Tameka Raymond and Sheree Whitfield having been hanging tough this last week. Here are some pics of the two women at the Southwest Atlanta Celebrity Cook-Off and at ATL Live On the Park. Before you know it, Tameka Raymond will be a regular guest star on Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Towanda and Trina Braxton were invited as guest judges to the finale of DRAGNIQUE 2, a drag queen super star competition, at Jungle in Atlanta. I don’t know which Braxton sister is my favorite, yet. I can like Tamar sometimes, but I think next to Toni, Trina is my probably favorite Braxton sister. Check out a few pics of Trina with her sister Towanda, picking Atlanta’s next Drag Queen Superstar. Werk!
MrsGrapevine.com caught up with Fonzworth Bentely to discuss his latest music adventure. During the process I learned a lot of new things about the mufti-talented artist. One of the most unique things about Derek Watkins, “Mr. Bentley”, is that he speaks in metaphors; nothing is simple and everything can be broken down into an analogy. He’s very quick witted, and WILL turn the interview on you if you miss a step. We talked about everything from marriage, to having a cancerous tumor the size of a volleyball, his faith in Christ, his first job, and his love of music.
Fonzworth Bentely, named after the character Bootney Farnsworth from the old school movie, Let’s Do It Again, starring Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby, just dropped his mixtape C.O.U.L.O.R.S (Cool Outrageous Lovers Of Uniquely Raw Style). When asked if he finds it hard transitioning as a solo music artist, he replies, “Not really!”
What people may not know is that Mr. Bentley started off in music, playing the violin since the age of two via the Suzuki method, and singing in a local boy’s choir in Atlanta. Not to mention working as Diddy’s assistant and hanging around the likes of Kanye West and Andre 3000 has only helped him to understand the music industry inside out. Fonzworth Bentley has spent the last seven years writing and working on his sound. Many hip-hop blogs were surprisingly impressed by the quality of his skills, “They were probably looking for something they could talk about or laugh about,” he says, but instead they were charmed.
Here are a few pics of Fonzworth Bentley performing live at ATL Live On the Park.

Last year rumors hit the internet that Fonzworth Bentley was engaged and getting married to actress, Fuane Chambers (Watkins), most known for her role as Dorothy Baker in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (Faune is pictured below with her husband at ATL Live On the Park).
