On Thursday night, Julie Chen, host of CBS’s Big Brother and wife of disgraced former CEO Les Moonves, made what appeared to be a statement in support of her husband during her sign-off. While she did not directly address her husband’s ouster from his role as the longtime head of CBS at any point during the actual show, she did opt to sign off as “Julie Chen Moonves,” having not previously used Moonves’s surname professionally. Les Moonves was ousted from his role after being accused by twelve women of sexual harassment during his tenure as the chairman and CEO of CBS. Here’s a clip of Chen giving her sign off:
