Julie Chen’s Thursday Night Sign-off: “I’m Julie Chen Moonves”

The wife of the former CBS CEO has not in the past used her husband’s surname.

Julie Chen appears to stand by her husband Les Moonves, who recently exited his role as CEO of CBS following a series of sexual harassment allegations coming to light, in a clip from Thursday night’s episode of Big Brother. During her sign-off from the show, Chen said, “I’m Julie Chen Moonves, goodnight.” According to a story in Vulture, Chen does not normally use her husband’s name professionally.

Chen has hosted Big Brother since its 2000 debut. She did not discuss or allude to Moonves’ ouster at any other point during the broadcast.
