Julie Chen, Wife of Les Moonves, to Leave ‘The Talk’ on CBS

Les Moonves and Julie Chen Moonves attend the 2017 CBS Upfront

Les Moonves and Julie Chen Moonves attend the 2017 CBS Upfront

As we saw last Thursday, she showed up and hosted as usual (aside from her new sign-off as "Julie Chen Moonves"). With Les battling these misconduct allegations, reports claimed that Julie's priorities changed, with "clearing her husband's name" and tending to her son, 8-year-old Charlie Moonves, suddenly becoming her main focus.

Although Chen is leaving The Talk, as of now it looks as though she will be staying on as host of Big Brother.

CBS would not comment.

When The New Yorker first reported the bombshell allegations in July, Chen said, "Leslie is a good man and a loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader".

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

Ms. Chen hasn't been on "The Talk" since Mr. Moonves resigned under pressure from CBS's board and controlling shareholder National Amusements Inc. I can only surmise they are surfacing now for the first time, decades later, as part of a concerted effort by others to destroy my name, my reputation, and my career. "Goodnight", she said when addressing viewers.

But it was widely viewed as a result of the harassment and assault allegations detailed in Farrow's stories.

Chen is also host of another CBS staple, "Big Brother".

In addition, the Big Brother host did not appear on the Season 9 premiere of the show, which aired on September 10.

Chen's continued absence was not addressed by her fellow panelists on The Talk or by guest host Carnie Wilson, per TV Line.

A date for her exit hasn't been set yet, the insider said, but sources speculate she'll step down in the next couple of weeks.

Chen then turned her attention to her co-hosts, telling Eve, "You're the newest one at the table, but I feel like I've known you forever".

While the 70th annual Emmy Awards were airing live on NBC, CNN dropped a bomb exclusive about Julie Chen leaving The Talk. She got emotional saying, "I have been at "The Talk" since the day it started nine years ago, and the cast crew and staff have become family to me over the years".
