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

Julie Chen is expected to announce Tuesday that she is leaving the CBS talk show after nine seasons, effective immediately, a person familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly confirmed to USA TODAY late Monday. "Good night." Usually, she leaves out "Moonves".

Last week viewers were thrown when Chen closed "Big Brother" by using her full-married name, Julie Chen Moonves, clearly showing support for her husband Les Moonves, who has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women. This comes just days after Julie signed off from Big Brother as "Julie Chen Moonves", a move that showed that she was fully supporting her husband and ousted CBS CEO, Moonves.

At the very least, many people in the industry think it will be next to impossible for Chen to resume her day job on The Talk.

Page Six alleges that amid the sexual harassment and assault accusations against her husband Les Moonves, Julie is resigning from her co-host gig.

According to new reports, Julie Chen wants to leave The Talk.

Chen is expected to remain on "Big Brother", at least until the show's season finale on September 26.

Chen, 48, did not directly address any of the controversy surrounding her husband or his departure from CBS as chairman and CEO.

"I would release a statement saying, 'I feel as though I would be too much of a distraction sitting at the table with the ladies and too much of a distraction for staff and everyone else". He has always been a kind, decent and moral human being. 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".

The TV titan had been married to Nancy Wieselfeld for 26 years when he left her for TV host Chen.
