Nicole Murphy, who has been divorced from Eddie Murphy for 6 years yet still uses his last name to open doors, enjoyed some leisure time in Beverly Hills yesterday, which was possible since her only job is occasionally blowing rich guys (currently Michael Strahan).
Here we see her showing off the trim physique that will make her a certain favorite if they ever hold a Gold Digging Whore Olympics.
Brett Ratner is the one who convinced Eddie Murphy to host the Academy Awards on February 26th, so now that Ratner has been fired for saying “fag”, Murphy is stepping down too. Maybe because he really really likes saying “fag”.
Eddie Murphy rarely does any interviews, you’d think he was in SEAL Team 6 for fucks sake, so when he sat down with Rolling Stone recently for this one, he really made it count.
On if he’ll do any more kids movies…
“I don’t have any interest in that right now. There’s really no blueprint, but I’m trying to do some edgy stuff. And I only want to do what I really want to do, otherwise I’m content to sit here and play my guitar all day.”
On ‘Beverly Hills Cop IV’…
“They’re not doing it. None of the movie scripts were right; it was trying to force the premise. If you have to force something, you shouldn’t be doing it. It was always a rehash of the old thing. It was always wrong.”
On returning to stand up comedy…
“If I ever get back onstage, I’m going to have a really great show for you all. An hour and a half of stand-up and about 40 minutes of my shitty band… But I haven’t done it since I was 27, so why fuck with it? But that’s just weighing both sides. It comes up too much for me to not do it again. It’s like, when it hits me, I’ll do it, eventually.”
This would be great because Eddie Murphy can still be really really funny, but most of his stand-up was things like, “look at this faggot ass faggot” and “what if the President was black?” I’m not so sure you can still do that. That was the 80′s, when homophobia and racism seemed perfectly reasonable.
Steve Martin went on his website (wait what?) and posted some advice for Eddie Murphy when he hosts the Oscars this year. Some if it is funny (mocking losers), some of it is not (a hanging chad reference?) but at least he tried. Unlike you, who just sat there this whole time. God I hate you so much!
Eddie Murphy has been named as the host the 84th Academy Awards, which will air on ABC on February 26. This is a huge improvement over last year but it would have been even better if it was Charlie Murphy. Then they could have done that clip/montage segment they always do with the host in the beginning with Voldemort saying, “fuck yo couch, nigga!” (hollywood reporter)
LINDSAY LOHAN – last week when she narked out Justin Timberlake on Twitter, it may have been because earlier that night, she “tried to dance with Timberlake, but he shooed her away.” I’m surprised. Lindsay seems like a perfect one night stand. The epitome of discretion. (source = ny post)
THE ACADEMY AWARDS – will expand the Best Picture category from 5 nominees to 10. Hopefully this means twice the actors on stage describing the movie and how amazing the acting was, and less time with shit like Best Screenplay or Best Score. Those people don’t even do anything. (source = e online)
EDDIE MURPHY – used to be so funny that he’s made unwatchable crap for almost 20 years, you’d actually have more fun at the theater if you went and paid and sat down and then the movie never started, and yet he’s still considered a comedy genius. Luckily choosing to do a movie by randomly picking a script out of a hat leaves lots of time for situps. (source = splash news)
