Julie Chen gets choked up as she mentions Big Brother contestant Audrey Middleton in this clip from Wednesday’s (June 17) episode of The Talk.

The 45-year-old TV host opened up about Audrey, 25, being the show’s first transgender houseguest, which you can watch below.

“We did not expect for you to know what you are about to see and hear until premiere night, but the story was linked to TMZ,” Julie says.

“From me personally, to anyone watching, I just want to say, I hope you watch with compassion and an open mind to learn something about a community that you may not be familiar with,” Julie concluded. “This is Audrey‘s story to tell and I’m looking forward to hearing it next week.”
