BET’s 106 & Park host Rocsi Diaz recently sat down with the New York Post to talk in-depth about her relationship with Eddie Murphy, leaving 106 & Park, and her
nonexistent acting career. It’s hard hard to believe Rocsi and Terrance replaced Free & AJ almost seven years ago. Check out what she had to say below:
On how she met Eddie Murphy:
Terrence J and I were fortunate to have Eddie Murphy on the show for the first time BET ever had him on the network. He’s been in the entertainment business for over 30 years now so having him on the show for the first time, it was pretty amazing. It was a lot of fun too. They did this whole skit with ‘Coming To America’ dancers. They came out and had rose petals going down the stairs and I’ll never forget his face when the curtain came up and he was like, “what’s going on?” It was like the most confusing face he’s ever had. He’s a lot of fun.
She also says that she and Eddie are “just friends.”
During the interview she talked candidly about leaving the TV show that brought her fame and future career plans. She said:
Well, I’m still going out for other hosting opportunities as well. I think that in this day and age of Hollywood and entertainment you kind of have to be a multi hyphenate. I love radio, I love television, hosting, and acting is just a new chapter in my life. So is DJing as well. I think when you see people like Nick Cannon and Jamie Foxx, they just do so much that you have to be able to do other things as well. Acting is one of them. I just finished two films in the last year and I’ve totaled four already.[Acting is] one of those dreams that you never think that would become reality but I just did another movie with Lynn Whitfield and she’s amazing. It’s like I’m doing a movie with Lynn Whitfield, Oh my gosh this really can happen!
I definitely don’t believe that she’s not in a relationship with him or fu**ing for exposure.
Do you think she’s in a relationship with Eddie?
