Call girl and jazz singer, Eve Russell nee Johnson (played by Tracey Ross) and Julian Crane (played by Ben Masters) fell for each other very quickly when they first met. They conceived a child, but did not stay together. Later, Eve turned her life around becoming a doctor, getting married, and having two more children. Eve and Julian crossed paths again. They became engaged after she divorced her husband. Things were rough for them, and considering the two lived in Harmony, rough included a lot.
Harmony is the hometown of Passions, a soap opera that aired from 1999 to 2008. The two actors played their roles for the full run of the show.
My Comments: I originally posted this under the heading "Watch" because from my searches on the Internet, I'd determined that they were a couple. As a result of more recent searches, I cannot find information that confirms the two are dating.
To see my reasoning, please look at the comments with this post. And to try to squelch more misunderstandings, I have left the links to Tracey Ross and Ben Masters, as well as added those of Tracee Ellis Ross even though I do not do that with TV posts. My hope is that people will read the links.
(Linda) Tracey Ross, 52 year old actress from Passions
Ben Masters, 64 year old actor from Passions
Tracee Ellis Ross, 39 year old actress from Girlfriends and daughter of Diana Ross
