Eddie Murphy to Reprise Axel Foley Role in New 'Beverly Hills Cop

"The studio has enlisted Eddie Murphy to reprise his role as Axel Foley, and they've set ... Looking forward to the new Beverly Hills Cop Movie" Beverly Hills Cop IV Resurrected ... Again
Eddie Murphy’s iconic Beverly Hills Cop may be skipping the small screen and heading straight to the theaters.

The Beverly Hills Cop revival that was supposed to happen on television is now heading to the big screen instead. After reviving the character of Axel Foley for a pilot that never made it to series, Eddie Murphy is apparently interested once again in a fourth Beverly Hills Cop movie.

Paramount has decided to back Murphy’s return as Axel Foley in Beverly Hills Cop IV, which would be written by Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec. The two were also the screenwriters behind big-name movies like Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remake.

This is not the first time we've heard talks about a new Beverly Hills Cop movie in the 21st century. Back in…

Loretta Lynn's Eldest Daughter Dies at 64

Betty Sue Lynn was the first of six children for the country music legend.
A family representative says Betty Sue Lynn, the oldest daughter of country singer Loretta Lynn, has died. She was 64.

According to the statement from the family, Lynn died Monday from complications of emphysema in Waverly, Tenn., near her mother's ranch in Hurricane Mills.

Loretta Lynn, who has six children, was born in the coalfields of eastern Kentucky and chronicled her life in an autobiography and song, both titled "Coal Miner's Daughter."

Betty Sue is the second of Loretta’s children to precede her in death. In 1984, son Jack Benny Lynn (aged 34) drowned on the family's property. In 1996, her husband of 48 years, “Doolittle” Lynn, passed away from diabetes.
Betty Sue Lynn is survived by two daughters, Lynn Markworth and Audrey Dryer, and five grandchildren.

Loretta Lynn, known as the “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” turned 81 in April, she and her late husband had six children together.


The most talked about lunch in the Nation's Capital

Hillary dashes into White House for lunch with ObamaIn what has become the most talked about lunch in the nation's capital, President Obama and Hillary Clinton dined privately at the White House Monday (July 29). Primary topic reportedly on their agenda.... “It’s largely friendship that’s on the agenda for the lunch today,” said Josh Earnest, the deputy press secretary. “So it’s not a working lunch as much as it is an opportunity for the two who saw each other on a pretty frequent basis over the course of the last four years to get a chance to catch up.”

From the AP on the Obama-Clinton lunch:

While it's not the first time the pair have seen each other since Clinton left the administration earlier this year, each of their get-together's are closely analyzed. That's because Clinton is considered a leading contender to replace Obama, though she hasn't said whether she'll launch another presidential campaign. The president is also being watched for signs of who he wil…

First Look at Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan in 'Lee Daniels' The Butler' (VIDEO)

Jane Fonda may be a liberal activist, but her politics didn't figure into her decision to take on the role of Nancy Reagan in "Lee Daniels' The Butler."

A new clip from the movie shows Fonda's First Lady talking to White House butler Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker). Reagan invites him to a state dinner, but "not as a butler, Cecil -- as a guest."

In a sound bite following the clip, Fonda addresses her controversial casting.

"The idea that I could play Nancy Reagan was just too much to resist," she says.

"I don't think that whatever differences there might be in our politics really matters."

"Lee Daniels' The Butler" features an all-star cast including;

Oprah Winfrey, Cuba Gooding Jr.,Terrence Howard, Robin Williams, Alan Rickman, Melissa Leo, Minka Kelly, John Cusack, James Marsden,  Mariah Carey.

Rev. Al Sharpton, the 58-year old civil rights icon who marched with Martin Luther King, Jr, says that he is in fact dating Aisha McShaw, a 35-year-old stylist from Westchester, New York.

The two have been seen together arm-and-arm at various recent events. Most recently, the two were spotted at the Black-Tie White House Correspondents Dinner.

This is the first relationship that Sharpton has made public since he separated from his wife, Kathy Lee Jordan, in 2004 after 24 years of marriage. Although legally separated, the two have not yet officially divorced. They also have two adult daughters together, Dominique and Ashley.

She said it also includes revelations about Sharpton’s private life including "dating younger and older women."

Celebrities Lend Their Support To National Action Network

‬July 20th, 2013 Atlanta, Georgia-

From coast to coast, people have been out all Saturday afternoon to join the National Action Network’s Justice for Trayvon” National Action Day of Vigils. 
The vigils, held at noon, went from coast to coast and were held to press the federal government to charge George Zimmerman with civil charges in the death of 17 year old Trayvon Martin.

Trayvon Martin was shot dead over a year ago by Zimmerman, who claimed he acted in self-defense. The prosecution argued that Zimmerman was guilty of second-degree murder, stating that he racially profiled the unarmed teen and assumed he was a criminal when he saw him walking through a gated community in Sanford, Florida. They further claimed that Zimmerman tracked the teenager down and started the fight that led to the shooting. 
On July 13, Zimmerman, whose voter registration record listed him as Hispanic, was acquitted of all charges relating to the fatal shooting of the black teen by a panel of six women juro…
