Oh, snap! Rapper #Eve just scored a cuuute gig, y’all! She guest hosted “The Talk” during the week of October 13th alongside Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood, but now she’s joined these women as a full-time host starting today! She will be replacing former host #AishaTyler who finished her last show in August to pursue a directing career.
While Eve lives in London with her husband and bonus children, she says that this opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time. “When I first got the first call in London, my manager told me about the opportunity, and at first I was like, ‘I don’t know, because it’s far from from home,’” Eve tells PEOPLE.
“But the last few months I’ve been feeling that I want to join something. This opportunity came and it’s something new, something exciting. It’s a new chapter in my life, so why not?” Eve looks forward to showcasing her personality and her growth as a grown azz woman on the show.
Network executives say that they are thrilled to have her on board! “We are thrilled to welcome Eve to the table as she brings a fun and fresh perspective to our already diverse panel,” said Angelica McDaniel, Executive Vice President of Daytime Programs at CBS Entertainment.
“Eve is an accomplished and dynamic performer, musician, wife and step mother who fits in seamlessly, while also adding a new layer to the show as we continue to evolve season to season.”
