    Downton Abbey

    "Downton Abbey" was a beloved period drama that had a good run, from 2010 to 2015, with a powerful ensemble cast. Now that an untitled film adaptation of the TV series is in the works — and a touring exhibit is making the rounds— we decided to take a look at where the show's many actors are now.

    Michelle Dockery played pampered socialite Lady Mary Crawley.

    As Lady Mary Crawley, the eldest Crawley sister, Michelle Dockery portrayed one of the most dramatic character arcs of the series, going from a pampered, narcissistic girl to a mature, level-headed, independent woman.



    She has since gone on to star in TV shows, including "Godless" on Netflix.

    Since the show ended, she has starred in the ensemble movie "The Sense of an Ending," as well as two TV series, "Godless" on Netflix and "Good Behavior" on TNT. She is participating in the upcoming movie adaptation.



    Hugh Bonneville was the lord of Downton Abbey, Robert Crawley.

    Played by Hugh Bonneville, Robert Crawley, the master of the house, was a good-natured father and husband who reluctantly adapted to the dramatically changing times.

    kuwtk season 15 episode 6


    Khloe Kardashian officially chose her sister Kim Kardashian West — rather than her eldest sister, Kourtney Kardashian — to be her daughter's godmother and potential legal guardian.

    The new mom announced her decision on Sunday's episode of E!'s "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," which was filmed when Khloe was still pregnant. (She gave birth to her daughter, True Thompson, in early April.)

    "I can't make anything official until the baby is born, but I am going to probably have Kim as the legal guardian if, God forbid, something happens," Khloe revealed to her older sisters.

    "I don't know my parenting style until I have a baby, but from what I envision my parenting style to be, I do think it'll be more like Kim. A little more stricter."

    Khloe tells the confessional camera, however, that she would ultimately feel comfortable trusting either Kim or Kourtney with this responsibility.

    "I relate to how Kim parents more. But at the end of the day, this family is so close and we love each other so much," the "Revenge Body" creator said. "If anything, God forbid, were to happen, I know my daughter's in the best of hands, no matter who her legal guardian is."

    After the announcement, Kim said that assuming the godmother title would be her "honor"— while Kourtney told Khloe she doesn't owe her an explanation: "I got three kids and I'm busy on my own."

    Kourtney joked that she herself has gone back and forth between Khloe and Kim to be the legal guardian for her own children.

    She also told the confessional camera that she believes Khloe might change her mind in the long run.

    "I mean, I'm a little bit disappointed that I'm not the guardian," Kourtney said. "But, honestly, you don't know what your parenting style is until you have kids. I think once Khloe has her own daughter, and she is really a mom, then maybe she will realize that we have more in common than she thinks, as far as parenting styles."

    "You never know, Khloe might switch back to me."

    kourtney kardashian

    Earlier on the episode, Khloe consulted Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner about the difficult decision. 

    Jenner said that Kourtney would likely "raise a child to believe in God," while Kim is more "hands-on" with homework and day-to-day activities.

    "When Kendall was born, I thought about who I felt the closest to, and who I would love — the way that they brought their kids up, and the way they ran their families and what they were all about," Jenner revealed.

    "You spend enough time in both of their houses," she advised Khloe. "So you just have to think, 'Where would I want my child being raised, in which environment? And who would I feel like my baby's going to feel most comfortable and most loved [by]?'"

    You can watch Khloe's full announcement below.

    Fire TV 3X4

    • Best Buy's in-house brand Insignia just released a new line of TVs that support HDR (high dynamic range), have Amazon's Fire TV built, and come with an Alexa-enabled remote.
    • HDR allows the TVs to show modern video with more vivid, accurate colors, while the built-in Fire TV makes it easy to stream movies, TV shows, and music from popular streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, and Prime Music Unlimited.
    • The TVs come in three sizes: 43" for $329, 50" for $379, and 55" for $449. Each TV has three HDMI ports for accessories, a USB port for playing movies and music directly from a flash drive, and a coaxial input for a cable box or HDTV antenna.
    • I've used one of Insignia's older 4K TVs for many years, and it works so well that I always suggest it to people looking for a budget-friendly TV. This new line has improvements that make these TVs even easier to recommend.

    Amazon and Best Buy are generally thought of as competitors, but the two companies recently collaborated on a new line of 4K TVs under the Insignia brand. The new models have features on-par with what you'd find in higher-end sets.

    The new line has three TVs: a 43" model for $329, a 50" model for $379, and a 55" model for $449. Each one has three HDMI ports, so you can plug in media streamers, game consoles, some sound bars, or a cable box. The TVs also have a USB port, so you can play media directly off of a flash drive, and a coaxial input, so you can attach an HDTV antenna.

    Insignia has had a line of budget-friendly 4K TVs for a couple of years, but this new line has two big differences:

    • These are the first Insignia TVs that support HDR (high dynamic range), a feature that allows them to show more vivid, lifelike colors when viewing HDR-enabled video or video games. Many people believe supporting HDR is actually a bigger deal than the jump from 1080P to 4K, and after experiencing it for myself, I completely agree.
    • Best Buy has teamed up with Amazon and built a Fire TV directly into its new TVs. Previous Insignia TVs had Roku's software built in. This is significant because it turns Insignia's TVs into smart-home hubs. Through the Alexa remote, you can control smart-home accessories and ask Amazon's smart assistant different questions.

    These two features will have a meaningful impact on the way people use their TVs: The picture you see on these sets will look better when viewing newer content, and the TV itself will be smarter and more capable than ever.

    Having a Fire TV built in also ensures you'll be able to access video and music through every major streaming service, including Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, Prime Music Unlimited, and Spotify

    You'll be able to search for the music and videos you want from those services using the same Alexa-enabled remote that lets you access all of the new smart-home functionality in these TVs. Using your voice to find the right show is a lot faster and more convenient than using buttons. 

    I've used an Insignia 4K TV regularly for the past couple of years, and it's actually the TV I recommend to my family and friends when they ask for a good budget-friendly model. This new line has better performance and smart features than the one it replaces without a major increase in price. 

    If you're shopping for a new TV that will last you several years, and want to spend well under $500, I highly recommend giving these new Insignia sets a try. 

    Insignia 43” Smart 4K TV with HDR Fire TV Edition, $329, available at Best Buy

    Insignia 50” Smart 4K TV with HDR Fire TV Edition, $379, available at Best Buy

    Insignia 43” Smart 4K TV with HDR Fire TV Edition, $449, available at Best Buy

    jenifer lewis emmys

    • Jenifer Lewis wore a custom, bedazzled Nike sweatshirt to the Emmys.
    • The "Black-ish" star said her decision was intended to "applaud" the company for supporting Colin Kaepernick and to thank them for "leading the resistance."
    • "We need more [of] corporate America to stand up," she said on the red carpet. "These are not dark times, these are awakening times."


    Jenifer Lewis wore a custom, bedazzled Nike sweatshirt to the 2018 Emmys to "applaud" the company for supporting Colin Kaepernick.

    The "Black-ish" star told Variety that she wanted to do something "meaningful" on the red carpet, so she decided to thank the brand for "leading the resistance."

    "I am wearing Nike to applaud them for supporting Colin Kaepernick and his protest against racial injustice and police brutality," Lewis said. "We need more [of] corporate America to stand up also. These are not dark times, these are awakening times."

    Nike recently released an ad campaign that featured an image of Kaepernick with the words "Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything." The NFL quarterback became famous — to some, and infamous to others— after kneeling during the national anthem to protest racism.

    "Thank you, Colin. Thank you for all that you do," Lewis said on the red carpet. "Thank you for being brave. Thank you for being courageous. Thank you for taking a knee. Thank you."

    Fans are already celebrating Lewis' stylistic decision at the awards ceremony, at which "black-ish" is nominated for best comedy series.

    The Emmys, hosted by "SNL's" Colin Jost and Michael Che, air at 8 p.m. EST on Monday, September 17 on NBC.

    game of thrones cast emmys

    • "Game of Thrones" author George R. R. Martin discussed the last season of the popular HBO series at the 2018 Emmys.
    • He said he doesn't know why the show is ending after eight seasons — and that it could have lasted for at least five more seasons.
    • "If you've read my novels, you know there was enough material for more seasons. They made certain cuts," he said.


    "Game of Thrones" author George R. R. Martin doesn't want the popular show to end next year, either.

    Martin — who penned the original series, "A Song of Ice and Fire," which the HBO series is based upon — discussed the forthcoming final season at the 2018 Emmys. He told Variety that he wasn't involved in the decision to end the show after eight seasons.

    "I don't know [why it's ending]. Ask [show co-creators] David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] when they come through," Martin said on the red carpet. "We could have gone to 11, 12, 13 seasons — but I guess they wanted a life."

    "If you've read my novels, you know there was enough material for more seasons. They made certain cuts," he said. 

    "David and Dan have been saying for five years that seven seasons was all they would go. And we got them to go to eight, but not anymore than that," Martin told Variety, admitting that he pushed for 10 seasons, but "they won."

    Martin went on to explain that he and the HBO showrunners have five prequels in development, "based on other periods in the history of Westeros — some of them just 100 years before 'Game of Thrones,' some of them 5,000 years before 'Game of Thrones.'"

    "I'm committed to these prequels," he continued. "I mean, I think this story ends when it ends. And I know all the actors — as great as they are — all the actors are anxious to get on and play other roles. They don't want to spend their entire lives playing one role. And that's fine. It's great. We had such an amazing cast."

    Martin said he also has other projects in development, including a new HBO show based on the post-apocalyptic novel "Who Fears Death" by Nnedi Okorafor. Martin is an executive producer.

    "We're developing that to be, I hope, the next big HBO fantasy series," he told Variety.

    "Game of Thrones" was nominated for 22 awards at the 2018 Emmys. The show, hosted by "SNL's" Colin Jost and Michael Che, airs at 8 p.m. EST on Monday, September 17 on NBC.

    emilia clarke emmys 2018

    "Game of Thrones" may be wrapping up next year, but it's certainly going out with a bang. For its penultimate appearance at the Emmys at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater Monday, the HBO series was nominated for 22 awards

    Although fan-favorite roles like Emilia Clarke, Kit HaringtonSophie Turner, and Maisie Williams were snubbed, fans can be bolstered by how the cast in attendance pulled out all the stops on the red carpet.

    Emilia Clarke arrived in custom Dior.

    The Mother of Dragons let her platinum blonde hair grow out for her Emmys look, allowing her natural brunette roots to shine through.

    "Hours and I mean HOURS later. She found her light," Clarke wrote on Instagram.

     



    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau went with a deep brown, velvet blazer.

    The "King Slayer" and his wife, Nukaaka Coster-Waldau, were among the first to arrive on the red carpet.



    Gwendoline Christie was draped in an all-gold ensemble.

    Fans joked that she was dressed in "gold silk Dornish robes" and others praised her embrace of "old hollywood glam."

    colin jost michael che emmys 2018

    • "SNL's" Colin Jost and Michael Che are hosting the 2018 Emmys from the Los Angeles Microsoft Theater.
    • Their nearly eight-minute monologue covered everything from the #MeToo movement to a subtle nod to CBS CEO Les Moonves, Roseanne, and Netflix.
    • "You know, it is an honor to be here sharing this night with the many, many talented and creative people in Hollywood who haven't been caught yet," Che kicked off the monologue.
    • Watch the full opening below.

    "Saturday Night Live's" Colin Jost and Michael Che left no stone unturned during the 2018 Emmy's monologue.

    The Emmy hosts went after everything from Netflix to "Roseanne" and the decline of television in a nearly-eight-minute monologue and they started it off with a bang. 

    "You know, it is an honor to be here sharing this night with the many, many talented and creative people in Hollywood who haven't been caught yet," Che said, referring to the #MeToo movement. 

    "Yeah, because the one thing Hollywood needs right now is people losing their inhibitions at a work function," Jost added. "We just want to say a quick hello to the thousands of you here in the audience tonight and the hundreds of you watching at home."

    The 2017 Emmys nearly tied for the show's all-time lowest ratings last year with 11.4 million average viewers.

    Jost continued to say how the first few Emmys differed from those now noting that gas "was 17 cents a gallon, a new home cost $7,000, and we all agreed that Nazis were bad."

    The two then took some digs at network TV, and though they didn't mention him by name, they alluded to former CBS CEO, Leslie Moonves. Moonves stepped down from his role after a revealing report in The New Yorker from Ronan Farrow detailed accusations of sexual harassment and assault from multiple women.

    "Our network, NBC, has the most nominations of any broadcast network, which is kind of like being the sexiest person on life support. It's not great," Che said.

    "Netflix, of course, has the most nominations tonight," Jost added. "If you're a network executive, that's the scariest thing you could probably hear, except probably, 'Sir, Ronan Farrow is on line one." 

    The two also addressed some of the biggest shows of the year from ABC's "Roseanne" to "This Is Us" and "The Handmaid's Tale" on Hulu. 

    "Speaking of sad, 'The Handmaid's Tale' is nominated," Che said. "I don't know if you've seen it, but 'The Handmaid's Tale' takes place in an imaginary future where an entire group of people are violently forced to work and make babies against their will. It's what black people call history. It's 'Roots' for white women. It's 'Roots' with vines."

    "'Roseanne' was canceled by herself, but picked up by white nationalists," said Jost.

    Netflix didn't go left unscathed either. The two noted how the streaming service seems to somehow launch hundreds of original shows and movies with unlimited funds despite the service staying relatively cheap.

    "This year, Netflix will spend $8 billion on programming. They now have 700 original series, which makes me realize that the show I pitched them must have really sucked," said Jost. 

    "Also, how is Netflix getting all that money?" asked Che. "It's like $9 a month and everybody I know is sharing the same account. Netflix is like that Instagram model that's always in Dubai. And you're like, 'Yeah, but what do you really do?'"

    Watch the monologue below.

    donald glover teddy perkins

    • Fans spotted Teddy Perkins at the 2018 Emmys Monday night.
    • Donald Glover played the reclusive, white character on FX's "Atlanta."
    • Some were convinced Glover attended the show at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles in white face. However, Glover was later seen in the audience in a pinstripe suit.
    • It left fans confused.

    If you are watching the 2018 Emmys airing live from Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater on NBC Monday night, you may have spotted an unexpected person in the audience. 

    Viewers noticed fictional character Teddy Perkins from Donald Glover's FX hit "Atlanta" was sitting in the audience. 

    And people lost it.

    If you're unfamiliar, Perkins is Glover's white alter-ego from "Atlanta."

    Glover played the introverted, shy pop star based on Michael Jackson who tried to kill Darius (Lakeith Stanfield) in his giant mansion. It was a brilliantly bizarre hour of television. 

    And the character didn't go unnoticed by celebrities. Bill Hader gave Perkins a hug before he went to the stage to accept the award for outstanding lead actor in a comedy series for HBO's "Barry."

    Immediately, TV journalists and fans were convinced Glover attended the award show in white face as his character. 

    But then it got weirder. 

    Glover was spotted in the audience. 

    So people started wondering whether or not someone else dressed up as Perkins or whether Glover was making a statement by making a major outfit change mid-show. 

    It wouldn't surprise us if Glover dressed as both. Glover's recent music video for "This is America" was filled with hidden meanings and political references. 

    Representatives for Glover did not immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment.

    julie chen cbs

    • Julie Chen is reportedly leaving her CBS daytime talk show "The Talk," according to CNN.
    • The decision comes after her husband, Les Moonves, stepped down as CEO of CBS after multiple accusations of sexual assault. 
    • Chen hasn't been on "The Talk" since September 10.
    • CNN reports Chen will leave the show with a pre-taped message on Tuesday.

    Julie Chen will exit her post as a co-host of CBS’ daytime series "The Talk" on the heels of her husband Leslie Moonves’ forced resignation as chairman-CEO of CBS Corporation, according to published reports.

    Chen is expected to sign off the show with a pre-taped message on Tuesday, CNN reported.

    A rep for CBS declined to comment on reports about Chen’s departure published by CNN and the New York Post.

    The sexual assault scandal that enveloped Moonves left Chen in an awkward position in her role as “Talk” co-host. The hosts of the daytime roundtable series frequently talk about their personal lives as part of the series.

    Moonves was forced out on Sept. 9 amid a cascade of sexual assault allegations that surfaced from decades ago. Chen had been on a leave from “The Talk” as of Sept. 10.

    Chen is also the host of CBS’ summer reality series staple “Big Brother.” A source close to the situation said no change in Chen’s status is expected on the series. On Thursday’s edition of “Big Brother,” Chen made headlines by signing off the episode as “Julie Chen Moonves,” a departure from her usual sign off as “Julie Chen.”

    Chen and Moonves have been married since late 2004. CNN reported that Chen’s focus was helping Moonves clear his name and tending to their young son, Charlie.

    • Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were at the Emmys Monday night.
    • Biel was nominated for her limited series, "The Sinner."
    • While on the red carpet, Biel asked if she could send a signal to her three-year-old son, Silas.
    • Timberlake and Biel did a series of three hand motions to the camera. 

    Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel had to leave their three-year-old son Silas at home while attending Monday night's Emmys at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, but that didn't mean they couldn't send him a signal from 3,000 miles away.

    While speaking with "Access," Timberlake and Biel revealed on the red carpet they have a secret code they share with their child.

    "We told him we're going to send him his secret signal," said Biel. "Can I send it to him?"

    Biel and Timberlake the turned to the camera and did a series of three hand signatures where they stuck out one, two, and five fingers.

    jessica biel justin timberlake silas hand signals

    While the hosts were trying to figure out the coded message, Biel said that they weren't saying, "I love you."

    "It means absolutely nothing," said Biel. 

    "It means I'm three years old and we asked him if he wanted us to send anything to him and he said, 'I want you to do this,' said Timberlake before repeating the three hand motions. 

    "I was like what," said a stunned Timberlake. 

    Biel wasn't sure if anyone was going to let them do that on the red carpet, but "Access" did. 

    Jessica Biel had her first Emmy nomination Monday night for lead actress in a limited series or movie for her show "The Sinner." Biel may have lost out to Regina King for "Seven Seconds," but at least she can return to New York knowing she made her little boy smile.

    • Claire Foy won at the 2018 Emmy Awards at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater Monday night.
    • But a "ripped ticket" reportedly almost didn't let her into the Governors Ball after the ceremony. 
    • A writer at The Hollywood Reporter spotted "Queer Eye" star Jonathan Van Ness help the actress gain entry. 

    Claire Foy won an Emmy Award Monday night for playing Queen Elizabeth on Netflix's "The Crown," but she almost didn't make it into the after party. 

    Foy, 34, was reportedly "denied entry" into the Governors Ball following the ceremony because of a "ripped ticket" until "Queer Eye" star Jonathan Van Ness stepped in and helped the actress out, according to Chris Gardner, a senior writer at The Hollywood Reporter, who witnessed and documented the moment on his Twitter. 

    Van Ness was apparently "gushing over how much he loves her." 

    The "Queer Eye" star presented at the Emmys with the rest of the cast of the Netflix show. 

    He later shared a photo with Foy in front of what looks like the party venue. 

    "Oh. My. F---ing. God. MOM! MOM!! MOM our fav!!!" he wrote on Instagram.

    black mirror

    Netflix looks like it might soon replace HBO as the perennial Emmy Awards favorite, following the award show's 70th annual broadcast on Monday night.

    Netflix and HBO tied for the most Emmy wins of any network on Monday with 23 wins each. During the main broadcast, Netflix edged out HBO in the wins count seven to six.  

    The streaming service also led all networks in nominations for the first time this year with 112 nods, surpassing HBO's 108 nominations. 

    In 2017, Netflix took home 20 Emmys from 91 nominations — second to HBO's 29 wins and 111 nominations.

    Netflix's rapid ascent comes as HBO's executives are seeking to expand the quantity of the cable outlet's offerings to reach a "broad" audience and better compete with streaming rivals like Netflix, though not exactly at "Netflix-levels of investment." Netflix will famously have spent $8 billion on content this year, with much of its resources going to original content.

    roseanne dan conner john goodman

    • Roseanne Barr confirmed her character would be killed off of "The Conners."
    • In a YouTube interview, Barr said her character would "die of an opioid overdose."
    • ABC canceled its "Roseanne" revival in May after Barr compared former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape.
    • The network announced a 10-episode spin-off with the rest of the cast in June.

    Roseanne Barr said she knows how her character will be killed off of ABC's "The Conners" spin-off.

    "Oh, they killed her," Barr said on an hour-long episode of Brandon Straka's YouTube show, "The Unsilent Minority.""They have her die of an opioid overdose."

    ABC's successful "Roseanne" revival was canceled in May after Barr sent a tweet comparing former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape. The president of ABC Entertainment, Channing Dungey, called her tweet "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values."

    In June, ABC announced a spin-off, "The Conners," which would bring back the show's main cast. It announced that Barr would not be involved in the 10-episode series.

    "It wasn't enough to just do what they did to me," Barr continued. "They had to, so cruelly, insult the people who loved that family and that show. They had to cruelly insult them and that's what they chose to do. There's nothing I can do about it. It's done."

    Barr claimed that Dungey never wanted her show, "Roseanne," back on the network.

    "[Disney CEO] Bob Iger wanted it and he kind of forced ABC's president to take it, and I don't think she ever wanted it. That's clear to me now, looking back," said Barr.

    Previously, Barr's old costar John Goodman alluded to the fact that Barr would be killed off of the spin-off.

    In an interview with The Sunday Times, Goodman said his character Dan Conner would be "mopey and sad [on 'The Conners'] because his wife's dead."

    On the "Roseanne" revival, the Conner matriarch was hiding a pain pill addiction from her family to help with knee pain. Dan told her they would figure it out together, but first she would get a much-needed surgery so she would stop stashing pills around the house.

    "The Conners" will premiere on ABC October 16 at 8 p.m. ET.

    ABC didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment.

    You can watch Barr discuss the show below. She starts discussing "The Conners" at the 39-minute mark.

    • Nick Jonas sat down for an interview with Jason Kennedy that aired on NBC's "Today" show on Tuesday.
    • When asked how he knew that his relationship with fianceé Priyanka Chopra felt right, the 26-year-old said that faith and love for family are two of the biggest factors. 
    • "I think the thing that really connected both of us is our love for family and faith and the importance of being connected to those that are always going to be there for you," Jonas said. "We found that in each other as well, which is a beautiful thing and I'm excited to start our life together."
    •  Jonas and Chopra confirmed their engagement in August 2018. 

     

    Nick Jonas is opening up about why he and fianceé Priyanka Chopra click as a couple.

    During a segment that aired on NBC's "Today" show on Tuesday, the "Right Now" singer shared his thoughts on how he knew Chopra was the one. He said that there were "so many things" and he "can go into all of it and get all mushy," but chose to highlight a few factors. 

    "I think the thing that really connected both of us is our love for family and faith and the importance of being connected to those that are always going to be there for you," Jonas told Jason Kennedy. "We found that in each other as well, which is a beautiful thing and I'm excited to start our life together."

    Jonas and Chopra attended the 2017 Met Gala together and speculation that they were dating began in May 2018. The couple waited until August 2018 to officially reveal their engagement. Their families met for the first time in Mumbai, India (where Chopra is from) to celebrate the couple's news.

    During an appearance on NBC's "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" in August 2018, Jonas explained that they started talking via text after a mutual friend connected them. Jonas and the "Quantico" actress remained friends because "our lives were taking us to different places." 

    When they finally saw each other in person months later, it "was kind of immediate."

    "We just knew it was right and jumped right in and we're very happy," the 26-year-old said. 

    He added that when their families met and participated in the Roka ceremony, they left "so full of joy." 

    "For she and I, I think it was just nice to be able to have that time with the family first and a private moment — and be able to share with the world afterwards."

    Julie chen

    • Julie Chen confirmed Tuesday afternoon she is leaving CBS' daytime talk show, "The Talk.
    • The decision comes after Chen's husband, Leslie Moonves, departed as CEO of CBS Corporation. He was accused of multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.
    • Chen has been on the show since its start in October 2010.
    • In a statement, CBS thanked Chen "for the dedication and passion she brought to the show every day and for her generous role as an ambassador for CBS Daytime."

    Julie Chen confirmed Tuesday on CBS' "The Talk" that she's leaving the daytime talk show. 

    "I have been at 'The Talk' since the day it started nine 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,'" Chen said in a recorded message from the "Big Brother" set that aired on Tuesday's show. "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," Chen continued. "To everyone behind-the-scenes, I send you my love. I will miss you all very, very much."

    Chen has been a part of the CBS series, in which several co-hosts discuss daily topics, since it started airing in 2010. CNN reported Chen would leave "The Talk" in a pre-taped message.

    Chen's departure comes after her husband, Leslie Moonves, left as the CEO of CBS Corporation. Moonves was accused of multiple allegations of sexual misconduct in two separate New Yorker stories.

    After the original July story from Ronan Farrow, Chen stood by her husband in a statement on Twitter.

    "I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the late '90s, and I have been married to him for almost 14 years," Chen wrote. "Leslie is a good man and a loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader. He has always been a kind, decent and moral human being. I fully support my husband and stand behind him and his statement."

    She later emphasized that statement on "The Talk," saying the Twitter statement would be the only one she would ever make on the subject. 

    "Some of you may be aware of what has been going on in my life for the past few days," Chen said on "The Talk" at the end of July. "I have issued the one and only statement I will ever make on this topic on Twitter. And I will stand by that statement today, tomorrow, forever."

    Shortly after "The Talk" aired, CBS released a statement on Chen's departure from the daytime show. 

    "For eight seasons, Julie Chen has co-hosted 'The Talk' with incredible energy, grace and professionalism. Her talents played a big role in our successful launch of CBS' first network daytime talk show, and in the series growth into an Emmy Award-winning broadcast," the network said in a statement. "All of us here have tremendous appreciation for the dedication and passion she brought to the show every day and for her generous role as an ambassador for CBS Daytime. We are grateful for her many other contributions, respect her decision and wish Julie all the best in everything she does."

    "The Talk" will carry on with creator Sara Gilbert ("The Conners") and co-hosts Eve, Sheryl Underwood, and Sharon Osbourne.

    CBS has not named a successor to Chen at the moment. But the "Big Brother" host mentioned that guest host Carrie Ann Inaba ("Dancing With the Stars") looked great at the table.

    "Carrie Ann, I don't know, but in my opinion, you look awful good sitting in that chair my Asian sister. I'm just saying," said Chen, who referred to herself, Osbourne, and Gilbert as "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 cannot be more proud to call you my friends. I love you."

    "Thank you Julie so much for the kind words. I created this show as a place for friends to come together," said a teary-eyed Gilbert before signing off of "The Talk.""We love you, Julie."

    Chen also hosts CBS' reality series "Big Brother." On last Thursday's show, Chen signed off from the "Big Brother" house as "Julie Chen Moonves."

    The next episode of "Big Brother" will air on CBS Wednesday at 8 p.m. with Chen hosting.

    Gilmore Girls

    There are so many different elements that go into creating a television show, but perhaps no factor is as key as a good theme song. Title sequences introduce you to the vibe of a show, whether it's a dramatic ballad for a romance series or a peppy pop tune for a guilty-pleasure reality show.

    Whether you grew up watching cartoons during an after-school special or use Netflix binges to keep up with more intense shows, it's easy to get attached to a series' theme songs (after all, you do listen to it every time you stream an episode), but do you truly pay attention to who performs them?

    Some of your favorite singers in the game didn't just create hit songs for themselves, but they also set the mood for some of the classic television shows we all know and love. Read on to find out which theme songs of TV past and present were actually performed by famous artists.

    Hilary Duff brought the drama for "Laguna Beach."

    Before the Kardashians took over the reality TV show world on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," there was another California-based reality show in the early 2000s that got the ball rolling: "Laguna Beach."

    Lauren Conrad, Spencer, and Heidi Pratt, and Brody Jenner all got their start on this so-called reality show, and to amp up the drama, show creators borrowed Hilary Duff's now-iconic song "Come Clean" to ring in each episode.



    She also introduced the glam lives of teens on "My Super Sweet 16."

    Remember that cringe-worthy MTV show "My Super Sweet 16"where a camera crew followed around super rich and super spoiled teenagers as they planned over-the-top sweet sixteen parties? Then you can probably already imagine that theme song performed by none other than Hilary Duff.

    That's right, the Disney royalty lent her voice to not one, but two different reality shows. We can already picture the show's end card as Duff's croons "Sweet 16!" 

     



    Regina Spektor brought her own her indie-pop twist to "Orange Is The New Black."

    Anyone who watches the hit Netflix show "Orange Is The New Black" will immediately recognize the catchy and ironically upbeat theme song of the show, sung by indie pop sweetheart Regina Spektor.

    Spektor wrote "You've Got Time" specifically for the show, and OITNB creator Jenji Kohan told Entertainment Weekly it was her plan all along: "I listened to Regina's albums obsessively while writing the series, so I immediately thought of her for our theme song … I had total faith in her and she nailed it."

    NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar showed off his basketball skills and gave Uncle Jesse some tips.

    Abdul-Jabbar played himself on the show and refereed a charity basketball game called "Baskets for Bayview."



    "Wheel of Fortune's" Vanna White appeared in a dream that D.J. had while stressing over the S.A.T.
