Julie Chen Leaving The Talk; Will She Also Leave Big Brother?

Julie Chen quits The Talk as she stands by her disgraced hubby

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. As previously reported, Chen's decision to sign off of last Thursday's Big Brother with a not-so-subtle declaration of support for her disgraced husband made it next to impossible for her to resume her day job, though she is expected to stay on as host of the hit reality series.

Chen was absent Monday for the season premiere of "The Talk".

There was speculation about Chen's future on The Talk when she again was a no-show on today's episode.

Julie Chen is leaving her duties as a co-host of "The Talk", days after her husband, Les Moonves, resigned as the CEO of CBS after sexual misconduct allegations, according to a report.

Chen will remain on Big Brother for now.




One insider told the outlet that it's still not clear if she is leaving on her own accord or not but they "wouldn't be surprised" if she was actually asked to quit.

Chen, 48, did not directly address any of the controversy surrounding her husband or his departure from CBS as chairman and CEO. When a second wave emerged earlier this month, in a report by journalist Ronan Farrow, she did not appear on the show.

Back in July, Chen came out and immediately supported her husband when the first allegations about sexual misconduct arose.

"He has always been a kind, decent and moral human being", Chen wrote in his defense this summer.

The TV titan had been married to Nancy Wieselfeld for 26 years when he left her for TV host Chen. Leslie is a good man and a loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader. I fully support my husband, and I stand behind him and his statement'.
