Fu*kin for Films

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Tracey Edmonds recently discussed her wedding coming up with People Magazine. We don’t care about that boring stuff:

“While the wedding planning is a joint effort, Murphy, 46, and Edmonds also plan to collaborate in a more public way soon – on a film that Edmonds is producing for her fiancé.

We’ve got a couple different things with each other we’re working on,” Murphy revealed. One tentative project includes a comedy costarring Chris Tucker. “I have two comedies,” Edmonds explained, adding, “We are actually doing a lot of things.

Well, we guess this is one way to upgrade from BET movies. You must don’t know Tracey if you think Eddie’s tranny date and baggage is going to stop her career game.

    LOL…That woman…is on a serious come-up. This is too funny.

  • brwnbarbie

    If yall consider her roots nappy, then I don’t know what to say. Her roots are nowhere near nappy, Tracey has a very nice grade of hair. Now her hairstyle is kind of big, but nappy roots? Not by a long shot…

    Ugh! I have so many things that I would love to say right bout now but…

    I don’t choose to argue with folks.

    Everybody wants to be an expert.

    Funny though. You name drop but forget to drop yours!

    While I hate some of her contributions, Who’s Your Caddy and College Hill, you have no right to degrade her by suggesting she’s slept with someone for films. She has a degree from Stanford, and has been producing television and films (hello, remember Soul Food?) for years. Get your facts straight and stop insulting Blacks who are actually educated, productive, and successful. It just brings the rest of us down, when our energies are better served enhancing our communities.

    #1 Eddie needs to come out the closet

    #2 Bob Johnson should be banned from anything television/film related

    #3 Tracey IS bangin’ her way up the hollywood chain

  • nuffsaid

    Films like Who’s Your Caddy get made because many black people go see anything with black people in it. Same with BET – everybody posting complaints, but it’s one of the most viewed networks. Hollywood don’t care about you, just money, so hit them in the pocket – stop paying to see this mess!

    …And here come the hateful, but purposeless responses. Okay, you guys blab until your heart’s content, while I go sleep soundly.

  • rob

    Eddy is outta control nowadays.. wonder where is scary spice?!?!?!?



    I agree with you Tonya…Tracey is definitely intelligent and doing her thing…I wouldn’t call her a gold digger because she would be well off regardless…(Eddie’s financial addition doesn’t hurt either though lol)

  • La. Finest

    Imma stick with the positives I like her dress.

  • Chocolate FIYAH!

    She is SUCH an OPPORTUNIST! I wish she & Eddie “I Love Johnny Gill” Murphy would sit the hell down!

  • ZA

    Good for them. I like that she likes to keep the money in the family. She worked with Babyface on some of the productions and now ith future husband Eddie.

  • Marcia

    Tracey’s company made good films before Eddie (Soul Food) and unlike most celebrities, she’s an educated woman (Stanford graduate) and has accomplished a lot. We need to bringing down our people and focus on bigger issues. Anyways, most couples who get married work together. What’s the big deal….

    @I Stay

    I’m inclined to agree with Anon. You yourself said that Who’s Your Caddy was similar to Caddyshack, so Tracy isn’t doing anything groundbreaking or original. There was a lot of hoopla over this “Our Stories Films” company being the first black owned studio,so I do think it’s ironic that Tracy and Co. aren’t doing anything to break from the status quo. All these years, black people have been saying that if we had our own setup that we could do it better, but “Our Stories” isn’t doing it better. If Caddy is any indication, They’re not doing anything but the same stereotypical “Soul Plane” type rehashed garbage that white studios have been doing all along. I Stay, you really ought to rethink your position, because Tracy’s doing “the carbon copied, cookie cutter, no variety” stuff that you just alluded to. If you’re a black man, then Tracy isn’t doing you any favors. “Who’s your Caddy” was put out because Tracy thought that the film would target people like you who thought you wouldn’t be paying to see yourself degraded on screen. Black men make legal money in a lot of ways besides the rap game and they belong to country clubs and they don’t behave that way, even if they are noveau riche. Now, I’m all for black role models and people going to college, but I think people need to stop using Tracy’s degree as a reason why she deserves respect. People keep brining up Soul Food, but what other films is she known for that were even remotely hits. Producers like Tracey aren’t writers. All she has to do is pick a script, and she can’t even seem to do that well because her work isn’t making lots of money or getting lots of respect, even hip-hop/ rapper oriented nonsense which was supposed to bait the “urban” crowd hasn’t been doing big numbers for her company. So what are we supposed to be proud of, exactly? And Clockers, Menace, Boyz n Da Hood were critically aclaimed films in the hood genre category. Was Cady a critically acclaimed comedy, or was it so bad that Tracey didn’t even bother to screen it for critics because she knew what they say? When you’re more famous for the men you’re seen out on the town with than your work, then I should I respect you?

    After reading some of the comments made, I find myself wondering if we take ourselves too seriously. Why should every movie produced or directed by people of color have a strong political statement or serious content? All movies are not meant for this purpose. Some movies are merely for entertainment purposes only! Now does that mean that we are going to find the subject matter funny? No. Does this mean that some may find the subject matter offensive…maybe, but that is the beauty of free will. If you don’t like it…don’t pay to see it. It is important that producers and directors of color make as many movies as possible to open the doors for others to have the same opportunity. When this is done there is a diverse selection of movies to see and more of a selection for audiences to chose from.

  • Not You

    Tracey Edmonds hasn’t done anything decent since Soul Food. And, she probably didn’t do anything on that film, just got her name slapped on it. Look how the rest of her stuff has turned out. From College Hill to Who’s Your Caddy–hot garbage!!!!

    I’m scared of the ‘comedies’ she’s working on. Maybe I should go ahead and alert the NAACP.

  • Tonya

    Anonymous, no need for name calling. Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. It’s fine that you don’t agree. It’s not quite that serious. It’s all food for thought. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
