New Edition: Now

In February 2012, all six members of New Edition (pictured on July 3, 2011, in New Orleans) will hit the road to celebrate the upcoming 30th anniversary of their first album, Candy Girl. Between tours, Ronnie DeVoe, 44, founded Devoe Broker Associates, a real estate company in Atlanta. Ricky Bell, 44, and Ralph Tresvant, 43, pursued solo music careers, and stayed close: in 2004, they married their longtime girlfriends in a double wedding ceremony. Tresvant was the more successful of the two, with a gold single (1999's "Sensitivity") and three albums to his name. The most entrepreneurial member of the group has turned out to be Michael Bivins, 43, who founded the record label BIV 10 and takes credit for discovering groups like Boyz II Men and Another Bad Creation. He is now the CEO of the lifestyle and entertainment company SportyRich EnterprisesJohnny Gill, 45, had his biggest solo moment in 1990, when his single "Rub You the Right Way" climbed to #3 on the charts. In 2011, Gill released his sixth studio album (and his first in 15 years), "Still Winning." As for Bobby Brown, his wild-child antics got him kicked out of New Edition but they also helped make him a star in his own right. Between 1988 and 1992, Brown, now 42, had no fewer than eight Top 10 hits, including "My Prerogative" and "Every Little Step." Throughout the years, he has dabbled in acting and appeared on several reality series, notably the TMI-filled Being Bobby Brown with then-wife Whitney Houston in 2005. In 2010, Brown proposed to his girlfriend and manager Alicia Etheridge, the mother of his youngest son Cassius, while performing at the Funk Fest in Jacksonville, FL.
