SHORT CUTS: Edmonds and Murphy to Wed Soon

Published October 18, 2007

Posted Oct. 18, 2007 -- Tracey Edmonds is revealing a few more tidbits about her forthcoming marriage to Eddie Murphy. 

"We're coming close," Edmonds, 40, reportedly told PEOPLE. "And I'll say it'll be before the end of the year ... and someplace far away and fun."

The guest list will be small, she says, adding that she expects the ceremony to be "romantic." "It's just going to be very close friends and family but very romantic – and we'll have a good time!"

She is also looking beyond the wedding to life with a blended family, admitting that bringing their two families together is "going to be a big step." Edmonds has two children and Murphy, 46, has five children with ex-wife Nicole Murphy and one with Spice Girl Melanie Brown.

"There will be some adjusting but I think it's going to be a lot of fun," Edmonds said. "Eddie's got some fantastic, beautiful fun kids and I've got two wonderful boys, so it'll be nice to get everybody together."

No "Karate Kid" for the Smith's

A publicist for Will Smith says he is not planning to produce a remake of the 1984 film "The Karate Kid" with his son Jayden in the starring role, as media sites previously reported.

  "He's certainly not. I don't know where that came from" said the actor's rep Heidi Schaeffer to Yahoo this week.

Word on the net had Jayden starring in the Ralph Macchio role of Daniel Laruso, and Jackie Chan suiting up as his mentor, Mr. Miyagi.

Sore Thigh Stops Williams' Match

Serena Williams was forced to retire from her first round match against Switzerland's Patty Schnyder Tuesday at the Zurich Open because of a sore right thigh.

"I was hitting really well yesterday and moving well," Williams said. "But before warmup I saw the trainer and said, 'Something's not right.'" The athlete was down 6-0, 3-0 when she decided enough was enough. "I hate to quit. I'm not a quitter," Williams said. "I don't like people to think, 'She gave up.' Maybe I worry too much about what other people say."
