Eve finds her perfect match as she returns to TV with 'Queens'

"They know it's not just being thrown to a person who says they do music. It's being thrown to a person that they know does and respects music for many years now. So I think, you know, a lot of them said, 'When I heard you were involved, it made us more excited to close out and move forward.' That was a blessing."

It's also a different choreography for Eve, who walked away from the daytime show "The Talk" last year to spend more time with her family in London. Just because she'll be back on screens weekly doesn't mean she's back back. She likes her life the way it is, thank you very much. While "Queens" could well make her a TV star — again — home is where her heart is.

"I like my peace. I like my life in London," she says. "If I'm in Atlanta or L.A., to me, that's work. And I embody that fully. And not that I don't work in London, but my stuff that I do in London is a lot more chill. Like I have a podcast ['The Eve's Drop']. I just finished my second season, so I definitely stay busy. It's just I stay quiet.

"I don't think of it as like, 'Wow, this is gonna be this thing.' The show is definitely going to be big for sure. I do know that it's gonna be amazing, the music people will love, but you know I'm just ... I'm happy to be a part of such a cool project."

The '90s were very kind to Eve. With "Queens," she's returning the favor. Says Eve: "You're gonna love it."
