"Julie only comes to the live shows, not the other ones where games are played or anything else," the source told exclusively.

But Chen had a particularly strong support group on set — the crew.

"The executive producer of CBB is a woman and a lot of the crew are women and they are all rallying behind her," the insider dished.

"They are all really supportive of Julie. They are a very loyal group of women."

Moonves had not dared to show his face on the CBB, set the insider told

"Les has not come to the show once since the scandal broke."

As previously reported, Chen’s on-set demeanor drastically changed after her husband’s sex scandals broke and he was forced out of his job as the head of the network.

"Julie is so different after the whole Les situation. She doesn’t talk to anyone unless it is necessary on the set," the source revealed.

"She really keeps to herself now and she’s much more guarded," the source said. "She used to chat with the people in the audience and with any staffers around her when she wasn’t on live, but now she doesn’t really do that anymore."
