Julie Chen Rumored To Be Back! Will Big Brother Return?

I posted yesterday about Julie Chen being out at The Talk, but it appears she isn’t quite ready to give up her position as the Queen of Big Brother just yet.


TMZ is reporting that CBS sources have told them Julie is definitely welcome to return to the show if she wants, and sources close to Julie have said yes! Awwww, the marriage continues.


Keep in mind the biggest story of this issue is not who will be hosting but IF there is a show to host. The show is usually picked up for another season or two by this point, so it’s certainly alarming not to hear anything, but as I said yesterday I really believe that had to do with Julie. She may have something in her contract to prevent a renewal without her or they may have just been waiting until she’s officially ‘out’ to announce anything. I mean it would certainly be pretty awkward for them to announce a new season but not sign Julie on as a host then run her out there to finish out her contract.


However, with the news of their relationship allegedly remaining together, this should open the door for CBS to hopefully announce a new season soon. There is nothing holding them back at this point other than inking her to a deal first.  I’m cautiously optimistic at this point because the network would be foolish to shut down the show considering the incredibly loyal fanbase along with solid ratings.

Side note – As the season is ending, I need some ideas for blogs to start while I wait for a new BB season. I tossed around the idea of Teen Mom again – although I’d have to start watching it again which is easy because they were just so fun to snark on. I’d do Survivor and other similar shows but there really isn’t anything to talk about 6 days a week so I need something to fill the space. With a show like Teen Mom, they’re always doing something (like getting arrested) so there is always something to write about.

I could do a general entertainment blog discussing movies and TV. I’m not sure how well the generic blogs do because I know people like to focus on one specific issue. Thoughts, ideas?

    90-Day Fiance. That show’s a trainwreck-a-minute.

  2. AIO_7

    “Thoughts, ideas?”

    Politics? World events?

  3. Seattle Kari

    You asked for ideas. You seem to follow Survivor? A lot of us have mentioned it. I know it’s starting a little soon, next week, but that would be fun. Or the Amazing Race would be cool too..

  4. Joy

    aaahhhhh Steve, I have never watched Teen Mom and I’m surprised that anyone on this blog did or does. No judgement here but you do you.

    I’ve always watched Survivor and I do watch Amazing Race (not all the time) and (sorry folks) couldn’t with Cody and Jessica. But if I had you and your team recapping episodes I would definitely be here for that.

    As for Julie going back to The Spew or The Squawk, or whatever – my granny always said “Water seeks its own level.” *shrug* The Icky Clique is what they ought to be called. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5roz5-wdjBg

    So it appears JC has changed his alliance to Kaycee since Tyler is not listening to him and keeps putting him on the block. But he knows Angela is the one he can beat in F2. So Tyler going home tomorrow is JC’s plan?

      Unless JC wins POV he really has no influence over who goes to jury tomorrow.

    • Alda

      I love the interaction with JC and Kaycee.They are hilarious together.

      • Tinkerbell

        Yes, so funny, and cute. I love their interesting conversations. I even loved their “S” word game the other night. It went on a long time and was endearing. I think they will be friends after the show. I hope so. It would be so good for JC. They are family now. That many hours, days, months….they have a special bond.

      • Jenny

        I also hope JC has found a new family in this BB group. And I REALLY hope that his family will reconnect with him some day. Maybe if not his parents, he might have siblings, aunts/uncles or cousins who could reach out to him.

        Kaycee is just so sweet with everybody and I don’t think it’s an act. Anyone who gets to count her among their friends is lucky!

        Jenny, JC’s family needs to know it’s their loss not knowing and accepting him for who he is. Love JC.

      • LynnD

        I really like JC alot also. I think no matter what the outcome with this Final Four JC will remain friends with both KC and Tylor. I also would like to see KC’s family reach out and be like an adopted family for him.

    Blog for The Challenge on MTV. They have started having prior Big Brother contestants on there now so it would still tie in to your current blog.

  8. TerryD

    Off season recommendations to blog about: Survivor, TAR, Bachelor, BIP, and any other reality TV shows with spoilers. I don’t watch Teen mom but I do still watch The Challenge. I like to be spoiled on reality shows because it makes my husband mad when I know something he doesn’t LOL.

  9. HappyHippo

    The only ones I watch are big brother and survivor so I guess I don’t have any good suggestions..except back to back big brothers…if only

  10. kneeless

    Do feeds return after tonight’s episode or back at BBAD?

    Do one on the Kardashian’s I wouldn’t read but a lot of people seem to have an opinion about them.

  13. Tinkerbell

    90 Day Fiancee. It’s sooooooo bizarre, it has to be watched. I’ve been watching it a long time. What does that say about me?! lol. Every season I think it can’t get more bizarre……but it does. Weird-o-rama trainwrecks. Makes my skin crawl, gives me the heebie jeebies, makes me question my choice of tv shows and sanity – I just love it. Hahaha

    Matters not who wins the POV. All it means is KC goes up and either Angela or Tyler come down or Noms stay the same.

    JC has made final 3 with the HOH win. So now it up to the lone voter to decide who is in the F3.

    Tyler has painted himself in a corner and has no choice but to take Angela. He can choose KC but the showmance will take a fatal hit.

    KC can choose Tyler if she wants but it would be a foolish move he is the only one that can beat her in a Comp and sets up an interesting battle if they both make final 2. If KC is wise she will pick Angela knowing she can beat her in the comps and all members of the Jury are not fans of Angie.

    Angela can choose KC if she wishes they have been close all year. Tyler will be disappointed but he will respect her decision and like most Men he will still be in lust excuse me love with Angela. Angela can choose Tyler which will tick of KC and represent just another member of the Jury that doesn’t like Angela.

    JC got his one and only win of the season. I doubt he will win the any of the 2 stages to battle for the final HOH.

    If Tyler escapes Wednesday without being sent packing his best chance to win is vs JC or Angela in the F2.

    KC is in the Final 2 she wins hands down vs anyone.

    Angela only chance to win is to go up against JC.

    If Angela wins veto she takes herself down and KC goes up. Angela then decides who leaves. I think she would send KC to Jury. If JC wins veto things stay the same and KC, being the only vote, sends Angela to jury. If Tyler wins veto he takes himself down and KC goes up, but then Tyler has to decide between the two girls. I honestly don’t know which way he would go. He has a better chance against Angela, but he seems to have been pretty loyal to KC all along. If KC wins veto there is no replacement nom, so I guess she just decides right then and there who goes??? I think she takes Tyler because of the loyalty. Guess we will see! But I wonder if we will see the HOH comp on tonight’s show or the first part of tomorrow. (?)

    If Tyler wins BB then I predict that Angela and Tyler will stay together (until the $500K runs out)
    If Angela wins BB then Tyler is history.

    I have a question about finale night… do the jury members actually carry both houseguest’s keys in their secret bag? Is there the potential for a jurors mind to be changed by one of the F2’s speeches? My thought was they have long made up their minds and their bag only contains 1 key, then why the speeches that night? Why not have them pre recorded so that the jury members can actually hear what the F2’s have to say and then make up their minds. Maybe they WILL hear something that could change the way they see things.

    • LynnD

      After the last person is evicted and on stage so it leaves just the final two each person is handed the black bag with the two keys in it. When they go up to vote is when they take one of the two keys out of the black bag and put it in the big wheel.

    • AIO_7

      I’ve always noticed 2 keys. You can see them fumbling around. The have to be careful not to show the name to the camera.

      • LynnD

        I was watching some YouTube videos and one of them was the BB Best/Worse something and one of them was the BB Canada and some idiot voted for the wrong person and stood on stage and argued with them forever about it. That gave me the biggest laugh. So yes they must be careful because like that host said the rules are the rules.

  19. LynnD

    I finally was able to catch up. Super crazy day for me. I wake up to find Sam gone (WOO HOO) & JC is HOH Great job little buddy! Then after work took my Teenager to get her permit today (so I just put another teenager on the streets, please say a prayer) and it has taken me a long time to read everything to catch up.

    I said days ago I don’t care who wins as long as the 4 that are now sitting there, were the final 4. So I’m very happy. (Though sad we couldnt get all this on the feeds) but I am counting down until 8:00. I feel like I’m waiting for Santa to come.

    As for my thoughts on blogs for other shows I’m not huge on Survivor but I watch it if it happens to be on the TV at the time I love The Amazing Race I have no idea what this 90-day whatever you guys speak of and I’ve never watch Teen Mom but I have seen plenty of the cast in the news.


    • Tinkerbell

      Lynn, Another driver…..get the hair color out. Those are fun times, kind of. Is it rude to say……I’m glad it isn’t me. I already served my time. haha. So exciting for the kiddos though.

      I love your “waiting for Santa.” Perfect analogy. I feel it. If you’re bored, above in the thread I posted a clip from 90 Day Fiancee. There is not a single normal person on that show. The only normal person, is me watching. Now that’s funny – and a lie.

      • LynnD

        Tink it was not rude at all I totally get it. I always bragged about what a great child my daughter has always been and always on honor roll and I couldn’t have asked to raise a better human being until…….. let’s just say she should count her blessings that I took her today and that fingers crossed in one year I allow her to actually get her license. So I guess this time next year when BB 21 is coming to a close everyone can adk and find out if I still have a child or not? (And if the FBI is reading this I’m just kidding) sorry thats a little joke me and my best friend always say.

        Tink I also watched your video. I think those people are a hot ass mess. Don’t know if I could really sit and watch that. However, maybe I should and then I won’t think my life is such a hot ass mess. J/K

      • Seattle Kari

        my Miracle, my beautiful beautiful Miracle daughter is almost 20. Believe me I feel your pain, LOL. Because she just graduated a year or so ago and the cost of living is so high she is still living at home. I’m hoping she’ll be back in college soon. But female Teenage Drama? OY OY OY!!!!

        Old school mommy here, I set limits and she did not go past them without paying for it. To this day she hates the song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want!” Teeheehee!

    Housewives/Vanderpump Rules. They are a hot mess, have reports on them all the time, and all the different cities overlap so there’s always something to talk about.

    • LynnD

      OK! Now all those shows including Vanderpump rules I do watch. Faithfully! Love Them! Who doesn’t love some Andy Cohen? I think THAT was a great idea.

    • LynnD

      Which is your favorite City?

      • LO1004

        I love the OG crazies, OC. Then Beverly Hills next. I love that they all overlap. I’m such a Bravo junkie. How about you??

      • NKogNeeTow

        I don’t know how you girls do it. I use to watch just about all of the housewives
        show. After a while, they just always seemed to get drunk, fight, go on a trip, make up, come home, get drunk and start all over again. They finally wore me down…lol

      • LO1004

        NK, that’s the beauty of it. It makes me feel great about my life and decisions because I’m not middle aged and getting ‘naked wasted’, acting a fool for the world to see. They are batshit. I love it and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Haha 🙂

      • LynnD

        LO & NK ~ I feel the same way. It’s depressing these bitches don’t struggle to pay the bills. However, I sure wouldn’t want to be friends with any of them. I don’t think any of them know how to be a true friend. That’s one of the reasons I love to watch them. Who doesn’t like to watch a train wreck as it is happening. They make me grateful for my life (struggles and all). 🙂

        My Fav is (maybe) Beverly Hills, then NY & Atlanta. I do like Potomac (High Society at it’s lowest lmao) Just started watching Dallas (still unsure what to think about a few of them I mean seriously could you be any faker) and the OC I am actually not so interested in anymore. I still record them but they are just kind of sitting there. I live right outside of Palm Beach (where Luanne went to jail) I’m waiting for a RH of Palm Beach.

  21. Jenny

    Maybe this has already been discussed, and I missed it… but…
    According to my TV schedule, the finale is one week from TODAY.
    So… Tomorrow, Sunday and then Wednesday. And I’ll have to find something to occupy the part of my brain that doesn’t want to think.

  22. Mr. Beardo

    If Julie does decide to leave CBS I could see her departure looking something like this. Especially the ending lol!


  23. AIO_7

    It’s a happenin’ !

  24. Tinkerbell

    I have been so worried thinking JC probably would not have a letter from family for his HOH. I just read that he did NOT have a family letter. They said his DR was very sad. Thankfully he had a letter from a friend. I said before I did not like JC early in the season. He has stolen my heart and the Mama in me wishes I could protect him. I fret about him every day. I think the majority of viewers do not like JC. I love him. Even if people don’t like him, you have to feel compassion for him, and for his story. I think live feeders probably have a different opinion of him. He is loving, he is kind, he is funny, he is hurting terribly, he is lonely, he wants to belong and be loved. I pray his housemates will love and include him outside of the house, and I think they will.

  25. NKogNeeTow

    Good Evening. I’m Julie Chen-Moonves and FU CBS.

  26. Colby

    That veto meeting must have been in the middle of the night or early morning. They all looked like they just woke up.

    JC cracks me up! Lol…..and awwwww, Sam! What a gracious exit interview.

  29. AIO_7

    Tomorrow nights show should be good, but next Sunday’s show is must miss for me. That is the reminiscing show … blech.

  30. AIO_7

    I always thought that all four were eligible for the final HoH. Is this a recent change?

  31. hogwild

    It was pretty funny seeing three people think oh shit simultaneously.

  32. LynnD

    Okay I am now going to put my phone down and I’m going to watch tonight’s episode. I will be back in 45 minutes.

  33. LO1004

    Curious..does Julie usually mention jury round table and when it will be? Thought it would’ve been announced tonight?

  34. Malia

    I did not like the way they edited tonight’s show to look like they were in the kitchen having a good time and leaving Sam out. She went to bed and chose not to be up with them and make ice cream. They checked in on her more than once.

  35. Wizard

    I’d like Outlander and Gane of Thrones blogs.

    Or we could do a virtual BBJ show with all the commenters, then we could decide who to vote off the site…. Kidding

  36. LO1004

    The Walking Dead would be a fun blog too. There’s so much detail in every episode that when I talk to friends about it we all tend to catch things the other hasn’t. And this season should be full of drama with all the expected exits.

  37. NKogNeeTow

    Where’s Dan, Ann, Jannie and Mel?

  38. LO1004

    KC won POV!!! I’m hoping she takes it. She’s been my pick since day 1!

  39. Jannie

    I’m here! Decided to adopt our foster kitten, Jack. The one on my profile pic. He was 4 weeks in that picture, now he’s 10 weeks. We love him so much, but he’s a busy boy…getting into everything! And our old black lab is trying to mother him…all the time.
    I cracked up at Sam’s chipper attitude in her exit interview. If that wasn’t sucking up for AFHG votes…
    From the girl who was going to rip everyone limb from limb and burn the place down. I loved the way every time she was on the block she would say “I love you all and I really want to keep playing” and then crawl back to the stairway or HN room for the week. SO GLAD SHE IS GONE! Anyone watching the CBS show didn’t see 90% of her crazy.
    Hurray for JC!! The only problem I would have with him winning it all is his lack of comp wins. In a perfect world, Kaycee would win the game and JC would get AFHG.

  40. Seattle Kari

    my thoughts. I understand him wanting to Angela out but I think he should go for Tyler first because he’s more apt to win than Angela is..

    • Shivani33

      What happens if Kaycee doesn’t use the veto. She might as well, since she’s the sole vote. She takes one off the block and essentially the other goes home bloodlessly. Hahaha. Angela, get thee to a jury summit. Dan Gheesling has put Angela in his top ten picks for a female all-star season. So far his men’s list doesn’t include Tyler. It has a lot of geezers who won’t come back with their bedpans, hearing aids, hairplugs and medications.

      • Malia

        Why would she is the veto though? If she were to take someone down there isn’t a replacement. She is the sole vote now for top three.

      • Shivani33

        Unless she wants to do the gentlemanly thing for soap opera effect, of course no veto will be used. There is no point. I was not being serious. She has all kinds of choices but is 100% ready to go head-to-head thinking she and Tyler wiil eliminate JC and then throw down the gauntlet together. It’s the sportsmanship way. Courageous and noble.

        It also might be her game’s fatal error, to keep Tyler around at all.

  41. Seattle Kari

    I generally do not talk about Julie’s wardrobe, but she looked amazing in that bright pink color! Very classy. Not everybody can pull that off..

  42. FW aka CY

    Just watched the HOH comp. It seemed legit and an earned win by JC. I’ll throw slightly less shade his way out of respect. I was running out of descriptives anyway. 🙂 WTG, JC.
