Eddie Murphy's stunning model wife, Nicole, filed for divorce on Friday after 12 years of marriage. They have five children. Although we believe in marriage, commitment and all that jazz, we want to know: What the heck took so long, woman? We don't know about Nicole, but we've never gotten over Eddie being caught with a transsexual hooker in his car. You remember, right? It was 1997 -- not too long after the whole Hugh Grant hooker story, so we know they weren't playing tiddlywinks in Eddie's Land Cruiser at 4:45am. Eddie was pulled over by cops while driving on a well-known West Hollywood prostitute strip with his "friend" riding shotgun. He wasn't charged, but the woman-man, Atisone Seiuli, was arrested on an earlier pros. charge. Eddie claimed he was just being a "good Samaritan" and that "it was an act of kindness that turned into a horror show." His career went on a downward spiral after the hooker thing, but he made a comeback with a string of kiddie films like Doctor Dolittle and the Shrek series, in which he appropriately played the ass.
