My biggest interview last night was Eddie Murphy. I don’t think we really believed we would get him going into it. This is Eddie Murphy, he’s not the most accessible of celebrities and he’s never the celebrity who gives every outlet on the press line a few minutes. That said, Eddie is campaigning for Dolemite Is My Name and if you haven’t seen this on Netflix… Let’s sidebar quickly about Dolemite because it’s GREAT. Full Story

Eddie Murphy, who is often credited with saving Saturday Night Live during the tumult of the early 1980s, the years in which Lorne Michaels walked away from the show, finally returned to Studio 8H after 35 years, hosting SNL for the first time since he left in 1984. (He appeared briefly in the 40th anniversary special, but performed in no sketches. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I’m so excited about Eddie Murphy’s return to Saturday Night Live this weekend, it’s almost pathetic. But I can’t be the only one. SNL is excited. And I wonder if they’re actually planning two shows – the main show, obviously, but also a show behind the scenes.  Read Full Intro

If you are a fan of Whitney Houston, you know about Robyn Crawford. Robyn was Whitney’s best friend from adolescence to adulthood. Robyn was Whitney’s creative director for a while and toured with her often. Where there was Whitney, there was always Robyn, until Robyn quit and left in 2000 because she couldn’t watch Whitney spiral out anymore …and also Bobby Brown. Full Story

When you give Jamie Foxx a microphone at the Governors Awards, and let him know he has three to four minutes to adlib remarks while in a room with this year's Oscar contenders like Tom Hanks, Leonardo DiCaprio and Scarlett Johansson, you have to know the hype-man is going to dole out the shout-outs. Full Story

Eddie Murphy returns to acting after a three year hiatus with Dolemite Is My Name, a biopic of Dolemite creator Rudy Ray Moore. Like every other biopic I’ve seen at TIFF this year, Dolemite is standard, run-of-the-mill biographical stuff, taking no real risks and doing nothing particularly inventive with the material. Full Story

Lainey emailed me last night and said I needed to go look at Norm Macdonald’s Twitter. So I did and it turns out that Macdonald, who appeared on SNL40 over the weekend, was having an SNL-themed story time about the week running up to the anniversary special. The big revelation that everyone is latching onto is that Eddie Murphy was supposed to appear in the “Celebrity Jeopardy” sketch as Bill Cosby, but that he backed out at the eleventh hour because he didn’t want to “kick a man when he was down”. Full Story
