Comedian Charlie Murphy says it’s time to get real about the prospect of “Chappelle’s Show” ever returning to Comedy Central.
"`Chappelle's Show' is over, man. Done," he told TV Guide. "It took me a long time to be able to say those words, but I can say it pretty easy now, because it's the truth."
The comic, a “Chappelle’s Show” regular whose real encounters with Rick James were made into a skit that fostered Chappelle’s line, “I’m Rick James, b*tch!,” said he has come to realize that the show may never come back.
"I'm disappointed it ended the way it did, but I'm not angry with anybody," said Murphy, the older brother of Eddie Murphy. "’Chappelle's Show’ was like the Tupac of TV shows. It came out, it got everybody's attention, it was a bright shining star, but it burned out and for some strange reason, it burned out quick."


Teen screen star Lindsay Lohan could get a starring role in a horror show - her parents' messy divorce trial.
The "Mean Girls" star is expected to be dragged into the dispute by her boozing, brawling dad, Michael, when he squares off with her mom, Dina, beginning today in a Long Island courtroom, a source close to the case said.
"There's a good chance she might be subpoenaed," the source told the Daily News.
Michael Lohan, 44, who is currently doing 11/3 to four years in prison for assault and drunken driving, wants a cut of the millions his daughter has made.
But the 19-year-old actress, who recently skipped the London premiere of her Disney film, "Herbie: Fully Loaded," to be with her manager-mom, has said publicly that her pop doesn't deserve a cent.
"He didn't do anything for my career except go out and not come home at night," Lohan told W magazine. "So I don't think he deserves anything. He doesn't even deserve my respect."
Dina Lohan, 43, is seeking full custody of the couple's kids, alimony and $1 million in damages.
The Lohan family's dirty laundry will likely be aired behind closed doors. Justice Robert Ross has decided to close the proceedings in Nassau County Supreme Court after learning that Michael Lohan had pitched a reality TV show - about his own family drama.
"The case would be turned into a three-ring circus," the source said. "The judge closed the courtroom to protect the integrity of the case and the family."
Dina Lohan agreed.
"Dina wants this to be private and thinks this is a personal family matter," her spokesman Rob Shuter said.
Another source close to the Lohan family said the starlet was scheduled to remain on Long Island through Friday.
"Then she has to go back to Los Angeles," the source said.

MINE is bigger than yours" is still the name of the game among the yachting crowd in St.-Tropez. The 250-foot Christina O, built by Aristotle Onassis and chartered by Sean Combs with his girlfriend Kim Porter aboard, was Numero Uno until Paul Allen's Octopus pulled into port. The Microsoft billionaire's 357-foot behemoth holds two choppers, a submarine, and a permanent five-piece rock band (Allen plays guitar). On Tuesday night, Combs, Porter and Allen were among 400 revelers on Denise Rich's yacht, Lady Joy. The dockside crowd went wild when Mike Tyson came aboard. Also helping inaugurate Denise's 145-foot tub were Stephen and Christine Schwarzman (they own a modern house in the hills), Ivana Trump (she just bought a third house in the seaport) with Rossano Rubicondi, Joan Collins and Percy Gibson, Ahmad Rashad and Sale Johnson, Rebecca De Mornay, Coerte Felske, Spyros Niarchos, Serena Boardman, Terry Allen Kramer and Kieran Kawall, who orchestrated the extravaganza that raged until dawn. Denise had planned to sail for Sardinia next morning, but a mistral (high northerly wind) detained her on the Cote d'Azur.
