Foster speaks up
Tameka Foster finally is talking about the swirl of rumors surrounding her canceled wedding to Usher last Saturday.
“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,” Miss Foster told People magazine Monday, though she declined to reveal more about why the nuptials were called off.
Sources told People that family matters were the issue (Usher’s mother and former manager, Jonetta Patton, was against the wedding) and that disagreements between the would-be-bride and groom over wedding details also caused the breech.
Miss Foster, 37, who is in Atlanta (as is Usher, 28) does address one rumor that spread on local radio stations and blogs — that following Saturday’s canceled ceremony, she checked into a local hospital and went into pre-term labor.
“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.
Confederacy of dunces
In an interview with OK! magazine, Miss Richie — who finally confirmed yesterday that she’s four months pregnant by rocker Joel Madden — revealed that she took the powerful painkiller Vicodin, which was not prescribed for her, because of PMS. “I have really bad menstrual cramps,” she said.
Guess she’s never heard of Midol.
Miss Hilton, for her part, continues to show she never went to college. She recently bragged to Us Weekly, “I ordered a Hummer Hybrid”— to which a spokesperson for Hummer responded, “Such a car doesn’t exist.”
Meanwhile, Miss Hilton’s grandfather, Barron Hilton, told the newspaper through a family rep that “House of Hilton” author Jerry Oppenheimerwas wrong in saying he was upset with Paris — “I love her very much and am proud of what she has accomplished,” Barron Hilton was quoted as saying.
Mr. Oppenheimer recently said that the family patriarch was so “extremely embarrassed” by his granddaughter’s transgressions that he was funneling her inheritance to charity, according to news.com.au.
