Eddie Murphy’s ex, Nicole Murphy, has publicly apologized for kissing famed film producer Antoine Fuqua poolside at a hotel in Italy. Antoine is the husband of actress Lela Rochon, and they’ve been married for 20 years. Paparazzi caught Nicole and Antoine’s lip lock on camera a couple months ago, and it really put Nicole on the spot. Well today, she finally faced the music. Sitting down with Wendy Williams, she offered a public apology for her behavior… kinda.
Her first instinct was to roll her eyes and let out the infamous “phfff” sound, but Wendy quickly adjusted that attitude and forced her to take what she was about to say seriously. We all know Wendy Williams still has fresh wounds from a cheating home-wrecker and a lying ex-husband, so it’s really a suprise that Wendy would have her on at all.
Nicole told the crowd… “It was a moment where I should’ve thought more into the situation, and made better judgements, so it’s something that I apologize for.” Some have pointed out there’s really no mention of her being wrong in that statement, and it sorta sounds like she wishes she just didn’t get caught so clearly on camera.
She also tried to play down the kiss as little more than a peck, but later went on to say this about that same kiss… “It was in the heat of the moment. It should not have happened, I regret it.” So which is it? Was it a kiss in “heat,” or was it a little peck? Not leaving it at that, Nicole also thought it good to mention that she thought Lela and Antoine’s marriage was on the rocks.
As for the trip, Nicole called it just a business trip… Alone, in Italy, kissing a married man by poolside… okay. To be fair, why is no one talking about Antoine’s part in all this? Hello… he’s the married one. If Nicole has anymore to say, we’ll be sure to bring it to you. Until the next time it drips…
