Les Moonves’ wife returns to CBS, stands by husband

039;60 Minutes' executive producer Jeff Fager exits CBS News

No one was sure when Julie Chen would return to the airwaves after her husband, Les Moonves, was ousted as CEO of CBS in the wake of more sexual misconduct allegations. Until now. On the September 13 episode of Big Brother, she did something she's never done in her years of hosting the CBS reality show.

Chen has remained relatively quiet regarding allegations made against Moonves.

"From outside the Big Brother house with Brett, I'm Julie Chen-Moonves", she said Chen as she closed the show. By calling herself Julie Chen Moonves on live TV, the host is essentially letting the world know that she's sticking by her man. All of Chen's social media accounts also use her full name without "Moonves".

Chen was absent Monday for the season premiere of "The Talk".

Reactions to Chen's decision were mixed, ranging from surprised to outraged.

On Sunday, Moonves was sacked from his long-running position at CBS after new allegations surfaced of inappropriate behavior, including assault and sexual misconduct. Following the story's publication, CBS's board launched an investigation into Moonves, The Post reported.

Nicki Minaj Says Incident with Cardi B Was 'Humiliating'
And it's so sad for someone to pin that on me because I'm the bad guy and they're gonna believe them.... It is no news that talented rappers, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj , are not on good terms with each other.

The New Yorker published a second report about Moonves on Sunday, describing additional accusations against him brought by six other women.

Beyond Moonves, the network has had its fair share of #MeToo upheavals.

The executive producer of the CBS television program 60 Minutes, Jeff Fager, is leaving CBS News, according to a company memo on Wednesday, amid reports of inappropriate behaviour.

And some even believed that Chen's statement might lead to either her resignation or being fired.

"I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the late '90s, and I have been married to him for nearly 14 years", Chen wrote. 'He has always been a kind, decent and moral human being.
