Wendy Williams is a journalist. That means that she will often interview people with whom she may not see eye-to-eye (see: Omarosa). And so it’s interesting that she had Nicole Murphy on her show considering Nicole’s past with hopping on married men and Wendy’s recent issues with her once-married-man hopping on someone else. But that’s Wendy: digging deep into the issues!
Remember how a few days ago Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife Nicole Murphy denied that she was having an affair with a married man after those pictures of her and Antoine Fuqua kissing by the pool of a hotel in Italy made the rounds? Well, Nicole is now claiming that this whole time she was out here thinking that Antoine and his wife of 20 years Lela Rochon were broken up. Oh, Nicole! What has he been telling you? Or what are you trying to pull on us?
Those of us who count Robin from Waiting To Exhale as our favorite Waiting To Exhale character stretched out our fingers and downed a Gatorade yesterday in preparation to attack the Instagram page of Nicole Murphy with Robin bird emojis (the official emoji of Robin from Waiting To Exhale). Because Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife got papped touching lips with the husband of Lela Rochon, who played Robin. But Nicole Murphy would like you to know to not nominate her and Lela Rochon’s husband for The Home Wrecking Hall of Fame and The Cheating Slut Hall of Fame, respectively, because they’re just close family friends who greet each other with a touch of the lips.
While Mariah Carey was ringing in her first Valentine’s Day as a newly-single lady (aka reclining atop a pile of 2,094 cotton candy-stuffed Build-A-Bears wearing custom Swarovski crystal-studded butterfly wings as a life-size Hello Kitty hand-feeds her cherry crèmes from a 500 piece Whitman’s Sampler) Page Six says her ex Nick Cannon was wining and dining Michael Strahan’s former fiancée Nicole Murphy.
After having dinner with friends earlier in the week, a source says that Nick and Nicole showed up at Tavern on the Green for dinner at 11pm and were pretty much the only people in the place. They also brought some extra-stinky cheese to the meal; the same source says they spent most of their meal holding hands across the table and “gazing at each other”.
And because God has a sense of humor, the source adds that a Mimi song came on while they were eating, but they didn’t pay much attention to it. Rude! Everyone knows that when a Mimi song comes on, you drop whatever you’re doing and you lip synch the hell out of it with your eyes closed and your middle finger pressed against your right ear while your left hand frantically swats away a bunch of invisible fairies.
I’m not sure how I feel about this pairing. The Miss Cleo in me thinks it’s a bad idea, because there’s all kinds of spooky letter juju going on with their names: Nick, Nicole, their exes are Mariah and Michael. Not to mention that I think I read something about this in the Do Not Dos section of the Gold Digger’s Handbook. Like, ‘Do not do another gold digger’ or something like that. Then again, I would love to see what it’s like when two former wallet humpers go on a date. I bet they weren’t actually “gazing” at each other; they were just staring impatiently while waiting for the other one to reach for the check.
