: MediaTakeOut.com received the following quote, which was posted online by Richard Pryor's wife Jennifer. Apparently Mike Epps did something to her:
He got his ass so fired from me and Richard Pryor project and now he is trying to go around talking sh*t, saying he's doing the Richard Pryor project...motherf*cker better watch his punk, country ass...it's gonna get royally sued if he wants to play this game!
My lawyers are ready and waiting!!!
He said at Richard's funeral: "I don't know Richard..."
That was the only honest moment and thing that came out of this punkass's mouth...he doesn't have a clue who Richard is or was, never will....
Richard didn't like you...you knew it too. I tried to make you feel better..."oh yeah, he likes you Mike" but he couldn't stand your fake ass...your step and fetch it, higher than a kite, insincere sh*t you'd come up with...nothing original ever...Richard would look right through you and spot you for the country ass no talent bitch you are...
He's so pissed at me he can't see straight...yeah Mike...remember what you said to me:
"IT'S SO HARD TO LISTEN TO YOU TALK ABOUT RICHARD BECAUSE YOU'RE A WHITE WOMAN..."
That right there, says it all....youse nothing but a damn racist who doesn't have a clue who Richard is, what he stands for: you're just a wannabe cunt who has a small brain and a tin heart...
He's so desperate, ain't nothin and I mean nothin goin on in that poor bitches' career except now he's trying to catch a ride on Richard's coattails...Motherf*cker is a rotten unf*cking funny comic and as an actor is a sad imitation of
Ain't got no chops, no where...
And now the motherf*cker hanging on tight to what might have been if God has given him any part of any talent...
I don't believe this one. I would only HOPE she has more class as a grown woman then to say anything like that. That sounds like something a hood chick at the age of 20 who thinks she runs the world would say. Now on Mike Epps...that's my boy! I wish they would've gave him that role and break he needs. I think he would've done a great job! They did have someone playing Richard Pryor that wasn't who I thought was a good choice...was it Eddie Murphy? I think Eddie's at the age were someone should be playing him. We'll see how it goes...I really don't see an icon playing an icon? SMH
Unfortunately, Mike is not that funny. Why he keeps coming back to Nashville,I don't know. He does not have control over his comedy, he stutters too much and hesitates. You can't do that and be a good comedian. I just hate that she had to curse him out that way. It's not ladylike.
Mike Epps "fans" boycotting wouldn't do a darn thing...LOL. Richard Pryor is vastly more liked and revered that lil ole nobody Mike Epps.
And yes I do think producers would listen to Pryor's wife and the partial owner of his estate.
He is funny. I wouldn't go as far as to say he was the best but their are some opinnions that are strictly hate motivated this sounds like one of them. Oh and she needs to be more lady like I know you richards wife and think you can say what you want but something are best kept to yourself. especially if you don't want any publicity for Mike which you are doin. Cuz Now I wanna know what Project they are talkin bout. If not Epps then who plays Richard? (Not that Epps does the best Richard impersonations it is just who would play the part?
She's telling the truth. Mike Epps isn't funny. Basically he's just annoying. He goes in the category with people like Kevin Hart, David Allen Grier, Jack Black, and Ced The Entertainer Movies. These people do not make me laugh at all.
Safari! those ppl have been in the entertainment biz for a few decades now. So I guess they means you are the minority vote. Which means your vote don't count cause the majority holds these comics up. Not you ppl who think they know what funny is. Just cause you didn't laugh doesn't make it not funny. you may not have a sense of humor.
These comics that your call not funny are funny because they are animated. Because of their characters the come up with. it is because of their facial expressions and little skits they come up with. Dave chapelle was one of the funniest guys I know. But his stand-up is lacking. His skit comedy was on point. Mike Epps is a fool and that is what makes him funny.
She got Mike Epps fucked up.lol,naw 4real she real disrespectful and she got a foul mouth she should of kept that to her self,and for the record mike is funny as hell,poor lady,she get my sympathy cause of her husband but she need to watch her mouth...its no reason to be that mad at mike epps,she do got jungle fever she was prolly tryna get sum and Mike was like "Hell naw!" and now she pissed off.
i don't believe it just because people are reallu private about feelings towards close people that die and she sound like she ghetto not her at all
Sorry, but I do believe she said this. Besides, who's more ghetto than white folk? Yes, I said it. Other races are often criticized for the same behavior which whites have displayed for centuries. Better ask somebody!
SHE IS 100% RIGHT! Now this being mediatakeout, some people will jump on the racial dynamic and throw a hissy fit, but she spoke the truth. Mike Epps is one of the corniest comedians out there. He is not the LEAST bit funny, never has been. His schtick has no imagination whatsoever. I was LOL @ "Black Pauly Shore" because that about sums it up.
Richard was intelligent and introspective as a comedian. He and George Carlin are the best ever. Mike Epps isn't even close to being in his class.
Her old ass must still be smoking crack and drinking talking like that! If Mike don't play Richard then who else they got in mind for the part? I think he the one personally? If Richard Pryor hadn't been all f.u.c.k.e.d up in the end,and of sound mind and body and not secluded by people like her he would have HAND PICKED Mike,taken Mike under his wing and coached him personally to play his life story. Please! She trippin Richard & Mike would have been BFF's who don't like Epps?? She better think "MONEY" Mike will make that FILM HOTTER THAN IT WILL BE WITHOUT HIM! & RICHARD WAS OURS!! 4U2.COM
this does not sound like something his wife would say but get a person angry enough no telling what might be said! as for richard and epps none of the two are funny to me!richard cussed too much and epps... he's not funny at all!
A. If Mike did say that "white woman" comment, that was HELLA disrespectful. How are you going to say that to the man's wife? Like he knows Richard better than is own wife. I would've cursed his ass out too.
B. Mike Epps has never ever been funny. I mean, EVER.
Why are some of you finding it hard to believe that Richard Pryor's wife could have possibly written this? Some of you had the nerve to say, "Because white people don't talk like this!" Smh! Now I'm not saying she did, but I don't put anything past anyone.
I never liked her. They divorced years before he got sick. She didn't get back into his life until after he got sick. You could say oh that's great of her but she didn't treat him well IMO. I remember cringing when she would talk about him in his face when he was unable to talk. This is probably what Mike meant by "It's so hard to listen to you talk about Richard because you're a white woman". Probably because she would talk nasty about him while he was sitting there unable to defend himself. I think she got back with him to get his money and humiliate him.
Hey, it's mean in the dirty south and if you ever disrespect it, we will clean out ya dirty mouth. so leave mike epps a** alone and let the boy breath. damn, can't the boy make his paper in peace witout folks hatin'
go to www.petitiononline.com/qlty3022
TRIPLESIXCHARTER>>>>Yeah, because we know dem white folks be perfect. Dey can't do stuff like dat. Only us'n colored folks act ghetto. F*ck outta here w/that crap.
The reason I don't believe it is not becuase the bytch is white, but because I've seen interviews with her and she just SEEMS to be a bit more classy than this bullsh*t MTO posted today, but h*ll, I don't know the broad, so maybe she did say it.
@Nautysgirl O.K I'm gonna wrap my mind around that
possibility I do like Marlon and just maybe he can go there as an actor and pull it off, from Richards messed up childhood to his battle with drugs and beyond. WE SHALL SEE!
I wish I couldn't believe you slaves, but I can. Up here defending this pale bitch! Trying to talk sideways just because she fulfilled her mandingo fetish! She probably couldn't wait for Pryor to kick the bucket and spend his loot! Mike isn't my top comedian either but he ain't that bad! Some of you slaves will kill to protect your massa! U coons make me sick! Sad, sad, sad.
Her crusty white ass needs to STFU.
Just because you were sucking some black man's peanuts doesn't mean your black.
And when she speaks she sounds like a damn fool.
If Richard didn't like dude, according to her, and played like he did, then how is she calling dude fake. Obviously it was her and Pryor who are fake if they lead dude on like he was in good favor.
Sometimes people need to shut the hell up.
Mike Epps has NEVER been funny! And thats not hate it's the absolute truth. However, this gold digging whore is outta line for getting at him like that. Especially when she's nothing more than a coat tail riding fan herself.
the issue is she's trying to get paid off her own pryor movie, which has a white director, white producer, she wrote the script and first eddie and now marlon wayans is starring. pryor's daughter rain has her own movie coming and epps will be pryor in that one. thats why she is trying to trash him
Friday and Next Friday were the ONLY somewhat funny movies Mike Epps ever appeared in. All of the others were flops that were on dvd 2 wks after premiering in theaters. He may have some funny moments but only the mentally immature and undeveloped think that Mike Epps is funny.
@MrsSeely I get what ur saying but I read Rain Pryor (his daughter) autobiographry and from what I get he (Richard Pryor) was a piece of WORK! I heard he drove ALL of his women insane!
Not trying to be funny or racist (I have a caucasian sister n law) but a lot of things I read about concerning his behavior NOT TOO MANY BLACK WOMEN would have put up with that! I actually commend this woman for trying to carry on his legacy. Her statement sounds JUST LIKE SOMETHING HE WOULD SAY!!!LOL RIP Richard Pryor!
Lmao dayumm she giving mike a whole stack. She sound just like richard pryor when she be saying stuff like dat. I can't even defend mike cuz I don't think he's funny, he just dumb as shyt, and sometimes that's what makes me laugh. I seen a couple of his stand up comedies and them jawns was corney as shyt. Some people just aren't brave enough to say it, She was tho lol.
Mike is funny a$$ H3ll! I dont know what movies u guys r watchin.Just seen him do stand up on HBO last weekend n it was funny.I can list a few movies he was n. I like Marline Williams but dont sleep on Mike. As far as his wife she need 2 watch her month she the1 who sounds like she has issue with people from the country. Who is she 2 say he has no talent, what talent does she have.
i read somewhere richard pryor hand picked mike epps and i was like wtf? mike epps has some moments where he is funny but he is just not consistent especially his stand up cause he recycles his stand up he from the midwest indianapolis and gary,in. and gary right next to chicago so i wish him best of luck
SOUNDS LIKE SHE WAS ONE STEP FROM CALL'N HIM A "N" HOME GIRL HAS ISSUES WHAT TALENT DOES SHE HAVE XCEPT WIPEING SHI'T OFF RICHARD AZZ... SHE'S DIGGING HERSELF A GRAVE RIGHT NEXT 2 RICHARD...SHE WAS JUST A GOLDDIGGER BEHIND TINT...THAT REALLY NEED 2 CHILL & KNOW HER PLACE...REALLY DONT THINK SHE KNOW WHAT SHE'S GETTING HERSELF INTO... WHITE LADY!!!!
CAN'T REALLY THINK OF ANY FUNNY COMEDIANS ANYMORE DEFINITELY "NOT" CHRIS ROCK....DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THE GAME...BUT WISH THEY WOULD BRING BACK THE FUNNY...BUT THAT STILL DOESN'T GIVE THIS LADY THE RIGHT TO DISRESPECT THE GAME CONSIDERING SHE WAS A SEAT FILLER GROUPIE THAT GOT A PROMOTION TO A WIFE.
Um, I still kind of think that she's a gold-digger, but he must of had said or did something to PISS her off. I'm not on her side per se, but not on his either. I don't think that she was married to him long enough for me not to consider her a gold-digger. BTW- most of his kids are mulatto anyway, so the fact that she is white shouldn't be the biggest concern right now. Mike has done some funny stuff, some, hes not the funniest. Is it me, or does she look like Liza Minnelli?
I get you and I believe Richard did do his wives wrong but I have an issue with her running in to "save" him when he was unable to care for himself only to make him look like a fool in public. Richard may have been a piece of work but she's not that far behind.
She for some reason feels that she has a lifetime "Black Card" but ahhh NO!?...Richard Pryor is resting...she's just another white woman on the prowl....To speak sideways out of her mouth like that was to say at the very least disrespectful. If she felt that way about him why not spit that to his face?...Why tell him.."yeah he like you"...then go behind his back and call him "step and fetch it?"...and For her to even UTTER those words come off to me as clowning the race.Blacks are forgiving alot of stuff these days,you'll wind up back in chains...keep it up!
is she jewish? they are almost as crazy as we are.
He needs to dedicate a whole show to moppin the floor with her dumb azz. what could he possibly have done to deserve all that is what i want to know.
she is just lookin for some revelance.
SMH @ yall defending this ignorant tramp what she said was trashy and ghetto if a black woman would of wrote that all of yall would of been bashing/talking down on her calling her names like ghetto & hoodrat but since it's a white woman it's ok? get yall sh*t together and there's nothing funny about what she wrote she sounds uneducated..dumb ass trashy ass broad.
I agree with ole girl...Mike Epps should not portray Richard Pryor...I would not pay a dime to see that coonery...Mike is not educated enough to play Richard...he just does not have the "it" factor...Mike's a coon that got put on in the industry because he freaked and got high with a few celebs here and there...that's how Hollywood is...it's all about who you're willing to freak wit to get put on...it has nothing to do with talent...
Wow. Brothas and sistas need to boycott the flick. Can't you see. This broad is going to make mad $ from it. And a white woman (Jewish) at that. No. And how can any black side with her? That tramp didn't love him. White hoe was after his $. Black men can be so dumb at times. Get $ then get with a white woman. That's why blacks don't have anything now...always being tricked out of their birthright. White people have no soul. They were made in your image by one of your own. Wake up and quit siding with them. Why does the sun (Son) burn them?
When we side with one of them we give them our power. There is no such thing as a race. All of the races were created on this planet cause you were bored. Now wake the fu(k up, and quit letting the clones run and rule your lives.
Wow, what a b1tch. Those words hurt ME. It's obvious she has no class. I hope whatever she's angry with she works it out & not take out her aggression on other ppl. The way she talkin looks like she's used to talkin to ppl like this.
I just saw something very simular a few minutes ago...white girl going hard with her mouth..cause she was with a black male....well let just say the cops treated her like her name was Tequita...LMAO!!
They spend time with a black male and they thnk?...thay have a "all out pass"
N i thought i was the only one who thought he was the most un-funniest comedian on earth... Mike Epps is by far the worst comedian i ever seen... Def Comedy Jam replaced him for good reason... No talent at all and to this day i refuse to watch the two Friday movies without Chris Tucker... Thanks Mrs. Pryor
Daaaaaaaa-dammmmnnn! Nuccas love calling other nuccas coons. How in tha hell chris rock isn't a coon but mike epps is? I bet as soon as shift time start on 95% of yall jobs you doing a jig acting a coon and fixing coffee for tha white man so kill that noise. Eddie Murphy played with his ass on Harlem Nights and turn down the role cuz the money wasn't right. His own icon! But she wanna go in on Mike Epps?
Mike Epps is labeled a coon but Pryor in his final years and years after blacks got him to where he was goes out and marries a pale ghost. Lol! Who's tha fuckin coon? Some of yall self conflicting nuccas need to open ya damn eyelids on some of these people ya put on a pedestal while they here or earth and in the after life.
If this is true, then Richard's wife is saying how she feel from things that went on between her, her husband, and Mike Epps. There's nothing wrong with showing her true feelings. She's just not sugar coating anything. She is right about Mike not being funny. lol
is she illiterate?
y r we talkin' 'bout this?
she must have tried 2 holla at him or somethin'? got a thang 4 black comedienes, or somethin'....
so what he didn't get the part, he still funny azz f#ck and actually he'z beginning 2 look good 2
No she didn't talk crazy about Day Day!!!...He must wouldn't give her ole white azz any dick! That's why she's mad...LMAO
And why summa yall in here don't believe that she said all this?? Please, I don't care what color a person is, or how they usually act, but get someone pissed off enough and they'll shole snap out with the quickness! Don't be so naive folks.
Eddie Murphy was slated to do the Richard pryor project, but then he backed out and now or going to be Marlon Wayans....I know, but he convinced the producer with just a 10 minute performance he did of Pryor.
Did she really write this?
No matter what he did, this is just tacky and low class
I don't think Mike is funny, either
Did he really say it was hard to listen to a white woman talk about Richard? He couldn't POSSIBLY be that ignorant, could he? How racist
She tore him a new asshole, lol
1st off this ladi well the way she talkn..this bitch has no class at all.fuq wat he did she shuld hav more respect 4 herself as a woman thn tu b publicly speakn lik dhat.ok if dhats how she feel fine but bitch keep it tu yaself.fuq if he hav talent or not who the hell is she tu judge n fuq him not gettn the part dhats def not gne break him..
Well I'm no big fan of Mike Epps, but he has whatever success he has in his own right. She is probably in debt or going quickly and needs this project for a second wind. The money Eddie Murphy makes as a comedian wasn't the case when Richard Pryor was on top. The films/movies he was in, he acted in ONLY, so if they are remade she want have a right to them. When it comes down to it if both she and Mike walked down the street people would recognize him. The same cant be said for her.

oh .i'd pass... i would prefer to appreciate some big beautiful ladies dancing in front of me without anything dressed up better shaking their beatiful meat.i mean in the video.wat i need to do is sitting at my laptop and imaging nice bxxbs.well i recommend you a place with drooly BBW video. http://www.plusflirt.com free to join lol .C'MON```
OK, someone has to be the voice of reason on MTO, uh, Mike Epps IS talented, IS funny, and respect to Richard Pryor's memory, but I don't remember HER (Mrs Pryor) telling near a damn joke. So her opinion is not quite as relevant to me as it is to you silly negroes, but I have enjoyed Mike Epps' work throughout his career. DayDay ain't funny?!? Fugouttahere
Oh, what you guys said are not exactly the truth, just found some more new detailed info about this topic on a perfect blog of -----------interracialsearching.com------you may enjoy more as dating, news there.
I love it I love it...I LOVE IT LOL She's my new mentor!
You wonder what attracted people to each other, now we know. Her and Richard were soulmates! Get em girl. Mike ain't shyt, playing the same character in every movie. High humor....boooo!
Chris Tucker MADE Friday. We accepted Mike but he aint that funny, he's silly like a class clown funny....but he damn sure aint no Martin, Eddie and for damn sure aint no Richard!
Hell he aint even no Katt and that's the truth Ruth! Sit cho ass down Mike and try to figure out how to be a LEAD in movie instead of the trusty SIDEKICK! WOMP WOMP
Can we say Illiterate!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry I like Mike Epps, he's funny to me, I go see his shows when he's in town.
Of course she thinks her husband was the funniest thing ever, he was a crackhead, crackheads are always funnier than regular people.
Mike Epps don't have to live off Richard Pryor career, kids today have absolutely no clue whatsoever who Richard Pryor is, he left NO MARK whatsoever, not like Fred Sanford!
What rapper did she have to pay to write this shyt? "....youse"? and "country ass no talent bitch"? She should have said "nukka" at the end of this rant to make it official.
If she did say this...this just shows you can pay for school but you can't buy class. TEAM MIKE EPPS!!
the women sounds like she is trying to be ethnic.and as far as the mike haters i have seen his one in only stand up and that was veeeeerrry funny he is country an he was talking about real ppl in the country hood in it was funny im not from the country but alot of wat he was talking about i could relate to and i was dying laughing on his stand up big ups to mike and where was that braud at when rich was burnin his azz up??????
OOH SHUT UP YOU NO TALENT MONEY HUNGRY WHITE BYTCH YOU ARE THE ONE WITH NO TALENT YOU GOLD DIGGIN RED NECK YOU PROBALY TRIED TO HOLLA AT MIKE AND HE TURNED YA OLD NASTY WHITE AZZ DOWN. sHUT THE FVCK UP, mIKE DON'T EVEN GET INVOLVED WITH THIS LOW LIFE BITCHHHHHH 4 REAL YOU HAVE TALENT AND WE LIKE COUNTRY AZZ MEN. lIKE rICHARD WAS A SAINT!!!
Yesterday, Entertainment Weekly said writer/director Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) was shopping his own script with Eddie Murphy set to star in Richard Pryor: Is It Something I Said?, while HitFlix went further to say it had been shopped to Fox Searchlight with a $25 million budget. Condon helped Murphy get an Oscar nomination in Dreamgirls, and Murphy used to impersonate Pryor in his young stand-up act, so you'd think this would be a solid choice.
Then again. Two things.
1) Eddie Murphy is such a star himself, that despite the impersonation, I'll be curious to see how he slips into the role and life of the groundbreaking Pryor without reminding us that he is Eddie Murphy. In Dreamgirls, he was playing off of his James Brown/SNL riffs without having to play the actual James Brown, so it was a little easier to follow. Yes, yes, Jamie Foxx won an Oscar playing his Ray Charles. It is possible. And in a more of an apples-to-apples comparison, Jim Carrey pulled off Andy Kaufman in Man on the Moon. But I sometimes watch Eddie's brother, Charlie Murphy, and find myself thinking about Eddie. I'm not the only one who does that, right?
2) Which leads me to a previous attempt at a Richard Pryor biopic. Just a few years ago, comedian Mike Epps was telling MTV News that he would play Pryor, saying in 2005 he was personally auditioning for the family. In December 2006, Epps said a family fight over the late comedian's assets had delayed the project, along with a desire to rewrite the script with material from Pryor's daughter, Rain. Pryor and wife, Jennifer Lee Pryor, had been producing that project, and Jennifer had told Variety back in May 2005 that they originally had thought of Damon Wayans for the role, but reconsidered. "The material is larger than life, and you need someone to fit into it who's not extraordinarily famous or else it would be like Al Jolson playing Malcolm X," she said. "Richard and I saw Mike's standup, and there is a dangerous edge, a Richard-esque quality about him." Pryor died in December 2005.

She has no dignity. She sounds like a low class drug addict that Richard picked up from the gutter and cleaned up. You can take the trash out of the ghetto but you can't take the ghetto out of the trash.
I agree with Richard Pryor's wife. It appears that Epps is nothing except a stupid sounding imp!!!!!!!! He is not in the same class with Richard Pryor, he cannot hold a candle to Richard. That is what's wrong with the world today, upcoming wanna be artist does not have sense enough to realize that they are standing on others shoulders.....Epps Stinks and Country just like she said he was!!!!
