Julie Chen Leaves ‘The Talk’ Amid Husband Les Moonves’ Sexual Misconduct Allegations

The Talk host Julie Chen announced she’s leaving the show following husband Les Moonves‘ sexual misconduct allegations. Chen is standing by her man and made an official announcement Tuesday.

It is unclear at the moment if Chen will continue hosting Big Brother but it appears she will stay on board, at least for the short term.

In a statement to The New Yorker, Moonves admitted to acting inappropriately in the past.

“Throughout my time at CBS, we have promoted a culture of respect and opportunity for all employees, and have consistently found success elevating women to top executive positions across our company. I recognize that there were times decades ago when I may have made some women uncomfortable by making advances,” he said.

“Those were mistakes, and I regret them immensely. But I always understood and respected — and abided by the principle — that ‘no’ means ‘no,’ and I have never misused my position to harm or hinder anyone’s career. This is a time when we all are appropriately focused on how we help improve our society, and we at CBS are committed to being part of the solution,” he continued.
