Eve Says Her Actions Contributed To Her UPN Show's Cancellation: 'It Was Heartbreaking'

An upcoming episode of TV One’s Uncensored will focus on multihyphenate Eve. In the episode, she will open up about “her trial by fire with the Ruff Ryders, the dynamics of her interracial marriage, and the career-changing decision that led to her first Grammy Award.”

She also spoke about having her own, self-titled UPN sitcom and said that she believes her actions had a part in the show’s ending. Eve aired from 2003-2006 on the network and also starred Jason George, Ali Landry, Natalie Desselle-Reid, Brian Hooks and Sean Maguire.

“Having my own sitcom was everything,” she explained.”It was pressure. It was fun. It was stressful. It was amazing. I was the youngest at the time of the cast and a lot of them were just getting married or just buying their first house or like just having babies. I was still going to the club trying to get to set at like 9:00 a.m., like trying to get to a table read, which was… don’t do that ever. It took me a minute to figure out that rhythm because I’d always been on tour all my life pretty much up until that point. When the show ended, it was definitely heartbreaking because at that time we had done three seasons and we were family at this point.”

She went on to say why she thinks that she played a part in the decision to end the show. “I do believe a lot of it had to do with the fact that I was trying to kind of straddle both sides of my life,” she added. “Like still trying to hold on to kind of hanging out. And I was late a lot. That’s not cool. You know, I do think a lot of it has to do with my actions at that time. And I do think about it sometimes. When I look back on it, I don’t believe in regrets, but that is one time in my life where I feel like I wish I would have taken it a little more seriously than I did.”

The full episode airs September 20 on TV One. Watch a preview below:
