As head of a major American television network, Les Moonves held the power to change the lives with a single decision, based on nothing more than an impulse, a perceived insult, or a mood. In the latest of many, many, revelations that Les made business decisions with his crusty dick, Cybill Shepherd claims that Les cancelled her CBS TV show Cybill as punishment for rejecting his advances after the two had dinner together.
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.
Les Moonves stepped down as CEO and chairman of CBS in September after he was exposed by Ronan Farrow and The New Yorker for being an alleged sexual harasser. CBS launched an “internal investigation” and depending on how it went, Les could end up with a $120 million severance package. But according to a new story from The New York Times, he could end up with nothing after it was claimed he covered up a rape.
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.
