CBS Names Eve as Aisha Tyler's Successor on 'The Talk'

Musician and actress Eve has been unveiled as a new permanent host of CBS' "The Talk", joining Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood.

Philly rapper Eve is ready to transition from music to television, as the Ruff Ryder has officially signed on to co-host CBS talk show, The Talk. "The great success of The Talk is due to the undeniable chemistry and bond of friendship between the hosts".

It was after the R&B star cohosted for a week and impressed viewers, the network, and the cast that execs knew she was the right fit for the vacant seat.

"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.

In June, former host Aisha Tyler announced her departure from the show, explaining that she wanted to take time to focus on her other projects and directing career, as the latter is what she "wants to do with the rest of my life".

Eve rose to fame in the late 90's in the world of hip-hop, peaking in 2001 with her Grammy-winning collaboration with Gwen Stefani for her biggest hit, "Let Me Blow Ya Mind".

"Honestly, I am the most excited...", she said during her introduction to the audience.

"I'm always interested in unique and fun parts", Eve told Variety. I started recording a few months ago. "I'm kind of quiet on social media, so this is a fun way for me to be expressive and show people who I am right now". "And the plan was, before this opportunity came up, was to put out some music, which I still plan to do soon". She says, "I am a pretty open book".
