Eddie Murphy has a lot of women in his life, but according to the legendary comedian, they are all one big happy family. HipHollywood caught up with Murphy, while promoting his new indie flick Mr. Church, and talked with him about being a new dad, and also how well his ex-wife Nicole Murphy, and daughters Bria, Shayne, Zola and Bella, get along with his new girlfriend and baby’s mother Paige Butcher.

“I do love my family and kids and love being around them, and I’m always there,” said Murphy. “And there is no people not getting along, and tripping. There’s none of that.”

The group recently was photographed looking happy as ever at the premiere of Bria’s new flick Amateur Night, and photographers even caught Eddie and Nicole cordially greeting each other with a kiss.

Murphy, who just welcomed his ninth child with Butcher, told us fatherhood has helped him grow as an actor, and even prepared him for his dramatic role in Mr. Church. “Just playing in one area of emotions, where you’re going for the laughs, or action movie stuff, that’s what I usually did,” explains Murphy. “This is a place that I usually don’t go.”

And it just may pay off. Critics are praising Murphy’s work in Mr. Church and saying it could nab him another Oscar nomination. In the film, Murphy plays a family cook who comes to care for a dying woman’s youngest daughter. The film is slated to hit theaters September 16th.


Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy



Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.

If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage.  So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.

Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.

“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”

“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”

To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.

“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”

So do you agree Heavenly? Let us know in the comments below.
