Aisha Tyler still loves and supports her family on The Talk!

The 47-year-old actress and TV personality announced her decision to leave the show after six years last June, but she’s kept up with her former co-hosts and watched as singer Eve has replaced her.

She spoke with ET’s Cameron Mathison at the Hollywood premiere of Ready Player One on Monday about the former talk show, admitting that she doesn’t get to catch new episodes as often as she’d like due to her Criminal Minds shooting schedule.

“I text with the girls all the time, and I tell them how much I love them and support them,” she said.

Tyler also opened up about her replacement, Eve, saying, “I think Eve’s doing an amazing job and I love that show and I want it to win, so I’m just rooting for them all the time. I think it’s great to have been a part of something special and helped it grow and helped it build up and then to kinda, you know, watch it sail off into the sunset and do magic things while you go do other stuff.”

It was an emotional farewell last year when Tyler left the show, but she got a special surprise from her final episode.

I did get nominated for a [Daytime] Emmy,” she said. “It was last year and actually the episode that I was nominated for was my last episode on The Talk -- which is really, really great.”

Last July, Tyler spoke with ET’s Kevin Frazier about her difficult decision to leave The Talk, saying, "Oh God, it was so tough! It wasn't a decision that was made over night. I mean, I was on the show for six years... It's been such a transformative six years for me and all of us."

Ready Player One hits theaters March 29, while The Talk airs weekdays on CBS.
