'Family Matters' Actress -- Engaged to Ricky Romance

2/6/2011 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Remember the chick who played Laura Winslow's BFF on "Family Matters???" Well, she's engaged now ... and the lucky man is none other than Chris Brown's nemesis, Ricky Romance!

Cherie Johnson -- who played Maxine on the show -- got engaged to Ricky a short while back -- but TMZ has learned the couple is now trying to pitch a reality show about their relationship.

We're told the two are pitching themselves as the "new Bobby and Whitney" -- and promise to tackle all sorts of crazy issues like pregnancy and Ricky's parole obligations.

So far, it's unclear if any networks are taking the bait.

Her name is Kelly Shanygne Williams. I just remembered off the top of my head. Huge FM fan as a kid. Cherie Johnson played her best friend.
Incidentally, Cherie Johnson is my mother's name. How weird.

Maxine was Laura's best friend on Family Matters, people.

Yes, she was also in Punky Brewster. She must be desperate for money now.

I'm so glad you got and up-close and personal shot of that pimple on her cheek. It looks raw and infected. Other than the pimple, who cares about this story?????

Seriously Annoyed    

Punky Brewster AND Family Matters.
I really hope she doesn't do this. It's bad enough she chose him. Why does everyone think controversy, sex tapes and/or a reality show will save them. RESPECT YOURSELVES PEOPLE. If you are desperate for money, GET A JOB!!!!!

Cherie Johnson did play on Family Matters as Laura's best friend Maxine. She dated Waldo on the show as well... but aways, she can do much better than him. I hope no network picks up their reality show idea. Too many on TV already as it is.
