Julie Chen...the wife of disgraced former CBS CEO Les Moonves made her return to TV, ??Opening the show “Big Brother” just days after ??Moonves resigned from the network after sexual assault and harassment allegations.
??While she didn’t mention her husband by name at the beginning of the show, ??The end of the show is what made some viewers turn their heads.
??“From outside the Big Brother house with Brett, I’m Julie Chen Moonves.
Good Night” ??And of course people on Twitter reacted, one writing, “Julie is so amazing - the cherry on top - I didn’t think her perfection could grow but here she is - We love you so much.” ??And another was not so supportive, “...I’m sure that clip will be played ad nauseam and I can only imagine how his victims will feel to see that.
How disgusting and how sad.” ??This all comes after Chen missed the season 9 premiere of the Talk saying in a statement to Variety, ??“I am taking a few days off from ‘The Talk’ to be with my family.
I will be back soon and will see you Thursday night on Big Brother.” ??Moonves was accused of sexual misconduct after at least a dozen women came forward ??in articles written by Ronan Farrow at the New Yorker.
??Some made claims that Moonves forced them to perform oral sex, forcibly kissed them and exposed himself.
??Moonves released a statement to the magazine, calling the allegations untrue.
