LOS ANGELES (AP) — Julie Chen returned to television with an unusual sign-off days after her husband, Les Moonves, resigned as the CEO of CBS after sexual misconduct allegations.
The 48-year-old ended Thursday’s “Big Brother” broadcast by saying, “From outside the ‘Big Brother’ house, I’m Julie Chen Moonves. Good night.” Usually, she just says “Julie Chen.”READ MORE: Gang Member, North Texas Sex Offender Added To State's 10 Most Wanted Lists

Chen was absent Monday for the season premiere of “The Talk.” In a statement, she said she would be off for a few days, but she did not address the allegations against her husband.
