Yes, that's a picture of my childhood crush Ronnie DeVoe from New Edition. We met him Thanksgiving Eve at Walmart. I guess everyone loves Walmart even seasoned celebrities. So when we walked into Walmart late Wednedsday night around 11pm the first face we saw in the checkout line was Ronnie. Shirl and I were completely star-strucked! We started arguing about if it was really him. I kept saying I think that guy is too short to be Ronnie and she kept saying that "IS" him. So we got my mom to go over and ask him his name. He started giggling and said "yes mam I am Ronnie DeVoe" as Shirl and I watched behind the produce stand like young teenagers. We were so embarrassed and excited that we hid behind the fruit...stupid! My mom walked away and told us he said "tell your girls I said hi." When he was walking out of the store he turned back to smile and we ran him down for a picture. Unfortunately, I was too star-struck to take a picture with him but Shirl was smart enough not to miss her opportunity. He still looks really cute but the ring on his finger and mine reminded me that it is still only a dream.
