Williams interviews celebrity stylist Tameka Foster on The Wendy Williams experiment on her career and what she thinks of Usher’s relationship with his mother.

She’s his manager so when their talking about management, business, numbers, times, dates. It’s like that but that’s mommy. He kisses on her, that’s mommy.

I had every reason to believe the marriage was intact.

My wife is not 40 years old. I love her to death and I’m a black, strong man in America standing up for my people — as a man to my wife, to my son, to my family. I’m making a stand that a lot of us should make. I coulda been like any other man who has a child and live with that woman and continue to just play the game. I’m trying to do it the right way. This is the way you’re supposed to do it! Pay attention, fellas.
