But the big question now for us and Big Brother fans is will Julie Chen quit Big Brother?

News of Chen's expected "The Talk" resignation comes just nine days after her husband Les Moonves was sacked as CBS longtime CEO amid a wave of sexual misconduct allegations.

While the 70th annual Emmy Awards were airing live on NBC, CNN dropped a bomb exclusive about Julie Chen leaving The Talk.

TMZ first reported on Monday that Chen - who has been a staple on the afternoon talk show for almost 10 years - would be leaving The Talk immediately, with expectations that she would make the official announcement via a video during Tuesday's segment. 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".

"When she'll depart the show is unclear".

Chen's continued absence was not addressed by her fellow panelists on The Talk or by guest host Carnie Wilson, per TV Line.

The insider added: 'I wouldn't be surprised if CBS asked her not to come back'.

Then more women came out, and Chen skipped "The Talk" season premiere last week. She will also hopefully include the news that she will continue hosting Big Brother for the rest of the season at least.

It's not a surprising move for Chen considering The Talk is a show where you have to, well, talk about current events.

Taking to Twitter in light of the allegations, Julie wrote: 'Leslie is a good man and a loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader.

Julie Chen is leaving her longtime stint on The Talk, reports Deadline. He's always been a kind, decent and moral human being. But given the recent circumstances, Julie Chen is not expected back. "I fully support my husband".

Chen and Moonves have been married since 2004 and have one son, 8-year-old Charlie, together.
