Rapper and actress Eve can now add the title of talk show host to her growing resume. She will now be a permanent co-host of CBS daytime talk show, The Talk, replacing the slot vacated by Aisha Tyler.

Variety writes:

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.”

Eve rounds out the panel that includes show creator Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, and Sheryl Underwood.

Since Tyler’s exit, “The Talk” has featured many guest co-hosts during its current eighth season. Insiders say “hundreds of names” were considered before Eve landed the full-time gig. Eve was a standout and proved she was the right fit earlier this month when she co-hosted for a week, impressing viewers, the network, and the cast.

The outlet spoke with the newly-minted host, who says she is both excited and nervous, still intends to act and make music in her spare time.
