Rapper/actress Eve has officially signed on to become a co-host for the CBS talk show The Talk. Eve, full name Eve Jeffers Cooper, will be replacing comedian and Criminal Minds regular, Aisha Tyler, who left last season after six years on the show.
The Grammy award-winning artist will host the afternoon talk show alongside Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood.
“We are thrilled to welcome Eve to the table as she brings a fun and fresh perspective to our already diverse panel,” VP daytime programs exec at CBS Entertainment, Angelica McDaniel, tells THR. “The great success of The Talk is due to the undeniable chemistry and bond of friendship between the hosts. Eve is an accomplished and dynamic performer, musician, wife, and stepmother who fits in seamlessly, while also adding a new layer to the show as we continue to evolve season to season.”
