"I'm Julie Chen Moonves. Goodnight," she wrapped up a segment, hours before announcing her departure from CBB and The Talk.
"Good evening, I'm Julie Chen Moonves. Welcome to the Celebrity Big Brother two-night premiere event," said Chen, 49, in this week's episode. Her comeback came five days after the network confirmed her hubby would not be receiving a severance package following his CBS sexual misconduct scandal.
Also a shocking CBB reveal was Scaramucci's entrance.
Upon arriving on the set of the show, the former Trump Communications Director introduced himself as a business person and entrepreneur who got fired from the White House "for using curse words."
Though he still talks to Donald Trump once or twice a month, Scaramucci, 55, said he expects his time on the show will "last longer than my stint in the White House, god willing."
"I haven't come across one person who doesn't think I'm nuts for going into the Big Brother house," Scaramucci admitted. Regardless, he seemed optimistic about his reality career.
"I started at the White House my first day with a chain saw and hockey mask," Scaramucci joked. "I left a big mark there and I expect to leave a big mark on the Big Brother house too."
