Get ready for a lot more “and I’m Julie Chen Moonves” from Julie Chen on future seasons of Big Brother because it sounds like she won’t be giving a divorce lawyer a boatload of cash. Her husband, Les Moonves, is sitting around waiting to figure out if CBS is going to fork over $120 million in a severance package to him after her was booted from the network in light of all sorts of horrific #metoo allegations. The Chenbot left her perch on The Talk (and is being replaced by Carrie Ann Inaba) in order to be with her family/not take questions from Sharon Osbourne about what it’s like to sleep in bed next to a monster. Well, a whole new round of tawdry tales about Les came out this week, but Julie ain’t going anywhere. Continue reading
According to The New York Times, CBS did a network investigation into the sexual assault and harassment allegations against their former head bitch Les Moonves. They hired attorneys who are now done looking into over a dozen claims of sexual misconduct and the report is not glowing… unlike Les’ old office in a black light.
As we all know, Julie Chen’s husband Les Moonves recently stepped down from his position at CBS after 12 women came forward with allegations of workplace assault and harassment. Julie announced yesterday in a pre-taped video for The Talk that she isn’t returning to the show because she wants to spend more time with her husband son. Thus causing agents everywhere to try to get a gift basket on behalf of their client to CBS first. But the same can’t be said for anyone hoping to get in on Julie’s sweet Big Brother hosting gig. According to TMZ, she’s not leaving her post at the Big Brother house.
Well, that didn’t take long. In all the fallout from Les Moonves stepping down as head of CBS, many were wondering what would happen to his wife Julie Chen, who awkwardly holds multiple hosting gigs thanks to her bed buddy, er, natural talent. While the Big Brother house is the best spot for Julie since, like evening hosts on Fox News, they don’t have a clue about what’s happening in the real world, her post as moderator on The Talk seemed in jeopardy since it seemed like her co-hosts supported her…but not so much her man. Julie Chen Moonves solved that one because she announced she’s done with The Talk in a recorded message that aired at the end of today’s show.
After the news broke that Les Moonves is stepping down as CEO of CBS after 12 women accused him of workplace sexual harassment and assault, his wife Julie Chen announced she’s taking some time away from The Talk to be with her family. When the first round of allegations against Les came out, Julie was quick to defend Les and “fully support him.” As promised, Julie returned to TV during last night’s episode of Big Brother and made it clear she’s working from The Tammy Wynette Guide to Standing by Your Man.
Because a month in 2018 wouldn’t be complete without someone in power in the entertainment industry being exposed as an (alleged) pervy lech, the rumored New Yorker piece by Ronan Farrow on Les Moonves, 68, has come out. And it’s exactly as advertised. Several women have come forward to accuse the CBS Corporation’s chairman and CEO of sexual harassment. People reports that Les’ wife, animatronic Big Brother and The Talk hostess Julie Chen, has elected to take the stand by your man route. Maybe there’s an air-tight prenup? Continue reading
