Ronnie DeVoe Mother

Ronnie’s mother, Florence E. DeVoe, was played by La La Anthony, the wife of NBA star, Carmelo Anthony.  In the mini-series, Flo was seen calling out the other mothers for firing her brother, Brooke Payne.  If it wasn’t for Brooke, Ronnie wouldn’t have been a member of New Edition.

New Edition originally included singers, Travis Pettus and Corey Rackley.  Ronnie ended up replacing Travis.  Uncle Brooke is the best uncle in the world! In one of the most emotional scenes of The New Edition Story Ronnie calls Bobby Brown out for making Payne have a heart attack.
