ET spoke with Chen about finding a new co-host in August, just several weeks after Tyler left the show, where she compared the casting process to speed dating.
After a brief guest-hosting stint in October, the daytime talk series has chose to make Grammy-winning artist Eve Jeffers Cooper, known to her fans simply as "Eve", the fifth co-host for Season 8.
Angelica McDaniel, EVP Daytime Programs at CBS Entertainment, said Eve "brings a fun and fresh perspective to our already diverse panel" and will add "a new layer to the show as we continue to evolve season to season". "The great success of The Talk is due to the undeniable chemistry and bond of friendship between the hosts". Eve also acted in the "Barbershop" feature film franchise as well as starring in her own self-titled sitcom for the defunct UPN in 2003-06. She has guest-starred on the talk show in recent weeks as well.
It sounds like the multi-hyphenate will be pretty busy with not only her new hosting role, but also as a singer and actress.
