CBS News underscored in its coverage of the CEO's exit that he might not be seeing that $180 million he was promised if he was sacked.
Later, she says, Moonves told her the studio had no work opportunities for her. The latest reported incidents occurred in the 1980s and early 2000s and include claims that the executive forced women to perform oral sex on him, exposed himself, and used intimidation and physical violence, according to the New Yorker story. According to her agent, Moonves had no intention of hiring a woman for that spot; even though he may have interviewed one or two for the job, it was all for show.
"Concurrently with the settlement, Leslie Moonves will depart as Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer effective immediately".
In July, actress Ileanna Douglas told Farrow that Moonves had pinned her arms down and forcibly kissed her during a business meeting, and fired her after she refused to participate. In the statement, Moonves said he was "deeply saddened to be leaving the company". All of them said they believed their careers had suffered because they rejected his advances.
"He took my whole career", Golden-Gottlieb, now 82, said on "GMA".
The Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter detailed allegations, including sexual assault, from six additional women against the 68-year-old Moonves, who had already been accused of sexual harassment by former CBS staffers last month.
That Moonves could be entitled to such a high severance is "completely disgusting", said one of his accusers in the New Yorker article. Moonves denied the charges, although he says he had consensual relations with three of the women.
But the host continued, "Now after seven more women have come out, the stories are so similar, the pattern is so similar, that for me, it's not being convicted of any crime, but obviously the man has a problem and I'd like to say, Mr. Moonves should step down, and Mr. Moonves is an extremely wealthy man and good luck to him. I can only surmise they are surfacing now for the first time, decades later, as part of a concerted effort by others to destroy my name, my reputation, and my career", he said. I didn't know what was going to happen to me, ' she said. "Moonves declined to specify which three encounters he considered consensual".
Julie issued a statement saying she will be appearing on "Big Brother" this Thursday, adding, "I am taking a few days off from "The Talk" to be with my family".
"That's a joke, it's so bad", she said of Moonves' statement.
With those optics in mind, CBS said Sunday night that Moonves and CBS will donate $20 million to organizations that support the #MeToo movement and other groups fighting for workplace equity for women. "The donation will be made immediately, the statement said, and deducted from any severance he ultimately receives", CBSreports.
These are the latest accusations against Moonves, following a July report with six initial women's stories that prompted the CBS board to investigate Moonves' conduct and consider his departure.
In January 2018, Shari began pushing for CBS to merge with Viacom which was vehemently resisted by Moonves and the CBS board.
But Sunday evening's announcement specified that any severance "will depend upon the results" of the ongoing internal investigations into his behavior. The CBS Board of Directors has an obligation to move swiftly and decisively to create a safe work environment for all and rid the company of this toxic culture. "This is very serious and the appropriate actions need to take place and so I am happy women are heard, because for a long time they haven't been".
