Julie Chen Quits 'The Talk,' Leaving in Wake of Les Moonves Scandal

Julie Chen quits The Talk as she stands by her disgraced hubby

The CBS show's founding co-host will announce her departure on Tuesday's show via a videotaped message, CNN reports.

Her decision comes just days after her husband was forced out at CBS amid multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, including claims of unwanted kissing and touching.

So needless to say Julie is standing by her husband, as indicated by her sign-off from Big Brother last week.

Last week, The View co-hosts all weighed in on Julie Chen's fate, with the consensus being it would be very hard for Julie Chen to return to her seat on the CBS talk show.

The lawsuit seeks $75,000 (€64,000) in compensation and an injunction against Musk to stop further allegations. Mr Unsworth did not take part in the dives but had previously explored the cave complex extensively.

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

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. She also hosts "Big Brother", which ends September 26.

That show of support has many thinking Chen will finish out her Big Brother contract (the summertime show wraps next week) and then exit CBS for good. "I wouldn't be surprised if [CBS] asked her not to come back", the source said.

"I would release a statement saying, 'I feel as though I would be too much of a distraction sitting at the table with the ladies and too much of a distraction for staff and everyone else. I fully support my husband and 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. Sara Gilbert also weighed in, saying that while she loves and supports Chen "always", this is "an important time in our culture". She's hosted the show since 2000.
