"Everbody's fine. Tameka and the baby are fine," Usher himself told on July 31, after the couple arrived via private plane in NYC.

Foster chimed: "We're good. We're all doing great now."

Now let me ask is that Tameka released a not-so-revealing statement through People and didn't say the labor scare was the reason? I mean if it was just that, there would be no reason to not say so...she clearly loves the spotlight and that sure would have gotten her some sympathy...I call bullshit! How is it that they just arrived in NYC today and she went to the hospital on Friday in NYC? If Usher called the wedding off on Friday, why were they setting things up on Saturday and didn't start calling guests until the day of? Sounds like someone needed to get their stories straight! All of this is utter and complete foolery!

Star Jones has finally admitted to what we all knew, that she had gastric-bypass surgery to lose weight! We just wanted her to own up to it! You'd have to be smoking the ooh-wee to believe Star dropped 2 Nicole Ritchies worth of weight in such a short period [160 in 3 years to be exact]...The reason? "I was scared..." she writes in Glamour Magazine, but after packing on 75 pounds from lonely eating she went from full-figured to morbidly obese [307 at her heaviest] but decided to have the surgery after a friend became concerned with her health...
"Everything about me was already so public (mostly my own doing talk about dumb!), so of course everyone wanted to know what I had done," she writes. "I was also terrified someone would have a tragic result after emulating me without making an informed decision with her doctor."

"But the complete truth is, I was scared of what people might think of me," she continues. "I was afraid to be vulnerable, and ashamed at not being able to get myself under control without this procedure." [READ MORE]
You can catch her full story in the September issue of Glamour Magazine that hits stands Aug. 7th.

"No one knows why we canceled the wedding, but I can tell you that all of the reasons that everyone is speculating and writing about are completely untrue," Foster told PEOPLE Monday, but she declined to reveal more about why the nuptials were called off.

"We had a scare," she says. "But, I am fine and the baby is fine.” The couple announced in June that they were expecting their first child together, due this fall.

Booooo....Tameka Foster-wish-it-were-Raymond you need to GET OFF THE BOO BOO!!
