Julie Chen Proved She’s Sticking By Her Husband

1 Comment

After the news broke that Les Moonves is stepping down as CEO of CBS after 12 women accused him of workplace sexual harassment and assault, his wife Julie Chen announced she’s taking some time away from The Talk to be with her family. When the first round of allegations against Les came out, Julie was quick to defend Les and “fully support him.” As promised, Julie returned to TV during last night’s episode of Big Brother and made it clear she’s working from The Tammy Wynette Guide to Standing by Your Man.

Usually at the end of each Big Brother episode, Julie will say the words: “From outside the Big Brother house, I’m Julie Chen. Good night.” Well, Julie closed the show last night by saying:

“I’m Julie Chen Moonves, good night.”

Ah, it just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it. Nothing awkward, forced or cooked up in a publicist’s office about it at all.

Julie has been married to Les since 2004, and has always gone by Julie Chen.

Julie’s new last name drop was technically the only thing that could classify as a comment on the Les situation. She didn’t talk about the additional allegations published Ronan Farrow and The New Yorker. CBS is still in the middle of an investigation into the allegations, and it’s been said that the results of that investigation probably won’t be made public.

Variety points out that the confidentiality of the investigation might not have had anything to do with Julie’s lack of comment last night. Contestants in the Big Brother house are cut-off from the world and have no knowledge of what’s happening on the outside. It probably would have been super confusing for Julie to kick off this week’s Head of Household competition by asking everyone to play a game called “So, do you think Les Moonves is guilty or no?

“Designing Women” Is Getting A Reboot

1 Comment

Because nothing is sacred and we should expect the announcement of “The Bible 2: Here We Go Again”any day now, Hollywood is looking at what is left on the clearance rack at what TV shows haven’t been rebooted and trying them on for size…but some shit apparently has been staring them in the face for years now and it took this long to bring it back. It’s being reported that Designing Women is next up for a return to TV, and it even has the original creator, Linda Bloodworth-Thomason behind it…but what about Julia Sugarbaker’s monologues?!

Deadline says it’s been 25 years since the original ended its run, and Sony Pictures is heading up the new version. As a southern gay by birth, this is essentially the second coming of Christ we spent every Sunday morning planning for.

CBS is already bringing back Murphy Brown, and it already has a Hawaii Five-0 reboot, so it really should just rename itself TV Land going forward.

It’s unclear what direction the new show will go in, but clearly some new cast members are needed since Dixie Carter and Meshach Taylor have passed away (RIP). That being said, the original was highly political and campy, so a return of Annie Potts, Jean Smart, and Delta Burke making cracks about Omarosa and Donald Trump amid draping a wall of a study in chiffon before they end each episode with “And THAT, Margery, just so you will know and so your children will someday know, is the night the lights went out in Georgia!” Seems like a sure-fire ratings hit to me!

There are lots of very smart people doing fascinating work on cryptographic voting protocols. We should be funding and encouraging them, and doing all our elections with paper ballots until everyone currently working in that field has retired.

What If Trump Has Been a Russian Asset Since 1987?

4 Comments and 13 Shares

And it would mean the Russia scandal began far earlier than conventionally understood and ended later — indeed, is still happening. As Trump arranges to meet face-to-face and privately with Vladimir Putin later this month, the collusion between the two men metastasizing from a dark accusation into an open alliance, it would be dangerous not to consider the possibility that the summit is less a negotiation between two heads of state than a meeting between a Russian-intelligence asset and his handler.

It is often said that Donald Trump has had the same nationalistic, zero-sum worldview forever. But that isn’t exactly true. Yes, his racism and mendacity have been evident since his youth, but those who have traced the evolution of his hypernationalism all settle on one year in particular: 1987. Trump “came onto the political stage in 1987 with a full-page ad in the New York Times attacking the Japanese for relying on the United States to defend it militarily,” reported Edward Alden, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. “The president has believed for 30 years that these alliance commitments are a drain on our finite national treasure,” a White House official told the Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin. Tom Wright, another scholar who has delved into Trump’s history, reached the same conclusion. “1987 is Trump’s breakout year. There are only a couple of examples of him commenting on world politics before then.”

Based on Trump's behavior I have wondered if he's a real life Manchrian Candidate but sold out to self-interest rather than brain washing.
