Julie Chen Leaving 'The Talk' After Husband Les Moonves' Exit From CBS


Moreover, Page Six reported that Chen is committed to her marriage and "will 100 percent stay with Les". When a second wave emerged earlier this month, in a report by journalist Ronan Farrow, she did not appear on the show. Two days after Moonves stepped down, her co-hosts - including Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, and Eve -didn't shy away from talking about it, saying they supporting a transparent investigation.

Chen also hosts CBS' Big Brother, a role she has fulfilled since the series premiered in 2000.

Last week viewers were thrown when Chen closed "Big Brother" by using her full-married name, Julie Chen Moonves, clearly showing support for her husband Les Moonves, who has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women.

A rep for CBS declined to comment on reports about Chen's departure published by CNN and the New York Post. She's hosted the show since 2000.

"He was asked not to come, so it's unlikely either of them will attend".

CBS did not have any Emmy parties scheduled, although its cable sister channel Showtime threw a bash to celebrate its nominations.

Taking to Twitter in light of the allegations, Julie wrote: 'Leslie is a good man and a loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader. He's always been a kind, decent and moral human being. "I fully support my husband".

In a statement, she said she would be off for a few days, but she did not address the allegations against her husband. Regarding Moonves, Osbourne maintained, "Obviously the man has a problem". So right now the answer is presumably no, Julie Chen isn't quitting Big Brother.

Moonves' three-paragraph statement said, "untrue allegations from decades ago" are being made against him and are not consistent with who he is.
