According to the Hollywood Reporter, Eddie Murphy is in talks to join the Richard Pryor biopic. The biopic, directed by Lee Daniels will star Mike Epps as the legendary comedian.

Murphy will reportedly play his father, LeRoy Pryor. In addition to Murphy, Entertainment Tonight reported that Kate Hudson will be joining the movie. Hudson would play Jennifer Lee Pryor,  Pryor’s fourth wife and as well as his seventh. The couple married in 1981, divorced in 1982 and then remarried in 2001.

blackest award show moments feat

Don’t know if you noticed but the Oscars didn’t exactly have that much for Black people. With the exception of Common and John Legend performing and winning the Academy Award for their song “Glory,” the show was a sea of White faces. It’s the reason we didn’t live tweet the show like we usually do. Instead, we simply showed you what our faves were wearing on the carpet. So in honor of our disappointment and in anticipation for tonight’s BET Honors, we’re highlighting some of the Blackest moments from award shows in the past decade or so.

From BlackVoices 

The last time Eddie Murphy made an appearance on “Saturday Night Live” was Dec. 15, 1984. Thirty-one years later, it appears Murphy will finally return to the show that helped make him a star. In an interview with Roland Martin for NewsOne Now, Murphy said he’d appear on the forthcoming 40th anniversary special for “SNL” that NBC will air on Feb. 15.

“It just never worked out where the timing was right for me to do it,” Murphy said when asked why he hadn’t appeared on “SNL” in decades. “They’re actually having a 40th anniversary, I think, in two weeks. I’m going to that, and that’ll be the first time I’ve been back since I left.”

A representative for NBC was not immediately available for comment.

Murphy’s acrimonious history with the show dates back to a joke David Spade made about him on Weekend Update during the 1990s, when Murphy’s career had hit a low point after “Vampire in Brooklyn.” (“Look, children, a falling star.”)

Is Eddie Murphy Expecting A Baby With Girlfriend, Paige Butcher?

Is Eddie’ Murphy getting ready to up his kiddie roster from eight to nine?

According to Star, the father of eight is expecting a child with girlfriend, Paige Butcher, and the two are planning to wed before the baby is born.

“Paige is no dumb blonde,” a source told the magazine.

“She made it clear that she wants to be married before having their baby, so they’re hashing out a prenup before announcing anything.”

Considering how many kids Eddie already has, this story wasn’t hard to believe. However, as it turns out, the reports are false. A rep on behalf of the comedian and actor recently told RumorFix that the pregnancy rumors are definitely “not true.”

Eddie, 54, and Paige, 34, have been dating for over a year. Despite the fact that she’s dating a celebrity, Paige says she prefers to lead a private life, which is why she doesn’t have social media accounts.

“I’m in a relationship with a celebrity, so I felt like there’s already enough of me out there,” she told Vanity Fair. “I felt like I was giving out too much information. I was giving people too much access.”

“I like to keep as much private as possible now. … People will use anything against you. The more you put out, the more you get back.”

Are you feeling Eddie and Paige as a couple?

All anyone has been talking about the past few days is surveillance cameras catching Solange Knowles attacking her brother-in-law Jay Z while his wife and her sister Beyonce stood by and watched in an elevator following a Met Gala after party.

Nas

Nas was happy to take himself off of the market and marry singer Kelis but that marriage soon went up in flames. In December 2009, the Queensbridge rapper was ordered to pay the R&B singer $51,000 a month in alimony and child support, but the bad economy worked in Nas’ favor and 13 months later he was able to convince the judge that his payments should be lowered. Even though at one point Nas was in arrears and owed Kelis more than $300,000 in back child support, the judge agreed to lower his payments to $20,000 a month in alimony and $5,000 in child support.
