LaNiyah Bailey is an adorably cute child with a bright future ahead of her. She has accomplished more in a year’s time than many have done in a lifetime to bring about change in not only her own life but the lives of others that have endured the same type of torturous bullying that she has.
She was bullied for no other reason than her appearance. She was teased by not only children but adults as well. Can you imagine the things that went on in her mind? Can you imagine what a child younger than 6 years old felt to have been crying uncontrollably because she was being teased nonstop because of her weight? Her medically induced weight problem, something she had no control over, constant judgment and harsh words could have led to a tragedy.
She rose above her circumstances and is now impacting the world with her brave stance against bullying and fight against childhood obesity.
Hit the cut to read her story. Props to GumBumper.

Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond has put the gloves on again, and is back in the ring for round 2. Tameka has filed a motion for a new trial in their custody battle. She wants to know where was the evidence, if she was such a bad irresponsible mom. Usher, who has snatched their two boys back since he was given primary custody, is out on tour with Miguel. So who’s watching the kids?
Tameka vowed to appeal the decision by filing a motion for a new trial on grounds the judge was biased in Usher’s favor.
Tameka claims the judge has a strong tie to Usher’s lawyer, claiming the attorney was personally responsible for nearly half of the contributions to the judge’s re-election campaign in 2008. What’s more, Tameka alleges Usher’s lawyer served on the judge’s re-election campaign committee.
Tameka also insists NO evidence was presented showing she couldn’t take care of her kids.
Tameka also claims there was clear evidence of Usher’s “past, current, and future inability” to care for the kids.
MJJ says Tameka wants that money, and she ain’t going down without a fight. Bringing up the stalker shit and his alleged drug use didn’t move the judge, but since Usher went on tour the same day he was supposed to start playing full time daddy, might be the ammunition she needed along with all her other accusations.
Should the kids spend their time with Usher’s team of nannies or their Momma while he’s on tour tickling his fancy with you know who?
This past Wednesday, ILHHB had the privilege to be able to come through as media at the TAGS Boutique located at 4500 West Village Place, Set 2003, Smyrna, GA, for a live, audience full, filming of Kandi Koated Night. If you haven’t watched Kandi Koated Nights before, most episodes are all SEX driven, or relationship scenarios and to spice it up, they’ll get a guest celebrity that many may know to dish out their information on the topic.
With that said, Wednesday’s nights topic was “Side Chick” and for a celebrity guest, who is better to discuss their experience as a side chick none other than Joseline Hernandez from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. And to spice things up, they even brought Stevie J through as well, who made sure to let people know he was all about that bread. Hit the link below for more coverage of the event.
