Eve is officially taking her talents to day time television. She made her debut on Tuesday as co-host of CBS’ The Talk.
The emcee is replacing Aisha Tyler, who recently left The Talk to concentrate on her directing and acting career. Eve joins Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood on the CBS daytime show.
The Philadelphia bred rapper broke out in 1999 as the lone woman in Hip Hop clique Ruff Ryders (DMX, The Lox, Swizz Beatz).
CBS Entertainment Executive Vice President of Daytime Programs Angelica McDaniel said in a statement.
We are thrilled to welcome Eve to the table as she brings a fun and fresh perspective to our already diverse panel. 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.
The Talk has had a difficult year since Tyler left. Unlike its counterpart, The View which sees hosts change regularly, the panel has remained relatively similar for years. Eve will bring a stability to the situation and should flourish on day time.
