Julie Chen Appeared To Support Les Moonves On Her 'Big Brother' Return

Les Moonves

Moonves resigned on Sunday after six women accused the 68-year-old television executive of sexual misconduct in an article published by The New Yorker - which is in addition to six other women who went public with their allegations in a previous New Yorker report published in July. "I will be back soon and will see you Thursday night on 'Big Brother.'" While Thursday night's live Big Brother started off with Chen acting as though everything was completely normal, it was the powerful sign off she gave at the end of the show that threw viewers for a loop.

Just four days after husband Les Moonves was sacked as the president of CBS, Julie Chen appeared on the network with a surprising show of support. She had never used her husband's last name on the CBS reality show before. "Anyone who knows me knows that the person described in this article is not me". "I fully support my husband and stand behind him and his statement".

But as time ticks on and further details about the extent of Moonves' abusive conduct continue to emerge - Chen's on-air return came less than an hour after Variety posted a report on the "dark side" of working for him, for example - Chen's cone of silence on the topic may become increasingly harder to accept.

Tennis umpires 'thoroughly disturbed' by lack of support from WTA
The WTA validated Williams' complaint that the penalties were sexist and would not have been initiated if Williams were a man. Issues of sexism, officiating double standards and adverse playing conditions have dominated the 50th anniversary of the U.S.

"Julie Chen Moonves" opened the Thursday episode with a recap of what had happened in previous weeks and boasted about the double eviction that was set for the episode.

"I think that is a disgrace to her husband's victims", wrote one Twitter user.

In a statement to CBS News, Fager said his contract was terminated "for a harsh text I sent to a CBS employee". Her co-hosts did discuss the controversy in her absence. Sharon Osbourne said on the daytime talker Tuesday. She's been a friend.

Indias Supreme Court decriminalises homosexuality
In Delhi , 183 cases were registered under Section 377 and in Maharashtra 170 such cases were registered. In 2009, the Delhi high court had read down the section, calling it a "violation of fundamental rights".

Why was Julie Chen's comment on Big Brother 20 noteworthy?

Chen has remained relatively quiet regarding allegations made against Moonves. "This is our ninth season and we've been together since the beginning", said co-host Sara Gilbert. However, this is an important time in our culture, and just because this hits close to home, it doesn't change the story. "Those were mistakes, and I regret them immensely". And women should not feel they have to carry secrets and burdens. "This is a terribly stressful time for her and she absolutely blames Les for putting her in this miserable spot", a CBS source tells us.
