Julie Chen Moonves It’s not just talk about what’s to come Older brother this season, but she’s also reacting to the houseguest deal taylor healthyIt has caused quite a stir on social media.
The long-time host, 52, is addressing fans who feel the personal stylist is being unfairly targeted by her fellow competitors.
“I’m not obsessed with live broadcasts, so I haven’t seen everything that people say,” she says exclusively. U.S. “I can say that if you were to talk to Taylor, I’m not so sure she meant what everyone says, because a lot has happened behind her back, which is classic. Older brother.”
Julie refers to microaggressions inside the house, which have caused former guests and members of big brother 23‘s Cookout Alliance to speak out in support of Taylor.
“I will say that microaggressions are real and happen every day,” says the CBS personality. “When they happen, typically the person who is the aggressor, many times that is not his intention. I will say the Older brother home is no different. When you’re put in this house and everyone is your competitor and you see people as a threat, sometimes when playing, people will play so hard and start launching a campaign of, you know, ‘let me bad-mouth someone behind’ . her back.’”
Julie compares home to high school and “not in a good way” to “little jealousy and gambling,” adding, “Who’s someone to judge others? We’re not in a position to judge. We haven’t walked in that person’s shoes. We’ve never been in the Older brother house competing. And I think at the end of the day, we all have flaws. We all need to practice forgiveness, compassion, mercy and grace.”
As for the live eviction on Thursday July 14, Julie cannot reveal if the rumors of eagle dove leaving the game are true, but he says they will be addressed in the episode.
More details about this summer’s twist will also be presented. “We’re going to reveal more angles of the ‘Backstage Boss’ twist on tonight’s show and have a new twist for guests next week,” he explains. “[The houseguests] you will have been together for a couple of weeks 24/7 and you will meet people. The guests of the house will have to have “Older brother best friend.”
Julie adds, “We’re going to have a live competition that’s just the first part of a multi-part competition that will determine the power in the house that will play out on the Sunday night show.”
big brother 24 airs on CBS Wednesdays and Sundays at 8 p.m. and Live Thursdays at 9 p.m.

us weekly: Hello Julie. So the feeds have been down. What can you tell us at this hour about what is happening in the house? There have been some rumours…
Julie Chen Moonves: I can’t address the rumors that are going around here, however, those rumors will be addressed on tonight’s live eviction show. I told you when we first talked before, we even launched the season where our first live eviction night would be like no other live eviction night in the history of the game. And boy, is that true? It’s going to be a show that’s constant… as I’m talking to you right now, I’m getting text messages from Older brother saying, “Okay, the script we sent you last night is completely changing.” I don’t even know what to expect right now. I can’t wait to get into the office. So yes, questions will be answered on tonight’s live eviction show.
U.S: Is there still an eviction live or do we not even know about it?
JCM: I can’t address that right now.
U.S: What can you say about the twist and how it’s going to affect things?
JCM: We’re revealing more angles of the “Backstage Boss” twist on tonight’s show and have a new twist for guests next week. all i can say is [that] guests will have been together for a couple of weeks 24/7 and you will meet people. Guests will need to haveOlder brother best friend.”
U.S: Will there be another competition, like a Sunday night competition?
JCM: Oh yeah. That is going to happen. Tonight, we’ll have a live competition that is just the first part of a multi-part competition that will determine the power in the house that will play out on the Sunday night show.
U.S: I have to ask because there has been some uproar on social media, rightfully so, about how Taylor is treated in the house. There has also been an outpouring of support for her from former guests – the Cookout alliance has spoken out on the matter as well. What have you seen and what do you think about how Taylor is being treated?
JCM: I’m not obsessed with live broadcasts, so I haven’t seen every single thing people are talking about. I can say that if you were to talk to Taylor, I’m not so sure she meant what everyone says, because a lot has happened behind her back, which is classic. Older brother. I will say that microaggressions are real and they happen every day. When they happen, typically the person who is the aggressor, many times, that is not his intention. I will say the Older brother home is no different. You know, when you’re put in this house and everyone is your competitor and you see people as a threat, sometimes when playing, people will play so hard and start throwing a campaign of, you know, “let me litter.” talk, someone behind your back.”
Older brother, in a lot of ways, it’s like high school multiplied by 10,000, but not in a good way, you know, petty jealousy and games and all that. But I would say who is any of us, even if you watch every second of live broadcasts, who is anyone to judge others? We are not in a position to judge. We have not walked in that person’s shoes. We have never been to the Older brother house competing. And I think at the end of the day, we all have flaws and we all need to practice forgiveness, compassion, mercy, and grace. And I feel like when people come out of the house and see and hear what they did in the house, if they can learn something from that and be humble, then let’s encourage each other. Let’s build each other up. Let’s support each other to be better.
U.S: Guests go through sensitivity training. They learn about microaggressions before they enter the house. Do you think there are more nuances that should be taught and explained, with colorism, for example? Because some people don’t seem to be aware of what they’re doing. How do we combat that?
JCM: That’s a great question. It’s one thing to be lectured about it. No one walks through life thinking they are offensive. We all think we’re normal or, you know, we’re good people. And then you get into it Older brother house and a lot of things come your way. It’s exhausting being there. It is very hard. It’s challenging on every level, and you have no privacy. You can’t just boot and just unzip and you don’t have your support system. So I think at the end of the day, the hope is that you learn something by watching yourself. And I would say, don’t pay so much attention to what is internet chatter. But, reflect on yourself after you’ve been in the house and see, you know, what do I like about what I presented? Who do I want to be when I appear in the world? And pivot and adapt from that.
U.S: We have definitely seen examples of racism before and racially motivated comments in the Older brother House. I know you’re not a producer, but at what point do you think production should get involved? Is there anything that can be done to make sure she’s okay and safe, and maybe not give a platform to some of the people who are causing this?
JCM: You know, again, I think Taylor, she’s not aware of a lot of things, the way people feel about her. She is difficult. You can’t just walk in and tell someone other than himself. You cannot interfere with the game. You can remind them that you have to be compassionate as a human being. That has nothing to do with the game because what you give, you can expect to get back. You don’t want to start telling people how to behave. You are there to watch this social experiment and see how human nature unfolds. I don’t think the person [in this case] Taylor, who, a lot of people who are becoming fans of her and trying to defend her, I don’t think is even aware of what’s going on. If I had to ask, is he being mistreated by the other guests? I’m not so sure that she agrees with what is being talked about on the Internet.
U.S: I want to ask about Paloma. She started this “girls on girls” alliance but left Taylor out of it and then proceeded to say mean things about her, a bit of which we saw in last night’s episode. Is that a girls girl?
JCM: That’s a good point. What is a girls girl? I think a girl’s girl is hopefully someone who, no matter what, will stand up for another woman just because of her gender, right? Someone who’s going to say, like, “Yeah, I’ve been there, I’ve done that. I am imperfect. Or, “I haven’t been there. I haven’t done that. I’m not going to judge, but I’m going to have an open heart for you and be understanding just because it’s hard in a man’s world to be a girl.” So that’s a very good point. You know, you can’t say “I support all women” out of one side of your mouth and then out the other side, bad-mouth someone.
U.S: Anything else you can tease before we talk about the tour, the festival, or what’s coming up?
JCM: I’d say keep an eye out for the festival I can’t wait for, which is Zing Fest. Zing Bot needs its own festival. Only we have more twists and turns unfolding tonight, next week and just stay tuned.
