Eve announces she's leaving The Talk
"This is one of the hardest decisions in the world because I wish I hated one of you, but I don't."
"It's been a crazy year, obviously, for all of us," said Eve, who lives in England with her husband, Maximillion Cooper. "And I've been 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."
Eve further explained that her decision had nothing to do with her relationship with costars Share Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, and Carrie Ann Inaba, whom she raved about. Marie Osmond, who was on the show for one season, announced that she was leaving in September.
"This is one of the hardest decisions in the world because I wish I hated one of you, but I don't," Eve said. "I wish I hated someone on the set, it would make it so much easier to blame [someone]. I have had the most beautiful experience. I've grown as a woman, as a person. I've said it once, I’ll say it again, I never thought that being on a talk show would be this much of an opening of my spirit, soul, personality, everything. Sitting on stage with all you women has been the best thing ever. I love you guys."
The coronavirus pandemic played a big role in her decision. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced Sunday a that a second national shutdown will begin this week.
"We're on another lockdown from Thursday, and that's another reason why," Eve said. "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."
