Eve, Naturi Naughton, Nadine Velazquez & Brandy Talk ‘Queens television show with Breakfast Club and the women reveal thoughts on DMX and more.

The most experienced actor on Breakfast Club interview was Brandy who has acted since she was a teenager with a variety of shows under her belt such as Thea, Cinderella,and Moesha, but seemed to be the most humble from the new ABC series about a 90’s girl group trying to regroup to their past glory in the present day 2021.

Naturi Naughton who has seen success in acting with the very popular Power franchise from 50 Cent was joined by Eve who spoke about Fibroids, Endometriosis and black women’s treatment in healthcare. The rap star also revealed her pregnancy for the first time in the interview below.

The women from the latest ABC Television series also spoke with long standing urban media outlet Vibe Magazine. Eve, Brandy, Naturi Naughton, and Nadine Velazquez talked about the complexities of their characters, sisterhood, which women in hip-hop they drew inspiration from. “What all our characters represent is what many women go through,” Eve expressed. She plays the Brianna a.k.a. Professor Sex, a wife and mother of five trying to reignite the spark she once had as her renowned persona. Eve—being that rap legend in real life— revealed that despite her having several similarities to her onscreen character, she’s able to “be a lot more feminine,” more than normal. The First Lady of Ruff Ryders, along with Brandy and Naturi, pulled inspiration from MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, and Lauryn Hill. Naturi even reflected on her portrayal of Lil Kim in the 2009 biopic, Notorious.

Eve  explained how she received a blast from the past, while filming the series. “For me, it goes back for me, like Salt N Pepa, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte. For me, they were those pretty tomboys, being able to hang with the dudes. And then through high school, it was Lil Kim and Foxy and Lauryn Hill. I am a super fan of female MCs,” stated the Ruff Ryder icon.

The Hip-Hop dramedy premieres Tuesday, Oct. 19 at 10 p.m. ET.
