Make that a mystery woman with a hot body and an edgy sense of style!

Eddie Murphy and an unidentified blonde grabbed coffee in Beverly Hills over the weekend, and this is the second time the duo have been spotted out together in recent weeks. The two were spotted at Mastros Steakhouse in Beverly Hills last month, almost immediately after Murphy dumped ladylove Rocsi Diaz ... guess he really does love 'em and leave 'em!

Around the time of their split it was reported that Eddie thought Rocsi was calling and texting too much, so hopefully blondie here doesn't too clingy!

Eddie Murphy Stays Mum On Why He Backed Out Of Hosting The Oscars

Nov 9, 2011 05:50 PM

Eddie Murphy appeared to be in a good mood when we spotted him leaving Restoration Hardware with several bags full of goodies today, but the comedian stayed mum on why he backed out of hosting the 2012 Academy Awards.

Murphy announced that he was stepping down from the gig just one day after Brett Ratner resigned from producing the awards show, and it's widely speculated that Eddie didn't feel comfortable doing the show without the Tower Heist director by his side. After causing public outrage for using a gay slur in a recent interview, it makes sense that Ratner would back out of producing the telecast, but everyone still wants to know what was going through Murphy's head when he decided to bail.

Brian Grazer will now produce the Oscars, but AMPAS has yet to reveal who will replace Murphy as host.

BREAKING NEWS - Eddie Murphy Out As Oscars Host

Nov 9, 2011 11:00 AM

eddie-murphy-backs-out-of-oscars.jpgProducer Brett Ratner stepped down from the awards show on Tuesday, and on Wednesday it was announced that Eddie Murphy will no longer be hosting.

Ratner, Murphy's director in Tower Heist, had brought Murphy on as host. Odds are Murphy did not feel comfortable doing the awards show -- often a gamble for actors' careers (remember James Franco and Anne Hathaway's debacle from last year?), without Ratner by his side.

“I appreciate how Eddie feels about losing his creative partner, Brett Ratner, and we all wish him well,” said Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Tom Sherak.

A release from Murphy said:

    "First and foremost I want to say that I completely understand and support each party’s decision with regard to a change of producers for this year’s Academy Awards ceremony. I was truly looking forward to being a part of the show that our production team and writers were just starting to develop, but I’m sure that the new production team and host will do an equally great job."

Eddie Murphy Confirmed As Oscars Host

Sep 6, 2011 11:45 AM

EddieMurphyOfficialOscarHost.jpgDeadline reported Tuesday morning that Eddie Murphy is definitely hosting the Oscars, though the Academy has not yet made an announcement.

Director Brett Ratner produces the show, and he will tell the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences that he's chosen Murphy to host. Murphy stars in Ratner's comedy Tower Heist, out in November.

Usually, an Oscar host is not announced until January, but reportedly Murphy's talent agency, WME, thinks the news would be a good boost to his career.

He hasn't starred in a live-action pic on the big screen since 2009's forgettable Imagine That.

Murphy has stand-up comedy roots that may be what the show needs after last year's dismally reviewed show with Anne Hathaway and James Franco. Stand-ups have done best in the past -- the 1998 show hosted by Billy Crystal is still the top-rated telecast of all time.

UPDATE [12:05 p.m. PST]: The Academy has officially announced Murphy as host.

Director Brett Ratner Apologizes For Seizure Joke

Sep 5, 2011 10:45 AM

Director Brett Ratner has apologized over a joke made in the trailer for his new action/comedy Tower Heist.

In the spot, Eddie Murphy's character calls Ben Stiller's "little seizure boy." He says: "All the kids would be crying -- your eyes would be rolling back, the foam coming out -- it was very scary!" (watch above.)

RatnerApology230.jpgHeroes actor Greg Grunberg, who has a 15-year-old epileptic son, called for a boycott of the flick, Tweeting, "TERRIBLY OFFENSIVE TRAILER for #TowerHeist – Making fun @ people w/ seizures is NOT FUNNY & WRONG! 'Seizure Boy!' REALLY? #Boycott RT." He said of the studio, "They probably just don’t even realize the people they are offending and how this could possibly offend people.”

But Ratner (right) apologized over the weekend, saying, "I sincerely feel bad," and promising to ask Universal to remove the joke.

Meanwhile, Ratner is working to get Murphy as next year's Oscars host.
