Julie Chen leaving ‘The Talk’ after husband Les Moonves exits CBS

Julie Chen hosts Big Brother 20

Julie Chen has officially left The Talk amid her husband Les Moonves' firing from CBS over allegations of sexual misconduct.

"I have been at The Talk since the day it started nine years ago and the cast, crew and staff have become family over the years." she said.

The veteran talk show host is leaving the talk show she co-founded, which debuted in October 2010.

Chen will address her exit, which is effective immediately, in a videotaped message that will air on Tuesday's episode. "We thank you for eight years of dear friendship and all you did to help the success of the show", Gilbert said.

CBS said in a statement that its executives were grateful for Chen's "incredible energy, grace and professionalism" and wished her "all the best in everything she does". "I know this show and the sisterhood it stands for will live on for many, many more years to come".

But she has publicly offered support for her husband since the allegations first surfaced in a story published by The New Yorker in July.

Moonves, CBS' longtime CEO, was sacked on September 9 after a second wave of sexual misconduct allegations came to light. "I'm Julie Chen Moonves". When the initial allegations against him surfaced, Chen released a statement via Twitter which read, "I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the late '90s, and I have been married to him for nearly 14 years".

One of the biggest news from Nintendo Direct was the reveal that Animal Crossing is coming to Nintendo Switch . Save data backups have been a consistent request from Switch users since the console launched in March 2017.

Chen did return to CBS a few days later to host Big Brother and raised quite a few eyebrows when she said, "From outside the "Big Brother" house, I'm Julie Chen Moonves".

However, Chen is believed to be maintaining her role as host of "Big Brother". Co-host Sharon Osbourne said in the season premiere that "obviously the man has a problem", referring to Moonves.

Talk show host Wendy Williams was the latest to weigh in on Chen's decision to stand by her man at the cost of her career at CBS.

On Sept. 9, the New Yorker reported the women's accusations, which include Moonves allegedly forcing them to perform oral sex. In a pre-recorded video message filmed on the set of "Big Brother", Chen appeared on the show for the first time in over a week to confirm her departure.

Moonves had denied the allegations.

Chen and Moonves have been married since 2004 and have one son, 8-year-old Charlie, together. He has always been a kind, decent and moral human being.
