Eve, whose full name is Eve Jeffers Cooper, replaces Aisha Tyler on the show. The Grammy winner is best known for her hit "Let Me Blow Ya Mind," a duet with Gwen Stefani, her TV sitcom "Eve" and appearances in the "Barbershop" films.

Angelica McDaniel, an executive vice president at CBS, called Eve an "accomplished and dynamic performer, musician, wife and stepmother" who will add "a new layer to the show as we continue to evolve season to season."

Shakira postpones tour to next year

NEW YORK | Shakira is postponing her European tour until next year after suffering a vocal cord hemorrhage.

The 40-year-old Colombian sensation took to Twitter on Tuesday to apologize to her fans, saying she has a "heavy heart" but must stop singing to recover.

"All the years I've been signing, I've never been faced with a situation like this," she wrote in statements in both English and Spanish. She says she can't wait to be back onstage and "hear your voices singing along with mine."

Shakira this year released her 11th album, "El Dorado," and her European tour this winter was due to hit Paris, Amsterdam, Madrid, Lisbon, Barcelona, Munich, Milan and Zurich, among other cities.

Two Cents comments for Nov. 15

No more taxes, we cry and still expect more services.

Why should we vote to change and increase the pay for our state Legislature. Politics is a form of community service and there is no reason it can't be done as volunteers.

American corporations have the lowest interest rates to borrow money that I can remember and yet our South Dakota senators think giving them a lower corporate tax rate will spur additional growth and create jobs. It will only create a larger national deficit and a bigger gulf between the haves and have nots.

A bully is an unhappy person inside. The only way they feel good about themselves is to hurt someone else.

The proposed giveaway of city property is not going to the School of Mines, it's going to a private individual who has a business located at the School of Mines. 

If you don't like Two Cents, the solution is simple: don't read it. Many other people do enjoy the daily column in the RC Journal.

My, oh my. Slip a pair of rubber boots over your Gucci shoes and enjoy the wildlife gathered at Canyon Lake while it is still there for us to enjoy.
