In a debate about “women in relationships” on the “Bethenny Show,” VH1’s “Hollywood Exes” star Nicole Murphy debated “Tough Love” host Steve Ward on several topics.
Ward said men won’t date “obese” women period and looks matter more than anything when choosing a mate, but Nicole Murphy disagreed.
When debating the question of whether men should love their women a little more than their women love them back in a relationship, Nicole Murphy opened up about her current relationship to fiance Michael Strahan, a retired NFL star turned talk show host.
In his first major interview since replacing Regis Philbin on Kelly Ripa’s morning show, former NFL star Michael Strahan sat down with HBO’s “Real Sports” host Bryant Gumbel to discuss rumors about him that circulated following his bitter divorce from ex-wife Jean Muggli in 2006.
Strahan told Bryant Gumbel:
The former NFL New York Giants football star popped the question to Nicole Murphy while vacationing in the Bahamas.
Murphy, ex-wife of actor Eddie Murphy, accepted Strahan’s canary yellow and white diamond ring. Strahan, who has four children from his previous marriage to Jean Strahan, says he and Murphy have a great relationship.
Strahan said that he and Murphy, who has five children with her ex ,actor Eddie Murphy, would not be expanding their brood. “There aren’t any plans for kids …We’ve got nine between us already,” said the father of four.
