Spike TV held a “One Night Only” event in honor of Eddie Murphy at the Saban Theatre over the weekend and for the first time for many of us, we got to see Eddie’s new model boo, Paige Butcher.
It looks like Rocsi will be following in the footsteps of former 106 & Park co-host Terrence J, as she has just accepted a gig with Entertainment Tonight as a correspondent.
People often say seven is the number of completion, and after seven years of hosting the #1 music countdown show, Rocsi Diaz is ready to take her career to the next level. The New Orleans native has her eye set on Hollywood and doesnâ€™t plan on looking back. Rocsi can be found in the latest edition of YRB magazine rocking exclusive pieces from Japanese brand Issey Miyake’s new collection.
YRBÂ Magazine recently caught up with Rocsi. During the interview, she discussed 106 and Park and how it changed her life while also revealing the misconceptions that people may have of her. She also gave sound advice to aspiring talent who are hoping to snag the spot as the next BET â€™106 and Parkâ€™ host.
Rocsi On her passions:
My passion lies in bettering and empowering our youth. Through my charity, The RocStar Foundation, mentoring and speaking engagements and through how I live my everyday life, I try to be a role model â€“ not only for young girls â€“ but for the youth as a whole. I want them to know they can achieve anything they set forth in their mind. You always need that cheerleader in your life.
On Misconceptions people may have of her:
Iâ€™m not what people think I am. People see a persona on television and they tend to think that is how people really are, when in actuality, we are all just human beings. Iâ€™m a very spiritual, humble and down-to-earth person. There is so much more to me than what meets the eye.
Kelly Rowland has been keeping herself quite busy. Not only is she on every other magazine cover, taking more acting roles and performing, the former Destinyâ€™s Child member has designed two watches for women. As the global ambassador for TW Steel, Rowland has â€œSpecial Editionâ€ time pieces that are sophisticated and versatile.
TW Steel celebrated the unveiling of its Kelly Rowland Special Edition timepieces with industry heads, celebrities and socialites.
The party went down at Manhattanâ€™s The Standard Hotel, and included music, drinks and an impressive fireworks show.
Kelly spoke about the event:
â€œ I love the statement wearing a big watch makes and they just get what it is to be fun and stylish at the same time. â€
â€œI know from previous experience that TW Steel does everything â€˜Big Timeâ€™ and tonight was no exception at The Standard, especially with that outstanding firework display.
For me itâ€™s amazing to finally share with everyone the watch designs we worked on together and to see everyoneâ€™s enthusiasm for them. I simply love how they look, theyâ€™re both exciting and stylish which was my goal all along.â€

Who is she trying to kid? They look like more than friends in the photos below and check out her interview…
Sunday maked the 20th anniversary of Boomerang. The homieÂ CourtneyluvÂ 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 Murphyâ€™s first turn as a romantic lead and to the box office it was a success raking in $131 million. Â No matter where you may go people will remember the one liners: â€œYou have to co-ordinate!â€ or â€œLove shoulda brought your a** home last night.â€
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.
What do yall think Will they make it?
I’m quite over this publicity stunt. Â Really? Â Rocsi and Eddie? The former Ms. 106 & Park and one of the funniest guys in Hollywood with his kids in Hawaii? Â I’m over it and it hasn’t even started. Â I’ll believe it a little more if it last until a Hollywood awards show. Â If he takes Rocsi, then I may consider that this relationship is real. Â Check out the photos and let me know what you think? Read More »
