CHRISSY TEIGEN: You've Been Mispronouncing Her Name
Chrissy Teigen has been a household name for years -- but you've been mispronouncing it all along.
The model and cookbook author has finally revealed the actual pronunciation of her last name. After telling Twitter followers she doesn't correct people "ever," she said it's not pronounced "TEE-gen." It's "TIE-gen."
In a Twitter video, Chrissy, “I’m tired of living this lie. It’s Tie-gen. Yup!”
JULIE CHEN MOONVES: Walks From The Talk
Julie Chen has not returned to The Talk. This appears to be a permanent decision as she will “voluntarily step aside.”
A source told the New York Post, (quote) “She is definitely leaving The Talk and will 100 percent stay with her husband, Les Moonves.”
CBS ousted Les Moonves for sexual misconduct. When the first allegations surfaced, Julie Chen stated, (quote) “Les has always been a kind, decent and moral human being. I fully support my husband and stand behind him.”
Chen’s other job with CBS, hosting Big Brother, also seems to be up in the air. The season concludes next week. Insiders suspect CBS will not ask her to return.
Talk About It:
- Awkward for The Talk to discuss #MeToo movement with Julie Chen sitting at the table.
- Best bet is for Julie Chen to announce her departure before October.
- The Emmy hosts took a couple of jabs at Les Moonves and other misbehaving Hollywood executives.
- Such a shame. Not her fault that her husband has a history of acting like a creep.
EMMYS: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Wins Big

TMZ called hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che's opening monologue "overly long," "overly topical" and "cringeworthy." The gossip blog said, "Some of the worst attempts at humor came in jokes about the #MeToo movement, with Che saying it was great being there with everyone who hadn't been caught yet. Jost also quipped that Roseanne Barr had canceled herself, but got picked up by white nationalists."
Tina Fey introduced the in memoriam segment and Aretha Franklin's "Amazing Grace" played during the montage -- which featured Anthony Bourdain, Jim Nabors, John Mahoney, David Cassidy, Hugh Hefner, Neil Simon, Burt Reynolds, John McCain and others.
