If you love redneck humor spewing out of the mouth of a precocious 7-year-old girl, you're in luck. TLC Network has ordered more episodes of the breakout hit cable reality series 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' starring kiddie beauty pageant star Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson.

The network ordered Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday episodes of the hit show that trumped Bill Clinton's DNC speech in the TV ratings.

Georgia native Honey Boo Boo Chile is famous for her redneck catchphrases such as "A dolla makes me holla" and "You better redneckognize!" But critics take issue with the show for making a mockery of the trailer park lifestyle.

    Falcons running back Michael Turner celebrated his touchdown in the team's win over the Denver Broncos by tossing back a few too many drinks Monday night.

    Turner, 30, of Suwanee, GA was stopped by a DUI Task Force officer for driving his black Audi R8 97 mph in a 65 mph zone on I-85 northbound just east of Atlanta. He was booked into the Gwinnett County jail just after 5 a.m. Tuesday morning, according to jail records reviewed by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    “The officer could smell an odor of alcoholic beverage coming from the driver and proceeded to conduct a DUI investigation,” Gwinnett police Cpl. Edwin Ritter said in an e-mail to the AJC. “During the course of the investigation, the officer developed probable cause to charge Mr. Turner with DUI and speeding.”

    Keyshia Cole's stalker is expected to plead guilty of stalking and other charges in a hearing on Thursday, The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

    Webster is charged with aggravated stalking and other offenses for a recent incident involving Cole, according to a news release by the Fulton County District Attorney’s office. He faces up to 13 years in prison if he pleads guilty as expected.

    In 2009, Cole considered putting her custom built 5 bedroom, 5 bath house on the market in 2009 after Webster followed her home one night. He was eventually caught with a large cache of weapons and convicted on a lesser charge.

    “I own a gun – a Glock… and I called the police and told them I’d kill him and that I prefer not to,” said Keyshia in a cover story for the June 2009 issue of KING magazine.

    An arrest warrant has been issued for a man who took his baby mama and their infant along on an armed robbery spree in Buckhead, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    A surveillance camera captured a man and a woman sitting with a baby stroller and smoking cigarettes at a table in front of Publix, across from Phipps Plaza, over the weekend.

    The video shows the woman occasionally reaching over to rock the stroller to soothe the baby. The couple is believed to have committed an armed robbery shortly afterwards.

    According to a police report obtained by the AJC, an elderly man was walking home from Publix when he saw a woman with a stroller and a crying baby. He was approached from behind by a man who put a gun to the back of his head and demanded his wallet and the PIN number to his ATM card.

    This post was edited to correct the fact that Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane did not respond to Tameka's Motion for Recusal. It was attorney John Mayoue who filed a response. Judge Lane legally cannot respond to the motion for recusal.

    Usher's attorney John Mayoue came out swinging in a legal response to Tameka Foster-Raymond's motion to recuse Judge Lane from presiding over the bitterly contested case of Raymond vs Raymond.

    In her Motion for recusal, Foster-Raymond accused the judge of showing bias toward Usher's attorney John Mayoue who contributed to her 2008 campaign for re-election.

    In a lengthy response obtained by HipHopEnquirer.com, Mayoue called Tameka's petition "an assault on the integrity of the court." Mayoue called Foster-Raymond's Motion for recusal "baseless, unwarranted and untimely."

    He argued that "Lawyers and law firms routinely contribute to the election and re-election campaigns of both trial and appellate judges."

    Mayoue pointed out that Tameka's own co-counsel was hired by a law firm that also contributed to the judge's re-election coffers.

    Celebrity stylist Tameka Foster-Raymond's legal team filed a motion for a new trial today in Fulton County court, according to my confidential source who obtained the court documents.

    The court documents contain pretty damaging evidence that may (or may not) prove corruption at the state judicial level. Foster's legal team has uncovered evidence that shows Usher Raymond's attorney John Mayoue did more than just help Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane Lane raise funds for her campaign re-election.

    Last week, Foster-Raymond lost primary custody of her two sons, ages 4 and 3, to her ex-husband, Usher Raymond. Foster-Raymond is seeking a new trial on the grounds that Usher's legal team may have had an unfair advantage over hers.

    The motion filed by Foster-Raymond today officially stays the judge's order. Which means Tameka retains primary custody of the children until the motion is allowed or dismissed.

    Mayor Kasim Reed's special events director has resigned less than a week after her arrest on DUI and reckless driving charges, The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

    Stacii Jae Johnson, 41, was arrested late Thursday by an Atlanta police officer who saw her driving her white Porsche at 82 mph in a 55 mph zone on I-85 near the I-75 split.

    Johnson was reportedly uncooperative and refused a field sobriety test, according to a police report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    She was responsible for a small staff of about six people in the mayor's office of special events. The office processed permits for outdoor music festivals and locations for movie shoots, according to The AJC.

    There's no word on whether the mayor is taking applications for a new special events director.
