Stargazing | Eddie Murphy speaks; Bruce Willis and wife expecting

Eddie Murphy

isn’t one to give many interviews. But, he’s got an upcoming gig — hosting next year’s Oscars — and a new comedy, “Tower Heist,” to promote. So, in an extensive interview in the new Rolling Stone, Eddie catches us up on his future plans:

• 

No more family movies for him

. “I don’t have any interest in that right now. There’s really no blueprint, but I’m trying to do some edgy stuff. And I only want to do what I really want to do, otherwise I’m content to sit here and play my guitar all day.”

• 

No “Beverly Hills Cop IV,” either

. “They’re not doing it. What I’m trying to do now is produce a TV show starring Axel Foley’s son, and Axel is the chief of police now in Detroit. I’d do the pilot, show up here and there. None of the movie scripts were right; it was trying to force the premise.”

Daddy Bruce

Congrats to

Bruce Willis

and his wife,

Emma Heming

, who are expecting their first baby. Bruce, 56, and Emma, 33, got married two years ago.

Bruce has three daughters with ex-wife

Demi Moore

, who lately has been fending off rumors that her marriage to

Ashton Kutcher

is on the rocks. Demi and Ashton, married since 2005, have reportedly tried to have a baby of their own.

Grace on the big screen

The Hollywood Reporter says that European producer

Pierre-Ange Le Pogam

has won the rights to a highly sought-after speculative script about

Grace Kelly

’s life as a princess. Not too early to speculate on who might play her.

Reese Witherspoon

perhaps?

Steven falls again Steven Tyler

took a really bad spill in a hotel shower this week while on tour in Paraguay. Flashback to 2009 when the Aeorosmith frontman fell off a stage during a concert in South Dakota.

This time he fell because he was dehydrated after being felled by food poisoning, his spokesman said. According to one report, he received stitches to his face and had emergency dental work.

Darrell’s not-so-funny life Darrell Hammond

racked up 14 seasons on “Saturday Night Live,” but those years, and his childhood, weren’t all fun and games, he reveals in his new memoir.

“When I was 19 was the first time I ever cut myself,” he says. “Over the years it became more habitual. I was never in a mental institution for a long time. I was in psych wards. I was diagnosed with everything from schizophrenia to multiple personality disorder. I was on seven medications at one time soul-killing drugs.”

At SNL he says he used to cut himself backstage and that he was “taken to the psych ward the week I did the (

debates. I believe that was when I was taken away in a straightjacket.”

Chaz out, but now down

Any fan of “Dancing With the Stars” might still be in shell shock over what happened on the show earlier this week. And while we won’t take sides in the

smackdown, Stargazing must say this.

We agree with

Chaz Bono

, who was voted off the show this week, that judge

Bruno Tonioli

’s snide little digs about Chaz’s weight were way out of line.

You could hear the audience collectively gasp Monday night when Bruno told Chaz that he looked like a cute penguin doing the tango in a tuxedo. A few weeks earlier Bruno called him an Ewok. Chaz’s mom lashed out on Twitter after Chaz was eliminated.

Tweeted Cher: “Thank u Carrie Ann 4 your Gentility. You are beautiful inside out! To the Gentleman? I didn’t know who u Were b4 which I guess is a blessing! Going Home is Fine but why insult him b4 he Goes! Maybe Rudeness Flapping Arms take the place of TALENT.”

Said Chaz in a post-elimination interview: “If you’re an overweight woman losing weight, they love you. If you’re an overweight guy getting in shape, they penalize you for it.” And he’s right.

Badly done, Bruno.

Badly done.
