“The Talk” has tapped Eve to join them on the panel host format. After appearing as a guest host back in October, CBS hired her to take the place of Aisha Tyler who left the show back in June.
Eve will join Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood.
According to Deadline, Angelica McDaniel, EVP Daytime Programs at CBS said, Eve “brings a fun and fresh prospective to our already diverse panel” and will add “a new layer to the show as we continue to evolve season to season.”
Eve told Deadline, “I think what I’m looking forward to the most is showcasing my personality and who I am now as a woman. In my career, people know me from my music and I have done certain things in entertainment, but this is a different avenue for me.”
Being that she and her husband currently live in London, Eve said she had to think about the offer before she signed on.
“Once I did the first test week and I met all the ladies, I felt the energy — not only from them but everyone I met on the set, and it was great,” she said. “It was one of those exciting moments in life where I thought it would be a good challenge for me. If it feels right, then it must be right.”
Eve said she ultimately signed on because she feels “The Talk” showcases a diverse group of women’s opinions on certain issues.
