BET set it off last week with The New Edition Story, which made for a highly anticipated three days. Getting a front row seat into the lives of New Edition caused many people that were portrayed in the movie to raise an eye brow of disbelief, such as Stacey Lattisaw. For those who remember at one point in time Stacey Lattisaw and Johnny Gill were the item.
If you can convert back to the The New Edition Story when Johnny Gill (Played by Luke James) was first introduced he was asked about his relationship with “Redbone Lattisaw” and how they were high school sweethearts. When Johnny was brought back in episode two, the scene where Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant (Played by Algee Smith) conversed about Gill’s relationship, he revealed that they were no longer together and rubbed the back of his hand alluding to complexion being the problem.
Stacy Lattisaw family was not happy about that at all especially her brother, Jerry as he states:
“My mom don’t care about what color Johnny Gill is!!!” he said. “If it wasn’t for her, he wouldn’t be in New Edition period!!! She basically got him his first record deal …. by the way, Stacy husband is brownskin too!!! How they gon’ put my motha out there like that! JG u still my brother tho!”
