Julie Chen has been very vocal and critical of Camille Cosby during the Cosby allegations. Now Chen finds herself in the same situation.

Instead of facing the The Talk’s daily round table gossip that she and her cast mates dish on others lives, she has decided to pull out of the shows season premiere . Chen released the following statement. “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 Talk Season 9  premiered today. Her husband Les Moonves was forced to resign from the head of CBS after six women accused him of sexual misconduct.
