Julie Chen’s Controversy on Big Brother
Julie Suzanne Chen is an American television personality, news anchor, and producer for CBS. She has been the host of the U.S. version of the CBS reality-television program Big Brother since its debut in July 2000 and is the longest-serving host of any country’s version of the show. She is married to Les Moonves, who is the former CEO of CBS.
Leslie Roy Moonves is an American media executive who served as Chairman and CEO of CBS Corporation until he resigned on September 9, 2018 in light of allegations that he sexually abused many women. He is married to Julie Chen. He had held a series of executive positions at CBS from July 1995 to September 2018.
While signing off from the show, Julie Chen’s finishing notes were observed, as Big Brother comes from CBS, and her husband was recently fired from that office as a CEO because of allegations on him regarding Sexually Harassing girls at work. She finished the show with “I’m Julie Chen MOONVES, Goodnight.” This was for the first time, that the 48 year old host named Moonves after her complete name.
Julie Chen is standing by her husband. She signed off tonight’s @CBSBigBrother, for the first time ever I believe, with: “I’m Julie Chen Moonves.”

“It’s sort of perfect when you think about it, the casual viewer probably didn’t even notice, but I promise you that the network did. They were watching every single second of the show to see if she would do anything. They must have been breathing a sigh of relief because the show was almost over, and then that happened!” A source from CBS stated!
Les Moonves stated these words after he was fired:
“Throughout my time at CBS, we have promoted a culture of respect and opportunity for all employees, and have consistently found success elevating women to top executive positions across our company. I recognize that there were times decades ago when I may have made some women uncomfortable by making advances, those were mistakes, and I regret them immensely. But I always understood and respected — and abided by the principle — that ‘no’ means ‘no,’ and I have never misused my position to harm or hinder anyone’s career. This is a time when we all are appropriately focused on how we help improve our society, and we at CBS are committed to being part of the solution,”
Julie Chen also tweeted protecting her husband through her official Twitter account:
“I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the late ’90s, and I have been married to him for almost 14 years. Leslie is a good man and a loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader, he has always been a kind, decent and moral human being. I fully support my husband and stand behind him and his statement.”
