During the September 10 season premiere, Chen's co-hosts held a conversation on the allegations against Moonves, during which time Sara Gilbert acknowledged that while she "always" supports Chen, this is "an important time in our culture". 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.
Chen will remain on Big Brother for now.
CBS would not comment.
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.
Chen's sign off indicated she is standing by her husband, despite the many allegations against him.
Chen returned to TV Thursday for the first time since Moonves resigned as CEO of CBS following accusations of decades of sexual misconduct at the cable giant.
"To Sara and Sharon, we have been together since day one at the The Talk", she said. Page Six alleges that amid the sexual harassment and assault accusations against her husband Les Moonves, Julie is resigning from her co-host gig.
'Leslie is a good man and a loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader, ' she tweeted. "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", she said from the set of Big Brother.
The source said her exit will take place sometime in the coming weeks.
"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 fully support my husband and stand behind him".
'He has always been a kind, decent and moral human being.
To Sheryl Underwood, she said, "Thank you for being the flawless go-to partner for the last seven years".
It's not a surprising move for Chen considering The Talk is a show where you have to, well, talk about current events.
