In ‘Yes, They’re Still Doing The Same Old Two Step” news, En Vogue is en civil war. Yes, Dawn Robinson went to Twitter to announce that she and Maxine Jones are no longer a part of the group and are now hitting the road with two new girls. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the other two original members of En Vogue – Cindy Herron and Terry Ellis – say that they have asked one time replacement member to join them and fulfill duties.
Dawn Robinson said:
“MAXINE & I HAVE LEFT THE BUILDING & NOW WE’RE REHEARSING FOR AN EV TOUR W 2 “NEW” GIRLS. WE WILL BE IN UR CITY SOON SO COME PARTY WITH US!
Max & I are thrilled at all the love we are receiving from each of u! This is gonna be FUN
We appreciate being lifted up so high…blessings to each of you “
In response: Cindy and Terry wrote:
Dear En Vogue fans,
In regards to the recent twitter and face book posts alleging that Terry and Cindy have replaced Maxine Jones with Rhona, we would like to respond. Terry and Cindy are not replacing Maxine Jones. We have however asked Rhona to fill in temporarily so that we can continue to bring live shows to our fans. Thus far, Rhona has only done three shows with us since June 2012. The group has always added someone whenever a member has been unable or unwilling to perform or has left the group. Terry and I have not kicked Maxine out of the group. There are always two sides to a story and many internal facts that you the fans aren’t hearing about. In an effort to not air dirty laundry, or appear to point the finger at anyone, we respectfully choose to remain silent on the internal issues. We appreciate you the fans continuing to support Envogue individually, and as a whole.
Cindy and Terry
I say: Unless it’s the four of y’all, give it up, turn it loose.
