You’ll Never Believe Who’s Marrying Laura Winslow’s Best Friend

- By Bossip Staff

Here’s Cherie’s author bio from

After her role in the television 80 s sitcom Punky Brewster’ Cherie co-starred in another popular 90 s sitcom Family Matters as the best friend of Laura Winslow. She also had recurring roles in The Parkers and Days of Our Lives. In addition, she started an after school recreational program Off the Streets for kids whose parents worked late night. More recently, Cherie wrote, produced and starred in the movie ‘I Do … I Did on DVD and BET, along with a long list of other available and upcoming DVD s. Now Cherie has embarked on a new career as an author with the help of J.M. Benjamin, joining the A New Quality Publishing family.

And here’s the synopsis of her book, “Around The World Twice.”

Ashley is a successful half Black-half Latina female living a glamorous lifestyle of a Hollywood movie star, or so it would seem, if you re on the outside looking in. Truth is, she is tired of failed relationships and is fearful of being alone. She struggles to find love and begins to question herself. Lilian cashed in on the normal life of a housewife early, marrying the guy all the girls wanted back in high school, house, white picket fence, etc…she was living the American Dream. Her dream life soon becomes one that resembles a nightmare, leaving her vulnerable. After an invitation and a lot of persuasion from her friend Ashley, Lillian decides to leave the security of her long time home in New York and move to Los Angeles. It is there that she realizes maybe she has more in her life to change than she may have initially thought. Around The World Twice is a story about two best friends whose lives are synonymous, despite the different social circles they traveled in. It is a story of true friendship in which both ladies, together, contribute to building each other up in order to become better and stronger women, as well as triumphant for love of self and one another.

Helluva romance for Ricky.

    She is not Laura Winslow. Why do they have it there. Hakim died in a Motorcycle accident didn’t he, not car. I can’t believe a female would look @ this Ricky Romance fool and take him seriously in life. She’s probably no better or she’s looking to get paid off of his stupidity.

    First off she is not pregnant and she is not dating/engaged to ricky. She said on twitter a few weeks ago that she is not pregnant because she is “35 yrs old and cannot get pregnant” then a couple of days ago she said she is going along with all of this for publicity and money.
