Similar to last week’s episode, in a pre-taped episode of Big Brother that aired Wednesday night, the host greeted viewers by once again saying:

“Good evening, I’m Julie Chen Moonves.”

As we reported on Tuesday, the journalist announced she is leaving The Talk in a pre-taped message.

The message is clear. She’s standing by her man.

Julie Chen Will Remain As Host Of ‘Big Brother’ — And Here’s Why…

Here To Stay

Julie Chen Will Remain The Host Of CBS' 'Big Brother'

Big Brother fans, you can exhale now.

On Tuesday, Julie Chen announced that she is officially leaving The Talk amid sexual misconduct allegations against her husband Les Moonves. Chen cited wanting to be home with her son and husband during this time as reason for her exit.

But a CBS insider source confirmed to TMZ that the longtime host of Big Brother isn’t going anywhere.

So why leave The Talk and not Big Brother?

Well for one, CBS wants Chen to stay. The source shared that the network does not want to punish the host for her husband’s alleged behavior, adding they reportedly didn’t even ask her to leave The Talk, but that the decision was made completely on her own.

The insider shares that Julie wants to finish out this season of BB and return for season 21.

But if we’re being honest here, it makes sense that the 48-year-old TV host would choose to remain on the scripted Big Brother. The roundtable talk show she departed from frequently discusses sexual harassment and this would create, uh, uncomfortable situations for Chen, to say the least.

Guess we’ll still be seeing Mrs. Moonves on our small screens for a bit longer!

Howard Stern SLAMS Julie Chen, ‘The Talk’, & The Emmys For Their Les Moonves Non-Coverage

Howard Stern VS Julie Chen!

Stern Slams Mrs. Les Moonves & 'The Talk'

Annoyed with how Julie Chen is responding to the allegations against her husband? You aren’t alone.

Former shock jock Howard Stern, who recently tackled the controversy with a Les Moonves sock puppet, went on the attack on his Sirius XM radio show Tuesday morning.

Video: Watch Julie Announces She’s Leaving ‘The Talk’

He railed against Julie for standing by her man AND against the show for staying surprisingly quiet about the whole mess:

“I hear in the news that Julie Chen resigned from the TV show The Talk, and then you go, ‘Well, their show is called The Talk but they don’t talk about this. Can you believe Julie sticking with him? What the f**k. It’s just really weird. It’s insulting to the victims.”

The Talk is on CBS, the network of which Moonves was, until recently, the CEO, AND their colleague is personally involved.

It can’t be an easy thing to talk about.

Still, many fans naturally expected the ladies to have an open, frank conversation about this like they have so many other personal matters.

Howard wasn’t done. He also took a shot at the Emmys for not specifically joking about Moonves:

“It’s the Emmys. It’s about television. What’s the biggest story in television? The fact that the president of CBS had to resign. Me Too is in the news. They talk about Me Too, but they don’t talk about Les. I mean, my goodness. That means they’re afraid of him…

To not make a joke, one mention? The guy was uninvited 24 hours before the Emmys aired, and there’s no joke about Les Moonves. The Emmys should’ve talked about it a little bit.”

Do YOU agree with Stern?

Is everyone afraid of Les Moonves??

This is it.

After sending the strong message on last week’s Big Brother that she was standing by her man, CBS honcho Les Moonves, amid sexual misconduct allegations and subsequent firing, Julie Chen is now officially leaving The Talk.

And she’s not even there to talk about it!

“Right now, I need to spend more time at home with my husband and our young son. So I’ve decided to leave The Talk.”

The plan, as of this writing, is for Julie to make the announcement Tuesday morning via a taped video piece on the show.

How… anticlimactic!

No fond farewell for the moderator of The Talk, who has been with the show for a decade – since its inception.

A Chen-Moonves source wants us to believe it was her decision to walk away from the show, while also revealing that she will remain on as host of Big Brother.

One of the sources tells CNN:

“She has decided that her main focus needs to be clearing her husband’s name from accusations made 25-30 years ago and tending to her son.”

THAT characterization is false, though.

Julie’s husband, Les Moonves, was recently fired by CBS as their CEO after more than a dozen women alleged sexual assault and harassment. Some of the incidents happened as recently as the early 2000s.

A sad situation all around.

“In addition to my statement, I would like to say this has been a very difficult week. A lot of people have been hurt by this. I will say I’m proud of the show we made. This show has always been about diversity, love and inclusion. And it’s sad to see it end in this way. I’m sad for the people who lost their jobs in the process.
