Julie Chen Announces She’s Leaving ‘The Talk’
Julie Chen is leaving CBS's "The Talk." In a videotaped message played at the end of Tuesday's show, of which she's been a panelist since it began eight years ago, she addressed audiences and her co-hosts in a taped farewell message. "Right now, I need to spend more time at home with my husband and our young son," she tearfully said. By taping her goodbye message, she avoided a potentially awkward conversation on live TV about the allegations of sexual misconduct against her husband, ousted CBS honcho Les Moonves.
