My CBS source confirms that "Scary" Julie Chen is indeed behind "The Talk" firings of Holly Robinson Peete & Leah Remini.


I'm a huge Big Brother fan. I've watched every episode & have been a fan of Julie Chen.....so this hurts me to write this. But as I received confirmation from a trusted CBS source that Holly Robinson Peete is getting awful treatment from CBS and that the rumors of Julie Chen being the cause are true, I must act. Holly Robinson Peete is sweet, kind & talented. If I have knowledge of her getting "screwed", I feel I must act.

My post from last Friday CBS won't officially release Holly Robinson Peete, but orders her to clean out her dressing room for her replacement. BOO CBS!! revealed quite a bit. After great ratings, Holly was being shown the door without cause. Yesterday the NY Post confirmed my post:

NY Post confirms Geno's World's Holly Robinson Peete "The Talk" post from 4 days ago
The NY Post brought up claims that Julie Chen was the reason that Holly & Leah Remini were being fired and the reason that Sharon Osbourne was taking a break from the show. It didn't seem right to me. I knew for a fact that Holly was being asked to clean out her dressing room & that she wasn't being released from her contract. But Julie couldn't be the cause. Right?

Yesterday, two articles appeared in Business Insider. One featured a CBS source that defended Julie Chen & said that Holly was officially let go: (My source called this first artcile "LIES")
CBS: Rumors Of Les Moonves's Wife Julie Chen Going Evil-Dictator On "The Talk" Are "Rubbish"

Soon after, another source defended Holly & said that she indeed was being handcuffed & not able to pursue a new job:
Is Holly Robinson Peete Getting Screwed By CBS And "The Talk"?

I talked to my trusted CBS source just now. I can confirm that Julie Chen is indeed behind Leah Remini being fired & Holly Robinson being shown the door. My source calls Ms.Chen a "Scary, scary lady" who is "running CBS". The NY Post articles about Chen threatening Holly & her co-hosts are sadly true. My source says that Holly is STILL in limbo. She still can't seek new employment & is suffering the embarrassment of being asked to empty her dressing room. "It's just cruel to hold someone from opportunity. And her paycheck! She has kids to support, including one sweet boy with special needs. It's mean and being done with no reason."

Shame on you CBS! Shame.

Ugly! This is awful.

Wow!! This IS scary! If I thought I might take a peep at The Talk on September 6th just to see how they explained Holly Robinson Peete's and Leah Remini's absence, I won't.

It's scary that this woman has such power.

I loved this show and DVR'd it and ran home to see it daily. My grandkids even watched it with me this summer. I personally got active with Autism because of Ms Peete.

Shame on you CBS!

We seem to be placing the entire blame on Julie. Let's face it, Les Moonves holds the power. 1st mistake, firing Leah. 2nd, treating Holly the way your are. We are over-looking the obvious. We, The EX Talk Fans, are the ones that hold the power in this situation. We have not only removed The Talk from our weekday DVR schedules, we have also banned all CBS programming (yes, I have even banned Big Brother!!) AND the use of ANY CBS Sponsor's product(s). Julie may run Les Moonves' house, but she does not run ours. Only time will tell how well Julie & Les fare w/o any viewers. In closing, I would like to THANK YOU, CBS, Julie & Les. You've actually done Leah & Holly a favor. Neither woman deserves to be bound by contract to the classless, unprofessional, ego-driven network that is CBS. And to think I held you to a higher standard. Shame.on.me.

P.S. If anyone is the least bit curious as to how The Talk addresses their display of unprofessionalism in regard to the abrupt firing of Leah & the shameful stringing along of Holly, and you feel you MUST watch only the premiere on the 6th, PLEASE DVR the show & watch 3hrs. AFTER the original air time. From what I understand, if viewed in that manner, it will not be included in the ratings.

I too have removed the talk from my dvr and will miss having coffee every day, after work, with a group of ladies who I thought all got along and respected each other. Boy was I wrong.
It is just sickening that CBS (Les Moonves) has given over creative control to a "journalist" when she actually brought so little to the show. Shame on you Mr & Mrs Moonves, for taking advantage of two brilliant, funny, intelligent, RELEVANT and watchable women. You brought them on as your star-power to build your audience (and it worked) only to turn around and drop them after the seasons' conclusion. Chen is obviously threatened by theirs' and Sharon's popularity and I can't believe that her vanity would lead to a decision to "dumb-down" (seriously, Kardashian and Molly Shannon?) or Viewify a show that had so much life, laughter and promise.

Rather than us all DVRing the first show, what say we elect ONE person only who can report back or post on YouTube? Wouldn't want any accidental reports of households watching or recording it. Frankly, I'll be shocked if they even address it without spin. After all the negative press, I can't see Chen sitting there and explaining away why she didn't want Leah and Holly to return. There is no sense to be made of this, because it must have been totally personal. Julie Chen doesn't like not being the center of attention period.

Leah and Holly will go on to bigger and better things. They are strong, resilient, classy ladies and I look forward to their next projects. I will never again watch The Talk - on principle. How VERY dare they(she) destroy a promising show and treat two fabulous women like this?

Colour me PISSED.

I have also deleted it from my DVR. I will miss the laughter and relaxation when I watched the Talk with the 5 women. Wonder if Les didn't like Julie saying too many personal things about their life to us "ordinary people". Know they think they may be going in a different direction but just wonder if they will even say anything. Would like just someone to turn in and watch the first show to see what they say and report back to us on Twitter.. Don't know how they can spin Kris Jenner, though. What has she given back to society other than becoming a millionaire or more from parading her children around?? Does she give back at all like Leah does to the troops and Holly to Autism???????? So sorry this had to happen as it was "my time" when I watched the show. Thanks for letting me leave a comment.

I guess that's why none of these witches were fired after their repulsive display on the 7/14 show where they all called male dismemberment and sexual mutilation "fabulous" and laughed at the victim of that crime. Julie was the second worst offender on that segment and I do pray Julie gets her due and the backlash kills this show and her career. I guess she's running things at CBS and has in fact castrated her husband.

jpcanes said...

First, everyone should google nielsen ratings

A complex system that is only in a small number of households.

Second,
most knew the reason why Leah & Holly were not asked back.
It's nice to get the confirmation here, though.

Third,
Julie Chen may be the greatest actress the world has ever seen. If you catch my drift.

"that's why none of these witches were fired after their repulsive display"
Calm down loony. It is a freaking talk show. Worse names are thrown like racism re the View. Go get some medication for the rage.

The Talk is ruined. Thanks Julie. What a fake bitch. I hope Sara leaves too. Sitting with fake ass Kris Jenner eww! She should not be called a mom!

@Raya
You'd be angry too if David Letterman and Paul Shaffer laughed at a woman who was sexually mutilated and dismembered by her husband and they called it a "fabulous" incident and then continued to be hosts of their show. (Picture them chuckling over this case and not being fired. Yeah right. http://blogs.houstonpress.com/hairballs/2011/02/gregory_longoria_jr_allegedly.php)

I never liked Julie on the talk. She acts so snobby and rude. Done watching this show since Leah is gone. Cbs messed up big time.

The only good thing about cbs is young and the restless and bold and the beautiful now! Julie Chen ruined the talk! I loved when she was off due to big brother! The show ran so much better without her. I read somewhere that she said her and her husband didn't like the others talking about news when she wasn't there because she is a news journalist Hahaha if that doesn't say snobby and stuck up then I don't know what is. Will never watch this show again without Leah and Holly!

Sara needs to start a new show on a different network with Leah, Holly, Sharon and her! Thanks for destroying the talk Julie Chen!!!!!

Anonymous said...

I agree with everyone's comments concerning Holly and Leah. They were such an integral part of the show with Leah's wit, animation and humor and Holly's intelligence, storytelling humor and just an all-around real person. I thought this was the best talk show ever because they were all "real" people without any pretenses. I thought that they all were genuine people who really meshed with each other. To bring in Kris Jenner is to bring phoniness to the table. By the way I LOVE Sharon and Sarah as well. You really had a winner. I never was crazy about Julie, but thought that they all meshed so well. There was much more chemistry than The View ever had. If you take away the incredible chemistry, then you will be taking me away as well. Big Big mistake CBS. You really had a winner. You took away the soap ATWT, but put something very special in its place. Now you are taking that away too.

Remarkable I say!
We all got chance to see Holly shine on the NBC game show she won (but didn't get the prize in the end). How is this a good thing for Julie Chen? Remarkable I say! She may think she is all powerful but the viewers hold the real power. I suggest that we all write into Moonves office with ccs to Nina Tassler and the CBS board members. I will find out the addresses and return here. I believe if many of us write in and STOPPING WATCHING THIS WOMAN from here on out then WE WILL WIN. I know that Holly will be fine. Leah will be fine as well. They both recieved a blessing from Chen. Chen will be the one surprised.

Julie needs to take the fake eye lashes off and get real.

i love Leah and Holly.

she mentioned daily that her husband was the boss.

wonder if he will fire her when the ratings tank?

stupid stupid.

DONE WITH JULIE.

Anonymous said...

I really thought Leah and Holly brought something special to the mix. I thought Julie Chen was annoying and bossy to begin with. They obviously were discounting public opinion. Some people dish out because they know they can. For heaven sakes, let Holly pursue other work and pay her money so she can take care of her family.

No more CBS for me.

Cheers to Leah and Holly to being dignified in this hot mess!

nancy, watched on the 6th and realized that holly and leah were gone. they and sarah are the only reason i watched. will not watch one more second

lini said...

Saw Julie Chen on Craig Ferguson promoting the new season. She seemed thrilled with it.

enN2sp said...

I did see the season opener, the whole thing, I DVRed it. They didn't say a dog gone thing about Holly & Leah. I'm taking it off my DVR schedule. Well at least we know who wears the pant in that family and it's not Les Moonves. I also think Sara should have put her two cents in she is one of the Producers for The Talk.

gerard said...

There has to be more to this story.
I doubt that it was Julie who fired these two gals.

would love to know the truth.
