Eve is a Grammy-winning musician who has released four studio albums, 32 singles, and collaborated with the likes of Alicia Keys, Missy Elliot, The Roots, and Dr. Dre. She fills the seat left empty by Aisha Tyler, who announced her departure in June after six seasons.
Tyler explained she decided to leave to work more as a director on feature films. She told the audience, "I got this opportunity to do something I’ve always dreamed of doing, which is to direct my first feature film. … It was one of the best experiences of my life. I loved directing. I loved being there every day. … I know, I think, that that was what I wanted to do with the rest of my life, that that was what I wanted to put my energy into."
Former co-hosts of The Talk include Marissa Jaret Winokur (Season 1), Leah Remini (Seasons 1–2) and Holly Robinson Peete (Seasons 1–2).
