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.

Cocktails & Coins! Inside Aisha Tyler’s Wild Life After Divorce & Departure From ‘The Talk’

Published

Aisha Tyler went through a few MAJOR life changes over the past two years and now, the actress is back on top living life to the fullest.

In 2016, Tyler’s college love and husband of 20 years, Jeff Tietjens, filed for divorce from the actress. As if that weren’t an emotional challenge to overcome, Tyler was then ordered to pay Tietjens $31,250 a month in spousal support for the next four years, plus a lump sum of $500k.

Following the emotional split, Tyler’s career then took a big turn when she walked away from CBS’s The Talk. Just eight months ago, the actress left the show to pursue other passions. “I also have three other series (Criminal Minds, hosting Whose Line Is It Anyway? and voicing a character on Archer),” the actress said during the big announcement. “People always go, ‘How do you do all that?’ And I don’t always have an answer.”

While it might sound like Tyler’s woes and 360 of a life might seem completely damaging, it all turned for the better. “The unknown can be very compelling and can be interesting. Instead of thinking about it as change, think about it as dynamism,” she told HipHollywood during the screening of Dwyane Wade’s, Shot in the Dark. 

She explained, “You can’t stay the same, your life can’t stay the same. Staying the same is staying in place and staying in place is dying slowly. For me, I always reminded myself I’m not always going to feel this way, it’s not always going to be this tuff.”

“You cannot get through this experience on this planet without a little bit of pain and you need to know that and see that it’s temporary,” Aisha said. “My life is so interesting now and it wouldn’t have been without going through the stuff that I’ve been through. It’s been good for me; all this change.”

The actress is not only the star of some major network shows, but she also is about to launch her new cocktail line, Courage and Stone. “It’s been a really really exciting process,” she told us. “It really came out of my love of cocktails, my love of going to great bars and then going home and being like ‘I don’t know how to do all this.'”

Tyler then admitted that she was a whiskey girl at heart and that when she left the Talk “Julie Chen put me in a whiskey of the month club. She she’s doubled my collection in the last couple of months.”

Set to releae late spring early summer 2018.
