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

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

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.

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. Well, we have our answer. She most recently signed off from Big Brother by saying, "I'm Julie Chen Moonves". I will always treasure our friendship, great parenting advice from both, and memories and laughs and private jokes that the three of us have shared.

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

Moreover, Page Six reported that Chen is committed to her marriage and "will 100 percent stay with Les".

Chen will remain on Big Brother for now. At the very least, many people in the industry think it will be next to impossible for Chen to resume her day job on The Talk.

If not, we're not going to take a risk because he missed a lot of games and we have a lot of games to play. Spurs will have Heung-min Son available after his lengthy stint on global duty with South Korea.

By signing off through a videotaped message, Chen will sidestep any awkward conversations with her longtime co-hosts.

"I want to say that whatever times I've had of hardship over the past eight years, Julie has always been there for me", Osbourne added. "I will be back soon and will see you Thursday night on Big Brother".

"When she'll depart the show is unclear". #TheTalk cast cry too at Julie's video message as they watch it for the first time from the set of #BigBrother where she deliver the message live.

Moonves has denied the allegations, but he agreed to donate $20 million from any severance benefits he may receive from CBS to the Me Too movement.

Taking to Twitter in light of the allegations, Julie wrote: 'Leslie is a good man and a loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader. I fully support my husband and stand behind him and his statement'. 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.
