Julie Chen Reportedly Quitting 'The Talk' Amid Husband Les Moonves' Scandal

Julie Chen Reportedly Quitting 'The Talk' Amid Husband Les Moonves' Scandal

Chairman and Chief Executive Leslie Moonves, who last week resigned in the midst of sexual-harassment allegations, will quit her role as a host on the network's daytime talk show "The Talk", people familiar with the matter said.

Chen stayed on The Talk after the first wave of allegations came in July, all while publicly defend her husband.

Julie Chen is leaving her CBS hosting job at The Talk in support of her shamed husband Les Moonves.

Despite her departure from "The Talk", Chen will reportedly still host the CBS reality series "Big Brother". The View's Behar and her fellow panelists concluded last week that Chen will have a tough time returning to The Talk, what with that show being a topical talk show and #MeToo movement being such a big cultural story.

Mr Musk later accused Mr Unsworth of moving to Thailand to "be with a bride who was about 12 years old". Mr Unsworth did not take part in the dives but had previously explored the cave complex extensively.

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. He has always been a kind, decent and moral human being. Moonves has denied the allegations.

The source said her exit will take place sometime in the coming weeks. I fully support my husband, and I stand behind him and his statement'. "Some of you may be aware of what's been going on in my life the past few days", she said. During the September 10 season premiere, Chen's co-hosts held a conversation on the allegations against Moonves, during which time Sara Gilbert acknowledged that while she "always" supports Chen, this is "an important time in our culture".

A top PR exec slammed Chen late last week as "complicit" after she signaled support of her accused sexual abuser husband by using his last name when she signed off of Big Brother. A source told the publication that while it's unclear whether it was her decision or not to step down from the show, they "wouldn't be surprised" if she was asked to leave.
