Did Dean Unglert Propose to Lesley Murphy on the Bachelor Winter Games Finale?!

Bachelor Winter Games host Chris Harrison has teased a “surprising, romantic and beautiful marriage proposal” on Thursday night’s reunion show — so is Dean Unglert the guy who pops the question?

In a promo for the finale, Unglert — a fan-favorite on Rachel Lindsay‘s season of The Bachelorette who earned a playboy reputation as the center of a love triangle on Bachelor in Paradise — bends down on one knee for Lesley Murphy.

Then, the camera pans to someone holding a Neil Diamond engagement ring … but only time will tell if Unglert, 26, really asked Murphy, 30, to marry him. (Remember that super playful kissing competition?)

Murphy previously told PEOPLE that she connected with Unglert because of their shared sad history: “We bonded over the fact that both of our moms had breast cancer and his mom unfortunately passed away. He knew about my surgery and my recent double mastectomy. He had the sweetest things to say about it. He was like, ‘I commend you so much for doing that.’”

The season finale of Bachelor Winter Games airs on Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Ryan Murphy Apologizes To Women In Hollywood For The Industry’s Lack Of Equality

Ryan Murphy has a message for the women of Hollywood. 

In a touching speech during The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment breakfast on Wednesday, the “Glee” creator accepted the Equity in Entertainment Award, kicking things off with an apology. 

“I am going to begin my speech this morning by telling the women in this room a few things I am guessing no man in your life or in Hollywood has ever said to you lately, or in combination,” he said. “I am sorry. It was my fault. I could have done better and I’m going to do better. And I have no interest in sleeping with you, I just like you a lot.” 

The opening comments garnered laughs from the crowd. Murphy then got serious, launching into an anecdote about the “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia” episode ― about deputy district attorney Marcia Clark ― of “The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” 

For that particular episode, Murphy explained he hired a female director, but when she wasn’t able to complete the show due to a medical emergency, Murphy decided to step in. The show, as a whole, was a huge success, and Sarah Paulson, who played Marcia Clark, went on to win a Golden Globe for her work. 

As Murphy noted, though, he “did not feel triumph” once the episode aired. He felt “ashamed.”

“I have always had female directors on my shows, but why, here, didn’t I feel I had a roster of women around me who I could turn this important episode over to?” he said, adding, “Why did I make the choice that was easier for me but not for the material or the world in general?”

In his speech, the director continued to talk about the “unacceptable way, today, that female directors are treated and marginalized in our business.” He said that only 15–17 percent of working television industry directors are women, which “should make no sense to us.”

Murphy has made it his mission to promote gender equality in the entertainment industry. In February, he launched the Half Foundation, which aims to provide more opportunities for women, people of color and members of the LGBTQ community working in show business. 

Murphy has been doing his part, with about 60 percent of directing jobs within his company going to women

“What I have learned, in only 11 months, is if you have power and you want to bring positive change, everyone will conspire to help you do that. But you have to speak up,” he said.

Eddie Murphy Nails Bill Cosby Joke In Rare Stand-Up Set

Eddie Murphy delivered a rare stand-up set with the very thing he didn’t want to do a few months ago: a Bill Cosby joke. 

Murphy received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at the Kennedy Center on Sunday night, where he took to the stage for his first stand-up performance in 28 years. Back in February, we learned via a tweet from former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Norm Macdonald that Murphy had declined to portray Cosby on the “SNL” 40th anniversary special, not wanting to “kick a man when he is down.”

But Murphy wasn’t holding back on Sunday. “Bill has one of these,” the Oscar-nominated comedian joked, referring to the Mark Twain bust that honorees receive. “Did you all make him give it back?” (Several universities have revoked Cosby’s honorary degrees in the wake of his numerous sexual abuse allegations.) 

Murphy then morphed into Cosby’s sing-songy lilt, saying, “I would like to talk to some of the people who feel that I should give back some of my motherf**king trophies.” Continuing in his best “Pudding Pop” voice, a callback to his Cosby impression from his famous 1987 stand-up film ”Raw,” Murphy reportedly said, ”You may have heard recently that I allegedly put the pill in the people’s stomach … If I ever see or meet this Hannibal Buress in person, I am going to try and kill this man!”

Days earlier, Murphy had explained his decision not to do Cosby at the “SNL” anniversary tribute: ”There’s nothing funny about it,” he told The Washington Post. “If you get up there and you crack jokes about him, you’re just hurting people.” But Arsenio Hall, who was at Sunday’s celebration, told the Post that Murphy discussed the potential Mark Twain bit with him and Chris Rock, eventually changing his tune. “[Murphy] said, ‘Because Cosby gonna get sick of this soon, he’s gonna get sick of people hating, and eventually he’s gonna have to say something,’” Hall said of Murphy’s decision. “And we were like, ‘That is funny, man. Are you willing?’”

You can see a snippet of the set around the 2:25 mark in this video from The Associated Press. A full broadcast of the event airs Nov. 23 on PBS.

Eddie Murphy Explains Why He Wouldn’t Portray Bill Cosby On ‘SNL’ Special

Eddie Murphy says he chose not to reprise his famous impression of Bill Cosby on the “Saturday Night Live” 40th anniversary special because he didn’t want to joke about the embattled comedian’s sexual assault scandal.

“It’s horrible,” Murphy told The Washington Post in a lengthy interview published Tuesday. “There’s nothing funny about it. If you get up there and you crack jokes about him, you’re just hurting people. You’re hurting him. You’re hurting his accusers. I was like, ‘Hey, I’m coming back to SNL for the anniversary, I’m not turning my moment on the show into this other thing.'”

Cosby has been accused of sexually assaulting more than 50 women.

Murphy, a former “SNL” cast member, almost appeared in the sketch before changing his mind and deciding to simply give a brief speech instead. He told The Post he “totally understood” why “SNL” wanted to do the bit, which ended up starring current cast member Kenan Thompson as Cosby. 

“It was the biggest thing in the news at the time,” Murphy said. “I can see why they thought it would be funny, and the sketch that Norm [Macdonald] wrote was hysterical.”

After the airing of the February special, Macdonald explained in a series of tweets that Murphy declined to play Cosby because “he will not kick a man when he is down.” In response, Cosby released a statement thanking Murphy for his decision. 

“I am very appreciative of Eddie and I applaud his actions,” a Cosby spokesperson said.

Eddie Murphy Apparently Declined Offer To Play Bill Cosby On ‘SNL 40’

Eddie Murphy’s first appearance on “Saturday Night Live” in 30 years was awkward and stilted, but according to Norm Macdonald, it could have been a whole lot different. Over the course of several tweets posted on Wednesday, Macdonald explained that there was, at one point, the idea to include Murphy in the “SNL 40” version of “Celebrity Jeopardy” as Bill Cosby.

As Macdonald wrote, he was disappointed “Celebrity Jeopardy” had become about celebrity impressions for the “SNL 40” special. But writer Steve Higgins thought having Murphy mimic Cosby would help tie it all together. Wrote Macdonald:


Macdonald relayed a bunch of other anecdotes about the week, including that Bill Murray almost didn’t make the show because of a golf tournament, before finishing out the Murphy story:


Without Murphy’s involvement, the sketch wound up happening with Kenan Thompson in the role of Cosby.

Murphy and Cosby memorably crossed paths before. During the 1987 concert film “Raw,” Murphy recalled how Cosby chastised him about using foul language in his stand-up routine.
