Tameka Raymond, Phaedra Parks and LaTavia Roberson cover the March issue of UPSCALE Magazine where they discuss making reality tv.  See their pretty cover inside and get an update on the homicide trial for Tameka's deceased son Kile Glover...

Stars from three Atlanta-based reality tv shows, Tameka Raymond ("Atlanta Exes"), LaTavia Roberson ("R&B Divas: Atlanta") and Phaedra Parks ("RHOA") posed for the March 2014 cover of UPSCALE (shot in Atlanta by Drexina Nelson) where they provided a "Reality Check" about living their lives in front of millions.  Check out a few interview quotes from each of the reality tv divas....

Tameka on why she's doing reality TV now:

“I’d previously received several offers to do a variety of different shows, but I’m all about timing.No matter what people have reasoned were the best things for me, I know myself better than anybody. I know my family and I know my needs. The timing wasn’t right. Now, it’s better. People have begun to focus more on me as an individual, a mother, a business woman and I think that this new exercise of introduction to the world is meant to happen right now."

Tameka on never being scared:

“Let’s be clear, there’s not a lot that I’m actually “scared” of—that’s the Oakland in me.

Phaedra on the realities of reality television:

“We’re not members of SAG so it’s not like we’re getting benefits from replays. We’re talents that aren’t being considered as actors, so their getting talent for a nominal fee. They’ve found a way to make money and cut the cost on studios and productions so they’re making the largest profit with the least amount of residual.”

LaTavia Roberson on how she'll be perceived:

“There is nothing I can say about how people are going to perceive me. I have to stay true to myself. I know who I am, I love who I am. As far as the reality [television] part goes, I’m being myself; I really can’t change that… I’m not going to try to change that.”


Both Tameka and LaTavia will make their reailty tv debuts this fall while Phaedra will likely be in court with her husband Apollo. No shade.

Tameka and her ex-husband Usher Raymond (shown above at LAX airport yesterday) received justice yesterday as Jeffrey Hubbard, jet skier who was found responsible for their 11-year-old Kile Glover's fatal accident, was convicted of homicide by vessel.

Jeffrey, a family friend, who was part of their group outing on Lake Lanier, was also found guilty of serious injury by vessel, reckless operation, unlawful operation of personal watercraft and boat traffic violation.

Following Kile's death, Tameka launched "Kile's World Foundation" to increase water safety- thru implementing laws, policies & education.



When TMZ caught up with Usher and asked him about the trial, he said "The loss of a child is enough....."
