'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.

She was on both Punky Brewster (when she was a little girl) and she was Laura's friend on Family Matters (when she was a teenager).

This idiot Ricky Blowmance threatened to shoot Chris Brown. If any network gives this clown a show, they'll be the laughing stock of tv. Bobby and Whitney had talent, and not to be mean but you don't have talent. Check out Ricky's twitter posts, you'll get a good idea as to what type of person he is. The words douchebag and fake come to mind. Nice eye brow lift in your pics btw....lame-o.

S.A.M. love comment #18 you hit it on the head. So many haters in this world. Do you people even no of some of the positive things this woman has done? #blackgirlsrock like @cheriejohnson75 because she is a go getter and survived being a child star. Actress, model, writer, entrepreneur, producer.....Read up on somebody before you pass judgement. She has some beautiful pictures and she has some pics that are just okay....WHO THE F**K DOESN'T?
