The Talk has finally named it’s new co-host and it’s none other than Eve. The rapper/actress made her official debut on Tuesday joining Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood on 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.
Since Tyler’s exit, The Talk has featured many guest co-hosts during its current eighth season. Eve joined the ladies the week of October 30th and, according to insiders, blew producers, the cast and audiences away.
“The women were thrilled when they heard Eve would be joining the show and can’t wait to start talking and engaging her in the conversation,” CBS exec Angelica McDaniel, who oversees daytime programming at the network, said in a statement. “Eve is a natural fit with our dynamic group of Daytime Emmy Award-winning hosts, and brings a fresh perspective and bold point of view as an accomplished artist, businesswoman, and wife who is raising four stepchildren and looking to add to her family.”
“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.”
The new gig marks the Grammy-winning artists return to television after starring for three seasons on her self-titled UPN sitcom Eve back in 2003. She made her return to the big screen in 2016 reprising her role in Barbershop: The Next Cut and also announced to HipHollywood that she would be releasing a new album.
Eve told Variety the new gig will not interfere with those plans. “I will definitely make time for acting, if there is time. I’m always interested in unique and fun parts,” Eve reveals. “And music, yes, I’ve already started recording. I started recording a few months ago. And the plan was, before this opportunity came up, was to put out some music, which I still plan to do soon.”
The Philadelphia native, is married to British entrepreneur Maximillion Copper and will now split her time between London and Los Angeles.
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
