Julie Chen Closes Out Latest Big Brother by Saying ‘I’m Julie Chen Moonves, Goodnight’


Hosting tonight’s Big Brother, Julie Chen closed out with a pretty subtle statement about her husband, Les Moonves.

Moonves was the CEO of CBS until this week, when he was fired following a second New Yorker report containing some serious allegations of sexual misconduct. Moonves’ departure was followed by the firing of 60 Minutes executive producer Jeff Fager after he sent a disturbing text to a CBS News correspondent reaching out to him for comment.

Chen is still at CBS as co-host of The Talk and host of Big Brother, and tonight was her first appearance on the network since his firing. And at the end of tonight’s Big Brother, this was her sign-off:

“I’m Julie Chen Moonves, goodnight.”

It may have been a subtle show of support for her husband from Chen, who put out a statement weeks ago after the first New Yorker report broke that she fully supports him.
