“I’m Julie Chen Moonves. Good Night” Says ‘Big Brother’ Host On First Appearance Since Husband’s Downfall From CBS

Courtesy/CBS

Four days after her husband, Les Moonves was officially ousted as CBS chairman, Julie Chen returned to television hosting Thursday night’s episode of Big Brother for what was to be a double eviction night on the reality-competition series.

Chen has not yet returned to her spot on the table as co-host of the afternoon series, The Talk on CBS.

Since more women came forward last Sunday in an article from Ronan Farrow in the New Yorker that accused Moonves of inappropriate workplace conduct and sexual harassment, followed by the CBS board learning that Moonves tries to buy an accuser’s silence by getting her hired at the network, thus Moonves is now reportedly not receiving his $120 million exit package, Chen stood by her husband when at the end of tonight’s episode of Big Brother she closed with this statement.

“From outside the Big Brother House with Brent, I’m Julie Chen Moonves. Good night.”
Until that statement, Chen has been radio silence since more accusations came to light about her husband.  Chen’s co-stars on The Talk have been talking about the hot button issue about their friend’s husband, and have held Moonves accountable for what the accusers have said against him and the workplace culture.

So, what did you think of Julie’s show of support for her husband, Les Moonves? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

So sad; she’ll have to face the inevitable soon enough.

Questionable is all I can say…not sure what to make of Julie Chen’s choice. In all honesty I was a little distracted by the hotness sitting next to her. Lol.

If he is convicted of any of the accusations, she will probably have a change of heart, but for now, she is standing by her man. I dont have a problem with it. Many times in marriages, the first sign of trouble, the women usually leaves and bleeds her husband dry! Yes, it can be the other way to, but its still rare! Julie is smart, she will not look like a fool when all is said and done!

I interpret this as a message to her “The Talk” co-hosts who have come down hard on Les Moonves. That’s got to be tough on her and maybe she wanted to draw a line in the sand before she returns to “The Talk” – IF she returns.

Good for her! If she wants to stand by her man despite his problems, it’s her business.

I don’t think it was her best choice.

it was a very soap opera moment, she’s standing by her husband, he’s her family . this must be difficult beyond explanation. I can’t judge, no matter how you look at it its heartbreaking for her family and for the accusers its no picnic either. it is sad all around…period!

The worst part of her statement was when she called the guy Brent instead of Brett!

True, she was so focused on ending with her husband’s last name

I definitely don’t want her back on TheTalk. She is weak, submissive and money hungry.

Same here, hopefully CBS drops her off both shows now.

This is difficult, he is a powerful man and if someone did want to ruin his reputation, get him out of his position of power, there is no better way in today’s climate to do it. So it comes down to, who do you believe the women or the man? In the Cosby’s case Julie was all for believing the women, but when it comes to her own husband, he is the victim–and these women are turning consenting sexual encounters into assault? Or perhaps she believes this was all before her time and she changed him– I don’t know, it is her marriage– her choice– Personally if she wanted to stand by him, and believes CBS is in the wrong–resign from both shows- why would you want to work for the company who unfairly fired your husband? If she believes he did these things, and she forgives him then I don’t think she needed to make a public statement either way– it is none of our business. CBS didn’t believe the first 6 women, it was only when 6 more came forward that anything was done– so for people who wonder why one lone woman never came forward in the first place– that is the reason– when it is a case of he said she said- the she is never believed–when it is a case he said they said– then something is done, sometimes, unfortunately even with the Cosby case, no matter how many women came forward, some still believed Cosby’s side of the story.

Great that she’s supporting her husband, but doesn’t change what he did.

The Talk is nothing but a gossip show. Her husband is suddenly the object of the gossip. Now she knows what it feels like to be the subject. She can stand by him all she wants. She probably knew what he was doing all along.

BIG BROTHER: Down To The Final Three!

When Big Brother left-off; Sam was sent packing in Wednesday’s special eviction as we came down to the final four.  It was then between Angela, Kaycee, JC, and Tyler, and one was evicted on Thursday’s episode.  In addition, host Julie Chen once again announced, this time at the top of the show, that her name is “Julie Chen-Moonves”.

via GIPHY

“Expect the unexpected” is the slogan for the show so it was a bit surprising when we saw JC win the HOH competition … especially considering he’s never won a competition before the entire season.  This meant that one of the Level 6 members will be sent to the jury house … but who? It all comes to the Power of Veto competition.  Whoever wins it will get the final decision, because only one person will vote this week.

All of Level 6 knew it was every man for themselves as it has to be one of them.  The competition required both skill and balance, and everyone was determined to win it. Unfortunately for JC, he was the first one eliminated followed by Tyler. It came down to Kaycee and Angela, and it was Kaycee who took to win! This meant that the Level 6 showmance of Angela and Tyler must be broken up.

via GIPHY

It was a hard decision for Kaycee as she considers both Tyler and Angela as “best friends”.  Ultimately, she had a final two deal with Tyler and decided to keep him by exiting Angela.  We’re now down to the final 3. (filed by Jake Updegraff- Big Brother correspondent)

Who do you think will win… Tyler, JC, or Kaycee? Let us know in the comments below and tune-in to the 90-minute finale on Wednesday night, September 26th on CBS to find out.

Julie Chen Says Goodbye To THE TALK Via Video Message

As anticipated on Tuesday, Julie Chen officially and publicly exited The Talk.  Through a videotaped message to her co-hosts, viewers and staff and behind the scene personnel, Chen wrapped-up her run.

While Chen has bowed out of The Talk following her husband Les Moonves’ removal from CBS following allegations of sexual misconduct, she will continue on through the end of this season as the host of the reality-competition series, Big Brother.

On The Talk, Eve tossed to Chen’s videotaped exit message which the ladies of the panel also saw for the first time during the live broadcast:

Here is what Julie shared: “I have been at THE TALK since the day it started 9 years ago, and the cast, crew and staff have become family to me over the years. But right now, I need to spend more time at home with my husband and our young son, so I’ve decided to leave THE TALK. I want to thank everyone at the show for the wonderful years together. I will always, always cherish the memories we shared. Most important, I want to thank you, the viewers, for allowing me into your home every day. It was a privilege that I will forever be grateful for. To everyone behind the scenes, I send you my love. I will miss you all very, very much. To Eve: you’re the newest one at the table, but I feel like I’ve known you forever. You are even more beautiful inside than you are on the outside, if that’s even possible, because, you know I think you are flawless. Sheryl, thank you for being the perfect go-to partner for the last 7 years. I open, you close, and you always bring down the house. We called ourselves “The Book Ends,” remember? And we always laughed when we said it to each other. Your wit, and timing, and humor, and compassion, and intelligence is simply unparalleled. You are incredible. Carrie Ann (Inaba), I don’t know, but in my opinion, you look awful good sitting in that chair, my Asian sister. I’m just saying! And finally, to Sara and Sharon: we’ve been together since day one at THE TALK! I’ve spent every day with you both. I will always treasure our friendship, the great parenting advice from both of you, and the memories and laughs and all the private jokes that the three of us have shared. We are the original three musketeers. I love you all, and I know this show, and the sisterhood it stands for, will live on for many, many, many more years to come. You ladies got this, and I could not be more proud to call you my friends. I love you.”

Following the video, Sara Gilbert, creator and co-host of The Talk  thanked Chen for being a major part of the series ongoing success, as Sheryl Underwood looked on in tears.

Julie Chen To Step Down From ‘The Talk’

As of Monday night, the only hosting gig that Julie Chen has resumed since her husband, Les Moonves was ousted as CBS Chairman is Big Brother on CBS.

Chen had yet to return to her seat at the table as the anchor of the Daytime Emmy Award-winning series, The Talk.

Moonves has been accused of sexual misconduct with new allegations surfacing in the New Yorker as recent as just the other week.

Tonight, Page Six is reporting that Julie is walking away from The Talk and will resign.

CNN is also reporting that Chen has made the decision and it is effective immediately and that she will address her decision through a videotaped message to viewers on Tuesday’s episode of The Talk

The competition in the daytime talk space, the ladies of The View, voiced that they think there is no way for Chen to return to the panel of The Talk, especially since the CBS series addresses the hot social topics of the day and the #MeToo movement which is so much of our culture these days,

The only statement Chen has made on the new allegations against Moonves, is that she is standing by him when she signed off on a recent episode of Big Brother saying:  “I’m Julie Chen Moonves. Good Night.”

So, do you think Julie stepping down from The Talk is the right choice?  Is she in no-win situation? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
