Take on the hardest working man in show business

Antonio Cromartie called Eddie Murphy today and told him that it was time to get himself fixed, because apparently there isn't a cornerback (of piece of latex) in the league who can cover him.  Maybe Eddie just loves kids or maybe he is just to bif for magnums or maybe he just loves child support but when I read that he just had his ninth kid, I just scratched my head. 

When I was a kid, my buddies and I would drive to Alpine and drive past Eddie Murphy mansion, a house that was so big you had to drive around the block to see the entire front and then one day he sold it to Alicia Keys.   We always assumed that he had gotten tired of it and wanted something new but maybe the truth was that it wasn't big which for his growing family.  

This is Murphy's ninth child. The 55-year-old is dad to Eric, 26 (with Paulette McNeely) Christian, 25, (with Tamara Hood Johnson), Bria, 26, Miles, 23, Shayne, 21, Zola, 16, and Bella, 14 (with his ex-wife Nicole Mitchell) and Angel, 9, with Spice Girl Melanie "Mel B" Brown.

What is more (or maybe less) impressive is not the sheer quantity but how goddamn busy Eddie Murphy was between 1989 and 1994. Granted this probably also coincides with the height of his popularity, so he was probably getting delirious with a ton of chicks and apparently doing it raw basically every Saturday Night live in New York and then running over to get busy in Beverly Hills too. 

I wonder if when he was getting called weekly from random chicks if he tried to get some some schmuck to trade places with him or put on some fat man disguise to avoid it becoming public news in which case he may have a few other ones we don't know about.   Either way it would have been great to hear him get chewed out about his infidelity by James Earl Jones
