Will Julie Chen Return to Host 'Celebrity Big Brother' 2019?

By Anna Quintana

Rumors are already swirling about the upcoming cast of Celebrity Big Brother, but fans of the CBS reality series only have one question: will Julie Chen — or should we say, Julie Chen Moonves — return as the host? 

Last year, Julie's husband, Leslie Moonves, stepped down as chief executive of CBS amid reports of sexual misconduct. In a statement, Moones denied the allegations, but the network still waived his $120 million severance package after an investigation concluded that he violated company policy.  

"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," Moonves said. "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."
