Chen announced that she was leaving "The Talk" in a pre-recorded video that was played at the end of Tuesday's episode. The video was taped while Chen was on the set of "Big Brother," another program she hosts.
"I need to spend more time at home with my husband and our young son, so I've decided to leave 'The Talk,'" she said. Chen went on to thank each co-host individually, the production crew and fans.
"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," she continued.
Chen is still expected to continue on as host of "Big Brother," Variety reported.
