Kenya Moore Wants To Replace Julie Chen!
Kenya Moore is desperate for a job and has set her sights on replacing Julie Chen on The Talk.
Moore, 47, eagerly leaped to replace Julie once she left the long-running talk show this week.
“Kenya wants that seat on The Talk.” A source revealed to Radar Online. “She’s working overtime behind the scenes to get the job.”
She wants the spot on The Talk as a way to get back at her former Real Housewives of Atlanta cast after not being offered a full-time role for season 11.
“She desperately wants to outshine all those b*tches on RHOA,” the source continued. “And believes a job on The Talk would gag those girls.”
If offered the CBS job, the unemployed reality star is super eager to begin the hosting gig right, after she allegedly gives birth in November.
“She’s had her people talk to production and is eager to give birth right away so she can put her energy into this opportunity.”
It’s also been reported that Kenya Moore is filming a special for the E! network about being pregnant.
On Tuesday, Julie Chen, 48, officially quit The Talk, a week after the network fired her husband Les Moonves, who served as CEO and chairman.

#PressPlay Julie announced Tuesday that she was leaving "The Talk," amid numerous sexual assault allegations levied against her husband, CBS head-honcho, Les Moonves. Sources say it was all her decision — CBS put no pressure on her to leave. But she will stay on as host of 'Big Brother,' for now. #juliechen #thetalk #bigbrother #lesmoonves
Moonves was accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct and has denied all claims made against him. However, since the allegations began, Chen has stayed by his side, even making a statement by signing off of Big Brother as “Julie Chen Moonves” in her first appearance following his firing.
