I have been reading a few gossip blogs and people keep saying "Eddie Murphy finally gets married to his "Beard" Tracey Edmonds. Why do they call her "Beard"?

    "Beard" is a term used to describe a woman that a man takes to places where he needs to be seen so that people won't know that he's gay.

    Having said that, nobody in their right mind would think that Eddie Murphy is gay. Certainly, Melanie (Scary Spice) Brown doesn't think so. There was an incident a few years back, where he found a prostitute who turned out to be a transvestite, but he deserves a pass on that.
