Eve Dishes On Adjusting To Being A Stepmom: “It Is Hard And It Is Challenging”

Last summer, Eve married her longtime love Maximillion Cooper in Ibiza, Spain. And though the With This Ring actress admits to HuffPost Live that she felt a lot of pressure to become a mother, she says that she’s not quite ready to take that leap into motherhood just yet. Check out some highlights from her interview below.

On if she felt pressure to be married by a certain age:

“I didn’t pressure myself in that way. It was more about having children and wanting to have kids within a marriage, but not marriage specifically.”

On if she’s currently trying for a baby:

“No, we are happy in our newlywed bliss at the moment. We can’t wait, but we’re not rushing.”

On how many kids she wants to have:

“Well, we already have four. I’m a stepmom to four children. I’d love to have two of my own.”

On life as a stepmom:

“It is [very complicated], but I got very lucky. We’ve been together five years; I got with the kids at a good age. The two oldest are 11 and 12, so I think if I would have tried to get in on it now, it would’ve been like, ‘Who’s this chick?’ I kind of grew up with them. So now I’m a staple. But it is hard and it is challenging. My life was so different. I don’t even think I talked to kids before him.”

On boundaries she had to accept as a stepmom:

“Discipline is a big thing. If I maybe want to do something a little different, if one of the kids did something wrong, than he does. We grew up differently; my mom was very strict…So I have to kind of step back when it comes to things like that. That’s a hard one.”

“He’s The One That Tamed Me”: Eve Explains How Her Husband, Maximillion Cooper, Changed Her For The Better

Just this past June, rapper Eve married British entrepreneur and millionaire, Maximillion Cooper, in Ibiza. The two had been dating since 2010, and in that time, Eve, born Eve Jihan Jeffers, became close with Cooper’s kids and fell head-over-heels in love with him. Six months since tying the knot, the newlywed, who says she did change her name to Eve Cooper (it’s still just ‘Eve’ for business though), is spilling the tea about married life. While promoting her new Lifetime movie, With This Ring (which premieres on Saturday, January 24), Eve talked about how married life has changed her, what she loves about Maximillion…and one thing she would change about him.

In a chat with Meredith Vieira, Eve said that she likes the fact that Maximillion has brought her a sense of calm and a lot of happiness. And it helps that he’s also a cutie.

“He’s cute [laughs]. He’s really cute. We just have fun together. He’s the one that tamed me. He enjoys my crazy sometimes so it’s good. It’s a really good relationship, so I’m happy.”

But she does admit that the only thing about him that she isn’t that fond of is his dancing skills. Her hubby just can’t seem to keep up rhythmically.

“My poor baby. I don’t let him dance. It’s really bad. It’s honestly so bad that I thought he was joking. I was like, ‘Oh that’s cute! You’re like dancing…you know.’ And then he did it again and did it again, I was like, ‘You know what? You shouldn’t dance.’ He’s cute so it really messes his whole thing up. So I’m like, you know what? You stand still and I’ll dance around you.'”

But what Maximillion lacks on the dance floor, he makes up for big time in his support for Eve. The rapper, who has always been pretty independent, told CocoaFab that he is teaching her to stress a lot less.

“Being married has changed me in a lot of different ways. It’s funny because I’m a really fiercely independent person and I always have been. Being married, you have to relinquish some of that.

Not in a bad way but in the way that you need to sit back and trust your partner to be able help you with things. Sometimes my husband has to say to me, ‘Chill. You’re my wife now. I can take the ball from here. Don’t even stress.’

When you have been doing things for years and my life has been about me for so many years, it’s a weird thing. I have to remember that I have a partner now. I don’t have to stress myself on everything. I don’t have to do everything by myself anymore which is nice.”

Love these two and it’s great to see ‘Mrs. Cooper’ so happy. Check out her chat on The Meredith Vieira show below:

 

Regina Hall And Jill Scott Talk Giving Ultimatums And Making Vows To Get Married In Their Real Lives

When you hear the premise of the new Lifetime movie “With This Ring,” — three women attempting to get engaged or married within a year–you might think Well, that’s far fetched! What type of thirsty women act like that? 

But honey, the basic human need to be loved, mixed with societal pressures, combined with the sound of your biological clock ticking in your ear will have you doing some strange things. Y’all saw Mary Jane Paul trying to inseminate herself…The desperation can get real.

And today, when Eve, Regina Hall and Jill Scott, the women starring in the upcoming Lifetime movie With This Ring, appeared on “Today” they also spoke about some of the crazy lengths they’ve gone through trying to get married.

See what they had to say.

About the premise of the movie

Jill: I thought it was pretty realistic. Regardless of what we do and how much we accomplish, everybody wants to be loved.

Who is applying the pressure [to be married]?

Jill: Mothers!

Regina: And there’s a cultural pressure.

Eve: It’s cultural but I think we also apply pressure to ourselves, especially women who have a lot going on. Sometimes it takes a little while for us to find the right person because we’ve been working on our careers. And we’re like ‘oh, I forgot to do that?! I forgot to get married. I forgot to have kids.’

Eve on married life.

It’s honestly, really good. It’s different. It is different but I love it. I’m happy.

Have you ever heard of anyone really making that vow to get married in a year?

Regina: I did. I made that vow. I was talking to my girlfriend Sandy and I was like by this age, a certain age, we have to get married. We can’t walk around blaming being single on our careers. And we said we’re even going to marry the person, the same thing [as in the movie] the one we don’t…

Jill: I did put pressure on someone to get married. An ultimatum. I did that. It was whack. It was a terrible, terrible decision. I said if it doesn’t happen by New Year’s Eve, it’s over. I was asked on December 30.

What did we learn from this interview ladies? You don’t have to force it!

Watch their appearance on “Today” in the video below and you can check out “With This Ring,” which is pretty awesome, by the way, on Saturday, January 24th on Lifetime at 8/7c.

Lifetime is taking a break from biopics and getting back to it’s roots with a new romantic comedy starring some of our favorite ladies on the big screen. On January 24, the network will premiere “With This Ring,” a story about three single friends — Regina Hall, Eve, and Jill Scott — who vow to get married within one year.

As you can imagine, hilarious mishaps will ensue along the way of this mission in this cute flick which also stars Deion Sanders, Stephen Bishop (Heeey!), Brian White, Jason George, and Brooklyn Sudano. As Lifetime tells it:

After attending their friend Elise’s (Sudano) wedding to Nate (Bishop) on New Year’s Eve, Trista (Hall), a career-driven talent agent, Viviane (Scott), a successful gossip columnist, and Amaya (Cooper), a struggling actress, make a pact to get married within the year to either a new love or a man waiting in the wings. But the close friends face their own set of challenges – Trista has not gotten over her commitment-phobic ex-boyfriend Damon (White), Viviane is secretly in love with Sean (George), the father of her son, and Amaya is desperate to break up her boyfriend Keith’s (Sanders) unhappy marriage so they can live happily ever after. Each woman starts the year with high hopes and dreams of what will happen over the next 12 months…but will they all make it to the altar?

The movie is based on the best-selling novel The Vow by Denene Millner, Angela Burt-Murray, and Mitzi Miller and we have to say we can’t wait to watch this one. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think. Will you watch “With This Ring” on Lifetime January 24 at 8pm?

I can name quite a few classic songs off the top of my my head that Dr. Dre produced for some of rap’s heaviest hitters: “Nuthin But A G Thang,” “Who Am I (What’s My Name),” “In Da Club,” “The Real Slim Shady,” “Boyz-n-the-hood” and so on and so forth. But while the new billionaire is known for his beats (you like my play on words there?) he’s done for rappers and the impact they’ve had on hip-hop, he’s also done a number of tracks in R&B and pop music for a little bit of everybody, including the ladies. Here are nine surprising songs by and for the ladies that were produced by Dr. Dre (and if you already knew all these, kudos and a big ‘ol cookie to you!).

We’re glad to see the Lifetime network is taking a break from the bio-pics to feature some of our favorite starlets in a new film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Eve, Regina Hall and Jill Scott have been tapped to star in the original movie “With This Ring”.

The movie focuses on three single women who after attending a lavish New Year’s Eve wedding, vow to be married themselves within a year. Only 12 months will tell who actually makes it to the altar.

Tracey Edmonds, Sheila Ducksworth (Soul Food) and Gabrielle Union are all behind the film’s production and Nzhinga Stewart (The Game) serves as writer and director. “With This Ring” is scheduled to begin filming in Cleveland in August for a debut later this year.

“With This Ring” is the latest project to join a series of films aimed at African-American audiences including the remake of “Steel Magnolias”, “A Day Late And A Dollar Short” and bio-pics focused on the lives of Gabrielle Douglas, Whitney Houston and Aaliyah.  We’re looking forward to seeing these talented ladies on screen together.

[Watch] Eve, Soulja Boy And More Pop Up In First Trailer For Oxygen’s “The Sisterhood of Hip Hop”

We told you about the new show T.I. is producing for Oxygen called The Sisterhood of Hip HopThe show is supposed to follow women rappers like Diamond (formerly of Crime Mob), Brianna Perry, Bia, Nyemiah and Siya as they work to get their careers off the ground, juggle and try to maintain strained and complicated relationships, and try to interact positively with one another.

Well, the first full-length trailer for the show has surfaced, and if you ask me, it doesn’t look bad! The women (Siya in particular) have talent, and it seems that most of the conflict comes from their relationships with lovers and family (and family members who also double as managers), than with other cast members. There are also appearances from Soulja Boy, who of course, was in a relationship with Diamond for a while, Rick Ross, Tank, as well as Eve, who offers positive words to frustrated MC Bia.

As is stated in the trailer, “The game is hard enough for women so we all need to Kumbaya. That sounds cliche, but it’s the truth.” And that’s what we’re hoping the ladies will do when The Sisterhood of Hip Hop finally hits TV screens.

The show premieres on Tuesday, August 12 and it looks like it’s worth at least one watch before coming to any real conclusions. Check out the trailer for yourself below and let us know what you think.

Michael Fassbender

Perhaps best known as magneto in the blockbuster franchise X-Men, Michael Fassbender knew he wanted to be an actor since he was 17 years old. His first role came in the television miniseries “Band of Brothers.” The German-Irish actor has been romantically linked to actress Nicole Baharie and Leasi Andrews. He also dated Zoe Kravitz for several years. Recently rumors were sparked last month when the 12 Years a Slave actor was spotted hugging and kissing supermodel Naomi Campbell while dining at a London restaurant.

Every once in a while it’s refreshing to see a celeb who’s not about the drama, experiencing some true happiness. Rapper, Eve has been out of the music spotlight for a few years, but her personal life has been anything but boring. We love Eve because she’s just doing her. She’s not chasing fame via sex tapes, random pregnancies and arrests (although she’s had her fair share in her hay day). But lately she’s been lying low and falling in love.

On Friday night, the soon to be formerly-known-as Eve Jihan Jeffers enjoyed a bachelorette party surrounded by singer Mashonda and a few other close family and friends including comedienne, Whitney Cummings. Tycoon, Maximillion Cooper popped the question to the “pitbull in a skirt” this past December in Edinburgh, Scotland and the two plan to wed in Ibiza in June.

The pair have been dating since 2010. Cooper is a fashion designer and founder of the Gumball 3000, a 3000 mile British car rally, lifestyle brand and where the couple actually met. The rapper revealed to Chelsea Handler in June that this is the first interracial relationship both have been involved in.

Rocking a bride-to-be tiara, the former First Lady of Ruff Ryders posted a few pics on Instagram of the celebration and a caption that read:

Thanku to all my girls for tonight. The best #bachelorette party #ever #girlsnightout #almostmrscooper #fun I FEEL SO SPECIAL

Check out a few pics of the fun and Eve and her fiance on the next few pages. Congrats Eve!
