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

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

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

A new report indicates that Julie Chen is about to walk away from her co-hosting gig on The Talk in light of the allegations against her husband, recently-ousted CBS chief Les Moonves.

But despite her public support towards him, HollywoodLife reported via an insider at CBS that she is actually 'completely heartbroken by the humiliating allegations against her husband which have preceded his leaving CBS. Page Six says their source close to the situation said Julie has every intention of standing by Les Moonves. "I wouldn't be surprised if [CBS] asked her not to come back", the source said.

We don't have an answer yet, but we do know that Julie Chen-Mooves is leaving The Talk.

"Big Brother" ends its season on September 26. "Good night." Usually, she leaves out "Moonves".

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. He's always been a kind, decent and moral human being.

CBS or Julie Chen have not confirmed her departure from The Talk. I fully support my husband and stand behind him and his statement'.

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's Talk co-hosts previously discussed their longtime leader's absence on the September 10 premiere, with Sharon Osbourne confessing, "It's very embarrassing and upsetting to have to talk about [Julie's] husband, but... we feel it's right".

CBS has remained silent on Julie Chen Moonves' future on The Talk.

Chen, 48, did not directly address any of the controversy surrounding her husband or his departure from CBS as chairman and CEO.
