Default Update: Julie Leaves The Talk / Wonder What Julie Has To Say About Les? Not Much






Les Moonves Accused of Sexual Harassment by 6 Women; CBS CEO Says He 'Never Misused' His Power

New details have emerged about CBS Corporation president Leslie Moonves‘ alleged sexual misconduct, after six women spoke out against him in a New Yorker expose published Friday.

Reported by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ronan Farrow, the investigation details incidents of unwanted kissing and touching by Moonves, as well as intimidation, across multiple decades. An excerpt from the article reads:

Six women who had professional dealings with him told me that, between the nineteen-eighties and the late aughts, Moonves sexually harassed them. Four described forcible touching or kissing during business meetings, in what they said appeared to be a practiced routine. Two told me that Moonves physically intimidated them or threatened to derail their careers. All said that he became cold or hostile after they rejected his advances, and that they believed their careers suffered as a result.

Four women — Illeana Douglas, Janet Jones, Christine Peters and Dinah Kirgo — spoke on the record with Farrow. Moonves responded to their allegations with the following statement, in which he admits he “may have made some women uncomfortable” throughout his career, but “never misused [his] position” to stop any woman’s career in its tracks:

Throughout my time at CBS, we have promoted a culture of respect and opportunity for all employees, and have consistently found success elevating women to top executive positions across our company. I recognize that there were times decades ago when I may have made some women uncomfortable by making advances. Those were mistakes, and I regret them immensely. But I always understood and respected — and abided by the principle — that ‘no’ means ‘no,’ and I have never misused my position to harm or hinder anyone’s career. This is a time when we all are appropriately focused on how we help improve our society, and we at CBS are committed to being part of the solution.

Big Brother host/The Talk panelist Julie Chen, who has been married to Moonves since 2004, issued a statement of her own on Friday, saying, “Leslie is a good man and a loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader… I fully support my husband and stand behind him and his statement.”

Farrow’s investigation into CBS and Moonves had been rumored for several months. Ahead of the article’s publication, it was reported Friday morning that the expose would include allegations against Moonves, which prompted the Independent Directors of CBS’ Board to issue the following statement:

All allegations of personal misconduct are to be taken seriously. The Independent Directors of CBS have committed to investigating claims that violate the Company’s clear policies in that regard. Upon the conclusion of that investigation, which involved recently reported allegations that go back several decades, the Board will promptly review the findings and take appropriate action.

Moonves, who also serves as CBS Corporation’s CEO and Chairman of the Board, is not the first CBS staple to be accused of sexual harassment. In November 2017, journalist Charlie Rose was accused by multiple women of making inappropriate phone calls, exposing himself and groping them without their consent over a 20-year period. Both CBS and PBS quickly severed ties with him.

Well, this is interesting. Unfortunately it doesn't surprise me. True or not, this will damage his career, just given the current climate.

Although - Chris Hardwick is back hosting the AMC talk shows ... So ...

Why are most men pigs? Because it has been allowed and promoted for ages! Behaviors that were considered allowable are no longer allowed.

While the actions were abhorrent, in some respects society is changing the rules on men long after the actions took place.

Not trying to excuse or justify the behavior or the long overdue reactions to it... Just saying....

Most men aren’t pigs. Most of us couldn’t imagine acting like this. I don’t even know any men that do these things. And it’s not about men. It’s about power. What is one of the places that women have a lot of power over males? Teaching in school. And what do they do too often with that power? They use it to prey on the weaker young boys. It’s all about the strong preying on the weak. It’s as old as humanity, and it’s not going to change. The human race has moments of greatness, but we aren’t nearly as great overall as we think. We rape, murder, prey on the weak, let people starve, and on and on. Sadly, that’s just how it goes. Life if filled with victims and oppressors. Have a nice weekend everybody!!!

I was hearing these stories about his treatment of women even before he married Julie. There is no way she doesn't know, but she has a "good" life these days and won't do anything to rock the mealticket.

Look at him. Look at her. Now look at him again, then look back at her. Think this marriage was the real deal? Prolly not so much. Alas, she got what she needed from it and really, he isn’t needed anymore for her.

And I don’t know YD... I think most men might just be pigs when they are in the position to be. I think to a lesser extent, women probably are too when they are in a position to be, just not near as many.

There's been about 20 or so cases that we've heard about in the entertainment industry. There's obviously more that we don't know about, but there are tens of thousands of men in the industry that have power of females. If the majority of them were sexually assaulting women we'd be hearing a lot more than that.

Julie stated on the View that she stands behind him. I’m reserving judgement on this one. Something feels off. For now.
