Rocsi & Eddie Make First OFFICIAL Appearance At Debra Lee's BET Awards Dinner, Tons Of Celebs Party It Up
Looks like BET's "106 & Park" host Rocsi Diaz is ready to fess up about her relationship with veteran actor Eddie Murphy. After claiming to be just "coffee buddies who are just working together" and their week long romantic vacay in Maui, the twosome were extra public with their PDA at last night's Pre-Awards dinner hosted by Rocsi's boss Debra Lee. How interesting.
Lots of pics and deets inside...
Looks like Rocsi has officially solidified herself a job after she leaves "106 & Park" this year. What that job is exactly...who knows. But we're taking an educated guess that it involves the usual--being Eddie's chick and seeing what opportunities she can make from that.
We're told Rocsi is "head over heels in love." So it's no shocker she was anything but shy about making it known they were very much together at last night's Pre-BET Awards dinner at Union Station in L.A. Debra Lee even called them out during her welcome speech as being there together. Awwwwwkward.....
We're told by a source on BET's production team that the two will indeed hit tonight's red carpet together--hand in hand...
Rocsi looked nice in a navy halter style cocktail dress as she stayed close to Eddie's side all night and snapped pics with Cedric The Entertainer and Spike Lee.
Ciara flaunted her gams in this high slit plunging V black dress and Louboutin pumps. Sexy.
And she chatted it up with Spike Lee & wife Tonya. Wonder if she was campaigning for another movie role.
Rocsi's co-host and Think Like A Man actor Terrence J hit the carpet looking dapper with his girlfriend Selita Ebanks. She looked modelicious in her high slit draping white gown.
And Selita had some fun posing it up inside the posh dinner with her girl Estelle.
BET actors Tatyana Ali and Hosea Chanchez made their way inside. Loving this tangerine chic dress on Tatyana.
Michelle Williams hit the carpet in a tan and white maxi dress and kept her look soft with a few long waves:
And she caught up with her former Destiny's Child groupmate LeToya Luckett on the carpet.
Kenny Lattimore and Wendy Raquel Robinson all grabbed a pic inside.
Wendy's co-star on "The Game," Barry Floyd (TeeTee), also hit the carpet.
The fabulous Tamia kept it fab in a sexy plunging V blue mini dress and jeweled gold clutch and matching gold belt.
Model Beverly Johnson kept it simple...and perky...in all black.
Melanie Fiona looked gorge as usual in a cobalt blue curve hugging dress with gold booties and a pop of orange on the lips. Loves it.
Diggy Simmons looking extra cute with his 17-year-old-too-young-for-these-chicks self.
"efill" singer Elle Varner sparkled all over the carpet in this silver & white sheer and sequined mini dress. Wish she wouldn't have done a red satin purse or red headband with it though.
Debra Lee snapped a pic inside with Frankie Beverly.
Singer Goapele is still looking great. The 34-year-old showed off her curves in a silver sequined fitted dress.
Youngin' Jacob Latimore kept it fresh for the ladies on the carpet. I'm sure the 13-year-old girls were swooning.
Celebrity trainer Jeanette Jenkins hit the carpet in a strapless tangerine dress.
"Let's Stay Together" co-stars Joyful Drake & Nadine Ellis posed it up. Great colors for Nadine.
LaLa Anthony hit the carpet sans Carmelo last night in a fab glam black sequined number:
And chatted up Selita and Shaun Robinson.

Lance Gross did his usual soft palette of colors and looked damn good.
Heeeeey Lorenz Tate. Good to see him out and about again.

Miguel and his curly 'do hit the carpet.
Hubby/wife wrter/director duo Mara Brock Akil & Salim Akil--creators of BET shows "Girlfriends," "The Game," and the upcoming "Being Mary Jane."
Tyrese and Al Sharpton got cheesy on the carpet.
"For Better Or Worse" actress Tasha Smith rocked a cute new bob on the carpet with her hubby.
"Reed Between The Lines" actor Malcolm Jamal Warner was there to support his network.
Tichina Arnold upped her sexy factor for the event.
Actress Yvette Nicole Brown looked nice--but extra covered up.
And actress Erica Hubbard hit the carpet in red.
