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

According to CNN's Brian Stelter, Chen will deliver a video message tomorrow to confirm her departure from CBS's midday roundtable show.

When Moonves, the powerful chairman and CEO of CBS, was accused of sexual misconduct in the pages of The New Yorker in late July, Chen publicly supported her husband and said she would only issue one statement on the topic.

Chen recently signed off as "Julie Chen Moonves" on "Big Brother" - the first time she's used his name on-air since marrying him in 2004.

Chen was absent Monday for the season premiere of "The Talk".

Chen's decision is effective immediately, according to two sources close to her.

Chen's husband Les Moonves resigned as head of CBS last week following numerous allegations of sexual assault and harassment earlier this summer. The View's Behar and her fellow panelists concluded last week that Chen will have a tough time returning to The Talk, what with that show being a topical talk show and #MeToo movement being such a big cultural story.

When Chen did not appear on Monday's episode, speculation increased about her exit.

Page Six says it is unclear whether or not Julie leaving The Talk was her idea or if she was asked to step down. In a statement, she said she would be off for a few days, but she did not address the allegations against her husband.

'He has always been a kind, decent and moral human being.

The TV titan had been married to Nancy Wieselfeld for 26 years when he left her for TV host Chen. Sharon Osbourne led a 10-minute segment in which she spoke about the CBS chief's explosive departure, saying that, though Chen was a friend she admired, they had to "talk about her husband". I fully support my husband, and I stand behind him and his statement'.
