The New Edition Story dug up a lot of history on the group that many had forgotten and it seems that fights the gentlemen had ‘in real life’ were epic.
Once such moment is a tension filled appearance on BET’s ‘Video Soul,’ which was done during the peak of their success.
The interview was reconstructed during Part 3 of ‘The New Edition Story’ (click HERE if you missed that), but the real live version is way more entertaining!
Bobby Brown was acting a plumb fool throughout the group interview, Ralph Tresvant is clearly agitated and annoyed, Mike Bivens is getting beeper calls and deflects to Ronnie Devoe, Johnny Gill is just happy to be there, while Ricky Bell seemed high as hell when he was trying to explain ‘BBD’ to host Sherry Carter.

It’s been a big week for New Edition. Not only were they honored by a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (click HERE if you missed that), but their highly anticipated biopic also aired it’s first installment.
BET aired Part 1 of ‘The New Edition Story,’ last night and social media was ablaze with joy as the network hit the bull’s eye on everything from casting to costumes. I was one of the first to view part one a few weeks ago, and I can honestly say that watching it a 2nd time was just as enjoyable as the first!

While the story is about as tried and true as most music industry tales, there’s no other group in modern black music history as deserving of a biopic as New Edition, as their musical reign spanned over 3 decades.

The iconic music group has secured a deal with BET and New Edition members Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ronnie DeVoe, Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant have all signed on as co-producers for the film that is being developed into a three-night miniseries premiering on the cable network in 2016.
