Eve has stayed primarily out of the limelight and sadly hasn’t released any new material since 2013’s Lip Lock despite reprising her role as Terri in Barbershop 3: The Next Cut in April.

This week, she added co-host to her name after landing a week gig on Fox’s daytime talk show The Real.

When asked about her ongoing marriage to Maximillion Cooper, the former pitbull in a skirt shares:

“As a partnership, you kind of switch roles sometimes and I think that it’s interchangeable. There are certain things that my man, I wouldn’t be with my man if he couldn’t check me. He’d be the one to make me smile a little bit more and blush a little bit more.”

During an earlier episode this week, Eve also said that Cooper was the first man to see her without a hair weave.

“I wouldn’t let a guy see me in my braids in that moment, but now I’m like I don’t care,” she said. “It probably happened our first year actually. That’s when I knew I guess we’re staying together. … I was actually in a salon in a little suite and he walked in. I’m like what am I going to do, run?”

Cooper was a former race care driver who eventually went on to create the ultra popular Gumball 3000 event. The couple tied the knot in Ibiza, Spain in 2014 after being engaged for about a year.

Speaking with HipHopDX Editor-In-Chief Trent Clark during her promotional run for Barbershop 3, Eve spoke about the possibility of releasing new music in the future.

“I will be going in the studio in the next few months—finally,” she said. “But I needed to wait to be inspired. It took a minute but I now I’m completely ready and found where I wanna go and who I wanna work with. And it will still be an experiment because I haven’t been in the studio in a minute but I’m excited about it.”
