"The real, real, real reaction was, 'Oh my god, oh sh*t!'" Eve told ET's Kevin Frazier after the show. "Because I live in London [with] my husband and my dog. But at the same time, this is such an amazing opportunity and amazing platform, I would not have missed this for the world."
"I just love the passion, and that somebody's willing to fly from London and be part time with her family," Gilbert said, while Julie Chen reveals it was her own mother who gave Eve the stamp of approval.
"She said, 'She has a kind of aura, and [it's not] The Eve Show. She just looked like she fit in,'" Chen explained. "I was like, 'Alright Mama Chen, I'll put the vote in the ballot box.'"
"She had done so many things and now that she wants to take on this arena, I just respect her so much," Osbourne added of her new co-host. "We're all so different, and this brings such a different element to our table... So we love her."
