Baby Cree, Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Cory Hardrict’s son, is no longer a baby! The little one turned 1-years-old on Thursday June 28, 2012, and several Twitter fans as well as family members wished him well.

Divorce is rough, but Sheree Fletcher and Andrea Kelly have found a way to move on through a reality show called ‘Hollywood Exes.’ Both recently sat down with media outlets to discuss their lives after being married to celebs, and give insight on their co-parenting techniques.

Andrea Kelly, estranged wife of singer R.Kelly, is one of several former celeb wives on ‘Hollywood Exes.’ Andrea is ecstatic about the series saying, “This is a journey of rediscovery and reinvention. We, [the women in the show], really are a sisterhood. We all know what it’s like to have, and we know what it’s like to be a have-not.”

Although she didn’t ask her former husband how he felt about her starring in a reality series, Andrea did acknowledge R.Kelly as being a part of the greater family circle. “The marriage came to an end but the family is not over. We have children. We co-parent. We’re bonded for life.”

In line with Andrea’s theories about co-parenting, Sheree Fletcher also feels that a positive relationship between her and Will Smith is what makes the arrangement work. “It’s like the marriage didn’t work, so, now we gotta move on and what we need to do now is be the most effective and be the best co-parents we can possibly be. We’re in full fledged plan B,” Fletcher said.

Sheree and Will married in 1992 and welcomed their son Trey into the world the same year. Andrea and R.Kelly were married for 12 years before divorcing in 2009. The former couple have three children together.


Singer and songwriter Alicia Keys has been working feverishly to complete her new project, designed to accompany her 2009 album The Element of Freedom. Although the singer has been involved in many charities that are inspiring by nature, her greatest influence for the new album comes from husband Swizz Beatz and son Egypt.


Carmelo Anthony along with LaLa Vazquez and their son Kiyan,5, strike a pose around Carmelo’s waxed figurine on Tuesday, June 26, 2012. The New York ‘Knicks’ player placed the privilege of having a statue made in his honor at the top of his list of great accomplishments. On his list of hopefuls is an NBA championship.


Justin Gatlin triumphed over fellow runners in the 100m Men’s finals at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Finals this past Sunday. The athlete celebrated with his son Jace after crossing the finish line first.


Siohvaughn Funches-Wade was sternly dealt with at a Cook County courthouse on Tuesday, June 26, 2012. The ex-wife of Dwyane Wade and mother of his two children, Zion,5, and Zaire,10, was told by Associate Judge Helaine Leslie Berger to keep the kids out of her quarrels with Miami Heat Player Dwyane Wade. “Read my lips on this – you tell the kids: ‘I got arrested, your dad got me arrested’ … I take away your visitation,” said Berger. “The children should not be in the middle of this,” the judge added.

Firm orders come after Funches allegedly overstepped her boundaries during a visitation by refusing to allow the children to be picked up by Wade’s sister. Siohvaughn was subsequently arrested and charged with resisting. Dwyane has since petitioned for supervised visits to take place in Florida instead of Chicago, and has asked the courts to transfer the case to Florida where he has sole custody of the boys.

The former couple divorced in 2010, with Wade getting custody of the boys in 2011.

Chris Bosh is happy about his team’s success in the playoffs. He recently shared his excitement with Kelly and Tyler Perry on Live! With Kelly. “It hits me every day,” said Bosh, “It just hit me now. It’s just such a great feeling. It’s the greatest feeling ever. We have been working so hard. I know I worked very hard and my family was behind me the whole time, so that was the best part.”
