Eve aka Eve Jeffers Cooper has officially joined CBS “The Talk” as a new host.
On Tuesday, CBS announced that the Grammy Award winner will join Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood as a new full-time host.
The rapper, who currently lives in London with her husband, Maximilion Cooper said that when she was first approached to host, she thought it would be an ideal position but had to think about it.
“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 home,’” she shared with PEOPLE. “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?”
She adds that The Talk is an important show to have now because of its distinct female point of view on current issues. “And to have such a diverse group of women as well — I think that is very important,” she said.
