We’re totally into this!
CBS’ The Talk has been without a co-host since the end of the summer after Aisha Tyler announced her departure from the talk show, but we’re now learning that hip-hop star and actress Eve, real name Eve Jeffers Cooper, has been selected to fill the vacant slot!
The former “pitbull in a skirt” made her official debut today joining her co-hosts Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, and Sheryl Underwood.
“I think what I’m looking forward to the most is showcasing my personality and who I am now as a woman,” Eve told Deadline about her new gig. “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.”
“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 adds. “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.”
Congrats to Eve!
