This just seems RIGHT.
People reported this morning that Eddie Murphy will take part in SNL’s 40th anniversary special on Feb. 15, in what will be his first appearance on the show in more than 30 years!
The comedian, 53, first revealed the news in a phone interview with News One Now (via People):
“It just never worked out where the timing was right for me to do it,” he said of his three-decade absence. “They’re having a 40th anniversary … I’m going to that. And that will be the first time I’ve been back since I left.”
Murphy’s last SNL appearance was on Dec. 15, 1984, as host, only 10 months after his final show as a cast member. He joined the show in 1981 at age 19, and is the second-youngest performer in in SNL history. It only makes sense that he should make room in his schedule, to honor his roots!
Hopefully, he’ll do Gumby, Buckwheat or Mr. Robinson. But hey, I’ll settle for that Donkey from Shrek.

You can’t keep Farrah Abraham off of reality television!
Despite her costars’ efforts to keep her off their show, Abraham is returning to the MTV series that got her started, Teen Mom, Us Weekly reveals. The author and adult film star, 23, spoke with Us Weekly about her decision to rejoin the cast for the spinoff series Teen Mom OG (OG stands for “original girls”). Here’s a snippet!
On how she was originally NOT going to be a part of Teen Mom OG: “I think they were more or less saying that there was more to my story that they really felt was missing from the Teen Mom show, and I totally agree with them,” she said. “I understand their point of view, and it was a funny situation to be in.”
On the original cast: “I’m just hoping that [the cast is] better off, and they’re doing well because I know personally I’m providing for my daughter, making my future as best as I can as well,” she said.
On why Abraham decided to sign up for Teen Mom: “I think it was important because I mean just weighing out the options and my future for my daughter,” the current Austin, Texas resident said. “I think Teen Mom is important for the children and their futures. And I think it holds some good opportunities for Sophia and her future.”
So will she be changing her behavior (porn, sex toys, etc.) for the show: “I’m not doing anything differently that I would not do when the cameras are there or not there,” she said. “I mean, I don’t know if it really benefits me to be on TV because I was most successful in my career when I was away from Teen Mom. So if it benefits me then that’s randomly benefitting. I’m more or less looking at it to benefit Sophia.”

Here’s adorable Malin Akerman and with her even more adorable son Sebastian feeding the pigeons while out today in Los Feliz, California.
The pair used crumbs from a coffee shop pastry (Hey, that’s GOOD pastry!) to feed the hungry pigeons, and had a lovely time of it. Now I know- when I get hungry, head to Los Feliz and look for a blond woman, a blond kid, and a bag of tasty crumblins.
