Fans of Julie Chen love watching what perfect outfits she’ll come out with on her shows The Talk and Big Brother, but many are curious about the TV star’s love life, career, family, and more, especially now that her husband, Leslie Moonves, has resigned from his CEO of CBS role following sexual harassment allegations from multiple women. Scroll down to learn everything you need to know about Julie.
Who is Julie Chen married to?
Julie Chen’s husband’s name is Leslie Moonves, who just happened to be the CEO of CBS, the network in which both of Julie’s shows are on. The couple previously tied the knot on Dec. 23, 2004. Leslie was first married to Nancy Wiesenfeld from 1978 until she filed for divorce in 2003.
However, in recent months, Les has been under fire after six women accused him of sexual harassment in a July article written by Ronan Farrow. And on Sunday, Sept. 9, he announced he’d be leaving the network after six more women spoke out about his behavior in a new exposé on him in the New Yorker also written by Ronan Farrow.
“For the past 24 years it has been an incredible privilege to lead CBS’s renaissance and transformation into a leading global media company. The best part of this journey has been working alongside the dedicated and talented people in this company. Together, we built CBS into a destination where the best in the business come to work and succeed,” he said in a statement yesterday. “Untrue allegations from decades ago are now being made against me that are not consistent with who I am. Effective immediately I will no longer be Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CBS. I am deeply saddened to be leaving the company. I wish nothing but the best for the organization, the newly comprised board of directors and all of its employees.”
In July, after the first news originally broke, Julie issued a statement, which proved she was standing by her husband’s side amid the allegations.
“I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the late ’90s, and I have been married to him for almost 14 years. Leslie is a good man and a loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader,” Julie tweeted. “He has always been a kind, decent, and moral human being. I fully support my husband and stand behind him and his statement.”
During The Talk on Monday, July 30, she revealed she would not be addressing the issue any further. “Some of you may be aware of what’s been going on in my life the past few days,” she shared. “I issued the one and only statement I will ever make on this topic on Twitter. And I will stand by that statement today, tomorrow, forever.”
Julie has not yet spoken out about her husband resigning from the network.

Every decision I’ve made…it got [me] to where we are today, and I’m not going to look back.”
