"Today is a very big day for us here at The Talk", Julie Chen began, before introducing Eve to audience members and viewers at home.

The Grammy-winning artist, real name Eve Jeffers Cooper, guest hosted during the week of October 30, and it looks like the studio liked her performance, because they asked her on to replace Aisha Tyler. Eve has previously served as a guest co-host on the series, which also features rock matriarch Sharon Osbourne, several times.

According to the Associated Press, EVP Daytime Programs at CBS Entertainment, Angelica McDaniel called Eve an "accomplished and dynamic performer, musician, wife and stepmother" who will add "a new layer to the show as we continue to evolve season to season". She's also appeared in the Barbershop films and the TV show Eve.

"All of them told me that they believed in me, and I believe in them", she told People ahead of her last show in August. 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". "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", Eve told Variety.

Eve said when she was first approached about the new gig, she thought it was ideal but admitted that she had to think about it.

"I've watched the show and the one thing that I liked about it is that all the women are all genuine", she says.
