And while in the past there are already rumors that Chen is not particularly well-liked by her co-hosts on “The talk” in 2011 New York Post article it was reported that Chen told her castmates, “My husband can fire your asses any day,” it seems that at least Osbourne remains close to the host.

Moonves responded to the rumors that same year and said, “Someone who knows my wife knows she would never say that,” he said in Newsweek.

Chen and Moonves began their romance in 2003, when he was still married to his wife Nancy Wiesenfeld Moonves.

When Chen’s relationship with the CBS executive was public, she was the host of “The Early Show” on the network. She has since nabbed the role of host on “The talk” and “Big Brother” both, of course, on CBS.

Moonves and Chen share one child, a son named Charlie.

Farrow, who broke the news about the Moonves sexual assault allegations, appeared on GMA on Saturday morning to comment further on the details of his New Yorker expose.

“These are the stories, one after the other, verying in degree of severity to women who say they were pinned down and strugged to escape and women who were expected to be taken seriously – these are the stories the women said that they felt scared and intimidated and felt their career surfferd as a result,” he said.

Farrow added: “I would say that these women feel that A) in a number of cases, these are what they described to be sexual assaults that were very severe, and B) it certainly is not accuate to describe that time as only 20 years or more.”
