This is happy news. “The Talk” has named rapper and actress #Eve as a co-host to the CBS daytime talk show.
Eve steps into the permanent role following the departure of Aisha Tyler, who made the decision to leave at the end of last season to focus on her other television and film projects, including CBS’ “Criminal Minds.” “It is a new career move for me,” Eve tells Variety. “I am interested in hosting, and specifically on this show, because I feel as though I can express myself in a way people haven’t seen me before, and be able to engage in great discussions [and] have some fun. I’m just in a place in my life where I was looking for a platform to express myself.” “The Talk’s” panel has remained pretty stable during its eight-season run, though in its earlier days, the show had featured other co-hosts, including Marissa Jaret Winokur, Leah Remini, and Holly Robinson Peete.
Congrats to Eve on getting the permanent position at the table. I might actually start watching it now that she is on the show.
