What's not to love about the pitbull in a skirt? Eve Jihan Jeffers is Philadelphia's own home girl who's translated her rhymes and edgy style into Hollywood cache. Grabbing her own self-titled television show and getting the opportunity to make out with Michael Ealy when she played Terri in Ice Cube's "Barbershop," Eve's had it pretty good. As we gear up to see Eve-y Eve at the ESSENCE Music Festival on July 6-8, let's take a look back at her journey.
In 2003, Eve scored a UPN television series built around her as a clothing boutique owner named Shelly. The “Eve” show lasted three years and was cancelled in 2006. Here is Eve with her fellow cast members from L-R: Jason George, Eve, Ali Landry, Natalie Desselle-Reid, Sean Maguire and Brian Hooks.
