CBS Boss Les Moonves Resigns Over #MeToo Sexual Harassment Allegations

CBS Boss Les Moonves Resigns Over #MeToo Sexual Harassment Allegations

The decision comes after 12 women alleged Moonves had sexually harassed or assaulted them, and in more than one case ruined careers by blacklisting women who rejected him.

There has been a lot of news regarding the host of Big Brother, Julie Chen and her husband of 14 years, Leslie Moonves.

"He's not been convicted of any crime, but obviously the man has a problem", Osbourne said. Golden-Gottlieb said Moonves forced her to perform oral sex on him, before destroying her career.

She explained Julie has been there for her over the last 9 years since the show debuted, and then walked a tightrope, saying she now believes the stories of Moonves' accusers are strikingly similar and credible.

Osbourne said, "It really broke my heart, and I don't care whether it was yesterday, 20 or 30 years ago, but somebody that breaks somebody's life like that has to be accountable. They felt this was a board that has let a powerful man who makes a lot of money for this company, in the words of one person, 'get away with it'". I didn't know what was going to happen to me, ' she said.

"Julie is our friend, this is our ninth season and we've been together since the beginning".

The statement Chen was referring to read, "I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the late '90s, and I have been married to him for nearly 14 years".

Moonves' resignation, following similar claims made by six other women against him, could be announced as early as Monday morning, according to sources familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified because the plans had not been made public.

They chose to run the "Philly Special" - only this time, it was dubbed the "Philly, Philly". "It felt like the right time". Other events include a performance by Shawn Mendes, and a ticket giveaway for Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta.

CBS, in a statement Sunday, said it takes the allegations "very seriously" and is conducting an investigation.

Eve, who joined the show previous year, added that "I've now come to care for every woman at this table and this is ridiculously hard". "We will accept nothing less than full transparency of the investigation's findings, a commitment to real change across all levels of CBS management and no reward for Les Moonves". But when it's somebody that you know, what do you say, how do you feel?

Co-host Eve said, "I support Julie and I'm praying for her and praying for her family".

"This is really hard", O'Donnell said during Monday's broadcast. In the statement, the university describes the latest reports against Moonves as "unconscionable" and stand in direct conflict with the values of the university. "I've never been nervous in my life, but I'm kind of very nervous right now".

CBS said in its announcement Sunday that the company would donate $20 million to organizations that support gender equality in the workplace.

Chen has not commented on the most recent story, though Moonves denied the new allegations in a statement, saying: "The appalling accusations in this article are untrue".

Moonves had opposed efforts by NAI, which is owned by Shari Redstone and her father Sumner Redstone, to merge CBS with Viacom Inc (VIAB.O), another company they own. Last week, multiple news outlets reported that Moonves was negotiating a possible exit with independent directors of CBS' board.
