Julie Chen and her disgraced husband Les Moonves ventured out for a Saturday night restaurant date looking grim.

The former The Talk co-host is still standing by her man after he was forced to step down from his job running CBS.

Photographers caught the two leaving ritzy Madeo Italian restaurant in Beverly Hills on March 23, 2019 after their dinner.

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Moonves, 69, left as chairman of the eye network on September 9, 2018 after multiple accusations of sexual harassment.

Then Chen, 49, quit as co-host of the CBS morning show The Talk after more than nine years on the job. Although Chen is still officially hosting Big Brother on CBS, as Radar has reported, sources say she won't be returning as host of the reality show next season.

Unhappy In Public?

Chen and Moonves looked somber as they left Madeo restaurant in Beverly Hills. They never smiled as they left the Italian restaurant with friends.

No Longer Chief

Moonves used to be on top of the TV world, but he experienced a shocking fall from grace. He and wife Chen have largely stayed out of the limelight after 12 women claimed Moonves had sexually harassed them. The former TV head had been accused of "forcible touching or kissing during business meetings." He resigned from his CBS job in September 2018.

Dark Duds

While Chen wore an all-black ensemble and carried a red purse, Moonves sported a grey sweater. The two were poker-faced as they departed the restaurant.

Radar sources said Chen's CBS Celebrity Big Brother crew recently rallied around her as she and husband Moonves dealt with the aftermath of his sex scandal.

No More Talk

Carrie Ann Inaba replaced Chen on The Talk. In an emotional announcement in September 2018, Chen told viewers, “I have been at The Talk since the day it began. Right now, I need to spend more time at home with my husband and young son. So I have decided to leave The Talk."

Exposed

Writer Ronan Farrow's explosive article in The New Yorker quoted six women—including actress Ileana Douglas-- accusing Moonves of sleazy and sexually aggressive behavior when they tried to work with him. But Chen defended him on Twitter, writing, "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 from the looks of it, despite the long faces, they are still very much together.
