You couldn’t write a better song, this Eddie Murphy love-hate-triangle plays out like the words of Favorite Girl by Dave Hollister.
Tracey Edmonds decides it’s time to speak out and defend her relationship with Eddie. In a recent interview with JET magazine, Tracey Edmonds reveals:
“The Melanie Brown situation had absolutely no impact on my relationship with Eddie. I knew about the potential paternity issue. That relationship was long over and so it had absolutely no impact on Eddie and I. Eddie is a wonderful man. He’s a wonderful father and so I’ve been supportive of him throughout this whole journey. We’re very happy and we’re going strong. He’s obviously funny but he’s really brilliant to talk to. He’s very creative.”
MG says: Obviously this is PR at it’s finest. The relationship couldn’t have been long over, when we have pics of him holding hands with Mel B, shortly before he was holding hands with Tracey Edmonds on the red carpet. How can a man having a pregnant baby-mama not impact the relationship. Maybe that’s the problem, there should have been a big impact. It’s called closure.
ESSENCE.com: Speaking of famous people, is it true that you and Ne-Yo are an item?
K.S.: Ne-Yo and I are friends, but he’s just not my type of person. I had to have a conversation with him because he thought that I had written a detailed description of our sex life in my book. Instead of asking me, he responded to a reporter’s question in a tone that I didn’t appreciate, implying that I’d been telling lies about our relationship. I never claimed him as my boyfriend. Once I told him he wasn’t in my book, then he was cool.
ESSENCE.com: What about you and New Orleans rapper Lil’ Wayne?
K.S.: He’s not my boyfriend, but I’m closer to Wayne and we’ve spoken every day for the last six months. I can’t start or end my day without talking to him. And we don’t necessarily talk on the phone, but we text each other all the time. It’s a perfect relationship. He knows that no matter who he’s with and vice versa, we love each other. We don’t have any surprises. If I were to see him kissing a girl tomorrow, it would be okay because I already know about it.
ESSENCE.com: Are you concerned that people will think of you as the woman who sleeps around and writes about it?
K.S.: Again, I don’t have as much sex as people think I do. Honestly, I don’t even want to have sex. I am focused on my company and making things happen. So, again, I haven’t slept with as many people as most think I have, and my sex life is really not that different from anyone else’s.
ESSENCE.com: Most people would argue that Gotti was more like a pimp than a friend to you.
K.S.: Irv allowed me to live, and I love him to pieces for that. Whenever there was a music conference or big investors visiting the city who needed to be shown a good time, I was the “good time.” Although the circumstances were a little shady, the people I met during that time in my life are still around and I wouldn’t be where I am without them, and I still love them.
ESSENCE.com: You once wrote that you couldn’t forgive your mom. But why not forgive the woman who gave you life?
K.S.: My mother could call me and be stranded in the street, and I would not send her sh–. I could care less what happens to her. I can forgive others because none of them have ever done me wrong.
The beautiful Thandie Newton, admitted struggling with an eating disorder that started at the age of 14. In the Spetember issue of Easy Living, Thandie Newton reveals, “I had terrible bulimia for about a year, I’ve still got the scars on my knuckles from where I put my fingers down my throat.”
Newton says her obsession started as early as 14, training for her ballet exams and eating “nothing but cottage cheese.” A series of abusive relationships followed – as did the eating disorder once she reached her early 20s.
“I’d been involved with this guy for a long time, he was much older than me and I felt a lot of shame about my sexual relationship with him,” she tells the magazine. “I would have these dinners with him and then go back to the flat and I’d throw up. Then I went out with someone who was emotionally abusive, criticizing me the whole time.” [Source]
