As fans remember all too well, Chen has been Big Brother’s host ever since the show debuted in 2000 on CBS!
Back in November, the network confirmed that the woman was also going to host the newest season of Big Brother: Celebrity Edition.
This announcement came after it became known that she was leaving her other gig as a co-host on the Talk.
Chen left after her husband, Les Moonves’ own exit from CBS after a number of women accused him of sexual misconduct.
The man, however, has denied all of the allegations against him and it seems like Julie is standing by him, hence her decision to leave The Talk.
As for who took her place, it is Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba, who’s already started her new job on January 2.
During an interview for ET, Inaba had only good things to say about Chen.
‘I have so much respect for her. She sent me flowers. She was one of the first people to send me flowers, and I just have so much love in my heart for her. She’s a strong woman, and I know she’s going through a lot, and I just send her all my love. I am so grateful for her.’
