Sunday maked the 20th anniversary of Boomerang. The homie Courtneyluv reports in the movie Eddie Murphy played a fly New York marketing executive who had his way women. He was a suave go-getter. I could remember sneaking to watch it on VHS while my mommy was at work because she would not let me watch it. This movie, was Eddie Murphy’s first turn as a romantic lead and to the box office it was a success raking in $131 million.  No matter where you may go people will remember the one liners: “You have to co-ordinate!” or “Love shoulda brought your a** home last night.”

In other news Eddie Murphy put all sorts of speculation to rest Saturday night when he and girlfriend Rocsi Diaz finally came out as a couple at a pre-BET Awards celebration.

The couple was seen loving on each other as they attended a pre-BET Awards bash at Union Station in Los Angeles.

The 51-year-old actor and Rocsi looked comfortable being photographed together(I was told Rocsi hated taking photos). The two ever wear coordinated outfits on the red carpet at CEO Debra Lee’s gathering.

Murphy donned a pair of deep blue dress shoes to match Diaz’s navy key-hole cocktail dress, and kept an arm warmly wrapped around her waist throughout the evening.

Diaz, 28, joined Murphy on a family vacation in Maui, Hawaii as recently as June 12, but neither have previously confirmed nor denied their relationship.

My Uncle Lorenzo told me about this stocking story that hit the net last week. In the video below you see the is the horrifying moment a millionaire convicted of burning down his $3.5 million mansion poisoned himself in court.


As the guilty verdict was read out, Michael Marin closed his eyes and held his head in his hands before appearing to slip something into his mouth.


Minutes later, the 53-year-old collapsed to the floor in convulsions and died.


The shocking scenes were caught on camera in Maricopa County Superior Court in Arizona, where Marin had been on trial since May.


The father-of-four torched his mansion in Phoenix on July 5, 2009, because, prosecutors claimed, he could no longer afford the mortgage.

Fire Department investigators concluded that the blaze was started deliberately after finding several points of origin throughout the sprawling 6,600 sq ft home, which boasted four garages.

Marin was found outside the burning property after climbing from a second floor bedroom using a rope ladder and wearing scuba diving gear, according to Fox News. READ MORE
