In an interview on SiriusXM’s The Michelle Collins Show, the actress, whose career spans decades, said Moonves made a pass at her one night while they were at dinner.
“He was, well, he was telling me his wife didn’t turn him on, some mistress didn’t turn him on,” Sheperd explained. “And … he says, ‘Well, you know, why don’t you let me take you home?’ I said, ‘No, I’ve got a ride.’ And I had my car outside with a good friend of mine who is an off-duty LAPD officer.”
Then, “quite shortly afterward,” her show, Cybill, was canceled, she said.
Cybill ran from 1995 through 1998. The series ended abruptly, the final episode a cliffhanger with the words “To be continued…”
Had she gone home with him, the actress believes that her show “would have run another five years.”
Moonves has been accused of sexual misconduct by numerous women. The accusations forced him to step down as the CBS Corp. chief. He has denied the claims or said the encounters were consensual.
Moonves’ $120 million severance package is in serious jeopardy as more allegations of misconduct and abuse of power come to light.
