Another co-host is leaving The Talk. Eve announced on Monday that she is departing the show after four seasons.
The 41-year-old rapper said she was leaving at the end of December, noting that she can’t host the show from London, England, where she and her husband, Maximillion Cooper, are currently based and that she can’t travel.
She did note how much she loved her fellow co-hosts — Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and Carrie Ann Inaba — and that it was “true love” between them.
“It’s been a crazy year, obviously for all of us,” she said. ” And I’m so grateful that I’m able to stay here in London and do the show, but I can’t see for me, the foreseeable future of traveling back at the moment, and have decided that at the end of December, this will probably be my last time on the show, in this capacity as a host. This is one of the hardest decisions in the world because I wish I hated one of you, but I don’t.”
Eve went on to say, “We’re [England] on another lockdown from Thursday, and that’s another reason, obviously staying home has been such a blessing because my husband and I got to know each other in a different way, a beautiful way. So I want to be closer to him. I want to concentrate on expanding our family, being with my family.”
After Eve thanked the hosts for supporting her decision, Carrie Ann Inaba reacted saying, “Real friends support each other. We all support you.”
“Eve, I love and respect you, always, always. And there is a big place here for you always in my heart. I love you…I just want you to be happy,” added Sharon Osbourne while Sheryl Underwood said “Hurry up so I can be an Auntie.”
Eve responded, “We’re trying, we’re working on it!”
Eve who is the step-mother to four told us in June 2017 she wanted to have kids of her own.
A few months later she was announced as a co-host on The Talk in November 2017 following Aisha Tyler’s departure. Eve’s departure isn’t the first major shake-up on The Talk in recent months. In September, Marie Osmond announced she was leaving the show after just one season.
