NEW YORK (AP) — Julie Chen has left the cast of the CBS daytime show “The Talk” a week after her husband, CBS Corp. boss Leslie Moonves, was ousted from the company due to sexual misconduct charges.

Chen announced her decision via a taped message on the show Tuesday, saying she needed to spend more time at home with her husband and their son. She appeared from the set of “Big Brother,” the prime-time CBS show where she is the host.

Chen made no mention of the case involving Moonves. She appeared to fight back tears when she thanked crew members.

One of her co-hosts, Sara Gilbert, said “we love you, Julie,” after the taped message was over and just before the show concluded.

Julie Andrews Almost Died Filming The ‘Mary Poppins’ Umbrella Scene

Julie Andrews appeared on “The Late Show” Friday night, where she told Stephen Colbert about what it was like to actually film that memorable umbrella scene from the 1964 movie, “Mary Poppins.”

Andrews explained that to pull off that flying sequence, she actually performed the stunt herself while wearing a painful harness. But the supposedly load-bearing wires she was attached to high above the stage didn’t end up working as planned.

“There was a very dangerous day right at the end of filming when I was in this excruciatingly painful harness,” Andrews told Colbert, as she pointed upward. “And I was hanging around up there for the longest time with the umbrella.”

After floating in the sky for quite some time, Andrews sensed the wires giving out on her.

“I thought I felt the wire leave [and] drop about six inches … I was nervous,” Andrews recalled. “So, I called down and I said, ‘Excuse me, when you do let me down, could you let me down really gently, because I felt myself slip and I just don’t feel too safe up here.’”

The crew called back that they would be sure to bring her down very softly.

That’s not what ended up happening.

I plummeted to the stage
Julie Andrews

“I plummeted to the stage,” Andrews said. “And there was an awful silence for a minute and I did let fly with a few Anglo-Saxon four letter words, I have to admit.” The actress smiled at this polished admittance of crassness, much to the delight of the studio audience. 

Although Poppins takes flight a few times in the movie, you can likely see the scene Andrews is referring to in her first introduction to the children. Typically when Poppins is flying, the character is completely still (due to rudimentary special effects), but Andrews’ body is moving around while flying with the umbrella near the end of this clip:
