As anticipated on Tuesday, Julie Chen officially and publicly exited The Talk.  Through a videotaped message to her co-hosts, viewers and staff and behind the scene personnel, Chen wrapped-up her run.

While Chen has bowed out of The Talk following her husband Les Moonves’ removal from CBS following allegations of sexual misconduct, she will continue on through the end of this season as the host of the reality-competition series, Big Brother.

On The Talk, Eve tossed to Chen’s videotaped exit message which the ladies of the panel also saw for the first time during the live broadcast:

Here is what Julie shared: “I have been at THE TALK since the day it started 9 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 the wonderful years together. I will always, always cherish the memories we shared. 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. To Eve: you’re the newest one at the table, but I feel like I’ve known you forever. You are even more beautiful inside than you are on the outside, if that’s even possible, because, you know I think you are flawless. Sheryl, thank you for being the perfect go-to partner for the last 7 years. I open, you close, and you always bring down the house. We called ourselves “The Book Ends,” remember? And we always laughed when we said it to each other. Your wit, and timing, and humor, and compassion, and intelligence is simply unparalleled. You are incredible. Carrie Ann (Inaba), I don’t know, but in my opinion, you look awful good sitting in that chair, my Asian sister. I’m just saying! And finally, to Sara and Sharon: we’ve been together since day one at THE TALK! I’ve spent every day with you both. I will always treasure our friendship, the great parenting advice from both of you, and the memories and laughs and all the private jokes that the three of us have shared. We are the original three musketeers. I love you all, and I know this show, and the sisterhood it stands for, will live on for many, many, many more years to come. You ladies got this, and I could not be more proud to call you my friends. I love you.”

Following the video, Sara Gilbert, creator and co-host of The Talk  thanked Chen for being a major part of the series ongoing success, as Sheryl Underwood looked on in tears.

It’s so sad what has happened. The fall out has human costs on so many levels. Best wishes to Julie and the ladies at The Talk.

Good Luck, Julie. You’re a good person…..alwsys liked you!! It’s very disheartening for you, an innocent victim, also, stuck in the middle.
I admire your faithful support for your husband.
Are women going too far today? As a woman, I did experience situations where men stepped over the line ( as a teen)…. but, never physical….usually, filthy language with sexual implications.
He said she said?
It is worse when the accuser’s story is not backed by anyone….yet, the life and reputation of the accused are forever tarnished.
I hope you and your family ( especially your young son) will come out of this unscathed. As a mother myself, with young children, my heart aches for you.
My best! ❤️

BIG BROTHER Season Finale: And The Winner Is ….

It was the final episode of the season, and in last night’s Big Brother we crowned a new winner. It was between Tyler, Kaycee, and JC

via GIPHY

Each week, we saw the alliance of Level 6 dominate the game through blindsides, manipulations, and competition wins.  It was a 3-part competition that would determine who would win the final HOH of the season guaranteeing them a spot in the final two ,as well as deciding who will be joining them.

In the first competition, it was one that required endurance. Kaycee and Tyler made a plan that he would throw the competition to her, but he didn’t. He actually ended up winning the first part which gave Kaycee some doubt in their alliance.  However, it all came together when the second part came out and Kaycee bested JC. It came down to Tyler and Kaycee.

It was a close one as both correctly guessed 6 of the 8 questions. This led to a tie-breaker question, and it was Kaycee who came out with the win causing her to secure the final HOH. Although she had a final two with both JC and Tyler, she decided to stick with the deal she made on day two and brought Tyler to the end with her.

via GIPHY

With Tyler controlling the house and Kaycee dominating the power competitions, it will be interesting to see how these allies will sell themselves to the jury and secure the votes. Will the evicted houseguests vote on game or emotion? As the votes came in, it was neck in neck … but locking in 5 of the 4 votes to win, Kaycee took the crown!

Rockstar, Faysal, Scottie, Sam, and Bayleigh all voted her to win while Angela, Haleigh, JC, and Brett vote for Tyler. I t wasn’t too bad for Tyler considering he won the second-place prize of $50,000 and was crowned “America’s Favorite Player”- a poll for viewers of the show to text or vote online for their favorite player which also comes with a nice $25,000 reward… so Tyler really left with $75,000. Not too bad for coming in second.

As Julie Chen signed off, adding in “Moonves” once again, she secured the show would be back with Celebrity Big Brother returning in winter and a new season coming back next summer!

Until then, be sure to follow along at Michael Fairman TV for all the coverage on your favorite shows… and always remember to expect the unexpected. (Filed by Jake Updegaff- Big Brother Correspondent)

BIG BROTHER: Down To The Final Three!

When Big Brother left-off; Sam was sent packing in Wednesday’s special eviction as we came down to the final four.  It was then between Angela, Kaycee, JC, and Tyler, and one was evicted on Thursday’s episode.  In addition, host Julie Chen once again announced, this time at the top of the show, that her name is “Julie Chen-Moonves”.

via GIPHY

“Expect the unexpected” is the slogan for the show so it was a bit surprising when we saw JC win the HOH competition … especially considering he’s never won a competition before the entire season.  This meant that one of the Level 6 members will be sent to the jury house … but who? It all comes to the Power of Veto competition.  Whoever wins it will get the final decision, because only one person will vote this week.

All of Level 6 knew it was every man for themselves as it has to be one of them.  The competition required both skill and balance, and everyone was determined to win it. Unfortunately for JC, he was the first one eliminated followed by Tyler. It came down to Kaycee and Angela, and it was Kaycee who took to win! This meant that the Level 6 showmance of Angela and Tyler must be broken up.

via GIPHY

It was a hard decision for Kaycee as she considers both Tyler and Angela as “best friends”.  Ultimately, she had a final two deal with Tyler and decided to keep him by exiting Angela.  We’re now down to the final 3. (filed by Jake Updegraff- Big Brother correspondent)

Who do you think will win… Tyler, JC, or Kaycee? Let us know in the comments below and tune-in to the 90-minute finale on Wednesday night, September 26th on CBS to find out.

Julie Chen To Step Down From ‘The Talk’

As of Monday night, the only hosting gig that Julie Chen has resumed since her husband, Les Moonves was ousted as CBS Chairman is Big Brother on CBS.

Chen had yet to return to her seat at the table as the anchor of the Daytime Emmy Award-winning series, The Talk.

Moonves has been accused of sexual misconduct with new allegations surfacing in the New Yorker as recent as just the other week.

Tonight, Page Six is reporting that Julie is walking away from The Talk and will resign.

CNN is also reporting that Chen has made the decision and it is effective immediately and that she will address her decision through a videotaped message to viewers on Tuesday’s episode of The Talk

The competition in the daytime talk space, the ladies of The View, voiced that they think there is no way for Chen to return to the panel of The Talk, especially since the CBS series addresses the hot social topics of the day and the #MeToo movement which is so much of our culture these days,

The only statement Chen has made on the new allegations against Moonves, is that she is standing by him when she signed off on a recent episode of Big Brother saying:  “I’m Julie Chen Moonves. Good Night.”

So, do you think Julie stepping down from The Talk is the right choice?  Is she in no-win situation? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
