Julie Chen is back! The longtime CBS host has returned to the Celebrity Big Brother stage four months after exiting the daytime chatfest, The Talk, as her husband, former CBS chief Les Moonves’, sexual misconduct scandal played out in the headlines.
Chen posted a happy photo to Instagram that shows her posing on the set of Celebrity Big Brother, which airs on CBS, the network that ousted her CEO husband following rampant sexual misconduct allegations him that surfaced last fall. The scandal caused Chen to step down from her high-profile post as the moderator on The Talk, a position she had held since 2010.
Julie Chen’s new photo comes less than two weeks before Celebrity Big Brother’s second season premieres. The CBS personality, who has hosted the hit reality competition since its debut in 2000, captioned the pic by writing that she is “excited to be back on this stage.”
