If Julie Chen is going to be marooned on Big Brother island, she better be compensated for it, dammit! Juile’s husband, ex-CBS head Les Moonves, and his reputation went down in a flaming pile of Ronan Farrow fever. Ronan’s reporting unmasked years of sexual misconduct allegations against Les, and Les was told to scram. He seemed to take it all in stride since he was still up for a $120 million severance package, but CBS decided to nip that in the bud since, well, they’re probably needing the cash to pay the lawyers handling the OTHER pervs they once had on the payroll. We didn’t hear much from Les after he was told “Hard pass!” on the request for his severance, but now he’s back challenging the ruling keeping him away from millions.
Today I’ve got my pom poms out yelling at the top of my lungs at the news that former CBS chairman Les Mooves will NOT be receiving his $120 Million severance package after allegations came out that he got real pervy with a multitude of women during his time on CBS’ Iron Throne.
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.
