The members of the legendary R&B group New Edition were honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards at the 2017 BET Awards on Sunday. But their moment in the spotlight was nearly ruined by fools on Black Twitter who ruthlessly mocked and taunted band member Ricky Bell‘s transparent hairline.
Congratulations to New Edition original member Ron DeVoe. The 49-year-old Atlanta businessman and his faithful wife, former singer Shamari Fears, are expecting their first child together!
A gossipmonger on the Alley dropped some interesting tea on New Edition‘s Michael Bivins. It gives new insight into his antisocial, anti-woman personality.
It’s been said that the most ruthless leaders are narcissists, which explains why Bivins was successful as a businessman but sucked at interpersonal relationships.
Actor and singer Woody McClain spent last year’s 4th of July holiday with singer Bobby Brown and his family. McClain, who portrays Bobby in BET’s miniseries The New Edition Story, is pictured right with Bobby, center, and child actor Tyler Williams, left who plays young Bobby.
Fans of 1980s R&B group New Edition have something to look forward to. BET has green lighted a biopic featuring the R&B balladeers whose sultry love songs include “If it Isn’t Love”, “I’m Still In Love With You”, “Lost in Love” and “Helplessly In Love”.
R&B crooner Johnny Gill was featured on last night’s edition of TV One’s acclaimed music series ‘Unsung‘.
One of the subjects that viewers tuned in to hear Gill discuss were the rampant bisexual rumors that have dogged him over the years.
Gill, 46, who dated R&B singer Stacey Lattisaw when he was 15-years-old, seemed conflicted when talking about the persistent gay rumors.
On the one hand he says he has “compassion” for homosexuals, but on the other hand, he says, “it just doesn’t feel good.”
“If I could tell you why I sure would have by now … at this point in time I would have been able to cure that issue … to get rid of that issue,” he explained.
“I took (sic) for the life of me never, never understood where it came from, why it lasted as it’s lasted.”
R&B singer Natina Reed’s troubled life ended in tragedy when she was struck and killed by a motorist as she walked along a dark stretch of highway in Decatur late Friday.
The singer was living at a seedy, rundown extended stay motel about 12 miles from where she was killed, according to a police incident report obtained by The Atlanta Journal Constitution.
From loyal reader Dana L:
Bobby Brown was in Jacksonville, Florida performing with Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill when he called his lady and baby out on the stage, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. He said this time he will work harder on this one than he did on the last one. This happened Friday Night, May 7th.
