The plan, as of this writing, is for Julie to make the announcement Tuesday morning via a taped video piece on the show.
Chen announced September 10, she "was taking a few days off" from The Talk to be with her family, the day after her husband Les Moonves was ousted as chairman and CEO of CBS amid another wave of sexual misconduct allegations.
But despite her public support towards him, HollywoodLife reported via an insider at CBS that she is actually 'completely heartbroken by the humiliating allegations against her husband which have preceded his leaving CBS. A source told the publication that while it's unclear whether it was her decision or not to step down from the show, they "wouldn't be surprised" if she was asked to leave.
Earlier this week Chen chose not to fill her regular spot as a panelist on The Talk in the aftermath of her husband's departure, opting for the solo gig on the reality program instead. Chen did indeed return to Big Brother, but she ended the episode by telling viewers, "I'm Julie Chen Moonves".
A CBS spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment Monday night.
Julie Chen is leaving CBS' The Talk.
'Leslie is a good man and a loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader, ' she tweeted. He's always been a kind, decent and moral human being. On the show, her fellow co-hosts reacted to the news. "I fully support my husband and stand behind him". On the day he left CBS, he said "untrue allegations from decades ago are now being made against me that are not consistent with who I am". In the past, she had not used his last name.
