Les Moonves’ wife returns to CBS, stands by husband

While that live episode started with Chen acting as if everything was completely normal, she did something at the end that threw viewers for a loop.

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

While Chen did not discuss Moonves's situation or what was happening at CBS following his departure during the "Big Brother" episode, many perceived the rare use of her husband's last name as a subtle show of support. 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. Julie hasn't appeared on her daytime show The Talk since Les left CBS, issuing a statement saying "I am taking a few days off from The Talk to be with my family". It was the first time ever that Chen ended Big Brother with "Julie Chen-Moonves", and people definitely noticed. One person joked it was "the biggest twist" of the season. "Welcome to double eviction night!" so the way in which she signed off was a strong statement that she's still proud to be Les' wife.

"I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the late '90s, and I have been married to him for nearly 14 years", Chen wrote.

Chen has remained relatively quiet regarding allegations made against Moonves.

She echoed her Twitter statement in an episode of "The Talk" on July 30. He has always been a kind, decent and moral human being. Over the weekend, the New Yorker published another story with six new women coming forward to allege that Moonves had exhibited improper behavior toward them, including sexual misconduct, harassment and retaliation. In response to the New Yorker report Sunday, Moonves said he never used his position "to hinder the advancement or careers of women" and called the allegations untrue.
