Actress Cybill Shepherd alleged in a recent interview that former CBS head honcho Leslie Moonves canceled her show after she denied his sexual advances, RadarOnline.com can report.

The actress, who appeared on CBS’ Cybill in the late 90s, discussed her serious allegations against Moonves, 69, on Sirius XM’s The Michelle Collins Show. Shepherd, 68, said the former CEO propositioned her while they were out to dinner.

“His assistant and my assistant made a dinner date and we went to it and he was, well, he was telling me his wife didn’t turn him on, some mistress didn’t turn him on,” Shepherd said.

The actress then claimed Moonves offered to take her home while drinking.

Shepherd said she declined the offer because she had a ride with a friend. Following the uncomfortable encounter, the actress alleged that her show came under fire and was ultimately canceled.

If she did not deny Moonves’ advances, Shepherd claimed her show “would have run for another five years.”

Shepherd’s claims add to the long list of women who continue to share disturbing allegations against the former CBS CEO. Actress Bobbie Phillips recently told The New York Times about a meeting she had with Moonves, in which he dropped his pants and forced his penis into her mouth.

Moonves’ wife, Julie Chen, has stuck by her husband’s side after his firing from the top job at CBS. In September, Chen, 48, quit CBS’ The Talk after 9 years hosting the morning program.

The couple resurfaced last month at a ritzy restaurant in Beverly Hills and did not appear happy.
