Julie Chen is married to Les Moonves.
And this is a rather awkward arrangement at the moment.
That’s because Chen is a CBS host, likely best known for emceeing Big Brother; and Moonves is the just-ousted CBS President, who was recently removed from his position due to accusations of sexual misconduct.
Like we said: AWKWARD!
Chen briefly touched on this scandal back when news about it spread, but she hasn’t said very much about it since.
Until the night of September 13, that is.
To close out an episode of Big Brother, Chen signed off in a way that showed support for her husband.
It was subtle, yet also obvious, and social media users have A LOT to say about it.
See what we mean below…
1. What Did She Say?
“From outside the ‘Big Brother’ house…I’m Julie Chen Moonves. Goodnight.” That’s how Chen closed out the latest episode of Big Brother, using her husband’s last name on air for the first time.
2. What Had She Said Previously About the Scandal?
“I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the late ’90s, and I have been married to him for almost 14 years,” read her one statement on the topic. “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.”
3. What About on The Talk?
This is the only thing Chen told the audience upon her return to The Talk about the scandal hit: “Some of you may be aware of what’s going on in my life the past few days. I issued the one and only statement I will ever make on this topic on Twitter, and I will stand by that statement today, tomorrow, forever.”
