Here at Madame Noire, we often wonder about the stars of our childhood days like Brenda Jenkins’ boyfriend on 227 or Laura Winslow from Family Matters. What happens to them after the spotlight fades? Can they work a normal job after that? How do they support themselves? Oh, the questions! In any case, in our new series “Where You Been” we track down some of our favorite stars of back in the day to see what’s up with them.

In this installment, we interview Punky Brewster’s sidekick Cherie Johnson, who also played Laura Winslow’s BFF on Family Matters. Surprisingly, Johnson is still working in Hollywood albeit behind the scenes as a producer. Watch and hear how she took the experience of a real life cheating boyfriend and made it into a movie in part one of our interview.
