It has long been said that behind every successful man there is a supportive woman. But what if the shoe is on the other foot and a woman at the top of her game is looking for that man for love and romance? Complications certainly arise.

That’s the premise of Queens Court, the new Peacock reality series that centers on three successful “queens,” Tamar Braxton, Evelyn Lozada, and Nivea, and their search for Mr. Right from a group of 21 potential “kings”.

Co-hosted by TV and film star Holly Robinson Peete and her NFL quarterback husband Rodney Peete, who have been married for nearly 28 years, the show is an opportunity for unique bonding experiences between the sisterhood of the three women and their suitors.

Lozada is an American television personality, model and spokesperson. She is best known as one of the six main cast members of the VH1 reality series Basketball Wives throughout its run beginning in 2010.

Nivea is an American R&B singer whose recordings hit the charts in the early 2000s. She is best known for her Grammy-nominated hit Don’t Mess with My Man. He has released three studio albums. In 2022, his song Virginia was released as a single and received critical acclaim.

Braxton, a singer and television personality, began her career in 1990 as a founding member of the R&B group, The Braxtons, with her sisters. In 2000, he released his debut album and has released several more albums. She has won three Soul Train Music Awards and has been nominated for four Grammy Awards.

On television, she starred in the WE television reality series Braxton Family Values, alongside her mother and sisters. She also co-hosted FOX’s daytime talk show The Real, for which she received two Daytime Emmy Award nominations. In 2019, he won the second season of Celebrity Big Brother.

“The only person who can stop you is you,” Tamar Braxton told Monster Sand Critics exclusively. “You have to open up and commit to being open and willing to accept all that you deserve.”

Read on for more on the sisterhood between the three “queens” and dating tips for viewers who may be out of practice.

Monsters and Critics: What did each of you learn from this show?

Tamara Braxton: I felt I was ready for this experience. However, once I really got into it, I felt like there were times when I felt like I wasn’t really ready. I had to work a little more on myself to be more open and accepting, and I just wasn’t. So I realized I was more closed off than I felt.

But that changed quickly and Holly and Rodney were able to help us navigate those times, and we’re so grateful to have them there. Because if they hadn’t been there, we would have gone back into our shells, which prevented us from finding our person in the first place.

Evelyn Lozada: I think I’m probably a little hard on men when I first meet them. And it’s about not judging a book by its cover and giving these guys a chance. And don’t be so cautious or so judgmental because maybe there’s something I know can be changed that I don’t like. So that’s pretty much what I’ve learned.

Nivea: I’ve learned to be more particular and not get so caught up in the fact that I like someone or something about someone. Yes, just being more intentional and focusing on what I want so I can get it, nothing else.

M&C: How important was the sisterhood between you and Holly coming into the mix for the success of the show and the personal success for you of how that felt?

Nivea: I’m proud to have appeared as sisters on TV, which unfortunately isn’t seen that often, and isn’t popular these days; I’m proud of it.

Evelyn Lozada: If that dynamic between us didn’t work, how would the show work?

Nivea: I do not know.

Evelyn Lozada: It’s like we don’t know how we could go through the shoot without really being there for each other, so we had so many fun conversations through it. After meeting guys, going on dates and doing different things. So yes, being with them helped me in the process because it wasn’t easy dating 21 guys.

M&C: That sounds like it would be fun.

Evelyn Lozada: It’s work.

Nivea: It’s a lot of work, kid. One is a lot of work, so 21 is…

Tamara Braxton: Yes, 21 is a lot.

M&C: Were there any major surprises in terms of the men or the dynamic or the dates or anything?

Tamara Braxton: Big surprises

Nivea: It’s hard not to say. We’re trying not to give too much away.

Evelyn Lozada: I will say that some of the dates were extremely creative. I’m like, wow, that’s something I’ve never done before. In terms of that, the different things we did, it was amazing. There were other surprises, but we cannot mention them.

M&C: Do you have any dating advice for people who may not have dated in a while, based on what you’ve learned from this show?

Tamara Braxton: Oh, it’s never too late.

Nivea: amen

Tamara Braxton: Yes, you can never give up on love. We’re in our mid-40s and could have easily been at home with how things are at home, but the truth is, everyone wants to find their person. And we all deserve to grow old with someone and travel with someone and be in love and have those butterflies. You can have these butterflies at any age.

M&C: Talk about the fact that many men can be intimidated by a successful woman. Did it come into play a lot during these dates that they had these egos that got in the way?

Tamara Braxton: To be honest, yes, for some of them. Some of them had a hard time, and some were willing to challenge it and make us feel bad about our success. But you quickly realize that he is not someone you want to be around. This is not the person for you. Because if you get into that situation, that situation won’t change at all. We’re really career women, we’re all single moms, and that’s an important thing for us to support our kids.

M&C: Why do you want my readers to watch your show?

Nivea: I think it’s inspiring. We are being very authentic and vulnerable and letting the world see it. That in itself, I think, will bring hope to many people who are still looking for love.

Tamara Braxton: One of us may remind you or your friends. Because that’s really what really happens when you get laid and start dating again.

Evelyn Lozada: You are right.

Queens Court airs on Peacock from Thursday 16 March, with all 10 episodes dropping at the same time.
