Julie Chen Skips ‘The Talk’ As Husband Leaves CBS In Disgrace

Les Moonves' wife under attack on social media as she skips show's premiere!

Julie Chen didn’t want to talk about her husband Les Moonves leaving his job running CBS amid multiple accusations of sexual harassment — so “The Talk” host skipped out on the CBS show’s season premiere! Just minutes before the show started, Julie announced: “I am taking a few days off from ‘The Talk’ to be with my family. I will be back soon, and will see you Thursday night on ‘Big Brother.’” The announcement didn’t come as a surprise, though. CBS announced that Les Moonves was leaving the network on Dec. 9, just one day before “The Talk” returned for a new season. And in the hours right after the announcement, Julie was blasted on social media by people accusing her of helping to cover up her husband’s alleged sex attacks — with “Talk” host Sheryl Underwood calling the Moonves accusations “a blessing from God to be unburdened from secrets,” while controversial comedian Kathy Griffin went online with a caustic rant!
