We Did This: There Will Be A “Twins” Sequel

Look, I can’t say for sure that Hollywood’s heavy-hitters were inspired by my and Amelia’s “Twinsing” post.  But I will say that it seems like a bit more than just a coincidence that mere weeks after we attempted to ignite a photo trend in “Twinsing,” it was announced that Danny Devito, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Eddie Murphy will star in a sequel to the classic 1988 movie called “Triplets.” Oh yeah that’s right, Eddie Murphy will play Arnie and Danny’s third brother. Oh, hell. This sounds like a great idea. Where do I sign up? [Dlisted]

Eddie Murphy Steps Down As Oscar Host, But We’ve Got 16 Suggestions For Who Should Replace Him!

Big news! On the heels of director Brett Ratner’s resignation as producer of the 2012 Academy Awards, host Eddie Murphy has quit the gig as well. (Murphy, FYI, stars in Ratner’s movie “Tower Heist,” and the two are buds.) Ratner stepped down after taking heat for making controversial and homophobic comments while promoting “Tower Heist.” In a statement, Murphy didn’t really explain himself, but did say, “I was truly looking forward to being a part of the show that our production team and writers were just starting to develop, but I’m sure that the new production team and host will do an equally great job.” [Newser]

Whatever, consider us kind of excited! After all, we were never psyched about Murphy being tapped as host anyway It’s not 1987. In fact, it’s not even 1996, when Eddie staged his comeback with “The Nutty Professor.” So, while the Academy now has only a couple months to fill both roles, we think this is an excellent opportunity for them to actually hire someone fresh for the job, so that the broadcast doesn’t seem so stuck in the past. Naturally, we have some suggestions … After the jump, some folks we think would actually have been great Oscar hosts.

Eddie Murphy Drops Out Of Oscars Hosting Gig

Steve Martin’s Hilarious Oscar Hosting Advice For Eddie Murphy

Awards shows are always a little bit of a hit or miss affair. Jane Lynch happened to be a pretty stellar choice for this year’s Emmys, but we’re feeling kind of meh about the idea of Eddie Murphy hosting this year’s Oscars. Never fear, all-star funny guy Steve Martin is around to offer necessary hosting advice and wisdom. As a part of a hosting duo with Alec Baldwin, Martin killed it, and in an open letter, he gives Murphy everything he needs to know about making it through the four hour mega-show monstrosity. Read the hilarious letter after the jump. Keep reading »

Eddie Murphy Will Join Tyra On “Top Model” Finale

Oh, “America’s Next Top Model,” how we wish you were still a good show! Too bad two more people are about to be dragged down by this show. A CW source has revealed that Eddie Murphy (as if he could get any lower after denying he fathered Scary Spice’s baby) will appear alongside Tyra Banks and the other judges during the final fashion show, which will feature designs from Julie Clancy. He won’t be there to judge but rather to cheer on his daughter Bria Murphy, who will walk the runway with the remaining contestants. Bria is following in the footsteps of her mother Nicole Murphy with this career choice. [E! Online] Keep reading »

Aubrey O’Day Tries To Sound Like Eddie Murphy

Eddie Murphy was never really respected as a singer, but don’t tell that to former Danity Kane member Aubrey O’Day. She has remade Eddie’s “Party All the Time,” off his 1985 LP How Could It Be. Eddie’s “Party All the Time” sounds like typical ’80s synth-heavy pop music, but Aubrey was able to update it for 2009. And by update I mean she used all the voice-enhancing technology available in 2009. That being said, I have to admit that I did enjoy listening to her version, but it won’t become my favorite song or even make it into my iPod. After the jump, compare Aubrey’s version to Eddie’s “Party All the Time” video featuring Rick James. Keep reading »

Five Things To Know About Nicole Murphy

Nicole Murphy has been dating Michael Strahan since 2007, but she definitely hasn’t been faithful that whole time. How do I know? Well, Strahan, who is known for his defensive prowess on the gridiron, placed a GPS tracking device in her car, not once, but twice. And she was still able to carry on a clandestine affair with Universal Records A&R exec Demetrius Spencer for nearly a year. I’m guessing she learned a thing or two about keeping a secret during her marriage to Eddie Murphy, who has a thing for transsexuals. Learn more about her, after the jump… [New York] Keep reading »

  • Oh Eddie Murphy, will your sleaziness know no bounds?

[DListed]
  • Remember the “Win A Date With Scarlett Johansson” Auction? Some British dude scored the evening with ScarJo (where they will attend the opening of He’s Just Not That Into You) with a bid of $40,100. Does he get to go to first base too? [Us Weekly]

    Star Couplings: Eddie Murphy’s “Marriage” Over Before It Begins
