Eddie Murphy Snubs Arsenio Hall


Arsenio Hall is devastated because his former best friend Eddie Murphy refuses to appear on his new talk show...

From The National Enquirer
Arsenio Hall's longtime friendship with Eddie Murphy exploded into a bitter feud after the comedy legend snubbed Arsenio's request to appear on the premier of his new talk show!
Arsenio has been rounding up big-name guests for his return to late-night TV this fall, but when he approached Eddie, the former Saturday Night Live star told him NO WAY!
Sources say Eddie, 51, put his foot down because he believes Arsenio has been capitalizing on their friendship for years and is just trying to use him for a quick ratings boost.
And Arsenio, 58, is miffed because he believes his former pal is envious of him jump-starting his career while Eddie's movies are fizzling at the box office.

Wow Arsenio is almost 60?! He looks great for his age. I hope this story isn't true. It wouldn't kill Eddie to just talk to Arsenio for 5-8 minutes on the show. It would be good to see them reuniting on TV. If Eddie squashed the beef he had with David Spade and Saturday Night Live, then he should do the same with Arsenio.

I can see Eddie being a jerk. Eddie only cares about what benefits Eddie. If I were Arsenio I would not sweat it when he needs to promote on of his multi million dollar flops he's the one that will be begging him...

Keep it moving, Arsenio. Find you a new best friend. I was a huge fan of yours back in the day. I'm glad you're coming back to night time T.V. I don't like Wendy Williams or Oprah.

Arseeeenioooooooo Haaaaaaaaaaall! Brings back memories. Can't wait.

I agree with Eddie. Arsenio is using him to boost his ratings and nobody, even Eddie Murphy wants to be used. If Arsenio still has it going on, his talent will speak for itself.

Having said that, I don't plan on watching that shit. I was Arsenioed out a long time ago, don't wanna see Eddie either. I like his brother Charlie Murphy better than him.

With the few black people in Hollywood we should be going out of our way to support each other. We are all we've got. Those Jews look out for themselves and don't care about anyone else. There are too few blacks in Hollywood to be bickering over contentious petty things.

Arsenio, One Monkey Don't Stop No Show! Lol. The Show must go on, but I won't be watching. God Bless~

These two use to be very close. IDK what happened, but something had to happen for Eddie to act this way. Eddie didn't seem to have minded hanging out and putting Arsenio in his movies or showing up together at an event. Now all of it's a problem? Eddie may be the bigger star, but Arsenio has earned his stripes as well.

I guess Hollywood friendships are different from actually being "Friends".

advise from auntie said...

I don't know when the friendship ended but here are 2 things that happen around the time the friendship cooled off.

When Eddie stated on the Arsenio show that he didn't vote Arsenio scolded him about it on air!

Arsenio was in the car when Eddie was busted with the pre-op transexual hooker, who was later found dead.

I could see if Arsenio hadn't spoken to him and years and asking him out of the blue...but if they have maintained a friendship all these years then Eddie is being stupid not to support a friend.

They are both ENTERTAINERS. Talk shows need actors and other entertainers to draw viewers to the show, and the other entertainers go on the talk show to plug their lastest project. One hand shakes the other.

Eddie is just being a selfish asshole. If he wants to have beef with someone, he needs to get Johnny Gill in check.

I agree with the posts re: blacks supporting each other. That is why it is so simple to write us out/off in Show business. We have so few numbers in the business because of Negroes like Eddie.

So what? Go on the damn show Eddie, it ain't like you got shit else to do, but pop out another FLOP.

@12:39 isn't that the point of talk shows? When Halle Berry goes on Wendy who is benefitting? BOTH. Wendy gets the reputation for having A list guests and Halle gets to talk to Wendy's demographic of younger urban women. Of course Halle is a bigger star than Wendy but that's irrelevant. Eddie should do it- no ones checking for his gay ass anyway.

@3:20p They had a minor hic-up that turned major due to silly pride and stubbornness. As a result, they did not speak for years. They were both being stubborn and posturing to the max. The situation did not warrant the loss of a long-standing friendship. Sad part is that they never re-cooped the magnitude of that friendship they once had. Just foolishness and nonsense. Foolish pride has caused many people to live very lonely lives. Unfortunately, I don’t think Eddie trust many people any more and he seems disappointed and sad!

As a friend, I'll support your show in other ways. If they didn't maintain a friendship, then it's obvious why he wouldn't do it. Can we say MJ was not supportive or mad at this family all cuz he didn't appear on their projects? No, not at all. We can say family/friends or not, your budget can't afford me. And the money or attn you will get from me being on it deserves a WIIFM response.

Whatever.

I have been around for a minute and Eddie gave arsenio way more than arsenio gave him. In fact if it wasn't for his relationship with eddie and the pop he use to get from bringing him on the arsenio Hall the show might not have ever been.

Eddie was all about black helping blacks. He helped Keenan ,Robert Townsend Mooney. etc

When Arsenio's show went out so did Arsenio. What has he done since? Back then he was sweating eddie but I am betting the farm he hasn't called eddie i a minute. Now he is trying to recapture lightning in a bottle. Eddie is like man please.

I can respect it because Back then Arsenio was playing his Eddie card for all it was worth << Real talk

Arsenio was licving off the money but realized bills forever come. I wish him much success but
I understand

No lie I was just reading this article from 98 yesterday

Appearing on the show shouldn't be a problem. Sitting in a chair for 20 mins and having a chat on camera isn't that big a deal. It's not like Arsenio asked him to chip in money for the production budget or asked him to help him with a connection. It's silly but I guarantee you that if Arsenio's show is a hit and Eddie needs to sell a movie he'll be right there trying to get on.

One more note forgive my spelling but I really shouldn't say this because I don't know for sure but the rumor back then was arsenio had a very bad coke habit and that is part of the reason why the show was dumped.

I find it crazy how he left and came back and Leno is still on the air. SMH

@3:20 & 7:17 I remember the times Eddie was on Arsenio and the one in particular when Eddie told Arsenio that he (Eddie) doesn't vote. Arsenio told Eddie that he was a House Nigger because he doesn't vote. Eddie looked so uncomfortable on that couch. Another time on the show Arsenio said he remebered when they were doing a film together, Eddie went to his trailer and came back on set hyped as if he had sniffed cocaine. That was another instance Eddie looked uncomfortable on Arseno's show.

After two incidents like that on someone's show, I wouldn't go back either. LOL

So Eddie go on other late night shows , they using him for rating too so what's the difference! You suppose to look out for your people especially if its something positive! Man we so fucked up now . SMDH

@1042 that's all the way true!!!! Ain't nobody checking for Eddie! The current movie goers were newborn when he was hot!

This is just rumors and bloggers trying to start shyt. Eddie Murphy don't like the attention and don't like being in public. How often do you see pictures of him hanging out? That why him and Rocsi are not together anymore. She brought too much attention and stayed in the spotlight. Being on Arsenio Hall show will do just that.

He does talk shows when he has a movie about to drop .

@329 That is so true the sad thing is Eddie will only get his due when he passes. In a lot of the young peoples eyes he is a laughing stock but at one point he was one of the mosst powerfull black men in hollywood.

And the highest paid. he has managed his money well and has one of the top 3 comedy albums ever made. He was the reason there was a def Jam and a Martin Lawarence,Bernie.

That is another deeper story. We as blacks don't give proper respect to trailblazers. I mean Robin williams and others fed up but still get held in high regard. That is cool though because I was there when he owned and had hollywoood jumping.

@9:52PM Exactly! Maybe Arsenio should get some shows under his belt and prove that he doesn't "need" Eddie or any of his big time star friends to pull in an audience. I loved Arsenio years ago but he has fallen off and he's just not funny to me anymore.

Well if Arsenio was capitalizing off of Eddie's fame, he sure got now where so in the grand scheme of things, what does it matter?

Where are these quotes coming from? Who did Arsenio say this to and who did Eddie say this to? We just believe anything they tell us with absolutely no proof whatsoever.

I think Eddie wants Arsenio to prosper without his legendary respect.He probably don't want people to say the show is a success because of him.He is allowing Arsenio to shine without him.This will work out ,True friends conquer all obstacles. Arsenio congratulations! !!! Don't be upset grow from this .You are exceptional and the world needs to see that from you .

Arsenio is a user and a back biter! He is all about himself! Heard he takes pix of womens asses back in the day against their will and gave herpes to Paula Abdul..in Hollywoods Comedy Store back in the day he used to run around they say like a bitch talking about everyone like a dog and riding on the coat tails of other comedians trying to reach celebrity status.Eddie is very wise to finally see the beguiling snake for what he truly is...Arsenio never was a true friend to Eddie or anyone! He did the same thing to Keenan Wayans,Finis Henderson,and Sam Keniston,Im glad Eddie knows to keep his enemys close and hope he never supports the user again!
