Seems kinda like karma but only for Mike. He's a low life piece of shit. He did ABC, boyz II men and alot of his artists dirty too.
I always love seeing the pics of them when they were all little and real friends.
Johnny was not in that pic and is playing himself. What Nicole said? He was at the head of the table cutting the turkey lol?

Ralph clearly is smoking rocks if he cant remember that Johnny was bought in to REPLACE him! Now they doing underhanded shit together?

And those pics of them when they were little always makes me wonder about why people say Bobby was jealous of Whitney and used her etc. Bobby has been working since before he hit puberty. Way before we knew of Whitney. I can't wait for his BET movie, I really like the actor who plays him.

Johnny is not a true member of NE as far as I am concern. How dare he trademark anything. Can't stand his ugly ass. And Ralph is completely wrong and I hope their little tour bombs! I will go see the others 4 anyday!

i think ralph and johnny was partners. and you know what i mean by that.

HUH WHATEVER! said...

Like I thought....The three stooges ain't about shit! They have been shitting on Ralph since the dawn of time. I don't blame the man for wanting to do his on thing for once. Mike talking about Johnny came into the group. Johnny has been in the group for thirty years. These backup dancers need Ralph to make that big money, and Bobby is on his last leg. I love BB but he can't sing anymore and he can barely move. If no one had the trademark to the New Edition name for 25 years. Then what's the problem? Ronnie and Mike have no talent to speak on. It's not like they wrote songs for other people or made a name for themselves as producers or something. Ricky has no ambition and didn't Segway his NE status into anything fruitful besides being in the groups. Ralph has his on radio show and Johnny is in plays. Plus now those two are touring with Keith Sweat. The rejects of NE need to pipe down and do their own thing until the golden boys of NE decide they are ready to tour.

HUH WHATEVER! said...

Let me also mention that Ronnie is making a mistake with he and his wife Shamari becoming Real Housewives of Atlanta members. I guess everything is about that money honey. Without Ralph there is no New Edition and they need to show and respect that.

Johnny has been in the group for 30 years?

So they replaced Gerald Levert with Ralph?

@1:43 Johnny was brought in to replace Ralph??? I thought Johnny appeared when Bobby left 🤔

I always felt Johnny gave them a more mature sound and he was EVERYTHING on "Can you stand the rain"

After Bobbys success, it was a 4 man group, that is when RALPH was about to bounce and go solo w/ his bitch ass which is why the remaining members formed BBD so they wouldn't be assed out. Then when they found Johnny to add to NE, Ralph bitch ass got jealous and was giving I ain't going nowhere teas, so he spent all of that era rolling his bitch ass eyes w/ his bitch ass mouth poked out about Johhny being a second lead. THAT'S the real tea. You hoes can spin it whenever way you want to.

HUH WHATEVER! said...

@ 3:44 you lying bitch! The record company would not sign off on Ralph's album until he did another NE album first. Ralph and Johnny have been close friends for ages. Mike Bivins or Ricky Bell take your bitter asses home.

lol @ 3:44pm. anyway, i can't believe they still beefing after all these years. i guess they will always have a love/hate relationship with each other.

@ prissa you may be right although I thought I remembered from the movie Johnny putting Ralph on that he was there to replace him. I could be wrong though.
Yes I loved his and Johnny's vocals on can you stand the rain. mike and ronnie just snap and rock through the whole song lol.

*Ralph's

From what I remember in the BET flick, Ralph was tryna go solo and Mike brought JG in for lead vocals in his place without discussing it with them first. R found out he had another NE album to do, saw JG at the studio and flipped out. I don't think JG would have been included without Jimmy's and Terry's blessing since they WERE trying to mature their sound, but the who way it was conceived was shiesty AF IMO. Then again, Ralph shouldn't have popped off if he didn't have a solidfied solo deal in the first place.....

It was all good going back down memory lane but to see these grown ass niggas still don't properly take care of their business is sad as hell.
