Julie Chen leaving 'The Talk' following Les Moonves' exit

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

Julie Chen is sticking by her disgraced hubby, ex-CBS honcho Les Moonves, and giving up her job as a host on the network's "The Talk".

Chen did not address her husband's resignation during the broadcast.

Julie Chen has other talk show hosts talking, even if she's not talking herself.

Chen will remain on Big Brother for now. "Some of you may be aware of what's been going on in my life the past few days", she said.

Page Six reported on Monday evening that she was leaving the show, but said "a date for her exit hasn't been set yet".

CBS or Julie Chen have not confirmed her departure from The Talk. She signed off for the first time as Julie Chen Moonves, in an apparent show of solidarity.

Julie Chen did return to live TV last week to helm the double eviction episode of Big Brother.

Page Six says it is unclear whether or not Julie leaving The Talk was her idea or if she was asked to step down.

"He has always been a kind, decent and moral human being", Chen wrote in his defense this summer.

It is said to have been the first time Chen has used her married name on the show shes been hosting for almost two decades. I fully support my husband, and I stand behind him and his statement'.

"The Talk" co-host released a statement when Moonves was ousted, stating that she planned to be with her family but would be on-air in time for 'Big Brother.

In the statement, which she tweeted out, she said, "Leslie is a good man and a loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader".

Talk show host Wendy Williams was the latest to weigh in on Chen's decision to stand by her man at the cost of her career at CBS.
