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.

 

Had she went home with him, the actress believes that her show “would have run another five years.”

 

Moonves has been accused by numerous women of sexual misconduct. The accusation forced him to step down as the CBS Corp. chief. He has denied the allegations 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.
