Like many other Americans, comedian Eddie Murphy tuned into The Golden Bachelor.

It was supposed to be a brand new chapter in Bachelor Nation history, but things didn’t necessarily go according to plan. After a televised marriage, Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist called off their marriage after a mere three months.

Now, Eddie Murphy is sharing his true feelings on the breakup. And he isn’t holding anything back.

“Hey, they broke up, too. You know they broke up,” the Shrek star said about The Golden Bachelor leads. Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist announced their split in April after their January wedding.

“What kind of s— is that? Three months later. I watched that s—, I was like, ‘This is so nice, they found love in the second part of they life. This is a nice show. Bravo!’ Then I find motherf—– broke up three months later. The same old s—,” Murphy shared.

He didn’t say whether or not he will continue watching the series. Joan Vassos is the first confirmed Golden Bachelorette, so there will be at least one more season of the franchise.

However, after the massive disappointment following The Golden Bachelor, many fans wouldn’t be surprised to learn if Eddie Murphy never watched Bachelor Nation shows again.

Plenty of couples from the franchise have poor track records, but fans sincerely had high hopes for Gerry and Theresa.
