Eve recently revealed that she may be the reason behind her early 2000s sitcom “Eve” being canceled. On Sunday, Sept. 20, the rapper/actress, was featured on TV One’s “Uncensored,” where she talked about her interracial marriage, music, what it was like having her own sitcom, and more.
In a clip from the episode, Eve addresses how she felt about having her own show at a young age. She starts “having my own sitcom, it was pressure, it was fun, it was stressful, it was amazing.”
The 41-year-old proceeded to detail why she believes she is to blame for the cancellation of the shows.
She says, “I was the youngest at the time of the cast, and a lot them was 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 a.m., like, trying to get to a table read.”
“Don’t do that, ever,” she adds.
“Eve” depicts the life of a young woman named Shelly who is attempting to find love, all while taking advice from her two best friends. JT, Shelly’s lover, also turns to his two best friends for relationship advice throughout the sitcom. The show was meant to give its audience a look at both the male and female side of love and complicated relationships. The UPN series originally aired in 2003 and was canceled after three seasons in 2006.
She continues, “When the show ended, it was definitely heartbreaking, because at that time we had done three seasons and we were family at this point. 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. Like still trying to hold on to kind of hanging out. And I was late, a lot. That’s not cool.”
Reminiscing, she says, “That’s not cool. You know I do think a lot of it had to do with my actions at that time. And I do think about it sometimes. When I look back on it I’m like, wow, 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.”
TV One aired Eve’s “Uncensored” episode on Sept. 20.
