Julie Chen is no Chenbot.
Sure, the co-host of CBS' The Talk loves the Chenbot nickname that she earned while hosting the long-running reality show Big Brother, but she says it's been a long time since she looked and behaved like the robotic, picture-perfect newsreader from CBS' The Early Show, where she worked from 1999 to 2011.

It's secret week on The Talk, and host Julie Chen let a major skeleton out of her family's closet.
"My grandfather was a polygamist," she revealed on Tuesday's show. "He had nine wives, six of who bore him children. He had 11 children that we know of, countless mistresses."
The 44-year-old, who also hosts Big Brother on CBS, said that her grandfather's multiple marriages took a serious toll on her grandmother as well as her own mother.

When Julie Chen decided to reveal her plastic surgery secret on The Talk last week, she had no idea that it would trigger such a huge response.
The cohost revealed that she had surgery to make her eyes look bigger after a former news director told her that she would never make it to the anchor desk because of her "Asian eyes."
"The response has been a bit overwhelming," she tells PEOPLE exclusively. "When I decided to reveal this, I thought it would only create dialogue in the Asian community, as it's been a hot topic through the years for us."

The secrets just keep on coming from the hosts of The Talk.
This week, Sharon Osbourne revealed her long-ago fling with Jay Leno, Aisha Tyler opened up about her infertility struggle and Sara Gilbert said she realized she was gay while dating her Roseanne costar Johnny Galecki.
On Wednesday's show, Julie Chen, 43, said that racist remarks from a former news director led her to undergo plastic surgery to make her eyes look bigger.

Sixteen houseguests moved into the Big Brother house on Wednesday's premiere episode – and it wasn't long before the game play – and romantic entanglements – began.
"There are all kind of beautiful women in this house," said Howard Overby, 29, who had already caught the eye of pageant coordinator GinaMarie Zimmerman, 32.
But before any "showmances" could percolate, the alliances began to form. Overby aligned with railroad conductor Spencer Clawson, 31, and boat shop associate Jeremy McGuire, 23 ... but moments later, McGuire also joined an alliance with unemployed beauty Jessie Kowalski, 23, and lifeguard David Girton, 25.
"If nothing else, this is the best looking alliance in BB history," Kowalski said in the diary room.

Welcome to the Big Brother backyard!
The season 15 houseguests entered the Big Brother house just a few days ago and wasted no time making themselves at home poolside. Here's your first look at the group.
But the 16 houseguests – the largest cast in the CBS reality show's history – will not be spending all summer relaxing under the sun.
In a new twist, the show's two nomination chairs have been replaced by a "nomination couch" to make room for a third nominee's eviction every week. And a new power will be in play this summer as fans vote weekly for a "Big Brother MVP," whose special power will be explained by host Julie Chen.

Big Brother host Julie Chen teased there would be a "familiar face" among the season 15 cast announced Thursday – and it belongs to former contestant Rachel Reilly's sister Elissa Slater.
"I've always loved Big Brother and I've always wanted the opportunity to do it," Slater tells PEOPLE. "I hope people at home see that I am in it to win it and a force to be reckoned with."
Slater, 27, is one of 16 houseguests competing for the $500,000 prize during season 15 of the CBS reality show – the largest cast ever.
