'Big Brother' host Julie Chen to co-host new CBS daytime talk show

By Reality TV World staff, 07/21/2010 

Big Brother host Julie Chen's new The View-like daytime talk show is a go.

CBS has announced it has picked up the new talk show project -- which will feature a panel of women "examin[ing] topical events and contemporary issues through the eyes of mothers" -- and the series will premiere this fall.

In addition to Chen, the still-untitled show's panel will also feature businesswoman and America's Got Talent judge Sharon Osbourne; actress and recent The Celebrity Apprentice runner-up Holly Robinson Peete; actress, former Dancing with the Stars participant and ex-Dance Your Ass Off host Marissa Jaret Winokur; and actresses Sara Gilbert and Leah Remini.

The show -- which will replace CBS' canceled As the World Turns soap opera and result in Chen no longer co-anchoring CBS' The Early Show on a daily basis, according to the Los Angeles Times -- was developed by Gilbert, who will also serve as an executive producer.

While Chen is married to CBS president and CEO Leslie Moonves, he was not involved in the decision to pick up the show, network spokesman Chris Ender told the Times.

News of Chen's involvement in the project had originally surfaced in April. 

At the time, Chen and Gilbert were reportedly the only panelists certain to participate in the show, which had yet to film its pilot.  However, The Real Housewives of New York City star and former The Apprentice: Martha Stewart runner-up Bethenny Frankel and former Dancing with the Stars second-season celebrity participant Lisa Rinna had been mentioned as other potential panel members.

Chen welcomed her first child with Moonves last September.  The couple wed in 2004.
