Julie Chen Makes a Grand Return to ‘Big Brother’ After Les Moonves is Ousted

Julie Chen is letting everyone know just how excited she is to be back on the ‘Big Brother’ stage with a photo announcing her glorious return for the celebrity edition of the show.

Chen hasn’t been back at CBS since her husband, disgraced ex-chairman Les Moonves, left the company amid a flurry of sexual misconduct accusations.

Moonves has publicly said he’s “retired,” but he has not yet spoken out since CBS announced they were denying his $120 million exit check after claiming their internal investigation revealed Moonves acted inappropriately while in his position.

Chen, who previously announced herself as Julie Chen Moonves, announced, “So excited to be back on this stage,” with her arms extended high into the air. Throughout his downfall, the former host of “The Talk” supported her husband and defended his character.

The second season of “Celebrity Big Brother” premieres on January 21, and although they have not yet revealed the cast, we’re told Dina Lohan has been one of the celebrities approached with a $100,000 offer to participate in the show.
