Julie Chen's 'Big Brother' Sign-Off Was Not a Dig at Ellen DeGeneres

Julie Chen went off script during the latest episode of Big Brother and signed off from the show by sending a message to viewers.

A lot of fans thought that Julie was sending shade at Ellen DeGeneres by bringing up the “golden rule,” but she’s now explaining what she actually meant.

“From outside the Big Brother All Stars house, I’m Julie Chen-Moonves, and remember the golden rule: ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.’ Goodnight,” Julie said on Thursday night.

As you probably know, Ellen signs off from her show by saying, “Be kind to one another.” That slogan has been called into question lately amid the allegations that Ellen isn’t actually a kind person and that there’s a toxic work culture at her show.

Julie opened up about what she meant by that saying while talking to EW.

“I feel fortunate that the network and the producers have been so supportive in letting me put my own personal messaging at the end of our live shows,” Julie said. “I chose to close with those words because Black Lives Matter and now is the time to speak up. If the number of Black lives that have been taken happened to people of your heritage, you would be saying (fill-in-the-blank) Lives Matter! It’s my faith in God that is getting me through these uncertain times. We CAN be better. Why not try? It can’t hurt. It can only help. Most of all, it’ll help the person who rises to the occasion.”

Here are all of the celebs who are showing support for Ellen amid the controversy.

Frankie Grande Is Confident He Would Be The One To Beat If He Was On 'Big Brother: All-Stars'

Frankie Grande thinks he would be amazing on the new season of Big Brother: All Stars.

Speaking to TooFab, the alum says that he think would’ve been a great pick to be on this season.

“I’ve always said that I would play Big Brother again, and I do believe that I will play Big Brother again,” he shared in a video interview.

Frankie adds that while he’s not on this season, it’s probably better that way: “I think everything happens for a reason and I’m so grateful that I am where I am right now.”

“I’m in a place where I can be supportive of my family through COVID-19. I think the world is benefitting from having me exactly where I am right now, everything happens for a reason and I’m great.”

Frankie does think that had he been on the show again, he would be the one to win.

“I think the reason why I’m not on Big Brother is because someone wanted somebody else to win. Because if I was in that house. I would’ve won,” he says. “No question. I would’ve dominated this entire season. I’m watching and I’m like, ‘Oh my god. I would’ve won.’”

Find out why this other fan favorite from the reality show isn’t on the season either.

Big Brother's Josh Martinez Isn't Competing on 'All Stars' Due to False Positive Coronavirus Test (Report)

Some fans were surprised that Big Brother 19 winner Josh Martinez is not competing on the current season of All Stars. We now know why.

Earlier this week, Josh himself revealed that he would not be competing and to not listen to any rumors about him.

Josh was invited to quarantine with other contestants to possibly compete this season, but TMZ is now reporting that one of his numerous COVID-19 tests during the two week isolation period came back positive. It’s being speculated that it was actually a false positive, as every single other test he took after was negative.

A source told TMZ “the one positive was enough to scare producers who felt it was too risky to put him in the BB House with the other contestants.” He does not have the virus and has been seen out in Los Angeles with friends.

Be sure to check out all of the contestants competing this season.

'Big Brother' 2020 Premiere Recap: First Twist Revealed, Plus HOH Competition Spoilers!

SPOILER ALERT - This post contains spoilers from the season premiere of Big Brother: All Stars!

The latest season of Big Brother has began and Julie Chen promised fans that there would be a big twist revealed in the first episode!

Julie told the audience at home that the new twist will give two contestants the chance to be safe in the first eviction of the season.

The 16 All Stars playing this season weren’t introduced to fans until premiere night, but it was well worth the wait because there are so many great contestants this year!

During the premiere, contestants entered the house in groups of four and played a competition immediately upon walking into the house. The first two contestants in each group that finished the challenge then moved on to the Head of Household competition, though only six players earned that shot.

The head of household competition was won by Cody Calafiore and he’ll be nominating two contestants for eviction later this week. Of the other five contestants who played in the competition, four of them (Nicole A., Ian, Memphis, and Kevin) became Have Nots for the week and the other, Christmas, won $5,000.

At the end of the night, the big twist was revealed!

There will be something called the “Safety Suite” this season and Julie says that inside the safety suite is something every single houseguest will want. Throughout the summer, new rooms in the house will be revealed and each room will shake up the game like never before. Soon, each contestant will be given a VIP pass to the safety suite. How will the room work and how do contestants get their VIP passes? We won’t find out until Sunday night!

Here’s how Big Brother producers plan on keeping contestants safe from COVID-19 during the summer.

After entering the house, each group of four went right into a competition and the first two contestants to finish earned the chance to move forward to the first Head of Household competition of the season.

'Big Brother All Stars' 2020 Contestants - 16 Rumored Cast Members Revealed

Big Brother All Stars is premiering tonight on CBS and the network has not even released the full cast list of who may be competing this season.

Putting this season together proved to be a bit of a challenge for CBS from the start due to the COVID-19 pandemic. None of the contestants could enter the house with Coronavirus, so each potential cast member had to go through a strict quarantine and testing process to ensure a clean bill of health before competing.

Because of this, CBS has not yet released the names of the contestants and instead, will reveal the cast live during the show tonight.

We’ve compiled a list of the 16 rumored contestants taking part in the season as of the latest available information. Of course, this could still change up until the show debuts at 9pm tonight!
