“Big Brother” host Julie Chen Moonves didn’t have a say about her exit from “The Talk” in 2018, claiming that CBS had the final call.“That was a hard time,” Chen Moonves, 53, told “Good Morning America” on Monday, while promoting her new audio memoir, “But First, God.”She continued: “I felt stabbed in the back.

I was, you know.”The TV personality moderated the daytime talk show for eight years before leaving in September 2018. The move came just days after her husband, Les Moonves, stepped down as chief executive of the network amid allegations of sexual misconduct from more than a dozen women, which he’s denied.“Right now, I need to spend more time at home with my husband and young son,” Chen Moonves told “The Talk” audience at the time. “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 cannot be more proud to call you my friends.”The Post has reached out to CBS for comment.“But First, God” will dive deeper into how Chen Moonves embarked on a spiritual journey following the scandal.“Julie Chen before she found God was self-absorbed, career-minded, vain, gossipy — fun to be with, but probably kind of a shallow person,” she continued on “GMA” Monday. “Julie Chen Moonves, who now knows the Lord, is someone who wants to help others; who wants to look at everyone with a soft heart.”After her husband’s fallout, she also began to introduce herself as “Julie Chen Moonves” instead of just “Julie Chen” during her hosting duties on “Big Brother.” Earlier this summer, she kicked off the show’s milestone 25th season — and often ends each episode with a line such as “love one another.”Chen Moonves was initially replaced by “Dancing with the Stars”.
