Eve TheTalk

Eve Jihan Jeffers-Cooper, right, has stepped in to replace Aisha Tyler as full-time host on CBS daytime talk show 'The Talk'.

The 39-year-old rapper/actress officially joined the show following the departure of Tyler, who left at the end of last season to focus on her role on CBS’ Criminal Minds and other projects.

The "Who's That Girl" hitmaker, who previously filled in as guest co-host, joins longtime co-hosts Sharon Osbourne, Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood, and Julie Chen.

Previous hosts have included Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini.

"Honestly, I am the most excited. My face hurts from smiling," Eve said about the full-time hosting opportunity. "I am so honored to be here with you ladies. Thank you so much for having me."

Maximillion & Eve Cooper

In a chat with People magazine, Eve reveals she was initially reluctant to join the Los Angeles-based show because she resides in London with her husband Maximillion Cooper.

"When I first got the first call in London, my manager told me about the opportunity, and at first I was like, 'I don't know, because it's far from from home,'" she says. "But the last few months I've been feeling that I want to join something. This opportunity came and it's something new, something exciting. It's a new chapter in my life, so why not?"

Maximillion & Eve Cooper

Eve married the British entrepreneur in Ibiza in June 2014, after dating since 2010. She happily assumed the role of stepmom to his four children.

Maximillion & Eve Cooper

"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," CBS exec Angelica McDaniel, who oversees daytime programming at the network, tells Variety.

“It is a new career move for me,” Eve tells Variety. "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. I’m just in a place in my life where I was looking for a platform to express myself."

Eve says she will continue to make time for music, although it isn't clear who her fan base is.

"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."

  • Karen Brady

  • Karen Brady

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Congrats Eve. I've always liked her.

  • imright

    i love Eve ?? always been my fave !!! ?

  • JRock

    I'm glad to see Sheryl Underwood has found some steady work. I remember seeing her on some show a few years ago and she was talking about how financially broken she was and how she could not even afford a car and the show she was on actually gifted her with a car at the end of the show. She was in tears when they presented her with the keys.

  • imright

    *Harlem shakes *Eves that girl.....

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Everybody is somebodies throwaway whether we choose to believe so or not.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Whelp... We can't blame Eve for taking advantage of an opportunity. She done hit the jackpot!!!

  • imright

    she said they are trying

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Something is amiss in the waters. Why would a happily married woman leave her billionaire husband for a job? Nope I ain't buying it.

  • You Could Never

    Eve was in a long term relationship with a man whose nickname is Sleezy J who had and still has a drug problem. Snorted up a whole lot of money and his career and is now selling his soul to mona scott young to eat.

    I think its safe to say HIS ass was the throwaway in that situation. I could be wrong.

  • brownisback

    Issa yes

  • Ms.Vanilla

    lol, they even had "the taste" but it was cancelled years ago. I loved that show.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I'm happy for Eve! I will definitely tune in for her...

  • i troll it like i see it

    Marriage must be on the skids. Nobody just leaves their family without a care in the world. Her "why not?" attitude is very telling.

  • Hater

    Uh huh aint that so!

  • Dowoop

    Thats what i was thinking. This isnt another state, its a whole other continent.

  • Dowoop

    Me too...I like her.

  • 88

    The black woman and hypocrisy go together like crown and coke.

  • DarkNLovely

    Oh bish stop trying to think of some dumbshid!! MiserableAss!! She can’t have a job?? Or life?? Because she’s married to a rich man??

  • laidbackgal4real

    Eve go head then ???

  • Owww76

    Congrats to the fellow Scorpio EVE! She looks gorgeous as usual.

  • DarkNLovely

    Because women are FREE to do that!!! Being married doesn’t mean your life ends!!! U silly lazy broads wonder y ya ain’t married probably cause of that type of thinking there!!! A lot of married women rather there husbands are dumb rich or not like to work!!! There is Nothing wrong with that. She doesn’t have any kids and she had her own career before she married him!!! She did right by falling back and being a wife and step mother for a few years maybe she misses doing what she loves!! And she’s blessed to have a husband that will support anything she wants to do!! Basically she’s obviously not doing it for the money and if she is maybe it’s becayse she wants her own money!!! U never know what may happen he can leave her dry broke! But u broads would literally sit back n think because a man is rich u don’t have to do nothing!! Stupid!! You should always want to have your own To fall back on!

  • JRock

    Me neither. I smell a divorce.

  • You Could Never

    I guess her being a black female Republican wasnt working out for her. It still might not be. Who knows.

  • IamAllnatural

    Congrats to Eve & she still looks lovely. They are such an odd couple, & it seems that she is realizing that now. I don’t know what rich wife would leave their husband for a job 10 hours away. Things that make you say hmm!?

  • IamAllnatural

    Scorpio ?????

  • Owww76

    Yup! Just celebrated my b-day last Monday!

  • hottlanta

    Her husband stack wives. She is wife #4.

  • Elevated Soul

    Go Eve....Eve is like that cool big sis in my head.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    First of all who is " you broads?."... I am happily married and work every day. I swear some people get so emotional on these blogs. It's not that serious.

  • Psychic Lulu

    Bravo, Eve. Get that irreconcilable differences payout boo

  • hottlanta

    Everytime I tell women that they get mad at me. You were dump or you dumped somebody to get with the person you are with now.

  • shelly

    I’m not body language expert but the picture with her and the kids says a whole lot and not good.

  • TheOwley

    Good for Eve but what's the deal with them. When they got married, he was announced as a billionaire but his net worth is only $50M. Then I heard she was pregnant prior to the marriage. No mention of a child.

  • Marlika

    I've always like Eve.

    I never cared for the Talk. Sheryl Underwood irks my soul. Her loud ghetto gummy ass is too damn much. ??

  • JRock

    It really isn't that serious. We gave our opinion. That's all it was. Shem a.k.a. DarknLovely must be going through PMS.

  • Karen Brady

    Lol

  • Karen Brady

    Chile too many "The's" for me :-)

  • Karen Brady

    Get it:-)

  • Karen Brady

    :-(.

  • Karen Brady

    Umm. ..While we're here..Is it a wrap for DMX? I know he did one of those rehab shows a while back but where my dogg at?

  • Karen Brady

    I can take her in sound bites basically.

  • Karen Brady

    Oh. *Looks away*

  • Bashi22

    Hmmm how this marriage thing is going to workout Eve.

  • Karen Brady

    Aww look at your paw prints..very cool:-)

  • Karen Brady

    Awww....shyt. I hear footsteps..

  • EMILY POST

    Eve is a great example of a black female growing and elevating herself.

  • Bashi22

    Girl I’m saying that too oh well in 2018 look out for a divorce announcement

  • Karen Brady

    You can only FaceTime but so much and then shyt gets real. Ijs.

  • i troll it like i see it

    It's the distance.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Exactly, she moved to London to be with him for the marriage, now she's leaving London to take up full residency in another country, most likely because of the marriage as well but this time it's because it's over. Now, is he picking up and following her here? There's no mention of that.

  • Bashi22

    Correct the human presence is still needed for touch and caresses lol ?

  • RICHIE_RICH

    All good baby

  • Malcom Flex

    Prolly better than yours since you aren't married.

  • Malcom Flex

    Good for her better than being a Mary J or Jill S marryied down to scrubs she looks great.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy??

    Speak for yourself. Stop generalizing black women. I don't approve of interracial relationships from black men or women. I don't see any logical reason why a black person would want to lay down with a white person.

  • Blak

    Sounds like her marriage is DONE...who is leaving their family to host a show across the pond on another continent? Unless I hate my family it wouldn't even be a thought in my mind to leave them

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy??

    You like cave broads though. That alone makes any thing you say irrelevant. Brothers needs to start practing WTF they preach! Stop sweeping behind white men and cuffing the dogs in lipstick they don't want!

  • V Dubb

    Glowing all the way up....OK Eve!!!

  • IamAllnatural

    Ikr, his daughters look like they trying to stand as far away from Eve while staying in the picture.

  • Malcom Flex

    WIFE is always better than being a baby mama or side side WIVES are protected by LAW

  • Dahl

    I wonder if one of the stipulations to marrying that man was she wouldn't get to have children. Unless her "womb is so polluted" that she's unable to conceive/carry a child, I can't imagine happily raising 4 of some other woman's children and not having at least one of my own. Maybe the tick of her biological clock is causing a rift and she's seeking solice on her own soil...

  • dontgetblocked

    Eve went from the hood ... to the upper class of London. I wonder about their marriage. I would feel weird being the only black face in the family.

  • dontgetblocked

    Not that pampered lifestyle she's got set up. I would be holding it down at home.

  • NicoleZee

    Money, or thinking a guy has money, always wins. Look at men like P. Diddy and Fetty Wap. They each have about 143 children and women throw themselves at them. A smart woman wouldn't believe shit until he's seen an income statement or tax return. Regardless of income, I don't get why anyone wants to deal with someone who has an army base of kids. One is enough, especially when you don't have a spouse or long-term relationship going on. Sad.

  • NicoleZee

    Wow! I thought Eve was the first wife and I just thought he had kids and had never been married. He probably has a gorgeous mistress in another country somewhere. Men have secrets, especially when you barely see them. That long distance relationships bullshit is dumb, either be present for the relationship in the same area or be single. I went through the same shit with a guy, He lived hours from me. Found out he was hiding a wife and a criminal record longer than a giraffe's neck. I moved the hell on. Ridiculous.

  • NicoleZee

    I only watch Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil, and Wendy of course. Everyone else needs to find other jobs because those other shows are boring. I have no idea how they stay on TV. I love Dr. Oz, he gives good health and sex advice, plus he's rather cute for an old dude ;).

  • NicoleZee

    No one wants step kids and no one wants to be a step parent, especially when they don't have kids of their own. people need to realize that when you already have children and you're dating, a person will only "tolerate" your kids because they're with you. That's how a lot of kids get harmed. Very sad.

  • Missy

    Aunty, can i get a read on the body language maam??? & she really looks gorgeous.??..minus the paw tats.??

  • Missy

    "womb is so polluted"

    Wow.

  • Missy

    with a man whose nickname is Sleezy J who had and still has a drug problem.

    ..& has an 'army base' of kids. (Had to NicoleZee??)

  • tintin

    I love everything about Eve. Good for her . She and her husband will make it work

  • Missy

    Brothers need to quit taking on other mens discards, including other Black mens throwaways...

    Is that saying the same thing twice?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The children know what it is. Rich men like him are infamous for trying to wife strippers. I think the saying goes "why pay for the cow when you can get the milk for free."

  • pure_rachet

    I love Eve!! I loved her music. Still won't be watching the show though. I hope she doesn't stick with it and goes back to rapping.

  • Dahl

    Scarface

  • Mrs Mary

    well she can kiss her marriage goodbye thats for sure...i don't know how i feel about this, i love her and think she is sooo classy....but i don't know how i feel about her being on this show...kelly rowland would have been a better fit if you ask me.

  • hottlanta

    She is his first BLACK wife and he is her first WHITE man she has ever been with she said that on Wendy.

  • hottlanta

    It depends on the situation. I was a big fan of this show called Sunday Morning from back in the day. They had a host on there by the name of Charles Kuralt. Come to find out while he was showing us the heartland his mistress was in the van with him and they had a lot of property. Wife found out about all of that land/side chick when he died, sued tried to get it but the judge sided with the side chick. Her wifey status meant nothing

  • pure_rachet

    yep, she's restless

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Wow. I didn't know that about Charles Kuralt. ?

  • pure_rachet

    well damn. Way to put into words what I was thinking. I'm glad I wasn't the one to font it though.

  • pure_rachet

    Happy belated, fellow scorpio

  • pure_rachet

    I do agree with some of darknlovely's post as well as the opposite side but I can't stand when people get all in their feelings on a blog and start calling names. No need for it, we are all here having fun and having opinions. Darknlovely needs some Midol and a nap.

  • pure_rachet

    she's older than I am and I'm not here for a geriatric pregnancy. NOPE.

  • pure_rachet

    Me and the girls used to leave the club turnt and stop at a red light, turn that song up and get out and dance. Lucky we never got DUI's sheesh.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Just bypass it, he/she called me a miserable b*tch when I stated the facts, and that's fine. We all love Eve but facts are facts. Now if it comes out her man is moving out here with her I will gladly stand corrected, but that wasn't mentioned.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Her body language says the marriage is over. She's in the U.S. and he's in London. He likely has a mistress.

  • hottlanta

    Yep, he was getting it in. Check out this from one of my favorite shows where they talk about men who have second families. Scroll down to 2:00 he starts talking about the situation about a well known CBS broadcaster with a side chick/wife didn't know about it but he didn't mention his name. If you know the story you know who he is talking about. She came to court with receipts to show proof the relationship. When she showed pictures herself in the back of that van I was done. You can't find anything online about this situation because they don't want to tarnish his image.

    Kick Rock Troll lol ? funny

  • Malcom Flex

    Hi, hit dog

  • Malcom Flex

    You just changed topic by bringing up white people I notice black fonts at SR do that a lot always bringing up what white people do. Ain't no BW getting that sort of mistress treatment. Yeh I know about that, white women's protection. BW shiz out of luck without marriage.

  • Bashi22

    I’m not married so that hit wasn’t for me go have some warm milk and go to bed.

  • Malcom Flex

    So? That's white folks they protect white women unlike black people.

  • Malcom Flex

    She does look well. Hater's can't stand that, she's not looking kinda tore up like Miss Mary and Jill Scott. Even IF she and her white man break up she glowed up to the maximum tight bod and no kids can get another wealthy male.

  • Malcom Flex

    Go raise your kids property thanks in advance

  • Bashi22

    Hmm “go raise your kids property” what . I don’t have any kids so you are assuming it’s just wrong

  • hottlanta

    I said nothing about Charles being black nor white I was just talking about his wife/wifey status didn't work out so well against the side chick in the court of law. Black men who are wealthy do protect their side chicks. Willie Gary who is a well known lawyer in Florida side chick has a bad azz mansion in the Cascades here she doesn't work. Her/child are doing fine.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Aisha Tyler(Whom I worked with on 'Criminal Minds' right after she left 'The Talk') was a very articulate women. But she NEVER stood up to Sharon Osborne. Eve is the woman to do it and I can't wait!

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Love Eve’s music but she must of woke up and realized that being a bed wrench wasn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I hope she didn’t sign a prenup... but you know she did!

    Didn't she do something with Kelly Rowland a few years back?

  • http://bettybooplover.tumblr.com/ Berry Melon

    I don't watch The Talk, I watch The Real Daytime. I used to watch The View, but some of those women on that panel annoyed me, I prefer TRD. Well that's good because most recently people were saying, where's Eve? But I think they wanted her to rap, not be a TV hostess. Like the woman below me stated, I too am not going to watch the show just because Eve is a hostess. I'll be tuning into TRD, and Wendell Williams.

    Dang! I had completely forgot about Charles Kuralt. He did not look like a player.

  • hottlanta

    Like I always say the ugly one's be getting it in. That was a mess. His wife wanted to die when the verdict came down. She wanted to dig his azz up and kill him herself. I don't wish that on anybody.

  • cheechee1x1

    I remember when the story finally broke. I told the story to an elderly friend who did not believe it until I showed her the news paper article .

  • hottlanta

    Freaked everybody out. I am a news junkie that watches everything 24/7and they don't mention his name at all anymore for being a great journalist or nothing. It is just amazing how they has scrubbed it off the internet like it never happen. Those of us who saw it will never forget it.

  • LordeAmbler

    Phuck eve. Jealous of nicki success. Bish go back to yo family. She look out of place.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I'm happy for her

  • cheechee1x1

    I Too often find that certain articles are literally scrubbed from the internet or push over to page 99. Recently I tried to find that article about Janet Jackson getting diet pills in her maids name without the maids knowledge. This article was on the local news and the tabloids.It has been either scrubbed from the net or hidden on page 800 of the net.
