Author Elaine Welteroth has been named as one of the new cohosts of daytime talk show, The Talk.
Walteroth and Amanda Kloots will join season 11 of the show, alongside hosts Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and Carrie Ann Inaba.
The women will replace cohosts Marie Osmond and Eve.
Author Elaine Welteroth said she was “beyond excited and grateful to join the women of ‘The Talk.'”
“They have each made me feel right at home alongside them on this incredible platform that cultivates connection, kindness and understanding when we all need it most,” she said in a statement. “I look forward to learning from them and lending my perspective to conversations that build bridges in this singular time in our world.”
Kloots, a former Broadway dancer, also released a statement expressing her delight over her new position.
“From the very first time I guest cohosted on THE TALK, I knew I was among a very special group of people,” she said in a statement. “I look forward to starting off the new year with honest and thought-provoking discussions, mixed with plenty of fun and laughter too.”
Last month, Eve announced her departure from the show, telling viewers she wants to focus on “expanding her family.”
“I have had the most beautiful experience,” she said. “I’ve grown as a woman, as a person. I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again: I never thought that being on a talk show would be this much of an opening of my spirit, soul, personality, everything. Sitting onstage with all you women has been the best thing ever. I truly love you.”
