Julie Chen is definitely standing by her man.
The “Big Brother” host — who has remained silent since her husband, former CBS chairman Les Moonves, was oused from his gig — signed off the show on Thursday night by using her full married name for the first time ever.
“I’m Julie Chen Moonves. Good night,” she ended the show by saying.
Julie Chen is standing by her husband. She signed off tonight’s @CBSBigBrother, for the first time ever I believe, with: “I’m Julie Chen Moonves.”

Chen has been a fixture on CBS for years, hosting various shows for the network, and has never once used her full name.
This was her first appearance on-air since Moonves was dismissed on Sunday — she has skipped her gig on “The Talk” this week.
While Chen has not spoken out fully on the issue, other prominent women at CBS have — Gayle King called the situation “difficult,” while Sharon Osbourne said she believes more women will come forward.
