: MediaTakeOut.com is hearing whispers that Tracy Edmonds has officially moved on from Eddie Murphy and has started dating celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito. In case you forgot who he is - Rocco was that chef that was acting like a dang fool on the NBC reality television show The Restaurant.
Not sure what to make of this couple. But hey, he seems to be heterosexual. So that's a step in the right direction for Tracy.
Good for her! She can't sit around and wait for Black Mr. Right. If a guy comes her way and treats her good she should go for it. I don't know why she wasted time with that Murphy Clown. AfterHe couldn't make things work with his wife, and dissed Scarey.
greyeyedchyck just hit the add comment button 1 time or get off dat dial-up connection one of the two....u always "overdoin" it.
Tracey is doin anything to stay in the gossip column...just go back to Babyface playgurl...i'm tired of readin bout u!
I have no issue whatsoever with interracial romance/dating but its interesting that there are no comments from women here hating on her for being with a white man....No comments about how she needs to be with someone who looks like her daddy...No comments about how she thinks she's too good for black men....So hypocritical because when its a black man/other race woman those comments are out in full force...
And some of you need to stop with the "these black men don't do right" garbage.....People need to be responsible for they people they choose tp be with...A blind, deaf and dumb woman could see Eddie Murphy for the trainwreck he was, but she got with him anyway because she wanted to keep her face in the media.
She seems like a woman who needs to take some time and chill and get her own head together instead of playing musical partners.
PEOPLE ITS JUST LIKE HER MARRIAGE TO EDDIE-PURE PUBLICITY STUNT!
HE HAS NO CAREER NOW THAT HE LOST HIS RESURAUNT AND HIS SHOW (It used to come on about 2 years ago) and she OBVIOUSLY has nothing but that face and body to keep her in the public eye...YOU PUT THE TWO AND TWO TOGETHER!!
PREDICTION FOR THIS COUPLE: THEY WILL BE SPLITTSVILLE IN ABOUT A WEEK...
what's going on with this woman lately??????as beautiful as she is...all this slutting around isn't a good look...seems like ever simce she divorced babyface..all hell broke lose!....her, eddie murphy & many others need to get it together!!....some of these hollywood celebs get more passed around than god knows what& the thing is that there's a whole lot of babrebacking going on...geesh!
MTO...how do you know they're a couple...she took a picture with a man...is that a clear indication that they are a couple?...Do you know how old the photo is?...it could be a post babyface pre Eddie photo...you can't be too certain...
DAM SHE JUST GOT TO HAVE A MAN
DIDNT U JUST GET A DIVORCE NO NO DIDNT
U AND EDDIE MURPHY JUST GET MARRIED NO
NO SIT DOWN AND RAISE THEM DAM KIDS
AND LET DA COOCH REST AWHILE DAM ITS LIKE
A MARATHON OF WHO CAN GET THE MOST MEN.
"THIS CHICK IS REALLY GETTING AROUND"...with taking pictures!!! We don't have any proof that she's dating any of these dudes. And as far as 50 cent is concerned, I would sincerely hope that Vivica is the only one dumb enough to go that route. (Ciara is a child so she doesnt count)
I would like to say to the guy esotericdredz, Black/coloured women do not complain about black/coloured men going out with other races of women because they are use to it. Heck they now expect it. They may say expected but most always comment on how cute the kids are or they make a nice couple. Look at Seal and Heidi Klum, no women said anything about that in a bad light. Some guy on there made a comment about Forest and his wife in a negative light. Why because Forest is married to a black woman? I am not understanding the disrespect or the intense hatred a black man has for his own woman that shows on media takeout. It is sad and sinful because without your woman you would not be here. Last time I check the black woman has the black man not the other way aorund. Black woman suffered during slavery too and put her self second to the man which was the biggest mistake because she should have let him be a man. Maybe then would he in this day and age respect her which he does not. I truly believe until the black woman looks at herself as a woman and not as a colour and let the man stand alone to be a man...only then will she get the respect that is due her. It is no good to let anyone especially the same colour as you (wanting to see you alone and impoverish with kids) walk all over you and expect respect is a daydream. Most nasty comments come from black men if you look on any website. I went on a website where the black lady was dating an asian guy and black men wrote in so many nasty disgusting comments it was sickening. They even said it was gross that the man wanted a black woman. Admitting self-hatred is hard but that is the only way you can even hope to get better. I can not understand any of this comments even why the heck they won't take care of their kids when they are black...the world thinks his familiy skills is next to none because of this so stop complaining and learn to be a man. Stay out of the women's business and get into men's business. It isn't some trophy from the slave master's home..you actually need to learn to make a home for anyone regardless of skin colour but especially your own skin colour because at first you were made not to but now you have the chance to do it you run from it. Analyze that one.
All I have to say is that I lost a tremendous amout of respect for Tracey. At first I thought Babyface was a damn fool but it looks like it's the other way around. AND WHERE ARE HER KIDS in all of this....she is not setting a great example for them. She is really acting like a bonafide ho fo real. She really needs to sit her azz down somewhere and pronto!
I really don't see her in the same way as when she was married to Babyface. It's like now...who is she??
But anyways...although there's no proof in this picture that she's dating the chef, she is single now. Of course she's going to date around. Ya'll expect her to marry her 2nd husband before the ink even dries on her divorce papers??
they are just friends. i know this for a fact because Rocco asked one of my girlfriends to go to the Oscars but she couldn't...She is an entertainment reporter and had to work at the Oscars. They share a publicist and both needed a date- so the publicist set it up.
That's how it really works in Hollyweird folks.
Tracy go find you a professional therapist and lay down on the couch express your feelings.
Then have that professional therapist help guide you find your self-respect, esteem,dignity and morale values.
Tracy's coming off like a ho now. I mean she's playing musical dycks and if she'e not careful she might end up with something. STD's don't discriminate and they don't care how much money you have. It's not a good look for her and I'm starting to lose a little respect for her. I questioned her motives when she went from Babyface to Eddie. But then again, Babyface has always seemed a little soft to me and he always so emotional when singing. Maybe she wanted MORE of a man. Well Eddie certainly wasn't it. Now this guy who's handsome but at the same time appears a little soft. Maybe these are the types of guys that she's attracted to but it's a dangerous game (sleeping around). Tracy had better recognize.
Before ya'll jump on me, this is just my OPINION to everyone who questions why black women give so much heat to black men dating outside their race but not to black women when they do the same:
I think the reason most black women take issue with black men dating outside their race is b/c it's been going on for soooooo long. Some black men even go through the trouble of downing black women in the process just to justify why he's dating an "other". I.E...black women have too much attitude, no class, ghetto, etc.
Also, for so long...a black man will get a little money in his pocket, and instead of helping bring a sista up, he'll run out the first chance he gets and picks up a white trophy wife b/c he sees them as being more classy and his ticket into being accepted. Just look at the number of black male celebs and athletes out here who are married to an "other". I can't even think of how many (there's some, but not many) famous black women are married to one themselves.
It's just baffeling how many black men are steady looking for something "exotic" or different, not out of curiosity, but b/c he perceives it as being better. I think that's what black women have a problem with.
When it's a black woman dating outside her race, she doesn't catch as much heat from other black women b/c it's like, "dang...someone out there still wants us." There was an episode of Tyra where she had a variety of 8 men (2 each of black, white, hispanic, and asian) who were sharing their views about 4 women of different races (black, hispanic, white, and asian) regarding sex, dating, and relationships. There was 1 part in the show where the men were asked to stand behind their fantasy woman...(((NO ONE))) stood behind the beautiful black sista...NOT EVEN THE 2 BLACK MEN WHO WERE A PART OF THE GROUP!!!!!! 1 black stood behind the white woman and the other was behind the hispanic. Then when asked to stand behind the woman they would married, 1 of the black men came and stood behind the black woman. None of the other races saw the black woman as a fantasy or as someone they would married...and she was VERY beautiful. And that's the feeling most black women get when they see a black man outside their race. So when an “other” steps to us, it’s like…“Ok…we’re still wanted.”
I'm not saying that all black men are like that nor am I bashing them...just giving my opinion of why I think it's so one-sided sometimes when it comes to interracial dating. I'm all for interracial dating and would do it myself if I found someone I was attracted to, b/c you never know what you could be missing out on when you discriminate. But I take issue when people down their own or view them as “less than” to justify why they're dating outside their race.
I guess when u look like that you can do a lot. I don't wanna hate but this is how people who are percieved by hollywood and the general masses as "really beautiful" this is how they do. On to the next.
Well if this is true, boy did momma raise a good whore. This woman is an opportunist, point blank. If these guys don't see that by now then they have no one else to blame but themselves. It's like getting signed to record deal with Sean Combs, you know he's going to screw you, just like you know this golddigging whore is after your money. I have no problem with him being white, if my mother had a problem with that I wouldn't be here.
I have to take a minute to respond to the women who feel the need to down black men in order to support this goldigging whore's choice of man.
First: I'm biracial myself, so I have no problems with any black woman dating a man who is not black.
Second: Why does her dating this white man be a referendum on why black women can't find black Mr. Right? Yet when a black man feel the need to down black women to justify his white choice, many of you cry injustice or hate...
Third: Were all of you a fly on the wall during the Murphy/Edmonds relationship? For all of you who are quick to blame Eddie please remember this woman was married to Babyface and that didn't work out. So who are we to say Eddie, not Tracey, was the problem? Fact is, none of you know nor do I.
The level of hypocrisy amongst posters on this site is really discouraging at times. You rail against behaviors that you exhibit in your own posts.
I know dat's white, I mean right, Tracey! If all black women stopped acting like they're afraid of "betraying our race" they'd be much happier!
We were slaves on that plantation right along side our black men and we WILL NEVER get the respect from them that another race would so willingly give us.
@ T007009, Either you haven't been coming to this site for long or you haven't been paying attention. That Seal/Heidi thread was the exception to the rule....MTO purposely posts black male/other race couples just to incite nasty comments.....Like the Taye Diggs post where they stated "Why did he marry her?" There is nothing but black man bashing around here, and its done by the same people who turn around and praise black women for doing the same thing.
My issue is NOT with anyone who chooses to date interracially. If the one for you is of another race, then do you and be happy. My issue is with those who feel the need to throw their own under the bus to justify their choice. Look at these comments.....Brutally Honest broke it down....Why can't a sista date a white man without turning around and dogging brothers out in the process? Why does there always have to be some comment about black men being no good anyway or unavailable? THAT my friend, is self hate...disrespecting your own to justify going elsewhere....And you see women around here doing it much more than men.
I feel where you are coming from....I think the issues with interracial dating are overplayed in the media as a way to divide us further....For all the heated debate, well over 90% of black men and women marry within the race. People may date or kick it with other races but we still overwhelmingly marry each other. This is even true of athletes and celebrities...The media always pushes the interracial couples into the spotlight but if you look across sports leagues and across the board, most black men and women are married in the race. I think we have to be careful not to unnecessarily divide over something like this.
When someone dates outside their race, yet remains respectful and true to his heritage, then I have no issue at all with it.
Just because MTO said she gets around doesn't mean it's true. Damn, some of you are gulliable. But whatever, she does seem fake to me, I don't knw her personally. But something about her just screams fake. Anways NEXT Freddie. What does she do? She just married Babyface and Eddie. Is that really a acomplishment? NEXT!
Hey if the NBA and most black men in hollywood date snowflakes its pretty much not many successful rich black men left for her to date. And she dates only rich men. So try something new why not. If he treatin her right do you Trace.
This woman can't find a str8 man to save her life! This dude is gay--he's dating one of the guys from "Queer Eye". She's a professional date-for-hire for the Downlow in Hollywood. If youre gay and want an attractive cover--call Tracy! i hope theyre paying her well.
Black women need to stop with all the hype that when a white guy is messing with them, that's when they gonna be treated right. And all a sudden they... black men can't do s#it right talk. Of course you're going to experience something new. We black men are different from other races, not because we have bad intentions, but because we came in two DIFFERENT CULTURES.
TOO MANY BLACK GOLD DIGGERS ARE USING THE 'BLACK MEN AINT $#IT EXCUSES'
And that's black folks problem. We're always coming up with some sorry excuses why we're putting each other down. The mentality that EVERY WHITE GUY IS A SAVIOR IS WHAT'S KILLING US, (OOOH LOOK @ ME I'M DATING A WHITE BOY, I'M SET FOR LIFE, LOL). Just like every black man who had a chance and F#*ed up, and then they're blaming the whites. And waiting for a hand out.
Most young sistas nowadays go for the THUGS, and when the guys screw them, they want to cry brothas are no good. I'm an educated young brotha with many goals, independent, good credits (white boys-quality, lol) but I'VE SEEN BEAUTIFUL SISTAS DISS ME AND TALK TO A GUY THAT HAS NOTHING TO OFFER. So, you all need to stop messing with busters and stop this non sense.
Brutally Honest, Let me Git With You For A Hot Minute........................
First of all black men don't need to down us to justify his choice of white women, cause ya'll been downing us from DAY 1!! You reference to her (a woman u don't even know) as a whore is my case in point! Second, she's a grown azz woman and if she wants to go outside the color line that's her dayum business. Who are you to judge?
BTW - Ya momma raised a DAYUM FOOL! Now git the hell on...............CHUMP!
why is it that sistahs give titles to black men as being gay but when a black chik dates or marries or have kids by a white man He's all of a sudden considered a Real Man or Heterosexual? then you all said, when she went to a white dude that shes in the "RIGHT" direction?
