Scary Spice Isn’t Playin’


I’m going to miss “Fortuna Daphne Bay”. Mel B. is making sure everyone knows that Eddie Murphy is her (alleged) babydaddy by giving her new daughter his last name . She should just superglue the VHS box for “Raw” in the kid’s hand. Ok, that’s not as easy and painless as just giving the kid the name “Murphy” but it’s definitely a conversation starter and maybe it can get you handicap plates.

Ex-girlfriend Melanie Brown announced Tuesday that she has given her newborn daughter Murphy’s surname, further upping the ante in the former couple’s ongoing paternity spat.

In a statement, Brown, 31, explained the genesis of Angel Iris Murphy Brown’s moniker:

“Angel, as she was my little angel through my pregnancy. Iris, as it’s my grandma’s name. Murphy, because he’s the dad. And Brown, because I’m the mum!”

Originally she had named the kid “Fortuna Daphne Bay” which I feel is much hotter but doesn’t have quite the hovering dread for Eddie Murphy in it. I’d make a Murphy Brown joke but I think Candice Bergen is hot and I’m not going to entangle her in this mess.
