    • Reporter: Was Eddie Murphy serious off camera?

  • We Miss you in Las Vegas Ice Queen :)

    I’m a Las Vegas fan and I knew Ice Queen (Marsha Thomason) from that show she’s a very talented actress and I really missed her in the show I hope she will come back in the end of this season for at least one episode.

    She left the show by going back to England to meat here father or something like that I actually don’t remember but ED raised her and she spent most of her child hood with Delinda (ED’s daughter) and since she left they didn’t talked about her but it would be great seeing her back to the show.

    And yeah before she left the show there was some chemistry between her and Mike too bad that didn’t worked out they would be great couple :).
