Cybill Shepherd is jumping on the bandwagon. Following the release of Les Moonves from his duties as the CEO of CBS, Cybill has come forward with a story suggesting that Les may have been the reason why her successful TV show was canceled after 12 Emmy nods and three wins.
According to Shepherd, Les supposedly made a sexual advance toward her when they worked together on her 90’s TV show. During an appearence on The Michelle Collins Show on SiriusXM, she said, “he was telling me his wife didn’t turn him on,” and that a mistress didn’t either.
Cybill went on to say that he offered to give her a ride home at another part in their conversation, and she refused, adding that she had a friend in her car who was a cop.
Shortly after that, her show was subsequently canceled, and she believes Les Moonves may have had something to do with it. As fans of the actress know, Cybill ran from 1995 until 1998 and – as it was noted earlier – it earned 12 Emmy nominations and three wins.
Mr. Moonves, on the other hand, had to resign after years of allegations against him came forward. As the reports go, Moonves was previously in talks of losing his severance package with the organization.
His wife, Julie Chen, is one of the hosts of The Talk alongside Sharon Osbourne and the other leading ladies. Sharon, during an appearence on Jim and Norton’s Radio Show, joked about Les, saying that he had bad breath and it was almost impossible to tell him that.
When asked if Les ever made a move, Sharon said no he did not, adding that he had a thing for women who were a little more docile. While Cybill’s story may be entirely true, some people online accused her of merely adding fuel to a fire without having any substantial proof or evidence.
As it was previously reported, Les had to step down after the New Yorker published a piece exposing some of his past transgressions, pointing to allegations going back all the way until the 1980s.
