Julie Chen and husband Les Moonves are continuing to present a united front amid the disgraced CBS CEO’s sexual assault scandal. The two were snapped while at a Jewish temple in LA, just hours after Julie bid farewell to her seat on The Talk.
The pair, who were joined by their 8-year-old Charlie, appeared in good spirits as they exited the services.
The day before, the Big Brother host said goodbye to her position at The Talk in a tearful pre-taped video.
She began,”I have been at The Talk since the day it started nine years ago, and the cast, crew and staff have become family to me over the years.”
“But 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. I want to thank everyone at the show for our wonderful years together. I will always, always cherish the memories we shared,” she continued, alluding to the allegations being levied against Les.
She ended, “Most important, I want to thank you, the viewers, for allowing me into your home every day. It was a privilege that I will forever be grateful for. To everyone behind the scenes … I send you my love. I will miss you all very, very much.”
Previously, the 48-year-old has showed support for her husband by signing off with “Julie Chen Moonves” at the end of Big Brother. This is something she had never done over her 18-year tenure as host of the reality show.
