Re: Nia Long

I have always liked Nia Long going back as far as her role as Lisa in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, plus the fact she is absolutely stunning! Take a peep at the interview below where she discusses motherhood, future ambitions etc.

Eddies new role.

So it seems Mr Murphy is set to play the role of his idol the late Richard Pryor in a new biopic- Richard Pryor: Is it something I said. These biopics are really been churned out fast, Cadillac records (Etta James), Notorious and Aaliyah (still in the making). The man behind the writing is Bill Condon the same guy who directed Murphy in Dream Girls and you’ve got to give it to him Eddie was funny! The character of James Early suited him down to a tee. These are the kind of roles the Murph man should be aiming for. Though I did watch Meet Dave recently and found it extremely funny due to the silliness of the film but I often find it’s the stupid things that make me laugh oh well. It will be interesting to see how Murphy tackles the issues of alcohol and drug addiction, broken marriages and illness but I don’t doubt that he will pull it off. This should be a good film to watch and may put Eddie back into the lime light for the right reasons. My top five Eddie Murphy films are: Delirious, Coming to America, The Golden Child, Boomerang and Raw.

Richard Branson

I have a new admiration for Richard Branson, after watching him on the Piers Morgan show yesterday. I always knew that Branson was ambitious but the age in which he started his business is courageous. To have your first million by your early twenties is a big achievement. What I like about Richard is that he projects a warm, humble attitude you can’t go wrong with a little humility. He has not let his short comings hold him back- being dyslexic, coming close too loosing his business several times and a run in with the police to name a few. His attitude is that you can do anything you set your mind too! If only we would all adopt this mind set we could achieve so much. I don’t think Pierce was the best candidate to conduct the interview but overall it gave me a brief insight into his life, it seems I’m going to have to read his autobiography now.
