New Edition and BBD member Ronnie DeVoe celebrated his 50th birthday party in Atlanta over the weekend. Ronnie's wife, Shamari DeVoe, and his mom, Flo DeVoe, were on hand to help him celebrate his milestone.

Invited guests included Bell Biv DeVoe members Rickey Bell, center, Mike Bivins, right, Kelly Price, Damion Hall, Tichina Arnold, Cherelle, Stevie J, Big Tigger, Daron Jones, DJ Fadelf and Egypt Sherrod, Trina Braxton, Q Parker and more!

Local businesswoman Teresa Caldwell, Bow Wow's mom, pictured left, ended her boutique partnership with reality TV star NeNe Leakes. The two women parted ways and closed their Swagg Boutique in Buckhead. NeNe opened her own shop out in the Atlanta suburb of Duluth, Ga.

Kelly Price brought down the house as she performed Happy Birthday to Ronnie.

    Kelly can sang. She's gotten some of her weight back too.

  • MsVAllDay

    Why does Tichina Arnold look like that. She got to much money for this foolishness.

  • Pamela

    What the hell happened to Kelly Price? She was down to at least a size 12 earlier this year. Now she look like she a size 32 + 2 - 6 = 28 + carry over the 9 = size 37. Well damn.

    And what the hell happened to Tichina Arnold? All those late night lesbian sleepovers must be catching up with old girl. She looks horrible.

  • Lanegra??

    You almost got me fired reading the math of kelly price. I laughed so hard LOL

  • Lanegra??

    Thank you auntie for spilling some nene tea. I was going to pick up some pizza and saw her in the new shop. I couldn't believe my eyes the area is not very high traffic and I thought it was a second location not a replacement.

  • pure_rachet

    you are a down right fool for this.

  • Noirluv45

    Happy Birthday, Ronnie. ?? BBD is one of those groups whose music and talent will still be talked about many years from now.

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Yesss!! I was seww in love with Ronnie.. hooomahgawd.. lol

  • pure_rachet

    hold up... do y'all see the girl with the multicolored fur and clear boots? she is trying to hide her leg roll. I actually like her look though except them boots. Check my name before you come for me lol.

  • brownisback

    I damn near peed...matter fact let me get my azz up and go to the bathroom!

  • Dowoop

  • pure_rachet

    He could get it then, he could get it now.

  • brownisback

    What in the name of all peacocks is goin on!

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    no shade but, i thought Kelly lost all the weight.

  • IamAllnatural

    I was thinking the same thing. I guess she’s gaining it back.?????

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    she always manages to look like a damn fool .. whether it's her hair or her questionable outfit choices.

  • IamAllnatural

    Where did she find such hideous plastic boots from? I know her whole legs sweatin.

  • Yoni7

    I'm done for the day.....truly. LMAOOO

  • Listen2Me

    She found it again ??

  • IamAllnatural

    Ronnie looks great, he doesn’t look a day over 35. This is why white people hate us but want to be like us because black don’t crack. Did he recently have twins (on his t-shirt)?
    I don’t know who would get in business with Nene fake, ignorant, think she rich, ratchet... Glad Bow Wow’s mom came to her senses.

  • hottlanta

    Go on gyrl and show them gryls. Ain't mad at cha. Neigh Neigh has a clothing boutique. Is that Derek J wearing a wig in the lace up front/tight brown cat suit.

  • 1BlueStar

    Only local celebs, Ronnie? I don't know....maybe I'm expecting too much for "Ronnie from New Edition"

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!
  • stav

    Ronnie is not showing his age at all! The breast he bought his wife are way too big for her frame.

  • brownisback

    You know it!

  • Clopretty

    Did his wife have their twins already? i could've sworn she was just pregnant!

  • brownisback

    Ya'll are savage as usual

  • pure_rachet

    If I don't have anything nice to say, I don't comment. But she entirely crossed the line

  • KcoolMuziq

    Tichina(whom I sat behind at the NAACP Awards when she was co starring in "Everyone Hates Chris") arrived with a date I never seen before.

  • Bashi22

    Yes she as a new man on her IG

  • Shaun M

    He looks great for 50!

  • bemetoo

    Kelly just can't get slim she needs to accept the fat around her waist and neck and just live

  • Coy little wink

    your disclaimer ?

    Those boots are pure dumb. Check out the condensation. Why not just wear a sandal if u want to show your ham hocks...

  • Tammie Reed

    Yep, she had them about a month ago, that snap back aint NO joke lol!

  • Tammie Reed

    I LOVE Ronnie, he is such a class act and so fun to be around! I didn't know that NeNe and Teresa closed their boutique hmm? Went in there one time, it was just ok.

  • hottlanta

    I am part time rachet when I go on vacation but I am classy with it. Some sales clerk laughed all the way to the bank. Like they say it is a market for something for everybody and they didn't lie.

  • Chocolate Bliss

    The Devoe babies are 4 months old and Shamari looks great!!

  • Chocolate Bliss

    She just had twin babies loll

  • Quitedeliteful

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Quitedeliteful

    Tichina Arnold usually looks good. I'm surprised to see her looking so dreary -- maybe her stylists cancelled her appointment...

  • Enoughsaid2020

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Looks like everyone had a great time. Ronnie still has that baby face. OAN: I knew Nene and Bow Wow's mom's partnership wasn't going to last. I hope her solo business is a success. RQ: I wonder if Nene's business model is similar to Rasheeda's?

  • The Chosen One


  • Ni Ni

    Maybe he wanted people he is actually friends with to share his special day with. Ronnie has paid his dues and im sure he is beyond all that fronting with celebs. Anyway, i think he had 3 parties in 3 cities to celebrate as well.

  • Ni Ni
