THAT WAS QUICK: USHER FILING FOR DIVORCE!

THE REASON BEHIND THE SPLIT HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED!

Usher’s marriage is falling apart according to Hollywood sources. He has filed for divorce from Tameka Foster Raymond after less than two years of marriage. The court record did not give details. They have two sons under the age of 2, and Tameka has three children from a previous marriage.

From TMZ:

As of now, the cause of separation has not yet been made public but, given the impressive amount of interest this is generating, it is believed Usher will be making a statement as regards it any hour now. Presumably, sources speculate, the divorce proceedings will be hushed, since both the singer and his wife are believed not to want to play the separation out in the media.

MURANO IS OUT OF THERE AT TEXAS A&M!

SHE WAS GIVEN ONE OF THE WORST REVIEWS EVER AS LEADER OF THE SCHOOL!

Texas A&M University System regents are meeting following the abrupt resignation of embattled A&M president Elsa Murano.

Murano was not in attendance Monday when the meeting began on the A&M campus. She announced her resignation Sunday, just 17 months after she became the first Hispanic and first female president in the school’s 132-year history.

The board of regents were expected to discuss Murano’s resignation in the afternoon.

A&M system Chancellor Mike McKinney gave Murano a scathing performance review of her first full year on the job, giving her the lowest possible marks for decisiveness and not being a team player.

More than 30 faculty and student members gathered outside near the meeting in support of Murano, who said she hopes to return to the faculty.

ABE SAYS HE’S OUT OF HERE ON AUGUST 31!

THIS IS A RELEASE FROM DR. SAAVEDRA!

“As everyone knows, we have just completed one of the most successful academic years for HISD. The work that you and your staffs have done this year has been extraordinary. I look forward to the official state accountability ratings that we should receive by August 1 and an opportunity to celebrate with all of you. When I announced in early February my intention to retire within the next year, I purposely did not identify my actual exit date. I wanted the board to have an opportunity to start the process of a superintendent search and have a successor ready to continue the work. The superintendent search is moving in earnest and the board expects to have a short list of candidates to interview by some time in July. I am sure they will be ready to make their selection soon after. Based on this projected timeline, I have informed the board that August 31, 2009 would be an appropriate exit date for me. I look forward to continuing our work together during the next two months and an opportunity to celebrate our successes on behalf of the children of Houston. Thank you.”
