Julie Chen Is Leaving 'The Talk' Amidst Les Moonves Controversy

Julie Chen Is Leaving 'The Talk' Amidst Les Moonves Controversy

Here's what we know about her upcoming exit from the show.

Julie Chen has other talk show hosts talking, even if she's not talking herself.

Chen announced she'd be "taking a few days off from "The Talk" to be with my family" after Moonves resigned from CBS amid sexual-misconduct allegations. Chen did indeed return to Big Brother, but she ended the episode by telling viewers, "I'm Julie Chen Moonves".

According to TooFab, Williams continued by saying it will be impossible for Chen to work with longtime Talk co-host Sharon Osbourne, who last week said the fallen Les Moonves "obviously has a problem".

Mashable has contacted CBS for further comment.

However, Chen is believed to be maintaining her role as host of "Big Brother".

A-Fortress instant-base will be popping up soon in Fortnite
It is set to be a much bigger fort than the current port-a-fort provides but the exact design and layout has not been revealed. Port-A-Fort was recently upgraded from Epic to Rare rarity, and now we know why the Fortnite developer did that.

Les Moonves (R), president and CEO of CBS Corporation, and his wife Julie Chen pose during the premiere of the CBS science fiction television series "Extant" at the Samuel Oschin Space Shuttle Endeavour Display Pavilion in Los Angeles, California, U.S., June 16, 2014.

On Sept. 9, the New Yorker reported the women's accusations, which include Moonves allegedly forcing them to perform oral sex. Chen has supported her husband throughout the controversy, releasing a statement in July in which she called Moonves a "good man and a loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader".

The move isn't a surprising one, given The Talk's dedication to discussing issues exactly like the scandal Chen and her husband are now embroiled in.

CBS said last Sunday that it takes the allegations very seriously and that its board of directors is investigating. He's always been a kind, decent and moral human being.

Chen very publicly stood up for her husband by signing off from last Thursday's "Big Brother" by saying "I'm Julie Chen Moonves". "I fully support my husband".
