Julie Chen to Exit CBS’ ‘The Talk’ on Heels of Moonves Scandal

Julie Chen to Exit CBS’ ‘The Talk’ on Heels of Moonves Scandal

After Julie was again a no-show on Monday's The Talk, the start of the show's second week into its new season, speculation turned to nearly certainty.

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".

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". Chen is expected to announce her decision Tuesday, a source close to the show tells Deadline.

Julie Chen is reportedly leaving "The Talk" after nine seasons. On the day he left CBS, he said "untrue allegations from decades ago are now being made against me that are not consistent with who I am".

The source said her exit will take place sometime in the coming weeks.


She was also absent from "The Talk" Monday, fueling rumors of her departure. She did, however, return to her other CBS show, Big Brother, where she seemed to subliminally support her spouse, signing off at episode's end by referring to herself as "Julie Chen Moonves".

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

Page Six says it is unclear whether or not Julie leaving The Talk was her idea or if she was asked to step down.

It is said to have been the first time Chen has used her married name on the show shes been hosting for almost two decades. "I fully support my husband and stand behind him and his statement". She's hosted the show since 2000.

Reps for CBS and Chen did not get back to us.
