In a new story on Sunday, Farrow cited a former intern who said that Fager once groped her at an office function and described the culture as "sexist" and a "boy's club". Moonves has denied the allegations.

In August, the CBS board of directors hired two outside law firms to investigate the initial claims against Moonves, as well as other reports of sexual harassment and "cultural issues at all levels of CBS".

"From outside the Big Brother house ... I will be back soon and will see you Thursday night on 'Big Brother.'" While Thursday night's live Big Brother started off with Chen acting as though everything was completely normal, it was the powerful sign off she gave at the end of the show that threw viewers for a loop.

She echoed her Twitter statement in an episode of "The Talk" on July 30. The allegations - which go as far back as the 1980s - include forced kissing, forced oral sex, unwanted advances and physical abuse.

The network also announced that it and Moonves would donate $20 million to organizations "that support the #MeToo movement and equality for women in the workplace". "What is true is that I had consensual relations with three of the women some 25 years ago before I came to CBS". It could also be that she is making a statement to the network that she isn't going anywhere, no matter what controversy might be attached to Leslie Moonves.

He concluded, "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".

He continued: "In my 40 years of work, I have never before heard of such disturbing accusations". 'He has always been a kind, decent and moral human being. It could be that she is simply offering support to her husband and letting everyone know that she will continue standing by him.

Prior to Les" resignation, Julie released a statement saying "I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the late "90s, and I have been married to him for nearly 14 years". She did just that but still has yet to make a statement about how she feels about the recent allegations against and investigation into Moonves. "This is a terribly stressful time for her and she absolutely blames Les for putting her in this miserable spot", a CBS source tells us.
