ABC has closed a deal for a multi-camera comedy project to star actress-rapper Eve, from Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment and ABC Studios. The project, which is eyed for the 2014-15 development season, is looking for a writer. I hear Kaplan approached Eve (full name Eve Jeffers) with the idea for a multi-camera interracial romantic comedy. The two pitched it to ABC, which bought the project with penalty. Eve and Kaplan (ABC’s The Neighbors) executive produce. ICM Partners-repped Eve previously toplined her eponymous sitcom on UPN and starred in the Barbershop movie franchise.
Eve and her boyfriend Max Cooper are pregnant! Sources say she is now “a little more than 3 months.” If you are wondering why she went the swirl route..it could be because the guy is a BILLIONAIRE and yes that is with a “B.” This will be Eve’s first child and Max’ fifth. He has enough money to have about 62 children…lol
1st Lady of Ruff Ryder, Eve, was spotted leaving La Guardia airport in NY this weekend…she was asked if she knew what was going on with Ruff Ryders and if DMX would ever get back together with them…she responded:
“I’m sure you’ll see Ruff Ryders back together.”
But after being asked if she has spoken with them or X, she said no…so it’s safe to say SHE isn’t trying to reunite with them at all!!…lol
